We loved this hotel. Its location is great. The welcome warm and friendly. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Everything you would expect from a hotel but what makes this hotel stand out is the little things. On arrival, having spent a long time in the car thanks to a protest, we were very thirsty, so the complimentary bottle of water offered at check in was very welcome. As a tea drinker, the fresh milk for the fridge in the room was another plus. The complimentary snacks were not just any snacks but quality - Blacks chocolate, flapjack, crisps and cans of coke. Wifi without a code, slippers, good quality bathroom products, the list goes on. We had a fabulous nights sleep and wouldn't hesitate to stay again next time we are in London.

We had a very nice weekend, we didn’t spend that much time in the hotel since we attended a seminar in the area. The room was good and the location of the hotel perfect regarding both our seminar but also coming in from the airport.

The hotel reception and main areas are grander and more luxurious when compared to other Amba hotels.Rooms are the same Amba standard rooms- clean and spacious. Location is central- just off Trafalgar Square. Breakfast has ample choice. Rooms facing front of hotel have better view.
