High price for Low quality, but centrally located.

Extremely tight room without view and tub that didn't drain. Breakfast was good, but dinner at Strand Carvery was horrible - buffet food (dry meats and tasteless potatoes. Location is the best thing about this place!

Easy Location

If you want an easy to find hotel, in a location near covent garden, near all the theatres and good walking anywhere, shopping and restaurants and underground, this was it. Its a very simple hotel with a great helpful staff. Clean and simple.

great location - average experience

Paper thin walls. Only three quite small elevators for each large floor. Slow response to plumbing problem and unhelpful and curt telephone staff. Housekeeping staff excellent. Location saves time and transport money for theatre, museums. shopping, and dining.

A Perfect Location, Almost Five Stars

As a single traveler and older person, I would heartily recommend the Strand Palace. It's location near Trafalgar Square, Covent Gardens and local transportation options make it a perfect area for theatre-goers and people who like bus travel. Concierge, Sen, couldn't have been more thorough in changing Euros to Pounds, getting theatre tickets, strategizing about what type of travel pass I should buy, suggesting bus routes and helping me with change. Other staff members were fine, but Sen was outstanding. The free ATMs, bar, lounge area and full-service restaurant added greatly to the convenience of staying in this hotel. The room was a single and, albeit small, was more than adequate for one person. I loved the shutters on the windows. There was no bureau but the closet shelf and my suitcase were enough room. The raised bath tub could be a problem for people with climbing issues and there wasn't much counter space for personal items. Not a problem, but the hair dryer was located in a space in the desk where clothes could have lived. Although free wi-fi was great, I was bummed that TV was almost ₤20! Also, I brought the wrong electric adaptors and had to purchase (at ₤5 each) replacements. The NH Paseo del Prado in Madrid cheerfully lent them to me. Perhaps other people aren't so good about returning them? After I lost my magazine with the map, I was informed there were no others until the first of May. Since it was only 23 or 24 April, it was a disappointment and seemed strange. Most hotels do charge extra for breakfast and it's almost always much more expensive than small places, but I do wish it was included in the price of the room. One lift had intermittent problems during my stay. As there were 2 others, it wasn't terrible. I would have given Strand Palace Hotel 4 and a half stars above if that had been an option.

Single travelers can often get that last theatre ticket or restaurant table. I didn't know my daily schedule well enough to buy tickets in advance but was able to get same day tickets at the box offices of 2 theatres.

Can't beat the location, if you want theater. The hotel was renovated and nice. Toilets take a while for the second flush. One of three elevators broken during my stay. Beds comfy. I would stay there again.
