Clean, modern, quiet room, excellent staff, breakfast was fine - all we needed for an overnight stay. Short walk to Shard and Tower area. Keep an eye on prices on the internet as they do really good deals at short notice.

We stayed for 2 nights just after Valentines day. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The room we had was a good size, but by having the sofa bed pulled out for our son took a good amount of this space up. The beds are comfortable and the shower is amazing! The staff are very friendly and will do whatever... More

Dear SqueakyRat, I hope you had a great Valentine's day at our hotel with a great stay. Our rooms are of a good size for the London standards, but can be a bit tight with the sofa bed open. I hope it still was comfortable for you and your family. As being an holiday in express, we do not offer... More

We stayed in this hotel after dinner at The Shard- was perfect! About a 10min easy walk away, clean spacious room, comfy (but small) bed and a great breakfast in the morning. Nothing too fancy, but pastries, cereals, a small hot selection and jucies. Very good value for the money paid compared to other hotels in the vicinity. Was very... More

After a long and tiring journey of over 12 hours, I just wanted to reach my hotel and sleep! Unfortunately, I was given a room adjacent to the elevator (I didn't know at the time). So every time the elevator door opened and closed on the floor I was on I was rudely awoken by the incessant creaking, squeaking and... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
