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...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 March 2017

London City Hotel was the highlight of my trip to Europe. It's located right next to the Borough Underground station which is super convenient for getting places in the city. 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...

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,...

Good location as it is close to the Shard and not far from Tower Bridge. Good location right next to Borough Tube if you are coming by tube. Bad location on Borough High Street which is quite noisy and a bit grotty immediately around the hotel The hotel itself is rather cramped but the rooms are well fitted out and...

Used due to location and was not disappointed. Despite being on a busy high street and between a tube station and a pub this was a gem of a find. Would highly recommend single ground floor rooms off the café area. Quiet and clean and comfortable. Great breakfast too.

I wasn't sure when I saw the outside of the hotel but inside it was clean and the staff were welcoming. We met the owner's daughter and she explained that the building and café had been in the family for years. The room had everything I needed - including hairdryer and great shower. Breakfast was in the café downstairs and...

I stayed here last year, and thought it was good value. I stayed in two rooms, a ground floor large single (which could probably just about house 2 people for a single night) accessed through their cafe, and then upstairs for a double room at the back,. Staff are friendly and super helpful. It's a great location, right beside Borough...
