About Park Plaza London Riverbank

Upmarket hotel on London’s south bank with welcoming vibe

River views
Park Plaza London Riverbank puts you right on the Albert Embankment, on the south bank of the River Thames. It’s a perfect spot for river walks and classic London views. The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and the London Eye are all within a mile.

Getting around
Vauxhall Tube is about a 5-minute walk, and from there it’s a swift ride on the Tube to Green Park and Oxford Circus. For some wartime history, the Churchill War Rooms are just over a mile from the hotel.

A personal touch
This deluxe hotel gets top marks from guests for its comfortable modern rooms and excellent concierge staff. If you’re up for some sushi or seafood, check out trendy Chino Latino restaurant and bar on the ground floor.

Smart rooms
Tastefully decorated, air-conditioned guestrooms have free WiFi and flat-screen TVs with premium channels and pay movies. Executive rooms and suites offer pillow menus, complimentary newspapers, and bathrobes and slippers – and, if you're lucky, a spectacular river view.

    customers are not an inconvenience!
    The hotel is fabulous and in a good accessable area, however I have stayed here 3 times now - and not again! Each time I have stayed I have found the staff treat you as an inconvenience which is unfortunate as it is a lovely hotel. Example - check-in / check-out always takes ages as the staff enjoy a chat or anyhting else rather than dealing with customers. I was checked in and given my electric key and could not access my room, went down and was eventually seen to. Explaining the issue short of rolling her eyes the receptionist could have done little more to let me know she did not believe me. I was then dispatched with a new key and a member of staff who also could not get the new key to work. He let me in with a skeleton key and basically told me to stay until someone came back to me! The whole thing took an age to sort and not one appology!

    Probs with hot water and light controls.
    Reported lack of hot water for shave after first morning. No action taken. Light controls in room difficult to see without glasses.

    Hotel staff were very efficient and helpful, the restaurant/bar serving staff were rather slow, often having to be prompted.
