I visited the restaurant with a group of friends and we all ordered something from the Christmas menu. The food was truly terrible - on a par with a microwave ready meal. The restaurant had no atmosphere and the evening was very disappointing. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt Hotel

Very happy with this hotel.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Booked through Expedia. Rate was very reasonable. Traveled with my husband and daughter. Room was wonderful: high ceilings, robes, large windows facing the busy street but virtually no street noise. Bathroom was tiny but we dealt with it. Breakfast was huge and included for three of us but had to talk staff into this for my daughter's breakfast. I had brought my Expedia confirmation which seemed to clarify this problem. Tube is across the street. Great little market and a Starbucks of all things also across the street. Able to use hotel's Internet computer and was told I'd be charged for it after a certain amount of time but never was ( I was always quick) but there was always a line. Close to great restaurants ie: Polish, Indian etc.
Would stay here again.

Horrible Beds!

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you have any kind of back or neck problems, DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! By the admission of their own staff, every bed in the hotel is bad. We tried two rooms and both were the same: sagging in the middle, every spring ready to come out into your back. We were booked for 2 nights but could not fathom trying to sleep on the mattress a second night so we left. Service was slow and the rooms are small. Definitely overpriced. The Paragon Hotel was a better stay!

Best Service ever received at Radisson

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Vanderbilt for 1 night, and I was VERY impressed with the staff and the level of service I received. I had a ground room deluxe room which was spacious and comfortable. The check-in clerk was extremely helpful and courteous, as was the concierge. I have stayed in other Edwardian hotels in London, and this one takes the cake for service and quality. Well Done!

Nice Hotel Small Room

from A TripAdvisor Member
I prefer the City Inn Westminster although neither room is that large.
The City INN is newer and I payed about the same price. The Raddison does sometimes offer deals

t stay here!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights starting Oct.29th. The previous reviews looked good and the pictures seemed alright, so I made my reservations. Unfortunately, when I got there, the room was tiny, I had access to only 4 tv channels, and the bathroom had no plugs or shelves to store things. Even worse, the blanket was something I would take camping - I had to ask for 2 additional blankets in order to keep me warm at night. The hallways smelled of heavy disenfectant, and the customer service was terrible. I would never stay there again. Even if you get a good deal, it's not worth it.

Not Impressed !

from A TripAdvisor Member
We made this booking for three nights using Expedia.Com, First Mistake ! On our arrival receptionist was over eager to tell us that breakfast was not included, but we could have breakfast if we were willing to hand over a staggering £13.50 per person(EUR19.30) for it (needless to say we skipped it and had breakfast in a beautiful cafe in Kensington for a fraction of the cost).

I found customer service to be extremely poor. Especially in the bar.
The room was satisfactory, furniture a bit dated.

We requested and were granted a complimentary upgrade (so its worth a try).

On the plus side the hotel is in a good loaction, with good transpot links.

I won't be staying here again. I feel I did not get value for money I paid.

The Radisson Vanderbilt, a pleasant surprise

from A TripAdvisor Member
As a 50th wedding anniversary gift from our children, we arrived at the Radisson Vanderbilt for a week's stay in April, 2001. What a great surprise! The hotel exudes low-key elegance near the heart of London.
Our room was large, attractively decorated and extremely comfortable.
The hotel management was attentive to our needs and we were greatly impressed with the cleanliness and orderliness of the room, lobby area, corridors and restaurant. The hotel was convenient to tour services. We were picked up early each morning after a great breakfast buffet, and taken to the wonderful sights of London and the surrounding country side. Our kids made a great choice, and we lucked out! Try it, you'll love it.

We stayed at the Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt for 9 nights. I lived in England for 6 months in 1995 and deliberately chose this area because it is quiet and accessible. Glouester Rd. tube station is across the street and houses the not only the Picadilly line, but the Circle and the District line as well. The rooms were a little small, but this is an urban, European hotel...are you really hear to enjoy the hotel??? It was quaint, the location is great, breakfast buffet was good, and the bar wasn't bad either. Great value.

Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed 6 nights at the Vanderbilt and found it very pleasant if you do your homework in advance.
1. Ask for a room with a king size bed in advance, (e-mail them) it will be larger.
2. See if you can get a room on the side of the hotel. It's much quieter. We had no noise at all and our non-smoking room had no scent of smoke (a pleasure)! The location is great with the tube station at the corner and a grocery store, bank, etc. The neigborhood is very safe, and we had no problem walking at night.

2 minor complaints. The bath tub/shower is very difficult to get into if you're short. YOu must be very careful.
3. The registration desk is small with a small staff. You might find yourself waiting quite a while to be assisted.

Air Conditioned!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had Go London accomodations at the Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt and were very pleased with the room and service received. Especially nice was the air conditioning during the recent heat wave.

Top Local Tips for London

Cirque du Soleil If you are lucky enough to catch this magical and breathtaking entertainment, check your seat is not too central. We had a box to one side and did not have any problems in seeing the overhead spectacles. Brilliant!

The Tube and On Off Buses the On Off Buses are a great way to see London initially and they include fare for the river boat. You will spend a lot of time seeing the sights because they take a while to get through thier stops. You will also need to change from one line to another depending on what you want to see. Plan ahead and study the map! Remember which way traffic flows to avoid going wrong way.Any map given by the hotels or busses are oversimplified and DO NOT include a lot of the streets. You may think you are a lot closer to a landmark then you are. Get a good map of London and study it. Don't take the tube during morning or evening rush hour unless you like to stand. They are very busy and it is cheaper to get your all day tickets after 9 am. The tube is a great way to get around and we saved a lot of time that way but is is a bummer when your feet are killing you to find out that the museum you thought was just outside the tube entrance is really 5 long blocks away.

Getting around efficently Buy a multi day bus or undergrond ticket instead of the sightseeing bus, its alot faster!
