Stayed here for one night at the end of September. My boyfriend and I are a bit sad and have stayed at the Glasgow and Amsterdam Citizen Ms in the past, so we knew what to expect: Greatness as usual...! Only niggle was that we had a low room at the front of the building, right above the entrance (room 107) which meant that we could hear some rowdy smokers at 1.30am. Simply ask for rooms that are 'Southwark view', not 'City view', to avoid this. Other than this, bed/shower/downstairs bar/TV and movies set-up all brilliant. If you haven't stayed at a Citizen M hotel before, try it - they are awesome!

Room Tip: Choose a room that is 'Southwark view', not 'City view' to avoid 'main entrance...

Wonderful hotel, stylish & modern. Lush comfy bed & pillows. Cool lighting & good shower. Lobby is great area with loads of comfy seating areas. Staff lovely and really friendly. Spotlessly clean. Good location, 10 minute walk from London Bridge train & tube station, Plenty bars and restaurants around london bridge. Borough Market well worth a look. M&S Simply Food right accross the road from hotel. Franks cafe, left up Southwark Street, excellent cheap breakfast. Good quality hair dryer and plenty storage. Only small gripe, a kettle in room would have been nice but overall great hotel and would go again.

Atmosphere is fantastic and terribly stylish. Room are not too big but ultra modern and warm, in each of them there’s a tablet that gives total control of anything: temperature, entrattainement, lights, curtains etc. The lobby is more like a wide living room with different corners where you can have breakfast, night cup or just read one of the books available in the libraries. Personnel are kind and always smiling. The reception is fully automated and the breakfast is superlative. Location is perfect either you’re planning to visit London or travelling for business to the City.

Wonderful hotel, cosy and inventive, warm and quiet. The breakfast is great, pasteries are terrible!
We loved the concept, the bed was awesome.
Little things : the washbowl on the vestibule of the room, and the air conditioning a bit to strong.

Wonderful service, very nice people, fantastic mood.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. The ones on the courtyard are great!

Stayed twice in September. Loved the hotel concept, the "Living Room" area terrific for creative meetings, or just to work or relax. Room small but well equipped, perfect for one person, would feel crowded for any more. Very handy to have a M&S Food across the road.

8 minute walk from Southwark Tube, and bus stop right outside (to Westminster Bridge etc). Only things that would have got higher marks from me would be a) if it was just a little closer to the Tube, and b) if they had more options for dinner.
