“awesome few days”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

I have just taken my daughter to London for 3 days for her 21st birthday and decided to go one up from a travelodge and so booked the Strand Palace and I have to say the stay was great they have upgraded all rooms and the room was spotless and very comfortable. The service was second to none with all staff very friendly and helpful and of course the location is marvellous walking distance from anywhere would definitely stay again

Just arrived and very disappointed. Massive queue at check in and surly receptionist. Wanted to upgrade our room so that our whole party could use the sane upgraded breakfast room, but they were going to charge us £50 per night rather than their advertised £30 just because we had booked through an agent.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review. Just to advise, guests can upgrade to a higher room category by paying a supplement of £30. An additional £20 charge was levied as the upgrade was also to a higher room type. This would be the policy regardless of whether the booking was directly with the hotel or through an agent.

We do hope we can welcome you back to the hotel in the future.

Regards,
David

There is no doubt that The Strand Palace Hotel on the Strand is very central to theatres
and other sites in London. Saying this, you can choose the level of room you wish to
pay for (we chose superking beds inc breakfast) and all rooms have just been refurbished.
The real plus is the service. The concierge found us show tickets at short notice. The staff
in the Brassiere and the main restaurant were always more than helpful. Nothing was too
much trouble. We put that we would like a quiet room
on our reservation and we got one. Don't try looking for a cheaper price on the internet
You won't find one. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you want one.

Nice location. Comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Continental breakfast with fruit, hot oatmeal, milk, cereal - 8 pounds, not bad for London.

Only needed a room for 2 nights - can't beat the location for the price. Had a "club" twin room - very small, but had everything I needed since I didn't spend much time in the room. Close to many of the major attractions, and the concierge is most helpful. All staff were willing to please, restaurants were staffed properly. Would I go back - YES!

Really happy with the choice we made to stay here. The rooms we stayed in was quite small but was clean and new quality decor and fittings. It is in a perfect location. The buffet breakfast was good. When we arrived for breakfast it was quite busy but the manager was brilliant and managed his staff well so that the tables were being cleared quickly. The consierge was fantastic and booked a west end show for us with minimul fuss. Well run place.

A popular and well-run hotel. Location is great to explore central London. With all major bus lines converging on the Strand, you can get to almost anywhere by the buses right outside the hotel. It is a huge operation, with almost 800 rooms, so do not expect a particularly cosy atmosphere, but the staff is friendly, you have a large variety of food to choose from at breakfast etc, the wi-fi is fast and is for free, and you can ask for a very convenient 5pm checkout. Ok, it is not the Ritz, but it well worth the money in my view.

Room Tip: 1. As there is a renovation going on at the moment, and there is scaffolding on the outside, it is b...
