London, baby

... To be fair, the food was bloody disappointing for what you pay. We kiwis are used to good quality food, fresh produce etc etc. we are so spoiled really I've come to realize. Julia's tired, so after 1 mojito and 1 glass of red wine we head back to the hotel. I look at the clock and think surely it's wrong. It's 8 bloody 30 on a Friday night, in London, and I'm sitting in a hotel room ready to go to bed. Oh my how things change! Sa************** to Vicky's flat ...

This is a top pick!

The bags are packed and we are ready to go, excited to be returning to Asia tomorrow.

It's been just under two years since we set off on our first travelling adventure to China, South Korea and Japan. We returned two months later and have been working in London since then, now we feel it is definitely time to embark on one last big adventure before we settle down!

Our flight ...

Today we had a busy day! Jason and Madison woke up at 7:45 and hiked it to The Louvre. Jason was super nervous because when they got there at 8:30 for a 9:00 opening, they were about 100th in line! Luckily the line went super quick and they were seeing the Mona Lisa by 9:15! Madison said it was TINY and she couldn't see what all the hype was all about....gotta love children!

After seeing the museum they high tailed it back to us ...

    Overall this was a great place to stay. The room was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location was great - an easy walk to the Thames, Globe Theater and Tower of London. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Excellent Experience


    I only stayed one night, but i was very happy with this great Hotel. The location is a bit away from the central area of London , but really close to London Bridge, Tower Bridge and across the Thames from The Tower of London. The staff were very friendly and check-in was a dream, we checked in for six rooms in less than ten minutes.

    Smart central budget hotel


    Only stayed here one night for a christmas function but found the Rose to have refreshingly modern decor, room was very clean and comfortable not jaded or tired like so many rooms Ive stayed in. The power wasn't switched on to the kitchen in the suite but staff fixed it within about 15 minutes. The door keys do seem a bit erratic but persevere with them and put them in and out the lock slooowly!



    This is a cool hotel in an excellent location. We got a good deal by using one of the internet-based discount hotel companies. The room was small but perfectly formed - the blackout blind was a nice touch and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in. We expected there to be quite a bit of noise at night as we were situated on the side of the hotel nearest the road but it wasn't a problem at all.

    The location was really good. I didn't know much about Southwark but the hotel was just a 5 minute walk from London Bridge tube station and a 2 minute walk to the Thames. It was a nice 5 minute stroll along the banks of the river to the Tate Modern and there were plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants nearby.

    We would stay here again.



    I was expecting a business hotel with nice amenities and after a week of staying there I wish I had booked next door. The main problem is that the phones did not work causing my colleagues and I many problems, and the front desk never admitted to a problem. The service was below average, I was given many keys that did not work, dinner specials were not available, and general hospitality was not received. It was definitely below my expectations and I was constantly upset with the hotel.

    Excellent Place to Stay


    We stayed here for one night in February. Compared to other hotels the Southwark Rose is excellent value for money. The price is cheaper but the standards are higher. The room and bathroom were spotless. The funky design of the hotel gives it a great atmosphere but its not at all pretentious.

    The location is great and I would definately recommend this hotel to friends.

    Little gem!


    I visited this hotel with my boyfriend in August 2004 for 3 nights after finiding a great deal on the Internet. What a find it was! A five minute walk from the tube station and only an extra 5 mins walk to London Bridge and London Dungeon-simply ideal! If you're prepared to walk a bit further you can stroll by the Thames alongside HMS Belfast and the stunning Tower Bridge (took us about 30 mins but sights along the way are amazing on an evening!)

    Great Hotel


    Stayed at this hotel, service was friendly and helpful, reception staff most helpful, lovley styled hotel with excellent decor, good vibrant area which is a hidden gem of London, I would love to use this hotel when family stay in London, I would recommend this hotel to anyone to use.

    Great place despite poor service


    Very stylish for a budget hotel. Very clean and new, and quad rooms were spacious with nice bathroom and partial kitchen facilities. Tube isn't right around the corner, but still very convenient at about a 10 minute walk and with your choice of a couple different stations and lines. The neighborhood isn't much talked about in guidebooks, but was actually pretty cool, especially the nice walk by Vinopolis and Southwark Cathedral to London Bridge tube stop. My only complaint would be lackluster service from the staff. The internet computer was broken for our entire stay, and apparently had been for some weeks previous. No one was anxious to deal with the problem. When I called the front desk to ask for information I had planned to look up online (museum hours, e.g.), they couldn't tell me and couldn't be bothered to look it up for me, or even look up the number I would have to call (no phone book in the room). I didn't expect concierge service, but a little willingness to help would have been nice. I did a lot of research, and would be surprised if one could find something better at this price, for a quad at least.

    Great little find - a superb bargain


    I booked this hotel as I was attending an event nearby, and there seem to be very few hotels in this part of London. For the bargain price of £69, we got a small but beautifully decorated room, spotless and well stocked bathroom, plus all the amenities you'd expect of a budget hotel. The hotel itself is clean, bright and modern, and has a bar/restaurant with ridiculously cheap prices. I'm not sure if breakfast was included, as we didn't bother to hunt it out.

    Modern bargain in london


    Needed a suite in London and found a bargain in The Southwark Rose. Conveniently located near the London Bridge Station (tube, buses to all of London), the Tate Modern and the (fabulous) Borough Market, it's modern, clean and quiet, if a bit austere, with coffee/tea making facilities (and complimentary tea/coffee), a microwave and a refrigerator. Blackout curtains keep the very bright hotel rooms dark at night. Staff was obliging. I would definitely stay there again.
