Lalit - Tower Bridge The Lalit has now opened after many years of refurbishment with a Victorian school theme, mixed with its Indian heritage. With an amazing restaurant and immaculate public areas - its a real find, dripping with character. It even has a Naan and Champagne bar!
Citizen M - Southwark Street This hotel provides an open space instead of just a reception - its a bar, coffee shop, working area, garden and library. Even if you don't stay here - you can pop in do do some work or have a meeting. Its a lifestyle place and one that certainly works well. Very friendly staff and a very non hotel atmosphere.
Shangri-La - London Bridge One of the best views in London from one of the the best hoteliers. This iconic building has re-defined the area and securing the Shangri-La was a stroke of genius. You can even just pop in for a drink and savour the view. Its 'only' on the 54th floor but still well worth the trip.
H10 Waterloo - Waterloo Road Funky Spanish owned hotel near the station and with a rooftop bar. Great views from most of the upper floor rooms over the landmarks of South Bank. Good cocktails too.
Mondrian Hotel - Upper Ground Bringing the stunning Sea Containers House back to life on the River Thames, the Mondrian Hotel is brand new and provides a variety of rooms and apartments with views across the water. Luxurious and contemporary, this is a stylish renovation of an old favourite and also houses an impressive spa with indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
London Bridge Hotel Situated right next to the Shard and London Bridge Station this hotel offers 4 star accommodation and the 'Quarter Bar and Lounge'. - a stylish, contemporary meeting place.
The Mad Hatter - Stamford Street A former hat factory, with an incredible whisky collection, this Fullers pub and hotel gives a very different slant to staying in the capital. Alice in Wonderland murals on the ceiling and massive leather sofas give a quirky feel. Not a mainstream place at all, but all the better for it!
