Exceptional 10,0
Comfy bed
The most comfortable bed I have slept in for a while! Room lovely and clean and well thought out. Nightlight in bathroom, plug near the mirror and plenty of hanging space. Also extremely quiet for the location.

Outstanding location, excellent service
The Amba is a new incarnation of the old Charing Cross Hotel and combines modern sections with parts of the original grand old railway hotel. The façade is misleadingly small, as the hotel is in fact very big inside. SItuated right next to Charing Cross Station and Trafalgar Square and a short walk from Covent Garden, it's ideally located for transport, shopping, sightseeing and theatre going. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I had an Executive King Room in the Buckingham Wing - the room itself was large, clean and comfortable, with a very good bed, effective black out drapes and extremely quiet. The room included access to the Amba Lounge, which offers an excellent breakfast in the morning plus wine and snacks in the early evening. On the downside, the Buckingham Wing is a long way from the hotel entrance (you have to walk down several corridors and take 2 different lifts to get there) and although the room was fine otherwise, the lighting design was strange - there wasn't a single mirror where you could see well enough to put make up on and the light inside the wardrobe didn't light up anything. Also, the bathroom was very small for such a nice room and I'd have preferred a walk-in shower, especially as the bathtub was so narrow it was hard to shower. If it wasn't for these minor points my rating for "Comfort" would have been 5 stars instead of 4 and I would certainly recommend the hotel otherwise.

Good 6,0
The rooy was not ready for 3 in middle of the night when we arrived also I called the hotel. The room is small and not enough space when you add an extra bed. The room is nice for 2. Also the next day we moved to a little bigger room and get champagne ...I don’t recommend for three. The room is not clean. They don’t take the empty bottles and ather garbage from the room . They just change towels and make the bed. Nothing else. They don’t make the room. The breakfast is o.k not more. The concierge are very good. The location is fantastic.

Perfect London hotel
I love this hotel, it’s our second time staying here and I don’t think I would stay anywhere else when visiting London. We did have an issue with a concierge who was a little bit rude about a delivery we were expecting at the hotel, but my husband didn’t get his name and we don’t want any trouble for that person either. Overall this property is amazing, well centered and has great attention to detail by the staff.
