Stayed for 4 nights at this hotel, as we know that Southwark is a good area for being able to travel around London. Myself and my wife spent two nights in a room on the 5th floor at the front of the hotel, but asked to be moved because of the excessive road noise. We then moved to the 3rd... More

After only paying £88 for a double room with sofa bed for our 15 year old son (including breakfast) our expectations were fairly low. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was immaculate, and had everything we needed. The bathroom was vey clean. Bed and pillows very comfortable, and we had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was fine, limited... More

We stayed here for two nights on our most recent visit to London, for the ICO Spring Screening Days at the BFI. We deliberately chose a budget hotel on the basis that we only needed somewhere convenient to sleep near to Southbank and so our expectations were not overly high. The room was quite small, basic but clean - and... More

I arrived at St Pancras and from there there is a train to London Blackfriars which is 5 minutes walking from the hotel. From the hotel it is possible to go to the several central areas of London such as Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, etc. The distance is about 15-25 minutes walking but it is a nice promenade,...

Stayed for a week whilst working near London Bridge & found the hotel to be good value for money. There was free wifi & complimentary breakfast (nothing special.. but a few cereals, toast & preserves and basic English breakfast). My only minor complaint was I was on the main road side of the hotel, so there was quite a bit... More

Good location, clean, and with all the basic facilities - nothing special. Free WiFi is a plus. My bed was a bit on the hard side, and the room was directly opposite the lift, so I heard people come and go. Otherwise it was OK. Breakfast was average. The fruit compote hadn't been defrosted, and the cooked choice was limited... More

For the price of this hotel I expected something redeeming about it! I didn't get it! The beds are rock hard and uncomfortable, so a mattress topper on them wouldn't go a miss!
