Individual guest reviews

  • Fantastic location for theatres and great hotel. Lovely interior and correct service. The bed was very comfortable, breakfast was pretty good and all the employees were very friendly and helpful.

    The staff spoke very bad English for central London, the room had a safety box and a fairly big refrigerator was handy.

  • Central to all attractions and great hotel. The rooms were in the main building and refreshingly modern, staff were very pleasant and helpful, the bathroom was large and the water pressure was fantastic. The elevators were really quick and breakfast was good.

    Pulled the dirty curtains and no snacks available on either day.

  • A very good location and better rooms than the nearby Waldorf. Excellent position of the hotel and very beautiful historic building. Not bad on price for London and magnificent interior. Spotlessly clean and friendly staff, comfy bed.

    Slow service due to cocktail making, g tv operating instructions and access to wifi.

  • Public areas look luxurious and hotel is attractive. The staff is friendly and rooms are spotlessly clean, well decorated and have all the mod cons.

    Very poor for services, insufficient heating and sewage at toilet could be better. Breakfast could be cheaper.

  • Comfortable room great location in London and trafalgar Square is a 5 minute walk away too. The hotel is pretty good and the staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent air conditioning system.

    The bathroom was dirty in some areas, the shower did not work and the taps on our bath were very loose, the food was simple fare and not bad at all. The concierge was not very competent.

  • The very best location, leicester square and picadilly stations are within a 10 min walk as well, the whole atmosphere of the hotel is one of luxury. The lobby are staircase are elegant, staff are friendly and rooms are spacious, clean and tidy. The brasserie and the restaurant are not very inviting, covent Garden is perfect.

    Small cramped bar area and the duty manager kept telling me was because we were near the underground. Television was poor quality, the heat was cranked to about 75 F and the thermostat was broken, our simple Continental Breakfast came one hour late. The concierge was polite and helpful.
