About Plaza on the River, London

5-star suites with kitchens, on the Thames

Overlooking the Thames
The 5-star Plaza on the River puts you on beside the River Thames, across the water from the Tate Britain art gallery. You'll also be a 15-minute walk from Westminster icons, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

See the Eye
A 15-minute walk along the river brings you to the London Eye, and the Imperial War Museum is under 1 mile away. Vauxhall Tube Station is an 8-minute walk from your front door.

Tea or sashimi
The swanky Chino Latino Brasserie features an Asian-inspired menu and decor, and offers sushi-making classes. In addition to an onsite fitness center, this hotel offers in-room spa treatments, including facials and massages.

Spread out

Plaza on the River, London
Great Room
Room was Great, Great View, Great Bed, Electric curtains. But there was black hairs in the shower
Ken, us3 night trip
Plaza on the River, London
Both me and my wife are struck with the flu here in the United States. Could not make our flight nor could we make the trip. This hotel would not work with us on our booking. Even though we stay there probably 30 times in the last two years
Phil, us3 night trip
Plaza on the River, London
The service was great. However, the walls are paper thin so I was woken up or kept awake every night of my stay by other guests.
Brittany, us3 night trip
Plaza on the River, London
Great modern place to stay
Very helpful staff! Overall had a very pleasant stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The food in the restaurant was outstanding as well as there lounge breakfast. My only complaints would be the serving staff was a bit on the untrained side as for knowledge and etiquette. As for appirance, the hotel is very nice but please do something about the hideous carpet!
