Nice hotel

Nice hotel, about 10 minute walk to Vauxhall tube station. So not walking out the door into great nightlife. But, just take the tube where you need to go. Pretty much a studio apartment with a full size fridge and microwave plus stovetop. Right on the river. My room was very warm. Not a deal breaker, but I never slept under the bed covers. But if you get a good price, it's an excellent hotel.

Fantastic family stay

The price was really good, and location was nice, it's only a 5 minute brisk walk / 10 minute stroll fri m aquarium but it looks longer on the map The suite was beautiful and we were upgraded for £10 to a huge apartment! The food is reasonably priced and really nice ... lots of choice ( huge varied menu for room service ) Staff were the friendliest I've come accross in a London hotel

Sounds harsh but..

The hotel is being remodelled or relaunched. I went with the perception that it all was going to be remodelled and new but it is not. If it is then they have done a poor job. In any case this is not so bad. The thing which was not good was the air con. In the meeting room, stochastic warm and cold but mostly warm. The same continued in the room. I put the aircon at 16 degrees and it was blowing really warm air out of the fan. I switched it off. The bar is nice. It has a nice view and good service. The same restaurant also serves as a breakfast area. The buffet was not great, lacked variety and quality, although the coffee was really good. Service was friendly, location is good but for what you pay and the feedback above, average.

A complete let down

Over priced and dirty looking the rooms reminded me of a shared kitchen in a student house nothing matched everything was damage or pealing u don't expect this from a suppose 5 star hotel I would have rather stayed at a travelodge

GEM OF A HOTEL SOUTH OF THE RIVER, A 5 STAR HOME FROM HOME!

I decided to give this hotel 5 stars for the excellent service and accommodation despite a few small issues. All the staff were so incredibly helpful, especially the doormen. Check in and check out were both swift and simple. A £50.00 deposit per night is taken for extras which is very reasonable for a 5 star hotel. The apartment was amazing! 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms - one with a bath, huge balcony (good for smokers) and views over London and the Thames - we couldn't have asked for more. We were a group of 9+ friends celebrating an occasion so 2 x 2 bedroom apartments were perfect for us and the price was great. Everything is catered for, full kitchen with fridge, hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine! (No oven). Large flat screen tv's in all rooms, 1 bath, 2 showers - Elemis toiletries are a nice luxury touch! Coffee machine and tea, coffee, milk is provided, as well as salt and pepper and washing up liquid. (No tea towels). Very well stocked mini bar! We stayed on the 6th floor, although there appeared to be about 17 floors, we had lovely views and the lifts were modern and fast. The only issues we had were the docking stations in the rooms only had the old iphone4 plug in - we are now on iphone7 so we couldn't play any of our own music - these really need updating! Also we were charged £5 for borrowing a cutting knife but this was swiftly removed on check out when I queried it as we were not aware there would be a charge. Nice big lounge bar on the first floor also had great views - drinks rather pricey but that's London! We did not take advantage of the breakfast due to the cost but breakfast is available in the rooms or in the restaurant (around £15.00 I think?). Vauxhall Tube Station 5-10 minutes walk as well as plenty of bars and restaurants including gay club/sauna. Concierge were excellent, taxis easy to come by. I will definitely be back to stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to any groups, families or couples looking for luxury at a good price, or longer stays in London.
