We stayed a week. A beautiful grand hotel, so convenient to the Strand, Covent Garden and transportation to get you anywhere else you wish to go. All in all we had a very nice stay. Room was pleasant and nicely decorated. Bathroom was beautiful, with a huge double window for natural light and air. Brand new fixtures, sparkling chrome. Bathtub/shower... More

We have stayed in many Hiltons all over the world and thought the Waldorf Hilton was one of the best. We stayed in 2 of the updated rooms on the 4th floor and were very impressed by how comfortable, clean and elegant the rooms were. The bathroom was very large by European standards and updated with marble; and the beds... More

I stay at the Waldorf when I am in London and want a special evening out in town especially the Theatre. It is located in Aldwych which is between the City of London to the East and Charing Cross (Trafalgar Square) in the west. Behind the hotel is Covent Garden and all around are London's theatres and many many restaurants,... More

This hotel is in a great location for Covent garden, theatres and sightseeing. We have stayed here many times either for business or pleasure. So we have stayed both in the deluxe rooms and in the Executive rooms. This trip was a birthday treat so we had booked an Executive Room which according to the hotel website was "spacious". Unfortunately... More

Stayed here last summer using Avios, would have been disappointed if I had paid in cash. Rooms were lovely, but a little small. The entrance and outside of the hotel look very impressive, though I was disappointed when I entered the foyer by how dated and 'tired' it seemed, certainly not up to the Hotel rating. We had dinner using... More

Although I put a 5, it would really be a 4.5, but everyone was so nice, I will give the upward benefit. I need to put the disclaimer that we were staying on points and if we had paid, I may have felt differently. First, head concierge Daniel Firth is wonderful and helpful; I highly recommend you talk to him... More

This just missed the mark slightly. Nothing dramatic - room was fine, but small. Remote control didn't work properly. Check out on Saturday morning should not have taken 15 minutes of queuing. Paying for Wi-fi is a bit of a pain too.
