The hotel is very well located, about a 20 minute walk to the Royal Albert Hall. Don't be misled by the hotels photos, I think they snuck into the hotel next door and took a few cheeky shots ! The room was spacious but only adequate. Not luxury and certainly not the fixtures and fitting advertised. Washing up liquid for... More

Our thanks to this guest for taking the time to provide some feedback. Obviously, I very much regret the shortcomings specifically mentioned and have taken steps to ensure these are not repeated. Unfortunately, with the information available to me, I am unable to identify the guest and, therefore, the night of their stay and the apartment occupied. The photographs we... More

Good location, Good size room, quiet. The room has every amenity you could want such as two large TV's, iron, cooking facilities. Internet Wi-Fi connection is OK but not great. Ask for non-basement apartment. I will book it again on my next trip to London.

I had booked my stay at The Harrington based on its location and availability after I extended my originally-overnight London trip at short notice. I only read some online reviews after I had made my booking and initially felt apprehensive about the property's current works but, having just returned from my stay, I wholeheartedly agree with the more level-headed reviews...

Having read a previous review I was fortunately aware of the current refurbishment of the foyer. Had I not been aware I would have been understandably concerned, it was looking rather bare after all.

I am a frequent visitor to London, and have to say that the location is perfect. Everything is within very easy reach. However, i had a chock,when i arrived, i almost thought i had the wrong place.
