Stayed here "for one night only" while visiting London to see a show. Staff were friendly and helpful, check in was easy and the room comfortable and clean. The elevator is a touch on the small side (4 person max) and being an Express there is no restaurant but that's no issue as there are plenty nearby. Don't be put... More

I stayed in this hotel for 9 nights and I recommend it. It's cheap and the personnel is friendly and helpful, I really have nothing to complain. The only sound I heard from the adjacent rooms during my stay was the one produced by the hair-dryer, the walls are pretty thick and even the windows are well soundproof. I definitely... More

Close to South Bank and major London attractions. All within walking distance. Room was spacious, clean and the staff are great!

I stayed for 7 days in a room with a queen sized bed. (Hopefully, this is a helpful review also for first timers to London.) Overall Impression: An average but very decent hotel stay.

I spent almost one week at this hotel. ROOMS comfortable and certainly reasonable for the price. a sofa and working desk were useful and appreciated. Didn´t realize the window had an additional screen. First night I was troubled a bit by the street noice. When I noticed the extra glass, sound was virtually sealed off. LOCATION: 7 minute walk to...

Great hotel, new and decoration great. Bathroom very modern. Plenty of space in room and room very quiet despite facing the main road. Great location for all the southbank activities and 5 mins to Blackfriars bridge to reach the other side of the river.
