Historical Traveler Reviews The Leonard Hotel London
Cannot say enough good things about this hotel
We have spent two nights at this charming hotel. It is a stones throw from Marble Arch. The staff is ever so helpful and each one went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at-home. Do not have any doubts about this hotel. It is a small hotel but big on the things that count. Their a/c works great too.
Will definitely return!!!
This hotel is a must if you are visiting London. We all know that travelling can be stressful but staying at The Leonard, all your stresses are forgotten.
The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and your stay is enjoyable.
The location is perfect as you are close to all the great shops yet the craziness of Oxford Street is all forgotten once back in the tranquil surroundings of The Leonard.
I will definitely be returning to this wonderful hotel on my next trip to London.
Thank you to all at The Leonard who made this stay so memorable.
Best stay I have ever had in London
This is the only hotel to stay in when visiting London. impeccable service, friendly staff, never have to ask for something twice. Can't do better for location.
Overpriced with easy fixable problems
Breaking the language barrier seems to be a big problem in London hotel staff nowdays.
With so many foreign staff employed in this hotel I am surprised at how expensive everything is.
The wireless Internet is something I use all over the world but this hotel's service was very expensive. When you pay more than £150 per night it should be free.
I got a faster speed and better value in a Starbucks cafe'
I wont be using it again.
Did I miss something?
We just returned from the Leonard, and while my husband and I found our room to be lovely, the staff did not seem professional or polished in a way that you would expect for a Hotel with the expense. There were no good restaurants in the area that we found, and the shopping on Oxford Street was disappointing. We arrived home late after the theater and the only place that was open for dinner was a KFC!!!! The staff was very vague in dinner suggestions. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy... Next time we will go back to staying in Knightsbridge.
What can I say. This hotel was wonderful! I loved the location which is convenient to Oxford Street and close to the Marble Arch Tube. The staff was very helpful, and yes, there is a language problem with the staff, but if you are patient and understanding, they prove to be extremely helpful.
Would recommend this to any one who wants a comfortable and enjoyable stay that makes you feel like you are a Londoner and not a tourist!
A haven in the heart of London
We stayed here for four nights, the staff were all helpful, understood and catered for our every need. Our deluxe room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious & well presented. I would not hestate in visiting The Leonard next time we need somewhere to stay in London.
Great location, homey atmosphere
This is a great location to stay in London. Very close to Oxford Street and Selfridges. Also across the street from Locanda Locatelli, an excellent Italian restaurant - book in advance! The rooms are a nice size and the atmosphere is very homey. Penhaligon toiletries are a nice touch. I would stay here again. The one drawback I found is that many of the staff are not from England so their English is not always the best and they may not know the area that well.
Right in the heart of London this cousy, old-English style, hotel is definetely a pearl. the rooms are warm and clean and it feels like home. only downside that ruined the staying was the lack of service (poor English speaking staff) during morning breakfasts. you can easily avoid that by walking a few munites down the road to Christopher's place. definitely a must come back place.
i can now say i have have found one of the best hotels in the world. a place where the staff are not just there, but are there to help in any way they possibly can.
i needed a discreet place in th e centre of london, to meet many of my colleagues in a busy city and the leonard is perfect in every way....not to mention i saw quite a few famous faces from the sports and entertainment industry!!
the rooms are all individual and so luxurious, it was hard to leave. will always stay there in future
