About Plaza on the River

5-star suites with kitchens, on the Thames

Overlooking the Thames
The 5-star Plaza on the River puts you on beside the River Thames, across the water from the Tate Britain art gallery. You'll also be a 15-minute walk from Westminster icons, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

See the Eye
A 15-minute walk along the river brings you to the London Eye, and the Imperial War Museum is under 1 mile away. Vauxhall Tube Station is an 8-minute walk from your front door.

Tea or sashimi
The swanky Chino Latino Brasserie features an Asian-inspired menu and decor, and offers sushi-making classes. In addition to an onsite fitness center, this hotel offers in-room spa treatments, including facials and massages.

Spread out
Spacious suites offer separate living areas and king beds. Some apartments feature fully fitted kitchenettes (available on request). You can relax on your leather sofa and watch cable channels on your interactive flat-screen TV. You'll also have free WiFi and an espresso machine.

Need to watch the details
This hotel needs to pay attention to details - a long black hair in my bath doesn't inspire confidence - nor do loose bits of flooring, air conditioning that is mediocre at best (and didn't work at all in the bedroom) and an unpleasant musty smell in the room - the drain from the sink in the mini kitchen I think. It's a nice hotel but as a 5 star property, it really needs to ensure that all of these things are taken care of. Did I complain at the hotel I hear you ask? No - I was there for one night and by the time I realised most of this stuff, it was already midnight - not going to move rooms at that time of night. I've stayed here before and the room I had that time was better so it is just maintenance that is needed. Good breakfast but attention to detail again - when I place an order with a member of the waiting team, I expect it to be fulfilled - it wasn't and this is the second time I've stayed and this has happened. Front desk staff good and friendly
