This hotel is conveniently located near many local attractions. My room was quiet, clean, and modern. Breakfast included baked beans, ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, yogurt, pastries, toast, cereal, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, tea, and milk.

Although the Holiday Inn Express in London Southwark is not trying to be a five star hotel, we were still disappointed. When booking, there was no information that the hotel was renovated. And prices were 'normal London prices' for a simple, but not shabby hotel. Upon arrival we noticed the whole hotel was covered in scaffolding and tarpaulin. Good welcome...

Despite an extensive refurb programme, the hotel was working fine and our stay was enjoyable. Great location, minutes from Tate Modern. We had a ground-floor room in the new bit, right near Reception but heard hardly any street noise; comfy big bed and sofa bed made up ready to use if needed. Bathroom looked brand-new and the shower was excellent,...

Clean, comfortable bed, enough towels, even the decorations are fine. Location is in the middle of hotel district and some of the restaurants and pubs were close enough. And even Tate modern, with a great free view from the top floor. Some issues: too little room on the desk and for the chair for some serious work to be done...

2nd time we stayed here. Great experience both times. Rooms have just been refurbished so look lovely & fresh. Great breakfast. Staff really friendly & helpful. Only slight criticism is that there is no main light in the room - and so especially with one side of the room painted navy blue, it's really dark in the evenings! However there...

Hotel undergoing refurbishment so very tatty on the outside but fair enough. The hotel itself / the rooms very simple, tidy and clean - can't moan about that. We had all inclusive breakfast and it was more than vile, food was cold. Sausages were black, hard and inside the sausages this morning was enough to make someone ill. Not much...

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
