really good clean,comfortable hotel. Breakfast was very enjoyable and staff very helpful and polite. Beware the lift is very slow and on the 6th floor the noise from what I presume was either the air conditioning or lift mechanism on the roof was noticeable both day and night. They are also refurbishing the bathrooms and I had constant noise for... More

Excellent central location, don´t look further if plan to visit standard tourist attractions! Five minutes walk to tube and a bus station next to the hotel. A lot of shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Nicely decorated interior and very pleasant rooms (without closet, just several hangers). Well heated (in January). Spotlessly clean! Wi-fi worked well. Breakfast was good enough... More

This hotel has a great location for all the major London attractions. The rooms are sufficient for a short break, all the usual amenities. The breakfast is great, however the seating area is not sufficient for the amount of people using the breakfast facilities. The reception staff are lovely and very helpful. The room rate is a little more expensive... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for two nights in December. We had two rooms, one accessible with an adjoining room for my son. Holiday Inn Express accessible rooms are generally very good but this one was exceptional, probably the best disabled room I have stayed in. It was larger than the norm and the accessible shower was perfect. Quite... 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.
