At £45 a night complete with breakfast you can't really go wrong here. I was working in Soho for this trip so the location was bang on. The room I had was extremely well maintained, clean and modern. The shared bathroom and shower on my floor was spotless too. As for the included breakfast there was plenty to chose from.... More

A clean nice place to stay. Free Breakfast. Readily accessible kitchen to help yourself. Central location that is very close to the subway and most attractions. Staff members are so friendly and ready to help. I would rather recommend for future travel.

Stayed for 7 nights. Breakfasts in the morning were very relaxed. Room service handled everything perfectly (though shampoos and conditions are only given for the first day). I wish toilets and showers are not shared, but that was not a big problem. The key wasn't functioning at first (as for me, it was a touch key), and staffs had helped... More

Stayed there for 4 nights. Breakfasts in the morning were very relaxed. Room service handled everything perfectly. The shared bathroom/shower had me nervous at first but no trouble at all. A lot of shampoo's and conditions get left behind by guests so feel free to use some of that rather than buying your own. Managed to lose the key to... More

Stayed here on a Saturday night with 2 friends for a reunion. £100 for the room was amazing value and for what we got, it was worthwhile! We requested a top storey room for amazing views and it was accommodated. We also stored our luggage both before and after our stay which was very kind, so we could explore the... More

Despite of the reviews we had a lovely time here in london. our en-suite room very clean, large and comfortable.The location is at a prime position with a very short distance from Covent Garden, Good shower facilities and kept in good warm conditions. Luggage holding services were great and felt pretty secure, and front desk guys were helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Trip Advisor. I am surprised you found LSE High Holborn expensive, as our rates are normally considered great value for money in this most central of locations in Covent Garden. Our competitive prices are also inclusive of complimentary wifi and breakfast. I am also concerned by your comment about... More

Bloody expensive for what it is. Yes this is London but this is just a bubble that one day it will burst. The place is soulless, the rooms are small, the beds are small and bad, the toilet is common, the showers are timny (I cannot imagine how an obese person can fir their tiny shower!) Overall a terrible property... More

I stayed here with two others in early September. One of the rooms was very quiet, but the other faced the street and was quite noisy. The bathroom and toilet weren't the cleanest, but for the price they were decent. The rooms themselves were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good, and you are able to store your luggage the... More

Chose this as it was great value and the location was very convenient for us. Walked to Covent Garden, Chinatown, Oxford Street, and took the Tube to further locations (Holborn station is about 5 minutes' walk away, with a Sainsburys just across the station). We booked a triple room with en suite. Condition of room was basic, with three single... More

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.
