good location - over priced room

the hotel was nice along with the staff. i booked a club room double that was smaller than the room my sister had - a club room single. the pictures shown on the website are not photos of the rooms they give people. woke up with a back ache from the mattress everyday.

Strand Palace Hotel

The room was not ready at checkin, i had to wait for more than 2 hours, also the room furniture is not as shown in pictures, it is old design, and very small rooms. No air-condition, no refrigerator. you pay more than you get. the best thing about the hotel is its location

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, reasonable price

It is a great hotel for the price at such a central location for theaters, museums and the famous sites, all in walking distance. However, there is no air conditioning and after a few warm days, the room was very warm, did not cool down at night and remained warm at night even after the weather cooled down. I would not recommend staying here in summer months.

Location, location, location

If you want a perfectly decent hotel in a great location, this is it. The rooms are small (in the US think Holiday Inn or Motel 6). Perfectly acceptable and much more reasonable than other hotels in London. The best thing about this hotel is the location - in the heart of the theater district and central to everything. You can walk or take a short tube ride to most of the top sites. Staff is nice and very helpful. Would recommend if you aren't planning on staying in your hotel room all day.

Great location - hard beds - crummy pillows

The individual room I had was lovely, small but more than adequate. Bathroom was perfect. The location is fabulous, just across from the Savoy and near theaters. I wanted walking distance to the British Museum so it had seemed worth the extra money. Unfortunately, I arrived with a terrible head cold and spent my time in bed. Yikes, I couldn't believe how hard the bed was and the pillows were thin and hard as well. Maybe it is American vs British standards, or that I was in an individual room. I ate at Johnson's, one of their restaurants, what a mistake. Overpriced and terrible food - the pan fried mullet was inedible and the 'specialty bread' was greasy with butter. The replacement was marginally better so I gave up. (Or maybe I just forgot how bad English 'cuisine' is - this wasn't my first time). The prepaid breakfast was expensive but excellent (after two sick days I could finally eat). 15.3 pound cab ride from Paddington Station, not the 10 pounds I was told. The cost was not justified for me.

Just a place to sleep

The room was fine, but cramped and covering only the bare minimum; the main advantage of this hotel is the location, walking distance from so much of West End London. This is a hotel for people who aren't planning to spend much time in their hotel room, but want a convenient location for touristing around London.

Good for the price, nice location, but ...

crazy smell of poison against cockroaches in the hall! You can barely hold your breath. I had really bad headache because of that. The hotel was getting ready for the Olympics I guess, was all covered by plastic, from outside it was just not looking good at all.
