One of the best locations in London for Tourists. Small rooms, not many amenities.
Perfect location for tourists Good for the price I wish they had a shuttle from/to Heathrow
Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice clean rooms.
The hotel was centrally located right near the Waterloo bridge, literally just steps away from the London Eye. Also conveniently located near the Covent Garden tube stop, making it very easy to travel between places throughout London and still be close to the hotel to recover. The room was nice, smaller than expected but still met my stay needs. Complementary prosecco wine and money to use at their restaurants is a bonus if booked directly with them. Take the £12 breakfast when you check in. It gets expensive if you feel like having breakfast at the hotel for several days at a time. The cost will cover you for your whole stay.
This is the best location in London, steps from Covent Garden, an easy walk across the Waterloo Bridge, convenient to theaters. Thanks to recent renovations, rooms are contemporary and comfortable; staff is friendly and helpful. I have been staying here off and on for more than 25 years! The food continues to be marginal at best, and not a good value for the money. Fortunately, there are many good and reasonably-priced restaurants nearby.
Good location but little loud at night. Extreamly uncomfortable and small bed and window without any view. Just location .
Friendly courteous staff and very clean hotel. The walking area around the bed is a little tight.
This hotel is in the heart of London. If you stay here you are close to everything. I was only in London for 2 days and wanted a Hotel that I would spend minimal time on travel getting to London's main attractions. If you are on a budget this hotel is one of the best available. If is a bit dated but I was in London to see the sights so I did not need my hotel to be state of the art. If you are traveling in the summer be aware that this hotel has no air conditioning. At least the room I stayed in had none.
I liked the location, and the clean, bright room that had good bathroom space and a reasonable work surface. Similarly priced rooms in London are often very cramped and/or quite worn down. a really nice (and necessary, in our case) feature of the room is the sliding solid wood shutters that completely seal off outside light. This was my third or fourth stay at the sph. The weatherstripping around the windows was completely shot and ineffective, so if we had the shutters open, a powerful draft whipped through the room. There was a cold snap in London at the time, so the result was that we couldn't open the shutters and curtains to enjoy daylight. Also, as our room was over The Strand, it was very noisy at night. However, I would definitely stay again
nothing very bad customer services ,rooms are very small,no air condition ,room was very hot ,this hotel not recommended at all ,i will never come back to this hotel at all .
Great location, easy check-in. Bar selection limited and drinks overpriced. Bellman also inflated cost of Healthrow Express and cab to Paddington Station in an effort to sell car service to Heathrow.
Peaceful room and comfortable beds. Harp being played as we arrived. Good location. We were needing a relaxing night before travelling to Lyon through the French rail strikes and we awoke refreshed and content. Thanks! Decor a bit over ornate in places. (Ribbons over pictures etc). Not much in fridge except someones left over lunch. Quite a surprise!
Overall stay was very comfortable except there was a very loud wedding party on Saturday night that didn't end till past 1:00am, but the hotel gave me a very generous discount for that night. Would also have liked more overhead lighting because the atmosphere in the room was rather dim!
The room was fantastic with view over the Thames, Bed very good and quite and the Hotel is tucked out of the way but in easy access to all of London We did not get a warm welcome at reception, They tried to put us in 2 single beds when I had booked river view doudle. They would not take my word so I had to go back to the car to get our booking. It is also hard to get a cab from this hotel.
good location, good service
rooms spacious and very clean. staff very helpful and friendly. well situated for site seeing and close commuting facilities to explore the rest of london. no spa facilities that i was made aware of.
Everyone is polite and not overbearing. The room although we felt is was quite small it was peaceful and very clean. The only point was a dirty wet cloth left on the wardrobe shelve which was a little unpleasant,
It would be a good 4 star hotel. good heating and hot showers. food was barely edible, always stale. reception service is appalling. In desperate need of refurbishment, old TVs, design. It was just a bed and a bathroom, not a 5 star hotel.
Good service Great location Breakfast buffet same everyday. Not much selection for 5 star luxury hotel. I stayed 13 nights and every morning same small selection of breakfast. There should be a lot more selection .
The welcome and service of all the staff. Everyone especially the Hungarian gentleman bent over backwards to make an extra effort every single time I approached them. More likely they approached me quicker, to help with my pushchair and baby. They were polite and fantastic. Your real asset!! The towels had an awful smell (I have a sensitive nose). My room was no 847. When I enetered the room I could smell the pigeons in fact I looked at the window sill and sure enough there was pigeon poo - and the windows hadn't been cleaned in some time? There was no child quilt / blanket provided with the cot (and, although the cot was provided, I had to ask for this to be made). The staff could be taught level one english.
The location was excellent. The room and bathroom were very nice.
The rooms were comfortable and we had a lovely view of the river and the lighted ferris wheel. The staff were courteous, professional, and responsive. The location is great. The concierge was quite helpful. Breakfast was great but if we had not obtained a good price including breakfast, the a la carte cost of adding on breakfast would not have been worth it. The hotel is lovely and we hope to stay there again. For about half of our stay the hotel telephone system was not working. The sink in one of our rooms was quite high and uncomfortable for our elder and short relative.
Location is perfect for the theater district. Staff is very friendly and accommodating indeed. Hotel is very elegant, a bit formal. Could be intimidating for a tourist from the US west. Got a good room rate, but drinks, tea, and breakfast were as expensive as you'd expect from a 5 star central London hotel. We ended up changing our room twice -- the first time at the suggestion of the bellman, because it didn't have any view. The second room had a view but was way smaller than the other, and had no bath tub. We were moved a third time at our request and got a wonderful room (but without a river view). The staff made both moves very easy indeed.
Design, city center location and friendly professional staff Internet connection ( slow ), airco on rooms did not work well
A very modern hotel in a fantastic central location. The room was small but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. No coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Refused entry to the Light Bar because we hadn't booked - since when did you have to book to have a drink in a bar? This also meant we couldn't actually use the vouchers for the complimentary cocktails!
A different experience. The staff greeted me by my first name which I like a lot. Interior design is cool, I loved candles in the bathroom. Couldn't log on to the Internet with my iPad although I was charged the Internet service - which was advertised as free upon booking :-(
This hotel is in the best location for theater, restaurants, shopping and art. We were two couples and had the best time. Everything was perfect
Great location. Nice hotel. Concierge always has solid recommendations. Good service. Love the room. Everything is modern with a lot of little touches. USB phone charger at the bed, Bluetooth for your music. I've been here 3 or 4 times and will go back! Currently remodeling. Shower leaked ....
Good location, friendly staff, stylish rooms
Unable to open windows and air conditioning is noisy and suffocating.
Service and the personal very nice food very good Aurel & Tabita Musca Will be nice that in price of the hotel to be include free breakfast
the restaurant concept, staff and service. breakfast - not clear information about the prices and poor value for money regarding breakfast. the films in the elevator - freeky.
Location, Design hotel Food is always getting less and less ( before there was steak, there was asian boxes ... ).
I am a Global Member; this is the reason I continue to stay at this gorgeous hotel in a city full of gorgeous hotels.
The staff were A1 and very helpful and the manager Jose was very proffesional Maybe a little too dark in the lift and l could not see the buttons to push
What's not to like! Everything was outstanding! The hotel staff couldn't be more friendly, anything you needed they got it for you! Just wish it wasn't so pricey otherwise we would go more often!
The Savoy stay was one of the most exceptional stays that I have had -- extraordinary from the moment the taxi door opened. I needed a rest and wanted to visit London, and the Savoy was worth every penny. Location is perfect. Food and service were outstanding -- didn't feel the need to leave for an outside restaurant. Breakfast, high tea and dinners were delicious. High Tea was conceivably the best I have every experienced. Room was like a cocoon, and their baths are legendary. Will be back soon for another break. I was disappointed that the spa and pool were closed for renovation.
very luxurious hotel in a good location of London. definately would go back to the hotel at my next visit. not much..
Spectacular in every way Not being able to stay longer
despite being over motor court, room was very quiet, everything was well designed, staff was extremely helpful, bathroom was tremendous, restaurant was great. Very little (if anything) to actually complain about. Top-notch. gym facilities were modest as was pool, but not a terribly big deal as most hotel gyms have a limited offer.
location the lifts were awful
The room and facilties were large for a London hotel at that room rate. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the robes that were provided The construction noise was very disruptive and precluded us from getting a good nights rest. The room was poorly designed with large furniture and made it difficult to move around the room comfortably.
The hotel is located right in the centre of London,ideal for theatres and shopping and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful, Rather expensive !
The courtesy of the staff was very good and one was made to feel nothing was a bother. The room was very comfortable. There was a fair amount of outside street noise in the room which took a night to get used to.
The staff was wonderful. The room was small and was located on the 1st floor - bad view.
excellent staff, very keen to please building work very noisy, breakfast expensive
We Loved Everything about the Radisson! You can not go wrong, the rooms are gigantic and with real king beds you get the most comfortable night sleep while in London out of anywhere! From the minute you walk in the door, the customer service is absolutely impeccable, they actually care about you, learn about you, remember you and it is so nice to feel that, especially after 12 hours of travelling across 8 time zones to get there. I give this Radisson 5 Stars and Highly Recommend to anyone searching! Cheers, to all the Staff, Liva, Annaise, and Anna for being super friendly! ~ Sammy Tovar
Location was excellent Rooms were not up to usual Radisson standards, Rooms were very small, bed was too short for tall people.
Very helpful staff also in a fantastic position for restaurants and shows.
Room was very quiet, despite overlooking Leicester Square. Fabulous location - very central Bed was too small - needed to be longer & wider!
For those that wish to make the most of going out in London during the evening, the hotel is the ideal location.Staff were very welcoming, at time a little too much.
The service and kind staff. 1. We booked a junior suite with "great view over London" and added to our booking request that this view was of the essence. The junior suite did not have such a view and the staff told us that no junior suite has such a view. Other rooms do. We feel mislead because an important part of the reason why we booked an expensive hotel/room was the view. 2. The hotel did not answer any of our 3 e-mails over a period of 2 months. 3. We called the hotel in order to double check our reservation. The reservation was not found and the hotel would call us back. They did not so we had to call them back.
Hotel design and great customer service as standard Bathroom toiletories are not to my taste
excellent hotel, fantastic location, all staff and services very professional!
Perfect location for New Year, everything in walking distance, close to Trafalgar Square, easy access to Embankment for fireworks and New Year day parade passed front door...not to mention the hotel festivities, plenty going on in a stylish, refined way. We were only there 24 hours but thanks to location, facilities, easy relaxed feel of the hotel it was the ideal intensive enjoyment hoped for.
The staff were very accomodating. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. n/a
Its position It is not true that airconditioning system is controlled from the room. Actutally the system is not strong enough when there is a very warm climate in uk.
Quality modern room with a great rain shower. The beds were luxurious. Light switch was confusing. Need separate switch for the bathroom.
A very friendly hotel
Great location to National Gallery, Piccadilly Square, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and gardens. Contemporary style, very comfy bed, staff polite and helpful. Free "slow" internet in the room-it was fast enough! Rain shower head. The shower was a bit small so the splashing water would sometimes puddle on the floor. No other complaints!
There are many things that i loved. Amongst it all the location is outstanding. The staff is a ++ The beds are so comfortable Its is just a bliss from a to z It is a bit expensive and my room was more of a regular room than a superior room
Staff very good,great location and good value for money.
We had a lovely week-end stay at the Sofitel London st James.The location is great, staff all very friendly .We had a really nice room and the bed was so comfortable.
Modern elegance this hotel is one of the finest I have stayed in. Contemporary design Incorporated into the old world charm and classic design of the building, The location is superb I really can't get any more central than this. The stuff are wonderful, right down to the doorman, I've stayed there four times in the past six months, and i must say, it's so nice when the doorman greats you and welcomes you back to the hotel.
Over charger $2k with a forced apology
The location in Leicester Square was very nice, and the hotel seemed to be a popular place to visit. I received the worst treatment possible from the managerial staff. Firstly, even though they had my reservation, which was made and confirmed a month and a half in advance, they decided that they didn't have any room available for me to stay in when I arrived to check in. I found this to be very unprofessional since they could have called me or emailed me prior to my arrival at the hotel to give me a forewarning so that I could plan ahead as well. The situation was worsened by the staff then relaying this information to me in a very condescending manner in which they had the very unapologetic tone of "take it or leave it". Secondly, they decided that a fair way to "compensate" me would be by reserving a room in another hotel on my behalf, without any input from me regarding choice, and then giving me a ride to this new hotel. I specifically chose the W for my stay and did not choose the other hotel when making my initial plans. So, the manager felt he could take the payment for the room at the W, decide that they no longer have a room at the W, then deny me the choice of an alternative hotel, and all without the option of a refund. They said they were compensating me, but I feel that they cheated me greatly. It was terrible customer service. Eventually, I had no choice but to take their offer of staying at the other property, which I didn't want to stay in, since they were not going to make any room available for me at the W for the night. Truthfully, I feel there were a bunch of racial undertones and biases based on the unprofessional, condescending, unempathetic, and unapologetic tone of the manager and staff. I have stayed at many hotels around the world. This has been, by far, my worst experience with any hotel staff regarding a reservation.
The situation of the restaraunt above the bar made it a very noisy experience
Staff were very helpful and the hotel was certainly central - paid for a mid range room which was really quite small with no view would hate to see the standard size Room size
the quality of the beds I would prefer a buffet breakfast
Attention of staff is the best I have experienced in London. Parking of car. Ambience. Decor. Only the price!!
great staff and great breakfast, no buffet
Everything was great, a bit expensive but that's central London. Nice Bar and pool. There was a cold draft coming from the old windows and the heat did not really heat the room. However, when we brought this to the attention of staff they came up within 5 minutes with an electric heater, and the next day called to make sure everything was OK. Breakfast could be included in the high cost of the room.
Clean room, stylish lounge, excellent bathroom suite Felt a little expensive as did not include breakfast
All of the staff were alert and looking for an opportunity to help. Excellent service.
It's location, being within short walking distance of most of the interesting places in London Arriving by car stopping at a bus stop in front of the hotel to get the luggage out of the car. The attendants were very prompt though.
