An excellent hotel located very close to Waterloo Mainline Station (10min walk), the Globe Theatre & Tate Modern (10min walk), West End theatres (via taxi) and access to the City via Blackfriars bridge (15min walk).
Staff were really polite on arrival and we were presented with a room key straight away. Room was very clean and well presented. The twin beds could easily be pushed a foot apart if required. The breakfast for £8.95 was quite varied and plentiful and if you chose, you could have fruit, cereals, cooked breakfast & toast with coffee & fruit juice.
The only two minor gripes were:
1). The bed as it seemed to have two mattresses, so when you moved around in bed, the two mattresses moved which meant the bed itself also moved which we then had to keep putting the beds back into the correct position.
2). The light on the outside of the bathroom, my roommate didn't realise I was in the bathroom and so turned the light off leaving the shower in darkness. A pull switch inside the bathroom area might be of benefit.
All in all an excellent hotel and one I'll definitely use again should the need arise.
