This overnight stay was a Christmas gift for my husband. Such an amazing find! Stunning hotel, old with beautiful period features, but also very tastefully renovated with all the mod cons you could wish for. Super service from checkin, to bar, breakfast and checkout. All the staff were lovely. The room was spotless, really comfortable and the bathroom was perfect. Cocktails at the beautiful bar were delicious and the breakfast in the gorgeous dining room was too. Couldn’t fault any of it.

Stayed for one night at the LaLit for a little couple get-away and couldn't have been happier. It's a beautiful hotel with a lot of attention to detail and even the cheapest room which we booked was gorgeous. Everything is very clean and it's not tattered like a lot hotel rooms are nowadays. The staff were very attentive, and service was very quick. Add the prime location near Tower Bridge to it and you've got a great hotel option which is not overly expensive.

Currently here and yes the hotel is beautiful, although I probably wouldn’t stay here again during the pandemic. We are staying over New Year so understand you pay a premium, but most people understand nowadays you pay for an experience not just the hotel room. But it seems at this moment in time, all you pay for is the hotel room, £700 might I add for two nights….for a bed…have to laugh. I would consider another option at this moment in time as other hotels with the same price tag (some cheaper) have restaurants, gym, spa and room service available. They probably have a la carte breakfasts available too, the breakfast was pretty dreadful. We don’t mind a buffet breakfast but if you compare buffets to what you have at premier inn, sorry, but premier inn trumps Lalit. Which is really frustrating! Hot food was only scrambled egg, bacon, sausage, beans and mushroom. The pastries were small, look like they’d been stood there all evening, the kind of multipacks you pick up at Tesco with 12 in a pack. It lacked, It was really really disappointing. For £700 and the restaurant and every other service the hotel has to offer being closed, you would think that an a La carte breakfast would be available, it’s a shame as we feel really robbed. It would be nice to see the hotel in all its glory, but if you are considering to come here I personally wouldn’t until the other services reopen.

The Hotel is perfectly situated for Tower Bridge and Butler’s Wharf. It’s closest tube is London Bridge. The hotel is in a large grand old grammar school. The restaurant is very beautiful but currently only open for breakfast (£25 per person) and High Chai (afternoon tea). The spa is also closed due to Covid. Check in was smooth and simple with Fabrice helping us with our bags. He was very helpful throughout our stay. Our senior classroom was clean and tidy. The bathroom was stunning and the shower was great. The toilet is heated and there is a good range of amenities. The complimentary mini bar was a lovely gesture and had soft drinks only in it. It was perfect for us. The staff couldn’t do enough for you. Any request at anytime of day or night was possible. The only downside was we decided to have a few drinks in the bar, then we realised how expensive they were. We had a 15% off voucher but the bar staff only actually deducted 10% even after a discussion with him. The Rose Martini however is a must! We would definitely stay here again, but eat and drink elsewhere.

Dear Guest, Namaskaar! Thank you for the feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay with The LaLit London. We are sorry that few of the services are still closed or operating at reduced levels due to the various Covid Related issues. We are hoping to resume all the services soon after this new Covid is also out of our lives. We are sorry that there was an issue in the billing in the bar which will be addressed to the team. We are thankful for the feedback about the team and their efforts during the stay. We look forward to welcome you again soon.
