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

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

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. Large Clean and easy to use... More

I must admit, I wasn't expecting much from low budget accomodation next door to the tube station but I couldn't have been more wrong. Perfectly situated next to the tube it was so easy to find and a perfect base for sightseeing. The staff were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful, we were shown to our room which was...

We stayed here for just 1 night with my wife and son. The hotel is very easy find to find, really 3 seconds walk from the exit of the tube station. We didn't stay at the hotel itself but were led to a studio appartment 1 block away. It was very clean and well equipped, including a kitchen that we... More
