Until my next visit. I will surely come back!

This is student accommodation outside the summer months. It’s in a marvellous location just beside the Millenium Bridge and Tate Modern. St. Paul’s Cathedral just across the bridge. The breakfast is excellent with great choice and the rooms are clean and comfortable but a bit dated. Free wifi and there’s a nice basement bar . Laundry facilities available also. Good value for money and I only wish it was available all year round.

Great value for money. Excellent location right next to Tate modern with short walking to the bank. Nicely cooked copious breakfast , rooms are laid-out in a way to keep the noise of people walking by or slamming doors at a minimum level, with every two rooms sharing a communal space and a entry door keeping out the corridor noise. One downside was the squeaky noise on my roof from guests on the 7th floor walking while mine was on 6th. Guess it’s a random problem depending on different rooms.

This is student accommodation so set your expectations accordingly, but the venue is very central next to the Tate Modern on the South Bank, not far from Waterloo station. Single room was very clean with tea/coffee/toiletries provided; shower/toilet shared but only with another room. The staff were friendly and welcoming. All COVID regulations are in place. Breakfast is included-porridge, fruit, hot and cold buffet-no frills but great choice. Overall very good value for money in central London.

Location is good for travellers who wants to see places around London”

I was being informed that this hotel is used mainly by students and their parents during admission process as well as for hostel purpose. During college vacation , building is being converted & rented as hotel. If the above info is true, then such details should be published on website so that visitors have clarity on the type of place they are going to stay. Having said that, the hotel is good and clean and visitors can stay even if hotel is tagged of being a hostel accommodation. Breakfast spread is good . Highly recommend. Points for improvement:- 1. Bathing area is too small and hand shower is must to have proper bath. 2. Room needs to be cleaned on daily basis and not once in 3 days as rooms are rented as hotel rooms and not as hostel rooms. 3. Television set needs to be provided for entertainment purpose especially when rooms are rented as hotel rooms. 4. Door Bell to be installed on each room. 5. Chicken sausages may be provided in addition to beef/ pork sausages.

Friendly staff, great breakfast, good location, but my only two complaints would that you could only open the window a couple of inches and air did not flow in which kept the room extremely hot and stuffy while outside was cool (asked for a fan which staff did provide but was inadequate), and even if I could open the window more the building across the lane way 24/7 was creating a high compressed air noise continually as if you had a plane engine in our room
