First class hotel with outstanding service. Will defiinitly stay there again when visiting London. Walking distance to most everything. Very close to Westminster Abby. Great breakfast. Extremely nice people. Outstanding Indian Resturant two doors down. Ask for room facing courtyard if available and away from construction. We did and it was very quite. Wish we could have spent more time... More

Took the Bus #24 from the Euston Tube Station - easiest and most cost effective way to get there - attended London for the Marathon - and attended through Marathon tours --was a fair bit pricey - that may be the hotel or the tour company - I suspect was a little of both - check in was smooth and...

This was a great location for our visit to London. Close to many historical sites. Also short walk to Buckingham palace. Beautiful courtyard. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food was good. Our room was spacious and comfortable beds. Sitting area with a great view. Would definitely book this hotel again. Was a very good value.

Nice hotel near many companies. Rooms are small and A/C does not work well, but that could have been due to the weather changing. Staff offered internet package with Exec Floor, but at Checkout it was on the bill. The manager addressed it, but be aware. Overall nice hotel.

I had stayed here before this was a Taj Hotel and was afraid the quality had changed. It did change... for better! The hotel is beautiful, with a very British entrance and the room was very good on the top floor with a king bed, marvellous pillows (you even have the pillow menu if you need a special one), robe,...

Well located and really comfortable. Rooms were small but very well appointed and more than adequate for a short stay. A special deal made the hotel good value for money. It was easy to relax in the bar late into the evening post theatre. Staff very accommodating. Only criticism is that breakfast was overpriced and not worth the £24 charge.

We've stayed here three times, all before and after Princess cruises. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's all about location, location, location, convenience, and great service and staff. We travel light and carry or roll our luggage, so we can take the bus or train in from the airport and walk from Victoria Station (about 10 minutes). There are lots... More

Stayed her for seven days in March, ideal location for exploring London, easy access to public transport, very friendly and helpful staff. The room was comfortable, service excellent and bars convivial and breakfast in the restaurant very good. Good eateries close by. Very convenient for the Queen Elizabeth Convention Centre.

The location is great and near the palace so very accesible to the Royal Parks and shopping of Oxford Street and Knightsbridge. Communal areas very plushly laid out on the ground floor but once you go up in the lifts decor and rooms are very drab and in desparate need of updating. Very disapointing. Try and avoid the 1st floor... More
