We have stayed at this hotel regularly for a couple of years and it is always an excellent visit, and very central. Friendly staff, clean rooms and a nice cafe. It's a good location, close to some good pubs and restaurant. If you are lucky you will meet John, the owner, who can tell you about the area before it... More

I had a brand new, spotless room with private entrance behind the lunchroom. Makes you feel like a local! Located next to the tubestation Borough, very convenient. Enormous, soft towels, rainshower, daily cleaning, nice bed.

The room was really clean and soundproofing. The common bathroom (for two persons) is not at all a problem. It was in the corridor close to my room and it was always very clean. The reception team was very kind, helpful and smiling.

I slept there only for one night with a friend of mine. We wanted an hotel which could be cheap and clean. That's exactly what we found. This hotel is clean, and very well located (about 1m from the tube station). We had a shared bathroom which was clean as well. The beds were quite good and the staff was... More

I needed a location that was central and convenient for the Waterloo/London bridge area. This hotel is right next to Borough station and suited my needs very well. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and I had a restful, undisturbed night's sleep. The room wasn't ensuite, I shared a bathroom with one other person but the... More

We booked London City Hotel as we were searching for a Hotel near all the main attractions in London. It is located right next to Borough Station (Northern Line). You don´t hear anything of noise from the station. You can reach Towerbridge e.g. in 10 minutes walking distance. The room (D) was excellent: spacious, very very clean, the bathroom also,... More

My secretary booked me into this hotel as I am here for 1 night on business. this hotel charges £119 for a single room (and I mean 'single') with a shared bathroom and no breakfast! it is cheap (not the price - the decor and fittings) and nasty. The shared bathroom has a bath mat that has been used by... More

We were fully booked on the night otherwise we would have upgraded you to one of our en-suite rooms. This room would not normally sell at this rate. Unfortunately we have recently... More

This hotel is right next to the borough tube station. We found the staff always asked if everything was alright. The rooms are tiny by western standards but as a place to sleep it fits the bill. Super sized towels was a big plus. When here go out the door turn right and try the fresh restaurant.

I stayed for 1 night in a double ensuing bedroom. The room and bathroom were clean and well equipped, the shower was amazing. It was a huge walk in shower with 'waterfall' style shower head, I didn't want to get out. The only thing that let me down was the size and view. I felt a little closed in as... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for leaving a review. I think you are right we may actually be the only hotel with an entrance through our cafe. However, as you discovered it does mean you have easy access to excellent coffee and delicious meals. It is fair to say the ground floor rooms do not have a view but... More
