Nice hotel, short walk to major sights

Pros: Short walk to many attractions. Local market just a few steps from hotel. Tube station and busses near by. Clean and quite.
Cons: I did find the room a bit cold even though I raised the heater level.
Location: Across the river from Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Parliament. Not many restaurants near by, but there were walk across the river on Whitehall.
My sister and I recently stayed at this hotel (January 2017). The staff was very pleasant and professional. The room was a bit small (from an American standard), but very comfortable and clean. It was but a short walk to Westminster Abbey, Parliament and tube stations (2 of them near by). The decor was modern and tasteful. The beds were lower to the ground than accustomed to, but very comfortable. Nothing negative to comment about. Would definitely recommend to someone who has never been to London before.

Interesting

We returned in midApril, two couples in our late 50's. Stayed two nights then onto Glasgow. The hotel itself is clean but not friendly. Located right on the Thames so transportation or walking to everywhere is very convenient. One of our rooms fronted on the rail tracks and garbage bins. The other on the small car park so be specific is you want to take advantage of the location and views. Cafeteria style food downstairs a bit pricey, crowded and rushed. Didn't try the restaurant but the bar was nice. I wouldn't take children there unless you are spending most of your time somewhere else. It appeared that the hotel is opening timeshares or condos or something so there was a fair amount of construction going on as well. IT ws good for the price and the length of stay in the City.

Great Location

The Riverbank Park Plaza was in a great location and very modern for a European hotel. Complimentary breakfast was pretty good and a real bargain with the awful exhange rates. The hotel was conveniently located to the Tube and in great place for sight seeing around London. The rooms were a bit small, but had modern TVs. For some reason they did not replace dirty glasses, but there was a lounge where you could get new ones.

Watch the details

This is a modern hotel with beautiful interior design. However, our experience is not pleasured. The bath did not have cool water and the sink was leaking. The light at bathroom is not allowed to turn off. With light going through the bathroom glass door, no one can sleep at night. In the end, we had to remove the light bulb from the ceiling. The worst was no one came to fix the problem even after notifying the front desk!!!This hotel is located in Vauxhall where is very quiet and hardly to find any restaurant or convenient store."

fabulous hotel

We have traveled all over the U.K. with my husband being Scottish, and I was very worried about the hotel not living up to my expectations, but It was awesome....the only drawback is its not real kid friendly, but our kids didnt seem to care, they loved it too.
