When booking four nights online direct with "One Aldwych" I opted for the upgrade from Excecutive to Deluxe Room. Upon Check-in no one mentioned anything concering any upgrade, even though Deluxe Rooms were available!!
We were then given room 421, which must of been the smallest Excecutive Room in the Hotel. The room measured 4 x 5 meters exclusive of small bathroom and corridor. (according to website: Dimensions: 24-27 square metres/258-291 square feet (size). The luggage arrived in the room the bellboy took the 5£ tip and left. I had to ring reception to find out where the safe was, no mention of free shoeshine etc. Well I suppose they thought we could read.
We were also asked which newspaper we would like in the morning. I always like to read the newspaper before the start of my day in bed. The newspaper never arrived in the morning, only after the room had been made was the newspaper in the room. We like to put our toiletries in the bathroom where we feel we want them. Every single day the room maid had moved everthything (all our toiletries) we had arranged to a place behind the bath! In the end we gave up rearranging and obeyed the roommaids adjustments.
I also expect blackout curtains from a 5 * Hotel in the room, they were two pulldown blinds!
On the fouth and last night of our stay no turndown for the night which also meant no water for the night! My wife was Executive Housekeeper in a 5 * Hotel in Zurich, so in the end she did the turndown.
I did like the complimentary WIFI.
