“Ideal luxury hotel in perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I cannot fault this hotel - the location just off Trafalgar Square was perfect, the staff attentive, the ambience elegant. The bathrooms are huge and the beds comfortable. I can't wait to return - this will now be my top recommendation for a luxury hotel in London.

Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. The location of the hotel is ideal for both the leisure and business traveller, it is within walking distance of many of London’s iconic sights, over thirty West End theatres are within a mile radius and we are adjacent to the transport hub of Charing Cross rail and Embankment tube stations. Our bedrooms and sumptuous marble bathrooms are amongst the largest of central London hotels and all are highly appointed with the very best fixtures and fabrics. We very much appreciate your recommendation and look forward to receiving you on your next visit.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager

I have never stayed here, but previously have enjoyed a wedding dinner in Massimo's, the Italian restaurant, which was excellent.

Recently I entertained a party of 7 friends to Promenade Theatre at the Corinthia. This is where you are whisked around the hotel as part of the plot in a theatrical experience where you individually are the centre of attention. I had feared cringe inducing audience participation, but this is much more subtle and not to be feared - you and your guests certainly have much to discuss over a lively dinner afterwards. I had booked Massimo's once more and the hotel gave me a theatre menu deal, which was very well received by our party.

Otherwise, the experience of seeing this wonderful hotel via Promenade Theatre confirms the 5 star status. The Corinthia have an exciting Artist in Residence programme, so watch out for other intriguing entertainment that they intend to put on !!

Thank you for your review of your theatre and dining experience at Corinthia Hotel London. The Artist in Residence programme has proved to be an enormous success and we are really pleased you had the opportunity to be part of it. We are really pleased your party enjoyed their dinner in Massimo Restaurant and Oyster Bar and were able to sample the excellent pre and post theatre menu. Keep an eye out for our next Artist in Residence venture, details to be announced shortly. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Corinthia London soon, perhaps to experience some of our Afternoon Tea or The Northall on your next visit.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

Returned to the Corinthia for the second time last weekend and had another great stay. The hotel is special in every way. We were looked after extremely well and the staff were, once again, excellent.

We stayed for two nights in mid-April. We had a deluxe junior suite and from the moment we arrived in our hire car our stay was flawless. We pulled up and 3 doormen helped us gather all of our belongings from a week of driving out of the hire car, then parked it for us and held it free of charge until the hire car company picked it up. A lovely bottle of champagne awaited us in the suite.

We spent a wonderful afternoon at the spa... we were disappointed we hadn't booked more treatments, it is absolutely worth it!

As international tourists we also loved the small Harrods store in the lobby, wonderful to be able to purchase a few last minute forgotten gifts without going out.

Room Tip: The junior suites are worth it!

Thank you for your lovely review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London, it certainly sounds like you had a very special experience. Our doormen enjoy a wonderful reputation of always going above and beyond in their duties to ensure each and every one of our guests has a memorable stay from the very beginning. We are really pleased you were able to relax and recuperate in ESPA Life at Corinthia spa, it really is quite exceptional and the expert therapists provide the most amazing range of professional treatments. Corinthia London boasts the only in-hotel Harrods shop in the world and offers a delightful choice of gifts you really would love to keep for yourself. We hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you to the hotel, when we can once again exceed your expectations.

I have to say I have stayed in many 5* hotels and this is probably the best so far. My favourite usual haunt when staying in London has been the Landmark however Corinthia has now replaced that.
Unfortunately I only had a one night stay with my daughter, but from the evening meal, breakfast and afternoon tea to the fantastic room and oh so comfortable beds to the most relaxing Espa Thermal floor, I could not find one thing to fault.
The 24 hour check-in and out time was brilliant and added that extra touch - no more rushing after breakfast to pack and get out before 12 noon and what a difference that made.

I hope that I might be able to stay again for my BIG birthday and enjoy all the extra touches that this hotel offers. Whoever thought of those added 'extra's' WELL DONE because it certainly makes Corinthia stand out head and shoulders above the rest.

I will certainly be using this hotel for business trips to London in future and hope to bring the rest of the family soon, as I am sure once I tell them all about the stay they will be so jealous.
Thank you everyone for an amazing and relaxing stay.

A lovely hotel. Modern features in a historic building. The staff was wonderful. Couldn't have been more helpful. The morning breakfast buffet was delightful. They have a lovely courtyard and the rooms facing the courtyard enjoy a french balcony. There is a power center that accommodated all power cords. Fantastic rain shower head. Even a television set built in to bathtub wall. The location was so nice. Near the Thames, underground. Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden an easy walk. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful lobby and all the fresh flowers?

Room Tip: 416 and 425 beautiful suites

Thank you for your kind review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London, it certainly sounds like you had the opportunity to enjoy many of the facilities the hotel has to offer. GA Design have very cleverly combined the original grand hotel features with modern design to produce a stunning first impression. We are really appreciative of your comments regarding the Corinthia team, especially as we pride ourselves on always going the extra mile and exceeding our guest’s expectations. The buffet breakfast in The Northall is exceptional, offering a wide variety of options including fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals, cold meat and fish platters as well as a full English. The Courtyard is unique amongst central London hotels, offering an open air area for al fresco eating and drinking, with two open fires to warm up the cooler days. All of the bedrooms come complete with an international connection power centre with en suite underfloor heated marble bathrooms with separate rain showers and built in LCD-TV as standard. The location of the hotel is ideal for both the business and leisure traveller, within walking distance of many of London’s iconic sights, with over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius and adjacent to a central transport hub. The fresh flowers throughout the hotel are indeed magnificent, we now have visitors who come in just to see our displays. We very much look forward to welcoming you again soon when you may want to experience out two international restaurants or enjoy a relaxing day in our ESPA Life spa.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

My wife booked us a suite at the Corinthia for my birthday. Loved everything about it. The rooms and public areas all speak of no-expense spared luxury without tipping into bling. The whole place has been very stylishly designed. Service by pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Two fantastic bars (grand, stunning bar to start the evening off, and cosy jazz cafe bar for the end of the night. Excellent location. I'm not generally a spa person, but the spa here lives up to the hype: a genuinely blissfully calm and relaxing place.
Beats the socks off Claridge's and the Dorchester.
Very highly recommended. I loved it.

Room Tip: We had a suite - well worth it. Huge, bigger than many London flats.

Thank you for posting your review of your experience at Corinthia Hotel London, what a fabulous birthday treat to stay in one of our large luxurious suites. The Corinthia London was designed by GA Design, who have produced a hotel of exceptionally beautiful design with meticulous attention to detail, especially the Lobby Lounge which makes a magnificent first impression with the thousand and one crystal Bacarrat chandelier. The hotel has four great destination bars, Massimo Oyster Bar, The Northall bar, The Lobby Lounge and Bassoon art-deco jazz-age inspired bar. The location of the hotel is ideal for both sight-seeing and business, many of London’s iconic tourist sights are within walking distance, there are over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius and there is an adjacent transport hub of Charing Cross rail and Embankment tube stations. ESPA Life spa is the ultimate place to relax and rejuvenate with four floors of marble luxury, a Thermal Floor, a next generation gym and seventeen treatment pods with expert therapists. We are really pleased you loved staying with us and we cannot wait to welcome you once more.
