The best thing about Strand Palace is the location - I honestly don't think there is a better spot to explore London from on foot. The breakfast was also really decent and the spread substantial. The rooms are a bit small but it is impeccably clean and very comfortable. I'll definitely stay there again when returning to London!

Have visited this hotel a number of times now. The location is great for all London attractions and the theatres. The rooms clean tho can be on the small side (room 886). Breakfast is buffet style and very nice with enough choice for most people. The hotel has two excellent eating establishments. Carvery was very nice as was the Indian... More

I have stayed at this hotel before, the location is superb, you couldn't ask for a better location if you are wanting to visit the main attractions for London and there's no need for the tube or bus. Covent Garden is a 2 minute walk away, whilst a stroll through Covent Garden will take you to Cambridge Circus and Soho,... More

We booked the Strand Palace because of the location and were not disappointed. Rooms are small but clean but they do need new pillows and mattresses. Overall enjoyed our stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I always stay at the Strand. I like its position in London. I find the rooms clean and comfortable. Some single rooms are small. It has gone from a three star to four star since I have been going there. I hope they don't price there self's out of my price range!

Traveled with my teenage daughter to London last week and wanted a safe and fairly local base so we could explore the city with ease. So glad I chose the Strand, it was close and/or within walking distance to the theater district, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and a short bus ride to...

I checked in before the 2pm check in time, but was not charged the surcharge ( £20 )for doing so. I was delighted to receive an upgrade from standard room to Executive King The room was clean & well presented.. But apart from being lager than the standard and a few extra odds and bobs( face flannels, slippers & robe... More

This hotel has tiny rooms - we could barely fit our 2 suitcases in - but its location is great. It's near transport, Covent garden markets and restaurants and down the road from Buckingham. Concierge is helpful too. Skip the breakfast and go to a nearby cafe instead where you'll most likely get better food and service.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood 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.
