Fine standard hotel, modern furniture which included a moderately comfortable couch and an office chair at a desk...but the bathroom wall facing the living area was the type of glass that can be cloudy or clear at the push of a button. So if you want your companion to watch you shower or use the toilet, this is the place for you. If you would like to keep on a light in the bathroom so you can find it at night -- forget it -- the glass wall illuminates the whole room when the light is on. Coming after a stay at the Istanbul Hilton where the toilet is in a clear glass enclosure it does make me wonder about these designers.

We were a family of two adults and three teenage kids. The Check-in Office was close to Borough Station once I figured out which direction to walk (by the way it was to the left on Borough High St). Check-in is 3pm and they will store your luggage if necessary. (We did). This company utilizes more than one apt. building, so your apt could be a 5 to 10 min walk from the office. Our apt was exactly as pictured. We were pleasantly suprised! Our unit was clean, spacious, safe and secure. There was a Tesco market right below our apt. It was very convenient. Our two bedroom/2 bath apt had two queen size beds and a double, trundle bed. There was plenty of room for the five of us. The washer/dryer combo was small and only takes small loads. The apt did not have air conditioning, so to cool off the apt we opened the windows. (The temperature never got over 70* while we were there. So if it's hot while you are there good luck). We would recommend this place.
The receptionist was wonderful on check-in, my little girl had seen the web page, showing a pic of the London eye from the bedroom window. And they changed our room, so she could have a room with that view. The room was lovely clean, and cosy, with plenty of space. The view was to die for, and not only did we have the London Eye, but Big Ben too, Amazed my little girl. We ate lunch and supper in the Hotel bar, which was a reasonable price for London. Lunch was reasonable, but supper was very dissapointting. We ordered 3 starters, one of which arrived as the others, were just about finished. Also, we ordered 3 main courses, one of which never arrived at all. which was a shame, as we had had a long hot day.
But the room was to die for. although we did swipe our card to enable the mini bar to be opened, but even though we asked twice, it was still not unlocked for us. All in all though we had a fab time, and the niggly little problems were not important.
"Nice Hotel close to The Shard and Borough Market"
Pleasing, clean and contemporary hotel just a short walk from London Bridge station. Very friendly welcome and a free upgrade - always nice! Good size bedroom, very comfortable bed, excellent bathroom, quick & reliable WiFi. I didn't sample the in-house food but the attached restaurant looked excellent and was always busy - good sign for a restaurant! Happy to recommend for business, couples or family stay.
The Hotel is in a great location. Wonderful view of Big Ben and Parliament and the London Eye.
The most important part of staying here was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They
made you feel at home and were very professional. I would highly recommend this place.
Excellent and friendly staff. Comfy rooms. Workout facility's and spa gave me everything I needed. Only issue was the women's spa Shower was difficult to operate resulting in some flooding of the bathroom in the spa area.
Would absolutely recommend to everyone!
The South Bank on the River Thames is one of the capital's foremost cultural hubs. Stroll along the Queen's Walk and take in views of London's most famous landmarks, like the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. The Southbank Centre, one of the largest arts centers in the world, hosts concert and theater events at eminent venues including the National Theatre and the Royal Festival Hall.
