Paying for the Location

Chose this hotel over others for the location - proximity to Paddington, the tube and Oxford Street. Booked a king size bedroom as I wanted something a little nicer for my birthday. We arrived a little before check-in and were told that we could have a room now or wait for a larger room so opted for the latter. I'm not sure how small the other room was as the room we got didn't seem massive and felt a bit small to have a king size bed in. The other thing that we noticed is that the room reeked of smoke - this was meant to be on a non smoking floor. We were in a rush to go out so I really couldn't be bothered to try to get it changed and it didn't seem too bad after a while (when we got home I found that any clothes not put in the drawers stank of smoke though). Bed was a little worn and so was the room and general feel of everything. I think that the most impressive part of the hotel was the ground floor, bar and amenities. The location is great but very busy as you would expect. However don't expect luxury from the rooms. Next time I think I'll choose a more modern hotel in a quieter location like Apex or H10.

Upscale London Central Hotel

Great central london Hotel near the Tube. Classy, beautiful and accommodating to families. We were provided with a great large room to fit our family of 5. Wish we had more than 1 night to utilize their amenities.

Great price and service to go with it.

The price was almost half the price of other hotels in the area so I was slightly sceptical of the star rating. On arrival the hotel is undergoing a transformation and was surrounded by workmen. Nevertheless the current was lobby was clean and the service at the checkin desk was above average. Room was clean and had all the relevant amenities albeit the media services needed upgrading. Nothing to complain about given the price and I would definately stay again

Good Deal

The room was clean and I felt very safe. The hotel was under construction and London was under snow so I got a lower rate for the hotel stay. I was satisfied at the deal I got. Other guests complained a lot about the noise. Perhaps I got a better room rate than them. :-) I was very cold. After several days a maintenance person told me that the maids turn down the heat every day when they clean the room. The method I was using to raise the thermostat was not working. He showed me how to change the temperature. That detracted from my enjoyment of my stay. I don't like to be cold. . The first morning I was told that my breakfast was not included in my room rate. I paid for the breakfast, but went elsewhere for breakfast the next several days. The last 2 days of my stay I just happened to go to the hotel dining room. The meal was included on those days. I wonder how many days it was included and I didn't know. I think that type of thing should be communicated to the guest. If I paid for it, I want to receive it. The concierge was very helpful. I used public transportation during my stay and he could tell me which station was near the place I wanted to go. For example, museums and "the palace and the wheel". Overall I liked the hotel and the staff. I felt safe and clean during my stay.

One of the better luxury hotel deals in London

This hotel is an excellent value for a city like London. Often it is possible to get a room for $200-$250 per night which is outstanding for a 4-5 star hotel. Very friendly staff, very nice rooms and beds. Pool, sauna, steam room. High speed internet should be included in the room rate, therefor I took off one star. Location is kinda sketchy but not really bad. Walking distance to hyde park, marble arch station.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

1/2 hour walk or so to buckingham palace. Taxi rates are basically not that high but can be totally stuck in traffic which will make the ride expensive.

Girls' Trip to London

We walked in to a beautiful view on the 23rd floor of the west wing, but it was pretty much downhill from there. The showers barely trickled out water. In the morning, there was no hot water for one of us. We were disappointed to find that there was no free internet access. Our last night, I was in the shower to hear some incessant screeching. It turned out it was a fire alarm. I pulled on some clothing still wet, pulled on some shoes, grabbed a towel for my hair, then we started down the 23 story climb into the drizzly evening. We eventually got to relax in the lobby while we waited for the all-clear signal. Suffice it to say, we were exhausted for our flight out the next morning.
