Historical Traveller Reviews of Mercure London City Bankside Hotel
Great hotelfrom 123cat
French Food Failedfrom Oakie_Dude
The only negative points were the rather disappointing room service food (very small Cannelloni) and the shower (temperature a bit random)
Very satisifedfrom hegelianist
The staff might have a little difficulty getting your surname or first name right from the internet booking details but this is a minor issue as otherwise they are very helpful. Generally a functional hotel but it does have flashings of style and has a relaxed atmosphere.
Very comfortable beds, clean well serviced rooms and excellent food/ menu. Great location if you want a place near Bankside or Waterloo.
Clean, comfortable hotelfrom NomadPrincess
The rooms are quite small but modern with comfortable facilities including the usual tea, coffee etc.
I have stayed here twice on business and it is very conveniently located - close to Waterloo station and other attractions (opposite the Tate Modern and close to the River bank).
I have not bothered with breakfast either time as I feel that £13.50 is quite a lot of money to pay when you can get a good cooked breakfast nearby for less than half the price. If you are a tourist then take a trip to one of the pubs on the River bank who do very hearty, reasonably priced breakfasts etc.
I ate dinner here on one occasion and to be honest it was pretty bland and boring but edible.
All in all a well located hotel, good for short stays.
Good for a weekend breakfrom coconuts10
The breakfast (not included in our room rate) was very expensive, so we chose not to have it.
Our room was comfortable and spacious enough by London standards.
We would stay here again.
This hotel won't take your breath away, but we got a good discounted price and it was good enough for a short stay.
Very happy - clean, good food, helpful staf.....from amrob100
Breakfast was excellent & we really enjoyed our stay. The price we payed was greatly reduced from the one advertised at reception (booked through superbreak.com) so I consider what we payed to be excellent value for money - not sure I would have felt the same if I had payed full price - that was v expensive as far as I am concerned - but things are!
We were able to walk to Covent Garden where we had a lovely meal before the show - this took about 25 mins at a gentle pace & even felt safe and happy to walk back. Also went to Tate gallery in the morning before we came home - that is approx 3 mins walk away - fab!
I would have no problem in recommending this place x
Cheap and Cheerfulfrom Deslorna
Very Happy with Hotelfrom alex_toronto
We got to the hotel after a miserable flight and long drive into the city centre. We parked illegally and went to check in and find legitimate parking. Turns out we could park in their drive for free. Bonus. Room was London-sized, clean and modern.
Location of hotel is great. Right across the street from the Tate Modern, with the Millennium Bridge to take you across to St Paul's cathedral.
As we left the hotel I said to my husband how much nicer and 100 times more pleasant the Mercure is than some of the other hotels we've stayed at in London.
Christmas eve night I realized that I'd left my diamond earrings (worth more sentimentally as they were a university graduation present from my dad many years ago) on the window sill in the room. We call the hotel (keep in mind it's 10pm on the 24th of Dec.) and they offer to look around. No earrings in the room, but they say they'll speak to housekeeping in the morning. We call in the morning, but no luck finding the earrings. They say they'll call the next day (26th) once the regular staff are back. We visit my husband's grandmother, come back on the 27th to no message from the hotel. I make a last ditch call to the hotel manager. I leave a message, and later that same day he calls me to tell me they've found the earrings! Yay! He is more than accommodating, offering to send the earrings registered.
I think it says alot about the management and company itself that they hire honest employees to whom I am very grateful. I was impressed with this budget hotel before I realized the earrings were missing, and I'm more impressed now.
Hotel correct well located in the centrefrom IZA78

Top Local Tips for London
Oyster Cards Buy an Oyster Card upon arrival or beforhand on the web. It costs £3 to buy and add some cash (pay as you go) it's the cheapest way to get around and you can use it on both the trains and buses. A single is only £1.50 compared to a £4 paper ticket!
