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. The staff on the desk were excellent throughout our stay. The rooms, whilst not large , contained all we needed for our brief stay and the furniture and fittings... More

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. The room was sufficient for 1 night with enough space for two and a decent size shower room etc. We were at the front,... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Check-in was fast. This hotel is super busy but the front desk always seemed well staffed. We used points for our stay and were given a handicapped room. The room was fine, but guess that's what you get for being a club member and redeeming some well-earned points. Our room was plenty...

Over the bridge there are lots of restaurants opposite St Paul's Cathedral. Hotel on the doorstep for the Tate Modern. The hotel was fantastic value for money, despite being over £100 per night it...

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, a fair breakfast. Good location re: the underground. Helpful staff on check out. . We had a disabled room, which gave us a bigger room and a good sized shower. All in all, a good place to stay.
