My kinda hotel

Great hotel!! Location unbeatable (esp. if you like theatre), price fabulous, room service excellent, bed nice and firm. The only possible drawback is that the room was quite small. Really only barely fit the bed and desk. But for this location at this price it was totally worth it!! Would definitely recommend and frequent again!

Fabulous Trip

Great Hotel. I was able to check in early so I could start touring the city. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Only drawback was the street noise. My room faced Strand and Friday and Saturday was very noisy. The restaurants in the hotel are convenient, but the food is just ok. I would definitely stay there again. Perfect location near Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and bus and tube stops.

Spend time looking around for places to eat. Avoid chains and try the small pubs. Most food is ala cart. So it can be costly to eat.

Great Location at unbeatable price

The rooms while traditionally small, were fine; recently refurbished so nice. Two points, though not a problem for us: Shower is low so anyone abobe 6-3 will bang his/her head in the ceiling(!) and the beds are of the hard variety. No AC, but a fan is provided. Location is hard to beat and we got a the rooms at a very nice price.Strongly recommended!

Super location for the price

The location was great, the staff was very helpful and the room was clean. There was no air conditioning but it was cool enough at night in September that the room temperature would get down to 75 degrees Farenheit.

Ideal location for any activity

I no doubt recommend this hotel. Not only incredibly close to the city centre, also high quality in any aspect we mention; except for noise. Next time I am back to London I will try and accomodate at Strand Palace Hotel London.

A Decent, Well-Lacated Hotel

The Strand Palace have been making many improvements over the last few years. It is a nice place to stay. BUT they have nailed the windows shut so that only one will open more about an inch. With no air conditioning, it makes the room quite warm. I fan was provided, but it is not as nice as fresh air. And there is only a heavy comforter on the bed, which is impossable to use with the room so warm.

Great Location

The hotel staff is friendly and very accommodating. Stayed there on two different bookings. The second room was really small and hot, but the staff readily changed the room with no hassle whatsoever. That being said, there is NO air conditioning, [...]. Each room has a fan which worked with the weather conditions I experienced. Location can't be beat. So many things are within walking distance, including museums, Trafalger Sq., London Eye, Tate Modern Somerset House, Theaters, Covent Garden and more. Low frills, but convenient and clean.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy an Oyster card for the Tube. Ask the Tube Assistance people to make sure you can return it at the end of your stay. Costs 5 pounds, which is refunded, then you load it up in 5 pound increments (I did for 3 days with 20 pounds of travel and got back 11 pounds (5 for the card and 6 for unused travel) and you get the cheapest rate for each trip you take.

Really great location

Walking distance to many theaters, Covent Garden, and across Waterloo Bridge to the South Bank area. Long walk or convenient buses and tube stops to other theaters. Room was very nice, and staff very helpful.
