Staff: had a really negative interaction at check-in View: from ground floor lobby till the 7th floor the whole building overlooks a cemetery! Great if you’re visiting during halloween Location: near london bridge but away from everything else Price: too high Rooms: not so modern in my opinion The balcony was a plus. Tv is old There was a column literally in the middle of the room (?) Sound insulated but can improve They provide a hairdryer Plenty of mirrors They don’t answer the phone when you call for reception (?) Toilets: big but rusty. I had a plugged sink for no reason Toiletries are good Hot water available Mini bar and welcoming package were adorable +1 points Lobby: nice and big Elevators: slow No ramp at the entrance for your luggage, the lift doesn’t work either and no one will help you

Beautiful property and staff was wonderful. I’ve worked in hospitality and travel my whole life. I truly appreciate everything. In town for American football match at Wembley and only mention because the ease of getting to the property from there and Heathrow by train, big plus. Great restaurant on property and balcony on my room comes with view overlooking the Tower Bridge which was a selling point for me. Thx again
