My wife and I stayed for a total of 10 nights at this hotel, in 2 different rooms. A brilliant hotel. Everything was great.
Sited on a quiet side street in the middle of bustling Covent Garden: a zone of small cobbled streets converging on Seven Dials, many trendy shops (especially shoes and fashion clothing) and a very good choice of adjacent cafes and restaurants.
A stylish boutique hotel with a very good restaurant: restrained chic; very friendly and helpful staff with a strong customer focus.
Most of our time was in a deluxe room, at the back of the hotel, looking out on to green trees and totally insulated by double-glazed windows; quiet air conditioning - an oasis of serenity, hard to believe that we were in central London.
Bed was large very comfortable King with great pillows, the bathroom was excellent - marble, walk-in shower with plenty of hot water at good pressure; heated towel rail, bidet and toilet; great toiletries from an adjacent specialty shop.
Spacious cupboards and shelves, good sized room safe, wonderful furnishings, comfortable chairs, felt spacious. Wi-fi is somewhat expensive (maxes out at 20 GBP per day).
An unexpected bonus: an excellent specialist coffee shop, Monmouth Cofee, is only 3 doors away: superb espresso coffee (as good as anything I have tried in Auckland or Melbourne - the ultimate compliment).
10 minutes walk to a choice of 3 metro stations, lots of trendy shops, multiple theatres and easy access to the main sights of London.
Overall a superb hotel in an excellent site.
- 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
