H10 London Waterloo
What We Love
- The central location, just minutes from London's South Bank and the famous Borough Market
- Taking in the views from the eighth-floor Waterloo Sky Bar
- Summer in London - deckchairs in Hyde Park, swimming in lidos and daytime Pimm's in the capital's best beer gardens
What To Know
- Guest rooms are compact, starting at 200 square feet, but the floor-to-ceiling windows make the space seem larger
- There's an on-site beauty center with a gym, sauna, hydromassage shower and treatment rooms
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
Modern with floor-to-ceiling windows, a covetable location on Waterloo Road and an eighth-floor bar overlooking the capital, H10 London Waterloo has just the right character for a stylish London break. While City View rooms are compact, the large picture windows create an enhanced sense of space. Downstairs, the sophisticated Three O Two Restaurant presents an elaborate menu of
specialized Mediterranean and international dishes, while the lively, eight-floor Waterloo Sky Bar serves cocktails and a wide range of other refreshments. Alternatively, chill out with a coffee in the lobby’s Circus Bar where you’ll find comfy leather chairs and a relaxed atmosphere. Located a stroll from the atmospheric South Bank and the London Eye, you can take in many of the city’s major attractions on foot, or hop on the tube at one of several nearby underground stations. With a lively bar and inventive restaurant, this thoroughly 21st-century base is the ideal starting (and finishing) point for evenings spent drinking cocktails by the Thames.
In the Area
The hotel’s central location on Waterloo Road, just south of the Thames, places you perfectly for exploring the cultural delights of the South Bank, the fabulous shopping of Covent Garden and Oxford Street, and of course the magical West End theater land. You can walk to Leicester Square in roughly 30 minutes, or hop on the tube at Lambeth North, Waterloo or Southwark—all three stations are close by.
How to Get There
This was our second time at the H10 London Waterloo and it was great!
Lovely clean room, big bed and an upgrade to a city view room which was really appreciated thanks!
The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a huge array of food at breakfast- everything you could think of and more.
Good location, close to the South Bank and Borough Market and the nearby Santander bikes made getting around easy.
We would defend return
Despite my room having been prepaid on a company credit card, including meal allowance, I was asked to provide my credit card on check-in. Fair enough, this is common in almost all hotels. However, I was then asked to provide government issue photo ID - passport or driving licence. I could understand if I was travelling from another country, but I live in the UK. I was told by the reception manager that it was simply "our policy". I asked to see this policy, but she couldn't produce it. I asked her to let me know when she'd found it. Needless to say, I didn't ever get to see it.
So, I was told my room was ready, and given my key cards. I'd had a long day travelling and so, after unpacking, decided to have a hot shower. As I was about to get undressed, there was a knock on the door. I thought it was perhaps the manager, with the aforementioned policy. It wasn't. It was maintenance. Apparently my room had been reported as having a faulty basin in the bathroom. The maintenance man spent 10 minutes fiddling with the plumbing, then announced he was taking a part away, and would be back later! He didn't think he'd be long, but I couldn't have a shower in case he showed up. I called the from desk and spoke to the reception manager again. She apologized, and couldn't understand how I'd been checked into a room that needed maintenance. She said she'd look into it, and get back to me. Of course, she never did.
Fifteen minutes later, the maintenance man returned and finished his repair. And then another knock on the door, with two bottles of water. And another - two chocolates. Finally, I got my shower.
On check out, no-one asked me how I found my stay. I can't actually recall the last time I left a major hotel without someone enquiring as to my stay.
I've stayed at this H10 a few times before, but I doubt I'll be back.
From the first moment we stepped into the hotel we felt very welcomed. The two ladies on reception when we checked in were very helpful. When we were waiting to check in they offered us a drink and apologized for the delay which was no more than a couple of minutes.
We had a meal in the restaurant and the food was presented beautifully and tasted amazing so I would definitely recommend having a meal there. The staff again couldn't do enough for you.
Both breakfast times the food was hot, loads of it and drinks were a plenty. And it was nice to stay in a hotel were they served thick tasty bacon and sausages.
Cleanliness of the room was spotless and the cleaners done a great job.
Location was ideal for what we had planned to do but the bonus was finding that the Imperial War Museum was only a five minute walk away. A visit to there is an absolute must.
Overall a perfect weekend stay and will definitely go back.
