“Great Location, Quality Hotel”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Spent 2 nights at the Grand Hotel in Northumberland Avenue just this weekend gone.

Check in was quick, only paid £65 per night for two of us on Laterooms and then when we paid £15 to upgrade our room. This put us on the top floor (9th) which was very quiet with great views over the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and over toward Battersea Power station.

The 9th floor had water and ice machines in the hallways, tea, coffee, sugar, iron and ironing boards in a "Guest Cupboard" near to the lift, basically just help yourself.

The hotel entrance and reception give the impression of exclusivity and are very well decorated. Very similar to the room, whcih was in superb condition with large LCD Satellite TV, cordless phone, digital temperature control, fridge etc

Services on offer even went as far as a "Grocery purchasing request" where the hotel would collect a set list of groceries (for example a 440ml can of Stella was I think £1.80).

Location is fantastic, just round the corner to charing cross station and underground.

Trafalgar square is literally 30 seconds walk away, then onto the tube and you're on one of the main lines to most attractions. The London Eye and houses of parliament are 5 minutes walk away too.

If you want a comfortable, quality hotel, in the centre of London I would absolutely recommend getting a deal on the Grand and try to negotiate an upgrade when you get there.

Room Tip: Didn't even notice if it had a Gym, Spa or Swimming Pool to be honest. Pay £15 to get a Studio...

Perfect location of the hotel right near Trafalgar Square and all other main London sightseeings. All necessary modern conveniences are provided in full plus such nice little accessorize like plug adaptor and umbrella. Not intrusive service allows you to take as much of bathroom amenities as you need.Definitely recommend!

The location of this hotel is perfect for visiting all attractions in central London, you can walk everywhere. It was welcoming, relaxing and the rooms had everything you would expect to a high standard.

Club quarters is a great facility, excellent value for money, friendly and attentive staff. Business area can be noisey with many new companies using it as very cheap premises with free internet. Lounge area is spacious and comfortable. Bar is a little cramped even thoughvit is open plan. Discount card brings bar to local pub prices. Highly recommended for informal meetings.

Perfect location - walking distance to houses of parliament, southbank centre, leicester square, not forgetting trafalgar square.

Hotel felt safe, very welcoming and relaxing. Room was totally clean and pleasant - I got a late deal and although the bathroom was a little tired (chrome worn off taps etc) it was completely clean. Room was a good size too - not huge but big enough.

Hotel is in a great location. Close to Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, and so much more. Rooms were nice. Especially loved the purified water available on every floor with bottling stations to take for a day out.
