Always a pleasure to stay here and if anything the service is more stunning than ever. Dinner in the bar, breakfast in Le Balcon plus receptionists and bell boys - absolutely amazing service everywhere. Lovely modern room with a great bathroom. Will be back soon.

Hi. I do not know the room numbers. However you may ask for a room in the front of the hotel. Side rooms do not have a good view. I hope this may help.

Good afternoon, we stayed in room 305 (suite) which consists of bedroom and living room. Both rooms are very spacious and full of light during the daytime. Bedroom has two windows overlooking both Crimean War Memorial (Waterloo Place) and Pall Mall. Hotel kindly arranged extra bed for our daughter in the living room.
