I had a double room which was clean with toiletries in the bathroom Breakfast was ok, but why no bacon on the Buffett??? Help yourself to whatever you wanted. The staff I found rude and had a problem understanding English! No parking for the car... More

This is the third year in a row that my mother and I have stayed in this hotel. Clean and comfortable rooms, friendly staff and great location. It is close to the Tate Modern and walking distance from many other attractions.

I stayed at this hotel as it was considered convenient for a business trip taking in locations in and around The Shard. Was a bit concerned when placed in Room 101 (not just because of the George Orwell book), but because this wax situated on the ground floor looking directly out onto the busy Southwark Street and was right behind...

Simple basic clean comfortable hotel well situated for south bank Tate etc. Good base but you don't want to spend time there. Filling breakfast and helpful staff. Busy during breakfast at some times and no variations in menu. no restaurant.

Room's appeal much better, after a major upgrade they recently underwent - ours (with a king double + roll away sofa) was quite spacy (for European standards), bathroom huge (compared to one during previous stays), generally clean and tidy.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express with my two sons for five nights. The staff was helpful, the room adequate and the location superb. Breakfast was just ok, but enough. I sometimes had the impression some more personnel could be necessary during breakfast time. All in all a place I will probably revisit whenever I go back to London.

Holiday inn expresses sometimes disappoint because of the low cost feel they have, not the Holiday inn express southwark. The hotel is nice, rooms are comfortable in size, beds are good and it's close to public transport and has different restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

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.
