Concierge Lounges in Europe

Hi,

I have found that MOST concierge lounges in Europe are open on weekends and for breakfasts (unless there is an equivalent) 24/7.  This is true at the Athens Ledra, Renaissance Chancery Court, Ghent Marriott and if I remember correctly the London County Hall.  Those are the ones I have stayed at most recently.

Usually in Europe you still have access round the clock to the concierge lounge with your card key even if nothing is there except small refreshments and a computer and TV/newspapers.  I've found that in most cases where they do close you are offered some equivalent in terms of breakfast as well as vouchers for complementary drinks and hors d'oeuvres, etc.

    Prof.,

     

    Nice report!  This is really good to know.  County Hall had week-end service last time I was there and other properties had comp. breakfasts when concierge was closed.

     

    Please keep us informed.

     

    You London Ren. sounds very interesting and i am not sure if it will suit my West end needs or I am better staying at County Hall.  Any thoughts?

    Hi Jerry,

    I think it would work easily for you because the Holborn stop (a block at most from hotel, significantly easier than the County Hall and Westminster simply because you  have to fight the crowds to get across the bridge) is on both the Central and Piccadilly lines.

    I would still say my preference is the County Hall but there was a huge difference in price when I booked and the Renaissance Chancery was outstanding.

    Cheerio, ProfChiara

    Professor,

     

    Thanks so much!

     

    I am going to some plays in the West End and seeing the Moody Blues at the O2 Arena and just want to make it easy on myself.

     

    The Ren. sounds great and I really appreciate your help, (As Usual)!

     

    Cheerio to you!

    Where did you see the ""Free drinks", I have not been there.

     

    Have been lucky enough to have a bottle of wine for the room after I checked in and it was great.

     

    Happy travels!

    Also open weekend is Pais Rive Gauche which is a great lounge.

    Yes, in my opinion, the concierge lounges in Europe and Africa are much better than in America.  I am not sure why, but it is always an eye opener when we are in the States.
