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

Use opportunity to return to summer school by staying at London School of Economics student residence. Be prepared for shared bathroom and for rich choice at breakfast. The place is perfectly managed, clean and modern

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. So when I had a couple nights in London I decide to give the dorm experience a go after weighting the pros and cons of the it compares to the Travelodge around the corner (stayed there before basic, clean private rooms with en suite bathrooms). Both have a great central location.... More

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

Great place to stay if you want something cheap near the theatres. We had a double room. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and the room was clean. A shared toilet, shower and kitchen with 5 other rooms. Fluffy towels, shampoo, shower gel and soap were provided. It was a 5 min walk to the theatre. Staff were friendly... More

I booked into LSE HH Residence for price (£90 for two nights) and closeness to The Poetry Society premises on Betterton Street in Covent Garden where I had business.

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.
