Perfect location for a stay in London. Close to all the right places, Strand, South bank, Piccadilly, Leicester Square, Covent Garden and the Mall. Rooms fairly spacious good showers and in fair order. The bar area could do with a make over as looking a little jaded. Very helpful staff, nice restaurant for buffet style breakfast. By booking and paying... More

A fine Hilton property which scores well on all usual points. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Some quirky touches give it the feel of a boutique hotel despite being run by a major chain.

I loved this hotel for its LOCATION! I walked every where (almost) and saved so much money on taxis/etc. So let's talk some cons and then we'll do some pros: 1. I paid for a view and it was actually really hard to see this 'view' that I paid for. 2. Housekeeping was not up to standard. For some reason... More
