Spent weekend here as part of theatre break. Although part of package basic twin around £250 / night less via discount sites. At weekend they usually throw breakfast in as well.
Firstly great location of 5-star opposite Houses of Parliament NEXT-DOOR to London Eye with good transport access though hotel parking is £35 per day.
Building converted old london council so not purpose built hence tiny lobby & odd entrances.
Room with view of Thames was asked for extra so settled side view 502 on fifth floor with views city/ part thames. Room second from last end of very long corridor so if kids/elderly suggest ask room closer to the lifts. Gym avaiable as part of our package but not used.
Generous size rooms / comfortable with added bonuses of a 5 star such as gowns provided.
As stayed mid-feb heating on max still not blowing strong enough hot air, also extractor fan faulty bathroom, but these are only minor negatives for the room.
Breakfast area over-full so escorted back fifth floor restaurant but smaller selection of items here and coffee cold.
Reception said 30 mins walk to theatre area around strand (saw lion king) but walk shorter along promanade which was very busy. If unable walk option vr1 bus route. Walking back after show / restaurants even late had expected to take cab but alot of people around so felt safe to walk.
check-in later than expected 3pm and after check-out noon planned to visit aquarium which is located under hotel! Told 1 hour wait so left for another time. As stated London Eye next door with 4-D cinema also below the hotel.
Overall great location just south of the thames with main tourist sites closeby - walking distances - with good bus / underground (waterloo/westminster) and taxi services.
