I still consider this hotel as centrally located because it's only a short walk to the Thames, London Bridge, Borough Market or Golden Hinde (5 to 10 minutes). This is not the most vibrant and lively area, but you're close to Bankside and the Queen's Walk which is exactly what I was looking for. There are bars and restaurants around... More

Location wise it literally next to the tube station, Borough so no complaints there. It is basically a large house as opposed to a hotel. So access is via a buzz through door into a narrow hall and narrow stairwell, no lift as far as I am aware. Reception was very friendly and helpful, access to my room was via... More

We had a twin room, with en suite bathroom. Both are spacious with enough space to put luggage and hang out clothes. Beds very comfortable. Large... More

Hotel's location is handily right above Borough station and a five minute walk from London Bridge. I booked the hotel for a last minute trip to London when unfortunately most hotels were full, which drove the prices up, and this was one of the few places left with any availability. I'm glad I found it - staff were friendly and... More

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.

Visiting London for my birthday weekend, great friendly service on arrival and we were lucky enough to upgrade from a room to an apartment with a small garden area which is less than a minutes walk away.
