Amba Hotel Charing Cross, London
Very Good8.0
Very good hotel, but an access problem.
The vehicle access to the hotel is through the forecourt of Charing Cross railway station and the hotel is known to most drivers by its former name, Charing Cross Hotel. If you know this, it is easy to arrive by vehicle. However, the forecourt is railway property and the hotel isn't supposed to use it, so the apps tell you to use a side street. If you use the side street, you have to trundle your bags for several hundred meters around a corner. Otherwise the hotel was very good, except that the rooms are stale because they don't normally open the windows and the air conditioning only works when someone is in the room. Service and food are both excellent and the staff is friendly.

Excellent! Location
Excellent location . Very walkable to many sights and theaters . Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Loved that they had complementary water, soft drinks, and snacks in you room. On a side note. We stayed at the other Amba location and didn’t get the same service ,

Very enjoyable stay
We stayed for five nights at the end of August and start of September. The location is excellent - we could easily walk to many of the top sites, to theaters, and to great restaurants. The Embankment Underground Station is a short walk away so travel to more distant sites is quite convenient. A real plus was the concierge service - they helped us get tickets and made some great restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was very good - the only downside was we would have liked a few more fresh vegetable options, such as sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. We stayed on the 5th floor in the wing and had no problem with street noise. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to staying there again on our next trip to London.

A wonderful experience!
I loved this hotel! The hotel was beautiful, the rooms spacious and the location was perfect for sightseeing. But what I loved most was the staff. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and address any questions we had.

Comfort & Quality with central location
Great central location at Charing Cross station right off Trafalger Square. Comfortable room. I did get a room upgrade as a gold member but did have to ask for it, and the person checking me had to confirm with her manager. The check-in could have gone smoother as a result but I’ve stayed here before and had a good stay such that the effort was worth it. My upgraded room had a Nespresso machine, which I enjoy. I had a great breakfast in their restaurant the next morning. One night for business as solo traveler.
