Very comfortable
Perfect for a visit to the globe, the Tate or London generally. Very comfortable, easy reach to Southwark activities . Food and price from the restaurant were hmmm... Uninspiring, but founders arms a short distance away does good food with better pricing!

Great stay No where to park when checking out
Roderick, au5 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic hotel. Stay for 3 nights or more.
This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Room and views were perfect. Good size room. Restaurant perfect. Toiletries excellent. Vibe was laid back. Hotel was 20 minutes walk to theatres along Southbank and 20 minutes to the city and St Paul’s the other way and along the walk you get all the historical sites. Just fantastic. And by staying 3 nights it was no more expensive that a second rate 4 star hotel in the west end.

Couldn't find fault!
I can't actually fault my stay at the Mondrian. The staff were great, the room had everything I could have wanted (including an actual hairdryer, not one of those excuses for hairdryers stuck to a wall). My view was lovely and the bed was really comfortable. Plus the cocktails in the bar were amazing. Will definitely be staying again
Allison, au5 night trip
Good 6.0
Poor Security
Security Concerns were treated lightly. Poor English Language Skills adds to failures to address in hotel issue. "I had to personally escort an intruder off our hotel floor!" When hotel staff were advised, it was treated lightly & non-urgently. Disappointing, particularly considering Hotel location.
