If you must stay on this side of the Thames, The Bermondsey is the place to stay! The staff is fab! The other guests are super nice and friendly. And the beds! The beds on the 6th floor are the it!!! I am ordering one! I have never slept better in London than in this hotel! The room was a nice size (compared to London rooms), and their use of space was terrific - everything a girl-on-the-go-on-business needs: tea/desk/bed! Omg and the shower! I'm a soak-in-the-tub type, but their designer shower was like a lovely waterfall. Oh, and the location and ease of access was terrific! I walked everywhere! I seriously cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel, location and the experience. Just do the 6th floor...FABULOUS!
Location The internet connection was poor and uncertain in all areas of the hotl. Forcing us to find internet access other places
do serviço e dos quartos
Está bem situado, junto a uma estação de metro e de comboio e tem pessoal atencioso O pequeno almoço podia ser um pouco melhorado.
De tudo. Foi óptimo. Ter na ementa do restaurante, se possível, um pratinho...português..!!!
O pequeno almoço era excelente e o pessoal bastante acessível e simpático. Devido ao frio que se fazia sentir na cidade de Londres, a temperatura do ar condicionado do quarto deixou muito a desejar... Fiz questão de fazer saber ao pessoal da recep~ção que enviou uma funcionária ao quarto para verificar. Constatou que a temperatura para ela estava boa e que o termostato do AC parava a um determinada temperatura. Que outros clientes também haviam dito que se estava melhor o corredor do que nos quartos. Mais nada fizeram. Existia um secador "escondido" que funcionava durante uns 15 segundos e depois deixava de dar. Tinhamos qe esperar um bocado para voltar a funcionar, ou seja, o cabelo era seco aos bocados :(
This building is intended for student housing for the London School of Economics, but in the off season it rents out like a hotel. As such, the rooms are fairly bare and unadorned, but that's fine by me as I didn't spend much time in the rooms aside from sleeping. Food: On premises there is a cafeteria that serves hot breakfast (bacon, fried potatoes, fried bread, fruit, yogurt, cereal, sausage, eggs, etc). The breakfast tastes like college food, but it's plentiful. There is also dinner some days I guess, but I never attended it. There is also a nice bar! There is pool,darts and foosball. The drinks are VERY cheap (think student prices). Location: The new Tate Modern building is being built nearby, and I think it may be done by the time the next summer season rolls around. The current one is very close by as are several bridges, the BlackFriars train stop, Borough market (very fun), many food options, the walkway along the river and the Globe Theatre. Honestly, I thought this place was great. The only issue I encountered was that someone was smoking somewhere on our floor and it smelled pretty bad.
The staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. Fresh towels and soap every day. Breakfast was wonderful as well. The water pipes were so old you were not supposed to dring water from the faucet. There was lots of mold in the shower and the bed was basically a fold-out.
