                      We stayed for the Jubilee weekend because we were at a wedding in London and wanted to experience the Jubilee atmosphere.It is situated right by the river, has an underground station opposite and was near to our wedding venue.It was extremely comfortable, the facilities in the room were superb especially the comfortable bed and the staff very helpful.The atmosphere in the hotel was calm, quiet and efficient. A super spot to stay.

                      WIFI needs extra payment, 5 Pound per hour. The shower is very weak, water has no pressure!

                      Excellent service from the reception staff.

                      Breakfast not included in the price (& expensive to purchase separately). 20% VAT not included in the 'total price' - be careful as I hadn't noticed this.

                      Lovely clean comfortable room.

                      Had to wait 10 mins to be seated at breakfast lots of empty tables but none cleared. Most food had run out and had to repeatedly ask for essentials such as butter, orange juice, tea. Had to wait 2o min for tea and Only came after asking for 4 times. Hotel out of the way.

                      First coming to positives - The Location. Crowne Plaza is situated at a convenient location, just a min walk from Thames and in front of Blackfriars Tube Station. Staff at reception was accommodating and polite. The hotel leaves you with an immediate impression of being a world class luxury, at the first sight. But when you enter the room, you feel disappointed. The more you stay in, the more disappointment grows. You feel irritated about so many things, repeated delay in room service, not enough cleanliness in the room, to name a few. The worst happens when you find that the water bottle you kept in the room is half empty when you reach in the evening and you are left wondering is this a world class hotel chain, the same - proclaimed luxury?

                      Reception staff were excellent. Room very nice.

                      Drinks in the bar later took ages and we gave up in the end

                      it was close to my business location

                      the hotel tried to dishonor the availability of free wireless internet, and then they said that Booked.net should have not gave this facility for free

                      Very comfortable hotel. Rooms spacious and had all amentities. We ate in the Chinese restaurant and thought it was excellent.

                      Not impressed with shower managed to get my hair wet because I couldn't turn on the controls without ducking on the shower head. I hadn't intended washing my hair for the second time in one day. Spent the weekend trying to duck the spray as I turned on the controls. The shower didn't match the excellence of the room.

                      It was very well located for our purposes , an easy 10 min stroll to theatre land , or short taxi journey , as the weather was awful .

                      Only small complaint , the bar hours said " until late " and we tried at 1pm on returning from a function we'd attended ( late I admit ) . The bar was closed , simply putting the opening hours would be better

                      Lovely hotel and friendly helpful staff.

                      We were quoted a price of £133 on the Booked.net website and then ended up having to pay vat on top of that making it a very expensive night's sleep. I consider this very sharp practice and I don't know whether the hotel or Booked.net is responsible. It has never happened before and I use this site a lot. It would put me off using this website and the hotel again.
