Kurzurlaub im London

Wir verbrachten 4 Nächte in dem Hotel. Das Hotel ist sehr gut und zentral gelegen. Schickes Hotel, modern und frisch renovierte Zimmer. Wir haben Mitte der Stadt sehr ruhig und gut geschlafen. Das beste an dem Hotel ist jedoch das Personal. Sehr höfflich, freundlich und Hilfsbereit. Wir sind mit unser Wahl sehr zufrieden.

Super Hotel an zentralster Lage

Das Hotel bietet tollen Komfort und die Zimmer sind trotz zentraler Lage am Picadilly Circus extrem ruhig. Die Ausstattung und das Personal entsprechen einem 5 Sterne Hotel, trotzdem hatten wir nie das Gefühl, in einem Hotel nur für Reiche zu sein. In ein paar Schritten ist man in der U-Bahn oder an der Busshaltestelle. Dies erwies sich als sehr angenehm, v.a. nach anstrengenden Sight Seeing Touren. Das Zimmer wird zweimal am Tag gereinigt und kontrolliert. Am Morgen erhält man auf Wunsch Zeitungen aufs Zimmer und am Abend wird das Zimmer für die Nachtruhe vorbereitet (Wasser für die Nacht, Wetterbericht für den kommenden Tag, Vorhänge zugezogen, usw.). Im Zimmer sind jegliche Anschlüsse für Multimedia vorhanden (Stromadapter, Konsolen- und Videoanschlüsse, LAN, WLAN, usw.) und das Zimmer beherbergt einen B&O TV im Zimmer und einen kleinen TV im Badezimmerspiegel integriert. Das Personal ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Der Concierge erfüllt einem fast jeden Wunsch und kann einem mit vielen Tipps das Leben in London leichter machen. Wir hatten einen entspannten Urlaub wie schon lange nicht mehr. Vielen Dank!

Stadttrip de Luxe

Schönes Hotel mit neuster Ausstattung. Geniale Lage. Personal durchgehend sehr jung und talentiert, aber leider sehr schnell überfordert.
