Some staff are good, but the management overall is mediocre. It is a poorly managed property. Rooms are small and dated, even though a newer property. Restaurant staff are arrogant and unhelpful. They are some of the worst I’ve seen. They have a Club Lounge idea, but it’s nothing much. There is little offered and it’s very small. It’s unimpressive. Good location. The price is way too high for what you get.

I decided to try the new Hyatt Regency Blackfriars, a category 5 property, and my experience was mixed, to say the least. The location is decent, close to St John’s and with a metro station across the street. The property is a revamped Crowne Plaza with modern and spacious rooms. The suites are almost the same size of the rooms, so don’t waste your Suite Upgrade Award here, like I did. I was traveling with my daughter, her husband and their baby. We had a suite and a regular room (719 & 720) for 3 adults and 1 baby. I requested a crib during the booking process and again during the communication with the property before our arrival. No crib was placed in either one of our rooms before our arrival. When we arrived at the hotel by taxi, there was no one outside to help us with our luggage. We were able to bring everything to the lobby and even then, no one offered us help with the luggage. That wasn’t a very good first impression but we decided to enjoy the recently opened lounge for a snack before dinner. The lounge at Hyatt Regency Blackfriars is a small room in the back of one of the hotel’s restaurants. I’m used to help myself to drinks at Hyatt lounges around the world, but when I did that there, the staff confronted me saying that I wasn’t allowed to get a bottle of sparkling water since the lounge was table service only. My daughter asked them to warm up the baby food in the microwave for 30 seconds and they refused saying that there was no microwave available. There is no food available in a buffet style, you have to order and it took 40 minutes to arrive. That explains why the small lounge is always packed with people waiting for their food. The whole club lounge experience was a debacle and I’ve never had such a horrific experience at a club lounge. The breakfast in the morning was very good with buffet and a la carte options. The price for the breakfast was reasonable - see the menu below. I had high hopes for our stay here and I was planning to write a nice blog about my experience I reached out to the hotel’s general manager during my stay and they tried to make things right for the rest of our stay but it’s noticeable that the hotel has an issue with the staff not being very enthusiastic. Maybe it will improve over time but for now the hotel is not ready to be a good alternative for Hyatt loyalists visiting London, specially with so many options available and 2 more coming in 2024 (Hyatt Place Paddington and Park Hyatt). The Hyatt Regency Blackfriars is far, very far, from a 5 star experience.
