Nice hotel close to the Underground

Pros: Big rooms, neat shower, very ultra modern. Staff in the restaurant were great! They let us borrow cutlery & even opened a bottle for us!
Cons: Pool was very chilly and the wall was blank, unlike in the hotel photos where it looked like a fish tank.
Location: Get on the Southwark Underground
My wife and I really liked the hotel. Easy to navigate. Nice sauna. Big rooms, neat shower, very ultra modern. Staff in the restaurant were great! They let us borrow cutlery & even opened a bottle for us! Contacted them early about merging two reservations and they did so easily.
