Lovely hotel - Very central

We stayed for a long weekend after our wedding. On check in we were upgraded to a bigger room which was lovely. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very helpful and I really cant find any fault. The location was perfect for us - 2 mins from Covent Garden, lots to see and do within walking distance. Couldnt fault it.

Location, location, location

If you want a perfectly decent hotel in a great location, this is it. The rooms are small (in the US think Holiday Inn or Motel 6). Perfectly acceptable and much more reasonable than other hotels in London. The best thing about this hotel is the location - in the heart of the theater district and central to everything. You can walk or take a short tube ride to most of the top sites. Staff is nice and very helpful. Would recommend if you aren't planning on staying in your hotel room all day.

THE BEST LOCATION!!!

I have stayed here many times and have always been pleased. This time London was experiencing record heat for October. I expected a hotel in this price range to be air conditioned - WRONG. The windows did open and they provided a fan but still it was too warm. It is a fabulous location for sight-seeing, the theatre district and all the entertainment and dining choices around Covent Garden.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy an oyster card and load it up "pay as you go". Maybe start with 10 pounds. You can use it anytime on a bus, train or underground. Just tap and go. Saves money and time. You can add more money to it at any time. The Brits call this "topping up". BTW, it is not valid on the Heathrow or Gatwick trains. Also if you need or want to be reachable by phone, pick up a cheap pay as you go phone at the train station or a Tesco grocery store. I paid something like 5-10 pounds for mine 2 years ago and still use it anytime I am in Europe. Be prepared to pay for internet use at every hotel and it isn't cheap!

small but comfortable room

Great location. close to tube stations. easy access to everything. didn't mind the small room because we were only there to sleep and the shower facility was very relaxing. could have used something other than a fan i.e. air conditioner as it was hot and humid. I would definitely stay here again.

Get an "oyster pass" It is good for the tube as well as the buses and DLR train. Then all you have to do is swipe the card. You can refill as necessary and cash in for refund when you are ready to leave London.

Great Stay, Better Location

Right by Covent Garden, close to the Tube and several top-flight sites, the Strand Palace is a great base for a London adventure! We loved the fact that so much was within a short walk. The room was tight as everything in Europe is, but it was clean and quiet. The staff were excellent as well. Can't think of anything wrong with this hotel. There are cheaper alternatives but few as centrally located.

Sightseeing Beautiful London

I enjoyed the cleanliness and comfort of the room. I did find the it noisy in the early morning from outside. I am from the USA and missed not getting wash clothes. The breakfast buffet was great! We had an enjoyable stay.

Ordinary hotel, excellent location

There was a slight mix up with our booking - online we booked for two people but the hotel only had us down for one - but they fixed it quickly. The bathroom was not super clean and the overhead light was very flickery, so it wasn't the most comfortable room ever, but the bed was nice and the location was great, close to several tube stations and tourist attractions.
