What a lovely hotel! The location is perfect for walking to the British Museum, theaters and shops and restaurants. Staff were welcoming and knowledgeable.
Room 310 was filled with light, had windows that opened and although one set of windows looked across to another building, the other set were framed by trees. Both the room and bathroom were warm and inviting. The bed was extremely comfortable with crisp linens. The closet had removable hangers - whoopee!
The bathroom had a walk in shower with lots of hot water and sensible shower heads. Towels were large and fluffy and facecloths were provided (not often the case in UK).
The room had a pleasant entryway and a nice sitting area by the window. There was a mini bar (expensive of course). Bottled water was provided daily (no charge). There was a 110V outlet on the good sized desk. No free wifi.
The restaurant was very busy and a reservation is a good idea. I ate lunch and dinner here one time and both were excellent with outstanding service. There is a lovely sitting room (with honor bar) on the first floor but because I had a bit of a cold I decided not to expose others to my germs by using it.
Yes, it's expensive but worth it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Covent Garden Hotel opened in April 1996 but the building dates back to the 1890’s when it operated as a French hospital. It is located in Monmouth Street, a charming cobbled street in the heart of the theatre district and surrounded by interesting boutiques, restaurants, cafes and bars. Covent Garden Hotel is "a quirky modern take on traditional English style." The hotel's interior has been dramatically designed by owner and design director Kit Kemp, and reflects her personal attention to detail. The ground floor is just like a stage set. A quietly bustling lobby leads into Brasserie Max, the hotel’s bar and restaurant. Up a sweeping stone staircase and into a sumptuous wood paneled drawing room and library, each with a log burning fireplace, quirky furniture and vivid upholstery. Downstairs there is a gym, private event space and a screening room. ... more less
