Great location, very close to London Bridge station, so excellent for transport links with the rest of London. Borough Market is very close and a good place to go to enjoy delicious, cheap(ish) street food. It's a short walking distance from the Shard, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, London Bridge Pier (for the Thames Clippers) and the Thames Path that easily takes you to Tate Modern and the South Bank. The nearby views across the river to the City of London are fabulous. After dark, a stroll along the Thames provides some great sights - The City lights at night, the Shard lit up and Tower Bridge in all its night time glory.
The hotel is modern, clean and quiet, with really comfortable beds. We didn't use the restaurants for any meals, as there's so many other great places to eat. There are minibars in the rooms, which seems rather quaint, as we can't imagine who'd pay such prices for drinks and snacks. £26 for a 200ml bottle of champagne, anyone?
But ignore all that overpriced stuff and enjoy the hotel and its surroundings. It's a really good base for getting easily to the so many of the sights of London.
