Location was good, near Southwark station. Best words to describe the lobby and overall ambiance of hotel would probably be smart, quirky and relaxed. It was super easy to check-in. Never thought it could be so fast. We got the room we asked for (upper floor, facing the street).
Room was nice and convenient, like a pod. Room's functions (tv, internet, curtains, lights and moods) were operated with Samsung tablet. It worked out all right. There was also a selection of movies available! Altering the light and moods in the room was fun, it brought a nice surplus. Thought sometimes it was difficult to find just the normal lighting It was good to have fridge. Bed was great, but sharing one blanket just doesn't work for me (or for us). Do people really use one shared blanket :)? Toilet and shower seemed very clean.
Few things that could be done better. Floor heating or a rug or something. A short manual for tablet. Now we had to call to the "reception" for instructions when Internet connection "timed out". Perhaps one thing that staff could do besides cleaning is to put guest's tablet into the charger. It didn't come to my mind and therefore as we arrived from day out, we found empty tablet. But these were very small things and didn't mess up the big picture.
All and very good experience. Hotel suited nicely to weekend visit.
