    Waldorf Hilton Hotel London

    by

    This is another one of Londons flashy hotels. It is not cheap, but you should not be disappointed here! A lot of the rooms have plasma screen TVs and have music and video on demand.

    The showers are pretty good too with a shower tower that has both shower and body jets. There is also climate-controlled air-conditioning·

    Unique Quality: If you are staying in the hotel, you get complimentary access to the LA Fitness Health and Leisure gym. It offers lots of exercise classes as well as a Jacuzzi, sauna, steam rooms and big gym. There is also a swimming pool.

    This hotel is near the theatre district, so is a good place to stay if you are planning to take in several shows and have the cash to splash.

    Directions: Charing Cross Underground

    Fabulous location, Priceline strikes again

    by

    This was my third time using Priceline for London and it was the best yet for 2 nights in June, 2004. With sticker shock US exchange rates, for $100 per night + taxes (bid 4* in several central districts) this hotel was a steal, beautifully located near Covent Garden/Leicester Square and restaurants, theatres, shopping, a 5-10 minute walk from the Piccadilly tube line coming from Heathrow and the Central, District and Northern lines as well. Didn't feel uncomfortable walking here at night, even around midnight.

    The hotel is undergoing some renovations, the elevators and main lobby were getting a makeover but it didn't affect our stay.

    Room-not huge by US standards but big by London standards, very comfortable king size bed with lots of pillows and a down comforter, in room safe, clothes presser, small refrigerator w/2 bottles of water, hair dryer, internet connection, plasma TV and AC.

    Bathroom-shower had plenty of hot water, toiletries included bath gel, soap, shampoo and lotion, huge fluffy towels and two things that Americans seem to get hung up-washclothes and a sink with hot and cold water from the same faucet.

    Check in and out was quick and pleasant, the staff courteous and knowledgable.

    Only 2 complaints-the toilet took forever to refill and was quite loud and the bathroom door was glass letting the light shine in from the bathroom window which woke me up at 4:30 both mornings.

    A Spacious Bathroom is a MUST!

    by

    The room was comfortable and modern.....a cozy atmosphere with a hint of the tropics surrounding (wall reliefs of Hawaiian flowers surrounded the room........even WILD ORCHIDS were in bloom!)

    The bathroom was fancy with enough counter space for my "Chem Lab".....however a bigger bathtub would be essential for a Geisha!

More about Waldorf Hilton Hotel London

Excellent Staff, Beautiful Rooms, Great Location

by TripAdvisor Member Thom228

I travel a lot for business, so I have become quite a picky customer when it comes to hotels and the services they provide. I must say that I found our stay at the Waldorf London to meet and exceed all of my expectations for a nice hotel. First off, the staff seems to have gotten a hold of how to conduct themselves at the level of a Waldorf property. They were friendly and extremely helpful.

I know some people find the very modern rooms to not be in their taste, but that is simply what it is - a question of taste. I feel that while the decor had many modernist touches (halogen chandelier over the bed, mohair blankets, plasma tv & "floating" sinks in the bathroom), it still retained a feeling of refinement. I have no idea why people complain about the deeply frosted glass door that closes off the toilet from the rest of the bathroom. It does not let anybody see through and any shocking noises that might be created are muffled.

Finally, the location is superb. You can walk to Covent Garden and take the tube to there or take a longer stroll up to SoHo. Also you are only 5 min walks from the British Museum & Trafalgar Square.

Finally, I would not suggest this hotel for families with small children. The rooms are simply not designed for little ones in mind (lots of sharp corners and slick floors). Also, the atmosphere in the rather stiff upper-lip dining room doesn't lend itself to screaming children.

Avoid during the renovations

by TripAdvisor Member PereUbu8

Stayed 4 miserable nights in late July 04; was assured that renovations would not affect the stay but... the hot water did not work on one evening until the next morning, the fire alarms went off 3 times one night (1:00 am, etc), the staff misplaced a delivered document (actually a driver's license) and were quite rude about the matter, until they "found" it. Poor room facing an alley where trucks picked up the building materials at 7:00 every day we were there. The staff at least had the presence of mind not to ask on check out about our stay. Aviod this hotel now and in the future.

Great hotel, but bathroom didn't make sense...

by A TripAdvisor Member

Excellent location near Convent Garden, a short walk to the tube.

Lukewarm reception.

The floor between the bathroom and bedroom were "on the same level", so when water seeped through the shower door, it made the whole floor wet.

Room was outfitted very nicely with a plasma/LCD TV and multi-jet shower, no bath though.

Good location, good refurbishment

by TripAdvisor Member RichardLister

Stayed there a few times now for business. Very good tourist location, pretty good business location (just down the road from the City).

Rooms have been nicely refurbished, very modern, brand new bathrooms. Standard rooms have "raindrop showers" which look good, but need better water pressure. Some of the standard rooms are bit small, but the quality makes up for it.

Wired internet (quite expensive) and nice big widescreen lcd tv's (not great tv reception though). Very comfortable bed with duvet and big soft pillows. No minibar, but two free bottles of still water in a little fridge.

Lobby is a bit strange - they've tried to make it look modern, but it looks more like an operating theatre with a few designer chairs left in it. We did see Scary Spice in there one night though!

Would definitely recommend it.

Hotel in London

by minlex

This summer we will be spending a few days in London. We are looking for
a pretty central location near Hyde Park, we will be doing all the "touristy" things in London like theatre, Big Ben, Picadilly and the like. I have found the following 8 hotels, but would hate to pick one that is in a bad area or far from all the attactions. Any suggestions on the following list to either avoid, or select would be appreciated. Also, if any are far from the attactions that would also be helpfull.

Hilton London Hyde Park
Swissotel The Howard
The Waldorf Hilton
The Trafalgar
Sheraton Belgravia Hotel
The Park Lane Hotel
Hyatt Regency - The Churchill
The Mayfair - Chesterfield

I have stayed at both the Waldorf and the Trafalgar. Both are very nice and have great West End locations. I prefer the Waldorf, but it is the more expensive of the two. The Waldorf is in the heart of the theatre district, and just a short walk to Covent Garden. You won't go wrong with either.

A good place to read about travellers' opinions is www.traveladvisor.com. As the other posters said, all of these hotels are in a good area and close to the major London attractions. It's easy to get around London so a hotel a bit away from the geographical center is not a problem. Transportation is very good.

I stayed at the Hilton Olympia on Kennsington High street a few weeks ago and it was fine. I reached Hyde Park in 5 minutes via bus.

Re: Hotel in London

by Maria_travels

Hi everyone, In my view Swissotel The Howard could be a good choice as this was the one I was referred to when I was planning a trip there but the trip was put off due to my work load.But, my cousin is going the next month and and he was clever to book his reservations in a hotel in London via url=http://www.sletoh.com/r7183.html that offered good comparisons according to our will
