Superb 9.2 From 1,168 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Very convenient location!
We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Amba Hotel. It was a clean and comfortable room with space for two adults with two full-sized suitcases. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious compared to some rooms. (Heated floors and towel rack were also a nice touch.) We had access to the lounge as well, so that was nice for breakfast in the morning and snacks/drinks in the afternoon. Also, the location of this hotel is super convenient. Lots of sights are very walkable from the hotel, and if not, the station is attached to the hotel. My only two issues were: 1. There is a definite homeless presence around the entrance to the hotel and business nearby. They seem to have a "permanent resident" who slept against the side of one of the windows to the lobby for pretty much the whole time we were there. I know that this situation is difficult to manage, so it's hard to say how much the hotel can and cannot control. It was a bit off-putting stepping over people camped out on the steps up to the hotel and being asked for change when walking back at night. 2. I read a few reviews before we got there commenting about The Buckingham Wing. I wish that I had paid better attention and asked to be in the main hotel building when checking in. We had to take two separate elevators to get to our room. It was not terrible, just inconvenient and not ideal. There was no just running up to the room to drop something off quickly. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

My Go-To London Hotel
Love this hotel. Perfect location - close to many sites, museums and theater. Comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms. Nice amenities that you'd expect in a luxury hotel. Friendly helpful staff. My go-to hotel in London. Have stayed here many times - wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Totally awesome hotel stay!
This hotel was more than we expected. Our room was spacious, clean and with wonderful amenities. We stayed in a room at the Executive level, which included all drinks and their full breakfast package. It was well worth it. Their entire staff was professional, caring and involved with us during the three nights of our stay.
