The hotel is located on the South Bank of the Thames, across from Westminster, and a several minute walk from the Vauxhall tube station. There are also several bus lines running though stops adjacent to the hotel.
The area is quiet, but a bit far from the action of the city center, and there’s little to do or visit close to the hotel. The room was spacious, and the bathroom featured both a shower and a bath – a rare combination. The room had power outlets matching European and American plugs, a very useful feature for travelers. The reading lamps were poorly designed – these were two spotlights, shining from the top of the headboard, directly into my eyes, instead of lighting the book. This is very silly design, and could be easily rectified by the addition of proper reading lamps, on the nightstands.
The included Wi-Fi was very slow – capped at 256 kbps.
Overall, we had a nice stay, and the less-than-ideal location was offset by the cost savings compared to more central hotels.
