An excellent hotel. Staff are friendly and welcoming. We asked for some spare pillows and within 5 minutes we had them. The rooms, whilst not huge, are the perfect size for a couple and the beds are absolutely enormous! Incredibly comfortable too. The bar downstairs is excellently decorated and has a wide range of drinks and cocktails. We will return...

Great stay at this hotel. I chose this hotel as we were planning on dinner at the Oxo Tower and visiting the Tate Modern. Self check in was easy at this hotel, there were staff around to help out too. The staff at this hotel were all very friendly, from the reception staff to the cleaners to the bar staff....

By far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Futuristic and quirky with friendly staff and a free drink. Checking in and out was simple and we had a choice of what room we wanted to stay in. Hotel was incredibly clean. Could not fault on anything.

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.
