I love Radisson Edwardian Hotels – I’ve stayed in a few now and have never failed to be impressed by the service, the food and most importantly, the room.
The Radisson Edwardian New Province Wharf hotel was no different – despite showing up bleary-eyed at past midnight after a flight back from Italy, I was met with friendly and courteous service, and was on my way to my room within five minutes. And what a room:
Even the bathroom was beautiful (I didn’t think I’d ever say that!):
The Radisson Edwardian New Providence Wharf is a little too far off the beaten track to be a Central London hotel, and is located about a five-minute walk from the East India DLR station. With that said, its one of the only London hotels I’ve stayed in with a fantastic view of all the brightly lit tower buildings in the area (Citi, Barclays etc). It certainly makes a change from the dreary surroundings of hotels like the Marble Arch Thistle.
Unfortunately I didn’t have as long as I’d have liked to check out our room – we arrived late and left fairly early the next morning. I can tell you though that the shower is amazing – a common theme with all the Radisson hotels I’ve stayed in. The bed is huge and exceptionally comfortable, and all the usual facilities are there (although sadly not the Nespresso Machines that I’ve seen in other Radisson hotels).
Breakfast at the Radisson Edwardian is expensive, but in return there is a huge selection and a free newspaper (I’m sure this is commonplace at business hotels, but it’s fairly new to me).
My stay at the Radisson Edwardian New Providence Wharf Hotel was shorter than I’d have liked, but I enjoyed it and would definitely consider going back next time I’m in London. It is a little difficult to get to, but that is more than made up for by the price (around half what other business hotels in London charge).
Useful information: Check in is from 14:00 onwards, and the reception is open 24/7 (luckily for me!). A credit card preauthorisation is required to cover against damage to the room. See more about this hotel here.
