“Nice for business trip”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

Nice hotel in London specificslly for business trip. Very close to city airport 25 min taxi ride. Walking distance to the Tower.

The room was ok - a little dark ( lack of lighting -hard to read in the room. But the room was nicely furnished but dark.

My wife and I stayed just one night here recently as we were in town for a concert at the O2. Very nice friendly hotel with clean modern rooms and layout. On arrival we were accidentally given a twin rather than a double room but the staff were quick to correct this politely with no fuss.

On our return after the gig a little after 10pm we were too late to order any food in the restaurant but were able to use the room service menu, which was very good indeed. Breakfast was a lovely relaxed Sunday morning affair and the overall quality seemed very good. The only down side to this hotel is the proximity of the tube, the nearest being a ten minute walk which is a shame, especially as we were not blessed with good weather during our stay, which meant we used taxis more than we would have done had public transport links been closer.

On balance I would use this hotel again.

Great little hotel. Loved the rooms and the bed was so comfortable.
Lovely breakfast, although service was very slow.
Location was ok, tube a bit far away but good restaurants neaby.
Good value most certainly be back again if I'm feeling fit enough for the walk to the office.

We stayed there last weekend for one night. We checked in around 3pm, went straight to our room which was stylish, spacious and very clean. The room overlooked the market square which was very quiet, and even when the market was setting up on Saturday morning there was no noise. I am a coeliac (gluten free) and although we had requested a gluten free breakfast at the time of booking, from past experience elsewhere our expectations were low. However, once the waiter had realised it was me who was gluten free, both he and the chef went that extra mile. In particular the chef completely understood all of the issues around gluten free eating, which not only filled me with confidence but made me feel relaxed. We were spending the day in London and wanted to leave our case behind; this was done very simply and free of charge. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and we would recommend this hotel as a real little gem. Would definitely stay there again when in town.

This Hotel is a real gem, very friendly and helpful staff with modem rooms with innovative layout that make excellent use of space. We stayed on a Saturday night in a superior double that was the same price as the Premier Inn at Tower Bridge a short walk away. We booked through londontown.com.
The hotel is about 15 minutes’ walk from London Bridge Station, the walk down Bermondsey Road offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the area with lots of converted business premises such as Tanning yards and warehouses which have been converted into homes and independent shops, everything is on a much smaller low rise scale from the area around the station brick, wood and cast iron are all much in evidence.

The quality of the fittings in the hotel is remarkable at this price point, Apple iMacs are everywhere and show a rolling sequence of black and white images of the area. Bathrooms are large and well-appointed with large showers giving lots of elbow room which could easily accommodate more than one person …..
Even the common areas, corridors and lifts are clean lift doors open without the lift seeming to have moved at all which is a little spooky.

We didn’t eat at the hotel. There are lots of interesting independent places to eat nearby and a small branch of Sainsbury’s across the square.

Beds were very comfortable and the quality of the linen was excellent.

We were on the fourth floor and arrived after dark and looked out to see the Shard which we had come to climb illuminated before us – very exciting! (see picture) Very easy level walk to the Shard. Take binoculars if you plan to visit. Picture of the hotel in the centre of the picture taken from the upper viewing platform of the Shard – look for the orange corner of the building.

I cannot make up my mind about this hotel. Fabulous trendy bedrooms furnished with care & style although the top of the desk was looking a little worn and tatty & the towel rail could not be turned on.

Great location in the heart of Bermondsey's creative community; with great local pubs, restaurants, galleries, independent boutiques, flower shops, wine shops, delis...not to mention the great links to London's top tourist & business areas. With the City minutes away & the TATE Modern, Borough Market & Tower of London just a short walk, it would be a good base whether you were here for business or leisure.

The staff were really helpful and lovely. The fancy Apple TV monitor froze & one of the receptionists came up and fixed it for me, the second time it happened I unplugged & restarted it myself. The restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly.

The Bar & Restaurant offered a great British menu using the freshest seasonal & locally sourced ingredients, sustainably sourced fish, free-range chicken all with fresh hand-cut chips. They also offer a full room service menu until 10pm. Breakfast was yummy - lovely sausages.

So why am I humming and hahing? Well I was in Room 206 & all night the AC/heating system was whirring away constantly. Even my trusty ear plugs couldn't cope. The noise ruined the stay as the next day I was exhausted & miserable.

So overall, a disappointing nights sleep stops me from giving this hotel 5 out of 5 - I'm afraid this leaves it only with a four which is a shame because it's otherwise fabulous. Would I come back? Probably not.
