Excellent Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Jan 4, 2016
I had booked an executive king room with all the bells and whistles, however the view from the room was onto the side street in the Buckingham wing. The room was excellent apart from the view, so I called reception and asked if there were any alternative rooms with a view. I was told there was nothing available for that evening but I could be moved the following day to a junior suite for the remaining 3 nights of my stay. This was more than I was expecting so I would say this hotel would be my first choice when returning to London.

Another Great Stay at this Hotel

Would recommend Sat, Jan 2, 2016
We have stayed at this hotel a number times especially around Christmas when we are visiting friends in London. We especially like this hotel for its location (close to Convent Gardens) and its staff who are always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are comfy and inviting and generally clean and tidy, this year we had a odd shaped room which could have been cleaner but was still pleasant enough. Hotel was decked out with Christmas decorations and the bars great for post theatre drinks, I love this hotel and will be back next year.

Excellent location

Would recommend Mon, Dec 7, 2015
Right next to historic Charing Cross, the Amba shares the structure with the Charing Cross train station. There's a Tube Stop within easy walking distance. Trafalgar Square is just over a block away, and Westminster/Parliament/Big Ben is an easy 10 minute walk. The hotel itself is excellent, very nicely decorated, and has a great staff. There's a very nice restaurant and bar, as well as a gym. Our only real complaint, don't flush the toilet when someone is in the shower. It was a scalding surprise. Not what I expected for the amount of money this room cost. I know that seems small, but not when you're the one in the shower. Word to the wise. Would we stay at the Amba again...definitely.

Love the Amba Hotel

Would recommend Fri, Nov 6, 2015
We had a great experience at the Amba. The location is right off Trifalger Square, convenient to rail, metro, cabs, and busses. Plenty of night life, pubs, shows, shops, all within a short walk. Staff falls all over you, they can't do enough. Great local for business or pleasure.

Money Well Spent

Would recommend Fri, Oct 30, 2015
The hotel exceeded expectations in every way- all amenities were included and we utilized them constantly- we saved significant cash eating breakfast in the hotel every morning - Tube station is in the lobby, which made everything accessible. When we return to London, we will be staying at the Amba.

Everyone was friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. We travel a lot all over the world and Amba Charing Cross was definitely in our top five. Special kudos to the check in staff at the front desk we felt like we had been there before. Thank you.
