Amber Residence Hotel
Ranked #210 of 923 Speciality Lodging in London
Reviewed 17 August 2017

This family hotel is in a great location, near to Marble Arch and Oxford Street for all the shopping that you want. Also near to Baker Street Station, Regents Park and Hyde Park - all within walking distance.

A few negatives :-
1. The entrance to the hotel is not on Gloucester Place but on a side street (Blandford). We arrived near to midnight in pouring rain and stood at 44 Gloucester Place and had to "bang" on the door for close to 15 minutes. Getting wet at midnight is no fun - better signs and instructions required.
2. The bathroom and kitchen have been updated but the stained carpets needs to be changed. In one of the rooms (208), the carpet was not even vacuumed and we had to get cleaners to do the job.
3. The chairs in the room 208 were stained and did not present a good outlook.
4. The sofa in 208 was not presentable and looked like they were purchased from a second hand store. Better not to have a sofa rather than a old dowdy looking one.
5. The windows were not clean and contained dirt and dust, especially on the outside.
6. Rooms are non smoking but we can smell the tobacco smoke.

Apart from the above, the gentlemen (Hani, Gaby, Ali) that we met who were managing the place were very friendly and helpful. They did all that we asked.

Room Tip: Close a room on the upper floor and at the back of the building - it's a lot quieter.

I hate the wifi here since I have to stay for more than 1 month. The Internet is painfully slow and unstable. I fail to connect to the wifi all the time. And you can't login the wifi for both your phone and laptop because they only give me one code, which is £5.

My default place to stay in London on my visit. Centrally located and within walking distance to Baker Street Tube, Marble Arch, Hyde Park and Oxford Street.
Simple kitchenette is perfect for people whom enjoy whipping up a simple meal after a long day out and about in London.
Stayed in the Family room which has a Queen Bed and 2 Single beds overlooking Gloucester Place.
Had issue with the TV Set top box and had to called for help on Saturday evening and within minutes problem was resolved.

We had been here for 10 days. Very helpful teem, the beds were comfort and room was big. Small but satisfied kitchen in separate room. Good location, 8 minutes walk with kids to several Underground locations (Marvel Arch,Baker Street). The furniture little bit old, but everything is clean. Good Solution for families that want to eat their on breakfast that their kids like

Excellent location equidistant to Oxford street and Baker Street station. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help in finding answers to all our questions.
My wife and I spent 4 nights in the spotlessly clean, reasonably sized room with a small kitchen and its all necessary amenities. The only fault we found was in the shortage of available TV stations.

Room Tip: Ours was on the lower floor and well located.
