... book after going through security and we were unsure what to put nor sure if an adverse comment would hinder our progress. Getting on the plane we found that the air-con was broken and the temperature in the cabin uncomfortably high. We were told it was a problem only on the ground and sure enough as soon as the engines were started, we began to feel a bit cooler. Having followed the advise of the seat experts, we had two of the most comfortable ...

We got up early--or, rather, I set my alarm early--with every intention of heading out onto Kensington High Street to find an art supply store to pick up some pencils (long story: my parents bought me a journal for Christmas and wanted me to write in it on this trip, but I was having trouble starting it until yesterday when my I asked my parents for prompts that would help get me going; Mom suggested a handful ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Edwardian Berkshire London
Stayed here with some gal pals as a treat - wouldn't normally spend this much. Great location for shopping right on Oxford Street. Staff friendly enough but I did feel sorry for the girl at breakfast reception... we had to wait half an hour before we could be seated! I find this unacceptable at a "4* deluxe". The restaurant is far too small for the number of guests. Breakfast, once we finally got it, was good but I recommend going early or late (we came down for 9.30 which seemed to be rush hour resulting in a lot of unhappy hungry customers). The rooms themselves were of a high standard, lovely bathrooms (but where was our shower gel?!) and considering we were on Oxford Street I didn't notice much noise. I would stay here again but on a special offer as I think I could have got more for my money elsewhere.
Great locations, great rooms, small rooms
My wife, daughter, and I stayed here in July 2004. The front desk staff was reasonably nice. They arranged for a babysitter for us, although I had to arrange that before we arrived in London. The rooms must have been renovated rather recently, as they are very decorated very nicely and tastefully, although the room was a bit small.
The location is truly excellent. It is basically on a great shopping area on Oxford Street, next to the Bond Street subway stop, and just a few blocks from Hyde Park. It is a very safe area as well. I would definitely stay here again, although I am also fond of the Millenium Mayfair hotel on Grosvenor Square, which is nearby.
We got a good rate here on LastMinute.
My stay was not a night mare but a bad dream. The breakfast was $30- $38 and nothing in between. I am diabetic and needed ice or a fridge for my diabetes drinks.. I was charged for using the cooler of the refreshment bar... they charge if you move slightly the drinks... I never consumed one but was charged for moving them to cool my diabetes drinks.
Stayed in the Berkshire on 30th August 2004. It was the first time I stayed in a London hotel that I thought I would like to return to. Generally the London standard of hotels is very low unless you go for the super expensive. The location was excellent just off Oxford St (small roadway between Debenhams and Clinton cards, opposite Bond St station) Even though it was so central it was quiet and peaceful inside thanks to double glazing. Service was excellent, 30 mins after checking in the receptionist rang my room to check if everything was ok. I found the best rate on Radissons own website. The rate I got included breakfast (excellent) and a deluxe king sized bedroom with checkout at 4pm. Rate was £135+vat, on the late booking sites I would have only gotten a standard room and no breakfast for this price. Room was not huge but very clean and comfortable. No problems at check out.
My wife and I have stayed in this hotel several times over the years --mainly because the location is superb (in the middle of Oxford St).
Good hotel in excellent location
We stayed on 23 July. Room was small but clean and comfortable with good bathroom and location is great - on doorstep for shopping and access to public transport to all areas. Lovely restaurants just round the back of the hotel too. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in too! Staff were helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again.
Excellent Hotel in a wonderful location
Excellent hotel in a "can't be beaten" location. You are literally staying in the heart of London's shopping district of Oxford Street and nearby Regent Street. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating and the hotel is very clean. Bond Street tube station is just on the opposite side of the street and the Palladium is a five minute walk away on Argyll Street. I intend to stay here again on my next trip to London.
We were so pleased at the accomodations. My husband and 2 children stayed here for 1 week and loved every minute of it. I originally had reservations at another 5 star Radisson and after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided on the Berkshire. The service was wonderful.
Great Location Very Nice Hotel
THe hotel is very nice . The people are very accomidating. the location is one of the best in London. Most bus stops, underground station ,best shopping and resturants one to two short blocks away.
My family and I stayed at the Radisson Edwardian Berkshire London between the 22nd July and the 29th July 2003. We were warmly received by reception and quickly given our room (room 417) even though we arrived around 5 hours earlier than scheduled. The hotel's location is excellent, right in the middle of Oxford Street close to all amenities including the underground (Bond Street Station), which is around two minutes on foot away from the hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and very clean. The buffet breakfast is magnificent and excellent (making you forget all about your diet!); service quick and efficient in an exceptional environment and very friendly staff. Staff at reception desk very efficient, friendly, helpful and very well acquainted with London giving us the best relevant information re travelling around and outside London. All staff very personal: something rarely found in other hotels, making us feel at home. Lord willing, when revisiting London hopefully next year, our hotel will definitely be the Berkshire. A big thank you to all the staff. You are great! You made our holiday a real big treat. Looking forward to see you all next year. Thanks once again. Frank Camilleri - Malta
