This hotel is ace, every single inch of the place is stunning. The ceiling in one of the hotel bars has a fantastic amount of gold leaf, each small square roughly 100mm x 100mm will have been carefully put in place by hand using a smallish brush, take a long look when you visit it is truly amazing. Definitely take the time to admire the sheer amount of quality workmanship and fabulous design in the hotel public areas it a real treat to anyone who appreciates style and craftsmanship.
We ate in the restaurant on New Years Day and the food, service and wine were nothing short of excellent, the friendly staff made our stay even better if it could be better. The breakfast is again the best money can buy with just about anything you could ever want to get you going on a morning and much much more.
I used the gym and that is a real cool place to be with loads of great equipment, note to the hotel better water facilities would definitely be appreciated but still I am not complaining because every other part is unbeatable.
This is our second stay at new year as the hotel is ideally placed to watch the fireworks on the embankment then wander back in to the excellent cocktail area and listen to the pianist who again is a great guy and very talented. Thank you for playing our choice of songs on new years day night but next year it has to be wham and last christmas ha ha.
The hotel is not cheap but if like us you work hard or just have bags of cash this is without doubt the place to be at any time of the year.
Thank you to all the staff including the concierge who minded our car while we checked in the porter who delivered our bags to the room, the reception staff to who nothing was too much trouble for and the pianist who made our last night one to remember and every other member of staff because the room was always spotless and everyone was friendly. Great way to start the new year. Now I just have to save up to come back
I parked my own car for £36 a night, half the price of the hotel and only a five min walk away

Thank you for your delightful review of Corinthia Hotel London, we are really charmed by your response and feedback. We agree with you, the hotel really is very special, and you have pointed out the attention to detail at every level and outlet which is very much appreciated. The hotel was designed to the highest specification by GA Design, who have incorporated the best quality materials in every aspect of the building, which includes commissioning new works of art to compliment the public areas. Your stay with us was at a very magical time of year, when you could enjoy the benefits of the proximity to the spectacular fireworks display from The Thames, a few minutes’ walk away and many of our rooms overlook the South Bank. Bassoon bar serves exceptional cocktail and has a different musician every evening from 9pm until the small hours. We can’t wait to welcome you back soon.
