Historical Traveller Reviews of Radisson Edwardian Hampshire Hotel

Perfect location and great hotel

from markBournemouth
Not sure I can agree with the last two reviews but everyone looks for something different in a hotel.
We stayed at the hampshire as a 40th treat for my wife. The room was a deluxe king and was excellent. Roomy, clean and what a view overlooking Leicester Square. Fantastic. The staff also were very friendly and helpfull. Could not fault the place. They even put a bottle of wine in my room when they got rumour of the birthday, very nice touch. My friends room was also very clean but not such a nice view.
Recommend this hotel but cant comment on smaller rooms, didnt see them. Booked through lastminute so got a great deal. Full price for rooms is steep but if you have the money then why not.

good loc, not well run

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed here a few times on business, and love the location, but there are problems. I've been overbooked twice and bounced (not bad as the other hotel was better), and the rooms are small. At these rates, I will probably stay elsewhere in the future.

very poor

from A TripAdvisor Member
very poor, not worth the money, cant see other nationaltys putting up with the service, rooms filthy ithe only consolation was the locatiion

Not quite five star service

from A TripAdvisor Member
Booked for a business trip and got the following feedback:

Hotel -placement GREAT
Hotel - room ok
Hotel - food normal & good
Hotel - bar pleasant
Value for money- overpriced

In addition, my MD commented that he had to carry his own cases up to his room - hardly suitable service for a five-star hotel!

Please stay away.

from nonos
I last stayed at the Hampshire in July 2004,having
actually stayed there 7-8 times before.
The Hotel has never had any refurbishment,since opened in the early 90s,and everything now is in a sorry state.I was given a de-luxe room(!),and when I returned late at night and tried to have a bath,I discovered that there was no running water in the bath.
And the duty manager was so odd,that they wanted to charge me the full rate,for this room.
Eventually I had to contact a solicitor to make them realise that they cannot cheat the guests.So please stay at another hotel if possible,or you will regrett it.

Would prefer to stay somewhere else

from A TripAdvisor Member
SMALL ROOMS and nothing special room-wise... But everything else was good. Service was ok (but not above average). It was all about it's money, maybe less. I wouldn't go again but we did enjoy our stay in London.

Excellent location and hotel

from RidingGirl
This was a great hotel right in the center of town. I usually stay at another Radisson when traveling alone, but since others were involved, we wanted something central. The personnel were lovely, the rooms expansive and well appointed and the nice little bar downstairs was a perfect spot to meet for cocktails before venturing out. Our room looked our over the Square and was great people watching. Near the tube as well! I'd definitely stay there on my next trip!

I left after half an hour!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked this hotel to stay in for 4 nights while in London. I was a bit wary becuase of some of the reviews here but i got a great deal on londontown and the pictures looked amazing! Unfortunatly when we arrived we discovered the photos were nothing like the room we got.

The room was awful. It was tiny and looked like a motel room. I couldnt believe the state of the place. It looked like my grannys bedroom and it looked like the bedsheets were 100 years old :( I got straight on the phone to book a new hotel.

As it was late in the nihgt 9pm they had no rooms to move us too and we not at all understanding. They charged us for the first night in the room. Little did i know at this stage they actually took the money for 4 nights out when we had checked in. Which then left me with a maxed out credit card when they charged an extra night.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location, but to be honest id rather sleep on the doorstep and then your closer to leicster square ;) We moved across the road to St.Martins Lane which was 100 times nicer and cleaner. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone and will not be taking the chance of trying any other Radisson Hotel :( Stay well away!

great location, really expensive, not worth it

from mchang45
The location is fantastic (it is literally in Leicester Square). However, it is pretty expensive. Other than the location, I can see no reason for paying so much for this hotel. Our room was really small. The bathroom was nice. The beds were average. My recommendation: go somewhere else and save some money. Or, spend the same amount of money on a much much nicer hotel.

Well located, but small rooms

from MarcusYOW
I booked this hotel through the Radisson website and got an ok price. Not cheap, but somewhat reasonable for downtown London. The staff in general was quite courteous, but I encountered a problem. My tv movies were not working and when I advised the night manager he told me he would come and see... I waited for him for about an hour, he never came. I called back downstairs and told me once more he would come, which he did but he didn't know what the problem was, he then told me he would send someone else to fix it and I never heard back from him... or the repair person... I was not impressed... Appart from that the hotel is in a fabulous location right on Leicester square, the TKTS discount ticket booth is right accross the hotel, so very convenient if you want to have first picks at the day's available shows. The ammenities of this hotel were pretty nice, but the back room they gave me was pretty small and the view depressing. The carpeting in the lobby could really use a shampoo... Nothing to write home about but not that bad.
