Fine dining, modern styling, and in the heart of theaterland

The Strand Palace Hotel London is ideally located within walking distance of many of London's major tourist attractions. Guests visiting the city on business can make use of the hotel's nine conference rooms. There are excellent transport links right outside the door, including tube stations and bus stops that further add to the hotel's convenient location. The hotel's interesting contrast of a very modern interior with a typically old-English exterior makes for a comfortable stay and the on-site bar and restaurant serves various European dishes and a traditional British carvery. Wi-Fi is free of charge and available throughout the entire hotel.

Reasons to stay
  • Located in Covent Garden, just a few minutes' walk from London's most prestigious theaters
  • A selection of nine different meeting venues to choose from, making it ideal for business travelers
  • Contemporary and modern interior within a traditional British building

"Convenient location, great deal"

Great location near Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, and Charing Cross and Embankment tube stations making it very convenient for central London activities. Also near theater district so plenty of restaurants, pubs, and people around for evening activities. Covent Garden is VERY busy at night(we were there Thurs.-Sun.), so finding a place to sit at a restaurant can be nearly impossible until late. Lots of twenty and thirtysomethings out on the town in Covent Garden. We had no problem sleeping however as our room was off the street and had wood shutters to close so any noise and light was blocked for as long as you needed. The room was small, but more than adequate with wall-mounted flat screen TV, desk, armoire with safe, and ample shower/bathroom facilities. The staff was friendly, though not a huge help with sightseeing questions.They were generally not English and seemed fairly new to Britain. The concierge was very helpful and even could do theater tickets and exchange money. This hotel is right on the Strand which is a busy main street and is not in the middle of all the activities. We found it an excellent location to begin our stay in Great Britain.

Wonderful price for the location

The room was clean and updated, the carpet in the hall had not been updated yet and was stained and taped in places. The 9th floor can get warm and since I had a "inside" room there was no breeze to cool the room. That being said, the hotel is a great location for sight seeing and getting to train stations, not to mention several Starbucks near by for morning coffee. The staff was very nice and helpful. I have stayed there four times and will stay again.

Buy a travel card before you leave the states. It is sent to you and is activated for certain dates. As soon as I land in Heathrow, I can go down to the tube and take it to Covent Garden which is a VERY close walking distance to the Strand Palace. It is quick, easy and cheaper than a taxi :)

Great London Location

Very comfortable room larger than we expected. Club rooms are worth the slight additonal cost. Nearness to West End theater is a definite plus. Only a 5 minute cab ride from Waterloo station.

On the pulse of London

The building has several inner courtyards, so although the location was very busy, my room was very quiet, but also very small. Just enough room for the very comfy, but single bed and an open suitcase. The interior has been upgraded and in very good condition but in a funky old style. Nice large bathtub for soaking in after a long day of walking, good venting for air circulation with room windows that only opened 4". Saw no evidence of AC in room, so summers might not be very comfy. I spent a lot of my time rehearsing for a musical program at the Southbank Centre, a 5 min walk across the river, via the Waterloo Bridge. A very happening place with free wi-fi throughout. It's very convenient to the theatre district as well as the Tube for airport access and other areas of the city. Evensong at St.Paul's and Westminster Abbey are free, and give you a chance to sit and look around at the great interiors.
