Review collected in partnership with Accorhotels.com
This was a pretty standard hotel. Friendly staff but really felt that the hotel had given up on providing quality facilities. This was epitomised in the lumpy pillows. All four of us found this, hate to think how old they must be. The bed was rock hard. Just all very tired and

are there any hairdressers/blowdry bars nearby that might be open on a sunday?
I don’t think there is any hair salons nearby, but there are a couple of pubs.

Heathrow Express is quick and reasonable... but will only get you to Waterloo station. Can pick up Bakerloo there or a bus to get even closer or even a (couple of) cabs.

Hello. no it is not free for children as far as I am aware. However it is a very well stocked breakfast with most things anyone might want for a great start to your day. it can be a bit hit and miss when it is busy on re-stocking items etc but usually only a word with one of the very helpful staff gets this sorted. Hope that helps.

Just wondering which is the nearest train/underground station?
Hello, lots of near ones but we tend to go to Westminster as just a short walk along the south Bank and over the bridge, and it's a nice station.

The glass in our bathroom room was heavily frosted and the bathroom lighting meant that unless you were standing right up against the bathroom door, there was no silhouette either. Fortunately, the bathrooms are a good size, so you can keep well away from the door if you don’t want to put on a show 😀

"We were on the 2nd floor and could hear street noise. Higher might be better."
"Ask for a higher floor"
"The top floor (suites) at the front have good views over the city."
"Room #511 was amazingly quiet. No views, but very little traffic and very quiet."
"Lambeth palace road view is better."
US$174 - US$344 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
