There were a few signs of what Tophams used to be in its shabby style and décor but the reality was a tired boutique hotel that needs some money spent on it. The staff were pleasant enough but not trained, the bar contained an empty bottle of gin and all we got was a shrug - the wine we had... More

Avoid staying here. Overpriced and awful rooms. Cracked paint and stained carpets. This is a place that I will never come back to. Easily one of the worst hotel stays I've had. Absolutely not worth it. If you end up having to stay here try to at least negotiate your price.

I stayed whilst on a business trip and booked it through Secret Hotels. How it got on there I don't know - can only be because of its location. Booking in on arrival was OK but after that nothing else was.

Staff where constantly quarrelling in front of guests. Rooms had damages that where not looked at. Breakfast was not fresh and was cold at times. The staff in the restaurant at breakfast where appalling. Disappointing stay, not what I expected. Defiantly will not be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the few remaining independent, boutique hotels, modern burlesque in style across five elegant stucco Victorian buildings. The 50 bedroom luxury hotel situated in the heart of Belgravia, one of the most exclusive and historic residential areas in London, is just minutes away from Victoria Station. Close to Buckingham Palace among many other top attractions, and with many restaurants and great shopping areas nearby, Tophams is London's best kept secret. Our breakfast room offers a selection of ham, cheese, breads and croissant, yoghurts, fresh fruit and a selection of fruit juices in a relaxing setting, which benefits from air conditioning and natural daylight; a perfect way to start your day in the City. Renowned for an excellent setting for a traditional English afternoon tea, we have a warm and welcoming, highly personalised style of service, in one of the very finest locations in London. We enjoy a truly international business and leisure clientele. Indeed, with a number of public transport services available close by, from double decker buses to Victoria tube/subway, travel arrangements literally open up the City for trips to the City centre, Theatreland and top tourist attractions. Open top bus tours can be arranged to thirty two tourist attractions and we highly recommend touring by cruising the River Thames along to The Tower of London and Greenwich. International visitors will be pleased to note Victoria station for connections to London Gatwick is just a few minutes' walk away and we are well positioned for car transfers to London Heathrow International airport. Our team can also readily assist with your transport arrangements to London City, London Luton and London Stansted airports, as well as anything else to ensure you the most pleasant stay. ... more   less
