“Splendid and elegant hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

This hotel has an extremely nice and elegant atmosphere - very old school London. I stayed in a single room which was fairly small, but when you are in London you don't spent much time in your room do you? The service in the reception and restaurant was outstanding. The staff was professional and very friendly. My only "complain" was a young bartender who wasn't smiling or at least trying to be serviceminded. I will definitely book a room in this hotel next time I'm in London and I will recommend it to everyone.

Positive: clean room, nice-looking bed, food supermarket within 100 meters.

Not so good: very small room (only 2.5 x 2 meters free space); no fridge/minibar; broken cupboard doors; noise from next room; no stationery, not even a few leaflet for notes.

The staff were all very lovely but I want to point out Ankita from the front desk and also Jason from maintenance in particular. Ankita was so helpful and always had a smile on her face. It was wonderful to see! Jason helped my mum and I with our (very heavy!) suitcases through the hallway and held the doors open for us too. It was a wonderful stay all round but Ankita and Jason particularly stood out. A big thank you to them both and keep up the brilliant work!

Room was small but very clean and comfortable. Staff however were brilliant. They were very helpful when a tour company failed to pick up up for a trip. When asked for information regarding parking, directions and other tours there was always someone able to assist. Very good location, would go back.

This is my favorite hotel in London. Prices are very reasonable, location is excellent (right on the Picadilly line, near a Waitrose) and service is very friendly and excellent. Just like other Radisson hotels it offers free wifi (there is also a business center that allows you to print out documents for free). Highly recommended.

Yesterday my husband and I went to the hotel for lunch as part of a theatre and lunch deal. We had a table booked for 1.30pm but arrived just after one. The brasserie was not busy, about 3 other small tables present. It took 20 mins for our drinks to arrive, 45 minutes for my cold starter (prawn cocktail) and about 1 hour for my husband's mushroom on toast (slightly burnt). The mains luckily only took about another 15 minutes. The food was average. There were several complaints from other tables who like us had the lunch and theatre deal. The theatre show started at 3.30pm so some tables were struggling timewise. There was a real lack of organisation certainly I suggest in the kitchen/staff (apart from a lovely lady called Cecilia, who was trying to hold it together and was doing a sterling job to rectify the issues). Some tables had young children and their food also took ages to arrive. Other tables (who came after us) had their starters served first despite having the same as us!!. Anyway, would not recommend (especially if you are short of time!). I heard at least 4 other tables complaining and one man sent his food back (he was pointing at it) so not sure what his issue was. On the way out, I noticed some people having afternoon tea which looked nicely presented but not sure how long they had waited! Given that this is a 4 star venue, either it was having a very bad day yesterday or there was simply not enough staff on to cover. Luckily the show was much better and made up for the delays and average food.
