i saw the amazing reviews on TA and was quite excited. I wasn't disappointed. helpful staff. very very interesting and different decor. Felt like a destination in of itself! Bankside was very convenient for us as we like walking and taking the tube. we walked across the millenium bridge every day. the hotel is an easy 5-10 minute walk from Southwark tube station and maybe 10-15minutes from London Bridge station. Across the street was a Marks&Spencer for snacks and such. The hotel claims great beds and showers. and it was exactly that. even though room was small, it wasn't cramped, it was clean and bright. Bed was exceedingly comfortable. free movies were great. the wifi didn't work in the room the first day, but worked in lobby. they fixed it by the second day. we didn't eat the food of the restaurant, but it looked nice and friendly. 2 Macs with printer available to print out maps and such. Friendly staff. I checked in as a solo female traveler and felt safe. Need card key to use elevator. soundproof. i'll be back to this chain whenever i can! the one thing i would warn is that if you are travelling with a friend, you should be very close as you will have no privacy in this room. although lounge space is quite nice to hang out in. For the price, we got much more than a chain hotel and i think more comfort than an old quaint B/B. great blackout shades.
