Gave this cinema the honour of being the first cinema visit for our children. It pretty much ticked every box from comfort to viewing experience. The screen was quite a walk to get to but still worth the effort as the seating area was large...More

I have been to a lot of Odeon cinemas before, but was quite impressed with this It is in a great location and the seats were surprisingly comfy and had more space per seat than I had expected. Will definitely come back

The Odeon in Covent Garden is not a state of the art place, but perfectly fine for a cheapish (by London prices at least!) cinema in a great location. Only four screens (I think) and lots of stairs to walk down and up - so...More

A pleasant enough cinema and can not fault the staff. However I found the seats amongst the most uncomfortable cinema seats I have sat in. After two and and a half hours I was glad to stand up.

This historic venue is at the heart of Central London, easily accessible from Tottenham Court Rd, Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations it offers a much cheaper alternative to other local arthouse cinemas.

Killing time before a show. Lots of stairs but managed with limited mobility. Enjoyed film in comfortable seats. Toilets very clean. Staff very cheerful

The place feels like it needs a refurbishment, though it is not all bad. Overall it did what you expect of a cinema, though be prepared to have to prebook as it is busy

Really needs a refurbishment - way behind vue - an extra £4 per seat their to get recliner seats, better technology etc would be well worth it. Wouldn’t recommend the cinema for now and I’m AMAZED they haven’t refurbed a cinema in this location. Screen...More
