Unsurprisingly, the Bermondsey Square Hotel can be found in the up and coming district of Bermondsey to the southeast of London. With a budding artistic scene and close proximity to both fashionable circuits such as Shoreditch and financial hubs like Canary Wharf, the hotel is in an enviable position that enables different kinds of guests to experience London their way. The Design Museum, Tate Modern and Southbank Centre are all nearby to appeal to art lovers and culture vultures, and foodie heaven Borough Market is also a short distance away. Slightly further afield beats the commercial heart of the City, and the entire area is connected to the rest of London via Bermondsey station on the Jubilee line.
Free wireless internet is available throughout all public and private spaces in the hotel, ably equipping it for business and leisure travellers. There are three stylish meeting rooms available for guests who have business to conduct in the capital, and an outdoor terrace provides the perfect counterpoint to the working day with city views and sunshine. Dog owners can even hire a boutique dog bed for their canine companions!
In 2010 the Bermondsey Square Hotel was voted the most fashionable in the UK, and therefore each of its 80 rooms are the epitome of modern style whilst eschewing tackiness or ostentation. Quilted walls, colour schemes varying from monochrome to stark white and quirky furnishings make coming home at the end of a hectic day something to look forward to. All 60 Deluxe rooms come equipped with air conditioning, satellite television, mini-fridge, hairdryer, coffee and tea maker and ensuite bathroom, as well as iMacs that sync with your own portable device. Club rooms include extras like an iPod docking station or extra-comfortable mattress, and the 5 exclusive Loft Suites have additional luxuries such as a lounge area, hammock, japanese bath, private terrace and views overlooking the city skyline.
Not content with channelling effortless style through the decor and state-of-the-art facilities within its walls, the Bermondsey Square Hotel is also home to a highly recommended and fashionable restaurant, Alfie's Bar and Kitchen. Seating 90 guests in contemporary settings and with an outdoor terrace available in good weather, the restaurant serves traditional British dishes prepared with food from the nearby and award-winning Borough Market. For when you're in a hurry, the on-site 'Alfie's with Chips' shop serves the restaurant's own innovative take on a British classic, fish and chips, to take away.
