Having to wait for our room
Everything. All staff were friendly and helpful.
Excellent service,,staff very welcoming and very efficient
Perfect location for theatre land. Lovely rooms. Very helpful staff who couldn't do enough for you.
being greeted with a glass of sparkling wine & a rose. The friendliness & helpfulness of the staff.
No complaints at all
The refurbishment is brilliant and the hotel staff amazingly attentive - nothing is too much trouble. This is a hotel in a fantastic location for seeing London and I would highly recommend.
All the staff were just amazing. Friendly, polite and urgent. We had a little complain for our first room we checked in, front dear staff came upstairs right away and brought us to the new upgraded room. Their service gave us the comfort all thru the stay. Great location. It was last min stay extension and couldn't find hotel in the area we wanted in the way we wanted. We picked this hotel based on review and convenience since we didn't have that much choices left. We've been to Woldrof Astoria, Park Hyatt, etc... When we got there, had little questions to myself if I made right choice....but it was ok, and most of all, the service is up to the five stars that make everything great.
The staff could not have been more welcoming, the room itself was beautifully appointed and comfortable, the beds and bedding incredibly comfortable (since bought the pillows after being advised if the brand by the hotel!) - all in all a perfect experience.
Excellent location, good breakfast, good wifi
Bed was too short (legs sticking out the end) and uncomfortable pillows
Excellent hotel. Fantastic location
Staff very informative on room options Great location Fabulous room facilities and response to issues reported was immediate.
I couldn't fault anything about the staff. All friendly and nothing too much trouble. Complimentary nibbles and drinks in the mini bar and a good location for theatre land.
Nothing not to dislike.
Great hotel and staff will -definitely be visiting again.
Staff were excellent - enthusiastic and welcoming. Room on 6th floor was clean, comfortable with a wonderful view over London. Ideally located for our visits to theater land, Buckingham Palace and St Paul's. With the additional benefit of having the hilarious Fawlty Dining Experience in the hotel. A most enjoyable stay. Will return to the Amba any time I visit London.
The bar was a little dull and expensive - although even that was more than compensated by the service and attention of the 2 young men behind the bar. No real complaints and any minor issues more than compensated by the advantages of the hotel.
Wonderful room. Very luxurious hotel. Very friendly, helpful staff.
Excellent location Good value for Money Extremely friendly and helpful staff Consierge service brilliant Happy, smiling people Very clean
For breakfast, I missed fresh tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, paprikas...
These comments are based on a 7 days stay (10/01-17/02). The Amba Charing Cross is set on a renovated historical building, providing most of the conveniences a tourist would value in a modern hotel, including impeccable new bathrooms. We reserved a deluxe double room which, although comfortable, suffered from lack of storage space (there were no drawers and only limited shelf space in the small closet). It seems that this a general feature – an issue if you plan to stay for more than a couple of days. The day after our arrival, the exceptional customer service standards of this hotel became evident as we were granted an upgrade to an executive suite at no extra charge. These standards were continuously expressed by all the staff we encountered during our whole stay: from the exceptional reception-desk team (our personal thanks to Elena, Laura and all other members), the Concierge team, as well as the cleaning staff. The Amba’s direction (attn. Mr. Glenn Hallam, General Manager of Charing Cross) should be proud of these people. We are impressed and thankful.
Mini bar was not replaced even though I brought it to attention of the reception
Location is very central, Amba lounge is a great extra
Very friendly staff. Handy for our trip on the river, and a night out around Covent Garden, slept very well.
LOCATION STAFF AND SERVICE CLEANLINESS
Free wifi, use of ipad, excellent front of house manager attempted to remedy my bad experience with the heating.
Cold, cold room and my request for the heating to be fixed while I was out for the evening was ignored.
Staff were excellent. Receptionist Elena in particular was lovely.
Hotel is convenient for trains, tube and buses, shopping, museums etc etc. Staff friendly and helpful, rooms bright, clean and modern. Price is comparable to other hotels in area. Would highly recommend.
