I have stayed at this hotel over a dozen times as the location is suitable being close to Westfield and my usual places of interest. My last experience in late April 2017 was a complete disaster and sadly some of the issues have occurred during previous visits with no improvements at all. The room service and housekeeping staff lack basic...

Good location, quiet, clean rooms. Staff were helpful, friendly, professional. Executive Lounge was great. Close to bus line and good restaurants. Nice walk from hotel to downtown London. Knowledgeable concierge (Tim) and reservations man, Panu. Overall great stay thanks to Patricia Mahon (GM) and her fellow employees. Looking forward to our return.

Friendly staff, good location next to 1 of Europe's biggest shopping malls, excellent selection for breakfast however a bit slow at clearing the tables, rooms a little on the small side but adequate. Good value for what we paid.

Visited here for the weekend. The front of the building, lobby area and bar/restaurant are well maintained and modern however once you enter the hotel floors they are very dated including the rooms. The rooms are small enough and not much space to move around. The bathroom as well is not convenient for any person who is tall you could...

We arrived quite early so understandably the rooms were not ready yet, but the bellman took our luggage efficiently and held them at the concierge while we toured London. The rooms were on the small side but were clean and comfortable. Room service was tasty but a little overpriced, though I guess that's to be expected these days. The lobby...

Tiny room where two adult travelers had no space to un pack or move around. The loo had the same issue. The closets as well. And the loo door had been beaten to a pulp by slamming the entry door into it. IMHO this is not acceptable for a Hilton and not for a HiltonHonors member.

A hotel with great location (close to underground station) and friendly staff. The breakfast was good and service as well. Room was a bit small but it did not bother us. Clean room with Hilton quality. Food at the lobby restaurant was very good. And drinks too.

We were lucky to be upgraded to the executive floor which meant we could use the lounge. My husband has health issues so it was lovely to be able to have somewhere quiet to rest thoughout the day. The staff were very kind and caring. Thank you to MariaLuisa who looked after us. All the food we had was excellent...

The outside of the hotel isn't much to look at but the location is great. Really close to the Metro, a huge shopping mall, and great shops and restaurants. The hotel bar is very nice with a good beer selection, TV's, and a good staff. However, the rooms were disappointing. It felt and looked more like a Holiday Inn than...

My wife and I were on a night away from the kids on a mini London break. I found this hotel on the internet for £120 with breakfast. This gets you a queen size bed and a shower based on suite. The quality of everything is superb as you would expect from the Hilton brand. Good points: Quiet. Clean. Staff...
