I have stayed here three times and can not fault it. Great location, pretty good service for London, great breakfast (like all these hotels), comfortable room, clean - I make a point of staying at this chain when in the UK.

Stayed just one night for a "mini-honeymoon" following our wedding the previous day. Can't praise the staff highly enough. From the moment we checked in the service was truly exceptional. Particular mention to Tina who sorted out an upgrade to a fantastic newly refurbished suite, a bottle of complimentary fizz and fruit plate for our return from an evening out... More

As we were unable to travel due to illness the charing cross moved our booing to a later date as a goodwill gesture. Best room we have had here so far and our favorite hotel because of the location and the hotel is just classic london. supurb.

Stayed at the Charing Cross Several times, it just gets better. The staff excel in trying to help you. We will be returning in November for some Christmas Shopping, can't wait. Keep up the good work. The rooms facing the square must rate with the best in London.
