    5* Class

    A real 5* gem of a hotel in the centre of London. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after in a manner that oozed class. We can’t wait to go back again and credit to everyone at the hotel who are working under extremely difficult conditions at the moment

    October Stay

    The hotel is beautiful, the rooms were big clean and the beds extra large very comfy. The location was very central and plenty of restaurants near by in walking distance. Staff were extremely helpful 5* service indeed however all services did come at a price. If staying at the hotel there is no parking on site so be mindful of this if driving in. valet parking is available at the hotel which you will have to pay for. Overall it’s was of cause a treat and I would definitely recommend.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    My wife, 7 month old baby and I stayed here in October 20 and I can truly say it was the best luxury hotel experience we have ever had. We had booked this hotel due to a hospital visit at the nearby Great Ormond Street. What could have been a stressful trip was completely alleviated by The Rosewood. The building itself is unbelievable and the courtyard such an unexpected and welcome relief in central London. From the staff at the front of house, to the in-room dining, everything was perfect. My wife also had a facial treatment in the Sense Spa which she said was the best she had ever had. We would have no hesitation recommending this hotel and will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to London.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I liked the staff, especially those working in the Mirror Room. They were very hospitable and friendly. The location of the hotel is also a big plus, and the fact that it is away from the main road makes it nice and quite. The rooms, however, are a little dated, and the lighting should be improved.
