Great location for anyone who wants to be in the centre of London. Easy access to everything and getting to Heathrow was dead simple... Hop the Picadilly line give yourself 50 minutes and you are there ...all for the cost of tube fare! I would recommend staying here and the included breakfast is very good... Lots of different healthy food... More

Had a girls weekend in London and stayed here. We couldn't check in until 3 but were able to leave our luggage in a room downstairs. Checked in and went to our room. 3 single beds and a bathroom. Comfy beds and pillows but basic room. No mirror, curtains were falling down slightly. It was cheap and we only spent... More

Spent one night here on a girl's night out. Great accommodation for this type of affair, very reminiscent of basic student accommodation, not rough and ready as very simply furnished but clean and bright. The location, as others have said, is perfect with a price to match, some rooms have superb views. So a sound investment for an undoubtably expensive... More

One night bed and breakfast for a single bed room in central London for under £80 is attractive. The photos are true to life as the quality of the rooms is excellent, although the bed is fairly spartan. No telly or tea-making in the room, but free and fast wi-fi is available, so you could watch or listen on-line. The... More

The most important thing of this place is its great central location. You have the underground close, walking you can get to Convert Garden, London eye (20 min walk), etc. The place is quite and clean (at least the room I got), also the shared bathroom. The bed is a little short, so consider that if you are tall. The... More

As long as you know you aren't getting a hotel (and for this price you shouldn't be expecting one!), High Holborn is a wonderful place to stay in the heart of London. My only complaint is that the rooms get a bit stuffy when the weather is warm because there is no fan or A/C.

I am LSE alumni who never lived in halls.

I stayed here recently with my daughter on a theatre trip. The location was fantastic only being 5 mins from Covent Garden and having lots of shopping and dinning opportunities on the doorstep. We had a decent room with new fittings which had a fresh, clean feel to them. The shared bathroom was clean but rather small but it was... 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.
