What a wonderful first trip to London! I will definitely be back to this hotel! From the moment that we arrived I was captivated by the ambience of this property. Berners Tavern off of the lobby is a must visit. The staff throughout the hotel were amazing, but especially those at the front desk. I can't say enough nice things about the people working in this hotel, they made me feel right at home and made each day spent here special.

An outstanding experience at the London Edition. I’ve been a road warrior for many years and this will go down as one of the best properties I’ve stayed in. The staff were so genuine, warm and attentive. I appreciate how well staffed the bar was, how each staff member clearly enjoyed the art of hospitality and all the details really mattered to them. One shining star was our housekeeper Nicolette who was talented, charming and funny. Also- special shout-out to the best breakfast in London at the on-site restaurant. We enjoyed a few mornings there and the food was fantastic. Check in at the hotel started on the wrong foot with a major system failure when they lost our reservation. We landed at Heathrow, turned on my phone and saw an email from the staff saying that they would not honor our booking (which was made two months prior). This is not what one wants to see following a 10 hour red eye flight. I hope Annalisa is offered training to compose kinder emails going forward as this was a rookie mistake to be told that we would need to book elsewhere that would have cost the hotel many thousands of pounds in lost revenue. We decided to proceed to the property anyway to see if this was all a mistake. Upon arriving at the hotel the team scrambled to assist and got everything worked out after a couple of hours. I appreciate that the team was looking for solutions and all in all, the superior service each step of the way for the duration of the trip paired with the beautiful property and fantastic location all made up for that rough start.
