Pleasant but disappointing due to lack of communication between the hotel and booking agent (Expedia). Our booking included breakfast, however it is embarrassing being asked twice to pay for something that is part of our package. I had to use the hotel computer to print off my itinerary to confirm the package we had.
The room was very clean and spacious however we had requested two double beds which we did not get. This was a great disappointment for my daughter who ended up on a fold up bed. It did sadly spoil what was an enjoyable few days in London.
Good hotel, well located on the Embankment. Easy walking distance to Kennington Oval. Currently undergoing renovations, however, we experienced nil inconvenience or noise. Good size room. Modern bathroom. Very quiet.
"Great walking distance from Underground and River"
My family and I stayed at this hotel for 10 nights on our vacation to London. It was in a great spot in London. We took the Tube from Heathrow and only had one train change to get to the underground station that is about half a block from the hotel. On our first night in London, we walked about a two blocks and we were on the pathways along the river. The staff were very professional. They were able to guide us with many things from directions, arranging for cabs, we even purchased tour tickets for them in the lobby. There is WiFi throughout the hotel as well as complimentary computer use in the lobby. The rooms were very modern and clean. We didn't actually see any maids in the hallways our entire trip, but the room was always cleaned when we arrived after being out all day. The pool and gym on site was all we needed, with the exception of the pool being quite cool. Although after that first jump in you were used to the temp. We were in walking distance of the London Eye, Aquarium, London Tower and tons of restaurants and pubs. All in all, we would have no problem recommending this hotel to close friends and/or staying here again ourselves.

My husband and I had an overnight stay here. We chose to stay in Waterloo as we were visiting the London Eye, London dungeons and general sight seeing throughout the day.
The location was perfect and within easy walking distance of all the attractions for us in the day time.
We saw a show in Leicester Square in the evening and again location was great as the tube station was so close to the hotel giving us easy access to the line we needed for our tube trip in the evening.
Breakfast in the morning was lovely, very well laid out, a good variation for all tastes.
Room was lovely and clean, bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very modern.
We would definitely stay here again if visiting this part of London.
