In London overnight for a party, then a theatre visit the next day, I thought I would try this hotel. Really glad I did. It absolutely ticked all the key boxes for me. Competent, friendly, enthusiastic, efficient staff. Big, comfortable bed. Wonderful bathroom with great shower. Nice big telly! It is actually a pretty cool place too. Loved the styling.... More

I stayed here for four nights over New Year. Its a great location and was excellent for New Year. We booked way in advance and got a reasonable price considering the location and time of year. This is definitly a "trendy hotel". If you want luxury, go to the Savoy.

I stayed at the hotel as a treat from my husband for valentines - Sat 14th Feb. My overall experience was disappointing. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels and the St Martins Lane Hotel appealed due to its location, which is perfect, however we should have saved our money and stayed at a Premier Inn or Travelodge as...

The staff were great especially Gabriel and Fatima. The location is excellent and close to westend. Need to improve breakfast, and have a space to have a quick drink or coffee. Enjoyed the experience and would love to go back.

Our refurbished room was beautiful. We stayed in a loft, huge room with floor to ceiling windows, big settee, gorgeous bed and very, very nice bathroom. Front of house is a slick operation, staff are friendly and welcoming with a reassuringly professional approach. Have stayed at both SML and Sanderson, prefer SML for location and quieter, calming atmosphere. Push the... More

When you are trying to find this place, look for a building fronted by lots of glass a short distance up from the Trafalgar Square end with absolutely nothing to indicate it's a hotel - you are supposed to be telepathic on your first visit. In Jan/Feb 2015, it is undergoing refurbishment and there is no lounge or bar area.... More

Dear Cotsmere, Thank you for your review and I’m very sorry to hear we let you down on this occasion. After 16 years, St Martins Lane is in the process of getting a face lift so our public areas are unfortunately reduced whilst the works take place. We have worked hard to ensure we keep the disruption to our guests... More

There is no question about this place. Right next to Trafalgar square - in a happening place of London. Rooms are excellent. Unlike other hotels you don't get the beautiful view of Thames. That is negligible for a hotel of this standard. Definitely recommend to my friends.

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.
