First of all location. The location of London City Hotel is tough to beat. It's right in the thick of things. Literally next to Borough Station on the Northern Line that is super easy to navigate and can allow you to see everything your heart could desire while visiting London. Next management. From the second I booked the room the...

The receptionists were friendly, and helpful, the room was very clean, the hotel is located close to center and only a few steps the Borough tube station, good value for money, not luxurious but good enough

I chose a room with an en-suite bathroom (whereas a lot of rooms in this hotel seem to share). I had absolutely no complaints about the room, it was clean, quiet, spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, had a hot, powerful shower and nice big towels. No, it's not the height of luxury, but for...

First of all, the hostess was welcoming. Secondly, the room was nice and clean. The bed was comfortable and soft. The bathroom had a big shower and was also clean. Furthermore the hotel was in a touristic area, there were restaurants, buses, the underground, london bridge and borough market.

Stayed here last night for NYE at ministry of sound. So close, easy to get to from KGX. It is basically above borough tube station. Had a double room with shower, was a nice size and very well presented. Even got a little happy New year's card from the staff, which was a nice touch. Left the bags with reception...

My husband and I stayed here two nights this week. The entry way is very small and there are LOTS of steps in a narrow staircase (we were on the top floor, room 18). Not recommended for people who may have difficulty getting up the steps, but for us it wasn't a bother. The staff was very friendly and helpful....

It was my first night staying in London so perhaps I overestimated what £39 would get. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful so check-in was a breeze. Unfortunately the shared bathroom was cramped and the extractor fan seemed to be damaged in some way. The WiFi was adequately fast but completely unsecured so I was anxious to use it...
