Not sure where in London (central) you would find a hotel this good for these £££. We stayed 2years ago it is still as good. It's an iPad now! It was a Samsung tablet last time. Really handy for Shard and London Bridge etc

I have been there now twice this autumn and have got same experience both times. It's very modern hotel with among other things self service check in/out, free wifi, room control (lights, tv etc.) by iPad. It's just few minutes walk from Bankside of Thames River and very near to Tate Modern.

Great vibe, modern and functional. Excellent choice for people who appreciate good design and don't want to sacrifice function over style. Never hung out in a hotel lobby as much as at this place - feels more like a big living room than a hotel lobby.

I love everything about the CitizenM group of hotels and have stayed in the Bankside and Schipol a couple of times. Once I stayed 5 nights in London. If you can deal with not having a kettle in your room (why, when you can get a fresh latte at the CanteenM?) The rooms are on point, with fruit juices, free...

CitizenM has designed a hotel that is perfect for me when traveling solo or with my wife and I will plan to stay at their locations in other cities in the future. The CitizenM London Bankside is located two blocks behind the Tate Modern and just a short walk to the Thames and the Southwark Bankside walk. This is a...

Overall our first experience of a Citizen M hotel was excellent. The decor and facilities are terrific and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was well equipped, comfortable and the styling and functionalities are clever especially the tablet that controls all of the in-room operations. The bar and restaurant area is great.. and the flat-white was...

Popped up to London for 2 nights to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. It's a beautiful property; very modern and the massive communal area on the ground floor could easily be mistaken for a uber trendy furniture showroom but at the same time it had a great warm comfy feeling to...

Enjoyed the Welcome and the atmosphere, staff was very friendly. Rooms are small, but everything works, everything in Minibar is free, Wifi is great and bed and shower are comfortable. Breakfast was good as well, had a full english, only the scrambled eggs were slightly dry. Atmosphere in the morning is nice, resembles a bit one of those cafes where...

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.
