This is a very funky, high concept hotel. We loved the overall mood and the design. Fabulous common spaces, ultra friendly and helpful staff and overall a beautiful and engaging physical environment. In the room, the positives were the really comfortable and HUGE bed and the attention to detail in the way the room is set up and organised, including...

This was my second stay at this hotel. The vibe was still hip and relaxed - with extremely attentive and friendly staff. The location is also great, near Southwark, The Shard and all of the great restaurants and pubs around Borough Market. This may just be my favorite hotel in the world, particularly when I consider the very reasonable price.

Even our 29 year old son who lives in London was impressed when he stayed here with us on his birthday. There was a wedding party in the hotel too. I am a fan of everything historical but also anything unusual so this was a great contrast for me. I loved playing with the tablet in the room to control...

CitizenM Bankside is a great hotel about 10 minutes of walking distance from London Borough station. The hotel itself is in a very quiet street. Nearby is waterloo with several great restaurants, Borough market and the whole area by the bankside with Tate Modern and tons of restaurants, bars, attractions and the lovely walk by the water ofcourse. Location wise,...

Stayed here a few days after finding out about this chain by staying in the Glasgow CitizenM. More crowded and bustling than my experience in Glasgow, but I suppose that's to be expected. Otherwise, another great experience. Love the decor. The room was identical to Glasgow. The only difference was the sluggish Samsung tablet as compared to the iPad in...

The hotel has great interior with warm reception and bar area. It is a nice place to chill in the evening to have drinks. The rooms are nice and cozy. Just a bit small but worked just fine for us for a quick a getaway with great pricing. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is thoughtfully designed and presented. The decor is colourful, interesting, funky. Like the idea of open area both bar, plenty of different sorts of seating, nice food. The rooms are small but very functional and more than adequate fro people who are out most of the day. There is a small fridge in the room, which is handy....

Great place 6 months ago. Now atttacting a greying, older crowd. Somewhat explains the higher prices and worse bar atmosphere. Staff are still brilliant and offer is still good but fellow guests mean this place is past its best.

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.
