Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveOB Good hotel experience
The hotel is in a great location for cultural or business activities in the city and, for London, is keenly priced. The staff are friendly and courteous and the rooms are clean and comfortable, albeit not huge. The hotel is located a stone's throw from the Tate Modern, and Shakepeare's Globe is just a few minutes' walk away. Theatreland is just about walkable, or you can simply take the tube there from one of the several nearby stations. Overall this is one hotel to consider seriously for your next trip or holiday in London.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bw22554 Functional bolthole next to the Globe
This is a typical Holiday Inn Express, and I stay here often.
The hotel is in Southwark Street, just opposite the Globe Theatre and close to Blackfriars Bridge. As expected with the brand, it is a functional rather than exciting hotel.
It is clean and tidy, although looking a little dated in the public areas. The rooms and beds are comfortable and quiet and the air-conditioning is excellent. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel at good connection speeds (Sufficient to FaceTime).
The hotel is ideally placed for all the attractions of the South Bank and is well served by both public and black taxis. It is a few metres / yards from the Jubilee Walkway and is a pleasant 20 minute stroll away from the London Eye, Parliament and the Strand.
