The Staff at the front Desk were very helpful and did a lot to make my stay enjoyable.Special thanks to Maricel. I had a quiet room in the 4th floor.I dont understand why people in previous reviews said the hotel... More

During our stay our travel plans fell through and I want to thank Alvaro, Maricel, Laura and Fegensi for all of their help. We are IHG members and they helped us with late check out, printing our new itineraries and were most cheerful and wonderful. Breakfast was a nice English breakfast, hot and very tasty. The room was clean with... More

Second time in this hotel. Great position: Southwark tube station, Blackfriars station if you come from Gatwick (in that case use ThamesLink, more cheap rates than Gatwick Express ones), Waterloo station, tower bridge, Tate modern, London Eye, Southbank above all). Great staff. Good breakfast. Modern rooms, clean and comfortable. Fantastic view of the City the first time (not so good... More

Southwark is on the Bank Side of London, and the HIE is an excellent location for theatre goers of the Globe and Rose, and walking distance to most of the sites. In addition, the Southwark Underground station is just down the street. The hotel is newly renovated, with spacious rooms, modern showers and many room amenities. It is very quiet,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a family room. Hotel is in good location, 5 mins walk from Southwark underground, less than 5 minutes from Blackfriars Bridge and then onto Southbank or back to Borough Market way. Standard Holiday Inn Express, no complaints. Breakfast was fine, usual choice of cereals, yogurt, toast, scrambled eggs, sausages, beans. Room was fine, clean,... More

Free breakfast, free wifi, location is fantastic, 2 mins walk to the South Bank and Blackfriars Station, good collection of restaurants nearby, but venture out to the South Bank to the Founders or the Doggers.

Not my first choice of hotel chain, but was booked on my behalf. Check in was nice and quick and was very happy with the room. Big comfortable bed, choice of pillows, decent TV, good blackout curtains and most importantly it was quiet. My issue is with the breakfast. I stay in a lot of hotels and the breakfast here... More

I purchased a one night's stay at this hotel from lastminute.com for almost £120 via it's Secret Hotels option. It claimed that the hotel was ten minutes from the London Eye - all I can assume is that the people who work at lastminute.com must be superfast walkers! We checked into the hotel about 4pm and our room was right... 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.
