For a 1 night stay in central London this reasonably-priced hotel fitted the bill. Very conveniently situated right next to Borough tube station there is an adjoining café serving breakfasts and lunches. I spotted a couple of middle-eastern restaurants very nearby and a small supermarket directly opposite. With bus-stops very close and taxis passing by the location was hard to... More

The location was perfect for accessibility to the city given that it's literally right next to the Borough station but I also just walked over the bridges a couple of days as well. I ended up staying in an apartment that the hotel uses given that I had a weeklong stay and it was absolutely perfect. It was large by... More

Staff really friendly, non-intrusive and both receptionists when I arrived and departed couldn't be more helpful! There was no phone in the room to call downstairs, but I actually didn't... More

Hotel is in a great location right next to the Buroughs and walk to London Eye. The people are amazing, I had a bit of a shock when I found out I was in a 4th flr room with no elevator and a case that weighed WAY too much to get upstairs. We worked it out in the end, as... More

Just returned from a visit to London, the primary purpose of which was to visit the Georgia O Keefe exhibition in the Tate Modern so I searched for a nearby hotel which wouldn't be too expensive but convenient to the TM and transport.
