“Very small rooms but they say it up front”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Loved free wifi, free films, Funky public space, alarm wake up lights and sounds, tablet to make it all work. Couples would be claustrophobic I think but I loved the way it was all a little bit different.

stayed only one night for a quick stop over from london. was easy to get to on the tube from heathrow and hotel in a great location so close to soutwark station and for a walk along the south bank (london eye, big ben etc)

The rooms are great so clean and compact. The bed is amazing so comfy i didn't want to go out with all the free movies and wifi. The samsung table you use to control the whole room is a funny novelty. The rain shower also a touch of luxury.

I booked this when it opened so got a good discount but prices are still reasonable for londo, will defiantly be staying here again or other citizen m's..

I absolutely adore this hotel. It's close to the Southwark Undergroud station, and pretty easy to get to from Heathrow Airport. Check in was a breeze, you have a self-service counter with someone waiting to assist you if you have any problems.

The rooms are amazing, everything is controlled by a Samsung tablet. You can set mood lighting in the room, control the temperature, television. Not to mention the free-wifi is amazing!

The beds were very comfortable, and they even included an adorable little rag doll.

The entire place is spotless, breakfast was great (I would pre-order to save a few pounds), and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

The hotel is down a small street though, if you're walking from the underground, but there are a lot of little stores where you can buy little meals to go. A few restuarants nearby as well.

I will stay here again and again.

Look no further - for Concept, Comfort, Cleanliness , Creativity and Cost - it does not get any better than this ! There is an ease and such a relaxed ambience that you feel instantly at home - well , in your dream home ! Every detail has been thought through so carefully that you feel instantly cared for - Ambassadors who look genuinely happy to be at work , Colours and Quirks that tease the mind , a room so well designed that you feel as if you are in a Cocoon ! I recommend booking the breakfast and spending a lazy am reading newspapers and taking in the ambience . Whether for business of Pleasure this Hotel will not fail to impress . If just for you - a wonderful indulgence!
A place to just be .... ( do not get me started on the Coffee , Champagne and Cocktails!)...........

Wouldn't stay anywhere else in London, even on a higher budget. Free wifi everywhere, cell signal perfect throughout, tablet in every room which controls the blinds, lights, tv (with unlimited free movies as well), etc. Great showers. The food was excellent for breakfast and the bar was lively (but not too loud) and well staffed even at 2am.
