    Great hotel, rooms, staff, spar, bar all wonderful.

    Great hotel, just to far from the city, they do provide a service to the tube, only during the day. Otherwise it's a taxi or bus, taxis are costly and the bus takes about 30 mins to get to Victoria. After a long day in the city, we normal like a few hours chilling before going out for the evening. There's nothing locally, and the hotel restaurant was closed. Great hotel, terrible location

    The staff is friendly and helpfull. the rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable and modern. highly recommended for the people who loves quality sleep.

    Location is the only factor which makes us be unhappy. if you are a family or a group try to take a shuttle to the center of London. for lone travellers it shouldn't be difficult.

    Enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Hotel Verta! New, clean, modern...really gorgeous! We were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to the 'Executive Suite'!!! Oh my! 'Wow' is all I can say!

    A little 'out of town' but didn't cause us a problem - overground just 10 mins walk so soon in the city. Also, disappointed that we had to learn about the free shuttle service to Sloane Square from the taxi driver that picked us up from the hotel?! The next morning we then discovered that you also had to prebook the shuttle service, but only 15 places available!! Bit sly, we thought, being as though the hotel booked us the taxi...!!

    Good

    The staff were it's best asset.

    The Hotel was too far out from the city & tourist areas. They did advertise that there was a complimentary shuttle bus service, from the Hotel to Sloan Square, though they failed to mention that there was no return service. For this reason we would not consider staying at that hotel again.

    The bed was amazing- so comfortable the electric kettle was faulty - it was replaced with a new one immediately we didn't realise the shuttle bus had to be booked and had a lengthy walk to the tube on one occasion but the weather was glorious and we took the river walk I would definatelybook to stay again and use all the facilities

    Nothing everything was perfect we had an lovely stay

    Ah, our room was nice I guess. And, seeing a helipad outside your window isn't a very common sight..

    No free wi-fi and the fact that it was not possible to receive any mobile phone calls in our room. £16 a day for Wi-Fi is excessive - we've traveled quite a bit and even in pokey hostels in Prague you can get free Wi-Fi (and phone signal)..And, location - a lot further away from the city that we anticipated..

    Staff fantastic

    Did not like the fact that the bar was being used for a private function meaning whilst I could get a drink I couldn't use the facilities. I would have like to have sat on the bar balcony to have a cigarette but couldn't. I asked for an alternative smoking area and was told I could take my drink outside the front of the hotel if I wanted to smoke!!! 5 star luxury facilities......I think not. Loved the hotel, the finish, the standard of everything, the staff are an asset...... but this single small niggling thing really bugged me. I stay in London a lot for work and pleasure and would have chosen Hotel Verta time and time again but for this one small thing. Unfortunately I don't think I, or my family will stay again.

    The pool in the spa wasn't open and staff were unable to tell us why or when it would be open

    I like the modern style rooms, it's clean and comfortable with nice view. The hotel staff are very kind and helpfu They have shuttle to the salon sequre which is free

    The location؛it's far away from the center and the shopping also, we can't open the windows there is no fresh air in the rooms

    Watching the helicopters come and go was fun. The hotel was conveniently located near bus and rail stops.

    There weren't a whole lot of good eateries in the immediate area, but there were several good places within about a 10 minute walk. Charges for internet were pretty high.

    The hotel was very welcoming, we were upgraded for free upon arrival and the rooms were fabulous! With the super comfy beds and lush bathrooms including a tv over the bath. The room included a nespresso machine and Molton Brown products! The staff were very helpful and friendly and the free shuttle to sloane square was very useful. We used the hotel's spa facilities after we checked out and these were equally amazing we had the place to ourselves and the showers and complimentary products provided were amazing!

    In theory this was an excellent hotel. The room was nice, the spa was fantastic and the location on the Thames was great.

    Unfortunately we happened to experience some glitches, our key wouldn't open room, our air conditioning failed to work, they brought our car to reception when we didn't ask for it (we just wanted access to it in the garage), this made us late and then on checking out I was late again because they had forgotten to add my breakfast to bill and so had to track down a waiter. However on the positive side all of these problems were dealt with quickly and efficiently. The staff were all excellent and we suspected that all of these problems stemmed from one receptionist...a weak link...maybe new? Was given my breakfast for free to make up for everything. I think we were just unlucky. The only real complaint as with a lot of hotels these days is that you can't open a window in the bedroom.

    General standard. The spa was excellent.

    Although we had family was nearby in Clapham, the location was a little bit awkward. The shuttle wasn't that well organised.

    Very nice decor and comfort and the spa was so great. The piccolo was awesome and the staff in the restaurant was nice too, but seemed a little confused and busy at all time. They upgraded our room, free of charge, when we asked for a river and heliport view insted of city view, because it was horrible. The shuttle service was very convenient.

    The staff at the front desk were very rude to us. We had a lot of questions, because nothing was mentioned at the arrival, but they were acting like they hated us already at the checkin. Not a single smile or look, when we walked by the reception. We had a hard time communicating, they were talking really fast and unclear. Ridicilous wifi price!!! And no signal on any of our cellphones. We bought a Oyster card, but we still used a lot of money on transportation, since the hotel is a bit far from everything. If you're walking from the hotel to the Clapham Junction station, it takes about 30 min. and you have to walk through a very suspecious area to get there. From the station there is about 20 min. to London City, with both train and the tube. We were walking the streets of London thin the whole day, for the whole weekend, so the long and difficult way home was almost killing us. There was a free shuttle service to another station, but no return shuttle service. Shamefull! It's a very long walk after a long day of sightseeing and exploring. On our booking reservation the price was 296 pounds, but we had to pay 308.88 punds when we left, they never told us why the price was different, but that was disapointing and deffinately NOT!!!! worth it! We almost didn't touch anything, because whe had the feeling that they would charge us at all time. Not worth the price due to the service and facilities. Almost 20 pounds pr. day for the most borring breakfast EVER. A/C didn't work as it should. Either too hot or too cold. Couldn't see the LCD screen from the tub, it was too high. Shower was almost falling apart, when we touched. iPod docking didn't work. The trip to London was a birthday gift for my boyfriend and it was his first visit in this country, so I booked a 5 star hotel to make sure the trip would be fantastic, but I was so disapointed of the lack of service and attitude in a 5(!!!!!) star hotel and so was he! Wouldn't recommend it and I'll never come back.

    Great Hotel, nothing whatsoever to complain about. We got a free upgrade that didn't make our stay less nice. Some cab-drivers have problems finding the address, even with GPS - but if you tell them that it's the London Heliport then they know where it is. If you prefer public transportation then the easiest way to get to the hotel, that we found, is to take a bus to/from Victoria Station, both line 44 and 170 stops at York Gardens, every 5-10 minutes, which is less than 150 m from the hotel entrance.
