“Already booked again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Really lovely hotel, not slap bang in the middle of all the main sights but right easy to get anywhere with the tube station directly opposite. Modern, clean rooms, air con was a godsend, very friendly and helpful staff. Not the cheapest you'll find in London but good quality at a fair price. We've already booked to return!

An overnight stay in the Crowne Plaza, Blackfriars was just what was needed as we passed through London. We checked in to a beautiful room with a view over the River Thames, clean, light and airey, excellent mini bar and access to their Club Lounge which we took advantage of before dinner in their resident Italian restaurant Diciannove - and continental breakfast the next morning. It was the perfect stopover.

Very pleased with this property. The room was more spacious than expected. Comfortable beds. Staff was pleasant. Edna, - or similar name - in housekeeping, was a delight as she greeted me each morning.
Quite pleased with the location. Right across from the Black Friars Station allowed easy access to the sights. A short walk over the bridge to the south bank of the Thames just outside hotel's door was convenient. Standing on the bridge in the evening was magical. All purpose corner store plus Starbucks right across the street.

Stayed here as had to over night in London, the room rate was extortionate due to London fashion week, I couldnt check in due to the system being down and as I was due at a meeting later that evening I had to be let in by a receptionist, and collect my key later that evening. The follwoing morning I tried to shower, it was a disaster, there was no power or heat and in the end I gave up.

This was our second stay at this hotel and once again all our expectations were exceeded. We stayed with Priority Club points and were upgraded to the Club floor. My husband has Platinum Ambassador status. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and met all our needs. We loved the quality toiletries and the comforts of the Club lounge. The hotel is located opposite the Blackfriars station and is near most of the London attractions. In the evenings we walked across the bridge over the river Thames to the opposite bank with it's many riverside restaurants.

Located on the South Bank of the Thames, the hotel is within walking distance of the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral. Across the street is the famous Blackfriars Pub (which has great burgers). Blackfriars Tube Station was just across the street as well, which was great for us as we spent lots of time traveling to different parts of London. Our room was clean and well kept. Unfortunately our window looked down on the hotel lobby instead of outside, but since we spent very little time in the room, didn't really matter. The concierge and the desk clerks were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was included with our room and was quite good considering it was buffet style with the usual items. The Old Cheshire Cheese pub is within walking distance and St. Bride's Tavern as well...love English pubs and pub food. Would definitely stay there again when in London.
