“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

If i came back for business or with the wife i would stay here. Very quiet. Very nice. Great thermal spas on bottom floors. Very close to tube stop, if needed. If i was with the family i would still go back to the Athenuem because we could get that full apt and its closer to some of the sights for walking.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I've stayed here many times now and its a very good hotel.

Rooms are large and very comfortable with excellent service from all the staff.

It has a great bar with super service,

The main public areas are smart and welcoming.

The breakfast area is ok, its more like a smart French bistro and the food is generally very good.

Location wise again its ok but its not in Mayfair but if your a tourist then its not that bad close to trafalger square.

It really depends on your room rate, personally if your paying full rates and you had the choice of Claridges, the Savoy or the Connaught then I'd rather stay in these because of the location or the ambiance. However the Corinthia is a very good hotel overall and you will enjoy staying here.

My second visit didn't disappoint. I tried different restaurants, had a different room and this time took a grown-up! The hotel still knocks spots off others, it just scream luxury, but with such amazing staff and environment that you feel so welcome. Even having a simple hot chocolate in the Lobby Lounge feels indulgent. Nothing is too much to ask. I am a member of the spa, too and this is such an asset to the hotel. I am going to stay again next week.

What a stunning hotel amazing design tastefully styled polite professional staff comfortable room superb bathroom amazing spa only niggle breakfast nice selection fresh fruit etc but tepid hot food freshly cooked eggs etc properly toasted bread should be the rule at these prices
And a man designed the bedroom ? Silly little table with coffee machine etc looked like an afterthought ..put the tv on the wall and make a little space ...the rooms are a little snug...but the pillows are the finest in the universe ..amazing we will return

Room Tip: The more you pay the larger the room ..simple

Thank you for your review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We greatly appreciate your comments regarding the amazing design by GA Design, who have incorporated the original Victorian features with state-of-the art technology which has resulted in a grand hotel for the 21st Century. We apologise that your stay was slightly marred by some irritations at breakfast, and hope this did not spoil your stay. The majority of our rooms have the TV attached to the wall, and even our standard rooms are amongst the biggest of any central London hotel; please advise when you are next coming to stay with us and we will try and allocate one of our larger standard rooms for you. We are already fluffing up your goose down pillows for your next stay with us when we can welcome you back once more.
