“Vegas standard 6 Star”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

Absolutely blown away by this hotel - we've stayed at a lot of nice hotels in London, but the Corinthia beat them all! The location is great, and although Whitehall and Trafalgar Square are quite touristy, it was nice to pass some amazing London landmarks travelling to and from the hotel. It's also a couple of minutes away from the Southbank which is always great.

The staff are fantastic and checking in was a breeze. We were immediately upgraded and our room was wonderful. Tastefully decorated, big enough and a lovely large spa like bathroom. Even the corridors smelled gorgeous as we headed off to our room.

Please make sure you try the Bassoon Bar - gorgeous cocktails and a fabulous singer, and the Spa - 4 floors of heaven.

After a one night stay this hotel has quickly jumped to the top of my list - we'll be back (sooner rather than later I hope!)

Thank you for posting a glowing review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and managed to experience many of the fine facilities the hotel has to offer. The hotel is ideally located for sightseeing with many of London's must see landmarks within walking distance, and an adjacent transport hub for easy access throughout the city. What a treat to be upgraded, all of our rooms are larger than average for central London hotels, and come with huge marble bathrooms with separate rain showers and big bath tubs and ESPA toiletries as standard. No visit is complete without a visit to our award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia spa, followed by a bespoke cocktail in Bassoon, with an eclectic selection of live music most nights of the week, it is a great place to relax at the end of a busy day's sightseeing. We very much appreciate your kind compliments and look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to London.

Best wishes, Renaud Gregoire, General Manager.

With a number of hotels in london under renovation and the Savoy losing its charm. the Corinthis has filled a much needed gap.

The delivery of the perfect stay in a big city - Great Concierge that can get you anything you need is a must in a popular place like london - fending for your self on bookings in a no no .

The rooms are perfect and as for the tables rather than desks I love the fact that two can sit at it - so both my husband and I worked on the table - electricity point are ample.

I loved the breakfast room - warm with great staff, big light windows that bring the old world charm into a perfectly laid out eating area. Doing tea in the lobby is a missed opportunity for hotel as not as charming as other london hotel - esp the outdoor area that could be a perfect formal tea area.

Love the location as you can walk to almost any part of london even south of the river the bridge is next to the hotel . Canary wharf is a short tube ride away - taking a taxi is a challenge - with all the congestion in and around its not ideal .

Everyone and everything in the hotel was perfect. my only reservation was the Doormen - when compared with other similar hotels around the world were distracted and not very responsive and not welcoming the hotel indoor staff had to help on numerous occasion to fill the gap - this is based my stay in June and in August

Room Tip: near lifts

All of our beautifully-appointed rooms come with a host of complimentary amenities and big ensuite bathrooms with walk-in rain showers and huge bathtubs. There is no better way to start a busy day's sightseeing than with the extensive buffet breakfast in The Northall, with a selection of dishes to please every palate; and there is equally no better way to end a day around town than with our Afternoon Tea under the iconic Baccarat chandelier in The Lobby Lounge, or taken alfresco in The Courtyard if the weather is warm. The location of the hotel is ideal for the leisure traveller with many of London's must-see sights within walking distance, an adjacent transport hub for quick and easy access around the city, and over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius.

The Corinthia is centrally located just across the River Thames from the London Eye and just a short walk from Trafalgar Square. This give you access to both sides of the city within walking distance to almost anywhere, and easy access to river transportation and bus/underground, or taxi obviously. Everything in the hotel is modern and up to date. Service is as you would expect in a 5-star hotel, i.e. as good as it gets. Most rooms have an interior view of the courtyard, if you want an exterior view (preferably River View) be sure to book the appropriate room category. Breakfast is superb, top quality and delicious. Afternoon tea is also delicious (try the Churchill tea if you like a smoky flavor). We had it in the courtyard in front of the fireplace. Our children were welcomed by the hotel with gifts for them in the room and a fresh basket of fruit replenished daily. If you are thinking of staying here, don't think twice.

Room Tip: River View Suite is spectacular

We are delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay, especially as we have introduced many amenities to make your visit more comfortable, with more twin inter-connecting rooms, dedicated pool times, children's menus, and welcoming gifts and turndown treats.

There is no better way to set you up for a day's sightseeing than the extensive buffet breakfast in The Northall, with a selection of dishes to please every palate. The hotel was one of the original Grand Hotels from the Victorian era, that has been thoroughly modernised to meet the demands of the twenty-first century traveller, with beautifully-appointed public spaces, London's largest spa, and the fastest 1Gb complimentary Wi-Fi throughout. We very much appreciate your kind comments, and look forward to welcoming you and your family as returning guests on your next visit to London.

Corinthia is a great hotel in the heart of London. Standard rooms are nice an cozy, bathrooms have heated floors (which is pretty useful in cold UK), and the spa is great. Breakfast are amazing too, they have a lot of healthy options including fresh fruit, berries and vegetables.

An excellent hotel. The doormen will notice your name on a luggage tag whilst getting bags from the cab and then address you by name as you alight - a small detail, but typical of the level of service you can expect. Public areas are great, with lots of quirky architectural and decorative touches - note the large lift floor indicators above the rear lifts.
Superior room was indeed superior, and was a great combination of classic features with a modern twist, and with a really excellent bathroom.
Location is also very good, close both to The Embankment and Trafalgar Square
Okay, it's on the expensive side, especially the extras, but I would still stay here again

Everything is jsut as you would hope it would be in a five star London hotel. Grand building, great setting, close to everything, polite staff. We did the Stay Sunday Spa Monday deal and had a great time exploring the thermal floors on both the sunday and Monday.

Room was lovely and a great size, with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. Rooms have all mod-cons. Obviously eveything in the room is exceptionally overpriced e.g a miniatrure of gin is £14 and a 200ml mixer is £4.5 so you couldn't have a little drink without baulking at the price.

Our room wasn't completely made up when we checked into it but no one seemed to have noticed. This then led to 2-3 people running back and forth to make sure all the glasswear was now present and the correct number of apples were in the bowl.

The only real downside for me was that the bed was small. By all means it was a big, wide bed (probably king or super king), but my legs were hanging off the end for the whole night. I am not an extremely tall chap and neither is my partner but we both struggled with the length of the bed. Beds should be long enough, and wide enough.

Spa is nice but doesn't have mthat much int he wasy of offerings unless you want to pay a lot for a treatment. The treatments are definitely overpriced. the spa has very small pool, spa pool (partially broken when we were there), large sauna, large steam room, and three heated loungers.

You will be glad to stay herem just don't look at the price of anything.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony. The ice buckets are tiny but the service people will happily come and re...

Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. The Stay Sunday, Spa Monday package is the most popular of all of our promotions, and very much enjoyed by our guests. The hotel was originally a grand hotel from the Victorian era, built in 1885, with a restoration from GA Design, who have created a hotel fit for the twenty-first century traveller. We very much appreciate your frank feedback, and your comments about the beds have been forwarded to the Director of Housekeeping. All of our beds are made by Hypnos, most are King or Super King with standard proportionate length to width to accommodate most shapes and sizes. We are very pleased you had the opportunity to use London's largest spa, ESPA Life at Corinthia, with four floors of marble luxury housing a twenty-four hour state-of-the-art gym, seventeen treatments rooms staffed by expert therapists, separate his and hers changing rooms, each housing saunas and steam rooms, and a Thermal Floor with swimming and vitality pools, a huge amphitheatre sauna, a steam room with separate seating areas, an ice-fountain, heated reclining beds, and a relaxation area, as well as a Daniel Galvin hair salon as part of the complex. Thank you for your kind recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you for many more visits to come.

I visited the Corinthia for afternoon tea last week as a guest of the hotel manager. The team went out of their way to make it a special visit for us. Everything was excellent, a standard I have come to expect from this hotel and which they deliver every time. The director of F&B dropped by to say hello too which was very much appreciated.

After tea we went for cocktails in the Northhall bar, where I was served THE best french martini I have ever tasted.

If you want to go to a great venue for a special treat or just to have a wonderful experience, try this hotel/venue.
