Great little hotel right near Borough tube station. There are a few pubs and restaurants nearby. I personally found it convenient for the tube, and the reception staff were very helpful and accommodating.

Right next to Borough Tube Station so easy to find. Car parking available in the next street, about 2 minutes walk away. We had a good sized room on the ground floor behind the cafe, which serves breakfast and lunches.

Great location right next to a tube stop. Very helpful staff available 24 hours! Rooms are very small, but have the basics. Comfortable beds. It got a little hot at night without air conditioning - didn't want to leave the windows open since there were no screens.
