a good non-traditional modern quiet hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 2, 2006

We hadn't planned on staying here. London was a stop-over on the way to Greece. We had booked The Strand Palace hotel on the Internet, mainly because of the location and the price. We checked in, spent 30 minutes there, hated it and left, sacrificing our first night's payment. There we were on The Strand with our suitcases.

The next hotel we passed was One Aldwych. After the horrible experience we had just left, the lobby looked like heaven. It was really expensive, but we probably would have paid twice the amount.

Service was excellent. The lady who checked us in came from behind the counter and personally led us to our room. The room was small, as per European convention, but suberbly furnished in modern style, spotlessly clean, had lots of high-tech gizmos, and a luxurious bathroom.

This hotel deserves its place in the Leading Hotels of the World.

Directions: On the corner of Aldwych and The Strand, close walking distance to all the West End attractions.

Five star luxury - 4 star price.

If there is one thing I can't stand about five star hotels is obsequious service. Thankfully at this place it is courteous and swift, and no more. I just hate some waiter worrying about the exact placing of a fork - as if it really matters in life.

This hotel has won numerous awards, partly for the service standards already mentioned and partly for the modern, minimalist design of the hotel.

I especially like the lobby and bar area, which occupies an imposing triangular site in the heart of theatreland.

The flat-iron, triangular shaped building was the former offices of a newspaper years ago, and is rumoured to be favoured by Madonna (the singer rather than the mother of Jesus), although she probably didn't have a standard room.

Unique Quality: Several virtues to mention here :

The beds had some of the most comfortable bed lined I have ever come across - I found it difficult to get up in the morning.

The underground pool, whilst not very large is perfectly servicable, and a good place to chill out after a hard day's sightseeing.

The Location was excellent - saves loads on taxi fares to theatres and restaurants.

There are over 300 original works of art dotted around the hotel, including at least one in every guestroom.

In conclusion, an excellent hotel, although I was glad it wasn't me who was paying the bill.

Directions: The name of the hotel = the adresss.

Just off Strand opp. the Savoy.
