Very nice but far too hot!

We queued for about half an hour in the lovely air conditioned comfort of the foyer. The lift ride up to Cloud 23 was quick and smooth. The bar itself is modern and elegant and... read more

A friend had paid for us both to have afternoon tea as my birthday treat. We are both afternoon tea experts (we believe) and so I was interested to see how this was going to differ from other hotel teas. As we arrived in the foyer, we were directed to some easy chairs by the man in charge of the... More

Yes yes I know that we were a difficult table. Three children under 5, a vegetarian, a fatal nut allergy and an egg allergy (10 years of working in hospitality made me automatically pity the poor sod who had us in his section) however, we don't get together as a family very often and we wanted it to be special....

We queued for about half an hour in the lovely air conditioned comfort of the foyer. The lift ride up to Cloud 23 was quick and smooth. The bar itself is modern and elegant and the service was pleasant and efficient. The only downside was the temperature! It was stiflingly hot and quite unpleasant. I realise that it was a... More

This is the second time we visited cloud23 and very stupidly I'm forgot to book a table which if you know you are going it is a must to do to avoid the queue of doom which we had to join and waited approx 45 mins to get a seat. Once in we had the very helpful and knowledgeable Ethan... More

We only happened to try out this bar by chance... Although there was a very long wait in a queue to go up the lift to the bar (around 20mins), I can certainly see why the Hilton does this. The bar is run like a restaurant; everyone is seated at a table and there is table service by a waiter... More

We got a taxi here to find an enormous Que of people waiting to go upstairs. After queuing for 5 minutes a member of staff then decided to tell me that I wasn't dressed correctly as there was a dress code in the evening. How black jeans and Paul Smith shoes arnt accepted I don't know! I wore the same... More

Came here with one of my closest friends last week, nice cocktails, expected a heavy price considering its a fine hotel, would be five star if it had its own car park!. Service charge added to the bill?, when we had to pour our own bottle of wine when the glass was empty??. How can you charge such a high... More

I decided to visit Cloud 23 for my birthday celebrations. We were running a bit late so tried to call the bar to inform them about 20 times with no answer, but that was fine as we got seated without a problem. The place wasn't busy yet we had to ask to be served after waiting for half an hour.... More

Reserved 2 seats for the Champagne Afternoon Tea at the Cloud 23 bar. Never been to the Hilton hotel so it was a pleasant surprise to be greeted by a really friendly doorman who asked us if we have been here before and where we are going so he could help us with the lift etc etc. Arrived in the...
