Honestly the best hotel in London- have stayed here thrice, the last time being in December. The location is amazing - so close to Soho, the Strand, Leicester Square and Covent Garden. The rooms are sparkling clean and so comfortable, and the service is immaculate. The staff are friendly and they even received parcels for me a few days before and had them waiting in the room when I checked in. Incredible service.

I booked a room for my daughters 18th and what a fabulous hotel and location. The staff are delightful, helpful and friendly and they even hand made an 18th birthday card and put some balloons on the bed with a complimentary bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The room was very well thought out and everything is of a high standard and quality. The mini kitchen is an added bonus, and even the TV comes through to the bathroom speakers! The bedroom is spotless and very very clean. I was extremely impressed with the hotel and will be returning. Location is excellent if you are going to see a show like we did and is within walking distance. Covent Gardens is a beautiful area and I would highly recommend this hotel. Its a gem of a find. Thank you for such a memorable stay. Room 406. 10th Jan.
