South Point Suites is located on Bermondsey Street which is a short walk from London Bridge underground station. Bermondsey Street is full of cosy cafes, bars and restaurants but at the same time remains a peaceful area. In addition, several London landmarks are within walking distance of this London Bridge hotel. Of course there is London Bridge itself, as well as Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Borough Market, The Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral. You could even walk to Westminster and Big Ben or take the Underground.
At check in you’ll be welcomed by the friendly staff. Any questions you have, they’ll be happy to answer. You may want to ask about the complimentary WiFi password or which restaurants they recommend nearby. Another popular question would be how to take the tube to your desired destination or which way to walk to Tower Bridge. The staff are happy to assist you, no matter what your purpose in London is. Furthermore, at check out I wasn’t leaving until the evening and I was able to leave my luggage at the hotel whilst I enjoyed the day in London.
24 Hour Complimentary Coffee
Adjacent to reception is the 24 hour hour complimentary coffee machine. In fact, at check in is a good time to treat yourself the first cup of coffee of your stay. There is also complimentary coffee available in your room.
Whichever room you choose, it will feature one of the comfiest beds you’ve ever slept in. I’m not exaggerating when I say the linens and bedding are excellent quality. The only negative to the comfortable bed experience is that at some point, you must get up!
As well as the comfortable bed experience, each room is equipped with a suite. The suite features a fully equipped kitchen which is perfect if you have any dietary requirements. It can be difficult finding good vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or restaurants for kids when you’re traveling. As you’re in control of the kitchen you can prepare food exactly as you want. It’s also a lot cheaper to eat in when visiting London.
The Deluxe suite features 2 double beds, 2 bathrooms as well as the suite and dining area. For this reason it’s perfect for families visiting London. If a pet is part of your family you’ll be glad to know that South Point Suites is a pet friendly London hotel. In addition, for larger groups it’s possible to book 2 adjoining suites, however I recommend you book these as far in advance as possible.
Of course the hotel features an elevator but you must take the stairs at least once for 3 reasons. The first reason to take the stairs is to take some Instagram worthy photos on them. Reason number 2 is to see the unique hotel design where the modern hotel meets with a historic wall. The third reason is when you get to the top of the stairs you have a panoramic view of London which features the Shard, the Gherkin and the Walkie Talkie.
Where Old Meets New
The corridors of South Point Suites are unique. On one side is a modern hotel, the other could be something from a Harry Potter movie. As London is a popular Harry Potter location, this hotel would make a good base for any Harry Potter fan.
A Hotel with a View
A common question tourists ask when visiting London is; where are the best London photography locations? The Shard is the tallest building in the UK, as a result it’s a popular building to photograph. From the 5th floor of the hotel is an excellent view of the Shard. This view becomes even more impressive during sunset when the sun reflects in the building.
24 Hour Fitness Center
The 24 hour fitness center has the equipment required to perform a good workout. In addition to the multi-use weights machine there are several free weights. Those who like to stretch will appreciate how spacious the gym is. If you prefer cardio there is a cross trainer as well as a running machine. Towels and water are provided, there’s also a set of weighing scales if you dare to weigh yourself.
24 Hour Laundry Room
The laundry room is conveniently located next door to the fitness center. As is takes around 45 – 90 minutes to do your laundry I always think it’s a good idea to do your laundry whilst working out. In fact, there are windows in between the 2 rooms therefore you can keep an eye on your laundry as you’re working out. Use of the laundry machines is complimentary, you only need to bring the detergent.
Every Tuesday from 7-8pm is guest social hour. During the social hour you can enjoy complimentary snacks as well as drinks. This is a good opportunity to chat with the staff about your stay in London. For the long term guests it’s a good time to perhaps meet other long term guests. When you plan your visit to London I recommend making Tuesday social night part of your itinerary!
Guest Living Room
Guests are welcome to relax in the living room at any time. The comfortable living room features a flat screen TV and the days newspaper. This is where you can enjoy the Tuesday social hour as well as the breakfast buffet. The complimentary coffee / tea machine is conveniently located adjacent to the guest living room.
It’s important to eat a full breakfast to give you the required energy for your day in London. The breakfast buffet features fresh fruit, fresh breads, sweet pastries, cold meats, hot meats as well as cereals. To drink, there is coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fruit juices and milk.
