We booked a quad since I was traveling with my wife and teenage daughters. This provided a great value lodging for London. The location was excellent - just behind the Tate modern, and 5 minutes walking distance to the Bankside Thames river walk. Restaurants, tube stations, and train stations were also easy walking distance, so it was really a great... More

My friend and I, both pensioners, wanted accommodation in central London that didn't break the bank. Our main requirements were that it should be clean and have comfy beds. This fitted the bill excellently. The rooms are functional and clean. The beds were comfy and clean and the shower worked well. Both vital requirements for an oldie like me No... More

Stayed with friends. Rooms a basic and clean. Located a two minute walk from the Tait gallery and a short walk across the river to St Pauls. Only 1 mile walk to the Imperial war museum and a five minute walk to bankside and its bars. The breakfast is good.

We were very happy with the hotel. It is centrally located right behind the Tate Modern. It can be easily reached by train or the tube but it is also ideal if you prefer walking. It is not expensive compared to average London prices. Breakfast was amazing and the staff was helpful indeed. The room was OK, clean with basic... More

Room was very small and beds uncomfortable, bathroom was less than average. Location looks good but it is far away from the underground stations and transportation especially at night) isn't so easy.

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor.

We did not have much time in London but we wanted to see all the main sights, that's why LSE Bankside was a perfect solution. It was like in the heart of the city, but in a quiet buisness district - in the back of Tate Modern and 10 mins walk from London Eye. We didn't waste our time in... More

I stayed at Bankside for a week in August 2014. As other reviewers have noted, the massive advantage of the place is its location - Bankside is 5 minutes from the South Bank and within 10 minutes of London Bridge Tube Station and the Northern and Jubilee Lines. The rooms are extremely basic - what you see on a site... More

We were very disappointed of that student house. The bathroom was very dirty (hairs all over the place, dust) when we arrived, and only after 4 times of asking and false promises the stuff sent someone (at 11pm the second night). Even then, he just wiped the floor, without really remove the hairs. Obviously, they don't us hoovers in the... More
