Stayed for just one night, great service from ALL staff, such a difference from the usual capital city grumpiness.
Value for money comes from the extensive buffet, combined room and travelpass service and genuine smiles from doorman, reception, concierge, maids & restaurant staff, well done managers for making them happy in their work.
Location is excellent for sight seeing and entertainment both sides of the river.
Small areas for improvement, wi-fi is not free, noise from other rooms was invasive at times.

My recent visit started with a fast and efficient check in process, I was in my room before 12 noon. Breakfast is excellent and again, efficiently managed. The management are making determined efforts in modernising the hotel, work replacing windows is ongoing. 'Club' rooms are the ones to go for. Even the singles are adequately sized, the bathrooms modern and the beds comfortable.

Due to the hotel's excellent location, the package to go for is the inclusive travel card offer, which covers zones 1 & 2 and will get you to all the major sites. Bus stops are outside (eastbound) and across the road westbound, including two 'heritage routes' with routemaster buses, No.9 to the Albert Hall and beyond, No.15 to the Tower of London. Embankment tube station is an easy 5-10 minute walk, as is Embankment pier for the 'Thames Clippers' (discount with travel card !). If arriving by tube from Heathrow, change lines at Hammersmith where you just have to cross the platform.

I have stayed many times at the Strand Palace over the years and now don't even bother looking at other hotels in central London.

Room Tip: Always ask for an outside facing room on a high floor level. These are MUCH cooler and brighter than...

I have stayed in this hotel several times, for businees, with family, with friends, even solo. I think it is a good value for money considering the hotel category and location. My only but is the size of the rooms, somewhat small, but since the hotel is continuously being refurbished and it has really improved. The concierge services are good and the buffet English breakfast is excellent, don't miss it! No need to take public transport from there if you want to explore the city, as many London landmarks at a walking distance: Trafalgar Sq, Covent Garden, West End, St. James. It is one of my favourite options in London for short stays.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are somewhat small, but clean and affordable for such a great location

This was an excellent location for me, as a woman travelling alone. I felt very safe, and all the amenities I required and Charing Cross station were nearby. I really appreciated and took advantage of the concierge service, they were great! The room was comfortable, well appointed and very clean.
I wish I could have stayed longer than 4 nights!

We found the rooms could have benefited from air conditioning but a fan which was provided in the room was sufficient for when we stayed in August.
The staff especially in the restaurant were very professional and made us feel relaxed during our meal both in the evening and at breakfast. With pleasant personalities from all staff including the cleaners who always greeted us with a smile and hellos we were made to feel most welcome.
