Fabulous apartment to stay in London
One of the best accommodation places we have stayed in London. Fabulous area in Bankside yet in a quiet area. The apartment was very well appointed with all facilities. The only issue was the light in the bathroom switches on everytime one goes in day and night. Would still strongly recommend.

Great hotel in a great location
Great stay in a great location. Our room was well appointed and used the space well. The pantry was awesome and was very helpful during our trip to go grab a cup of tea, snack or even a water bottle. Would highly recommend. We will be back.

Bankside a beauty
Native Bankside is relatively new so everything was essentially unused and pristine. The bedroom is spacious and the bed likewise, and comfortable. The kitchen area is small but adequate and there is a small dishwasher and clothes washer so we had everything we needed for the week. The bathroom is a good size especially the shower which can be a problem with some London accommodation. The first floor coommon area for basic food items is fantastic. We were able to have a decent breakfast to get us going every day. The location is great, just over the Thames near the Shakespeare globe theatre and Tate modern. There are a few different tube stations which are easily walked to. The great borough market is not far and you can walk through it each day on your way to the underground. London is a remarkable city and Native Bankside is a terrific location to base yourself. I would stay again without hesitation.

Was a great stay and couldn't recommend this hotel more.

Good for a business trip
Bed is so nice. Nespresso machine in common area. Filtered water that can be re filled. Although giving you two pre filled on arrival would be more useful. Lack of towels - please give more. Staff are nice and come and go as you please including guests.

Great location, great hotel
I honestly could not fault our stay at Native Bankside. Despite not living too far from London, we decided to stay overnight and use a weekend for a belated birthday adventure. The location was perfect for what we needed. The facilities were great - really loved the pantry. The staff were super friendly. I usually sleep badly, am pretty sure I slept all night without waking. Will definitely return. Thanks so much.

Very good 8.0
The hotel was in a great location. The room was a decent size but I thought the ‘kitchenette’ type area would be more separated. Wish there was more room cleaning service as our small garbage cans were filled in a short time. I understand that this is a different type of accommodation and less service is the reason for lower prices. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

Second stay, there will be more
This was our second stay at Native Bankside and was even better than the first. Nice convenient location, good facilities. Will definitely use again next time we go to London.

Great value, far from the subway
We stayed here on a vacation for four nights. The room was clean, and the bed was a dream. We had a 1BR room, so it was nice and spacious, and having the washer/dryer in the room was really helpful. Know that this is really more of an extended stay type of place so they don't have traditional hotel amenities (no daily housekeeping, no in-room safe, limited front desk amenities like umbrellas, cords/chargers, etc.). The folks at the front desk were very pleasant (particularly Aisha) and helped direct us to good food options, etc. Overall: + Nice location if there is good weather for walking to the business districts in London + More room than you'd get in a regular London hotel room, and much much better price + If you're staying for a week, or traveling between cities, the in-room washer/dryer is a big help (they supply the rooms with soap for this) - The soaps are all shared bottles, so if that weirds you out, you'll need to buy your own soap and lotion - The gym is microscopic. Maybe 30 sq ft. It would fit one person comfortably, two at most. It's a rower, a weight tower, and a total body weight machine. That's it. - The location is far from any subway stop (10-ish minutes).
