I got a great rate from Last Minute for this hotel and even though it was 'only' a standard double, the room was perfectly fine (and big for a London hotel room), and had wonderful views over St Katherine's Dock.
Easy to get to (4 minutes walk from Tower Hill Tube), and extremely friendly check-in staff (their computer systems were down and even in that environment, they were efficient, friendly and just really welcoming - not a given in London), plus the doorman advised I might need an umbrella (I'd left mine upstairs so he provided me with one), etc etc.
I'd left my phone charger at home so they even offered to charge my phone for me on the concierge's desk.
I've looked at this hotel for a while when needing a hotel room in London and the outside appearance has put me off but inside, the hotel is absolutely fine (albeit slightly dated as others have said), and for the price I paid, it was a good choice.
