I would love to give a full 5 to the Strand, but 2 things. 1) my first room had water damage and a leak that woke me up in the middle of the night. 2) When a contacted the front desk, they sent someone to take a look and suggested I would have to change rooms. This required my repacking, and when I inquired if I would be receiving a little upgrade for the inconvenience, the initial response was "No". I began packing and it really landed what a pain this was to have to move. I circled back and asked to speak to the manager, and after a consultation with the manager, I was THEN granted an upgrade. I feel like it should be standard policy of the hotel that in this situation, or ANY where a guest is inconvenienced, SOMETHING should be offered to say "we value your patronage. Other than that, it was a great place to stay for it's location, and the staff, overall, l was warm and welcoming.

Great location, great breakfast, but single room is TINY! Be prepared, but don't let that stop you. Worth the trade-off for the location.

I will be back soon. Great and very nice staff, great breakfast too

Spotless & up-to-date; "cosy" room was WAY too tight.

Excellent property. It was clean the staff was very nice and there is a nice restaurant and bar in the lobby. It is central to everything if you want to see London.

Location is perfect for theatre, main tourist attractions.

The location is good. The room is very small. The closet is small. The lighting in the bathroom is very poor. No ventelation in the bathroom - every shower activates the fire alarm. After every shower the floor is flooded because of the bad sealing.

The hotel is conveniently located, close to Charing Cross and Embankment station. Many restaurants ranging from fast food places to Simpson's on the Strand are within walking distance. Trafalgar Square is also nearby. The buffet-style breakfast was ample and of good quality. The single room is clean and adequate. The cleaning staff are friendly and efficient. I would stay at the Strand Palace again.

Great location but a lot of noise in the surrounding area

Good location Terrible service and dirty building Lifts were impossible had to use the stairs often

The room was never warm enough to be completely comfortable. Otherwise great!

I've stayed at the Strand Palace many times. It offers perhaps the best value in town: reasonable price, good service and a central location for shopping, theatre and cultural institutions. A special shout out for a new doorman, Aaron, who is both helpful and knowledgeable. FYI, I use The Strand both for fun and for business.
