Great building and apartment but unbothered and noted staff on reception

Reviewed 4 august, 2022

Would have gotten 5 stars but reception staff on arrival seemed bored and uninterested in greetings us, was a bit off putting as a guest, no tour of apartment or shown how to use facilities such as heating and lighting which were unusual so a demo would have been appreciated. Building had great location and design, apartment had everything you need from wine glasses to washing tablets

Misleading promo photos and vile staff ruined my birthday

Reviewed 4 august, 2022

Firstly, be warned that this pretty much a hipster hostel so don't expect any frills! Minimalist in design, comfort and service. We booked a 2 night stay in a ‘Premium Studio’ for £300, so not cheap considering this isn't even a real hotel. We specifically chose a ‘Premium studio’ as the photos showed a separate dining area and were staying to celebrate my birthday, so wanted a bit more space, and a table and chairs to sit at to enjoy some conversation over birthday cake etc. However, the room we received (104), looked nothing like the promotional pictures they used on their own website and others like Booking.com. It a small, bog standard room - basically a studio not much floor space. It also did not feel very clean. Nothing 'premium' about it' - it didn't match up to what we had booked and the photos were highly misleading. When we queried this with the desk staff (thinking maybe there had been a simple mistake in assigning our room - it happens!), we were shocked by the very arrogant and aggressive response that ‘you could do cartwheels in the space at the end of the bed’. I see from other reviews that we aren't the only people who have noticed the incredibly rude reception staff! They then offered to show us a studio so we could 'see how much smaller they are', as if we should be grateful we hadn’t been given an even smaller room? Very patronising. There was no care, no understanding that we were celebrating an occasion and wanted to make it special, and no attempt to find an agreeable resolution (even though this was a Monday, so I HIGHLY doubt every single room in the building was booked!). We had tickets to see a show that night so didn't have time to traipse round looking at other rooms, and frankly, we felt really intimidated and uncomfortable at this point so wanted to get away from the staff! Besides which, their stinking attitude made it clear they had no intention of actually remedying our situation anyway. There was construction work happening at the building directly opposite, so all night we could see floodlights from that site shining through the very flimsy curtains. The following day a room temperature bottle of white wine was sent to us. Whilst I can appreciate the delayed gesture, I actually don’t drink. So I didn't need or want a cheap, warm bottle of wine - I just wanted the room we paid for and that they advertised. We checked out after the first night, even though we had paid for a second night. Unsurprisingly the staff did not ask or care why we were leaving early. I sent an email to their head office a few days later expressing my disappointment. I thought their Head Office might actually be sorry that a customer had a bad experience, and embarrassed by the appalling behaviour of their staff. How mistaken was I! They took A WEEK to reply and it was a very defensive response saying all the rooms have different layouts and it is impossible to have photos of them all online. OK, but how about putting representative pictures online then, not pictures of your BEST rooms and then having people arrive and being given something inferior? They refused to offer any kind of even partial refund, and instead said I could have a discount on a future stay. LOL! Why on Earth would I want to stay there again after the horrendous experience with their ignorant and aggressive staff? Native really need to send their entire staff through basic customer service training. I wouldn't stay here again if you paid me and needless to say I have advised all my friends and family to steer well clear of this place.

Would probably stay here again

There are so many positives about the Native Bankside, and overall, we were sad that we only stayed here for one night before joining friends at another hotel. The prices were quite reasonable for a 2 BR apartment, and it had a lot of amenities (a washer/dryer, full kitchenette, 3 bathrooms, great toiletries) and a nice location. The only negatives were that the woman at the front desk was somewhat offensive at check-in, insisting we hadn't paid (when it was a prepaid reservation through Rocketmiles so we can accumulate AAdvantage loyalty points and our reservation clearly stated that everything was prepaid and that the hotel should not charge us extra under any circumstances). She then came to our room, saying she couldn't call phone numbers in the US or Canada (provided on the reservation by the agency) to get their credit card, and then she called and said she 'couldn't understand Chinese or Japanese' - we tried these numbers and they were speaking...ENGLISH when we called. So other than this unpleasant staff lady at the checkin desk, everyone else was lovely and the hotel was great.

Great location, quirky design, lots of space and comfy rooms

Reviewed 30 july, 2022

The location is perfect, a stones throw from the river Thames and 5 mins to the Tate, Borough Market, St Paul’s cathedral and the southbank. There are different room types here so for clarity I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. The room was immaculately clean and had everything I needed for my week long stay. The bathroom was large and functional (even though the shower design is odd and floods the bathroom) and the kitchen area was fantastic - it really did feel like a home from home with a full fridge, washing machine, mini dishwasher and all kitchen supplies. The apartment was cosy yet spacious with great furnishings, comfy bed, 2 tv’s and lots of storage. There’s no daily housekeeping so keep that in mind and the Wi-Fi was good. Really would recommend this place as a new place to stay in that area. I can’t wait to stay again.

Very friendly, clean and well located

Reviewed 14 july, 2022

We had a great stay at Native Bankside. It is well located between two underground stations and only few steps from river Thames. The apartment is very, very clean and has everything needed and a bit more. Everyone was very friendly and reacted promptly to our wish for an extra blanket. We would love to come back.
