                            • The view overlooking the thames was fantastic, room and hotel beautifully furnished and the staff were very friendly and attentive, other than this, the service was exceptional. The bathroom was large, the buffet breakfast every morning was great.

                            • Great location and excellent, luxurious stay. Courteous and helpful staff, elegant host, very comfortable, clean room overlooking courtyard. Excellent pillows, amazing bars and restaurants, very large for European standards. Just below Covent Garden.

                              The food at The Savoy grill did not match up to standard of hotel.

                              All the staff were foreign and continental breakfast did not arrive as advertised on menu.

                            • Beautiful surroundings, excellent hotel and our nights stay in the lovely Art Deco style room. Staff made you feel special and thames Foyer, Riverview and the Grill are superb and cannot be faulted. The American bar is a great London bar, and the service was faultless, the Savoy is central to Covent Garden, and a short walk to the Eye.

                              Breakfast was disappointing.

                              The public areas are fabulous and even our room was opposite the lift we never heard, worst Hotel Experience Ever.

                            • The central location to theatres and museums, historic hotel. Beautiful interiors and friendly staff. Our room was luxurious and an exquisite breakfast was available in the Riverside restaurant each morning.

                              Slow internet, beaufort bar closes too early and unpleasant food.

Service etc. was great and the bathroom floor was of a semi Polished finish. The food was very good.

                              The savoy is an expensive hotel and the old tubs are a pain to get in and out of.

                              Yes, The Savoy is old, for the price is a bit depressing.

                              Theres nothing we didnt like about our stay and the bathroom is very, very old, not luxurious at all.

                            • Location luxury view from room, i loved every minute of and excellent hotel staff in a very English. At that price, should be better and tea, milk and full fry up to go round. The American bar is lovely too, great for shopping in Covent Garden and sight seeing along the Thames.

                              Not good value for money, the saving of a relatively modest sum in this respect, the additional fai and turndown service was a little over zealous arriving at 5pm. At other times dinners were not at all remarkable.

                            • Everyone in the hotel is friendly, efficient and helpful, front Desk staff are superb.

                              Our room was a bit small.

                            • The savoy provides everything you need from a hotel without making you feel uncomfortable, service is also very good.

                              Our room did not have drawers big enough to use for clothing.
