Recent guest reviews

We stayed in a crash pad for six nights. It was well situated near London Bridge underground and the Borough. It is a modern, very upmarket establishment with everything you need for a small apartment.Very comfortable bed, pillows and good linen. Kitchen well equipped with a microwave and oven, washer/dryer combo and a dishwasher. There is a complimentary pantry on the first floor to get one started with all the basics from oats to pasta, condiments, tea and coffee etc. What a wonderful touch. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would greatly recommend these apartments.

The two bed apt was imaginatively and stylishly fitted out. Staff at reception were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The complimentary snack bar was well stocked. I didn’t get to the gym on the top floor but I’m sure it’s to the standard of the rest of the building. Recommended. Lots to do on your doorstep. Easy access to rail and underground.

I was super impressed with my stay at Native Bankside, from being greeted and check in to all of the fine details in the room. It felt cosy and I LOVED the dim lighting feature. It's quiet and spacious with everything you need for a short or longer stay. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the vibrant London Bridget / bankside area.

We stayed one night in a studio for a concert at O2. Also great location for everything going on at Bankside and 5/10 minute walk to tube stations. Room wasn’t huge, but absolutely perfect for our stay. The kitchenette would be great for those wanting to cook themselves. Would definitely recommend.

Classy, clean, great service around the clock, terrific location that's a walking distance from several public transport stations, 30 seconds from the Thames, 3 minutes from the Tate Modern, 5-15 minutes from a slew of wonderful restaurants, and a room with all the amenities one could ask for. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth it. Would come back.

Spent Sunday night in this stunning, seamless, spotless property. I was welcomed and checked in by Ayesha who's been a great host with the perfect smile. I have not enough words to highly recommend all travellers to enjoy their stay in London at Native. There is also pantry and gym for you to enjoy included in the rate. Thank you so much for everything Native team and a special mention to Maria Chiara Colelli. Last but not least, you have my kindest appreciation for arranging a best wishes note and a very pleasant bottle of wine. Hopefully will return soon. Stay tuned, and keep the great work up. You made my Sunday and never forget you all❤

We stayed there in beginning of May and loved it! We got to the hotel in the middle of the night and we were welcomed by Julien which was so nice! And being french canadian and we were very happy to have someone who spoke french to welcome us and explain everything. He was extra nice. Rooms are small but renovated and have wifi. The beds were super comfortable. Only down side is the shower...water does get everywhere on the floor because there isn't any door and the drain is quite slow. You have access to a free pantry on the first floor with tea, water bottles, milk, fruit and other food you can bring up to your room. Loved that we had a fridge, washer, dryer, dishwasher in our room. The hotel is also well located, close to london bridge underground station and all bridges. Also nice restaurants around and right next to the borough market. so if you are a tourist it is pretty easy to get around the city and safe. - Rooms do not have any safes

We stayed here for 3 weeks whilst waiting to complete on our house. Excellent facilities, the complimentary pantry is a great addition. The kitchen is adequate for self catering. Very helpful and polite staff.

Stayed for 2 nights - it really is an apartment hotel so you get the benefits of a small apartment but not the benefits of a hotel stay eg rooms get cleaned once a week. I am not sure if all rooms are the same size, I stayed in 401 and I found it quite small. Fine for 2 nights I would not consider this room big enough for a long stay or if there were 2 people. Yes it has a fridge, 2 ring job, microwave, washing machine and microwave neatly packaged in a small area. My bed was just about accessible on three sides. The TV obviously had been attached to the wall at one point or even in two places given the damaged wall, but now resides on a table which eats into the limited space. Bathroom could do with a shelf to put your toiletries on, and being a wet room is fine but not if the door architrave is made of MDF which has already begun to expand as it sucks moisture up. However great location just 1 minute from South Bank restaurants and bars and also very quiet as it is not on a main street with traffic and so I had really undisturbed sleep. Personally I did not like the pillows 1 was not enough 2 would leave me with a cricked neck.... I too enjoyed the pantry and this is a great idea. I hate places where you get 2 teabags and 2 milks - so this is a big plus. so I would probably stay there again and perhaps some rooms are bigger, a few changes could make this place even better

Excellent service, beautiful ambiance and well facilitated apartment. I enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere which was a haven to return right in the locality of the busy bankside. Location is perfect if you want to enjoy a walk by the riverside anytime.
