    It had a bed.

    I wish I could give this 0. I paid quite a lot of money for 2x rooms, room 315 was appalling. The television was broken. The air con was broken in the centre of a heatwave. The Coffee machine was broken so no hot drinks facilities. I spoke to reception who had no interest what so ever and shrugged it on with basically 'there's nothing we can do about that'. Sent an email in the second I arrived home (Monday) and haven't had a single response. I'd expect an apology at very least considering I paid full value for a 1/4 functioning room. Wouldn't stay here again for free.

    The location with direct access to Victoria station and Gatwick Express was extraordinary. Although restoration was ongoing we got the feeling of a genuin English firstclass hotel.

    Very expensive breakfast, and we did not give it a try. Lot of stairs and and only one lift.

    We stayed one night as a stopover for a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. Make sure you book a newly refurbished executive room. We had a Kingsize Executive which was large,well furnished, good bed,large bathroom and separate seating area and two flatscreen TVs. Quiet,comfortable, loads of wardrobe space and very up to date showers and other fittings. Could not fault the room at all. Very comfortable stay. We opted out of the hotel breakfast and turning left out of the entrance found Vafresca two minutes away, great little Italian cafe doing really good breakfast rolls with bacon etc and a good coffee for £3.95 each!

    It is being refurbished so some building works about but no noise or dust. Access to 7th floor rather complicated involving two lifts and a bit of a trek but builders told me a new bigger lift is being put in which should solve this. Make sure if you extend your room departure by an hour ( Cost £10) as we did that you get your key card re programmed or you wont get back in. The Grosvenor is not cheap but by London standards we felt it was good value, excellent room and we would use it again

    The staff was absolutely increditable. The concierge staff was more than accommodating. They helped us with the room, the electrical plug set up, confirming tour and flight, transport to the airport, and guidance around the city. We can't say enough nice things about the staff of this hotel.

    By us standards, the prices in London are high. For the sights we wanted to see, this hotel was a perfect location-Buckingham Palace, etc.

    I stayed on the 4th Floor Wing Annexe. This part of the hotel has been beautifully refurbished. Reached along wide carpeted corridors, the rooms are spacious and well furnished with very good facilities. Staff were relaxed and good humoured, but very courteous and efficient too. The hotle is located right inside Victoria Railway Station , and so could not be more convenient. Very good window glazing, room air-conditioning and very comfortable beds ensures there is no disturbance at night.

    Room service drinks were rather expensive.

    Superb

    The location it was right next to main line, underground & bus station. Lots of attractions in easy walking distance.

    A few things in the room. The hook up shower didn't work (had to shower using a hand held one) & no bath plug. Also the room was a long way from reception & some of the stairs had no lift access.

    Good

    The hall is wonderful but artificial, our room was located in a new part so was new and clean.

    The bar was closed so I asked 2 mineral water bottles from my room but i never received them.

    Hotel was very convenient as travelling by train, very helpful staff and the grandeur of a traditional luxury hotel.

    Standard room did need some refurbishment, especially the bathroom.

    The comfortable bed, quietness of hotel and friendly helpful staff.

    The bathrooms desperately need updating and no complimentary teas/coffees in room despite web site saying there are. This is usually standard in most hotels.
