Another excellent weekend - the access to the Club Room for extra drinks, snacks etc making it more worth while. Everywhere spotlessly clean and all the staff so polite and helpful. Thank you everyone there.

Room Tip: Try to get a deal on 5th/6th floor rooms that give free access to the Club Room

The best from this hotel is its kindness, from the cleaning ladies to the staff at front desk. The rooms are very confy and good designed. The only bad thing I found is its location, you have to walk a little bit to get to the city center. Will go back again!

When in London we have generally stayed at Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels but because of the increasing cost of the HI Regents Park and the fact that a 40% reduction promotion I received by email from IHG Priority Club turned out to be nothing of the sort, I had to find an alternative to our usual first choice at a reasonable price for pensioners.

What a relief that we chose this hotel. For £105 for the night and a superb room with 1.5 times the space at Regents Park it is a hotel to be recommended, and as those who read my reviews will know I try to be scrupulously fair and accurate.

Very courteous reception staff (breakfasts are £14.75 pp and well worth it) and the room was ready when we arrived just after noon on a Friday. Arriving in Paddington station we were able to get the tube to Blackfriars station and then it was just over the road.

Staying at this hotel enabled us to explore another area of London. It is very handy for the South Bank - just over Blackfriars bridge - and for theatre land in the Aldwych area. A No. 7 bus took us to Trafalgar Square the following day.

So what can I say but that it is a lovely hotel, in an excellent position and reasonable cost.

With regard to the IHG Priority Club 40% saving that did not exist, I complained that at first Priority Club staff on the telephone did not know anything about it and then they told me that it was of little use because other savings were available - but weren't really although they will try to tell me that they were - if you are confused so was I. I did get an email from some manager that was so pathetic that I would have been ashamed to have sent myself.

It seems that if IHG send you a notification of a saving promotion treat it with great care because either it might not exist, or their staff on the telephone don't know anything about it, or it is not worth anything.

At least the reception staff at this Crown Plaza knew how to treat people, so I recommend it!

Room Tip: The main entrance is in Kingscote Street round the back, although you can enter in New Bridge Street with signs for the Chinese Cricket Club, just go down the stairs in front of you to get to reception.

This nicely located hotel has gladly surprise us. Among the best features I'd mention the extremely comfortable bed, a mobile charger device (iPhone 4/5 or mini USB), well isolated (stayed at the first floor, no noise at all). The Front Office clerks were very helpful and charm. Also, travelling from Gatwick airport, the hotel is located just in front of Blackfriars Train Station (35 minutes ride from the airport, 10£)

The bad issues: noisy air conditioning, internet is not free-of-charge (can't understand why).

This clean, comfortable hotel was in a great location. Steps from the Blackfriars tube stop (with a great pub, The Black Friar, across the street), and a 5-minute walk from the Thames. Printer didn't work in the Club lounge (we upgraded when we checked in), and computer at front desk was slow. Still, we weren't there for the IT, we were there to have a great time in London, and we did!
