    Advertised happy hour = drinks were still expensive

    Superb

    We have been there more than once, not one of the cheapest hotels but certainly value for our money. We booked last year in the same street a hotel and were really disappointed about everything so we now know "London is crown plaza hotel and nothing else "

    Good

    The staff are wonderful - front desk, concierge, and everybody at check-in.

    Unfortunately, the room - and I had a superior suite - was a long way from comfortable. The air was stuffy, and the atmospheres drab and dark and gloomy. But the very worst aspect, the food. I had breakfast in my room and it was inedible. Stone cold, revolting, greasy and foul. For the money spent, this was hugely disappointing and I feel ripped off and foolish for hoping for comfort and luxury in a chain hotel.

    Superb

    The hotel is in an excellent location, a few steps away from Gloucester Rd. Station which is served by the Picadilly, District and Circle lines which take directly to a lot of the main areas of central London. We got to actually enjoy our weekend away, without having to worry about transportation and organising to be on time for events. Other than that the rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly. Would stay there again!

    The room was a little stuffy, so the air conditioning had to be switched on. It would have been nice to have bath robes but I suppose these days hotels provide these less and less.

    The temperature in bedrooms and meeting rooms was difficult to control and the food was quite disappointing.

    Proximity to the Albert Hall and to the major museums and galleries. Comfort and generous proportions of the room. Good bathroom with plentiful supply of nice toiletries and lots of big towels.

    No complaints

    Check-In was too slow and too long (it took 90 min to get in the room)

    Superb

    Rooms were very clean and large. Great location and very nice staff. Good sleep quality - room was quiet and bed was comfortable. We also enjoyed dining at the Umami restaurant with 25% off.

    No free wifi in the room.

    Very good

    The location was excellent. It was easy to walk to Harrods, and it was easy to take the Hop on Hop Off bus around London. Transportation from Paddington Station was easy. The rooms were very nice, and the staff was helpful.

    1. I returned at 3:30 pm to my room, and the Housekeeper had not made up my room yet. I called the Front Desk and asked for housekeeping services. I received the services at 4:45 pm, which is very late. 2. Breakfast was included in my room rate, but I was charged extra for a second cappucino, and a 12.5% service charge was automatically charged to my bill. 3. I purchased a glass of wine at the bar, and my bill automatically included a 12.5% service charge. I would rather have the flexibility to leave a tip, if the service is good.

    Fabulous

    Spacious room at this price for London. Booking . com found us a better rate and a better rate than the conference people at the Hotel despite the fact that we had booked a conference facility with them

    Lack of a pool

    Fabulous

    Staff was very helpful and quick to respond to all requests. I was travelling with friends and they modified the room to dual double bed for no extra cost. Having a sauna is a great plus as well.
