Set on a fairly quiet road in Walworth 1mile from Elephant and castle and on the 343 bus route , this small hotel was excellent value for money but at a price! The rooms were just about big enough for the beds and the bathrooms were just about big enough for the toilet and shower. Clean but slightly dated bedding... More

This Hotel offers excellent customer service from a friendly staff. Even after hours, I had a concern which was addressed immediately and resolved very quickly regarding my booking. I recommend this hotel as it's reasonably priced, clean, safe, and in a great location!

I stayed here for one night with my mum as a 'cheap' option for visiting Chelsea Flower Show and seeing Mama Mia. After reading some of the reviews giving this place a very poor rating I was nervous - but we only needed a good bedroom for 1 night (£56 on Booking.com). I upgraded our room to an ensuite for...

We stayed here for 3 nights after arriving in London on a long haul flight from NZ. Although we thought the neighbourhood was a bit dodgy upon first impression, we soon realised it was fine and easy to get around in. The hotel itself was great, clean and tidy with modern facilities. It looks as though it's been done up... More

I recently stayed here on a two night trip to London. The hotel is located south of Elephant and Castle and so is quite a walk from the Thames and other attractions north of the Thames such as convent garden etc. we were here primarily on a budget work trip for a conference which was fairly nearby. While we agree... More

My wife, mother and I stayed here in May 2014 when my wofe and I were in London on business. The rate is very competative considering its location. The rooms were clean, slightly small and of a good standard. There is a pub on the bottom floor which is also cheap and serves decent drinks. The distinguishing feature of this... More

Peaceful place and like it because it is near my friend house. The hotel is clean and quiet and the management staffs are very helpful. Is about 10 minutes walk to the bus stop and to a bus ride to elephant castle about 5 minute to the tube
