Stayed there for a date night over the weekend with my wife... point of note we are not dead (or that old) but not kids... we are used to 5star hotels and more normally stay in Mayfair et al but fancied a change. Ive used Melia all over Europe and the quality is always good - the staff - usually mostly spanish are always attentive and helpful - although used to Melia never stayed in an ME before. OK so to the review.... Location... absolutely perfect for theatre and covant garden etc. 50m from Mama Mia if that helps and maybe 300m from Covant Garden.... so if you have that in mind for your evening youve got three choices for walk back (Aldwych, Wardorf and ME). Each is slightly different and ME is clearly aimed toward the yonger or more "chic" "trendy" (or even slightly pretentious) crowd. Ground floor is a lobby bar - its good and relaxed.. not huge but enough for hotel guests and few spare ... it gives the idea of what to expect upstairs in the hotel with pop art on the walls and lots of funky stainless steel dressing the area with maybe half dozen grouped seating areas and big "sit up" style bar to watch cocktails being made if thats your thing. Not cheap - its a cocktail bar - not a pub and frequented mostly by people on way to or coming from Radio (see separate review). Check in on first floor.... as all the corridors in the hotel... carry a pocket torch if you like it will help (sarcasm but not far off). Large open expanse with small desks and some seating which we needed... thanks to timing.. Dont expect early check in .. they seem to run to the MINUTE .. and dont seem to understand the concept that in most five star hotels published times are for advisement not deadlines as to be frank at these prices a customer has the right to expect above and beyond. However customers can be compensated by the free cava and juices which are classy displayed in reception area. We stayed in Chic Suite which is a funky and very trendy two room suite. Living room dominated by massive tv and actually feels very upmarket trendy place (just like the hotel) Bedroom large and comfy again massive tv Bathroom large with crazy shaped bath which looks better than it is --- try siting or lying in a curved bath .. its great fun but not if you actually want a relaxing soak! hehe. Massive two person shower .. great! Special note of bathroom toiletries - beautiful and best I think Ive seen .. not your usual stuff - much much better - I know Im being picky but this sort of thing separates 5star from 5star plus.... Windows .. issue that when you close the funky blinds it only makes them glazed (think a bathroom) so as its london which never gets dark in the electric lights .. Id suggest its actually darker at 2pm on a summers day in the corridor than your bed in the middle of the night. Didnt take room service or eat in hotel so cant comment but prices were monstrous even by west end hotel standards and although its hilarious the idea that there is a PETS menu including fillet steak and chicken with rice is both crazy and worrying! and that you can find Agent Provocateur THONG in the mini bar (fresh to buy not just dumped there). Special note and commendation - Maria Fernandez in the Arua Team - greeted us and showed us to the room careful explaining the various toys in the room (mood lighting, bluetooth bits and ensured we were happy and content) - instantly arranged for kettle and more coffee pods - also Id communicated with her before and found her - as I usually do with melia (thats why I use them) exceptionally helpful and genuinely friendly. Many Thanks Maria - much appreciated. Helpful and very charming. Marco on front desk - once he figured out I was actually irritated by not being able to check in early and having to wait until the stroke of three o'clock before room was released tried very hard to redeem himself. (yes I know thats the published time but if YOU ask ME a week in advance what time we are arriving and we arrive at that stated time (1pm) its perhaps not too much to expect that housekeeping that day do the expensive suites first? Im being picky..but its not a cheap hotel by a long stretch so I think Im being fair....if you want great, really great location and funky trendy hotel which primarily seems to be focused on sub 50yr clients with "the right dress, appearance and attitude with a generous wallet or allowance" .. (oh and by the way dont expect to be able to hold a conversation in a public area including the lifts because the dance music being played everywhere is actually overpoweringly loud... especially the lifts... turn it down please!) then this is without doubt a great hotel! Summary I liked it especially for location... more than wife did... If you want a Melia thats a bit more relaxed and perhaps you dont like dance music then use The Level up by Euston station (see another review I did last year) ... some cute touches .. comfy.. nice cocktails .. not quiet and possibly fits right in with the London Fashion Week thats happening right now.

I am a frequent hotel guest at ME London but this is my first Tripadvisor review of the property. This is probably one of my favourite Hotels in London. The service delivered at Me London is exactly what you will expect from a 5* luxury hotel in the city. I prefer the higher floor rooms on the 9th floor, as they come with Balcony (8th and 9th floor) as you have a good view of the city of London from rooms on this level. Guests have priority access to Radio Rooftop Bar and STK restaurant which is a plus. The room Decor is very modern, the bed is very comfortable, the mini bar is fully stocked with beverages from soft drinks and juice to spirits and champagne. Some of the rooms come with a bath or a shower or a combination of both if you are lucky. I will recommend a stay at the ME London hotel for Solo travellers, couples and family travel as they have interconnecting rooms. Collapse

Stayed only for one night as needed to meet my partner before going onto Prague and Paris. We chose to stay at ME due to the ratings, review and location was prefect to see show. We went to see Mama mia which was just across the road from the hotel. The staff was accommodating, i landed very early that morning from Hong Kong, went for breakfast and tried my luck for an early check-in. I met Marco at the reception, he managed to get me checked-in than normal time. I was welcomed with a nice glass of prosecco... The room given was very clean, all amenities was there. It was nice size, great lighting, comfy bed with really nice bedding which was smooth and high cotton count. I actually travel a lot and must say it was one of the best hotels i have stayed for this price. It was an anniversary trip and the hotel knew and surprised us with a bottle of champagne and strawberries. Such thoughtful touch to make one feel special... We are planning our next visit in London in October again and definitely stay at ME London. Collapse

My husband surprised with a trip for valentines. This hotels Art Deco is amazing and the hotel is in the perfect location for the theatre or shopping. Rooms are a good size and clean. Staff are really friendly. We decided to try the radio bar on top floor, when we approached the lift we got asked a lot of questions by a member of staff and I do believe we may have found it hard to get in had we not been staying at the hotel. When we got up there the view is amazing but staff can be rude, we asked for a table and got told “your have to pay to sit” again when she found out we were staying at the hotel we didn’t have to pay for a table. Drinks are very expensive so please be aware.. ( £24.00 for 2 drinks) The dj was very good In My eyes. I did enjoy my night but I did feel the staff are only really interested in the young rich and famous. Breakfast in the morning was nice but nothing amazing for the price tag they put on it. This hotel in my eyes is for couples only, it doesn’t have a family feel to it. Great hotel, great location but be aware you won’t come home with any change. Collapse

I have been to Me London on quite a few occasions, always to meet clients and partners. The reason why I have chosen this place is because the people who work there have an understanding for my need to not be disturbed every second. The eggs royal are excellent as well as the pancakes and the staff is simply amazing. I think her name is Karen is always very careful and polite. Very professional. I highly recommend this restaurant if in need of a place to organise business meetings over a cup of coffee. Collapse
