If you are visiting London to do Convent Garden, Buckingham palace and similar sights, this hotel is perfectly situated. It's near two different tube lines and a busy bus route. But I found the hotel itself to be a bit old school, sort of like Grandma's drapes. The bar drinks were very expensive I got a decent price on the... More

Nicely located for easy access to the Southbank & to Waterloo station, this is a good hotel for business meetings. Meeting rooms are clean & well prepared, with good facilities available for post meeting socialising.

Very good location. The minimum one can expect to sleep but noisy rooms, defective heating, very small bathrooms and bad checkin, at least for late arrivals. They should either improve or reduce prices. Some years ago the whole package was much better!

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
