We stayed here for one night to visit the Globe and the London Film Museum. The hotel is conveniently situated south of the river and about 10 minutes walk from the Globe. On the 5th floor we had no issues with street noise, and anyway Southwark Bridge Road did not seem as busy as the roads north of the river....

This hotel is a bit further out than others, but if you don't mind walking it's a great option. Rooms were clean and have just been refurbished. Staff very nice at check in. Bar a nice relaxed atmosphere, seek out Lucien for his friendly manner and great Pina Colada. We did not eat, but food looked good when served in...

Good location & friendly staff. Went in at 3pm for Afternoon Tea and only one other couple there so wasn't a great atmosphere but the food was delicious. It was a beautiful day so didn't linger inside too long but had a great view of the Shard from our table. Would recommend.

The hotel is in a brilliant location, close to Borough Market and the tubes and in walking distance but very disappointed in the chaos of breakfast ...long queues to get in to breakfast with people jumping the queues and nothing said, no bowls, coffee machine needing attention and running out of mugs, tables not being cleared and staff rushing round...

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.

We booked a private taxi and it was reasonable. Train is a good option. Normal taxi out front of airport cost a bit particularly if there is traffic issues.

Thank you for your enquiry.

The closest tube station is London Bridge which is served by the jubilee and northern line which is 5 minutes from the hotel.

If you take the Borough High street exit and take the steps and not the escalator and then walk straight ahead under the railway bridge and you then you will see Thrale Street ahead of you and take a right into the car park at the back of the hotel.

We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel.

Yes,

Parking is behind the hotel. I think full prize for 24h is 25 pounds.

I assume not - at least I did not see any vapors in the public areas in the hotel. There are two exits, one to the street and another one to the backyard where you can go and smoke outside. The backyard has a nice view over to the Shard

Dear AnaRStgoChile, if you would like to use public transportation then you will have to take Stansted express train (50 minutes) or National express bus (1 hour 15 minutes) from airport to Liverpool street station. From there you can take bus number 344 (15 minutes) which stops just outside of hotel.
