Melia White House Hotel
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA very elegant, large hotel. The star shaped design of the building means all rooms face outwards. The best views are on the 7th and 8th floors. Great restaurants.
Nice hotel, good location, great staff,good breakfast AWFUL bed!!!!!!! however when we asked for a different room with a softer bed the hotel did put a topper and quilt on top of the mattress which solved the problem so well done.
I had a wonderful check in with Penny who was new to the role and still training, she was really pleasant, friendly and met me with a smile. She was very apologetic as she worked her way around the check in process but it was completed efficiently and quickly. Take note, Melia White House, you have an asset in this young woman. This was my first stay at the hotel and I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the room (for a London hotel). The hotel has a nice bar and along with a colleague had a bite of lunch there. As others have commented, the hotel is well positioned with access to Regent's Park and three different underground lines. Check out was not so clever, it was busy and a little slow but when I made it to reception, the gentleman advised I had a balance to clear, this was expected but on receiving the bill for lunch the previous day, I noted that I had been charged for drinks in addition to food. My colleague had purchased our drinks the previous day and the drinks on my bill were not the ones we had consumed and I explained this to the gentleman. I was advised that he'd need to check the bar receipts and he went off to get them, he came back with a receipt which included my food but also had these additional drinks, with my room number hand written. I was then questioned accusingly, " So you ate lunch but didn't have a drink?" I explained again hay my colleague had bought our drinks and gave his name. He looked him up and confirmed drinks had been charged to his room. He then agreed to remove these drinks. All this took around 20 minutes to complete.
Right in the heart of London and walking distance from Regents Park and 3 underground stations the place is more about location than anything else.Great shopping and great food are all within 20 minutes walking distance from this place.The breakfast selection is delectable but the pigeon hole rooms leave much to be desired.Besides if you are on a budget and go for a lower class of room you will end up paying for even a bottle of water (very disappointing)I'am writing this while staying here (checked in today) and thank god there is a Tesco Express near by to buy the water. Here for 6 nights. I mean at 200 Pounds a night its quite irksome, specially when you don't mention it. Also as I would be checking out at 5Am, I asked if I could have the breakfast today (the day I checked in) instead of on the 2nd when I check out (a no brainer as it is no additional cost) I was told to go ahead but no confirmation if this would be charged or not (supposed to have been told in "20 Minutes Sir")Also ironically enough, in the land of Queens English the reception staff is somewhat limited in their understanding of the same. Though they are very courteous and polite but forgot to tell me about the wifi. Also whats covered in the services is not explained clearly.Low roofed rooms are an additional let down.And on a broader note I grew at a time when stars meant something. There were hotels and then there were hotels, awards and testimonial weren't needed, if it was a 4 or 5 star you 'knew' it would be something special, now a days it seems every man jack and his hotel chain is sporting at least three stars, wouldn't you agree?Would I come here again, only if my company was paying for it, if I were to be honest. Very mixed bag sense of emotions on this hotel, 'so - so' is the phrase that comes to mind.
I had the chance to stay in this hotel in London downtown. Good experience, probably I will repeat in the following visit to London.Calm environment and high quality service. Personnel was kind with us, try to help in everything.A good choice
We stayed for a long weekend in London, the hotel is nice and the service in general is good. Clean rooms, etc... the only thing I did not like was breakfast even though they have great quality the service is terrible, too crowed and I had to ask for coffee 4 times...
