London City Hotel could hardly be better located for ease of transport around the city of London. It is quite literally next door to the Borough tube station, which is on the Northern Line and just a few stops away from Waterloo station, providing convenient access to many of the city's other various underground services. The Northern Line connects guests to attractions such as Westminster, Oxford Street and a good deal of the city's theatres.
Within walking distance of the hotel is the artsy area of South Bank full of theatres and galleries, including the famous Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, which is modelled on the original 16th century property. Also within walking distance are the Florence Nightingale Museum, The London Aquarium and The London Eye, all clustered together and making for a great day out.
The hotel itself is a small 3 star property with 16 reasonably sized guest rooms, meaning that it is fairly intimate and guests will often bump into familiar faces on the stairs or in the lobby. The rooms have all been pleasantly decorated with white walls and warm red carpets, curtains and bedspreads, some with leather easy chairs, making them simple but stylish and very inviting and comfortable. The hotel has an additional faxing service which guests may use at an extra charge; an added convenience for those in town on business.
