“Would be 5 stars if the bed were comfortable.”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Had a great stay here. The bar, canteen and relaxing areas were lovely. FREE Wifi !!! FREE movies !!

The room was exactly as I expected having stayed somewhere similar - very, very, very small. More like being in a cabin of a ship than a hotel. Just like a cabin, theres a place for everything and. Really, it's a great idea to offer in-room gadgetry, free Wifi and movies instead of spacious rooms. This is what the modern city-traveller wants. There's a hairdryer in room, and an ironing room on each floor.Location is excellent -very quick from London City Airport and London Bridge.

The only down-side for my Husband and myself, was that we found the bed very uncomfortable. The pillows were large and very hard. Although the bed is large, it's very firm. Some people prefer that, I know, but it really was very hard. If the bed had not been an issue, this hotel would easily have score 10 out of 10 from me.

I would definitely stay again, bringing a pillow and mattress topper with me next time.

Room Tip: Ask about pillows and mattress, and if in doubt, bring your own. Ask for an outer room overlooking t...

I'm completely in love with this hotel!
The location is brilliant - behind the Tate Modern and really close to the bars and restaurants of London Bridge and Borough Market. The staff are great - really helpful and friendly. And the building, bar and rooms are very cool indeed.
It's great value and you should definitely add on the delicious breakfast - perfect for easing a hangover!
The only teeny tiny downside is that the rooms are quite small, but who on earth visits London to spend time sitting in a hotel room?
We will definitely be going back!!

Once again CitizenM exceeds my expectations. It's modern, very clean and very reasonably priced.

The hotel is just off the beaten track but close enough to central London and the city. If you have not stayed in a CitizenM then you should try it!

Extremely warm and charming welcome. Attentive but relaxed staff.
Funky but nicely low key atmosphere in the public areas, great place to hang out.

Love the technology in the rooms. It works!

A great weekend hotel experience.

We had a great stay in this design hotel. Absolutely great location, just 5 min. walk from London Bridge and Tate Modern. The hotel has a superb relaxing and buzzling lobby with nice bar and vitra chairs. Rooms are small but comfy and hi-tec.

Clean, quite, budget friendly hotel. Great staff. Definetly worth to consider in London. Although the location is kinda hard ti reach from central and may not be suitable for night owls since there's no 24 hour buses to bankside. But definetly one of the best hotels you can find in London if you don't mind Bankside.
