If you need a base to enjoy the many atttractions in this part of London, then this is an ideal base. Better than average size rooms compared to many London hotels and at a very reasonable price. It was hot whilst we were there and the aircon was effective without being intrusively noisey. A basic breakfast is thrown in but... More

I spent 1 night here over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the find. For an express style hotel, I found the rooms more than adequate for a short stay. They lacked in wardrobe space and luxuries but they did have facilities for making hot drinks and an efficient room controlled air con, which was very welcome this past... More

The hotel itself was alright, close to Borough market and St. Paul's cathedral. The staff knew nothing of the area itself or where the nearest place was to receive tourist information. They were difficult to understand and do not provide adequate information. You are better off asking a local or going to the tourist information center across the street from... More

The hotel was good for a Holiday Inn Express. It feels like the rooms could do with minor refurbishment but they certainly aren't bad. The room I stayed in was at the end of a wing and was consequently quiet. Breakfast is a self service buffet, with douwe egberts coffee machines and a good selection of food. It's approximately 5...

We were visiting the Royal Festival Hall for our sons graduation, so this venue was ideal . Also it's close proximity the river on a warm summer's evening was a bonus.

For some reason, the website and staff members fail to mention the fact that there are two convenient underground stations - Southwark and Blackfriars. There are also two bus lines which pass by the hotel. The first room we got had a broken toilet and a window that wouldn't shut, so the receptionist immediately sent us to a room in... More

The room cleaning staff took away stuff from my room. Front desk staff can not understand English. They also denied me use of Air Conditioning in the room saying they need to save operating costs. Left the windows in the room open. With all the construction activity around the hotel there was dust in my room every day. Management of... More

Spent 3 nights pre-cruise sailing from Southampton. Thankfully had booked in advance to find a very reasonable rate during the high tourist season. Waited a short time with others in the lobby area but were made comfortable by Francesco and his staff. We were treated to refreshments and maps etc. We were very happy with the room assigned to us.... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we were both on business in London. The HI Express hotels are usually very good value but not on this occasion, probably due to Ascot week.
