Very tiny, basic but FUNCTIONAL room. Air conditioning and Wifi were both excellent - which we found rare in Europe. With the very high costs of restaurants in the area the FREE breakfast really added value to the stay. Good breakfast too. And there was a little Asian lady working the breakfast who was so GENUINELY friendly each morning that... More

Clean room, helpful staff and very decent breakfast. Modern amenities and a telly that works! Shame there's no evening meal but there's a great range of places to eat nearby and a marks and spencer food hall. Wireless excellent. No complaints. The noise that others mentioned isn't that bad - I was on floor 1 at the front and it... More

First thing: It's a Holiday Inn Express, not a Westin. Knowing this, this hotel had everything I needed and wanted for the 4 days we were in London. Free breakfast with lot's of great options. Only about a 5 minute walk to the Southwark underground station. About a 25 minute walk to Parliament/Westminster and we really only took the underground... More

I was unsure about this hotel as it is more at the budget traveler, but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes the rooms are small but I could still get two suit cases in. The shower was the best I had in a month of traveling. Room clean and tidy slept well there. Easy access to South bank and Shard. Underground... More

The hotel was very nice. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was good, the rooms were clean. There is a small bar in the lobby/dining area. USB plugs near the computers for charging phones. The hotel is located a few blocks from the river Thames.

Spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Express Southwark in August. The location is a bit of a walk from the Southwark Station but once you get your bearings you realize that you are so close to the Thames, Tate Gallery and Blackfriars station. A few blocks away was a Marks & Spencer Food store for snacks and a few... More

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
