Stayed with my partner this weekend just gone, Friday and Saturday night. I was surprised to find anything at such short notice in such a good location, and under £100 a night - good for central London. We had a room behind the café - you literally have to walk through the back of it! We found this a real... More

We wanted somewhere to stay, close to where our family had rented an apartment. I booked this hotel based on other reviews, it's location and because it was a decent price with quite modern rooms. When we arrived we were given a lovely apartment around the corner from the hotel. It was Cean with modern furnishings and a comfy bed.... More

This hotel was booked on our behalf and we were not too sure about it, being so close to a tube station.We were on the ground floor-accessed through Cafe Riva. The rooms had air con, were tastefully decorated, tea/coffee making, lovely modern bathroom. Could not fault it.

I know deciding on a spur of the moment trip to London is always going to be costly so I was pleased to find this hotel at 1 day's notice, much cheaper than Travelodges (which I'm not a fan of) or Premier Inns (which I am a fan of) in London. The location was perfect, right next door to Borough... More

A quirky stay in a room behind the adjoining cafe - we had to wander through the empty cafe later in the evening. Room pretty decent size by London standards and large double shower in reasonable sized en-suite. 10 mins walk to Borough Market, 15 mins to London Bridge/The Shard etc. Right next door to Borough Tube station for visiting...

Stayed here with my husband on a business trip in July, a lovely hotel in a brilliant location. Our room (13) was a very spacious ensuite overlooking the back of the building however this didn't spoil our stay. We had our breakfast in the cafe Riva below, it was freshly cooked and really nice. We couldn't fault anything and would... More

Good location, (Northern Line is exactly outsite the hotel); but the room was VERY small and stairs very narrow. On the upside, VERY good staff and receptionists - they did their utmost to make our stay there good.
