If so, whilst I don't know what it's like inside, it certainly doesn't present the most exciting face to the world - more like a boarding house look - probably pretty noisy too, being right next to the traffic lights.

It looks like its located above Borough Tube so may not be the quietest place on earth.
One hotel in the area that gets very good reviews (see for example tripadvisor.com) is the London Bridge Hotel and from a scan of the internet they seem to have rates in the next couple of months that are about the same as the London City Hotel quoted rates. The hotel is much more established than the City Hotel.
I should add that I have no connection to either hotel and have stayed at neither. good luck with where you stay and I hope you have an enjoyable trip.
