H10 London Waterloo
What We Love
- The central location, just minutes from London's South Bank and the famous Borough Market
- Taking in the views from the eighth-floor Waterloo Sky Bar
- Summer in London - deckchairs in Hyde Park, swimming in lidos and daytime Pimm's in the capital's best beer gardens
What To Know
- Guest rooms are compact, starting at 200 square feet, but the floor-to-ceiling windows make the space seem larger
- There's an on-site beauty center with a gym, sauna, hydromassage shower and treatment rooms
- Free WiFi
Modern with floor-to-ceiling windows, a covetable location on Waterloo Road and an eighth-floor bar overlooking the capital, H10 London Waterloo has just the right character for a stylish London break. While City View rooms are compact, the large picture windows create an enhanced sense of space. Downstairs, the sophisticated Three O Two Restaurant presents an elaborate menu of
specialized Mediterranean and international dishes, while the lively, eight-floor Waterloo Sky Bar serves cocktails and a wide range of other refreshments. Alternatively, chill out with a coffee in the lobby’s Circus Bar where you’ll find comfy leather chairs and a relaxed atmosphere. Located a stroll from the atmospheric South Bank and the London Eye, you can take in many of the city’s major attractions on foot, or hop on the tube at one of several nearby underground stations. With a lively bar and inventive restaurant, this thoroughly 21st-century base is the ideal starting (and finishing) point for evenings spent drinking cocktails by the Thames.
In the Area
The hotel’s central location on Waterloo Road, just south of the Thames, places you perfectly for exploring the cultural delights of the South Bank, the fabulous shopping of Covent Garden and Oxford Street, and of course the magical West End theater land. You can walk to Leicester Square in roughly 30 minutes, or hop on the tube at Lambeth North, Waterloo or Southwark—all three stations are close by.
How to Get There
We booked H10 as a 'mystery hotel' through Superbreaks, although before we'd booked we'd figured out which one it was - it did mean though that the price was significantly lower.
The hotel is located very close to Waterloo station (and underground) and near to the Old Vic Theatre. It was a short walk to South Bank (London Eye) and easy to cross the river and into the City, or take the underground as we did.
The welcome was great - quick check in and a complementary drink of sparkling wine. The room was basic (even in the deluxe double), with laminate floors throughout which is slightly unusual in the UK. Air conditioning was appreciated though! We had no intentions of spending time in the room though, so suited us just fine.
The highlight was the breakfast - amazing! The variety was superb, from English through to continental (plus a few odd additions, such as chicken goujons and veg spring rolls). Set us up for a day of exploring on the Saturday.
The hotel located in walking distance from the metro stations Waterloo and Lambeth North and near to bus stops. A walk to the Westminster Bridge will take not more than 15 minutes.
The hotel has an excellent breakfast. The rooms are clean. The bed is comfortable. the stuff is very friendly.
A wonderful impression of the hotel!
Chose this hotel as I have stayed at other hotels in the area and was looking for something different.
Approx 10 mins walk from Waterloo station.
Modern design hotel our room was on the 11 floor with wall to ceiling windows offering fantastic views of London but the best art was the breakfast buffet one of the best I have experienced and I have stayed at a number of 5 star Joel’s throughout Europe. Very friendly and attentive staff overall a great experience will Check out their other hotels across Europe
We liked the hotel very much, friendly greeting with sparkling wine and a modern fresh feel to it.
The room had a great aspect with a large window the whole of one wall. Modern feel again with a few extras such as a coffee machine and digital clock.
The Sky bar was fantastic, but helped with a glorious day & we could quite easily have sat there all day.
Location was ok, 5 - 10 minute walk to Waterloo and slightly less to North Lambeth tube.
A couple of minor things though:
The maid barged in at 9am without knocking.
The bed felt like 2 singles zipped together and therefore had an annoying ridge in the middle.
The shower was poor.
However that said it was a lovely break, we will be back.
We initially chose H10 Waterloo because of its location and the fact that we knew something of the H10 group from trips to Spain. We now would not stay anywhere else when visiting London.
Bright modern hotel, friendly attentive staff and very clean.
