I’d been making monthly trips to London in 2023 and decided to bring my son along on my September trip. I chose a new hotel because of its location to my one meeting and the walking distance to many London attractions. ||The room was nice and well-maintained but we had to move rooms because the ceiling was leaking and the a/c unit wasn’t working and I had complained about the constant construction noise from the two rooms opposite our room. (Which they said would only be one day but it was EVERY day). On our third day they finally moved us. I had thought of just leaving for another hotel but we tried the new room.||Apparently, the a/c units (and I use the term “a/c” lightly here) can go very low but have a STOP temperature so it remained at 78 degrees Fahrenheit. There was a blistering heat wave and the a/c felt like nothing more than a small fan blowing a soft hot wind. My son was drenched in the evenings. ||This would be my only complaint as the food buffet was a good selection and the staff were all pleasant.||I would say for the price of the hotel they should cool their rooms to the equal amount of their lobby. I’m not sure I would stay again if the weather were warm as it was very uncomfortable and not conducive to a good nights sleep.

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Biltmore Hotel in London and would like to share my experience. Overall, the hotel has a very good location, and the room I stayed in was nice, although on the smaller side. The housekeeping service was excellent, and the hotel was consistently clean throughout my stay. However, I must mention that the price of the hotel is expensive. While the location and room were satisfactory, the service provided fell below the standard expected of a five-star hotel. The staff, while polite, lacked the attentiveness and personalized service that one would expect in a luxury establishment. Additionally, the breakfast experience was disappointing, with the quality and variety of food not meeting expectations. Despite the drawbacks, the Biltmore Hotel does have its merits, such as the convenient location and the cleanliness of the rooms. However, potential guests should carefully consider the price in relation to the somewhat subpar service and breakfast experience. In conclusion, the Biltmore Hotel in London offers a very good location and provides clean and comfortable rooms. The housekeeping service was commendable. However, the overall service fell below expectations, and the breakfast experience left room for improvement. Given these factors, the price of the hotel may be considered expensive. Guests should weigh these aspects carefully when making their accommodation choices.
