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
First of all, hotel location is very good, it is near underground and oxford street. Room service is good, cleaning laydies clean room and change our towels everyday. But, accommodation and customer service is not good.
we stayed there 4 night and 5 day with one baby and one children 4 years. we stayed at family room. The room had a very small toilet and no lamp for bed side. when children slept we only use toilet lamp and our phone light or slept. we said please put a lamp our room. they said ok but we arrived at the room the lamp was not working and called the reception they said it is not possible to changed it because this time (08:00 p.m.)maintenance is not possible. Even they didnt changed sth different. Another day we said again and they said ok but nothing was happend. Also first two day their lift button was not working. In the bath, there wasnt a handheld showerhead. So, it was difficult to clean my baby.
Finally, i think it can be a good for just single or couple without children.
Stayed at this hotel, very convenient location for the London Palladium where the concert was, also great location if you are sight seeing. Very comfortable hotel, good service and not bad value for a central London hotel that offers something above budget hotel service
This was our first time staying at a Radisson Blu Hotel but will not be the last. Great staff, great service and fab location. We were celebrating our anniversary and everything was done to make it a perfect trip - thank you.
Very good experience, good situation, personal very nice and attentive to your demands. Room and bathroom are well equipped. Possibility to in/out on line. Small negative point the elevators are a bit small…
The hotel is very goog ocated at Oxford Streeet near the Bond metro station. But it is a bit far and arduous , mainly in the evening to go to diner. It's only one stop to Oxford Circus, but it is to far to go by foot. You have to take the metro. Good breakfast.
