Stayed here four nights on the first leg of a multi city/country trip. ||We had a standard double room. The room is not large, but has a lot of useful storage space making it possible to unpack and unwind in peace. The bathroom is nice and large. The bed itself was comfortable with nice linens—waking refreshed after a long day of exploring Westminster and other areas. Well appointed.||The Conrad has great service. From check in to check out we had a positive interaction with every Conrad staff member. We had breakfast at the Blue Boar—they do a continental breakfast with eggs to order. We also had room service late one night. All of the food was good. ||The location is a stones throw from many iconic locations/sites. As an example, you can see Westminster Abbey and Big Ben a short walk from the hotel—it felt like a dream being jet lagged and walking/stumbling out the door of the hotel and looking up and seeing both. ||I have recommended the Conrad to friends and family.

This hotel can’t be beat! From the moment we stepped into this hotel we were treated like royalty. Marco at the front desk was very kind and helpful - we were even offered a room upgrade. The rooms are modern by English standards and extremely well cared for- very clean! The morning buffet at Blue Boar offered something for everyone; even as a person with food sensitivities, I always found enough to eat. We also enjoyed Blue Boar Pub in the evening for supper - we liked it so much, we returned three times! The executive lounge was a great place to grab a snack and beverage. After touring around the city for five days, I can confidently say that this hotel is in the BEST location. Many must see attractions are within walking distance but even if you need the underground, it’s just across the street. Every single member of staff was lovely and hospitable. We were blown away by this hotel and hope to return. Thank you!
