    Wonderful stay!”
    Stayed here for 4 days and absolutely no regret! The room is so spacious and its central location is just perfect - it’s right next to the Charing Cross overground and underground station. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The breakfast is a very typical full English breakfast and I would say it’s a bargain for the quality of food the hotel offers! Our rooms are very spacious and clean. It’s also surprisingly quiet given its location. The bedding is absolutely nice. Food and drink in the mini-bar are free for consumption as well. We happened to be able to greet the food and beverage director of the hotel. He is such a nice guy to greet every guest in the morning in the restaurant and give each table a pack of chocolate. He would also be around the lobby to offer help - I asked him if the hotel could help post Christmas cards and he directed me to the staff at the concierge where I was told that I could just leave them with my cards and they will do the rest for me! (Even for the postage!) During the check out the staff also helped check the weights of our luggage - what a caring and helpful hotel! Would definitely come again!

    Great hospitality ! Perfect location. ”
    The staffs are very helpful. Arrival and check-in is quick.. however we got a room with trouble at the heating system (it was very cold on the days we were in London, the temp is at around -5°C, hence we really needed a room with proper heating system). They sent a technician rightaway to check the duct and everything, moreover they upgraded us to an Executive room. Thus, we really feel being taken care of by Amba Charing Cross staff. Breakfast is excellent, besides the continental selection you can also order for freshly made egg benedicts & so on from their hot kitchen. Location is also great! only a short distance to Covent Garden & Trafalgar Square area. Bus stop & tube is just a short walk away too. I really recommend Amba Charing Cross as your London home away from home. Please keep up your top notch hospitality. Thank you Amba!

    Location - get anywhere easily
    This was my 6th stay at Charing Cross and as usual, is a good, solid and reliable stay in London. Rooms can be a bit on the small side, but its a great location for business, families and tourists. Being directly next to Charing Cross Station and Tube, a pleasant and easy walk over the bridge away from Waterloo, and 3 minutes walk from the West End, its ideal for that London visit. Not cheap, but nothing any good in London ever is.

    Not familar friendly No place for children No at all intimate
    Charring Cross is a up market hotel primarily catering for international business men working with Embassies and UK governments office close by. Facilities are excellent and the rooms generous and comfortable . Breakfast is a buffet with full service and makes a good meeting venue. Concierge is efficient if no overly friendly but overall it’s a very pleasant experience. I’d give it a genuine 4 stars.

    On site parking?”
    Agoda says that there is on site parking. This was one of the key requests I was looking for in the centre of London. When I arrived I was told there isn't and I had to look for public parking. This was an added £40 a day. Other than that was ok but too noisy at times.
    Reviewed June 14, 2018
    Dear Mr Jamie Thank you so much for your feedback regarding your stay. Unfortunately, we do not have an on-site parking as our building have the same original structure since 1864 when was constructed on the top of Charing Cross Train Station. I hope anyway we have the opportunity to welcome you back in near future. Warm Regards Maria Ramos

    We had a great stay at Amba Hotel Charing Cross, which was definitely enhanced by the staff who were very friendly and service minded. The location is as good as you get in London - easy walking distances around the city - and very conveniently located just next to 2 subway stations. The breakfast offered in the hotel was also quite good, but not the best I've had staying at hotels around Europe. However, all in all - this was a great experience and I will recommend the hotel to everyone looking for a centrally located hotel in London.

    Could not fault this hotel on any level. The only small disappointment was when I tried to book three additional nights at the end of my trip, the rate had increased from my original 6 nights. True, they did offer me a rate that was below online prices but it was still $44 over the nightly rate previously paid. That aside, do not hesitate to stay here :)

    We arrived early, expecting to drop off our luggage but instead were told we are being given a free upgrade and the room is ready now! The room was huge for London, as was the supering bed. Very Nice. then there was the free minibar with a small bottle of wine, bottle of Birra Moretti, two cans of coke, a bar of Green & Black's chocolate, a bag of crisps, two bottles of water and more. Breakfast was excellent and the staff always friendly and helpful. the place has a relaxed ambience and lots of old world charm but with all the modern conveniences. Couldn't recommend it more. Superb.

    We just spent a month travelling through Europe. During this time we stayed at many different hotels and I would have to say that the young Spanish girl (apologies but unable to recall her name) was one of the most helpful, obliging and friendly members of hotel staff that we encountered. The hotel breakfast was excellent (included a la carte if you wish for no additional cost). Excellent location close to Underground stations. Definitely recommend.
