Holiday Inn Express London - Southwark

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed there for two nights and we were quite satisfied. The room was comfortable enough, quiet, clean. There was a kettle and even an ironing board with an iron. People were very friendly and helpful. Location is very good, easy to reach the most important tourists attractions in London. The only weak point was the breakfast - pretty limited selection. But for two days - can survive :-) Definitely recommend if you do not look for a luxury but comfortable place at reasonable price

This is the second time I’ve stayed here. It’s very convenient for the City, Blackfriars tube station is nearby, Borough Market, Bankside and the South Bank are a short stroll away, it’s clean, inexpensive for London, and the breakfast is good. If you need somewhere to stay in central London, it’s well worth a try here.

To be fair we picked this hotel on both price and location, both were spot on. The front reception very friendly and professional, the room completely satisfactory. Breakfast very busy but plenty of food all extremely nice. Would have no problems recommending this hotel to anyone, thank you

This hotel is very closed to Tate Modern and London Bridge, as well as Borough market. The front desk is very help and friendly. As most of room in London, hotel room is small. Breakfast is good with delicious croissants. the bacon is very big and thick and I like it when it is more dry. A lot of people like the sausage. We stayed for 6 nights and we enjoy our stay. It is good to eat breakfast a little early. when it come to to after 9, it is very busy.

The hotel is in a quiet area within a short walk to the Southwark Tube station. We were early for check in. There were no early rooms available, but they secured our bags in a safe area. We booked a double room, but there were none available. They put us in a room with a pull out couch, thinking they were doing us a favour, but who wants to stay on a pull out couch? They tried hard to find us something else and offered to change us after a day, if we wanted. To help make up for it they offered water and drink vouchers. The bed was comfortable. The room cleanliness was only okay. There were some weird stains on the walls that could have easily been cleaned. The breakfast was good. It was often empty, but they pretty quickly replenished it. All in all, I would stay there again, because I know what I'll be getting and it was pretty good.

TL;DR - okay room in a hotel tucked in a quiet neighborhood. The hotel was under going some renovation while I was there, but aside from not using the front entrance, this was not an issue. The room was okay size, and the bed was comfortable, but there were no drawers or cabinets in the room, and I had to hang my clothes up in full view. Additionally, there was no mini-fridge to keep my drinks in. Additionally, during my stay, the outside temp ranged from about 58 to 65F the whole stay, and the hotel did not turn on the heat as it was still 'summer', so the room got quite cold at night. There were a restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, with no noticeable road noise.

Stayed here whilst on business trip. The check in was quick and friendly. The room was spotlessly clean with a lovely firm bed. Had a good nights sleep as the room was quiet. Before checking out stayed for breakfast as was not disappointed, good choice of self-service hot and cold buffet. Will certainly stay here again as the central location is ideal. Would recommend to others.

Great stay and great location. Our room was nice and always clean. The breakfast was always hot and nicely done. We were conveniently located between two subway stations. We were easily within walking distance to most major downtown landmarks.

Good location for easy access around london, particularly with the southwark tube station nearby. Check in was easy, and given a room even though I arrived well before check in time. Stayed in an accessible room on the ground floor which has not yet been renovated, but was large with high ceilings. Wifi excellent throughout and free. Breakfast was fine; not too crowded. Staff were helpful and friendly. Only downside for me was the absence of a gym - which was a downer when it was raining outside.

Stayed 2 nights, very comfortable - good shower, bed and room. Staff very welcoming on arrival. Breakfast average but it is what it is a more budget hotel . Very handy for Tate Modern and the river. A bit noisy if you have the window open - but fine if shut..
