“A Wonderful Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We will definitely return to the Corinthia Hotel! To start off with, it's beautiful! Our room was contemporary as well as luxurious. The staff was excellent. Everyone that we dealt with was accommodating and extremely courteous. We had an interior room with a balcony. It was quiet and bright. The executive room has a foyer which is also nice to have. It's nice to know that you've found a hotel that you feel comfortable in and look forward to coming back. Everything about the hotel...staff, rooms, food, etc. is excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed at the beginning of our trip as well as the end of it. We stayed in 331 as well as 231...

Thank you for posting a kind review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. You are right, it is indeed a very beautiful hotel, which has been designed to meet the needs of the twenty-first century traveller combining the best of modern design with luxury. Your compliments about the service are very much appreciated as we always attempt to exceed every guest’s expectations. The Courtyard view rooms are exceptionally quiet, especially for a hotel in central London, and come complete with a Juliet balcony, for a real room with a view. We are very much looking forward to your definite return.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

London hotels always seem to be full at this time of year. And, if they are not full then they are certainly overpriced. So, it was with some trepidation that I arrived at the Corinthia yesterday evening.

I need not have worried.

I could not have been more warmly welcomed - greeted at the taxi door and ushered to reception, upgraded to an executive room, where my luggage arrived, efficiently, shortly after I did.

My room was one of the best I have stayed at in London - spacious, quiet, and decorated to a high standard. The aircon was efficient and silent and the gadgetry was impressive. My only disappointment was that the free wifi connection was painfully slow.

The bathroom was certainly the best I have had in London - spacious, spa-quality toiletries (my room was next door to the Spa - room 521), a walk in shower and a roomy bath with its own TV screen.

I had reason to test both housekeeping and room service - both were prompt and efficient and, unusually, when I dialled, knew me by name and room number. Sometimes it is the simple things.....

The sirloin steak I had from room service was also the best I have ever had in a London hotel. My compliments to the chef.

Room Tip: I would recommend room 521. It doesn't have a view but is very quiet and comfortable.

Thank you for your lovely review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. Your comments and feedback are very much appreciated and it sounds like you had a very smooth and comfortable visit. All of our rooms are larger than average for central London hotels, and have the finest fixtures and fittings, including complimentary Wi-Fi, which is normally the fastest at 1Gb. The under-floor heated marble en-suite bathrooms come complete with ESPA Life toiletries, Frette dressing gowns and slippers, separate rain showers, and a huge bath tub with built in LCD-TV. The in-room dining menu combines the best of dishes from our two restaurants, Italian cuisine from Massimo Restaurant and the best of British fare from The Northall, as well as some extra dishes to appeal to our international guests. We will pass on your kind compliments to the chef and housekeeping. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon, when you may have the opportunity to stay longer and enjoy many of the other amenities the hotel has to offer.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

We were on our way home from 5star hotels in Como and Portofino Italy and still was incredibly impressed with the Corinthia. The hotel is beautiful! Every staff member went above and beyond, from check in, to check out. We even ran into an employee in the elevator who asked if we had seen the spa, and offered to give us a tour. Our room was the base rate, yet was very big- with every modern amenity- heated bathroom floors, overhead shower, very comfortable bed, coffee maker in the room. We were only able to stay for 24 hours, but we will definitely be back!

The perfect location! Off a quiet street yet near Trafalgar Square, the Thames River the tube and London Eye. A short walk to most of all the attractions and restaurants. The rooms were the perfect size with luxury linens and marble heated floors and towels. What we loved most were the extremely nice and always helpful concierges! Everything we wanted to do they were able to accommodate us.
We would stay here again... Fell in love with London because of the Corinthia Hotel!

The location of the hotel is perfect for both the business and leisure traveller, with many of the great sights of London within a short walking distance, easy access to a central transport hub, and near to the West End for the best of theatres, opera houses and shopping. All of our rooms are beautifully appointed with the best quality fixtures and fittings, the linens are by Pratesi and the fluffy dressing gowns and towels by Frette, and ESPA Life toiletries in the large under-floor heated marble bathrooms.

We stayed three nights at the Corinthia in June and had a great time. We loved the location between Trafalgar Square and the Thames. Close to the action, yet on a quiet corner. We walked to Westminster Abbey, Churchill War Rooms, the National Gallery, Pall Mall, the Theater district, Horseguards Palace and The Mall. The Embarkment tube stop is a 2 minute walk. The hotel is lovely with a beautiful lobby where we had delicious tea served in gorgeous china. Our room was very comfortable and the spa is terrific. I had a good massage there and we used the thermal floor with steam room, sauna and gorgeous hot tub, the nicest we've ever seen. We were sorry we waited til the end of our stay to use it.

The gym is excellent. My husband is a gym rat and he was extremely satisfied with the choice of equipment. The concierge staff was extremely helpful and was able to get us two tickets to a very popular performance at a reasonable price. We will definitely return. We were thinking that in cold weather that thermal floor would be especially nice.

At night, go up on the nearby bridge over the Thames for a lovely view of the London Eye and Houses of Parliament.

Room Tip: We didn't have an amazing view, but I believe there are some that have a view of the London Eye.

Thank you for your charming review of your stay with us at Corinthia Hotel London, it sounds like you and your husband enjoyed a very special three days and had the opportunity to experience many of the facilities that the hotel has to offer. The hotel has an ideal location for the leisure traveller, with many of London’s iconic sights within walking distance, including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, it is also adjacent to a central transport hub for quick and easy access throughout the city, and has over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius. Afternoon Tea taken under the one thousand and one Bacarrat crystal chandelier in the stunning The Lobby Lounge is now a must-do activity in London, especially when it is served so prettily from a William Edward fine bone china tea service, and at the moment in the warm weather served alfresco in The Courtyard. We are very pleased that you did manage to experience ESPA Life at Corinthia spa, which is four floors of pure luxury, where you can indulge in a range of beauty, alternative, or therapeutic treatments. The Thermal Floor with a swimming and vitality pool, an amphitheatre sauna and steam room, and heated Cleopatra beds is super in Summer and warming in winter, the ultimate in indulgence and relaxation. The concierge team pride themselves on always going the extra mile to exceed every guest’s expectations. Your tips and compliments are very much appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you both back very soon.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

I rarely do reviews but my stay last month compelled me. I was traveling alone as a single woman. Sometimes this can be problematic. Lesser quality rooms, attempting to seat one at bad tables in restaurants etc. My experience at the Corinthia was stellar! Great room, exactly as presented. Quiet...Fabulous, COMFORTABLE bed! Wonderful bathroom! The hotel staff was uniformly on top of it. From Justin the concierge helping me plan my days & restaurants, to my lovely waiter at restaurant Massimo my first night, (I so wish I remembered his name!) & on to every encounter with room service, bell service, check in & out, door man etc.
I would love to thank all for such an outstanding stay!

In addition the location is so close to many wonderful sights, which are easily walkable.

I just wish there was a Hotel Corinthia in Paris! But when I'm next in London I'll be back!
