Hotel in the heart of London

Cons: Free Wifi and/or a business center to print out tickets and vouchers without having to bother the concierge. (Not used to having to ask for help).
Location: Close to Trafalgar Sq Buckingham Palace Westminister and the Tube. We were close to Covent Garden and the theater district. A lot was within walking d
We were looking for a nice hotel near some attractions in London and we got it in the Waldorf Hilton. Close to Trafalgar Sq Buckingham Palace Westminister and the Tube. We were close to Covent Garden and the theater district. A lot was within walking distance and for travel around the city very close to a bus stop for those Hop-on Hop Off busses. The staff was helpful and knowledgable and very friendly. The rooms were clean and well taken care of. These things made our stay enjoyable.

Staff was great, but hotel is very dated.....

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, dated furnishings and surroundings....., very small "deluxe" rooms
Entering the Waldorf Hilton you think it's gonna be worth the money. Then you walk down the halls with worn carpet and faded paint.... when I first entered my room there was no power. I had to have the breaker reset several times during a two night stay. The room was clean, but very small (I am told this is normal for Europe). It was clean, but you could tell things were worn and dated. I realize that this is a historic hotel, but they really should invest in updates....... My traveling partner had an even smaller room, and her sink would not drain. We both stayed in the queen deluxe rooms....... Also, I was very disappointed that we had to pay for wireless. We spent some time at the hotel bar and honestly, the drinks and staff were great. However, I'm not used to having to ask every time I want another drink..... maybe this is normal for London....... All in all, it was just ok. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone because of the price and dated furnishings.....

Outstanding Value,Comfort,Service

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, excellent location, outstanding service
Cons: No free Internet
Cannot say enough good things about the Waldorf Hilton London. The location is outstanding for: theatre, restaurants, public transportation, and people watching. The staff went out of their way to be helpful: recommending restaurants, providing directions, helping us locate atms/public transportation stops, etc. When there was a brief delay in checking into our room, we were given an upgrade, with basket of fruit, wine, and a complimentary afternoon tea. Our room had been recently remodeled and was very spacious with enclosed refrigerator/bar and safe, sitting area and small table, huge bath with gigantic tub and spa type shower. We stayed for twelve nights and could not have asked for a more pleasant experience.

I cannot wait to stay at this hotel again it was such a lovely experience.

Pros: Quiet, excellent location
Cons: No free Internet
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff made us feel so welcome. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet. The bed , pillows and duvet were fluffy. The location was superb ! Next to the Underground , the Embankment and within walking distance of many of the sights. We look forward to going back to London and staying at this property.

Quick Trip to London

Cons: No free Internet
I loved the Waldorf Hilton so much that I am bringing my family the next time I travel to London. It's in a great location and extremely close to Covent Garden. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Additionally, room service was exceptional and the menu was stocked with great choices. I could choose a lot from the menu for dinner since I was dog tired from meetings all day. Keep in mind that the hotel is quite a ways from Heathrow. My rides cost around 65 pounds each way.

Best hotel to stay in london

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
I took my mom on her first trip to Europe and we stayed at the waldorf. My mom doesn't like to feel out of her "comfort" zone and the easy location to tourist attractions, restaurants , airport was so easy to navigate around that my mom didn't feel uneasy at any time. Great hotel the service was amazing. The doorman recognized us everytime we came inthe door abs greeted us warmly.

Great renovation, unbeatable location

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, brand new renovation
Cons: No free Internet
I took my husband to London for his 50th Birthday. Our families ordered champagne with the front desk and they added a cake and an upgrade! impeccably clean bathrooms, and lot's of space for a European hotel. Cannot get more central than this, but the rooms are quiet. no wi-fi in rooms only the lobby which was weird.

excellent position

We have been in this hotel for an April week end. we had the usual Hilton quality but, overall the position is excellent, few step fron covent garden and just ten minutes walk from Piccadilly and Trafalgar square. we could walk all the time (day and evening) that is just what we want for a two days vacation in a big city. the restaurant for the breakfast was outstanding (excep for the price because the breakfast was non included and very expensive) but I suggest to have breakfast in some of the place just few steps outside the hotel (fast and cheap). the pool and the sauna inside the hotel was very nice in the late afternoon after a walking day and before dinner.
