I have stayed at the London City Hotel several times while attending weekends at the Southbank Centre. It's easy to find and the staff are extremely helpful - even recognising me on return visits which you don't expect in London. You will get a very quiet night's rest if you stay in one of the internal rooms. Just for one... More

If you are looking for a nice hotel with great access to the London Tube this is a hotel for you. It is located, literally, 50 feet from the Borough tube station and has a nice local cafe next door with a Starbucks across the street. We booked a double room but were upgraded, for free, to a flat just... More

I say it's small but that's exactly how the photos show it so other than that, for less than £100 with en suite can't grumble. Clean and exceptionally friendly staff. Checking in was a breeze and it was quiet at night. Offered a discount if I returned too, Spot on

Needed a one-night stay in London as I was on a 2-day course. I needed to be near Blackfriars and was after a hotel for under £100. Greeted by polite staff, my room was very clean, comfortable and the shower was excellent. Definitely recommend the pub next door for food also as there's no restaurant in the hotel. Don't be...

A great little hotel, comfortable, clean, right next to Borough Underground Station. Convenient for all the attractions on the South Bank. Family run, super friendly helpful staff. Fantastic little cafe next door, great quality food, really good coffee and super reasonable prices.

The hotel is wonderfully located in Southwark. Very clean (thank you housekeeping staff) and nice facilities (we were moved into a suite in a building just around the corner from the hotel). Staff was friendly and very accommodating for all our needs and desires. There are the city bikes for rent right outside the building. Simple cafes right below the... More

Although very tiny, London City Hotel was very cosy. The staff was very warm and helped in every way they could. The hotel is literally next doors to a metro station, so I had no problems getting where I want. My room was super nice and cleaned once a day. There was tea and coffee in the room as well... More

I arrived and was graciously welcomed. I had a wonderful private, clean room. Everyone in the cafe and hotel was friendly and helpful. I loved having in room coffee but also a wonderful cafe steps outside of my door to order breakfast or lunch. The bed was like home, nothing was lacking. It was literally steps from the tube and...

I'd definitely recommend staying here but you need to be aware of a few things: Really comfortable and clean double room (room 17); very comfortable mattress, comfortable and crisp linen and really good pillows. Great location. Good TV and channels. Good coffee and tea and biscuits in the room, and I noticed a good quality hair-dryer in a drawer. Ensuite... More
