“Very good hotel but bit expensive !”
Reviewed August 27, 2009

Been for the second time to the Ic Londen and again a very good service! The Superior room has a partial view of Hyde park and is very small! Their must be a difference of 4 square meters ( Classic room 18 m² , Superior room 22 m² ) But their is no difference only the " view " . Normally their were 3 doorman two months ago but now non. Maybe they are saving ? But I will go their again if their is a promotion of something because the full price is really expensive !

Spend a week in late august last year at this hotel, this was my fourth time in 6 years. The staff is very attentive and always ready to help you at a seconds notice. Rooms are comfy and very clean. Nice television set, choices of movies and programs, Excellent minibar with lots of goodies for the late nighter. The Club Level has to be one of the best from the Intercontinental Hotels. A good size lounge, with cook to order breakfast or self serving buffet, a mix of arab and international food makes for interesting and savory choices. The staff of this concierge or Club level are the best I have encounter in many Club level visits. The hotel also has a nice bar and a very good fusion style restaurant, a bit pricey, but what is not in London. Picadilly Street is just across the hotel, as well as a beaufitul park and many of London's attractions withing walking distance. My experience was excellent and this will be my hotel of choice next time I travel to London Again.

I stayed there 28-Jun till 5-July-2009… Room 873 and I will never stay there again for many reasons…
Room has very bad view (inside the building), old furniture, poor cleanness level … Reception staff promised me to change it after 2 days of stay but they didn’t. Most of staff are not friendly specially the door man and a guy in the restaurant.
The only advantage is the fabulous location but in same area there are better hotels like Hilton and JW Marriot.

We had a great deal here for 2 rooms, but it felt like since we received this price break, our stay would match the price. The location is good and the rooms are very nice.....however, this is not a 5 star hotel. We had just stayed at the IC Amstel and the San Fransisco Mark Hopkins, where they bent over backwords to help and make our stay pleasant. This is definitely a business hotel. We saw many people " doing deals" in the lounge, the restaurant..etc. They were catered too. The staff is nice but not very helpful. We saw the business patrons being catered to, while we felt secondary. There were almost no families, fair enough, but if you are a business hotel, make that more apparent in your adds. I called for turn down one time and never received it. ( At the Amstel, they not only came for turndown on a regular basis but left treats, water and other amenities ).
I copied this from another review since it seemed to reflect my experience (This hotel might appeal to business travelers. Didn't see many other families. From other reviews it appears the suites and executive rooms are nice, and perhaps the staff is more accomodating to the patrons of those rooms).

I am a plat Ambassador I have stayed at the Intercontintal in London before and i must commend the Reception staff at check in and check out for being friendly and helpful. I received a double upgrade to a very nice room which was spacious, clean and a very comfy bed. The only complaint i have is that for the 2 days i had breakfast in the restaurant the service was terrible as in no staff and badly managed resulting in me having to beg for some coffee and also having my breakfast taken away whilst i was up at the buffet bar. Also the quality of food at breakfast has nosedived as last year it was outstanding but i did notice that the selections are less and the quality of products have been downgraded. But i would gladly come here again minus the breakfast

Husband was on business, so I joined him with our two teenage sons for one week. Booked two rooms, as they can only accomodate a max of three people in one standard room, utilizing a roll away. We were able to get adjoining rooms, even though the hotel was full. Rooms and bathrooms are on the small size. Nothing special. The usual four star amenities. Not much storage room, no place for suitcases. We were there for a week, and ended up stumbling around our "stuff" and each other and one can just forget about sharing the bathroom.
The rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff did a good job.
We utlilized the 7th floor lounge which had a stunning view and offered a fabulous selection of hot breakfast items, plus the usual continental fare. Offered sandwiches at "tea time" and cocktails with a beautiful canape plate in the evenings. The lounge staff were "present" but certainly not attentive.
Very convenient location. Walk to shopping and many tourist sites or take the subway from Hyde Park corner.
This hotel might appeal to business travelers. Didn't see many other families. From other reviews it appears the suites and executive rooms are nice, and perhaps the staff is more accomodating to the patrons of those rooms. Five stars? The hotel is, well, fine, but not worthy of five stars in my opinion, thus the average rating.
