My husband and I stayed here for 4 days last week. Stayed here previously and loved it, every single time!! Room service was really good, decor and ambience are lovely but most importantly, the location is spot on! The vibe in Melrose Arch is always fun! Only downside was the house keeping. Room wasn't cleaned properly everyday and the duvet was dirty (which we had notified house keeping about). I had mentioned this to the lady on check-out and she didn't take my criticism well. Her demeanor changed completely towards us and that was just a dampen on the whole stay. Overall, lovely stay and highly recommended. Read less

The hotel is wonderful, very aesthetic with beautiful art. Service is great and rooms are comfortable. sheets are crispy clean and the staff is very helpful. The area is great with wonderful restaurants and a clean space to walk around and feel that you are "on holiday" although it was a business trip.

We stayed for a few days at the beautiful African Pride Melrose Arch. The property is perfect, the rooms are very nice, the food is great and you can find many restaurants just outside the hotel but more important than all of that - the people that run this hotel truly care about the guest!!! We had an incident that the hotel staff "lost" our car... yes... they could not find where they parked the car. Very funny but I had to get into a very important meeting. Management stepped in and got me to my appointment in the hotel car, they found our car and refunded us the full price of 2 rooms and gave us points. They handled that situation very well and I can not recommend enough this hotel mainly since the people that runing the hotel truely care about YOU. Read less
