Stayed here for 3 nights for a romantic break. The hotel itself is fab and very trendy and modern, rooms are huge, shower amazing etc but the location itself does leave a little to be desired. Yes there is the Thames on one side but they don't mention the surrounding area with a Jewson builders merchants next door and a...

Very high tech clean hotel. Staff very friendly. It's a little out of the way but that's what I wanted! Great view of the helipad and also soundproofed. Even has a library! The suites are huge with separate dining area and hot tub. Very good for the price.

The hotel's website was slightly misleading- the shuttle service was excellent but needed to be booked in advance and only runs from Clapham Junction/Clapham Common at quarter past the hour and quarter to the hour. I was quite grumpy to be told we would have to wait 25 minutes expecially because it would be very diifcult to book in advance...

Really good price for a five-star hotel in London; Location is fine, however, it should be noted there is no sub station nearby, you can only take the bus, or the hotel free transfer service to the sub station (every half hour); Room was nice, although it was a bit annoying at the first as we were assigned to a...

This is a great value for money 5 stars hotel. It is a new hotel, a bit difficult to find, but brand new, modern and with good style, but there is something that is missing, could be character, the oddity of the reception, service is a bit hot and miss. SO good potential, but a few points to improve

Stayed there last weekend for one night to go and see a show. Room we had on the 3rd floor had good views of the Thames. Room was really comfy but felt the cupboards looked a bit jaded (nit picking I know). However, it was quiet from the other guests which was important. Never heard a peep! Restaurant overlooked the...
