A shame

The Savoy is a fabulous hotel; the room was beautiful and the cocktail bar fun. However, our trip was spoilt by an early morning fire alarm at 7.30, but compounded by housekeeping knocking the door at 8.45 to clean down the room. We could stay until 12. When I spoke to the hotel they said a manager would call me, but they never and at check out there was no attempt make good these basic mistakes. Finally and worrying; on arrival the hotel had merged my details with a guest from the US and were to charge his card with my account!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Avoid convent garden Station during peak hours, This is one of the few subway station in London that does not have an escalator in the lineup to get onto the escalator can be very long, Alternative route is to use Charing Cross or embankment stations just a short three minute walk from the hotel.

Great hotel !

This was 40th wedding anniversary break .Great hotel and great location for other things we had in mind doing! Had to mark it down one star as room was a fraction too small, bathroom was not special either and our "river view " room looked straight into office opposite with windows left open for weekend !

Doing It Right

An absolutely first rate stay at a first rate hotel. Perhaps the most outstanding feature is the ability of the staff to make everyone feel completely comfortable. I am unfortunately not in the habit of staying in hotels in this price range on a regular basis but as a special treat it was well worth it. Whether dining in the Savoy Grill, having cocktails in the American Bar or simply being shown to our room, the staff made my wife and I feel completely at home. I may have to wait for the kids to graduate from college before I go again but I know that I will be looking forward to it.

Treated Like A Queen

From the moment we arrived until my sister and I left, we were handled in the most professional and caring way. The rooms were beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. the aura of the hotel is very rich and deeply historic. Hope to make our way back to London in the near future. Thank you.
