    8.2

    A very high standard of comfort and service at a reasonable price. Good location and quiet rooms (at least away from the road). Would certainly go back

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Had to search for Towel #2,Fridge did not work hence milk went off. Not sufficient drink making facilities. need bin near drink making stuff

  • Couple
    9.2

    Its position: really close to the Globe Theatre and Tate Modern Museum. Quiet, b but not far from some of the city main attractions. Comfortable and quite good size room. Really good quality price. Helpful staff.

    The bathroom separated from the shower room, where the sink is. The shower door is not enough to prevent a little puddle after a shower, but it was not a major issue. If you are planning a long stay not enough space in the wardrobe, but for a long weekend it is more than enough.(at least in the same kind of room)

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    good location. the room was clean and good size.bathroom facilities were good.Aside for minor problems mentioned below the hotel was good and I would recommend.

    Only one pillow per person. Breakfast time seemed to overwhelm the staff. With waiting for plates and tables cleared away while the occupants were waiting for toast.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere

    First time in any London hotel we had to queue for breakfast

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Friendly and helpful staff, great food, location to underground and London Bridge

    Lack of stairs to the upper floors as my grandaughter is scared of lifts

  • Couple
    8.8

    Very modern, spacious, executive rooms. Nespresso on the room. Internet and bottled water included in the executive room rate. Location (5-10 min walk to underground, very close to the river, Shakespeare Globe and Tate Modern).

    Internet rates would have been too high if not included (15 pounds for 1 day),

  • Single
    5.4

    Location

    The room was dated and rough round the edges. The clroom was poorly cleaned each day

  • Couple
    7.0

    Nice clean hotel but a little bit too far out, tube station a good 15min walk from the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Very clean, comfprtable fresh room and facilities, would stay again

    Price of breakfast

  • Family with children
    5.4

    5 min walk to London Bridge tube and 3 min to the Globe Theater. It was clean and the breakfast was good to. Night time 10 min trip to and from Covent Garden and only 15 pounds at night. Over all not a bad hotel.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    We got a free upgrade to a suite which was nice but I wouldn't have wanted tp pay the full price for it.

    Public areas and bar drab and soulless. Completely lacking in atmosphere.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Comfortable room. Good choice for breakfast. Short walk to Tube station. Separate WC.

    No fan in WC (or it wasn't working).

  • Couple
    9.2

    The rooms were extremely quiet enabling a peaceful stay at the hotel

  • Single
    5.8

    It was close to the hospitals where I needed to attend for work.Staff polite and helpful.

    Drains in bathroom sluggish and smelly. It was not an area at night as a single woman that I would choose to use again.
