I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Middle Eight. The location is awesome - right next to Covent Garden, which is such a lovely spot in London, and really well connected between Holborn and Covent Garden underground stations. The rooms are absolutely beautifully furnished: the finishing is really sleek, and the room was kitted out really well (huge TVs, Sonos systems). I really love the 'music' based theme. The gym is also really well equipped, while the bar is beautiful. Overall, was a wonderful stay - highly recommend!

Booked Middle 8 for our Honeymoon. Interior design is fabulous on arrival. Issues faced during check in, room not cleaned on first night of Honeymoon, come on what could be worse! No attention to detail, room booked for 2 guests only one robe and slippers, lighting incorrectly wired up on room, no bottle opener for mini bar which only contained soft drinks On second day changed room key 3 times all after each other We arrived back at hotel at 22:50 only for bar manager to try to refuse service at bar, this would be OK for 2 things, we arrived before closing time, residents should be served post standard bar hours, his attitude was disgusting and appeared somewhat racist towards my wife who is of Indian heratige My my feelings known to hotel management, who kindly offered an upgrade which was accepted. New suite was excellent however poor service continued, coffee cups not washed during cleaning, coffee pods not topped up. We asked reception/ concierge for advice on lively venues that open late to visit, on which I was given a list of chain pubs, where is the local knowledge or assistance in obtaining a booking for somewhere nice and different to run of the mill places. People in this role should have knowledge and ability to find availability and good venues Breakfast was included in price but very poor in all respects, coffee once ordered takes 10 minutes once ordered, this would be OK if hotel was busy but very quite, breakfast selection poor. Nothing on view to tempt you in the morning. Day 4 no Sausages, no cheese or meat board available at breakfast Limited cereal selection. Staff tried to appease but unfortunately standards were poor, eggs incorrectly cooked as requested Booked the hotel for location and gym, location is great but gym equipment is 3rd rate, gym room was super cold and no heating controls, nothing to wipe down pre and post gym equipment, it’s obvious who was in charge of purchasing and setting up of the hotel gym does not attend a high spec gym Advertised as a 5* hotel but with 3* standards and attention to detail I know people will read and say just another grumpy guest, I write this as to encourage the hotel management to listen to issues and help resolve them to allow for a great visit for future guests. Last question we always ask would you stop again, resoundingly this would be a no, there are other hotels such as Hoxton located nearby and provide much better service, or spend slightly more and go to the Savoy Is this teething issues on a new hotel or dos it face problems from the onset? Will Middle 8 management address basic issues???

Staying here for 2 nights was the perfect getaway - a hidden gem right in the heart of the city that feels extremely tranquil and peaceful. A truly 5* experience - from the quality of the finishing, the food, the quality of the service. A very well equipped gym too and great social spaces including the bars and restaurant I can't wait to return!

Staying here for a weekend was just blissful - on the doorstep of Covent Garden, perfectly located, spacious yet warm and inviting when you walk in, a chilled and vibrant atmosphere in the evenings, and great food! The rooms were lovely with incredibly comfortable beds and great service. The library was a real highlight - so well-curated! Excited to be back soon!

Having just spent 3 days at the brand new Middleeight Hotel in Covent Garden we were absolutely blown away by the quality of this brand new Hotel. The hotel is situated just a stones throw from Covent Garden with a huge selection of atmosphere/life, food, drink and shopping to explore, it is simply a cool area with so much to enjoy compared to the rest of London which felt almost empty/soulless without the tourists. The Hotel screams luxury from the moment you arrive, finished with natural woods, marble and golden hues with music seemingly following you everywhere you go in the Hotel. We stayed in a suite which was simply perfect and finished to the highest level, a huge space with freestanding bath, enormous shower and his and hers sinks were perfect for our family, with a separate bedroom for our children the room was a luxurious paradise which was exceptionally generous in size compared to other hotels we have stayed at in London. The Restaurant and Bars are so inviting and every meal and drink we enjoyed was perfect. Having previously stayed at the Ham Yard Hotel, Cafe Royal and ME Hotel this Hotel offers a new level of contemporary luxury to the heart of London and is a must experience. We will be back without hesitation. Daniel & Family
