“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Our stay at the ME London Hotel was perfect. The hotel is very modern, well-located on the Strand just a 10-minute easy walk to Trafalgar Square or the theatre center, and near many nice restaurants and shops. our room was delightful, looking out over a side street where we could see the theatre marquees for three popular plays. The room itself was the largest I have ever encountered in Europe. The walls were white leather, and the lighting was just pure fun.

Dear Jano18,

Thank you so much for your gorgeous review! I are glad you found are location great for your getaway, as you well mentioned, a stone throw from almost all city attractions, shops and plays.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and taking advantage of all possible space so our guest can enjoy and make the most of it. That is what we want, our guest enjoying the sexy light, it is definitely pure fun! We hope you manage to try all your favourite colours and more!
We hope to see you back soon!

As a treat we stayed here, it is not cheap but compares favourably with other 4/5 star in the same location around Covent Garden. All the staff are first rate although it is unusual that apart from the concierge and reception the staff wear relaxed dress so when they approach you (they are all friendly) it is not obvious who they are.

The public rooms and bar are luxurious with quality furnishing throughout, a nice feature is the Marble Pyramid that runs through the whole building and the interesting light show in the lobby, design fans will love it. The bedroom we had was overlooking the Strand and is first rate with a really useful touch screen panel by the bed to control the tv, lights and air conditioning.

Room service is quick and if you do venture up to the Marconi bar on the roof (I urge you to do so) you will be well looked after but do be prepared to stand if you only want a drink, despite being a resident there are only so many bar stools to go round. Food is very nice and the view over London is spectacular.

I booked a table in the Radio Rooftop Bar a month in advance for my son's university graduation party. There were 11 of us in the group - family, friends and a university lecturer - and we were given a wonderful table complete with our own (very attentive) waitress called Anna. I was advised at the time of booking that there is a minimum charge of £50 per head before 9pm and £100 per head after 9pm for reserved tables. Having shopped around, £50 per head seemed quite reasonable for venue with such good views and great service. We had a brilliant evening full of tapas washed down with cocktails and laughter and our only (minor) complaint would be that the tapas portions were rather small. Nothing was too much trouble for Anna - she was happy to top up the (free) glasses of tap water (it was a very warm evening) and even take photos for us. Would we go back again? Absolutely! I also booked 2 rooms for my husband and I and our 2 adult sons. Next to each other on the 7th floor, they were quiet and cool (great air conditioning). Best nights' sleep for ages. A glass of Prosecco on arrival at check-in is a nice touch. Thank you ME for taking such great care of us and me!

We stayed there twice recently and the hotel has some pros and cons (as any other property in the world ;).

Cons:
- room door seems not to be sound proofed well as you can hear the noises from the corridors, including other doors being closed. We could hear as well the noises from music played in the restaurant during the night
- breakfast: it's not a typical buffet breakfast as most of the items you would find in other hotels' buffets are available a la carte and at extra charge. What's even more interesting, there were no vegetables at all on display (unless we are blind :) Breakfast staff looked a bit lost at times and were not capable to clean the tables quickly
- room safe: in our room it was hidden in the drawer which meant the lid was at the top and it was really hard to pull it up to open it
- shower: the cord is hidden in the wall and you can easily pull it out but here comes a surprise - it will keep rolling back into the wall as there is no facility to stop it.

Pros:
+ location, location, location! steps away from Covent Garden, Thames and walking distance to the entire central London, this could not get any better
+ attentive reception and bell staff
+ good steak restaurant (although restaurants are not managed by Melia as I learnt)
+ views from the roof Radio Bar (but you need a reservation before in order to get there).

Design is a matter of personal taste - black walls, dimmed lights in the public spaces though the rooms are bright and quite spacious.

Overall, very good hotel with some minor (but irritating to us) drawbacks.

We will be back for sure!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the higher floor to avoid noise from the steak restaurant

Inside is light, outside its dark.
This hotel confused me!
The Hotel it self is luscious and well decorated & the roof top bar is a MUST!!!! Stunning views, but do book.
The corridors, areas are very dark and made me a bit wobbly on my knees walking around, however the rooms are BRIGHT!! Fresh clean linens crisp white sheets, white surroundings & a comfy bed.
Staff are basic friendly, I feel they could do more. The hostess in the roof top bar was also very difficult even though the bar was relatively quiet, all in nice, but the could better.

Room Tip: Go high up!!!

We stayed at the ME London last december. Loved the location. We were able to walk to the various attractions and a whole lot of shows. The room was clean and sufficiently big. The hallways are a bit dark. I would stay here next time when we visit London.

We stayed for 1 night for my husband's birthday on 26 th July. For a small amount we upgraded to a passion suite, room 211. A bottle of champagne was in the room with chocolates. The next morning a light breakfast of pastries was brought to the room.
Our room was quite and spacious.

The hotel made our stay very special. Thank you!
