Very helpful staff also in a fantastic position for restaurants and shows.
Room was very quiet, despite overlooking Leicester Square. Fabulous location - very central Bed was too small - needed to be longer & wider!
For those that wish to make the most of going out in London during the evening, the hotel is the ideal location.Staff were very welcoming, at time a little too much.
The service and kind staff. 1. We booked a junior suite with "great view over London" and added to our booking request that this view was of the essence. The junior suite did not have such a view and the staff told us that no junior suite has such a view. Other rooms do. We feel mislead because an important part of the reason why we booked an expensive hotel/room was the view. 2. The hotel did not answer any of our 3 e-mails over a period of 2 months. 3. We called the hotel in order to double check our reservation. The reservation was not found and the hotel would call us back. They did not so we had to call them back.
excellent staff, very keen to please building work very noisy, breakfast expensive
Location was excellent Rooms were not up to usual Radisson standards, Rooms were very small, bed was too short for tall people.
The hotel is located right in the centre of London,ideal for theatres and shopping and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful, Rather expensive !
The courtesy of the staff was very good and one was made to feel nothing was a bother. The room was very comfortable. There was a fair amount of outside street noise in the room which took a night to get used to.
location the lifts were awful
The way I was welcomed and treated by the staff was superb. The breakfast wasn't particularly tasty (a bit cheap) and coffee was watery.
The Location There was a queue for breakfast. Also it was difficult to understand the English spoken by the staff.
The location was excellent. The room and bathroom were very nice.
Peaceful room and comfortable beds. Harp being played as we arrived. Good location. We were needing a relaxing night before travelling to Lyon through the French rail strikes and we awoke refreshed and content. Thanks! Decor a bit over ornate in places. (Ribbons over pictures etc). Not much in fridge except someones left over lunch. Quite a surprise!
The welcome and service of all the staff. Everyone especially the Hungarian gentleman bent over backwards to make an extra effort every single time I approached them. More likely they approached me quicker, to help with my pushchair and baby. They were polite and fantastic. Your real asset!! The towels had an awful smell (I have a sensitive nose). My room was no 847. When I enetered the room I could smell the pigeons in fact I looked at the window sill and sure enough there was pigeon poo - and the windows hadn't been cleaned in some time? There was no child quilt / blanket provided with the cot (and, although the cot was provided, I had to ask for this to be made). The staff could be taught level one english.
The room was fantastic with view over the Thames, Bed very good and quite and the Hotel is tucked out of the way but in easy access to all of London We did not get a warm welcome at reception, They tried to put us in 2 single beds when I had booked river view doudle. They would not take my word so I had to go back to the car to get our booking. It is also hard to get a cab from this hotel.
rooms spacious and very clean. staff very helpful and friendly. well situated for site seeing and close commuting facilities to explore the rest of london. no spa facilities that i was made aware of.
Good service Great location Breakfast buffet same everyday. Not much selection for 5 star luxury hotel. I stayed 13 nights and every morning same small selection of breakfast. There should be a lot more selection .
The rooms were comfortable and we had a lovely view of the river and the lighted ferris wheel. The staff were courteous, professional, and responsive. The location is great. The concierge was quite helpful. Breakfast was great but if we had not obtained a good price including breakfast, the a la carte cost of adding on breakfast would not have been worth it. The hotel is lovely and we hope to stay there again. For about half of our stay the hotel telephone system was not working. The sink in one of our rooms was quite high and uncomfortable for our elder and short relative.
Location is perfect for the theater district. Staff is very friendly and accommodating indeed. Hotel is very elegant, a bit formal. Could be intimidating for a tourist from the US west. Got a good room rate, but drinks, tea, and breakfast were as expensive as you'd expect from a 5 star central London hotel. We ended up changing our room twice -- the first time at the suggestion of the bellman, because it didn't have any view. The second room had a view but was way smaller than the other, and had no bath tub. We were moved a third time at our request and got a wonderful room (but without a river view). The staff made both moves very easy indeed.
good location, good service
Everyone is polite and not overbearing. The room although we felt is was quite small it was peaceful and very clean. The only point was a dirty wet cloth left on the wardrobe shelve which was a little unpleasant,
It would be a good 4 star hotel. good heating and hot showers. food was barely edible, always stale. reception service is appalling. In desperate need of refurbishment, old TVs, design. It was just a bed and a bathroom, not a 5 star hotel.
Overall stay was very comfortable except there was a very loud wedding party on Saturday night that didn't end till past 1:00am, but the hotel gave me a very generous discount for that night. Would also have liked more overhead lighting because the atmosphere in the room was rather dim!
Very out dated in need of refurb. no AC too hot room service food very
Very close to Covent Garden and Oxford Street The room did not have air conditioning and was like an oven. We had to keep the small fan provided in the room going all night.
Very central to all our needs.
Location of hotel was great. Oxford Street, Restaurants,Theatres and Tube station, all within 5 minute walk. Hotel very comfortable. Staff very helpful.
Cozy, comfortable, great value for money. Very attentive and polite personnel. Strategic location
Spacious and comfortable. Quiet; good breakfast.
Location, Clean First room was verry small then we change the secon room and was ok. I try to use your business center facility but the computer and printer does't work properly. I spend 40 min for internet checkin for flight.
practical for my reason visiting London. have stayed a umber of times. Lighting in the bedroom. No bedside lights. Overhead light too strong. Room was cold
The location and the cleanliness are factors which lead me to book, in supplement I experienced an extraordinary friendly staff. Furthermore I adore the hotel's mixture of traditional and new barock style. It was tropically hot in our room. There is no air-condition in this hotel. The window was to small to let efficiently enough fresh air into the room (temperature outside like 17°). They provided a fan, but I'm a type of person who catches a cold when I'm sleeping with a fan directed at me. Due to this I had remarkable troubles to get to sleep.
The staff were brilliant Needs Air Con
Nice blend of modern facilities ina traditional building. Quiet, comfortable room and everything just a cut above hotels at a similar price in the area.
Staff is very very kind, cleaning is not the best inside the whole structure, but inside our room is basically good. Some very little I repeat very little details that make the difference for this very high level hotel: the holder for hygenic paper was broken, the hairdryer tubular was rapaired with insulating tape and for this reason it was a little sticky, the bath tub had very little splinterings on edge, the window was stopped with a piece of folded paper and in conclusion the tv controller had not the cover for the batteries and it was replaced with a certainly sticky coloured tape .
The upgrade to a superb room on the top floor - couldn't fault it unless that was the deluxe double that had been originally booked. Excellent hotel and well placed for business meetings in the City.
Great location for shopping and the theatres and most of the main sites to see. Also had a great breakfast. Size of the room could have been larger for the price paid.
The TV Breakfast issues No knowlege of local area Language barriers
We liked the modern decor. Our room was facing the road and was extremly noisy.
Facilities and location
Excellent location, nicely renovated, modern hotel We stayed at the end of November and it was exceptionally cold in London. The hotel room was cold and the heater made terrible noise, but had to be on all the time. No heating in the otherwise beautiful bathroom.
The size of the room - very spacious Not applicable
I found the location perfect for sightseeing. The room was very nice and as a venue is was very good also. Food was excellent:-) I was a shame I wasn't able to access the internet. The solution you have chosen at the hotel did not work for me as my company (banking) apparently have restrictions which make it impossible to lock on to a web browser before the internet access is given...
Central position for Theatres etc
Wonderful location. No complaints. Would stay again or recommend to others.
The greeting on reception The restaurant facility, the food was excellent the service was very badly organised
Hotel position excellent Room reasonably quiet, comfortable bed Ordered newspaper not delivered. No verbal explanation given after fire alarm evacuation at 06.00. Poor understanding of English shown by some reception staff.
Fantasic offer of an upgrade to a junior suite for just £35 incl bottle of wine and a great room with lots of extra space. Made the stay even more enjoyable. Superb location, friendly staff 10/10 :)
Central location, room size.
The location is excellent, being right above Charring Cross Station and within walking distance to all the West End theatres. The hotel itself is very nice and our room was great. Breakfast was also nice, with gluten-free bread offered to my girlfriend. Upon arrival at 1.45 pm we were offered an upgrade to a junior suite for an extra 50 pounds. We accepted but wanted to check in straight away as we had a theatre show at 3.30 pm. Reception said the room would be ready in 10 mins. We finally got into the room at 2.45 - unacceptable! The bottle of wine that was offered upon the upgrade was also not delivered until later I asked about it. Given we were in a hurry to get ready and get to the show I didn't have time to make a big deal of it. When asked we were given a late checkout, 1pm instead of 12, which was something I guess. But I definitely got the impression the reception staff did not care at all about the customer and were merely chasing extra dollars from the customer.
the good location and the cleanliness and comfort of the room
Clean, recently refurbished. Great location for the west end Rooms are quite small (no difference to most London Hotels)
The staff are friendly helpful and show a wide variation of knowledge of the city hotel is clean and the candles in the evening are a nice touch Xmas tree lovely.
The hotel had just the perfect location for us, situated as it was within a 10-minute walk of Leicester Square, Soho, Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, St Martins-in-the-Field, Covent Garden, The Strand, and so much more. Our room was on the 3rd floor, directly above the entrance to Charing Cross Station and practically overlooking Trafalgar Square. Amazingly, we could hardly ever hear a sound from outside! The windows had great soundproofing, I guess. The only sounds that appeared to get through were when the street musicians played amplified guitars at night, and they seemed to stop at a decent hour so it wasn't all that disruptive. Staff were always friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable with all modern conveniences including a soothing rainwater shower with plenty of hot water. The complimentary minibar was a nice surprise, too.
The staff were very polite and friendly and the candles and decorations around the hotel were beautiful giving it a romantic atmosphere. The bed and room were very comfortable. Our room was next to a side street with trucks arriving very early with deliveries and it was noisy! And our phone rang every 30 minutes from around 8am (we were too tired to figure out why!) And the attendant walked into our room at around 9am even though we had locked the door and put the latch on.
Excellent location Waiting to check in
it was central for my needs, and all staff were very helpful on all points. problems getting a six seater taxi service.
Service, location, history and character Small 'standard' rooms, only just large enough for a couple with minimal luggage.
easy access to londons attractions
The Location. All theatres in walking distance, lots of restaurants and Soho shops. Close to underground. The rooms are really small (I am British). Minimal mini bar and hopeless main bar. Remote control did not work, tissue box empty. Dissapointing room service menu. So although it looked the part, I was very dissapointed, not value for money
Good restaurant, nice building, clean. No hot water, only luke water. When problems ocurred during extending my stay, different solutions were promised by different persons, no promises were kept though.
A very clean and luxurious designer hotel. Great food. Very helpful and pleasant staff. The room was a little cramped. Desk was too big for the room. Feel the room could be bigger for a Superior room.
Good clean hotel in central London Only the check in was bad. My colleague arrived ahead of me only to find he could not check in as the reservation was not in the system. The reservation and pin number that was on the e-ticket was not accepptable and only the original print was enough to convince the front desk that we had a reservation. It was only as a secondary measure that I brought this with me as your system led me to believe that the booking number and pin was sufficient. My colleauge had to wait an hour for me to arrive and this was at 11pm when we had a busy day both behind and ahead of us. For the above reason I will not use this service again. It's simply not acceptable.
The helpful from the staff who able to allocate a room for my very early check-in. A room is assigned which is a disable room. However, this is not the same expectation when I book a 'Superior Double Room'. I have not asked for a change as I have a very busy schedule during my stay in London.
Not much just a city hotel
Perfect location because of walking distance to major shoppping streets and Covent Garden/Leicester Square. Good concierge services. Housekeeping started cleaning round 9 am, the noise from the hall and nearby rooms woke me up every morning. Obviously paying for location and not room size. Air-conditioning makes considerable noise.
Location superb! The hotel is tired and old. My room was small, tatty and very cold (wind blowing in through the old wood framed windows). I won't stay here again.
Great Location with helpful staff breakfast not included, elevator system was a problem and bathroom wasn´t very clear.
location was great....charming hotel...and very comfortable room
The Hotel staff we very friendly and helpful. I found the price of the Hotel fair considering the style and location. Howvever I feel the Hotel could benefit from being updated. Also i found the gym facilities disappointing.
Loved the location. Room was small but very comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly Quire pricey but then it is London
great city centre location friendly staff lovely room
Just the most fantastic central position - easy to walk Covent Garden, Piccadilly, Regent St room was starting to look a bit tired furnishings wisw
Hotel location is key for seeing all theatre; either side of the Thames.
Great staff. Superb location. Room upgrade. Cosy bar. Staff turnover appears low, nice to see some of the same faces. Afternoon tea reliable. Tea was always hot. On line check in sketchy. A/c noisy Tea bags missing in room Turn down service was intermittent
Location was excellent, it is about 30 footsteps from the hotel till the one of theatres. view from the window was poor, smell in the room.
Polite and helpful staff and location close to where I was going out I could not at first work the lift nor put the lights on in my room because I did not know I had to put my room card in the slot. The sign in the lift is not noticeable enogh and n arrival I went up and down a few times before giving up and using the stairs. Next time I wil know.
Central Posiition to visit London Very small Bedroom
Location is excellent - very convenient for Covent Garden and transport links. Most of our destinations were within a 10 minute walk. Our room was on the inner courtyard so quiet and peaceful. We had been concerned that the bathroom might prove a problem ( from reading earlier reviews) but although the door is frosted glass, it was not possible to view the occupant from the bed. We enjoyed a full breakfast on both mornings without any delay in service. All colleagues were keen to ensure that every detail ran smoothly. We did n't expect a bath in the bathroom( only a shower) so were delighted at the opportunity for a soak before our evening out. The umbrella came in handy for the unexpected shower on the first night out. We used the spa on the first evening- a little disappointed at the state of decoration. Nearly slipped on the floor when I stepped of the matting. Just to clarify that the spa is run by another company.
restaurant - quality of food and service outstanding . Staff throughout hotel attentive and helpful .
Excellent location just off the Strand. Friendly and helpful staff, and great breakfast included in my stay. Rooms are a little small. Also not much of an open lounge area for waiting around or hanging out, but tight space is to be expected for the location.
The comfort was a feature with a very unusual but welcoming room design. The staff were all helpful and friendly
helpfulness of staff
it is a beautiful hotel with excellent room facilities. there was a power cut within the hotel there was not an acceptable contingency plan to overcome the problems that were encounted, hence the hotel rating.
We traveled in from Heathrow and the hotel was close to the underground stop. Easy walking distance to all major landmarks. Staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast in the morning was awesome. the 110 outlet in our room had a plug broken into it making it unusable.
lack of attention to detail.
Friendly, efficient and professional staff! A very minor point. The music in the restaurant at breakfast was rather funereal and repetetive.
No problems at all !!!!.
Excellent location, friendly staff, good size of the room. Breakfast was very good. Room orientation towards the internal court, the view from the window was completely disturbed by the presence of metallic plate.
Perfect location for shopping and theater in London. Excellent breakfast in a beautiful ballroom. Nice champagne bar for a drink before dinner. Some rooms are very small and hsave no heating in the bathroom.
Good location, good facilities, helpful and polite staff One of the lifts out of order on arrival caused a bit of a problem and about a 15 minute wait. To be fair it was fixed by the next day.
Perfect location for us. Minimum fuss. Good room and bathroom with everything we needed. The card check-in system and the lift operated by card - not obvious which way to do it and everyone we met felt the same. Needs rethinking
Excellent location, polite, helpful staff, well appointed rooms.
Excellent location - ideal for tourist areas and located very close to Waterloo.
Location. There is nothing to say about the hotel, is normal 4* hotel, nothing to complain but nothing to admire. Nice bar. I was staying alone in double room, for one it was ok. for two would be definately small.
Location is excellent, v close to Charing Cross and Embankment underground stations and walking distance to Leicester Square and Covent Garden. Bathroom small-ish and towels were old but functional. Shower was reasonably strong and water was hot.
The fact that the staff were friendly and that the hotel was a reasonable price Only that we were unable to have a drink brought to our room after 11pm even though we asked about this previously and were told it was a 24hr service.
Location . Dislike. Booked non smoking big room with kitchen.Was given smoking room ( as if they just had held a smoking party).Eventually offered a non smoking room but much smaller and w/o kitchen . No reduction in rate ! This is truly a quarters but not hotel !
Decent sized rooms for London. Clean and well run. Very close to Embankment tube station. Slightly touristy part of town.
Quality comfortable accomodation in central london at a fair price. The relationship between Club Quarters,The Grand and The Northumberland was a little confusing.
I am a Global Member; this is the reason I continue to stay at this gorgeous hotel in a city full of gorgeous hotels.
Location, Design hotel Food is always getting less and less ( before there was steak, there was asian boxes ... ).
The staff were A1 and very helpful and the manager Jose was very proffesional Maybe a little too dark in the lift and l could not see the buttons to push
Unable to open windows and air conditioning is noisy and suffocating.
the restaurant concept, staff and service. breakfast - not clear information about the prices and poor value for money regarding breakfast. the films in the elevator - freeky.
A different experience. The staff greeted me by my first name which I like a lot. Interior design is cool, I loved candles in the bathroom. Couldn't log on to the Internet with my iPad although I was charged the Internet service - which was advertised as free upon booking :-(
Good location, friendly staff, stylish rooms
A very modern hotel in a fantastic central location. The room was small but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. No coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Refused entry to the Light Bar because we hadn't booked - since when did you have to book to have a drink in a bar? This also meant we couldn't actually use the vouchers for the complimentary cocktails!
Service and the personal very nice food very good Aurel & Tabita Musca Will be nice that in price of the hotel to be include free breakfast
Great location. Nice hotel. Concierge always has solid recommendations. Good service. Love the room. Everything is modern with a lot of little touches. USB phone charger at the bed, Bluetooth for your music. I've been here 3 or 4 times and will go back! Currently remodeling. Shower leaked ....
Design, city center location and friendly professional staff Internet connection ( slow ), airco on rooms did not work well
This hotel is in the best location for theater, restaurants, shopping and art. We were two couples and had the best time. Everything was perfect
Service was excellent, especially Francesco who made us welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. The hotel was extremely clean and very close to the metro station and Trafalgar Square Room was on the small side.
Staff was really friendly and ready to help.
Everything was perfect
I liked the location, and the clean, bright room that had good bathroom space and a reasonable work surface. Similarly priced rooms in London are often very cramped and/or quite worn down. a really nice (and necessary, in our case) feature of the room is the sliding solid wood shutters that completely seal off outside light. This was my third or fourth stay at the sph. The weatherstripping around the windows was completely shot and ineffective, so if we had the shutters open, a powerful draft whipped through the room. There was a cold snap in London at the time, so the result was that we couldn't open the shutters and curtains to enjoy daylight. Also, as our room was over The Strand, it was very noisy at night. However, I would definitely stay again
the hotel is so close to the theatres on the Strand and Covent Garden, it makes it so convenient. There was nothing I didn't like but thought the £8 charge for an ice bucket from room service was a bit steep!
The room was just big enough and was practical. The bathroom was excellent. TV was provided. I would like to be able to make more than 2 cups of tea or coffee! I take sugar and that was in limited supply.
Very central location, good value for money
This is the best location in London, steps from Covent Garden, an easy walk across the Waterloo Bridge, convenient to theaters. Thanks to recent renovations, rooms are contemporary and comfortable; staff is friendly and helpful. I have been staying here off and on for more than 25 years! The food continues to be marginal at best, and not a good value for the money. Fortunately, there are many good and reasonably-priced restaurants nearby.
location was excellent The room should be renewed as soon as possible. They sold the London of map. It should be free of charge.
Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice clean rooms.
Terrific location. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. cool, funky vibe. small room (which I liked) The cool location also meant that it was occasionally hard to sleep it night with the noise from the busy street
Location Location Location. Being in the center of town, I had the ability to stop off at Hotel Z to drop off bags, freshen up, take a break before moving on to next neighborhood on my itinerary. Tube stop directly to Heathrow a couple of blocks away made arriving and departing soooo easy. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Room was modern, quiet and clean. DEFINITELY plan on staying again. While I knew I had booked the smallest room, and was happy with it overall, the in ability to open a window for fresh air was a little frustrating. Issues with the a/c were promptly addressed, although an open window would of been a better solution. It was only because my stay was for 5 nights that this bothered me. Next visit I'll book a larger room with an open window. :-)
The location was perfect for us. We were taking a weekend break to go to the theatre and shopping. We could walk out of the hotel straight onto the street surrounded by everything we wanted. We were amazed by the excellent use of space within the hotel. It was very compact but well thought through and comfortable. The staff were very polite and helpful. The complimentary wine and cheese was a big plus for us too. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants location in the West End. A little noisy from the street at night but didn't matter too much as it was a leisure break and not business.
The best part of the hotel was it's location. It is located in a great part of London, a very busy part of London. The staff was pretty nice and there were always around to help. Well the worst part of the place was probably the size of the room and the bed. I knew my room would be tiny but for the price I paid it was crazy. The room could barely fit your luggage and yourself. A constant maneuvering around everything. The bed was the worst bed I have ever slept in. Want to know what it is like to sleep on a rock or the ground? Well come to this hotel to find out. This bed was so stiff I would wake up every morning in some sort of back pain. It was ridiculous that this is possible in a modern hotel. It's a budget hotel but seriously just get a slightly softer bed as this was ludicrous.
