Hilton London Bankside 5 stars

Southwark, London

Boasting an indoor pool, a restaurant, a fitness centre and a cocktail bar, the Hilton London Bankside also has free WiFi access. Situated on London’s popular South Bank, the hotel is 11 minutes’ stroll from Borough Market and London Waterloo Train Station. The staff were so helpful and welcoming on arrival and during our stay. We stayed in a kingsize deluxe room and it came with complimentary cookies and bottled water which was a lovely touch. Breakfast is probably the best I've eaten in a hotel of this standard. There was a large choice of hot foods, pastry and cold cuts.

citizenM London Bankside 4 stars

Southwark, London

The citizenM design hotel itself features a 24-hour reception and contemporary shared living areas furnished with Vitra fittings. Guests may also take advantage of the free iMac’s available to them as well as the complimentary printing service. Everything!! What a great stay. We booked it last minute as we had to cancel our stay in the CitizenM Paris due to government restrictions. But Eirini, Kuba, Giulia, Melodie and Cristina went far and beyond to make our stay incredible!! We have never felt so welcomed at a hotel before. When they found out it was my partner’s birthday, they arrange a completely out-of-the-blue surprise and he was thrilled. Their mojo is ‘a home away from home’. And boy, they did honour that! We can’t recommend them enough and we are already planning a future visit with friends so we can stay with them again. There are two underground stations close by and Borough Market and the river Thames are also very close. Great food and great sleep, what else can you ask for?! 1000% recommended!!! We are very grateful to the staff, with special mention to Eirini and Kuba who were the ones working behind scenes to make our stay so special. Muchas gracias!!

The Ampersand Hotel 5 stars

Kensington, London

Bedrooms at The Ampersand are individually decorated with bold contemporary wallpaper designs and original Victorian features. Each room has a minibar, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, and an en suite bathroom. Everything - Room is very beautiful. It is facing the nice traditional bldg opposite the hotel. This is especially nice on the sunny day when you opened curtain and welcomed by sun streaks and beautiful view. - Location: it is so close to South Ken subway station. although it is not in the heart of sightseeing, with that station on the Green Line everything is very accessible. It’s close to main museums and concert hall though. It is peaceful in the sense that it’s local residential area with some mixture of tourists, so it can be bustling and lively in the good way too. Many nice restaurants and cafes around the hotel too. Most open since the morning. - Staff : very professional and helpful. There is a thai lady staff at the reception who recommended me a good thai restaurant not far from hotel, and gave me the beautiful room. I didn’t have chance to thank you her upon checkout on the restaurant recommendation which I went back twice.

The Hide London 4 stars

Hendon

Located just 2 minutes' walk from Hendon Central Tube Station, The Hide London offers free onsite parking and free WiFi. This boutique 4-star hotel is a 10-minute drive from the famous Wembley Stadium. The room was well appointed, all fixture and fittings are better than they need to be and the place has a definite designer feel yet the price I paid was very good value - ideal place for getting into London 25 minutes on the Northern Line with the station 3 minutes walk - I have stayed before and will stay again
