                          Individual guest reviews

                          • Good location and the great atmosphere. Worth the money and luxurious lobby. Staff very attentive and polite, excellent concierge, the room was lovely and the bathroom huge. Rivoli bar was superb.

                            Old style grandhotels, service careless, pointing fingers at costumers not elegant and broken bedroom fitments. Breakfast very mediocre for such exorbitant price.

                          • The location is perfect for shopping and the shows, staff very attentive and pleasant and the Hotel interiors are very special. Service is good and rooms are luxuriosly furnished and large for central London. The tea is the best in britain.

                            After our stay we waited again for luggage to be brought to front for departure, internet was very slow.

                          • Location cannot be better, the Ritz London is very beautiful and luxurious throughout, staff not always as attentive as you would expect either. Beds are superbly comfortable and the pillows the best i have ever slept on, absolutely impeccable service in Palm Court as well as in the restaurant.

                            Hotel is a bit tired looking in places and the internet costs 26 pounds per day and the signal is very weak in my room. Dinner dance restricted space for dancing.

                          • The location is excellent, the atmosphere since you go inside this hotel is amazing and all the front of house staff can chat confidently. Service cannot be beaten and the concierges are also helpful and friendly. The bed is really good and the afternoon tea is nice too.

                            The view from room 124 was the worst imaginable, the council digging up the road outside all night meant little sleep was possible and the windows looked out on top of six air conditioner extractor fans were noisy all night. Drinks were very expensive as was breakfast.

                          • The location is very convenient for transportation, the friendly staff made us feel very welcome and the rooms are of course superb, flawlessly clean and lavishly elegant. The ritz restaurant is nice for dinner.

                          • Great location, excellent hotel and the staff were helpful , friendly well informed. The room was comfortable and the only meal we ate there was breakfast the next morning and was good.

                            Bathroom looks a little tierd.
