Right on Oxford Street, between jumbo department stores and flagship shops, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Berkshire is a contemporary crash pad with a killer central London location. The entrance is down a side street, and there’s a small reception area with mirrored columns, giant vases and dark wood paneling. The main staircase is decorated with colorful prints of Chinese emperors and a walnut grandfather clock. Each floor is dotted with paintings and sculptures from the owner’s private collection.
Bed & Bath
Bringing a whole new meaning to the term window shopping, around a third of the 149 guestrooms overlook the stores lining Oxford Street. Rooms on the upper floors afford classic skyline views. Amenities include eco-friendly mattresses in all rooms, handmade wool carpets, Samsung Smart TVs and marble bathrooms. The suites have separate lounge areas with plush velvet sofas, caramel crocodile print padded headboards and freestanding bathtubs.
Tucked away just off Oxford Street, Scoff & Banter Tea Rooms serve a la carte afternoon tea daily between 1pm and 7pm.
There’s also the The Drawing Room which serves the quintessentially British Scoff & Banter menu all day. Head downstairs to grab a coffee and people-watch behind the huge glass windows. Upstairs (where breakfast is served), the dining room features wood-paneled walls inlaid with mirrors, parquet floors and leather furniture. Plenty of light streams through the Georgian sash windows.
In the Area
The Oxford Street address is a great shop-and-flop location. Hop between department stores, including fashion-forward Selfridges and great British standard John Lewis. For indie shopping head to leafy Marylebone, which also offers tons of food options, from the Michelin-starred Indian restaurant Trishna to Andre Balazs’s latest hot spot, Chiltern Firehouse. Hyde Park is a 15-minute walk away for a peaceful stroll through the 350-acre grounds. Active types can take a boat out on the lake or try horseback riding along designated routes.
How to Get There
A perfect location at Oxford Str near Regent St and Bond St Underground, but ... the mattresses are Radisson unworthy and the room not in line with what the hotel photos show you. Sleeping is terrible with springs poking in your body. As a Radisson Rewards member this was most unexpected. It's time Radisson invest in good bedding and replace the old, dusty carpet for room 317.
Excelent location at Oxford Street close to Debenhams store and Bond Street underground, fantastic buffet breakfast with good products as smoked salmon, fresh juices and eggs benedit. Medium size hotel. Friendly staff and confortable room, we were in a business room.
The Staff in this hotel are really welcoming. I have stay a number of times and the experience just gets better. Would highly recommend stay here. Access to local amenities are good and local restaurants are excellent.
The Hotel is 2 minutes from Bond Street tube station and very close to the main Oxford Street sopping experience.
The entrance to the hotel is off Oxford Street which is great because you walked from the buzz to peaceful surroundings!
Lovely wood panelled interior but with modernised rooms.
I will certainly stay again!
The breakfast was enjoyable although I missed out on coffee!
I enjoyed the ambience of the bar in the evening when having a very enjoyable glass of wine.
Location is super. Near Bond station and on top of Oxford st.
Brackfast is ok. Unfortonatly no vegtables are availble.
The room was clean quite and big. There was a coffee machine and that was very nice. Nice bed setting.
Bathroom was also comfortable.
All in all, very good for bussines trip.
