The LaLit is our go to Hotel when we escape to London for a break. This was an anniversary trip, and the hotel knew it and made a few gestures to make us feel special. The hotel is in a quiet area (for London), close to the river and with some great restaurants nearby. The only issue, not a complaint, but worth noting - the waiting staff are not very aware of food allergies, ensure you check the ingredients list on things yourself if you have allergies - they claimed muesli was dairy free when it clearly highlighted milk as an ingredient.

We booked a junior classroom, and we were very disappointed. Our room 309 was not made for two people - just one bedside table, not enough space for two in the wardrobe etc etc. We asked to change room - and that was no problem - but not free of charge. The second room was nice and we enjoyed it, but we weren´t blown away. The restaurant was a in a big hall, and it felt like that. The music played was strange (modern chillout pop) for a restaurant with Indian dishes. But - the food was excellent and at least on of us ate one of his best indian dishes for decades - Murgh Adraki (ginger chicken). The service was ok, but it felt somewhat like everyone was new at work. This dosen´t apply to Tony, at the reception - he took good care of us and gave us interesting tips for things to do.

Everything about this hotel was lovely; the building, its location, the food, the room, the service. i would thoroughly recommend staying here. i think the bed was the most comfortable i have slept in. It was fabulous to be so close to Tower Bridge too.

Really nice hotel if you can afford the luxury. Staff were excellent.Situated 1 block from the Thames and Tower Bridge so much was in walking distance. Hop on off bus right at your front door nearly. old school building.

Impecable service really, very helpful, professional and friendly staff. The food was delicious and great selection of options on the menu. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and of course the location is amazing!

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff were excellent and quite welcoming (and spoke an amazing range of languages!). Situated very close to Tower bridge and the City. Great for business as well as tourism.

My wife and I always stay at the LaLit when we go to London. We have stayed there at least five times and have no desire to stay anywhere else. Exceptionally friendly, and helpful staff. Excellent location.

Fantastic hotel and lovely service, I'd definitely go again! The staff were friendly and I was very happy with the room. The hotel is a beautifully restored former school. Thank you for making an anniversary special.

We held a 2 day conference at the hotel for a party of 15. The staff were attentive and the service was exceptional. The hotel has an Indian theme throughout, the rooms are decorated beautifully and the food was lovely.

We held a 2 day meeting at the hotel with overnight stays etc; the service was fantastic throughout, they couldn't do enough for you. Very professional and attentive. The lunches were nice with an Indian theme running through the hotel.
