This hotel is great value for money, in such a great location & is friendly & clean. The reception staff were kind enough to let us in our room early due to fact we had a reservation somewhere at 3pm & I needed to get ready...much appreciated! The staircases are a bit steep but apart from that I can't fault... More

I'm cheap, but I'm fussy and this ticked all the boxes. I wanted something spotlessly clean, safe for a single woman arriving back late, affordable for a cheapskate like me, and well-located for London Bridge. Others meet some of my criteria, this hit them all with fluffy towels and polite staff as a welcome bonus. I don't mind about space... More

This hotel is not the Ritz, nor does it set out to be, but it is value for money, clean, friendly, small and handy to Guy's Hospital, King's College, The Shard, and other London sights. It is also right on the doorstep of the Borough Tube Station making travel very simple. I shared a toilet/shower which is not ideal, however... More

Stayed here for one night with my daughter who had a University interview....Really beautiful inside, small, comfortable and everything you would need for a one or two night stay....rooms were very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Room 13 at the back extremely quiet - nothing bad to say the reception staff were very helpful and

A great hotel with warm and polite staff. The attached cafe is vibrant and serves a great breakfast. Conveniently located to local tube station. Rooms are small but perfectly equipped - shared facilities not for everyone but the shared shower and toilet were very clean and no queuing (lucky I guess). Never did find out if there was wi-fi ..... More

When out for the evening in London and know we will miss our last train home, we ALWAYS plan a stay here. Close to the tube, convenient for getting back into work the following day, the London City Hotel is clean, comfortable and great value for money.

What hotel hands you the keys to the cafe! I enjoyed my week's stay in the London City Hotel in a quiet downstairs room, clean, contemporary styled with ensuite behind Cafe Riva, which is a great address for your breakfast and lunch, and next to Borough underground station for public transport connectivity and also only a 5 minute walk from...

As we were going to the Southwark Playhouse to see GREY GARDENS this was an excellent choice for our one night stay. 40 minutes on the tube from Paddington and right next to Borough Tube station it was an easy walk to the theatre. Warm welcome from the friendly receptionist and set up all explained very clearly. Lovely large, clean,... More

I probably shouldn't tell too many people about this place in case they don't have room for me next time, but here goes... I needed a one night stopover near Tower Bridge and was delighted to find a room I could afford and that proved to be clean, comfortable and welcoming. I had a single room with shared shower/toilet but... More

It is very easy to get there while located directly at tube station Burrough. Outstanding friendly staff and quiet, clean room with nice furniture. Very good value. We would stay there again any time. Breakfast could be taken in the cafe bar next door. This is recommendable as well.
