Good location, lovely friendly staff, was offered a map too from reception which was useful. Had a great stay here close to tube station, comfy bed & lovely choice at breakfast. Was able to leave our baggage till just before leaving in the evening, in store room so hands were free all day. Looking forward to our next stay.

This is a well located Hotel with very good staff. We stayed in a newly refurbished room which was just adequate with a small bed and not a lot of space. Perhaps ideal for the solo business traveller travelling light. Having staved at the Crowne Plaza Battersea the week before and a room twice the size, with a comfortable bed,... More

I think that the hotel is everything you would expect from Holiday Inn Express. LOCATION: If you don't mind walking. the hotel is not far from most of the tourist attractions in central London (about half an hour of slow walk to the London Eye on side or the Tower Bridge on the other); train and underground stations not far...

We recently stayed here for a quick overnight trip in London. It was very easy to find and less than a 5 min walk from Southwark station. Check in was super fast, as we arrived in the afternoon.

We are a young and foreign couples we have stayed in Camden and this one. Both have good locations. Camden one is cheaper and fancy although this is close to the lovely walk of Thames and walking distance to Big Bang and London Eye. The accommodation was quite decent and the breakfast above our expectations. Good money valeu.

Used as a base for visiting London. Two tube stops away from Westminster. Clean hotel with a modern feel to it. Good WiFi connection on the 4th floor and plenty to eat with the included breakfast. Room adequate for 2 adults and a child. Simple but excellent value for what you get and the convenience into London. Would stay there... More

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

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.
