The famous Waldorf Hilton serves good-value grandeur in a great location. This well-known hotel has been operating in London since 1908 and still retains some of its charming period features, from corridors wide enough to accommodate evening gowns, to its grand Homage Restaurant. If you’re looking for a classic London afternoon tea you don’t need to travel far – it’s served every afternoon, accompanied by a harpist or pianist.
The Waldorf is in the perfect position for sightseeing, set on The Strand, with Covent Garden and Theatreland just up the road. The rest of London’s biggest sights are within a mile radius – considering its location, the hotel is a great price compared to its neighbours.
Despite its central location rooms are exceptionally quiet. They’re decked out in calming powder blue, with high ceilings and old Hollywood photographs lining the walls. Bathrooms are smartly cloaked in grey marble and tiles, and come with bathrobes, slippers, a proper hairdryer and separate bath and shower.

There is a large gym with all the equipment you need, plus there’s a set up for spin classes (extra charge applies). Grand columns surround the 14-metre pool and, tucked away, you’ll find a steam room and sauna. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
Serving breakfast and dinner, the elegant Edwardian-style Homage Restaurant takes inspiration from grand European cafes, offering an English menu with European twists. Located close by, next to the hotel lobby, is Good Godfrey's Bar and Lounge. Decorated with dark oak panelling, the bar takes its name from the hotel's original house band - Howard Godfrey and The Waldorfians. Here you can sip a selection of signature cocktails and classic martinis, and enjoy light bites and canapes, to the tune of a 1920's soundtrack. The Wild Monkey is a pop-up bar from the makers of Monkey 47 gin, offering an array of gin-based cocktails in a chic, tropical-inspired setting.
Don’t miss the popular afternoon tea where you can tuck into fresh sandwiches, warm scones and sweet treats, accompanied by the resident pianist or harpist, with speciality teas or Champagne.
