I booked the hotel on Hotels.com because of the good central location.

Unique Quality: The Park Plaza County Hall is very new, opened in 2007.
This has also it's downside, many employees looked like beginners, a bit clumsy and slow, but allways very friendly and willing to help.
Our room was like a junior suite, we had two double beds, plenty of space for parents with one or two children. The rooms are nicely furnished and have all the gadgets, like internet, etc.
The Hotel is conveniently located near the Waterloo station.
We paid approx. 190 Euro/night

Directions: Between Waterloo station and Big Ben

Park Plaza County Hall is a bit hidden gem near London Waterloo station. The newly opened hotel has only suites, and thus is a very good choice for longer accommodation or travelling with children. The location is surprisingly good, as there are several tube lines to central London and the local area has enough restaurants and grocery stores to keep you supplied.

We spent a few nights on a studio suite that had a separate bedroom and living area. The floor plan was quite nice; the bedroom was right after the door, then a walk-through kitchenette and bathroom, and finally the living room with views to Waterloo station.

The bed was nice and firm, good duvets and pillows. The living room had a sofabed that could sleep two children nicely and two adults in a pinch. There is also an ample working space.

The hotel has a wifi connection that costs a few pounds per night, but the signal strength was not that great in our room and Internet access was a tad sluggish.

Modern London Hotel

Read the reviews and had high hopes for this new property along the south bank. I had stayed in many 4 star London hotels and they just did not live up to standard.

The Park Plaza County Hall is located across the street from the current construction of another hotel complex, no noise, only crane operators looking into your room during the day!!

Directly behind the old County Hall and London Eye and 2 minutes from Westminster bridge and Big Ben. Wonderful views but only if you are above the 10th floor and facing away from Waterloo station. Many convenience stores and nice restaurants nearby; Star-Bucks (1minute) Yo-Sushi (1 minute) mini-grocery and the like.......

We had a suite, actually it is a living room with hallway kitchenette and main bedroom. Very modern styles all around, nice comfy bed, not soft, just right. modern chairs and a sofa bed that folds out into a bed. The sofa bed is best for the kids. The kitchenette has a microwave and sink and alot of cabinet space. The main bedroom has a large closet with full mirror and interior light. The bathroom is marble and stone, very nice. Large walk in shower and separate deep bath tub. Two flat screen TV's in each room.

Now lets discuss why i rated this only "above average" I will start in the living room where the windows are sealed shut, no fresh air and the windows are filthy. The flat screen TV in our room was damaged, I reported it the first day with no correction. The shower leaked onto the floor into a big puddle and the sink was so shallow you constantly got splashed. The toilet roll dispenser was almost impossible to reach while sitting on the pot, and when you did you had to contend with getting it un-rolled. Then there was the NOISE. The hotel has an obvious over-pressure problem and air in the water pipes. Every time you flush the toilet it makes an incredible WOOOOSSSSHHHH and GURGLE, but not only when you flush but every time anyone above you flushes!!!!

The Fire Alarms WORK! Our first encounter with that was at 0800 in the morning; I got to meet a few people in the hallway during that, than again at 1100p.m after being out all day walking London sites. Both excuses from the Hotel Staff was Customer Fault

Elevators: While we were there (4 days) one elevator broke twice and the other two would stop at every floor either going up or down. Than sometimes it would not move at all. One evening it was so bad that there was a back-log of customers in the Lobby waiting to go up. We took the stairs 11 flights!

Dining Experience: 17 Pounds a person for Breakfast is a rip-off. We had all meals elsewhere Thank You. It was like feeding time at the Zoo every Morning

Bar: No problem; order a Beer/Guinness/Stout and you are good to go. Problem: order anything involving mixing or more than 3 things at once and you thirsty. Inexperience bar staff, they try................

This Hotel is having mechanical problems and staff problems. It does appear that the Staff is multi-national and that's a good thing, only it seems they never have worked at the 4-star level. The Door man is a very nice man and will help get you what you need. Reception is iffy.

I will say that this is a very modern place with some growing pains. It is way better comfort wise than any Thistle Hotel I have stayed at and much better than a Novotel, Holiday Inn or Mecure. Regardless; everything we experienced was harmless and fun and is a great memory of our trip to London. We made small talk with a lot of other customers during our visit and they all enjoyed the hotel despite the "issues" We would return.

Directions: 2 minute walk from Big Ben and London Eye
