very clean, well positioned ,clearly very new and up to the minute in terms of facilities Staff at desk not able to deal with simple requests had to be dealt with through guest services and initially would not even dial the appropriate extension for us.
Room were lovely Staff efficient and friendly Lovely hotel Rooms were far too hot at night Breakfast area - Shown to a table that was not laid up but dirty then had to stand and wait until waitress cleared cleaned and re-laid. Bits of food below by our feet. Breakfast buffet lovely except cooked breakfast, dissappointing in lack of choice of egg and most food only warm, scrambled eggs cold.
It was just average to us. Nothing impressive. It was again, fine. Nothing terrible either.
The room was excellent and very comfortable. However I found the pillows were too soft - apart from that I like everything else about the room. Breakfast was not included in the room price and I thought the breakfast was overpriced. We eat breakfast close by on the Southbank rather than at the hotel and found it to be much cheaper. Also the quality of where we ate our breakfast was very good.
locations Cleanliness of my room
Rooms were superb. Service was excellent.
The studio room was superb and also the view from the room. The location is perfect. The staff at check in. There was litter in the room.
Very helpful staff.Very clean. Perfect location for quick wkend trip.
New, well appointed, comfortable, convenient. Price of a room almost doubled in less than a month. Would only stay there again at the price I paid in May; 125gbp vs 225gbp a night.
The staff were extra friendly. The spa is closed on weekends.
Comfortable bed, light excluding curtains, very useful small kitchen area,good bathroom. Staff courteous. Awful view from bedroom window, sitting area of room very dark. Not enough staff on reception for booking in felt rather like a queue waiting for tickets. Housekeeping took 30 mins to respond to request .
Excellent location friendly staff
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.
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.
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
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
Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice clean rooms.
location was excellent The room should be renewed as soon as possible. They sold the London of map. It should be free of charge.
Very central location, good value for money
The room was lovely - everything you needed and amazing toiletries. The location of the hotel was ideal, a short walk from Southwark or you could walk straight out onto the Southbank. The staff were all delightful and extremely helpful. I'd definitely stay here again.
Reception staff were really good, consierge was equally as good. Nice welcome, and fire in lobby. A lady in the restaurant for breakfast was very good, I think her name was Pam. Breakfast was really not great, firstly the lady who seated us, asked if we wanted coffee and toast, then none arrived had to ask again for it, same with ordering some porridge it came 15 minutes later, but was like gruel, quite surprised that a 5 star hotel kitchen can't make porridge. Overall a little bit too structured and formal, but lacked professionalism in the restaurant.
The location was excellent. The room and bathroom were very nice.
good location, good service
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 service was outstanding and good position in the city. I recommend this hotel to everybody.
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.
Comfortable room, so close to all the attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful.The electric curtains were a 11 yr olds idea of luxury!
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,
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!
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.
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.
Spectacular in every way Not being able to stay longer
What's not to like! Everything was outstanding! The hotel staff couldn't be more friendly, anything you needed they got it for you! Just wish it wasn't so pricey otherwise we would go more often!
despite being over motor court, room was very quiet, everything was well designed, staff was extremely helpful, bathroom was tremendous, restaurant was great. Very little (if anything) to actually complain about. Top-notch. gym facilities were modest as was pool, but not a terribly big deal as most hotel gyms have a limited offer.
very luxurious hotel in a good location of London. definately would go back to the hotel at my next visit. not much..
The Savoy stay was one of the most exceptional stays that I have had -- extraordinary from the moment the taxi door opened. I needed a rest and wanted to visit London, and the Savoy was worth every penny. Location is perfect. Food and service were outstanding -- didn't feel the need to leave for an outside restaurant. Breakfast, high tea and dinners were delicious. High Tea was conceivably the best I have every experienced. Room was like a cocoon, and their baths are legendary. Will be back soon for another break. I was disappointed that the spa and pool were closed for renovation.
close to all the things London has to offer spa pool and surrounds should be renovated
comfortable beds. big spacious rooms. clean bathroom. newly decorated. noisy heater/air con. why can't there just be radiators?
The location, comfort and ambience were second to none. The restaurant and bar staff do not appear to be trained at all - service was extremely poor and not in keeping wwith a 5 star hotel
The staff was great. Rooms were spacious. Luxurious. Location was amazing. I loved it.
All the staff were extremely polite and helpful. The room was generous in size, certainly for London.
I loved the location of the hotel!! We didn't realize that our view would be Big Ben, House of Parliment, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye. We were central to many of the attractions which made planning convienent (we only had to walk 5 mins for all of the above attractions and 10 mins for Buckingham Palace). We were also within walking distance to the tube, which was also easy to use:) I also loved the Concierge and Reception. They were all knowledgeable and helpful in assistancing us if needed. I was disappointed that the Spa and pool were not up to Marriot standards. I have stayed at several and when there was 'down time' I could count on being able to entertain the children in the pool area. The pool was small and the children were constantly in the way of those doing laps. Also, I did not see the whirlpool, even though it was listed as having one. Finally, the breakfast was great but expensive (20 pounds) considering that just around the corner in the same building, another hotel had the same breakfast for 7 pounds.
Staff was polite, restaurant staff excellent, the room was confortable and quiet. The room given on the first night was not corresponding to the family room booked on your site. Booking com was blaimed by the Hotel for this situation. We were moved to a more appropriate room for the next night. Checking at the reception is a slow process and a lot of time was lost in sorting out the confusion about the room
Super hotel. Very pleasant staff. Like an oase in middel of busy city. Would like frigde in family rooms. Relaxed atmosphere. Helpful. Beautiful hotel, boys think it is oldfashioned, but I find that charming.
It was very peacefull great place to relax no
Helpfull stuff, good location, nice views, proximity to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and London Eye, comfortable beds. The hotel is very tired and old fashioned, a little gloomy, small rooms, endless corridors, we had to walk to our room from the elevator like 400 meters.
I loved the room and the facilities, the food and service was excellent and I would stay at the hotel again. The staff especially were very friendly and helpful.
It's location, being within short walking distance of most of the interesting places in London Arriving by car stopping at a bus stop in front of the hotel to get the luggage out of the car. The attendants were very prompt though.
great staff and great breakfast, no buffet
Attention of staff is the best I have experienced in London. Parking of car. Ambience. Decor. Only the price!!
Clean room, stylish lounge, excellent bathroom suite Felt a little expensive as did not include breakfast
Staff were very helpful and the hotel was certainly central - paid for a mid range room which was really quite small with no view would hate to see the standard size Room size
All of the staff were alert and looking for an opportunity to help. Excellent service.
Didn't like much but the staff are very friendly Rooms are very small
The situation of the restaraunt above the bar made it a very noisy experience
Everything was great, a bit expensive but that's central London. Nice Bar and pool. There was a cold draft coming from the old windows and the heat did not really heat the room. However, when we brought this to the attention of staff they came up within 5 minutes with an electric heater, and the next day called to make sure everything was OK. Breakfast could be included in the high cost of the room.
the quality of the beds I would prefer a buffet breakfast
Good sized suite. Usable fridge space. Modern decor. Good security. Restaurant staff nice. Small reception area makes it feel cramped and busy. No pool. Didn't get a room with a good view.
Convenient and good value Air conditioning not working properly
Excellent location, spacious rooms, very good bathroom. Although the staff were quite good, there were some times when we had to ask for some basic services more than 10 times. We stayed for a week, first 3 days room service was good, after that room attendant didn't even bother to swipe the floor-the layers of dust were amazing.
convenient location, clean and smart room - good internet connectivity, comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff the room was too hot...and unable to open window or reduce temperature
I liked the apartment style of our room and the ease of registering. The room was very well designed with a contemporary feel to it and the views were spine tingling! I would definitely choose this hotel again.
We stayed in the executive studio and we had everything we needed. Lovely modern design - very comfortable. Great bathroom. Close to Waterloo Station. Very friendly reception staff.
I didn't stay, my boss did and they upgraded him even though he was only staying one night! Location is very good and staff friendly
Good quality of decor and fittings in rooms and public places. Excellent position for enjoying central London.
very good location in central London Lengthy wait for lifts
Excellent location and helpful staff Slightly disappointed with the standard of the bed for a quality hotel
The hotel was superb! Clean, stylish, friendly and helpful staff. Only one thing - the room was hot and airless at night.
Decent sized rooms for London. Clean and well run. Very close to Embankment tube station. Slightly touristy part of town.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 !
Excellent location, polite, helpful staff, well appointed rooms.
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.
Excellent location - ideal for tourist areas and located very close to Waterloo.
Quality comfortable accomodation in central london at a fair price. The relationship between Club Quarters,The Grand and The Northumberland was a little confusing.
Location is excellent. Very clean with a kitchenette with microwave, stove, dishwasher, electric kettle. Very nice to be able to have breakfast and not have to change clothes. Very green with a toilet tank that is topped by a little sink where u wash your hands and it automatically fills the toilet tank; ingenious!! Little staffs also a a bit dark in the rooms but that's because they use energy saver lights do OK with me.
The location is perfect to see many sights and close to the underground. There are NO American Outlets anywhere, and I understand that yes I am in the UK and they don't have the same voltage as in the States, but EVERY hotel I’ve ever stayed at in Europe has had at least ONE American Outlet. The outlets are no where near mirrors. So even if you packed an outlet converter, you wouldn't be able to see yourself do your hair. CFL lighting instead of LED, which take a long time to warm up and are not as bright. Instead of having One Strong WIFI Network, they had over a dozen WEAK Ones. You had to constantly re-connet to Wifi because the signal would go out. We spent majority of the time reconnecting between 3 different Citadines Wifis. The bathtub/shower is so high off the ground, you have to physically climb into it, and careful not to fall out. I almost fell out completely one, but thankfully my boyfriend caught me in time. Our in room fridge creaked and moaned all hours of the night, and soon became part of our nightly sleep, Given the Opportunity, I would NOT stay here again.
The location was perfect and many of the tourist sights were within walking distance so we saved quite a bit on travel and travel fares.On a weekend visit you do not spend much time in the hotel,but I would stay here again because of the location. I would advise people to avoid the £9 cost of breakfast and just walk round the corner to a small cafe and pay half the price.
It was in central London No complimentary tea/coffee making materials
We liked the location as we were visiting art galleries and also had a trip to the theatre. It is in a very convenient spot. We found the room cold in the evening and could have done with another blanket or two, as the weather was very cold. The thermostat didn't appear to work. We woke up cold in the night.
It isso convenient and central for shopping and the theatre I thought the carpets in the corridors were threadbare
The room had a kitchenette with cook-top, refrigerator, dishwasher and flatware/glassware. These amenities came in handy to prepare a meal or have snacks on-hand instead of purchasing every meal at a restaurant. The room was a good size for a in-town European location. The room and bathroom were clean and well-kept.
Great location (just off Trafalgar Sq. and 2 mins walk from the tube station); room is big by London's standard and the price; reasonable facilities The room smelled a bit when I first moved in, especially the kitchenette, either it got better later or I got used to it. Linens were not changed during my stay (3 nights), but you sort of expect that with a serviced apartment. I would be better if we were told how often they change though.
Location The room and hotel needed refurbishing and there were only old blankets on the bed.
Great location, excellent cleanliness, apartahotel concept very good. Internet useless. Recommend bringing your own USB modem
Great service . Very good secure parking
generally efficient and good rooms not cleaned on regular basis. i was told it is once a week. at least the rooms can be cleaned more frequently even though linen need not be changed for a few days.
The location was excellent, very near the tube station embankment, a short walk from covent garden. It was very comfortable. no
good size room, staff very friendly and helpful, quiet hotel whilst being in a very central location no residents bar, reception area bland and personality-less
Very good room size. In fantastic historic building. Excellent large shower.Excellent central location. Check in area a bit cramped and rather disorganised. Called over to us as were leaving check in to give info. about facilities etc. Not very professional in approach. However check out very smooth and so above may just have been a one off at a busy spell.
Fantastic location.Very pleasant room.
Very good place in the middle of the centre Staff at the desk, were unintrested and not really friendly
tv - internet facilities no outside smoking area
Ideal location and good size of rooms
location - in the heart of the city Comparing with other 4 star hotels at the same price the rooms are very small. I booked around 4-6 weeks in advanced asking for city view and all I got was an inner courtyard... I advice that this kind of requests to be processed early and not in the last day when there are no rooms available to choose from.
The hotel was very clean and had good visual appeal. It was also in a great location. The room became very cold at night.
hotel is centrally locatated in london, tube station just around the corner, walking distance from the beautiful covent garden. i loved the service the hotel provides where u can check out on a touch screen computer without having to go to reception. on checking in, we were going to be charged double what i agreed to pay on this web site. only for having my print off of the receipt i wonder would we have had any come back.. not a good start! i booked a studio kitchenette but only got a double room with sofa bed. to be honest we were so tired after coming back from a hard day of shopping we hadnt the energy to argue as long as our room was clean and slept 3 comfortably we didnt mind.
helpfulness of staff
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.
restaurant - quality of food and service outstanding . Staff throughout hotel attentive and helpful .
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.
lack of attention to detail.
The wait time for everything was exceedingly slow. A food order could take over 90 min for delivery. The rooms were not sound proof you could here every person who walked by and what they were saying. The staff were not trained for a hotel of that price. The breakfast selection was mediocre and the same everyday for the 9 days I was there. The hotels decor is old and outdated. It was difficult to even have a bottle of water delivered. The food was less and average.
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.
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.
Friendly, efficient and professional staff! A very minor point. The music in the restaurant at breakfast was rather funereal and repetetive.
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.
The comfort was a feature with a very unusual but welcoming room design. The staff were all helpful and friendly
Central location, room size.
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)
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 :)
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.
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.
The greeting on reception The restaurant facility, the food was excellent the service was very badly organised
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 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.
Friendly staff, cleanliness, facilities, location.
