  • Group of friends
    7.4

    i enjoyed the beds because they were comfey

  • Couple
    6.2

    i liked the location of the hotel, and the style and cleanliness of the room

    the hotel did not have any heating or hot water during our stay, we were not informed of this when we checked in and only became aware when we used the shower.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The location was ideal and the staff were fabulous

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The staff on the whole were efficient, polite and helpful and the restaurant staff were particularly pleasant. We liked the location and enjoyed evening strolls past Buckingham Palace and down The Mall.

    Rather dated look in the room, in need of a revamp. Although we paid extra for a deluxe room, we were unable to fully open the wardrobe doors because they were too close to the end of the bed. This also made moving around the room feel cramped. The beds were hard, which caused some discomfort.

  • Family with children
    4.2

    Hotel needs to be updated. Bathrooms are old. Staff isn't very friendly. They take forever to service the rooms and one of the day the room wasn't serviced. The location is good. The size of the rooms is good, but old.

  • Single

    Service-minded staff - I got to change rooms when I asked.

    Very dark rooms. First room was mouldy in the bathroom, but when I changed it got better. Rooms against the back look into a shaft with not much light.

  • Single
    7.4

    It's proximity to the underground and most of the major sites.

    Nothing really, only that it would be nice that the hotel offered complimentary internet in the lobby.

  • Single
    5.4

    At breakfast time the staff did not seat Asian people at good seats. Even if they came early, they were seated at dark side of the room, or in front of the doors of toilets. When keeping my luggage at the hotel, modestly but they required a tip.I am not sure it is ordinary or not.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Location was good. Room was quiet despite the location and proximity to station. Generally clean premises.

    The concierge I would not employ. He does nothing to assist your business. I asked about shopping centres and he pointed outside and said "out there". I asked about a taxi and he said go into the street, they come past regularly. I saw a male staff member tell a woman with four children and associated baggage when she asked for assistance, "I would help but it will cost you seventeen quid, you are better doing it yourself". The room had no fridge??? I think the staff need a reminder that we are the clients and without us, they dont have jobs. I would sack the concierge today. Over priced restaurant.

  • Single
    8.2

    The check-in was very quick and professional. I didn't stay in the hotel for long, having to get up early for the Royal Wedding, but everything was clean and well run.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful breakfast, nice and hot. Close to theatres and buses and underground.

    I like a firm bed but this one was a bit too hard, so didn't have a very comfortable night.

  • Single
    7.0

    location.

    air conditioning very noisy in my room.

  • Group of friends
    3.2

    Complete joke,I don't recommend this to anybody.

    In this hotel there is nothing to like!A total disaster!

  • Couple
    8.8

    I liked the big room and the great location just Near Victoria Station and also near the Victoria tub station.

    It's a bit old fashion, but clean and comfortable.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Central location. We were given a free up-grade which was excellent

    Have to say that the rooms were good, but the beds were hard
