“Kinky 5 star, a touch "Made in Chelsea"”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We had a very enjoyable night here in this beautifully designed luxurious hotel.
The checkin desks in particular are in the most magnificent space, a marble pyramid extending to the room ending in a skylight, truly dramatic.

There's a touch of ostentatiousness about the place with varius sized champagne bottles displayed about, ince baths with champagne and the like. There's even a nightclub at the entrance when you enter leaving you in no doubt that the hotel is aimed at the young and wealthy.
Overall though a great stay was had. The bed was supremely comfortable and enormous!
Plenty of complimentary water was available which is a godsend at the end of the night.
We didn't have breakfast nor any other food in the hotel so can't comment upon these.

Wonderful location, wonderful service, wonderful hotel.

Hello enda1ie,

Wonderful! What a lovely expression of your experience to the world.

It’s great that your enjoyed every little detail especially our Moet & Chandon Marconi Lounge Experience; just one of many exhibits and promotions that take place throughout the hotel over the year.

We hope you will visit us the next time we have a little event on; even if you’re just popping in for a second!

Warmest Regards.

The HIT & HOT SPOT in London!

ME London actually make you start the fantastic London Way of Life of the West End with an amazing Roof Top Bar, large bedroom with beautiful bathroom and incredible sound system for the amateur of clubing!

Lucky enough I could upgrade for £25 in order to stay in a deluxe room located on the 7th floor with view of the Shard and London Eyes! The Balcony giving you a 180° view, the lights can change from sexy colors to intimate ... just something I would go for again!

The staff is always happy to help or even give some advices, not too much so just as I like it.

At the time of reservation, I mentioned it was my girlfriend birthday and they have included a bottle of champagne in the room, great attention from management - you really feel the whole team look after you to make your stay unforgettable and believe me I will not forget it!

I even plan to try another ME destination - why not Cabo or Barcelona :)

Thank you again and see you soon!

Emmanuel

As a London ex-pat I have been trying to find a centralised hip, fun and luxury hotel well ME is all that...the rooms are gorgeous and although the low lighting and black marble may not be to everyone's taste it is the staff who shine at ME is a city I adore the one thing I have often noticed is that people can be dismissive and cold in the service industry however at ME the staff couldn't ME more helpful and I always felt that my custom was valued....I loved Radio bar...the views of London wrapped around me like a panoramic tourist advertisement for all that is great and wonderful of the london skyline, the staff at Radio once again were the highlight...even though we had just gone up for a look around on the first night we were offered seating and looked after very well. I loved this hotel. I loved it's style. Okay I probably wouldn't bring the Mammy but I will be back and I would highly recommend this hotel on the edge of Covent Garden.

Hello 1981mary,

We indeed want to bring the edge to this area as a chic place to be as you rightly described.

How lucky were you to pop into Radio to enjoy those drinks and not to mention that epic view. We do pride ourselves on being alternative but we can definitely accommodate everyone including mammy should she wish to join you on your next visit.

Why not give us a call in advance so we can personalise your stay with us.

Warmest Regards.

it's a very modern hotel with all amenities and great service. The roof top bar has some of the best views of London... you can see canary wharf, the gherkin, the london eye, tower bridge, big ben, houses of P etc. While i wasn't traveling with kids, i did see a few at the hotel and the hotel seemed very welcoming to families. The room was spacious and extremely comfortable... good amenities and funky lighting pad but easy to manage. One note -- my room didn't have a tub. Will also had there there was a slight mishap with my room where the hotel made a mistake and they were very quick to apologize and make it up to me with a little amenity. Every place makes mistakes and it's how you handle them that sets good service apart. Only thing i didn't like is the hallwyas on the bedroom floors are too dark. low lighting is cool but these (in my opinion) are just too dark. While the roofbar was great -- we also ate at STK and were not wowed. Perhaps because the desserts weren't so great and that's the last thing we ate!

Room Tip: if you want a tub, ask for it.

Stayed here for one night after an evening function elsewhere. Although public areas somewhat uber-chic for our tastes, with black low-lighting corridors ( each to their own), the room was excellent. Although quite small it was extremely well designed and fitted, making use of the available space very well. Fixture and furnishings very modern ( bedside lighting control panel) and extremely well soundproofed. We had a first floor room facing onto the Strand, and when I walked in I immediately thought I would have to ask for a different one due to road noise - until I realised I couldn't hear any! We had a very peaceful night.

A very good hotel at a very reasonable (for London) price.

Myself and my wife visited this hotel for an anniversary treat last week and could not have been more impressed.

Firstly however, I will say that this hotel is likely to split opinion as it is very much at the 'funky' modern end of the spectrum! Anybody who prefers a more traditional style hotel with a bit of history this is unlikely to be your cup of tea!

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by a very friendly doorman who accompanied us in the lift to the reception area which is unusually on the first floor of the hotel. The reception (which looks like something from the matrix) has an amazing 'pyramid' style architecture with an atrium that rises all the way up to a window of the floor in the rooftop bar. I'm sure that the reception staff must get used to everyone gazing gormlessly around the hotel in wonder!!

We were offered a welcome glass of champagne and as it was our anniversary the hotel were kind enough to upgrade us to an amazing room on the 9th floor. Corridors were dimly lit, but very chic and the low level lighting just serves to add to the overall effect. The room was immaculately clean with a balcony overlooking Aldwych, fantastic bathroom, very well equipped, incredibly comfortable bed and some great lighting options.

After an afternoon of traipsing round shops, we returned to our room to find as complimentary bottle of champagne which was really appreciated and a very nice touch,

Radio Bar was very trendy with great views over the London skyline and we were invited up for complimentary drinks and canapes in the afternoon. Residents get access via a special lift on the ground floor where a member of staff gives you access to the 10th floor.

Other points to mention:-

- Staff all very friendly and efficient but particularly the doorman & the concierge.
- Brilliant location, in easy walking distance of Covent Garden, the West End, etc.
- Didn't use either restaurant but both looked very modern (as you'd expect) with varied menus.
- One minor gripe was that when we ordered breakfast in bed in the morning we were charged £3 for the privilege and then charged a £7 'tip'. Not something that changed our opinion of the hotel but something we will know the next time we visit.

Overall, we were made to feel very special and although it is a bit 'pricey' we would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends. We will definitely be returning to celebrate our next 'special occasion',

Dear StuWeightman, thank you so much for this fantastic review. You are very right, Me London is not a traditional hotel…. We are glad you were impressed by our unique Atrium and all what it has to offer. We enjoy exceeding our guests expectations and even more when we are aware our guests have something special to celebrate, we are glad you enjoyed our Energy rooms with stunning views with a fresh glass of champagne.. that is call luxury.. Once again, thanks for sharing your ME London Experience with the world!

Was booked in for a Champagne Afternoon Tea for my birthday celebration with my husband as a treat from our son, must admit did not know the hotel and from the outside looked a bit plain but upon entering the Marconi Lounge the decor was fabulous, the champagne and afternoon tea was fabulous we was well looked after by Naheed our waiter who was very helpful with his information on the variety of teas on offer would definitely recommend this for a special celebration.
