We were very impressed with Native Bankside. Location was fantastic, a short walk from Blackfriars station. Studio room was clean, spatious, comfortable and had a well equipped modern kitchen. It was just fabulous, better than the pictures! And the staff were fantastic, happy & helpful despite having to work New Year Eve! Very impressed! Well done! We will definitely come back :)

Stayed four days here and really impressed. Great location with easy access to rail, tube and river although we walked to most places as it was so convenient. Thames clipper boats pick up from the end of the road, about two minutes walk, ideal for getting to the O2 arena. Staff were very friendly and available to help if needed. We had one of the larger rooms with an extra bathroom and a nice kitchen area. Due to where the building is there was only one window and it was in the bedroom, didn't matter to us but may bother some. Couldn't find any room instructions, again didn't matter but would have been handy. Would definitely stay again
