Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt Hotel, London
A really good hotel
The hotel is excellent. Fantastic location. Three tube lines, restaurants, Barclays ATM,supermarket, Cafe Nero and Paul’s, all within 200 feet. The hotel was clean, bed and room was great, maid service was good, very safe, front desk extremely helpful, bar and food fantastic. This was my first stay here. There is no question that I will return. Also, location in west end of London makes access to Heathrow much easier.

Recommended! Be prepared for a *small* room
Other than a small room (which I knew going in) everything was great! The bathtub was exceptionally slippery though, even with the bath mat. With the limited space in the bathroom and the slope on the back I found it very difficult to get in and out. Breakfast was phenomenal though every day! Comfortable bed, very quiet room, great service. Perfect area to stay due to the V&A Museum, Natural History Museum, and tube station so close!

The room deplorable!
The room was very small and so was the bathroom. Almost impossible to get to the bathtub to the point of being dangerous. The floor was very uneven. The carpet old and dirty. One of the lifts broke and it took for ever to get to the one left. The staff was pleasant. I will never go back to this hotel.

A Gem of a Hotel - Radisson Blu Vanderbilt
The Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt is an excellent hotel located in central London. It is three blocks away from Hyde Park and less than one block away from two London Underground Tube stations. The staff were very professional and looked to please. Every time I have stayed at the property I discover something new. As this is a repurposed Vanderbilt Mansion, you will find the hotel has a delightful maze of corridors and hallways. Every room is unique and has an authentic charm. I highly recommend the property.
