We needed a hotel for a few nights in London before moving onto a cruise. Our first choice hotel was full, so we picked Southwark as a second choice. Once we were in London, we felt this location was ideal! Only a few blocks walk from the tube station, and very central to many of the attractions. It is in the middle of many restaurants, shops, and the Borough Market is just up the street! There was a very convenient grocery around the corner. The room was sufficient, though the bed very hard and they do not provide wash cloths or conditioner in the rooms. (We were told we had an "updated room". The bathroom was large and the furnishings modern) The breakfast in the morning is adequate (eggs, sausages, beans, cereal, fruit, yogurt, granola), and WOW, maybe the best croissant I have ever had- like eating buttery air! The hotel seemed like it was full- very busy in the mornings, but we never heard another noise while in our room. Have to again give two thumbs up for location.
