The tickets are cheaper compared to Cineworld or the much expensive Vue. But you kind of feel its probably cheaper because Odeon doesn't care to even clean the theatre properly!! The premier seats are in the middle rows and in no way better than the unreserved standard seats. The seats were dirty and the toilets were average too. on the... More

Outstanding cinema experience. This is what film and audience is all about. Quality never goes out of style. Besides all this magnificence, the staff helped us deposit our bags during the show and more.

We went to see a film here not long ago and although the cinema was quite tatty the members of staff were quite helpful and friendly. The sound and picture quality was quite good and we enjoyed the film.

Saw Interstellar at the Odeon West End (not to be confused with the Odeon Leicester Square) its clearly not being looked after any more as its earmarked for demolition as the toilets were disgusting, carpet worn and dirty and rubbish strewn everywhere. Auditorium just about acceptable, there were lots of anomalies on the film due to poor projection maintenance reducing... More

Went there the other day. All of the seats in screen 2 where on the same level so if you have a tall person sitting in front of you, you will have to move. As for the seats, at first I thought mine could have been broken since it slanted downwards making me slip off. However, after seeing other patrons... More

We went to see Noah at one of the most photographed cinema venues in the world and I was dissapointed. It was a 20:30 show, but we had 25 minutes of trailers.

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
