Amba Hotel Charing Cross, London
great hotel for tourists!
Great location, very friendly helpful front Desk and Concierge staff. Free mini bar and wi-fi, connected to the Charing Cross Train Station. Be sure to ask about getting an "Oyster Card" for underground/GB rail which is available at the train station. Walk to Restaurants, drug store, Taflagler Square, Many theaters and Hop off/hop on at the square. Taxi's right at the door and easy to get.

Amba Hotel Charing Cross, London
We arrived very early (8a.m.) after our 9 hour flight and the front desk had a room ready for us. It was not a great room, but we were so tired we didn't care. As we slept, we could hear a door slamming repeatedly so loudly that it sounded as if a bomb were exploding over and over again! When we woke up several hours later and it was still going on, I investigated to find we were next door to the housekeeping closet! The room we were in didn't look like the one in the picture when I booked it either, but again, very tired! I called the reception desk and spoke to their wonderful staff and she told me she would move me immediately and to call them when we had our things gathered and they would assist us to our new room. Every encounter with a staff member at this hotel was like this! Kind, professional, knowledgeable and extremely service oriented. Our new room, 1406 was superb! Exactly like the picture. Heated bathroom floors. Tub with shower and a nice view down a wonderful old London cobblestone street filled with shops and pubs. The Executive Lounge that came with the room was wonderful. Breakfast is lovely and a must do. We didn't do lunch offerings but stopped in every evening for a couple of beers and other snacks to hold us over until dinner. The reviews about the mini bar in your room are correct. This is an absolutely awesome amenity! The location of this hotel was its shining star. London is beautiful at Christmas and Amba Hotel is ground zero!
