On the whole the hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable and ideally located close to Gloucester Road tube station and 20 minutes walk to Knightsbridge and Hyde Park. The room was generally clean and tidy however our premium room was not as advertised on the hotel website, our decor was tired and a little shabby, the shower tiles were heavily stained which was a shame. Daily housekeeping ensured the room was as good as it could have been. Dinner in the on site Restaurant was excellent, pity the same couldn’t have been said for the breakfast, cold over brewed coffee, Luke warm water for the tea and cold eggs on toast that at best was served on warmed up bread. We decided not to eat it and although breakfast was included in our rate we chose to pay for breakfast elsewhere during our stay. Also worth noting that we were billed and charged more for our stay that was advertised on the website at the time of booking, we had to ask for the extra to be refunded.

My wife and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt and the staff here really pulled out all the stops. Neil, the hotel manager and his deputy, Akil took time to speak with us and ensured that our room and overall experience in the hotel during our stay were to a very high standard. Breakfast is served in the restaurant at weekends and Massimo, our waiter, was absolutely wonderful in ensuring our fresh food was served hot and beautifully cooked by the Chef - nothing was too much trouble for him. The hotel bar is expertly managed by Dino and his colleague Adam - again both of these staff members were outstanding in their service. The reception team saw to our every need, arranging our travel plans to Hampton Court Palace and Kew Gardens and purchasing tickets for these locations ready for us upon arrival. Our hotel room was to a very high level and was exceptionally clean. The room was fully stocked with shampoos, conditioners, body cream and luxury bath and hand towels and complimentary waters,, tea and coffee befitting a hotel of this standard. The hotel is perfectly located near to Gloucester Road underground station and a short walk away from Harrods, Hyde Park and some wonderful nearby restaurants. The hotel was expertly managed to serve guests in the current unfortunate Covid circumstances and the hotel gym was available for our use if we wished. my wife and I stayed at this hotel in 2005 and it was great to return and find that the guest experience was main aim of the hotel staff. I highly recommend this hotel to you and the Vanderbilt is a fine advert for the Radisson Blu brand. Thank you all for making our stay so wonderful and memorable for all the right reasons!

I booked this hotel as a last-minute decision and I'm very happy that I did. The hotel is an extremely convenient location in London, as it is just across the road from Gloucester Road tube station. It is also a very short walk from the Natural History Museum & Science Museum, plus you can walk a little bit further should you wish to shop at Harrods. The concierge was absolutely fantastic, although I was not able to catch his name to pass on the praise. Very welcoming and very kindly showed me around the lobby, then escorting me to the lift. I stayed in the standard room and paid for breakfast (which is provided in a little box delivered to your room, at the time of your choosing). Whilst the room is a little small, it does not feel cramped and is more than enough for a few days away. The bathroom includes a bathtub, which I was very pleased about. My only gripe about the room was that there was some discolouration on the tiles in the bathroom.

We took our 7year old daughter to London for the first time to visit the natural history museum. I emailed ahead to explain this was her first stay in a hotel and asked if they could make it extra special. (They really did) On arrival the concierge (who was wonderful I didn’t get his name) was very friendly showed us to our family room 205 it was awesome had little staircase leading up to a large room with two beds. They had written a card to my daughter and left a box of Lindt chocolates on her bed! Her face was a picture, one very happy excited little girl. Thank you for making our experience so enjoyable. Great location for the museum 5 min walk and 2 min to nearest tube station. Perfect stay
