Good place to stay in London

The location near Covent Garden is great and the service was good. Otherwise very average experience, nothing special but nothing missing either.

Wonderful as always

Best location for visiting west end theatres, historical attractions, cultural interests. Lots of grocery outlets nearby, and of course a great selection of eateries. Hotel is pricey, and I cannot understand why I can always book cheaper through a wholesaler than directly through the hotel.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

If over 60, or student always check directly with theatre for 'concessions' rates, cheaper than "TKTS" half price outlet.

Rooms are comfortable and friendly staff. The localization is perfect, all important places are just a short distance some of them just walking distance. London transportation is very expensive; the location of the hotel helps you to save a lot of money.

Great location

For the price, you can't beat the location. Its so close to everything - you may save from not having to take any public transport. Its not a place to stay in and relax - rooms are small and dark (no views). And it is really warm - I had to keep the windows open - in the middle of November. Super fast free internet - so it a good place for business trips.

No reason to eat at any chains - around the many side streets and Convent Garden, lots of local eating. Weekends - walk across the bridge over to South Bank Market. Local food stalls - yum! Also, there is a 24 hours market a few minutes walks.

Conveniently Small

Spent 6 days, Sept 2014 for business trip. Very good central location to Trafalgar Square, Theatre District. Close to shopping, plenty of restaurants. Staff very helpful with directions, recommendations. Hotel room was small, but adequate for a single traveler. Room had been updated with new bath features, carpeting, paint. Only real complaint was that it had no air conditioning. Weather was warm and humid and only air movement was a small fan provided. Ok for me, glad the wife wasn't there !

Thursday nights, just 2 blocks behind hotel, there is a wonderful market square. Really good Jamie Oliver restaurant inside the 'market building'. On Thursday's in the plaza area there are food vendors serving great street food, smoked salmon, empanadas, etc. Really good, inexpensive.
