The Strand has a lobby that feels like a heavily disinfected bus terminal.... The entrance, right off the busy street, is not really glamorized by the young porters with top hats. They do try to help but it's just a bit too hectic. The check-in was ok, but again, this is a sort of frantic place. The rooms are fine, actually. Well kept and quiet, on the sixth floor interior. The maid service was thorough and the beds comfortable. We had significant internet problems, though, which was annoying to us as business travelers. Management comped us our breakfast, which was appropriate.
I don't know.... It's really just ok. The location is very good, with lots to do in the area from Covent a Garden to the west end theaters and the old city historic section. I'd really rather a bit more "style" in a London hotel.
