We chose this hotel based on proximity to our daughter's school, but it also turned out to be a great location for sightseeing around London. It is close by two underground stations, plus it is within walking distance to many attractions. The immediate area is pretty deserted at night walking home from Elephant & Castle, but there are a couple... More

We found the hotel rooms immaculate with lovely crisp sheets and fluffy towels. We are a couple of fairly fit senior citizens and 'do' London quite a lot. This small hotel is ideally situated for getting into the city and the buses from just outside are plentiful if you want to get to the West end. Breakfast in the Cafe... More

I stay at this hotel regularly and have had nothing but great service from all the staff that work there. The rooms are very clean and have everything you need to make the stay comfortable. I particularly like the rooms at the back of the café as they are modern and new, the showers are fantastic and with the lovely... More

The hotel is always immaculate well presented with attentive and very friendly staff. I have stayed many times preferring the intimacy and location to other more branded and larger hotels. Unlike a previous comment I too have had cause to change dates and itinerary and found the staff most accommodating and understanding without the need to heighten emotions. So please... More

The hotel is still lovely. The staff, whilst usually not initially from the UK, could not be more friendly, helpful and well spoken. They always help me get up the stairs (my only fault with the hotel) and shoot down to swiftly carry my bags, which I usually suspect weigh more than them, with a smile They have been amenable...

Located right near the London Bridge this is a great location. My room was through the dinner on the main floor. Just a little loud in the back street at night. But the room offered exactly what I needed. A comfortable bed, clean bathroom, TV, and fairly quiet. The staff was extremely helpful with bag check before my room was... More

This is a good no frills budget hotel(£150~ night ensuite) in a great location right next to borough tube station. I had room 2 which had obviously been recently painted - I had to have the window open with the fan on to get rid of the smell.... But smelling of new paint isn't a bad thing compared to other...

we had a twin room that was small and basic, separate shower and we. All spotlessly clean and very quiet. Great location for the South Bank and City. Reasonable price for London. Very convenient stay. Staff helpful and friendly, although took a while to get back in latte at night.

Excellent location and service! Staff very friendly and helpful, and the Borough Tube Station at one side of the hotel, perfect location, close to The Shard and the London Towe, I'm really thankful for everything! Keep it up!
