Crowne Plaza London - The City

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room and public areas are in excellent condition. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet selection was very good and the fried eggs and omelets were especially good.

Overall excellent hotel. Great location and right next to metro

Very helpful staff. Comfortable and nice rooms. Great location to visit most of the "must see" places in London.

Very clean hotel and close to everything. Highly recommened.

We stayed for 1 night. It was very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. Great location. Staff was helpful and friendly. Would stay here again. Great for families. There was a nice pub across the street.

I don't have anything negative to say except for the breakfast which wasn't very good quality compared to the quality of the hotel. It is best to not to buy the breakfast and eat at one of the many local breakfast places just steps from the hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza - The City over the Christmas and New Year holiday. We had great stay at this hotel. Staff is very friendly and courteous. The Concierge folks will go out of their way to help you in any manner. The rooms are spacious and modern. We got the standard deluxe room with a queen bed. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and quite. We had very good amenities within the room (including high speed internet access to hook up to our netbook computer). We felt that the location of the hotel was centrally located. Within an easy walking distance to St. Pauls, Millennium Bridge, and Shakespeare's Globe. The Tube station (Blackfairs) is right across the street and will easily take you anywhere within London. There are plenty of nice food eateries (Pret A Manger, EAT, Japanese Sushi, Starbucks) within the hotel neighborhood. There are also several major banks across the street from the hotel for ATM cash withdraws. So overall, our stay was fantastic and the hotel an excellent choice. We will definitely come back to stay that this hotel again.

This is a very nice hotel. Management was good and helpful. Room was nice. Restaurants were good and priced accordingly. Over all experience was good. The one negative that I had was with the internet. [...]

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 10 nights. I got a great rate [...] - I don't think I would stay there at their normal rates - too pricey for me.The location was fabulous for me right at the Blackfriar's Bridge. It's a short walk to the Temple Tube station - note that the Blackfriar's tube station is closed until 2011.The room was quite big for London standards. I asked for a quiet room and got one in the interior facing a courtyard (room 420). It had 2 double beds plus some chairs, a table, desk, etc. The bathroom was good sized too with plenty of hot water in the shower which is critical for me. Also, I did like getting my free Daily Mail every morning at my door.Overall, I would stay there again if I got another good deal which was about half the 'advanced purchase' rate. The location was perfect for me. The staff I encountered was friendly and my room was clean.

This hotel was fantastic. The service was great and very attentive. We had a slight issue with our booking, which they remedied very quickly and at their own expense. After that issue was resolved, though, what a great place to stay!! Within walking distance of St. Paul's Cathedral and a number of historic and very interesting pubs. Across the street from Blackfriar's Tube station, but that is unfortunately closed until 2011. Very close to Temple Tube station, though, so it didn't matter much to us!

The hotel is in a great location. Close to St. Pauls and a short underground ride to the Tower of London. A Underground Station is located almost in front of the hotel. From there, you can get anywhere in London.

Convenient location near the Thames. You can walk to the Tate Modern and St Paul's. It is also Convenient to Covent Gardens for dining. Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were a good size and very comfortable. The Blackfriars tube station is closed which makes it a little more difficult to get around. There are other tube stations within walking distance. Wifi service is not available in the rooms.
