A no-frills centrally located budget hotel, Travelodge London Bank (TLB) will save you $$$. It has a strict check-in time of 3 PM unless you could fork over 10 pounds, but don't do it because you can go to a nearby coffee shop or eateries with WiFi to drink, snack and chill. Reception staff is super friendly and helpful. Most cleaning staff does not speak fluent English but is very kind and thoughtful. Room is small and has minimal counter space, but remember this is a budget hotel that thrives on saving you $$$. The bed is super comfy! We stayed here 5 nights in 2 different rooms and both showers had small leaks in the right front corner next to the sink but just wipe up the leaks and you'll be fine. TLB is near to three Underground or Tube Stations: Cannon Street (right across the street but closed down in the evening and part of the weekend), Monument is a few blocks east, and Bank is a few blocks north of TLB. We stayed here two times (January and April 2014) and love the location because we can walk to everywhere: eastward to London Bridge and Tower Hill and westward to St. Paul, One New Change, Millenium Bridge, Tate, and further to Blackfriars and Temple Court. Near to TLB, you can find food & snacks at the Sainsbury Local, M&S Simply Food (outside of Cannon Street Station), EAT, McDonald, a dim sum/sushi eat-in or takeaway, several coffee shops, pubs, and restaurants. You can eat and drink on a budget or splurge. Bus 15 runs frequently can take you eastward to Tower Hill or westward to Charing Cross and Trafalgar Square, but the bus can be crowded. There is no air conditioning so it will be hot from mid-June to early September. No hot breakfast and on lounge to dine and/or wait. You can purchase cold breakfast snack box from Reception if you are desperate. Be adventurous and get out there to Cannon Street and find your hot meals! Walk the City and enjoy the old and new architecture and don't let any of the suits push you around! Cheers!
