    Fabulous

    The location is excellent, very good beds and very comfortable. The hotel is fine and old, turned 110 years, very cordial and meticulous in the attention of the staff spoke to us in Spanish, it was an excellent treatment. Breakfast is really good and complete but a little delayed, although compared to other hotels the same score could be more varied.

    The room was small for two people, the bathroom was very small and uncomfortable shower and they only left one toiletry set for two guests. We requested transportation to the airport and an hour and fifteen later we were suspended because they did not arrive so we had to take a taxi. For that category of the hotel was not the most accurate response to their guests.

    Systems were down. No back up system. Did not get room until around 4.30 which is unacceptable from a hotel with such standing.

    Location

    I think that the Waldorf Hilton is definately surviving on past reputation - there is a general lack of staff, especially "cleaning" staff - We could not enter our room untill 1 hour after our allocated booking in slot - due to many rooms not being available and made ready [cleaned], but this did result in a room upgrade, and only after a debate with three members of staff. The situation was not helped by the fact that people were arriving for higher grade rooms and getting immidiate allocation. Value for money - poor, but we did manage to enjoy our stay, if only the fact we made sure that we did. We were there to celebrade our wedding anniversary and the only down side unfortunately was the hotel - not up to standard - simple as !!

    The staff was very friendly and helpful (even gave us good directions to the nearest Starbucks)! It would be the perfect place to stay if you wanted to go to the play Dirty Dancing.

    I thought the room was too small for what we had to pay, but other than that this was a good hotel.

    I did not like this hotel at all. I noticed some bad reviews at Booked.net, but still went ahead and made my reservation there. Big mistake! When I am in New York, I always stay at Waldorf. I thought there two hotels are somehow connected. Apparently there is nothing in common between this place and New York Waldorf Astoria. I do not write these reviews very often, and as a seasoned traveller I am very tolerant, however I made an exception this time to tell everyone to stay away from Waldorf Hilton in London and trust the reviews.

    The hotel is absolutely not good value for money, the interior design is goofy and hospital-like, it has no lobby area, elevators are ugly. My "Deluxe" room was extremely small, breakfast was poor, bathroom was tiny, bed uncomfortable. The room did not have a closet, so I was unable to hang my suits propery. There was some strange metal device that looked like those mannequins on store windows (complete with adjustable breasts!), where I was able to fit one suit. This is not a good hotel for business and do not even think about a romantic stay (your date will think you are trying to save money on her!). If you are looking for a 5-star experience, this is not a hotel to go, you can do a lot better in London.
