I stayed here in mid-August 2006. I probably will never go back unless I get a lower rate. The hotel tries to be hip but basically ends up giving you low value for money. Small chair in the room was plastic. The TV was miniscule (although I heard they have upgraded). The two bright spots for this hotel are: 1.... More

This was my third or fourth stay at St. Martin's Lane and probably my 10th at a Morgan's hotel. This will probably be my last stay at this specific hotel. There was nothing horrible about the hotel but it was just not a good value for the money. To be fair, the currently weak US dollar is part of a... More

Outstanding location is probably it's best asset. Staff are excellent, friendly and welcoming (notwithstanding queues on checking out). Rooms very nice and although on small side, feel remarkably spaceous with lots of natural light. Make sure you have a credit card though as debit cards are not accepted for purposes of bill payment or credit checking - most surprising for... More

For 268pounds/1person, all would expect a far bigger room with at least bath tube together (not to mention also a proper swimming pool downstairs which is missing); slow service in restaurant, I had to wait 25 minutes for a simple sandwich, they did NOT even apologise!!

I'm from Mexico City and stayed for 15 nights at St. Martins Lane Hotel. I really had a good time there. The Light Bar is amazing during weekends. The staff, well, most of all, are very friendly, but definitely the very best part of the staff is the concierge, Josh Brown, who is very friendly and helpful and make your... More

There are some positives about this hotel as it is very pretty, though small, and the staff was terrific but the buck stopped there. As Priceline guests we received a room that was 220 square feet (not even shown on St Martins Lane website in room descriptions) and our 5* "luxury" room had no bath, shower stall only. The previous... More

Unfortunately a case of form over functionality and certainly an example of trendiness over friendliness! In terms of atmosphere, it is exactly what you would expect for a boutique hotel and design of the hotel and rooms is great but that is where it ends. At every encounter the staff prove extremely unhelpful and while they all look extremely young... More

We found great rates for this hotel via Travelzoo and booked two awesome rooms for about half the regular price. The hotel is very swanky (think the Mondrion Hotel) and I feel like it was in the middle of everything...located a short walk from Trafalgar Square, the theater district, great shopping and great nightlife! A great concierge helped us find... More

Disappointed with the smaller than expected standard rooms (and we booked a twin and double but got two doubles) but great views and fantastic service. When will hotels like this realise that no-one unless blind drunk will pay 3.50 for a standard kit-kat.. so on-one buys anything.. my kids were disappointed not to be allowed to raid the mini bar!...
