Perfect location in the theater district but for food go somewhere else.

Excellent location, next to Savoy, Elevators (lifts) need replacement., as well as most of furnishings. But the price is good and for drinks one can go to American Bar in the Savoy or for a good dinner to close by Rules on Maiden St., the oldest restaurant in London.

Strand Palace Hotel

The room was not ready at checkin, i had to wait for more than 2 hours, also the room furniture is not as shown in pictures, it is old design, and very small rooms. No air-condition, no refrigerator. you pay more than you get. the best thing about the hotel is its location

Just a place to sleep

The room was fine, but cramped and covering only the bare minimum; the main advantage of this hotel is the location, walking distance from so much of West End London. This is a hotel for people who aren't planning to spend much time in their hotel room, but want a convenient location for touristing around London.

great hotel, needs some sound proofing

The location of this hotel is prime. So if you want to be in the heart of London, and not pay an arm and a leg, this is may be a good choice. The hotel is clean, and the staff is generally helpful and polite. The bed was hard, and the pillows left much to be desired. All this was within acceptable limits for the price. My main complaint comes from the lack of soundproofing. It can be quite bothersome if you have a passionate couple next door, or if you plan on some of the same and prefer not to have everyone know. Also make sure to pack a cat5/network cable with you, or be prepared to pay for wireless access. Considering it's 2010, and that your average roadside motel has free wifi, this was also a bit frustrating.

Small rooms - no air - nothing special

Staff was fine. location is good if not very good. My first time to london and I hear all rooms are tiny so I find it difficult to compare. That said, this room did not have any air except for the ability to pry open a very old window to the alley. If we had been on the street it would have been noisey. The lobby guest computers were out of order - which is a pain if you don't have a labtop.

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.

Great Location

This hotel is in a terrific location and is in easy walking distance to Covent Garden, Buckingham Palace and other great attractions. Unfortunately the hotel does not have individual air conditioning in each room so a very small fan and a window that only opened about 12" was not enough for a a rare hot night in London. Also, the city decided to scrape and repave the roadway outside our window starting at 11PM. Needless to say the heat, noise and smell were unbearable. Not the hotels fault however and the staff was accommodating. We'd stay there again..

Quick gateway

Location of hotel is very good. Its located in area where all theatres and clubs within few block walking distance. The Trafalgar square and Palace are within 10-20 minutes walk. Hotel service is very good and prompt. Hotel is clean. Breakfast is simple but has some selection and variety. Minuses is lack of air conditioning, which is not needed most of the year and if you have inside room you don't have good air circulation, but there are no noise coming from outside. Outside units could be very noisy. Rooms are small but addequate for 1-2 people. After all you did not come to London to spend your time inside your room. Wireless internet works good, but you need to renew your password every day. Otherwise good hotel in central location.
