They did a great job to create really nice hotel rooms with a limited space. The children loved it! We loved it too, but it is good for a couple of nights, not for 3 or more. We got a little bit claustrophobic because we could not open the window, nor we had much space. We had to be creative...

Lets start with the positives. The hotel is new, clean and in a fairly central location. The rooms are reasonably priced and the rooms overlooking the courtyard are quiet. However, is it necessary to be bombarded with messages about how cool and funky everything is? I can usually tell these things for myself. It would be a good idea to...

I visited in July this year and I was blown away - the proximity to Tate Modern, all travel communications, combined with the amazingly comfortable and well equipped room, great food and a totally friendly young staff was just jaw dropping.

Very easy reservations and check-in. Easy to find from the train station - even dragging bags and having never been to London. Everyone was very friendly and the food was really good. I never heard another person while I was in my room - total silence. The blackout curtains and lights were incredible for dealing with any kind of jet...

We spent two nights at the CitizenM and for first timers it was a fantastic experience. From the easy check in to the easy check out, the stay was relaxed with our every need taken care of. The small but perfectly laid out room had everything we needed for a comfortable night sleep and an invigorating shower to start the...

We stayed here on our anniversary and enjoyed our 2 night stay. It's a little walk to places but that didn't bother us as we now London well. It's close to most attractions in London. The hotel is clean, bright and funky.

Great place to stay with a cool vibe, really convenient for Borough Market, Tate Modern, Shard, Tower Bridge and South Bank. A new concept for me - easy check in, no snotty receptionist and everything works! Bar area downstairs has a great atmosphere and always busy with tourists and people on business. Rooms are great; really clean and cozy -...

Great experience in CitizenM. The style inside is really nice, there a lot of humor hidden here and there, the rooms are comfortable. Controlling the room with a tablet is quite fun! You can select your own light color, the ambiance in the room, open or close the blind, control the TV and radio, ... all this from a tablet....

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.
