London City Hotel was the highlight of my trip to Europe. It's located right next to the Borough Underground station which is super convenient for getting places in the city. The staff were super friendly and attentive and made suggestions on places to visit while staying in London. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were very clean. This...

The hotel entrance is no more than 10 ft from the entrance/exit to the right as you walk out of Borough Underground station. Look up to see the London City Hotel. The narrow entrance is between two shops, up the stairs to reception. Its small, its smart and you are met by very friendly folks in the office. After check...

Right beside Borough Station on Borough High Street so very handy without being too far removed from London. As we were requiring 3 beds we were in an apartment round the corner 2 minutes walk away. Check in was great, despite us being late due to storm Doris, but even at 1am in the morning the staff were very pleasant...

Needed a room quickly for an overnight stay in London. Came across the London City Hotel and thought I'd give it a try. Well, I'm extremely glad I did.

If this room was £40 cheaper then it would be a strong 4/5 for me, but as it is it's more of a 3.5/5. They made good use of the limited space, including some useful storage shelves. But ultimately this isn't a room designed for a week-long stay: you're here for a night or two at most. Similarly, if you're...

I received so nice treatment, I booked a single room and the day of my arrival I was informed that one of their apartments was free because somebody couldn't come and y¡they offered me for free! It means I payed for a single room and I have got an excellent apartment with awesome views of London skyline
