Only stayed the one night, but from the offset was made very welcome. Staff are friendly, polite and very helpful. Room was large, very clean and warm. Bathroom was excellent. Breakfast was plentiful with good choices and most importantly - hot. Great location, easy reach of Vauxhall station, good restaurant nearby.

It was ok to stay for one night, but need a bit more if it is a longer holidays. Room was very small and cold (had a small plug in heater), lift have not fit many people either. Also the breakfast was very basic.

The room we stayed in was good size. Breakfast included- spread is good. There is no restaurant in the hotel so you cant have other food options and would need to walk down the street to find a place to eat - there are many options. The staff was very courteous and friendly. Availability of a cloakroom helped us to...

As this hotel was undergoing refurbishments while we were there, we found access was a little difficult for our aged bones. The room was as expected for an HI Express, comfortable and functional. As we were in town for a family celebration, it met our needs perfectly. The room was very quiet, given that the hotel is on a main...

This was close to the subway so very convenient. Breakfast was included in the booking. Unfortunately the hotel is undergoing massive renovations so we actually could have walked straight past the bulding not realising it was a hotel. The room was comfortable and the interior welcoming. Staff were professional but perhaps a little awkward on the reception area.

We recently completed a four night stay here and found the hotel to be a good value. It is in a convenient location close to the tube and walkable to some site-seeing attractions such as the Tate Modern, Borough Market and Shakespeare’s Globe. The room was clean, reasonably modern and included a free breakfast that had a variety of choices....

I stayed here on business for 3 nights and was horrified when my taxi pulled up outside as there was that much scaffolding and building work it looked like the hotel was actually closed.

The rooms are old and tired, the air conditioning was broken and to cap it all, there was no hot water in the morning. Reception staff very friendly but refused to get the manager as she was 'very busy'. Avoid like the plague.

Good location and usually cleanliness standard. Hotel under external renovation with scaffolding erected. No car parking now and nearest car park is a good five minute walk and ridiculously expensive. Tried to claim a refund for the car park and was refused. We wont be using this group again-beware. Breakfast was just average.

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
