Reviewed April 9, 2007

We recently returned from our visit to London. The Conrad Hilton was a highlight and so classy. We loved the 2 room suite hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from front desk to conceirge to waitstaff. Everyone was very efficient. The rooms were clean and spacious. Toiletries were nice and the shower was the best we had all week. Beds were most comfortable. Other posts mentioned the Heathrow flight path, but we didn't seem to find this a problem inside the hotel. The only drawback is the distance from London central - but the local bus #11 for 2 pounds each made it easy to get into London and get off as desired. Food items were a bit pricey - but then so is most of London. This is a first class operation and I would definately stay here again.

I booked at the last minute using Hilton Honours points - we asked for a high floor room on the marina, but they were full. Instead we were given a really great suite - 703. The view from the balcony was straight down the river to the London skyline. Check in was prompt and very courteous. The concierge parked my car without being asked - our luggage was brought up to the suite within 5 minutes.

The suite was excellent. Gracious in style, large and well appointed. Nice touch to have a second bathroom.

Things about the room I liked: two balcony's from both bedroom and living room; well designed, newly decorated; nice artwork on the walls, coffee station; great bathroom with full range of cosmetics and ameneties & a very powerful seperate shower; vase of flowers; great bed - very comfortable; very efficient and quiet aircon; TEAK CD system; big fluffy robes; amazing views across London.

Not so great things about the room: sofa was stained - should be replaced in a 5* hotel, or at least steam cleaned; TV's old and tired - one remote not working - get new ones guys.

Spa area is not the greatest - needs an upgrade. Pool OK, but nothing special - sauna and changing areas average. This is not a destination spa, but does have dedicated lift from geust floors.

We ate in the Aquasia restaurant - very good meal and very reasonably priced - £125 for two including wine and cocktails, but the ambience of the dining room is very corporate Hilton and not Conrad or Four Seasons standards by any means, but the view across the Marina is good and the service was excellent.

Housekeeping is exemplary - extremely clean room and the turndown service is wonderful - ice bucket topped up, towels all replaces, bed remade and charming service.

Overall this does deserve its five star rating, but a four seasons it is not. However, depsite being on the outskirts of central London, it is a delight to come back here after the busy city.

An excellent hotel, with negligable issues that deserves to be five star, but the Conrad chain from my experience, has a long way to go to match four seasons levels of quality and service.

Stayed here with children over Easter and it was truely wonderful. last year at Easter i had to check out of the Dublin Hilton early this year in London you just wanted it to go on and on.
Location 5 mins walk from Kings Rd Chelsea, easy bus ride to Victoria or Harrods,
15 mins walk or £5 in a taxi to Fulham Broadway tube station,
2 mins walk to water taxi to Westminister,
yet far from the crowds of London easy to relax in lovely pool area with sauna and steam rooms, take a walk around the harbour, enjoy a drink in the bar or for a less expensive drink a local pub 200yrds away.
the rooms are huge, we had Harbour view, private balcony,living room with pull out sofa bed, work desk, seperate toilet, a bedroom with dressing area, full bathroom, loads of luxury items, nightly turn down service with bottles of water left and a range of cleaning products for your shoes etc.
buffet breakfast which as gold h/honours was included for free was wonderful, fruits, cereal, salmon, fresh baked breads etc etc etc.
free internet in the business centre.
staff very helpful
overall a luxury hotel. only complaint drinks a bit pricey but you dont have to buy them and everything else more than made up for that
well done Hilton

I booked this hotel through Asia rooms.com and got a fantastic rate for 2 rooms. My colleague and I stayed 2 nights on business.

Rooms: All suite hotel, spotlessly clean, great seating area and even has a cloakroom as well as the toilet in the bathroom, very comfy beds, great bathroom with a bath and separate power shower, again very clean.

Staff: Reception helpful and polite, concierge also friendly. However we were both very surprised to find the restaurant allows smoking anywhere which spoilt my breakfast and when I complained about it and asked to be moved away from the smokers I was met with indifference, like it was my fault for not smoking! Shame, as the restaurant has a lovely view overlooking the harbour.

Location: Away from central London, so quite different from say staying in Mayfair or Knightsbridge, but Kings Road is a stones throw away.

I have one big moan and that is if you get stuck with a room with odd numbers, i.e. we were in 419 and 421 you won't get much sleep! I had the worse 2 nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel. There is a railway line very close to one side of the hotel and it kept me awake at night and woke me up at 4am in the morning. Also the hotel is under the Heathrow flight path as well!
I mentioned to reception on checkout about the trains - yes I should have done it earlier - and they told me that the hotel was half empty and they could have moved us. I was quite annoyed by this as if that was the case, why did they put us in those rooms in the first place? The other side would be much quieter.

I would stay there again, however would ask for a room away from the train side.

Got this hotel on priceline for £125 per room per night including taxes etc (bid £105 per night, but the above was the cost including taxes).

Positives: Lovely rooms - this is an all suite hotel, so all rooms have a lounge, hall and bedroom. Great service - staff here all seemed very friendly. Concierge - great for booking theatre tickets at the last minute and saved us a lot of time. Great bathrooms with powerful showers. Nice restaurant overlooking the harbour. Room service breakfast was very good. Nearby King's Road has some great shops and restaurants.

Negatives: Booking through priceline won't get you the best room available - we booked two interconnecting rooms, and both were either side of the lifts, so a bit noisy. Prices for food etc extremely high - eg, breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children in room - £99, bottle of coke from mini bar £3.50, dinner for 2 adults and 2 children, including a relatively cheap bottle of wine - £250. A bit out of the centre of London, and nearest tube is 20 minutes walk - so taxi costs can quickly add up. Only one restaurant - no cafes even - would have expected more dining options in a five star hotel. Noise was an issue - the hotel seems to be below a flight path, and we were woken by planes during the night.

Would we stay there again? Probably in the Summer (the location would be very pretty in the summer), if we wanted to visit that area of London, and could get another great deal, but we would think twice about staying there again primarily to visit central London attractions.

The Conrad is still a very classy hotel, despite the fact that the rooms (whilst still very nice and in my opinion still 5 star) are a little more traditional than some of the swanky newer hotels. i.e The rooms do not have flat screen TV's or DVD players. The bathrooms also look a little tired compared to some of the more recent hotels. That said it is a great hotel and is one of the places where you are guaranteed to see famous faces !

Loved this hotel. I have stayed at a number of 5 star hotels and service was by far the best I've ever encountered here. Staff couldn't do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. Staff at 5 star hotels are often strangely very snooty but there wasn't a sniff of this at the Conrad.

Room was quite simply 'wow'. Huge with various areas and rooms and a large balcony with breathtaking views of London. We could see the London Eye, Battersea Power Station etc. from our balcony plus our room overlooked Chelsea Harbour, which looks lovely at night when it's all lit up. Masses of space, big bathroom, pleasant decor and spotlessly clean. Loved the little touches in the bathroom like having nail scissors, nail clippers which you don't usually get.

Chelsea is a lovely base. It's not in central London but it's worth coming slightly out of the centre for the peace & quiet and pleasant surroundings at Chelsea Harbour plus shopping and eating out is great around the Kings Road. There is also a regular water taxi right by the hotel which will drop you into central London within 10 minutes.

Food is excellent although maybe a little overpriced but couldn't fault the quality of the food or service.

We will definitely be returning and can't wait for our next visit.
