This quiet budget hotel in the heart of London is literally next door to the Borough Tub Station next door, and only a 5 minute walk to London Bridge. You enter the hotel through a street level door next to Café Riva and go up a flight of stairs. (There is no lift) The friendly, welcoming staff let us check... More

I was booked in here by my company for one night to attend training nearby and was very impressed. You enter from a downstairs door by the cafe and go upstairs to reception,. Someone took the trouble to leave the desk and come out to get me and welcome me befor I was half way up. The second staff member... More

We were able to check in early which was hugely appreciated although the staff had already informed us that we could leave our bags with them if the room had not been ready. The hotel is literally next door to Borough tube station which makes it so easy to get around with your Oyster card. You can't hear the tube... More

We chose this hotel based on proximity to our daughter's school, but it also turned out to be a great location for sightseeing around London. It is close by two underground stations, plus it is within walking distance to many attractions. The immediate area is pretty deserted at night walking home from Elephant & Castle, but there are a couple... More

We found the hotel rooms immaculate with lovely crisp sheets and fluffy towels. We are a couple of fairly fit senior citizens and 'do' London quite a lot. This small hotel is ideally situated for getting into the city and the buses from just outside are plentiful if you want to get to the West end. Breakfast in the Cafe... More

I stay at this hotel regularly and have had nothing but great service from all the staff that work there. The rooms are very clean and have everything you need to make the stay comfortable. I particularly like the rooms at the back of the café as they are modern and new, the showers are fantastic and with the lovely... More

The hotel is always immaculate well presented with attentive and very friendly staff. I have stayed many times preferring the intimacy and location to other more branded and larger hotels. Unlike a previous comment I too have had cause to change dates and itinerary and found the staff most accommodating and understanding without the need to heighten emotions. So please... More

The hotel is still lovely. The staff, whilst usually not initially from the UK, could not be more friendly, helpful and well spoken. They always help me get up the stairs (my only fault with the hotel) and shoot down to swiftly carry my bags, which I usually suspect weigh more than them, with a smile They have been amenable...
