Enjoyed our stay. Room was clean, comfortable and nice, Free wifi, breakfast included and overall a good value. Staff were friendly, but overall service was average which isn't uncommon in London. The location is great, a short walk to Southwark Underground or Waterloo Station or Thames. Lots of good restaurants within about a 15 minute walk. If you need a cab, I suggest using the Dial-A-Cab app, but you can often flag a cab down on Blackfriar. The hotel has an agreement with a car service which is nice, but we paid twice as much for a ride to Kings Cross before I found the app. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Pool was nice, sauna was wonderful and Jacuzzi wasn't very warm.

I stayed here for 10 days , it is less than 5 minutes walk to Southwalk station, very convenience. You can travel by bus, bus station is in front of the hotel. The eye is near Waterloo road which is near this hotel as well.

The staffs work in the hotel restaurant are friendly. However, if you prefer to look for alternative, you can easily find restaurants from foot steps. Tesco also walking distance, if you need to buy drinks, foods etc. The breakkfast has a lot of choice, taste good.

The room is comfortable. You should experience the bath room light, special !

Overall it is nice hotel except they have charged me additional cost without inform me prior to my check in. Hope this can be improved.

I spent a couple of nights at this hotel this week and was on 11th floor which is where they have the executive rooms. I had a corner room with large windows with a great view over the neighborhood. Checking in was fast and courteous. I tried the room service once and the food came in quickly and was good. The room was of decent size with a large flat screen TV. I appreciated the side table next to the bed. Great way of getting some work done while watching the football game.
The hotel is very well located with many restaurants just around the corner and walking distance from Waterloo station.
Overall, very positive experience.

A nice clean hotel in a fairly convenient location on the Jubilee Line at Southwark.
I was upgraded to Executive room on the 2nd floor fronting Blackfriars Road, minimal if any disturbance from traffic.
A great bathroom, friendly helpful staff.

The hotel, which is perfectly located within easy access of the Jubilee, Circle, District and Northern Lines, is modern and tastefully decorated in a manner typical of a large modern hotel chain. The room was, by London standards, a good size and was clean and tidy without the ‘well worn’ and tired feel you get in so many hotels. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the mattress of a standard rarely found in hotels - so often hotels let themselves down with poor quality and/or worn mattresses. The choice for breakfast is standard for a large hotel, but the service at the weekend was rather chaotic as the staff, who did their best, struggled to cope with the demand.
