Very close to Southwark tube stop and the South Bank. Easy walk to the National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall, Old and Young Vics, the Globe, and the Tate Modern.
The room is small by most standards, but decent by London budget standards. The beds are comfortable, and I appreciated both air conditioning and a window that opened. The staff at the desk and the restaurant were lovely.
There is no storage in the bathroom, though--not even a single small shelf in the shower--and in my room the shower leaked all over the floor, which was inconvenient. Housekeeping didn't service my room two of the days; I came back to a bag of clean towels and tea supplies with the do not disturb sign hanging. (I'm sure I did not leave the sign up; it was very odd.) I imagine this could have been rectified easily, but I didn't mind. But some people might be upset by it.
I would definitely stay here again.
