Not our first time here but always a good reliable hotel. Excellent location with an underground station right outside. Club lounge is good with a better offering than many other Crowne Plazas. Good Chinese restaurant and a smart cellar bar. Would recommend.

As a family of four we stayed in one room. The family rooms have 2 beds. One for adults and one for the kids. The rooms are generous in size, not just for London. You would be fine with one room. Enjoy your stay 😄

Dear rifkarachman, The bed in a standard is a regular double, and it is not advisable to reserve for 2 adults and 2 kids; the hotel does not allow this for health and safety risk. We do have standard twin room that accommodates a family comfortably. Hope this helps. Thank you.

"Club room are great"
"Black Friar pub nearby, good."
"You can choose to be away from elevators and higher floors or opt for quiet zones"
"Indicate that you do not want a room for disabled, because -if you don't- you may get one and everything will be at knee level."
"If you would like a quieter area the rooms on the 6th floor are club rooms, giving you access to the club lounge."
