Location and staff was tip top. Unfortunately I had a room at the end where it was kinda noisy from the room above and below. Overall experience was good and comfortable.

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

Above average”
Booked a deluxe twin room for 1 night, expected it to be larger than a standard room which it was not. Yes it has a espresso machine but I don't drink coffee, no mini bar. Unable to sleep due to being able to hear people in the street shouting talking loudly. Good location to get around. Apart from IPad in room and espresso machine can not see what the difference would be between a standard room and deluxe, disappointed.

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!

Great hotel ”
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.

Wonderful stay!”
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.
