Bankside House

Bankside House offers a sociable and affordable place to stay. It has a great range of facilities like a lively bar, games room, TV lounge, launderette, and pay as you go internet terminals, all in one amazing location. Stay here on the South Bank of the River Thames, just behind the Tate Modern, and you'll find attractions like Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and The London Dungeon within easy reach. To top it all off a fresh continental or full English breakfast is included in the price!

As Bankside House offers single, twin, triple and quad rooms, you can stay here whether you’re travelling alone, with friends, or with family. You will find that most of the bedrooms here have ensuite shower rooms. However if money is tight you can opt for a single room which shares the bathroom with just one other room. Whatever room you choose, you will find a bed, desk and wardrobe inside, as well as really useful amenities like tea and coffee making equipment.


Bankside House is just behind the Tate Modern in Bankside, so this is the first place you should visit. You should also take the spectacular Thames-side South Bank walk, or stroll to attractions like Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Clink Prison Museum, Southwark Cathedral and the London Eye. Take a walk across one of the River Thames bridges and you’ll be able to explore places like the Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral. There’s plenty of trendy waterside restaurants and pubs nearby too.

Have stayed here previously and find the accommodation 1st class, my only reason for probably not choosing it again is late at night when arriving at the Tube Station loaded with baggage having to find Bankside House is for me as a lone female a bit iffy as going down dark streets and getting lost in more dark streets with very few people if any about and the group of lads I did see on this occasion were eyeing my luggage, I was lost and no one else was around so not good. With my husband with me I would not hesitate to use Bankside House but on my own arriving late at night, no

Massimo De Rubertis, Italian

Good London accommodation overall. For the future, I would suggest to provide more towels per person

Harry Pinkall, German

I guess it's not easy to find something in a reasonable price category in the centre of London. Bankside House offers this and for this price you can't complain. It's conveniently located a 5 min foot walk from Southwark Station. The room was simple but absolutely clean and had enough space, I had my own bathroom, the shower worked well and on top of that I had a nice view on The Shard from my window. Granted the queue in the corridors leading to the restaurant in the morning made me quickly change my breakfast plans and the beer selection in the bar wasn't top notch (not one single English ale) but again: Having to work in the city for a few days I would choose Bankside House again as accommodation at any time
