I stayed at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel, London last month for an international conference. The Hotel is located on the South Bank of Westminster Bridge facing the Parliament and Big Ben. Its location is within short walking distance and convenient to Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Parliament, London Eye, Trafalgar Square and many other tourist attractions. It is also within minute walk to Waterloo and Westminster tube stations.
However, the room of the Hotel is disappointing. The Hotel is situated in a circular-shaped structure, and the rooms are lined up into four roughly parallel wings inside the circular building, with enclosed veranda in-between the wings. Therefore, most of the rooms have no outside windows. The room I had is on the second floor, and therefore the only windows I had was facing the veranda walkway. The size of the room is OK by European standards, but the bathroom is very small.
Check-in and out services are efficient. But the internet connection is bad. I had trouble log-in after I checked in. It took the Hotel one-hour to find out that the system was down, wasting me all the time trying to get connected. Wifi signal was also weak in the room, making the connection slow.
