    Fabulous

    The bedroom was good for a 5 day trip but if longer (1 week or more) could have chosen a bigger room and the staff were very helpful taking care and attention to my 11 year old son. I liked the Nespresso and tea at the end of the day, and also the morning paper.

    Having to pay for the breakfast without it being included in the room price, as the majority of hotels in London do. The wake up call failed for one day but all in all the staff was helpful, except for information on buses as I and my 11 year old son had to walk to/from the hotel and Southwark underground station for the first 2 days, until I discovered a bus stop just outside the hotel, which I thought was supposed to be only for tourist buses, and that was quite tiring.

    The staff were outstanding and I wish to offer every praise. The room was very nice with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was also very good. the position of the hotel was ideal for my needs and I look forward to returning on another occasion.

    I have no negative points to raise

    Good hotel for visiting London - 5 mins walk from London Bridge Station. We had upgraded room which was comfortable and quiet. Go to Borough Market for breakfast - fantastic food!!

    Superb

    We have stayed here before and found it very convenient. We have also tried other hotels on this area and have regretted the experience. The Mercure exudes an air of smart efficiency and genuine caring for the quality of the visit. The staff are all smart and non intrusive. The restaurant is simply a pleasure. The locally sourced produce is very pleasant.

    This is not really a list of items that we did not like, since the overall experience was so positive. An irritation, shared with all other hotels, is the lack of or uncertainty of having a free wi fi connection in the room. The TV did not have freeview; why not ? after all it is free. Once again, as all hotels, the lighting is fairly dim.

    Superb

    We were staying overnight for the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics so arrived back at the hotel very late. The hotel was open, the front desk was open and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location for London Bridge Tube and Waterloo were excellent.

    Superb

    Friendly and efficient staff upon arrival, our room was clean and spacious with a big comfy bed. The later checkout of 12 appealed when I was looking to book as I new we would want a lie in after a late night! I would use this hotel again or other locations and would happily recommend to a friend.

    Very professional staff and excellent breakfast choices. The hotel is well positioned for cultural visits to St Pauls and The City, to both Tate galleries, the Jerwood Space, the Globe, Greenwich for the Observatory etc, the South Bank for music or theatre. Borough Markets are fantastic and just on the doorstep.Great access to Thames clippers - the best way to travel around London if you want to be near the river. Lots of good places to eat nearby and plenty of good beers and wines to be had. Suited our purposes very well - a party at the Jerwood, dinner at Vinopolis, and a range of visits to museums, galleries, exhibitions.

    Rooms a bit small and only one chair - but we really only wanted a place to sleep so fine for that.

    Superb

    Breakfasts - excellent. Reception staff helpful and well informed (including the use of Oyster Cards) Nice thought to congratulate my companion on her birthday, 19th Feb.

    The Standard Room (MY choice when booking) is surprisingly small, as is the bathroom! OK for a couple of nights but not for a longer stay. Could not understand why the extractor fan in the bathroom appeared be operated from 06.15 hrs (disturbing at that hour) and made to run continuously, whether the bathroom was utilised, or not. And similarly later in the day and early evening..........Not, as I understand, its normal function in life.

    Good

    The rooms were clean and all the facilities quoted were provided. The location was exactly what we needed.

    The room on floor 5 faced directly onot some extensive building works and as we were away for a weekend break celebrating my birthday we had planned lazy morning starts which we certainly didnt get, despite shut windows the noise was at such a level even the room tv couldnt drown out the noise. Works were every day before 8am including Sunday. The upgraded toiletries were cheap imports from Asia so the claim for the privilege room didnt apply. The trainee who booked us in had no local knowledge and I only gained a map as I overheard other guests being offered them. They also were told they could pay for any extras such as room service and the mini bar as they went through their stay whereas we were told we had to pay £150 on a credit card to open the account despite having paid for our room in full weeks before our stay. As an Police employee the trust didnt extend to us - why are guests treated differently??
