We were visiting the hotel for a private function, but what a wonderful experience, the staff were attentive, well trained and friendly yet professional, the atmosphere in the hotel was fantastic and although I believe it was recently renovated they have beautifully combined the historic elements with the up to date expectations of a top London Hotel, we look forward to going back to London and staying there!

I stayed here in September for a couple of nights. The hotel is of the highest quality, excellent service and arrival experience. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed. The Spa is very stylish by ESPA, very professional service and if you like ESPA's modern version of Spa then you will love this one over 4 levels with direct access to the hotel corridors so you don't have to wonder through the lobby with your robe on. We didn't use the restaurants as the night we decided to go to one of the restaurants they were all unfortunately fully booked. Our fault for not booking in advance as it was a Saturday, although the restaurant manager seemed flustered and didn't deal with us as perhaps in hindsight he would have preferred. In room dining was excellent for dinner and breakfast. If you prefer to use the top hotels in London, the Corinthia should certainly be added to your list.

We are delighted to read the Corinthia London team looked after you so well on arrival and you allocated you one of our larger-than-average rooms. We are also very pleased that you had the opportunity to experience our award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia spa, with four levels of marble luxury and its own direct access lift, as well as the excellent in-room dining, which offers dishes from both our international restaurants and some unique ones too. The extensive buffet breakfast served in The Northall is a favourite of our guests, offering a wide selection of dishes to appeal to every palate. We very much look forward to welcoming you once again, when next time you can have the pleasure of dining in Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar and The Northall.

Finding a luxurious hotel to stay in London that ticks all the right boxes with regards to rooms , amenities , locations , luxurious finishing touches , space, fine dining etc is usually an almost
impossible task . So while I was planning a special treat for my partners 35 th birthday I was getting a bit stressed out ...couldn't find a place that was central without having dowdy tired stuffy over priced crowded small poky rooms ( and no facilities usually ) or hoofing way out of town and compromising severely on location ...and the luxury aspect .
When I saw corinthia ( on trip advisor ) I had an inkling my prayers had been answered .
And when we turned up on a Friday evening ...I was not wrong one bit . I was blown away in fact .
This place has it all . The service was impeccable ( we actually got instantly upgraded - without asking to a junior suite ) ....the suite was to die for ...I have never seen rooms this size in a hotel in any place in the whole of the uk or in Europe let alone London . We even had our own little balcony overlooking the central courtyard.
The bathroom had a shower large enough to fit a small rugby team into . The rain shower had water pressure like a firemans hose . The bed was so large and comfortable that rising in time for breakfast was literally impossible ....so we had to drown our sorrows in the spa which may have been possibly the most beautiful chilled
out , relaxing rejuvenating inviting space I have seen in a hotel full stop...ever ....
The extra touches make it ...luxury products in the bathroom . Even the apples in the bowl seemed to have fallen off some tree in paradise...the crunchiest juiciest most succulent apple I ever tasted ....
Yes ...it is expensive ...but the key here is it is so worth it . No fear of shelling out a lot of cash for an average stay which you are usually in store for anywhere else in London .
Making corinthia the only place to stay in my opinion . I have only been home a day and can't wait to go back .
Book it . You will not regret it .
And to the people at harrods who own this place ..".please keep it as it is and just about affordable so us " normal " folk can keep coming ? "

We stayed here for 3 nights. What a wonderful hotel -perfect in fact. The staff were so helpful and polite and made us feel really welcome. The reception staff,those in the Northall and in Massimo could not have been better. The hotel itself is stunning - luxurious and modern. The location is perfect for sightseeing,no need to use the tube. We hope to return.

I am pretty sure this is the best hotel I have stayed in all year.

Everything from the facility to the people and the service was absolutely first class, throw in a great location and the hotel has it made.

Arrival experience was wonderful. The lobby is elegant and while not the most welcoming place to kick your feet up the variety of the outlets in the hotel make it a perfect fit.

Love the flower shop in the atrium between the lobby and breakfast room, provides amazing ambiance!

The room was flawless. It features a wonderful atrium and wardrobe, a nicely sized and well appointed bedroom and a phenomenal bathroom.

Nice tub with a perfectly placed TV, amazing shower, great light- everything you want or need!

The outlets were wonderful with a great breakfast service and a live music lounge that was a lot of fun. Never made it for a full dinner but had a great time drinking and snacking before heading out on the town.

It's a prime spot in London so while it wasn't cheap I think the value was quite decent in regard to drink and menu pricing.

Espa is a true amenity to the hotel! Love the way that each floor has a direct elevator to the spa, a truly nice touch.

Who wants to take the public elevator in their robe in the lucidly amazing mood that this place puts you in?

London has a lot of great hotels and I certainly don't know them all but these guys did an amazing job and I would recommend the hotel to anyone!

Happy Travels!

Thank you for taking the time to post a charming review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. It was a pleasure to read your positive comments about every aspect of the hotel, and it certainly sounds like you had a most enjoyable stay. We were delighted that you also managed to experience so many of the excellent facilities Corinthia London has to offer, and noticed the attention to detail in each department. We are always most pleased to hear great feedback about the team at Corinthia London, who strive to exceed every guest’s expectations and always go the extra mile, especially as we pride ourselves on our Craftsmanship of Care customer service policy and training. The hotel is ideally situated for both the business and leisure traveller, many of London’s most iconic sights are with walking distance, or an adjacent transport hub gives easy access throughout the city, and over thirty West End theatres and opera houses are within a mile radius, as well as some of London’s most well-known shopping destinations just a walk or short journey away. All of our rooms are larger than average for central London hotels, and come complete with ensuite underfloor heated marble bathrooms with separate rainshowers and baths with built in LCD-TV as standard. The Northall serves an extensive buffet breakfast offering guests healthy options from cereals, fruits, yoghurts, and juices to a Full English, and even Chinese Dim Sum, to appeal to every taste. ESPA Life at Corinthia is a superb experience in itself, four floors of marble luxury, housing a state of the art gym, seventeen treatment rooms, and a Thermal Floor with swimming and vitality pools. We very much appreciate your recommendation, and look forward to welcoming you on your next visit, when you can experience Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar, our modern Italian restaurant, and The Northall, offering the best of British seasonal fare.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

I stayed there for two nights and found it hard to find a defect. Excellent service, beautiful decoration, delicious and lush breakfast, great location, fantastic bathroom in the room, all the amenities you can think of. The SPA apparently is also top class but I did not have time to go. If I have to find something wrong, I found the room and the window slightly too small although I was very comfortable.

We had a Saturday night stay as a birthday treat. We got a great room with a view east along the river. The furnishings are luxurious but contemporary. The staff are attentive but don't overwhelm you. We had an excellent dinner in the Massimo restaurant which had a buzzy atmosphere. I'd recommend Corinthia if you are looking for a well located London 5 star that offers something a little more modern than the traditional Park Lane & Mayfair hotels.
