This is a very basic hotel. Rooms quite small but amazingly clean. No aircon, no mini-bar, no fancy views, no fancy restaurant. Just by a very busy road but I think that they have managed to reduce the level of noise quite well. First time in my life that I had a "shared" bathroom, but was surprisingly very clean and... More

Nice hotel -- stayed for 1 week in a single room with private bath. The room was clean and more than sufficient for my needs. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food at the cafe was good and reasonably priced. The hotel was easily accessible as it is located right next to the subway station. All in all, it... More

More for bussiness than leisure. The staff were professional (thank you Brian for your help!). Othrwise it's a kind of basic hotel.... More

Hotel was basic, service was ok. I. Future we would probably stay at a travelodge for similar money. The hotel was hard to find as it was just a door way within a row of cafes etc. there was no air conditioning just a fan in a tiny room on the hottest day of the year in London!

You won’t find a big sign identifying this place and it took me a few sweeps of the area to the small entrance by Borough station leading up a flight of stairs to the Office. Thereafter the very helpful receptionist guided me back downstairs, out of the front door, through the adjacent cafe to my ground floor room. Very small... More

A nice small hotel with excellent service, nice clean rooms and a good location, just above the Borough subway station, nice and quiet during the night, but no breakfast included, there is a nice cafe on the ground floor that has OK prices.

We booked a twin room with ensuite and found the room well appointed, tastefully decorated and the ensuite good quality fittings. All in all a comfortable stay that was close to everything. The staff were very helpful and even carried my bag a further two flights of stairs (we were on the third floor). The only slight difficulty were the... More

A fabulously comfortable hotel - just rather strange to visit at first - with a tiny door leading off of the main street and a set of stairs up to reception. but what the hotel lacks in first impressions is very much made up for by the customer care on offer from the staff, the well appointed rooms with exceptional...

My friend and I booked a twin room with shared bathroom at London City Hotel for our first 4 nights in London. I landed that day and found the hotel easily - it's right next door to Borough tube station which was really helpful. Our room was small, but for London it was expected. We had a sink, tv and...

Needed an inner city location for an early tour start the next morning. This hotel suited well! Staff were fantastic (Cristina and her co-workers) and very helpful. They all went out of their way to assist even when not sure themselves! Only point to note! Stairs, and lots of them... Not lift access! No air con either. But! Forgive them... More
