The hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from London Bridge Station and the same from the other direction and Southwark Station. Flat Iron Square is less than 5 minute walk and Borough Market is just over 5 minutes walk away. It is such a great location for travelling or staying in the area with loads to do. Checking...

Have stayed in all the usual hotels in London so I was looking for something a little different for a weekend away with my partner. Having read the reviews on here for CitizenM I thought we'd give it a go....The first thing that hit me was the vibe of the place upon entering.....no stuffy reception area or aloof staff, just...

Hello citizenSteve Out of the ordinary is always a good thing. We believe that the hotel experience can be much more than dull lobbies and crystal chandeliers. That is why we dared to be different in our dream to provide affordable luxury for the people. We are sorry that you had a rude awakening on Saturday night. The alarms are...

This hotel is amazing, the lobby is something to behold, the rooms are so hip, free movies are really a bonus (good title selection too, no old cheap b-movies, only premium new releases)! Loved this place, also the location is perfect, it is literally located behind the Tate, 5min away from boroughs market (great to have breakfast there), and a...

Hey 'NonnaDiBruder' You are something to behold. Our hotel was created for the modern day traveller. Sick of cheap movies, complicated wifi and stuffy lobbies. It is fantastic to hear the ambassadors made your stay extra special. The simple gestures make the difference. Like a red rose. Spread the love, citizenMichael

For the money I paid (GBP 190) I got a small, but very cool room with a good bed, great selection of movies and minibar for free, a nice iPad to control it all and a very good venue for meetings and a late night drink! Very good service.. so if the need for a room is limited to sleep...

Hey 'Gudleiv' We are far from normal here at citizenM. We have pushed the boundaries of the traditional hotel model and re-imagined the experience. All designed for our mobile citizens. Our rooms are on the smaller side. The frequent travellers nowadays would prefer to pay for a huge comfy bed, rain shower and free wifi and movies than a bathtub...

While primarily a business hotel, CitizenM Bankside is a wonderful place to stay in London. My family (4 of us) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I have no hesitation in recommending it. A few standouts: 1. Casual, friendly and relaxed approach from staff; 2. Staff actually appeared to really enjoy working there ... showing through in the service and accomodating...

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
