Just a few minutes walk from the Houses of Parliament, great spot for seeing the sites. Well worth booking an executive room which then gives you access to the executive lounge (breakfast, soft drinks through the day, alcoholic drinks and canapes for a couple of hours in the evening) Executive room was on 12th floor so great views. Room clean, wifi, MAC for internet and tv. Only downside it was a shower only and not a bath. Friendly staff. Restaurant food good (look for offers - I found a deal before we booked which made it very good value!) Hotel site was running a special offer for summer stays so check there before booking. Overall would recommend to anyone wanting a hotel close to the sites, get your walking shoes on!

Mohamed one of the concierge/bell staff was very knowledgable and friendly. He recommended great restaurants and gave great walking directions. The hotel is in a great location. Very near underground (Pimlico Station)!and the river. We will be staying there again.

Visited London to see the sites with my girlfriend. Picked this hotel as it was quite central and reasonably cheap. In hindsight, realised that being central isn't that important if you're near a tube station; the nearest one to here is about 15 minute walk which is ok (unless it's raining!). Rooms were lovely, staff couldn't have been more helpful and got a nice warm cookie when we arrived. Ate at the restaurant one night and was pleasantly pleased at the quality of the food. Would definitely go back.

We wanted to take a weekend trip to London in May 2014, The DoubleTree John Islip Street had a good deal so we booked it. First impressions are good, You get the delicious cookie, great after a day of work and a flight.
The room was sufficient for our needs and was kept clean, The beds were comfortable and I especially liked the big computer that turned into a TV.
Location is quite good too but late at night it is quite easy to miss.
Breakfast was GREAT, One of the best breakfasts I have ever had.
We will certainly stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days the first part of July, 2014. We had an Executive level room and were very pleased with the room, hotel, service and location of the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and there are some very nice pubs within walking distance of the hotel. There was construction going on around the hotel, which concerned both my wife and I upon check-in. However, the construction did not start until 8:00AM and it always ended by 5:30PM.

The hotel is well contructed which lends itself to a pretty quite nights sleep. The rooms are not cheap. However, the executive level rooms come with complimentary hot breakfast (which was very good) and free snacks and drinks (beer and wine) in the evening. If you can take advantage of the executive lounge, the cost becomes more reasonable.

If you are looking for raucus night life and partying, this hotel is not for you. If you are looking for a clean, friendly, well located, quiet hotel then this is the place for you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay at this property again.

Great location for our short stay in London. Short walk to tube at Pimlico station and to Westminster (Big Ben etc)
Nice tree lined street but new buildings being constructed next door and across the road although no noise issues. Spent some time watching the crane and the operator. Breakfast was included with our booking and there was a good selection of food. There is a lounge bar upstairs and a nice waiting area in the lobby.
Short walk to shops and cafés.

Room Tip: Our room on the 9th follow as great.
