The hotel is very small, the access is a little difficult as it's up steep steps, but the staff are super friendly and the rooms are very clean. Handy for visiting London as it is right next to the tube station. It is on a busy road and we had a road side room, but it didn't stop us sleeping.... More

I stay here often on business, and it's brilliant. The rooms are clean, fresh, well furnished and the staff are great. It's centrally located and next door to the tube! If you are travelling on your own, as I often am, it's perfect as there are places to eat close by so I always feel safe.

Well we stayed here recently and, apart from it being a little bit difficult to find when driving in a van late at night, I would highly recommend this hotel. We were greeted by the hotelier as soon as we came in the door. And we were shown to our room which, as you walked in you could smell the... More

The people at London City could not me more helpful. Genuinely thoughtful and caring, always ready to give information, directions, trip recommendations, or just to chat. My room was always spotlessly clean, and for a single was surprisingly airy and spacious. The bed was probably the most comfortable one I have ever slept in! ~ even more so than my... More

This hotel is very well situated for the tube. I arrived on the tube and exited and Borough high street turned right and the hotel entrance was just steps away. The staff was welcoming and friendly. I had a single room which was clean and smartly appointed. The room was quiet and offered a great respite after busy days in... More

My sister and I stayed in this little gem of hotel last week while visiting my niece who is studying abroad in London this semester. We walked in without a reservation after finding accomodations we had booked long distance were unacceptable. Anna and her staff worked very hard to piece together last-minute accomodations for us over the course of our... More

This is a small hotel above a cafe. The owners own the cafe and the hotel has recently opened. You do not entre the hotel through the cafe, as some reviews have stated. There is a door to the side of the cafe which leads straight up stairs to the reception. The receptionist very helpful and directed us to parking... More

Very convenient and trustworthy accommodation within walking distance of Central London attractions and right next door to the Underground station. Small, but clean and functional rooms. Helpful staff. Their new wifi system (at £6 a day) seems ridiculous for casual use when you can get free access down the Tube these days! We were unable to sleep with our room... More
