5/5 Excellent

The rooms were beautiful, big and clean. Loved the complimentary mini bar snacks and water, was a nice perk. The hotel is a 9 minute walk from the London bridge station, was very easy to get to. I stayed in the hotel for a week, mom and daughter. The only thing that could be improved is service at breakfast was very slow. Our order never came all at once. If you are only staying a few nights, and breakfast is included in your rate only then is it worth it, otherwise order from the menu. I picked this hotel because it was Indian-themed. But it would be nice if there was a north Indian option on the breakfast menu that was included instead of an additional cost on top of a pricey breakfast. There wasn't enough choice since we were staying for a week.

The.best London Hôtel we’ve ever stayed in. Absolutely fantastic staff who were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. Excellent rooms, beds and bedding with wonderful showers and complimentary toiletries. Great food and excellent breakfast. Location next to City Hall, The Shard and Tower Bridge was great for exploring this part of the City. Would definitely recommend that everyone stay here, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks to everyone at The LaLit, well done and keep up the great work! We’ll be back for sure...

I love to stay at small boutique hotels as architecture and decor are exceptional. I chose Lalit because the hotel used to be a school and I love the history. The location is great as it is a short walk to public transportation and restaurants. The staff and service were excellent. A true 5+ star hotel.

My favourite hotel in London. Yes you can try the Firmdale Group which is my usual go to but the welcome and relaxed quality is what I love about LaLit. This is our second stay and although not a suite the room was perfectly adequate for our needs on this occasion. Helps to know the Marketing Exec and Chef’s from the Masterclass they’ve run this year but nothing is too much or any trouble. Both came to find me and say hello and it’s this personal touch that stands them out from most hotels in London. I don’t feel I’m in a corporate bubble being greeted by clones. If you you want the human touch come here and enjoy great food, a walk by the Thames and beautiful hotel.
