Close to Waterloo station (walking distance) close to bus stop to Covent Gardens (RVI).and Southwick tube station. Lovely rooms, clean, very polite staff. Easy check in. We had an executive room overlooking the shard - lovely.

Room was decorated in the minimalist style. Bed was reasonably comfortable. Window was not very well insulated, so a lot of traffic noise got in from the busy Blackfriars Road below. Very strange set up of the shower room and toilet in that one side was glazed from floor to ceiling, giving no privacy at all. Considering this was a...

Thank you MartinW for your feedback about your stay, I am sorry that we let you down. Please be assured that I take all feedback very seriously and I will certainly be addressing the issues you experienced. We do have a privacy button which frosts up the window in the bathroom and I have to say we do not get...

friendly and easy check-in. Room ready before check in official time. Very nice room clean and big bathroom. Not the most beautiful area in London but easy subway connections (specially at Waterloo station a less than 10 mn walk). Good food at nearby Borough market. Close to Tate modern. Will definitely choose again this hotel for a London stay.

The room for a 4 member family was just OK but do not forget that a lot of hotels require to book two rooms. The ventilation in the bathroom could be better and the "opaque" glass system works but I think that it is not necessary to see the silhouettes of the other members of the family when they take...

Stayed here on NYE after booking last minute. Given the date, I'll ignore the price (looking at other times it seems more than reasonable normally). Friendly greeting and fast check-in, straight up to a spacious room. Slight panic over the full height window between the bedroom and shower but quickly found the button to frost the glass! Didn't spend much...

Perfect location (1 minute walk from Southwark tube station), great breakfast, ideal rooms - everything you'd need for a base from which to explore London. Friendly, competent staff. Pool was a big hot with the kids.
