“Amazing location, elegant hotel”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I've stayed at this hotel many times. I love the Edwardian decor (with comfortable modern appointments). It feels a bit like old London in the center of Leicester Square.

This hotel seems to retain their excellent staff for a long time. It's delightful to return here every year and be recognized by the friendly staff. The staff have been very responsive to any difficulties experienced during our stay, have acknowledged any problems and worked to address them in an admirable manner.

The rooms are on the smaller side, which can be challenging when travelling with lots of luggage.

Tkts (half-price ticket seller) is located immediately outside the hotel door, and many restaurants and theatres are found in the immediate surroundings. This is a fabulous location for theatre-goers and foodies.

My family and I stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past 10+ years and it seems to get better each time! For this stay, we had other hotel options in a slightly lower price range, but our thinking was, when you find something good, stick with it. We were not disappointed. The only thing that would make it truly ideal is having breakfast included, as is the general policy of most European hotels.

During our recent stay, we availed ourselves of the concierge services for the first time and couldn't have been happier with the results. The hotel's close proximity to the Tube lines and theaters also makes it an ideal place to stay.

Great location - A 2 minute walk from the Tube station leads to this Leciester Square oasis. Beautiful hotel with well informed and wanting to please staff. The room amenities were more than ample. The Housekeeping and other staff always had a smile. Even if the weather is a little cloudy, there is always sun at the Radisson. Staying here was a joy!

We couldn't have asked for more when staying at this hotel. Although check in wasn't until three pm the welcoming staff did their utmost to check us in at about twelve thirty as we were going to a matinee. Although I had booked a triple room for some reason a glitch meant that it came up as a queen room with not enough room for an extra bed for my daughter so we were upgraded to a suite. The room furnishings were amazing, cocktails in the bar were super and the welcoming staff made this one of the most pleasant hotel experienced of my life. Being a stones throw from the west end theatres made the stay even better. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay there every time if I could x

We had a great weekend here. The published time for check in is at 3pm which is a bit late in my opinion. Location of the hotel is really good and that was one of the main reasons why we chose the hotel. We had a deluxe king room facing the square but to be honest there's not much of a view. We can see above the tree line from room 517. But there's a grey concrete overhang just outside the window that somewhat blocks the view. The size of the room is really good.

If you are looking for a centrally located hotel in the westend for theatres, shopping at Oxford street, Regent Street, Covent Garden, Chinatown, soho, or as a base for visiting tourist attractions in London, I would recommend this.

We have stayed in a number of Radisson Blu hotels in this area of London which have all been very good but this hotel wins hands down on location and friendliness and helpfulness of staff. It is not cheap but well worth paying extra to have a room overlooking Leicester Square. Our room was spacious and bathroom was excellent.

A great hotel
Of course, given its position, its not cheap! But the rooms are a decent size for something so central and being right on Leicester square is fantastic for accessing everything.
Only negative can be the noise of deliveries etc on the square and collection of bottles early in the morning
But for us its worth it...

Room Tip: If you want to avoid noise ask for a room at the back - also gives you a view of Nelson's Column...

It is wonderful to hear your feedback following your recent stay and I thank you for taking the time to share this with us.

I am glad you liked our central location, we couldn’t agree more that our prime location gives you access to an abundance of attractions, entertainment and famous landmarks within easy walking distance.

I am very pleased you were able to enjoy one of our lovely views of Westminster. Although we have many rooms overlooking Leicester Square, we think this is a great alternative view we are very fortunate to be able to offer.

I hope you will choose to stay with us on any future visit to London and we look forward to welcoming you back.
