Borough Market, with its exciting smells, flavours and cuisines from all over the world, is less than 20 minutes' walk from the hotel, while The Shard -- the tallest building in London -- is also less than 20 minutes' walk away.

Great location and central for London attractions

This is a very large hotel which is geared to deal with mass tourism from many overseas tourists. The rooms are clean, modern and are of a reasonable size for central London. The restaurant for breakfast can only be described as manic with long queues and little attention to guest comfort or service. The buffet breakfast was typical of a mass service of mediocre food quality.

We had a lovely south facing room for 3 nights overlooking the Thames and Tower Bridge. The room and service were excellent and even breakfast had a quality feel to it. The main daytime and evening restaurant was more of a bistro style eatery quite popular with the multicultural clientele. There were many other restaurants in the close vicinity. Overall we couldn't find fault with anything and the whole experience left us wishing we could spend a few more days there. Very likely we will go back again especially if we can get a similar deal.

Actually we were actually celebrating our 50th Wedding aniversary and the hotel had somehow got wind of this. We were pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates in our room. A really good welcoming touch.

Good room with a view of Tower bridge and excellent for the places we wanted to go on this visit. The rooms are starting to look a bit tired with a cracked wash hand basin in the bathroom. Could do with updating before it goes much further. But had no real issues and room was quiet and a great view. We enjoyed the visit.
