“Welcome citizens.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Fabulous location perfect for a south bank run in the morning. A large welcoming lounge, lots of comfortable Vitra seats, books and televisions, a great bar with a good selection of food and drinks (cocktails or coffee, any time) all provided by an enthusiastic staff. The rooms are a little on the small side but the cunning layout and amenities make up for this. Nice touches, the lighting, wi-fi, films and cleanliness, even the iron in a small laundry room was top of the range and functioned perfectly. I would definitely stay there again and have heartily recommended to friends.

Room Tip: Gor for a room facing the court yard if you prefer a quiet night over the view.

Wonderful Location in Bankside moments from the Tate Modern and the borough market ! A wonderful buzzing bar and food scene within the lobby. Completely on its own in terms of food service, ambience, character and free wireless internet throughout the hotel. Excelling in all ! Intriguing design and visually appetizing on all fronts.

You know this is a urban travelers hotel with cramped bedrooms but massive beds. Not for those who enjoy a large room and hours spent inside. Tablets quite simple but get confusing at times. Sometimes after enjoying the bar, flipping a switch is all one wants, rather than a full on multi media experience and light show.

Great location to explore the Bankside Quarter. Do not expect a conventional hotel, the rooms are cabin like with a huge beds and a great shower within a capsule in the room. Staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast is good too.

Room Tip: Take a higher floor either overlooking the interior or Southwark Street.

What an experience. Cool tablet with games and managing all your lights temperature blind. Never seen this before. And for this price in the middle of London. Stayed with 3 kids and we loved the lively lobby. We just need many more citizenm hotels around the world. My prefered place to stay

The rooms are a little bit small but they are well laid out and the bed is really comfortable. The lights, blinds, entertainment are also controlled by an iPad which works really well. There is free WiFi as well as Movies in your room. Not far a walk to the underground either so it's in a good position to get places. We thought breakfast was a little bit pricey so we found a nice place down the road called Franks Cafe. All in all very comfortable place to stay
