I booked this hotel for a friday to sunday stay for myself and my wife as part of her 50th Birthday as she wanted to go to some of Londons museums. When we got the Taxi from Kings Cross station and the driver had never heard of it I wondered if I had made a mistake, however from the moment we pulled up outside the hotel and were met by the very helpful and cheerful doorman dressed immaculately I new I had done well. Check in went smoothly and we were escorted to our room again by the doorman, he showed us in to what I would describe as a first class room, and did not linger expecting a tip.
During the weekend we recieved a gift basket of fruit and all the staff were beyond reproach, The bar was pleasant and relaxed, just one point of note a service charge is automatically added to your bar bill.
We didnt use the restaurant because we were out and about and ate in a different place every meal, all within walking distance of the V and A, Science museum and the Museum of natural history. I lovely place to stay in a very good location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Learning from history. Leaving a legacy. ‘Xenia’ expresses the ancient Greek concept of hospitality. It harks back to a time when people believed the Gods lived among them. So an encounter with a stranger was characterised by kindness and those far from home were warmly welcomed as friends - it was an extraordinary level of courtesy we're proud to prolong today. Defined by courtesy, refined by culture is our living motto; from the front desk staff who greets guests with a friendly smile, a Concierge team who are always on hand to help, at Xenia we offer a distinctive level of luxury. The hotel comprises 99 rooms individually appointed, two contemporary bars, a private dining room, meeting rooms and Evoluzione, a fine dining Italian restaurant that is in a class of its own. ... more less
