Lights out

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2006

Ok, we all know that London hotels are overpriced. But at over $300USD per night one might expect the lights to work. I arrived at the Radisson May Fair to be ignored at the front desk and then shown to a tiny room. I had an early morning flight and woke up to discover that there was no electricity. No lights and it was still before dawn. A call to the front desk was a waste of time, not even a flashlight (torch) available. Fortunately, the tv was somehow working so I had to pack in the light of the flickering tube. The hotel's solution was to have me shower in the next room which apparently had electricity. When I checked out, there was even an apology.

Unique Quality: Centrally located, but the staff is uppity, unfriendly and unhelpful.

Directions: business area and high end

Great Location!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I loved this hotel! It has been recently renovated, and everything is lovely and new. Considering how tiny most London hotel rooms are, this one was a nice size. The bed is extremely comfortable, and the bath towels are as big as bedsheets. The room service is quite good... It was one of the best hamburgers I had ever had! There is also a day spa within the hotel.

The location of this hotel is also amazing. The Green Park tube stop is only one and a half blocks away, and there is a market across the street. Picadilly is within walking distance. Buckingham Palace is just on the other side of Green Park. Walk to Harrods in 15 minutes. It doesn't get much better than this location!

The staff is very knowledgeable and freindly.

Unique Quality: No need to take a taxi to the hotel... Just hop on the Tube! The Picadilly line travels from Heathrow Airport to Green Park in about 35 minues. Exit the tube stop on Stratton Street and walk a block and a half to the hotel. From the airport to the hotel in 4 - 5 pounds!

Directions: Mayfair area, 1 1/2 blocks from the Green Park tube stop
