London Central Bank
8 / 10 0
South of Bank Junction, one street behind St Stephen’s Walbrook, with easy Thameslink and tube access from Cannon Street Station.
Style & character
5 / 10 0
Character is not what you expect at this price: paint and soft furnishings are bland and utilitarian but it’s clean, safe and friendly.
Service & facilities
6 / 10 0
24-hour reception but otherwise you’re largely on your own.
For the money, these rooms are very good: they are largeish, generally light, beds are comfortable and coverings warm, though they don’t look very comforting. Bathrooms are ship’s cabin style, economical on space but with excellent showers, towels and soap.

Food & drink
They don’t pretend to provide food, so it’s not really fair to judge, but you can ring down to order panini and muffins supplied by The Phat Pasty for £3 and a breakfast bag – cereal, milk, croissant – costs £4.50. It’s right opposite The Don wine bar (open weekdays).
Access for guests with disabilities?
Seven accessible bedrooms on four floors, with wheelchair friendly showers, lower furniture and vibrating pillows on request. All signs are in braille and there is an induction loop system for the deaf.
