We stayed for a week at the end of June and found we'd been given an upgrade to a self catering apartment. An excellent start! The building is amazing, full of character e.g. if the breakfast room is full you eat in the old council chamber, fantastic.
The staff are really helpful and always polite, friendly and knowledgable. The room was superb; tidy, clean and well equipped with a great bathroom. The only problem was we felt the bed was more three quarter size rather than double.
Breakfast was excellent and, in our deal, part of the price, even if bought separately it comes out less than most hotels. There was fresh fruit salad, whole fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, great breads, croissants, pain au chocolate and pain au raisins, conserves and fresh fruit juices plus as much coffee as you wanted, if you wanted more there was an extra charge for cooked eggs, bacon etc. All in all the best breakfast I've had in a London hotel ever!
The hotel is a five minute walk to the Central line for access to central London so no problem. We walked to Tower Bridge twice (50 minutes), interesting to see more than the inside of tunnels. Nearby Victoria Park (1Km) was great for my running, there were lots of people out there on bikes, running, walking skating etc, it was safe, open and well kept. Beyond that there was an urban village where there were interesting eateries on every corner of the small square.
Overall the area is well worth a visit, especially as gentrification is definitely happening with plenty of local, non chain shops. There is a wide ethnic range, people out and about were friendly and helpful.
