fantastic views

loved this hotel, albeit our room was far too hot for sleeping and nothing could be done, breakfast was good as were the views. Door man Romero was friendly and happy, easy to get a taxi too as right outside

Poor value for price

Apartments are priced at over £200 per night. I booked a 1 bed apartment which was not worth the money. Try the adjacent hotel which might provide better value for money if you're happy with a standard hotel room. Note the 'apartment hotel' has recently started to offer newer apartments (marketed as suites) on higher floors. These seem dark and cramped by comparison to the 1/2 bed apartments on the lower floors - but at least there your shower door might close or room service might be more attentive. Club Carlsson members be warned...don't think you will receive the same level of attention you might expect at other special treatment'll have to fight to get any recognition.

Great Service

Stayed at Plaza on the River in a one bedroom Suite. On check in got an upgrade to a balcony suite and was able to use the lounge.Lady on the desk “Gabriella” was really nice and very professional. Dror the manager was very helpful is making our stay the best it could be. I am a regular user of this chain and I have always stayed at the Park Plaza Westminster as my first choice, but have to say since the Riverbank has had its refurb this hotel is now very much on par with Westminster.One thing not the end of the world but had breakfast in the room, it arrived early but was a little cold and the eggs were wrong! Again not the end of the world.8/10

Wonderful stay

Fantastic hotel, fantastic staff, fantastic location. I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting London whether business or pleasure. I regularly stay at the hotel and it is continually improving. The newly built section is great and the views incredible.

Good stay

Stayed here with my husband and 3 children for two nights during a visit to London. Overall a good stay. Pros: friendly staff, received a complementary upgrade to a river view room, was given an early check-in. Spacious, clean, two bedroom suite. Beautiful views and fairly convenient to area sights. Cons: Very noisy- we were 11 floors up and I felt like I was on the street it was so noisy. We had noisy neighbors and thin walls! The room was very hot, and this couldn't seem to be rectified by the front desk. There was also a fire alarm that went off at 1 am- not good!
