Definitely not 5 star
Posted Nov 13, 2016 on Hotels
Firstly this hotel is not near the waterside so don't be mistaken like I was, it is a 10 minute walk to the V&A and not easy to get to at night, with not much around. Also your view is could be looking into another tower block.
Secondly, I stayed here as part of the last leg of my honeymoon. I stayed in a few 5 star hotels and this didn't feel 5 star. The hotel service was great however the breakfast in cafe royal was on par with some of the b&b's I've stayed in. The food looked dated and off, not much choice and very unappealing, a waste of money and I never returned, I almost felt embarrassed.
The suits are more like self catered flats, not really luxurious. The sofa in my room was very warn and the tv was tiny, for a 5 star hotel I expect the little extras. Very much doubt I will stay here again or recommend it for the price, I would say this is more a 3-4 star hotel.
