I was a little disappointed when I initially saw our room -- and the "view" of the back of other buildings -- but it turned out to be decent. Room was clean, a bit outdated, but comfortable. The pub downstairs was a big plus, and the location is pretty good too.

This hotel is ideally situated close to the South entrance to Blackfriars railway station and five minutes walk from the river Thames, so is a good base for exploring the South Bank area of London. It has a pub below it which serves a good selection of real ales (Fullers brewery) and also does great bar food. It is nice... More

Stayed here as part of a tour. Hotel was very nice. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The location was convenient to the sites of London. The attached restaurant is nice. We were pleased with the facility.

Hotel facilities are passable with most things covered, location is fine for business stay although the rear view is very poor showing a number of derelict building and the kitchen entrance.Stairs are steep and could cause an issue to elderly.Bar is good and the selection and quality off beer is fine.

We didn't stay in the hotel but stopped for refreshments after a visit to Tate Modern. The location is great. The decor in the pub is very inviting, seating is comfortable and an excellent selection of whiskies! It looks well maintained, it is clean and bright as are the loos. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The hotel reviews are... More

And the attached pub perfectly decent. Room at the back for peace from the traffic. Didn't try food or breakfast, but given what we wanted from a hotel for our night at the Young Vic (just 5 minutes round the corner) and access to the South Bank, absolutely perfect..

Took a group of US university students to London for two weeks and we stayed at the Mad Hatter. We had a great time....great, safe location for students to walk on the south bank and see the sights. Watched World Cup soccer in the pub--what could be better than that? Complimentary breakfast, and free WiFi for hotel guests. Great pies... More

The Mad Hatter Hotel is situated on the South Bank of the River Thames - not far from the Modern Tate Gallery and Globe Theatre. It is ideally situated and extremely good value - plus it has its own pub which you can access 24/7 (should you feel thirsty). If this hotel were located on the other side of the... More

This hotel is very well located for exploring all of the top London tourist destinations, by foot or by underground. The staff is very helpful, and even let us use their computer and hotel phone when our international flight was delayed. The breakfast, although a little pricey, is convenient and tasty. To add to that, the rooms are all individually... More

Stayed as guest of my organisation Good very comfortable bed with spotless towels and mini bottles of shower gel, lotion and shampoo. Toilet was little tight but very clean and excellent fire signage. Aspect was not good for my room 110, overlooking a derelict and rather scruffy courtyard but the breakfast was first class and of the highest quality with... More
