After flying via Madrid we arrived at our wonderful hotel, were received with a glass of Moet and then taken to our suite overlooking Westminster Palace! Life is so difficult!.
... the Strand and Fleet Street is the Temple Bar memorial that marks the boundary between the City of Westminster and the City of London. Going down Fleet Street we passed the Law Courts, which were quite impressive, and then down Ludgate Hill to St Paul's Cathedral. It is a stunning building and it is incredible it survived the war because it is HUGE. From St Paul's, the bus heads past the Monument to the Great Fire of London, across the Thames via London Bridge ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Plaza on the River - Club and Residence London
Wir sind gerade von unserem Aufenthalt, anlässlich des 50sten Geburtstags unseres besten Freundes, zurückgekehrt. Wir hatten ein tolles, langes Wochenende in London. Der Service und das Essen waren erste Klasse. Die Bar war sehr schön, sauber und modern. Nach dem ausgezeichneten Frühstück waren wir gut gerüstet für alle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Besichtigungen, die London zu bieten hat.
EL hotel se encuentra situado en un lugar privilegiado de Londres. Tuvimos la suerte de que se nos asignase una habitación grande, con vistas al Thames.
We just came back home after celebrated our best friend fifthies birthday. We had a long super weekend in London. The service and and the food was worldclass. The bar have a very nice, clean and futurish design. And after such a good breakfast are you ready for all the shopping and touristsights that London could offer you! Magnus och Outi
Great room, great entrance
I have enjoyed this hotel, I enjoyed the general atmosphere professional yet it did not have the stuck up attitude. I found the room relaxing yet mature, there was a desk which is perfect for my work. The beds were comfortable to sleep in as well as the texture being good quality. I would definitely recommend my company and my friends to stay here.
First let me say that our first impressions of this hotel were excellent. Upon arrival the staff were very professional, polite and attentive. We were shown to our room by the resident manager who engaged in polite conversation. Our suite was simply excellent - overlooking the houses of parliament and the river. The suite was clean and well equipped. Our first few hours in the suite were simply incredible. However, this positive experience was quickly interrupted by an almost unspeakable incident.
I booked this so called five star hotel after reading the various reviews and doing some research.
We stayed here for one night - cost £200 for our anniversary last November. The room was so spacious and the bathroom was really nice too. Bed was super comfy and we throughly enjoyed our stay at this clean and classy hotel.
The bar was very shii shii, expensive for drinks!
Would recommend this hotel.
Stayed here for 4 nights in January 2006, whilst the property has only been open for some months, the service very much reflects this. We had problems checking in, even though we called up in the morning to confirm everything. The receptionists did not seem at all interested. When we arrived at the room, the promised (riverview) was instead a OFFICE VIEW with a 10degree view of the river!!! Complained that we had reserved a river view and were told that this was the best room available.
