Nice hotel right in the heart of London

Posted 25-Jul-2016
Hotel staff was great, very friendly. Hotel was in perfect location, could walk to most things but the underground was just a few steps away if you needed to go further. Bathroom was very nice, shower even better!

Exceptional staff, great location

Posted 21-Jul-2016
Pros: Location, great staff, complimentary drinks and snacks was great, beautiful, clean rooms
Cons: Only thing I can think of is the breakfast buffet
Location: Very close to Embankment and Charing Cross stations, Trafalger Square is easy walking distance, Covent Garden is somewhat close.
I was nervous about picking a hotel based on price and reviews, but as soon as I arrived, I was extremely happy with my selection. The staff is amazing...check in was fast and easy, the team at the concierge desk were extremely helpful, hotel is very close to Embankment and Charing Cross stations, making it very easy to get around on the Underground. Room was beautiful....very clean, everything looked new. There is not much of a view, but I didn't go to London to see the view from a hotel window. Room is small compared to American hotels but it was roomy enough for our needs. Snacks and drinks in the fridge are complimentary, plush bathrobes and slippers to use, thick, nice towels. Bathroom had a rain shower head and a handheld. Bed and pillows were VERY nice and comfortable. I was not very impressed with the breakfast though...it was £15 each and I was glad I did not get it included in my hotel package; just not worth it for us. Overall a really great experience; I would definitely stay there again.

Great location and staff

Posted 17-Jul-2016
We were upgraded to a junior suite at no extra cost just because it was the first time to London for one of us. The staff was superb. Free champagne was waiting for you in the lobby every afternoon. Highly recommend this hotel.

Wir waren für ein Wochenende in London. Der Emfang im Hotel war außergewöhnlich herzlich.Das Zimmer ausreichend groß mit Nespresso Maschine und kostenloser Minibar und sehr ruhig.Vom Hotel aus sind es nur ein paar Schritte zur U-Bahnstation Charing Cross und nur wenige Gehminuten zum Trafalgar Square und vielen anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Excellent Hotel in Great Location

Posted 16-Jul-2016
Pros: Location and room size
Location: Go to the theater, National Museum and Portrait Gallery and the London Egg.
The hotel is in a great location adjacent to the Charing Cross Station and Tube line. It is within walking distance of museums and the theater district just a block from Trafalger Square. Our junior suite was large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and responsive. Highly recommended.

Business Trip

Posted 15-Jul-2016
Pros: The food on-site was great, the modern convinces of charges everywhere, and location
Cons: Nothing
Location: This hotel is right in the center of the city with plenty of restaurants and things to do nearby
From the time you walk through the door everyone was extremely friendly and ready to help. The hotel is attached to the Charing Cross station so you are literally steps away from going anywhere in the city. The hotel is very modern with 115v plugs and USB charging stations throughout the room. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Location: Location close to two main tube lines, close to Southbank, Trafalgar Square, Charring Cross Road, etc.
Easy access to everything, beautiful inside, rooms very quiet and well-appointed, staff exceedingly nice and accommodating. The shower alone was worth it. I would gladly stay again.

Ausgezeichnetes Hotel in bester Lage.

Posted 11-Jul-2016
Pros: Lage, Service, Sauberkeit
Cons: nein
Location: Das Hotel befindet sich in der Nähe vom Trafalgar Square.
Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral am Trafalgar Square, von wo aus man zu Fuß sehr viele Sehenswürdigkeiten Londons erreichen kann. Gleichzeitig liegt das Hotel direkt neben der U-Bahn Station Charing Cross. Das Hotel selbst verfügt über einen exzellenten Service, die Mitarbeiter sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Unser Zimmer war makellos sauber, das kostenlose High Speed Internet ist wirklich rasend schnell. Kurzum: ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel! Das einzige, was man kritisieren könnte, wäre der Preis. Wenn man jedoch die Zimmerpreise in Relation betrachtet zu den Preisen in anderen Hotels in ähnlicher Lage mit ähnlich hohen Standards, dann ist das Amba Hotel Charing Cross für mich Preis/Leistungssieger.

Great hotel close to theater district and train

Posted 06-Jul-2016
Pros: Location and quality of room. Great bed and updated bath!
Cons: N/A
Location: Talfarger square, theater district, good restaurants close, easy train access.
We loved the hotel. Great breakfast served daily. Location was perfect for London tourist or theater goer. We caught the blue train just a few blocks away, and red stop right at hotel! We also caught the double decker bus across the street. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. If you book a room, you will hear some street noise if your room is located on the Strand street side.
