Brilliant location as you are just opposite Blackfriars Station and by the river. Parking is nearby and is NCP but as it is in the City, its cheaper than other locations in London. The room was well equipped, the bed large and all well appointed. We didn't eat there as we had already booked for the Blackfriars pub over the...

Located right across Blackfriars tube station. Walking distance from Tate Modern Museum, Millennium bridge and St Paul's Cathedral. Hotel is nicely decorated, very comfortable bed and very nice modern bathroom. Fitness facility has all the equipment necessary for a good workout. There aren't that many choices to eat late at night, but there is convenience store on the opposite corner...

I picked this hotel because of its location in central London and handy for East London where I needed to be. It was my first time there. It's directly opposite a busy rail and tube station (Blackfriars) so connecting with public transport is dead easy. There's a Tesco metro, Costa and Starbucks adjacent or opposite. The building is a solid...

Have stayed in quite a few CPs, and this one thoroughly lived up to the standards I've come to expect.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
