Staff is superb and service excellent. Top quality lobby. My section of the hotel needs refurbishment- old carpets, slightly uneven floors, Despite the shortcomings I will come back because of the top quality staff and service

Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast good value, restaurant and rooms fair value. Housekeeping needs attention. We brought our own good face cloths ( none were initially provided). These were taken the next morning and we were given very inferior ones. Next day these were taken leaving us with none and we had to call reception . Handtowels went from 4 down to 1 one morning etc. This was disconcerting.

There are two lifts (elevators), and on our second day one was shut down. It was still not working by the end of our trip, and having only one elevator made things very frustrating. It took forever to get up and down and the lift was always full to the point where we often had to wait for the next one. Worse yet, there were no stairs to use. In our room, there was no remote for tv second TV and after out first day of sightseeing we came back to find the second remote was apparently taken by housekeeping. We called and the maintenance worker who came was very nice. He said that the second TV was for some reason unplugged as well. When we checked in…after the correct check-in time…we were told the room was ready, but they just needed to remove a cot because the last guest had a third person in the room. I was told it would take five minutes. 20 minutes later I approached the front desk again to see why things were taking so long. I was given my room keys and when we got into the room we found the cot was still there! There are no good restaurants around that are within a reasonable walking distance. The hotel has a great breakfast though, but we got it as a package with the room so I don’t know about the price. The positives are that the property is in a great location for sightseeing Westminster, Buckingham, and the mews. And if you like quiet this is the place for you because the place is dead after 8:00 pm.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Property is terribly maintained. Rooms standard is at par with Motel 6 of USA. Staff is not professional. Room furniture and the carpet is visibly torn. No chain hotel in the USA will approve this condition of Hotel and still be operational. Even the Motel 6 Bathrooms are better designed than these bathroom. With all this, still you pay US$ 700 per night. We booked this on the name of Taj brand but it’s not close to anywhere it. Please stay away from it particularly if you are coming from the USA.
