Ideal location if you're attending events in Southwark. We took the tube over to Soho which wasn't too long or expensive. Literally used the hotel for a bed that night so cannot comment on the food service. Communal areas looked a bit like a school canteen and the staff seemed to be limited to what they can say and do.... More

Stayed here for the recent Bank Holiday weekend in August. Very convenient to explore London while in a quiet area away from the main noise of the City. Walk to the London Eye in 25 minutes or less depending on your speed and Southwark tube station easy 5 to 10 minute stroll. As Breakfast is included it is good value... More

Visited here on a recent theatre trip, the hotel is well located only a short taxi drive from all the major theatres but is significantly less expensive than most. The nearest tube is a 5 minute walk away but if there is more than one of you a taxi is cheaper. Our room was spacious and clean, the pull out... More

This is a good hotel for your Londay stay connecting you to close by tourist attractions by hop on hop off buses. Close to River Thames to take walks in the evenings! Take a cab from here to reach the major shopping area. Decent and clean basic rooms although a small fridge would be good for each room along with... More

We had previously stayed at the Crowne Plaza by Blackfriars Bridge and were well pleased with our stay.
