Arrow Hilton London Bankside {GBR}

The new Hilton London Bankside is currently planned to open in summer 2015.

It has the same owners as the recently re-flagged Conrad (Synergy Hotels or Surpreme Hotels LLP - different media outlets suggest different names, but same chairman is quoted).

A number of pictures is online - https://www.pinterest.com/dextermore...ndon-bankside/

Not convinved about the outside, but it will feature a swimming pool, which in central London is not all that common. There will also be an Executive Lounge.

292 rooms, of which 21 are suites.

For an exact location check out the map here:

Nice Looking

Walk past it every day. Sits behind a Holiday Inn Express taking up whole block. Dont expect any views from rooms it is hidden in behind the railway line and other buildings.
Very big conference room which will be popular knowing the demand in the area, would expect it to be business with conference and business, big offices right opposite with RBS etc. Also leisure given its location.

Looks like this property is starting to accept reservations for an opening at the end of October. I booked a stay for January. Based on the pictures, I love the look of the inside. We'll see if this will become one of my regular hotels for my frequent London trips.

I stayed at that Holiday Inn Express last summer. Now I know what the noise was all about. Bankside is a fabulous location for a tourist.

Taking reservations now. Booked a 3 night stay in November and similar in December for a decent "Welcome to Bankside" price of 180 per night. Easy cancel option included. Hope that this new venue will offer some competition to Hilton Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf for them to re-assess their pricing policies.

PS. Could not resist the offer, reservations made for the same price also in January and February 2016...

what other benefits does the welcome to bankside rate offer over the easy cancellation rate?

I will be happy with standard Diamond benefits. I suppose they have an exec. lounge. Also cheaper but nonrefundable/cancellable pricing options available...

It's cheaper than the standard cancellable rate. That's the main thing, as far as I could see when I booked (last month, at the summer sale rate, of course...)

I'll be anxious to read reviews from those booked at the hotel this fall. My reservation is not until January but very much looking forward to staying at this property.

I've just booked a room for end of this month in the flash sale for 171 - location is great for my office and have fancied this for a while - will report back!
