was just what we wanted, very comfortable with a great view, thanks
The room, service and locatiom were excellent.
Room with river view is beautiful!
The relaxed nature of the hotel, the helpfulness of the staff and the great view that the room afforded over looking the Thames with a wide panorama view. Despite being on the embankment we were surprised that it was so quiet. Breakfast was a very relaxed event, a good start to the day ahead.
Nothing of any consequence.
Excellent friendly staff at both check-in and out and at breakfast.
our room was upgraded due to my partners birthday. i was very impressed with the cup cakes that had been sent to our room before our arrival. The view from our 8th floor room was amazing especialy at night.the staff at the front desk were very helpfull and pleasent.
we would have liked to have booked in earlier than 3pm.
Excellent location, very efficient and friendly service and staff
study table and internet connection are good
There was no internet in room 205 and slippery in the room.
The view from the room has to be the best in London
Excellent staff resulted in a feeling that one was looked after. Also excellent coffee in the room.
The staff are excellent, efficient, warm, and very sensitive to customer needs. The rooms are large and well maintained. I always stay at the Swissotel when I'm in London on business.
professional staff and service but with a friendl, warm touch
The hotel was in a super location for the theatres and the London Eye. They also upgraded us (due to my 50th birthday) to a room with river view at no extra charge. This was a super touch and made our stay special. Amazing views from our bedroom window.
The cost of the drinks at the bar!
Location was perfect for shopping. I informed the hotel it was a special occasion & we were provided a fabulous room with a great view!! They were also very thoughtful in providing a chocolate & weather forcast card for the next day on return to our room on the evening.
The room was fantastic with views of the Thames. Breakfast choice and quality was also superb
