Great location, close to London undergroundPosted Aug 23, 2017
Hotel is perfectly located for London sightseeing, and the nearby Glouster Road tube station, directly accessible from Heathrow. Walking distance to Vic & Al Museum and Kensington Palace.

Very handy place to stay. Its just round the corner from Gloucester Road Tube station, near to places like the Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall etc. Room was very comfortable - even had a walk in wardrobe. Breakfast is excellent and the supervisor is fantastic. Only drawback was the lift (there only appeared to be one very small one) and you could wait a while when busy

Teeny Room: Big ExpensePosted Aug 4, 2017
Pros: The breakfast that was included at 20 pounds per person, was very well done, lots of choices and was quite tasty and comfortable.
Cons: The price lowered and the room for a family of 4 looked nothing like your picture, it was ridiculously tiny and quite claustrophobic for a family of 4
Location: Short walk to the Gloucster Tube station, Waitrose grocery, and Pizza Express next door. Nice neighborhood. Easy Piccadilly tube ride to Heathrow.
We stayed here as a family of 4 on our last night in London. I thought it would be a nice treat for my family to stay at this "luxury" hotel. For the price, and the pictures shown I thought this hotel would be nice. First impression was our room was not ready, which was surprising to me since it was after check in. Ok I can handle that, we went to the business center to kill some time and they offered to take our bags up. They said it would be only about 20 minutes, we checked after 20 minutes still not ready, but it would be in 5 minutes. So its finally ready, and we arrive, it the teeny tiny elevator that can barely hold all 4 of us - luckily we didn't have our bags, because they wouldn't have made it up with us, The hallway was barely as wide, and the room, was soooooo disappointing, We had a king bed and 2 twins. There was only 1 chair at the desk to sit at and you couldn't really sit there because no one could get around you because the room was barely big enough for the beds. Not worth the price at all, would not stay here again.

Nice hotel in an interesting part of town.Posted Aug 3, 2017
Pros: We were comfortable there. We especially liked that there was room in the lobby for us to meet with our family with the prospect of also ordering cof
Location: Near the underground, Museum of Natural History and Science Museum. We walked to Leister Square and Soho Square. Near Hyde Park also.
We could use the hotel as a home base for walks to Hyde Park, Soho Square and Leicester Square. We could get meals at the hotel if we wished, but there were also places to eat and get coffee close by/

Close to Gloucester Road tube stationPosted Jul 27, 2017
Cons: I wish they had a mirror near the power point where I plugged in my hairdryer.
The hotel is conveniently located to Gloucester Road tube station and buses, and has supermarkets and restaurants very closeby. My single room was small, but clean. I was upgraded to a superior room. The hotel appears to have been remodeled recently. Buffet breakfast was very good, with fresh squeezed orange juice and even coconut water. Wi fi had strong signal. They even provided free shoe polishing service. My only disappointment was there was no mirror near the power point where I used my hair dryer.

Perfect Location!Posted Jul 24, 2017
This is our second time staying at this hotel. The rooms have been clean and beds very comfortable. There is an electric tea kettle with tea and instant coffee available as well as an espresso maker in the room. It is convenient to the Gloucester Road tube station as well as many wonderful restaurants. It is just down the street from the Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum.

Handy location, tiny room!Posted Jul 17, 2017
Pros: Location, receptionist, breakfast
Cons: Size and facilities of single rooms
Location: Close to the natural history museum, V&A, Royal Albert Hall
The hotel itself is in a great location, just over the road from Gloucester Road tube and 5 minutes walk from the natural history museum and the V&A. The receptionist was amazing, actually walking me through to the lift not just pointing where to go. But my room - a single - was pretty outdated decoration wise, not what I'd expect from a radisson, and it was tiny!!!!! Barely 2ft of space around the bed. There was also no mirror in the room - just the bathroom, and no visible plug socket nearby to see while I dried and straightened my hair. Or so I thought - just pull the solid wooden base bed away from the wall, and you'll be grand. Breakfast was lovely, nice choice and really tasty. Just refurb the single rooms!!

This was my second time staying at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt. The staff was very accommodating, helping with directions, reservations and calling cars for us to the airport. My only complaint was that the air conditioning was not working properly & it was exceptionally warm last week. The maintenance worker tried to fix it but ended up bringing us a fan (which was fine because we were only in the room to shower, change and sleep). I would stay at this hotel again & I would recommend it to others as it's in a great neighborhood, close to many attractions & the subway/train/tube is 1 block away.
