    The view from the room was lovely, overlooking the Thames and I particularly loved the view from the Xi bar. We had drinks in there both nights and there was a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast offer of £10 was excellent, although we had decided not to have breakfast as we felt £21.50 advertised amount was too much.

    Despite a delay on booking in and our rooms not being available this problem was resolved by the staff in a courteous manner. The hotel was clean and quite at night despite its location. Any queries where and advice was managed by the friendly staff who made our stay a very pleasurable experience. I would happily return next time I'm staying overnight in London.

    Great location

    We stayed on the third floor which the minute we came out of the lift it felt like we were walking into a sauna. That was nothing compared to the room which was like an oven. Tried turning the thermostat down. We came back late from a conference, only slept 3 hours before waking up from the heat. The air conditioning didn't work and were given a fan from a night porter. This just moved the hot air around. Didn't sleep the rest of the morning. When checking out the girl on the desk asked about our stay and when I said it was NOT good she was in auto mode and wasn't listening and said "that's good". I pointed out the problem we had and the fact that we didn't sleep. All she could do is offer us a free breakfast or drink when we came back. This was not acceptable as I didn't feel that I wanted to go back as staff do not care about guests comfort. I have stayed at this hotel many times but after this experience I will find another hotel.

    The location is primarily why we chose the hotel but we also like the decor and "class" of the hotel.

    No would never go back was asked when I arrived if I would like upgrade for 40 pounds which included a bottle of wine and car park. When I came to book out turns out it was 40 pound per night. Which I was very anger about. Not worth 40.00 pound per night upgrade. Lots of better hotels around london for that price. Feel vry let down would not reccomend to my friends or family.

    Plus there was no pool which it did show on web site
