London in two days

The hotel is in the perfect location. We could see parliament and Big Ben from our window. There are 2 Tube stations within walking distance. The hotel itself was very nice and the rooms were comfortable. The staff was very friendly, helpful with tour options and assisted with making reservations. We were only able to spend two full days in London so each night we came back to the room and ordered room serve. It was delicious and reasonably priced.

Awesome trip

The staff are extremely helpful and attentive here. There's generally enough staff to handle all areas of the hotel. Very good rate and beautiful view of Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

Happy Traveler 2013

The hotel is off the beaten path. It is a fairly long walk to any transportation. Tremendous amount of construction. No view available from most windows due to the construction. We had several financial issues at checkout. Item prices were not as quoted at check in. Upon return to the US, found additional incorrect charges added to the amended bill. Just paid the bill, but I would not recommend this hotel. Must be something better available.

Perfect location, amazing comfort

Myself, My Wife and two friends booked in for a three night stay, the Hotel is a stones throw away from The Houses of Parliment and Big Ben. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. My only gripe would be the price of drinks at the residents bar, but thats a minor gripe.

Great London Hotel

Hotel was in a very central location in London, clean and modern rooms, friendly staff and reasonable rates. The dining options were somewhat limited though.

Fantastic first experience

The location of the hotel was perfect. It was centrally located with easy access to all the sites and shopping. This was my first time in London, unfortunately I was only there two days. However the staff were extremely helpful in describing the best way to see all the sites in such a short time frame. I had a fantastic time and will definitely stay there again.

Elegant comfort

We stayed here 3 days Pryor to a Baltic Cruise and 4 days following. It is conveniently located to all the major sites and right on the main bus route and scenic bus routes. Close to Vauxhall underground ("The Tube") to get to other destinations. The staff was so courteous and very accommodating and help us to find our way around London! The only negative things I have to say is that they don't leave washcloths with the towels, (had to call daily for them) and a hair drier was not provided. The resturant was very expensive but there is some lovely pubs and small restaurants within a two block area. We found The Rose Pub/Resturant a delightful, charming, reasonably priced place to have delicious meals and fine drink. The hotel did provide a US 110 watt plug-in to use without having to use a converter. They also converted our $ to £ for no charge.

Perfect one night stay

We booked the hotel as a friend had arranged boat party on the Thames and we needed somewhere to stay for the night. We chose this location as it's very central and only 10-15 mins walk to Traf Sq, but is very quiet and is right next to the river. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were very pleasantly surprised to hear we had been upgraded to the 5* apartments! Lovely! I don't know the reason, think they may have had a large group in or something. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer.

Nice Hotel

This is a nice hotel, a relatively short walk from the Vauxhall Tube station. My room was clean & comfortable, and quiet. I was there on a busy weekend, but was never disturbed by hallway noise. The staff I interested with were all courteous & professional. By American standards though, this is not a 4-star hotel.
