Dining

The Momentus Champagne Bar
The Momentus Champagne Bar is the place to be in W1. Step from Oxford Street into the contemporary new bar, where high ceilings accentuate the stylish purple furnishings. As youd imagine, this bar has a special ambiance: laid-back and sultry, yet full of life and colour. The perfect setting for after work, pre-dinner or late into the night drinks. Something you could definitely develop a taste for.
Carbon Bar
A unique blend of heavy-industrial decor with West end style and sophistication gives this place a sultry ambiance. Music is provided by our own and guest DJ's, who've headlined at clubs across London and Ibiza.
The Brasserie at The Cumberland
Defined by its relaxed, informal setting, The Brasserie serves a menu of European classics with a distinctly British twist. Drop in for lunch or dinner, or treat yourself to our legendary Sunday Roast.

Excellent night in London

I was on Business, giving an award at another hotel. The reception was highly efficient & pleasant and upgraded me to the executive wing where the rooms are bigger. The room was a good size double, clean, modern & quiet. The hotel is seconds from the tube and right on the main shopping street. I didn't take the breakfast but that was discounted too. The hotel feels classy and is. Excellent value at the price I paid.

A thousand rooms.

Some people may find it fascinating, we didn't. Location is very central. The room was quieter but dirtier than expected

Jimi's Suite

Stayed two nights in the Jimi Hendrix suite, which was absolutely fabulous. Hendrix was a big inspiration, and this was his room when he passed away at his girlfriends flat. Most staff was exceptional, however a couple of girls at reception were a little difficult when changing rooms. Overall great.

Impersonal hotel, great location

Cumberland was the most impersonal hotel I have ever stayed at. Your identity as a hotel guest doesn't matter, the staff at the reception won't even mention your name once during the check-in/check-out process. You feel like you are in a room factory and should expect that your walk to your room will take a few minutes from the elevator if you are located on the far end. The rooms are tiny, on top of that they tried to put us up in a room even smaller than the one we booked through Orbitz. On the other hand, the beds were quite comfortable and the layout of the room makes up somewhat for the size-induced discomfort. There is absolutely no early check-in, which is pretty inconvenient if you arrive at 8am and have to wander around the city until 3pm without being able to freshen up in the comfort of your hotel room. All in all, the price-value ratio was acceptable and the location makes this hotel a recommended one.
