We stayed here with 2 young children in May 2012 in a “family room” and were very impressed. The staff were great and very friendly and the room is perfect with young kids. Would definitely return.
The family room consisted or 2 inter-connecting rooms. The door opened into a room with double sofa-bed, wall mounted flat screen TV, table, 2 easy chairs, 2 wardrobes, a wall unit fitted with sink; microwave; kettle and fridge; and a supply of tea/coffee/plates/bowls/knifes, etc. Connected to this room is the main bedroom with double bed, 2 easy chairs, wall mounted flat screen TV, wardrobe, Nespresso machine and safe. The walk-in shower and toilet are accessed through this room.
For a tourist the location is ok, not great. But there is an excellent bus service just outside the door and also around the corner on Southward Road. London Bridge tube (and train) station is about 7 minutes walk away, so easy to connect all around London and Gatwick in particular via train. Tip: Bus route RV1 goes from corner of hotel to London Eye (Big Ben, etc.). Also the Tate Modern is a very short walk.
A continental breakfast was included in price for all. It was very good, with a large selection of cereals, fruits, cold meats, yogurts and bread. Was very impressed with quality and restaurant staff.
Happy to report WiFi is free and there is a PC in the lobby as well. Also there was water (coffee??) and pasties available in the lobby during the day.
As a nice touch, the receptionist gave our kids a small welcome bag with crayons, colouring book and a small toy. Really nice touch and made us feel welcome.
The only negatives are minor: tourist location not fantastic; heat in room was excessive and aircon is old and slow; street noise is very loud when windows are open (but its London so what do you expect!). Cost was good to expensive… cheapest night was 120, but dearest was 165 which is very high.
