We loved staying in this area on the south bank of the Thames. This Premier Inn is small and the building is old, but as usual the same decor and helpful staff. We needed a handrail for the tub/shower and were offered a disabled room but it had a low hanging rod for clothes, a low bed and we did not want that. They then offered us a room that was in the part of the hotel right by the inside entrance to the Anchor Pub for breakfast nearby and was on the street. It was slightly different ad at least had a towel rail at the end of the tub, good as a balance point, and rails in the sides of the tub which made it possible to get in and out of the elevated tub easily for us. Many people might not like this room because of some street noise, but we loved it. The air conditioning in Premier Inns is a cold blast from the ceiling, but we found out the staff can alter the setting temperature. In this room we could open the window a couple of inches and the weather was perfect for that, much better than air conditioning.
Again (as at our previous stay at the Premier Inn Kings Cross) we had a problem with only a thick duvet with cover, no top sheet or light blanket, but we asked the staff and got a sheet and extra bath towel which was huge and big enough for me. My husband is cold blooded so he liked the duvet. We both have back problems and we needed 5 pillows each to get a comfortable position. Again the staff was cheerfully helpful, though I think the housekeepers thought we were weird!
This hotel is near the Borough Market, a wonderland of fresh fruit, veggies, bakery goods, cheeses, etc on Friday and Saturday just fantastic for a lunch. It is also near the Millennium pedestrian bridge across the Thames which connects the Tate Modern with St Paul's Cathedral and has great views from the bridge. Also it is near the Globe Theater, highly recommended for an authentic Shakespeare experience. And there are lots of restaurants.
