                7.8

                The room was very clean and there was a good supply of Tea, Coffee, milk and sugar in the room.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                A warm welcome on arrival and departure. Breakfast was sufficient good location

                radiators were noisy throughout the night.

              • Couple
                5.4

                Value for money: "fair" for London. Noises during whole night and early in the morning.

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                the staff were extremely polite, helpful and professional; there was a good choice of restaurants within a very short walking distance

                breakfast was basic, but adequate all the same.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Good location for South Bank and the City. A good breakfast included in the price.

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                Location and staff freindly. Clean.

                Bed too soft aggravated bad back; smelly sink; poor sound proofing in very busy area. Breakfast appalling - poor choice, cheap brands, overcrowded only one toaster, TV blaring throughout. Snacks overpriced. Wi Fi priced at £5 an hour - should be free.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                Clean, friendly, good location, great rooms

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                The location was fine for what we wanted to do and see - Tate modern for example.

                The bed was too small and uncomfortable and the room itself was on the small size.It would be interesting to see how it compared with a Premier Inn as regards what you get for what you pay for. A comfortable bed would have made a great deal of difference.

              • Older travelers
                5.0

                Location

                Reception smelled of takeaway pizza, our card opened the wrong room on another guest, couldn't cool the room down with the air con, everything ran out at breakfast - milk, bread, tea, juice.

              • Single
                8.8

                Pleasant and efficient staff.

                The hotel was too warm in the communal areas.

              • Single
                6.2

                The Hotel was clean, confortable and close to the centre of London. 10min from Southwark tube station.

                I personally found the map misleading. Looks like it is in Blackfriers Street, when its actually hidden on a street parallel to it.

              • Family with children
                4.2

                Unfortunately, nothing. I have stayed in many hotels on London and this has been by far the worst one because of its service staff.

                Service staff were dour, sullen and unhelpful. When we asked for directions to the nearest tube station, they just handed over a map. We had to request for assistance to mark out where the hotel was on the map and walking directions to the station - this he did rather unwillingly and made us feel that we were bothersome.

              • Family with children
                7.0

                It is well located for Tate Modern and St Paul's. It is clean and efficient.

                Express by Holiday Inn have recently introduced hot breakfasts as part of their breakfast included in the price of your room. Frankly it really is not worth their having done this as it consists of microwaved sausages and overcooked scrambled egg.

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                Pleasantly surprised ThanksI didnt realise breakfast was included - and not just cold foods. Hair dryer and tea making facilities much appreciated too

                No problems

              • Single

                good location, basic but had all the necessaries; nice choice of pillows
