I stayed overnight at this hotel when I was looking for something well connected. It is right on the underground Borough station and exceptionally well connected by the Tube. On the booking of a room - I found I had to share a bath with another room ; so opted for a double room at GBP 30 more with an...

The staff were super friendly and attentive and made suggestions on places to visit while staying in London. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were very clean. This...

This is a decent London hotel. It's becoming increasingly expensive to stay anywhere near the centre, but this is a decent choice for tourists. It's literally on top of Borough's underground station, so getting there and about is easy. It's close to London Bridge and a little further to Tower Bridge, so there's plenty nearby, Being close to Borough Market...

Rooms are small but pleasantly decorated and spotlessly clean. Bed is very comfortable and towels are fluffy. Has TV and kettle. Free Wifi. My room was at the back of the cafe - a bit spooky letting yourself in through the empty cafe at night. However, it was quiet and I slept very well. The young (continental European?) staff are...

My boyfriend booked me dinner at the Shard and so he booked this hotel which was a 5 minute uber journey! It was such a cute, cosy and clean hotel.

I spent a night at this hotel with a friend as we were due in London for an event at the Royal Albert Hall. It is in a fantastic location, very central but directly next door to Borough Tube station which is so convenient. It has an understated front, being a simple door but the staff are so welcoming, even...

Great location next to tube station. Looks can be deceiving as from the outside we had doubts, it appeared small and uninviting but the room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Lovely big shower (yeah) and huge towels. Jug in the room for making tea and coffee and great biscuits provided. Hair dryer also provided. Sheets and bedding were great. View...

The rooms are clean, with a good location right next to the metro station, the poor is that there is no elevator, you have to carry your huge suitcases on a very narrow staircase, the departure is in 11 and the check-in is at 15 o'clock, these hours were very disappointing for us, We had rented a triple room where,...
