My kinda hotel

Great hotel!! Location unbeatable (esp. if you like theatre), price fabulous, room service excellent, bed nice and firm. The only possible drawback is that the room was quite small. Really only barely fit the bed and desk. But for this location at this price it was totally worth it!! Would definitely recommend and frequent again!

Good location

The single room I was given was on the 9th floor and the room had no A/C. With above normal temperatures in London, it was very unpleasant. Otherwise, the hotel was nice and very quiet. Excellent breakfast bar.

Palace Hotel

I was pleasantly surprised by the Palace hotel. I arrived in the morning but was given my room with no delay. Though small, the room was clean, the bathroom newly renovated, and the shower had wonderfully hot water. Though I was in London during a heat wave, the room was pleasantly cool with a fan they provided. The hotel is 4 minutes from Covent Garden tube station and near all sorts of things. If you're in London for a week get the 7 day travel card; you can travel forever without having to buy tickets each time.

Excellent Location, a little stuffy

Overall this was a good hotel in an excellent location, right near the Thames with easy access to just about anything you'd like to see in Central London. The hotel itself is reasonably nice with some good restaurants. My only real complaint regards the absence of air conditioning, which made the room hot and stuffy (it was considerably warmer inside the room than outside in the British air). That did make it difficult to sleep at night, even with the windows open (although they only open 100 mm) and a fan going. That knocked a couple stars off for me. Aside from that, it was a good experience.

Great Location

The location of this hotel is great for seeing the sights of London. The concierge staff was the most helpful I have ever encountered and made the visit much less stressful. The lack of air conditioning is probably not an issue except there was a heat wave in London with no rain that made the room uncomfortable during the day while dressing. There was a fan provided in the room and it was comfortable to sleep.

The good, the bad, and the really ugly

Our room was in terrible shape, peeling wallpaper, stained toilet bowl, we were only there one night to see Lion King so we didn't complain. However we got up the next morning to NO HOT WATER!!!! They had a boiler problem, they offered to let us have a late check out but we didn't want to spend another minute here. They ended up giving us a free breakfast. Spoke to another couple they were in a remodeled room but it was extremely tiny.
