Thankyou for an excellent 1 night stay. Budget prices but a very good standard of accommodation. Particularly helpful reception staff and very good cafe downstairs. Clean and fresh, bed was comfortable and tea and coffee an unexpected touch.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a couple of nights at a weekend for a show at Southbank Centre (Jon Hopkins). We arrived, paid and were given an immaculately clean room on the ground floor behind the cafe Riva which is also owned by the hotel. For this we had a key to the cafe that closes at 4pm as... More

Sounds like SteveR752014 and I had nearly identical experiences! All and all, for a quick overnight before a business meeting, this hotel was completely adequate and a good value for the rate (keeping the London market in mind). Rooms are basic but decent sized, clean, with all of the in-room amenities you might need. Because I was pre-paid, check in... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for leaving a review although we are very sorry to hear about your experience. This level of noise is unacceptable and a rare comment. Our Receptionists are very aware of the importance of keeping noise to a minimum and know that they must approach guests should noise levels be rising. We have made some changes to... More

Hotel is very good value. The rooms are immaculate, the staff is extremely helpful, and the location is very convenient for travel anywhere in London--with the adjacent Borough underground stop. An added bonus is Cafe Riva, which serves the best cappuccino in London and delicious breakfasts. I stayed for two weeks in order to get my daughter settled into a... More

Dear Nora, Thank you very much for your review and for mentioning our cafe. I think it really does have some of the best coffee in London. It was our pleasure to help you as you settled your daughter into university. All the staff can appreciate what it is like when you arrive in a new country and City and... More

This is in a good location, next to a tube station on the South Bank. The front door looks a bit unpromising the first time, but on climbing the stairs (note - it's not a place for people who can't manage stairs) it is cosy, clean and has pretty much everything you need. My room shared a shower room down... More

Hotel was more than fine, facilities were good, room was very clean etc. All in all, good value for money. My stay was marred, however, by noisy neighbours, presumably in the next room, who were going to and fro and letting the doors slam until past 3:00 a.m.. Also, a 10:30 a.m. checkout time on a Sunday is unnecessarily early... More

Me and my sister stayed here for four nights and we are very happy with the service provided. The room was big enough, the staff were friendly and we had no problems whatsoever. I'm definitely staying here the next time I'm in London.

This place is tiny & you have a few flights of narrow stairs to negotiate, but it is exactly next door to Borough station, which has a lift, so is incredibly easy to get to (particularly from King's Cross). My room was very reasonably priced, clean, had a great bed & a strong shower. Staff were lovely. Within walking distance... More

Despite the Name this is not a huge Hotel right in the centre of London, however it is only half a mile from London bridge. Staff were very helpful, printed out maps for us, suggested restaurants, and were always cheerful and friendly. The room was well cleaned and equipped, the huge bed was excellent.
