ME London is just moments away from Covent Garden, the River Thames and Trafalgar Square. Overlooking Somerset House the hotel is ideally located for the bright lights of the West End, and is the place to see and be seen during Fashion Week. Superstar design practice Foster + Partners (founded by Lord Norman Foster himself) have been responsible for all exterior and interior design for the hotel, and the end-product is a building of unique personality, reflecting a vibe that is truly London. The 157 rooms, including 16 Suites, of ME London each feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering unparalleled views of the city. Guests can take advantage of the integrated digital media hubs, rain shower in the en-suite bathroom and flat screen LCD TVs. Entering the hotel, guests are whisked away from the bustle of the street to the First Floor Reception, housed in a breath-taking nine-storey white marble pyramid. Here the Aura Manager will greet each guest by name and begin the truly individual service ME London promises. Unique to ME by Melia hotels, The Aura Manager's job is it is to know the city back-to-front, to get to know each guest personally, and use this knowledge to make the hotel's service truly bespoke. From in-room lighting and your favourite chocolate on the pillow to insider tips on what to do in the city and securing the hottest ticket in town - the AM will have everything in hand. Guests are spoilt for choice by the hotel's two ground-floor restaurants. STK London, a vibrant and modern steakhouse concept straight out of New York, creates an energetic vibe with in-house DJ and black gloss and cream design-scheme. Whereas Cucina Asselina, ME London's Italian Mediterranean relaxed-dining concept, promises a taste of Tuscany in the heart of London. Also on the ground floor is the ultra-modern Marconi Lounge Bar. The perfect location for any meeting, business or pleasure, Marconi serves tea/coffee, smoothies, handmade pastries as well as a curated selection of alcoholic beverages. Head to the top floor of ME London and be ready for the stunning panoramic views offered at Radio, the partially-covered rooftop terrace bar, unrivalled in London. The only rooftop space in the area to be open from breakfast-late, Radio serves a broad selection of spirits, wines and soft drinks and boasts a quirky and innovative cocktail menu.

ME - Mostly Excellent

The ME is a first rate choice for those doing business in the city, sightseeing, and particularly for the theatre. The area abounds in ease of access to sites, restaurants, pubs, and limited shopping. The staff, particularly the concierge and doormen, were first class. The size, albeit a bit small, was perfect for our visit. The view from the roof-top lounge was perhaps one of the top in the city. Overall, expect to pay 5 star prices for all services at the hotel. The appetizers at the roof-top are a relative bargain to balance out the pricey drinks. The afternoon tea in the lobby is well worth it! Advice to travel from Heathrow is the express train to Paddington, then a cab to the hotel.

Amazing break with excellent staff

This hotel is beautiful, from the outside it is very understated but then you walk in and see the wonderful interior. You are shown to the recption area and given a glass of bubbly whilst checking in which is a lovely touch. The rooftop bar is great it does get busy on the evening but if you plan a sneaky cocktail late afternoon you should get a seat :-) The staff can not do enough for you and are extremley pleasant. Would highly recommend this hotel

Great location; some quirks

Great location but some weird annoying quirks such as smoked glass partition for toilet and shower adjacent to sinks/ hallway might be not enough privacy for some. Lighting is controlled by bedside panel so you have to turn on hall, bathroom before you get there. Big rooms for London. but small windows so not a lot of light. Loud music on Thursday-Sat nights so it can be a pain with all the non-guests hanging out in the lobby. Would def. go back if I got a good deal.

Chic, Smart, Swanky and Perfectly Situated

Located on the corner of the Strand & Aldwych, the ME is a stunning, modern take on classic luxury. The soaring atrium when one checks in; the stunning marble hallways; the chic rooms with superbly comfortable beds; the magnificent view from the rooftop lounge. All quite swanky. Only possible downside is the very very busy nightclub, which takes one elevator out of service during the evening hours.

As always, great!

I've stayed in many hotels in London. The main issue with most of them is the room size. With ME hotel it's not an issue at all. I tried three different rooms and all of them are spacious. The staff is very helpful and always smiling. A little bit pricey but worth it.
