    The location in Trafalgar square was ideal. The outdoor pool and facilities were extremely good. Restaurants and shops are plentiful close by. The hotel is spacious and the rooms modern and bright.

    No balcony in the room.

    The location was ideal. We enjoyed the room,but thought that the Bar and Restaurant could be doing witrh some money spent on them to bring them more "up to date".

    The manageress in the Restaurant was a bit "scary". Too efficient . Did not show genuine care and attention in her effort to provide the service.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The location is excellent and the size of the rooms good. We also liked using the gym and pool

    The room was extremely hot with no air conditioning. The food is very average in Oceania and the bar is very dated.

    Great place to stay, close to all the things we wished to do - the only let down was no soap in the room the first night.

    The fountain is a bit of a distraction in the foyer.The classic car great
