I stayed here with a few colleagues from sunday-wednesday, not knowing what to expect. I immidiately was very impressed with the manner of checkin, similar to an airline checkin, the hotel has all kinds of modern gadgets and the style really fits all ages groups between 20-30-40. Room was a surprising experience. Everything could be controlled with an ipad mini,...

Easy check in process, friendly staff, fabulous public areas and a very high tech feel are all great. But wow the room was small. A built-in toilet/shower unit with the sink out in the bedroom don't make for a sophisticated feeling. Gadgets and iPad driven everything are cool, but personally I prefer a bed that two people can use without...

Thank you for posting your thoughts Simon. It's good to know that there were many elements of your stay that you enjoyed; just a shame you found the rooms too small. We do not hide from this fact and it is one of the reasons why we are able to offer such affordable rates. Our target market is namely the...

Offers five star quality with good value. The trade off is the rooms are quite small but if you go expecting this then it's not a problem. The hotel has a cool bar downstairs although the drinks were expensive - the are plenty of other options nearby if you prefer. Tate modern is a stones throw away and there is...

Very quirky hotel. Room is basic and small but very clean. Very with the times with an ipad that controls everything in the room - tv, music, lighting, blinds! We stayed here for 3 nights over the New Year. Was just what we needed - a clean space with a cosy bed to rest after all the sight seeing. Bar...

A well presented hotel. The bar area is very well laid out and a comfortable area to relax in any time of the day. The rooms are practical with some great features. The bed is huge and comfortable. The drinks in the fridge are included in the price of the room as was a free cocktail at the bar. I...

This is the second time I have stayed at Citizen M. The hotel is so funky and modern, the bed is so cosy and comfortable and I would be happy to just lounge in my hotel room all day. It's really central to all south bank attractions and when I checked out I headed to the nearby borough market. The...

Well located in the Bankside, a 10 minutes walk to the London Bridge Tube station, a 7 minutes to the Southwark Tube station, and a 8 minutes walk to the Tate Modern Museum, close to the Thames River. In front you have a Marks & Spencer store for everything, and several restaurants at the Avenue, but no so many pubs....

A quirky hotel in a good location to travel London. It was nice to be so close to the market as well. The public areas were amazingly decorated and we enjoyed the mini fridge in the room. Although citizenm are trying to be different, I feel like a mini kettle could easily fit in the room and add a bit...

Booked this hotel as a last minute stay in London and I must say it was absolutely amazing! From the minute we arrived until the minute we left, I just couldn't fault it.

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.
