Nurmijarvi, Finland12 contributions1 helpful vote
The location was excellent, couple of minutes walk to underground station with the lines from Heathrow and circle/district lines to centrum (20 min to tower). Lot's of different type restaurants nearby. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good typical English breakfast with warm dishes. The room was the one which lowered stars. Bit old and has seen the best days. No separate bed lights only normal lights up on the roof. And no electric outlet side bed. The Windows are not so tight. In the wind the outer window banged and caused some noise. Also traffic noises came from street side rooms. ( Have been earlier on same hotel and then the room windows wwre inside and was quiet)

Dear mahtiukko, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our hotel and for highlighting the great location and the friendly, helpful nature of our staff. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the convenience of our proximity to the underground station and the variety of restaurants nearby, as well as our breakfast offerings. However, I am sorry to learn that your room did not meet your expectations. We aim to provide comfortable and well-maintained accommodations for all our guests, and it seems we fell short in your case. Your comments regarding the room's condition, lack of bedside lighting and accessible electrical outlets, and the issue with window insulation are all points we take seriously. We are continually working on updating and improving our facilities, and your feedback is invaluable as it helps us identify areas that need attention. I have noted your concerns about the noise from the street and the window issues. We will inspect the windows in the rooms you described to ensure they are properly sealed and to address any maintenance issues that may contribute to noise disruption. Thank you once again for your feedback, and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and provide a more satisfying experience. Warm regards, Aleksandr Rogovski Front Office Manager

As I am disabled I've been looking for an affordable hotel in my price bracket. The facilities are great, the staff excellent and its in a brilliant location just of Gloucester Road Tube, ensuring ease of travel across London. But more importantly for me, its close by to several West End theatres, which I frequent. Its also in walking distance of the best resturant in London Myrtle Restaurant Chelsea.

Manchester, United Kingdom1 contribution
A good hotel but not amazing. We stayed there for an Easter break, myself and my partner. The hotel is in a great location with easy access of the underground etc. Lots of museums nearby and the Royal albert hall all in walking distance. The staff at reception were very helpful and the reception itself is warm and inviting. The rooms were the only negative having a fridge that was useless and the bed wasn't the most comfortable. We slept OK but that's about it. The finishing (grouting, sealant etc) weren't done to the highest of standards which detracted from what could have been a slightly higher rating.

Dear guyadamhenry, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us over the Easter break. I'm glad to hear that you found our location convenient for accessing museums, the Royal Albert Hall, and the underground. It's also great to know that our reception staff were helpful and you found the reception area warm and inviting. However, I regret to hear about the issues you experienced with your room, particularly the fridge and the comfort of the bed. Providing a comfortable and well-equipped room is fundamental to a good hotel experience, and it seems we missed this mark. Additionally, your comments on the finishing touches like grouting and sealant are noted. These details are important, and we will address them with our maintenance team to ensure our standards are consistently met. We appreciate your honest feedback, as it guides us in improving our services and facilities. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and provide a more comfortable and satisfying experience, reflecting the higher standards we aspire to achieve. Warm regards, Aleksandr Rogovski Front Office Manager

Dear preetyadi, Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns regarding the charges for your recent stay. I would like to provide some clarity on this matter. Upon reviewing your reservation details, I found that your booking was made under a non-cancellable and non-amendable rate. This policy, which was agreed upon at the time of booking, stipulates that any changes or cancellations would unfortunately still incur the full cost of the reservation. This includes situations where the stay is shortened, as was the case with your visit. I understand that this can be frustrating, especially when travel plans change unexpectedly. Our front desk team aims to provide clear and accurate information regarding reservation policies, and I regret if there was any misunderstanding or lack of clarity communicated to you during your stay. While we adhere to our booking policies to ensure fairness and consistency for all guests, we also value your patronage and feedback. If there's anything further we can assist you with regarding this matter, or if you would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly. Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you better in the future. Warm regards, Aleksandr Rogovski Front Office Manager

Dear bowlandflyps, Firstly, I would like to extend my sincerest apologies for the disruption caused by the fire alarm during your recent stay with us. I understand how distressing and inconvenient this must have been, especially at such an early hour, and I regret the impact it had on your weekend. The safety and well-being of our guests are paramount, but it is equally important to manage such incidents with clear communication and appropriate follow-up. I am concerned to hear that you did not receive an apology or an explanation from our staff at the time, as this is not the standard of care we strive to provide. Please be assured that we take your feedback very seriously and are addressing this matter internally to ensure better handling and communication in any future incidents. We are committed to not only maintaining safety protocols but also ensuring that our guests feel supported and informed at all times. I would like the opportunity to discuss this matter further with you and to find a way to make amends for your experience. Please feel free to contact me directly at the hotel. We value your feedback, and it is our hope to restore your confidence in our hotel. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we hope to have the opportunity to better serve you in the future. Warm regards, Aleksandr Rogovski Front Office Manager

Not what I thought I was signing up for. Room was really small. All the common areas ok. Breakfast could have had a better selection. Not as good as other Radisson’s I have stayed at recently. Unless you needed this location you might get better value in another Radisson somewhere else in London.

Cramlington, United Kingdom28 contributions23 helpful votes
The Vanderbilt is ideally located for exploring London, right next to Gloucester street tube station, and is exactly what you’d expect from Radisson Blu hotel, immaculately clean, the rooms without being huge are big enough, the beds are very comfortable with the best pillows ever, the one down side was when we walked into the room there was a strong smell of drains, but with a full schedule ahead of us we hoped it was temporary and carried on with the trip. Upon returning to the hotel at 11:15pm we went to the bar only to be told the bar was closed, we were not offered the opportunity to have a drink as hotel guests, which seemed usual ? The breakfast at the hotel was superb and set us up for the day. I’ve stayed in a lot of Radisson Blu hotels and this one did not disappoint, except for the drain smell, which was even worse upon our return in the evening, we did report this to the hotel staff in the morning and they seemed genuinely shocked by it. The most stand out part of the visit to the hotel was the front of house reception staff, Stephanie and Janet who were two extremely pleasant, polite and helpful young ladies, and a credit to the hotel. Would I stay here again…..definitely, despite to drains which I’m sure would be a temporary issue and not enough to spoil our visit.

If you are planning a trip to London, you should really make this your hotel of choice. The staff is amazing, they are friendly, curious and professional! we had a medical emergency (off hotel property) while visiting London, the staff told us what hospital to go to, made every attempt to assist us and make the rest of our stay as easy as possible. Also, go and see Cecelia who runs the morning breakfast! She is amazing, gives the best service, and cares about the satisfaction of her customers! the hotel is just really great!

The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, and you will feel welcome here. Their restaurant is excellent, and they serve a hearty and delicious breakfast buffet. It is also in a convenient location very close to the Tube, museums, and shops. This is an older building, and the layout of the floors can sometimes be a little difficult to navigate with big bags (there is an elevator, but for some of the rooms you have to use some steps to get there after you reach your floor). Otherwise the rooms are comfortable and functional, and the staff do a good job looking after things. It is a great place to stay.
