Reviewed 14 May 2012

We reserved 3 rooms: 2 doubles and 1 twin room.
The location is good. Walking distance from the Globe and Tate Modern. And the nearest metro is London Bridge.
All our rooms were allready cleaned and ready when we arrived around 10 o'clock, so the check-in was without any problems.
We had a room at the front side, but the room was quiet. We didn't here any noise from the street.
The room was simple and clean and our shower was really good (good pressure). Only the bedside table could be a little bit bigger.
Also breakfast was really good. During peak periode (between 08h30 - 09h30) the restaurant was allways full, but we allways had a seat after 5minutes. The personel was really friendly and they did there best to keep the buffet clean. After our stay we could leave our bags at the hotel.
At this moment I would certainly advise this hotel. But hopefully they will keep there standards in the coming years.

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.

It's easy to understand why this hotel is 196th position out of the thousands of hotels in London on trip advisor. It is a real hidden gem. Stay here if you need a hotel in the area.
Situated next door to the Novotel on South Bank, I have walked past it many time because it is very unimposing, and dare I say almost unnoticeable. All that changes from the minute you walk into reception.
Check in was fast and pleasant, and you were given your free wireless access code without having to ask for it.
The room was not too large but the space well utilised for business travellers. A business desk with chargeable wired internet connection reasonable lighting, BUT a negative comment on the room was there was no stand or surface to unpack your luggage. I did not want to put my bag onto the bed and the business desk would not support the weight, so I had to use the floor.
Also, the business desk had a single socket, not good for charging your computer, phone and iPad. No other sockets were accessible in the room.
Large screen plasma TV in room. Great shower and some clever lighting in the cubicle.
Large wardrobe, room safe, iron & board - no fridge.
NOTE: wireless internet access was strong in the bar, restaurant and room. So why you would pay for wired access puzzles me.
The bar was minimalistic and the wine selection was reasonable. I opted for a mid price range Australian wine and it was excellent - a pleasant surprise to get this quality of wine in a hotel chain.
The restaurant had a great range of appetisers, starters and main dishes to chose from and again, I was surprised at the selection for a budget hotel. A selection of steaks, fish, salads, pasta and veggie dishes. I had Aberdeen Angus burger and it was one of the best beef burgers I have eaten in years. Well done chef.
The barmaid also doubled as a server and she was very attentive, pleasant, funny and professional - a real asset to the hotel.
Breakfast was vey very good - buffet style with a large choice of breads & pastries. Nice self-serve coffee pots always topped up. A light an airy feel to the restaurant because of the large windows.
Check out easy and painless.
I would not hesitate in recommending the hotel to others. The location is great and minutes from London or Blackfriars bridges and a large selection of pubs and restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: choose 1st floor location to save waiting for lift at busy times

All Seasons offered great value for the offer and was just a short walk from London Bridge hotel. Rooms were clean and effective for use. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Would recommend to anyone looking to do London for just location and price rather looking for a glitzy hotel. Staff were flexible in approach which made it even more comfortable.

I have stayed in many London hotels. This is one of the best, a lot nicer than a classic London tourist hotel and still very affordable!
The area is very nice, close to Borough Market a Mecka for foodies. Nice pubs too.
