Perfect Location! Just Brillant

Perfect location 3 minutes from the National Museum and a 10 minute walk to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westiminister Abbey, 4 minutes to the House Guard Parade, and 15 - 20 minutes to St. Paul. The staff was generally good but a bit stuffy at times...the would not allow me to sit on the stair in front of the hotel and eat my hamburger bought from another business, and then when I moved inside to the lobby they would not let me eat there either because it was "too close" to thier restaurant. This was a bit irratating because as a guest I expected to be able to sit in the lobby and enjoy a quick bite to eat. The lobby and bar area of the hotel is gorgeous and clean. The room was smalll but fine for 1 person. The AC worked great. The daily maid service was great. Ooverall the room was nice but not opulent or great, and a bit on the small side. But the size of the room was definitely compensated for by the BRILLANT location. I would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Great hotel, great location!

We stayed at the Grand for our honeymoon. It was in a great location just down the road from Trafalgar Square and a walking bridge to the South Bank. Could't get any closer to the action for the great price we paid. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and a great place to stay! We would stay again any time!

Get location for the price

chose this hotel because of the great reviews. They weren't wrong. It was in a great location with a fair price. Very quiet and clean. The only negative was the key card device in the elevators. Had to fiddle with it to get it to work. Many guests just gave up and asked the desk clerks to do it for them.

HMS Belfast is a WW II Navy ship that has been converted to a museum. It sits on the Thames near the Lambert Bridge, easy to get to and a very interesting real-life museum conversion.

Amazing location, everything else just OK

Excellent location for tourists, which was the primary reason we booked this hotel. We were able to walk almost everywhere while on vacation. Free bottles of purified water were a huge plus. Our room had a few small dead spiders that were left on the ceiling when we arrived. Housekeepers vacuumed outside of our room around 8:30 each morning and were often yelling to one another around this time which woke us up several mornings.
