The hotel is 5 minutes walk to Blackfriars station, 15 mn away from the London ridge. giving easy access to both underground and railway. It is located on the left bank but within walking distance to the millenium bridge, Big ben, and many other spots. You will need to walk more or take the subway to reach the other tourist... More

This is a small friendly staffed holiday inn geared up more for the business traveler. If you want The Globe Theatre,the Tate modern, the OXO Restaurant, Blackfriars and London Bridge stations this is an ideal hotel. If your looking for Oxford Street there are hotels nearer.

The hotel is next to Tate Modern and at a few minutes' walk to Blackfriars station. This provides quick access to both the underground and the railway connecting to airports. So it is very easy to reach, and a good starting base to explore London. The neighbourhood seemed nice, with places to eat and drink also situated minutes away. I... More

This was a comfortable hotel just 15 minutes walk from St Pauls and the city. Staff were excellent at check in and while breakfast could have been slightly better it was filling and set me up for the day. The only downside was that there was no facility for an evening meal. Overall the value of this hotel was excellent... More

We stayed at the Hotel, the staff is quite helpful in guiding. the room are quite comfortable and unlike other hotels they haven't charged anything extra for my kid for the bed. They have provided the Sofa cum bed for extra comfort. Moreover they are offering free breakfast for guests which good thing.

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.
