“Great for business”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

I stayed 3 nights while in a business trip in London. The room is small, but clean and nice. Bathroom is super clean and modern. I stayed in the 325 room, which has an awful view, but I didn't need one. I don't recommend the hotel with you're traveling accompanied, because the design of the room is perfect for one person, that's it. Staff is super nice and helpful. They have partnership with a fitness center next door, which is very convenient. Hotel location is great: close to Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and other attractions and main transportation. I would go back!

We received excellent service from the time our cab pulled up in front of the hotel. The room was great. Not large but very comfortable. The beds and bedding were amazing. All the hotel and restaurant staff went out of their way to make our stay a great one.

This hotel from the second you walk in you are treated like royalty with the staff falling over themselves to help you. Rooms are a little small and you have to enter the gym box by leaving the hotel, but the rooms are so clean, bathroom is amazing. The bar downstairs is very trendy with the cocktails made with perfection. The breakfast buffet is outstanding with everything you will need but the cooked food can take a little longer. The times are great though with breakfast served from 6.30 - 11 (never had that before). Great hotel, amazing location and helpful staff!

Great location close to all that beats in this vibrant city.
The rooms are a little small but that is London and when you are in the location of this hotel, who cares.... Walk out the cool door of this hotel and you are 3 minutes walk to some of London's best atractions and if you like trendy bars and a vibrant atmosphere the streets around this hotel go off after work so you will have no trouble finding friends and quality drinking establishments. The hotel is super trendy and modern and has a cool bar/restaurant on the bottom floor, along with some of the coolest teeth seats I have seen. The rooms look over the bustiling streets or the old London rooftops and have some cool features such as mood lighting and a nice roomy bathroom. The beds are super comfy after a day of exploring London streets and the blinds will keep the light out if you have had a big night. We found the service here really good, especially the concierge service. My wife had wanted to do High Tea in London and I had left it a tad late... After calling around I had no luck. One call from the concierge and I was out of trouble as he swiftly made a booking at one of the best high tea's in London. When we arrived at the High Tea we were treated to some extra special attention due to our concierge friend and contact. This was super cool and helpful. So make sure you use the well connected and knowledgable concierge. The hotel has a car park at the back if you happen to be driving like we were and a host of breakfast places around. Enjoy thuis trendy and modern hotel that is in one of the best locations for a fun stay in London.

Room Tip: Speak to the concierge to get the low down on the good places to visit that are off the tourist trac...

Awesome modern hotel in a perfect location. Friendly & helpful staff. Decor that wows and a nice bar to spend the evenings. The suite with the open air patio was ideal for the summer

Plenty of options for F&B within a 5 minute radius

Room Tip: Suites with the patios are a must try!

We chose to stay here again, after staying a few years ago. After reading a few reviews I began to worry it wouldn't be up to the same standard as previously.

On arrival our car was taken to the car park and our luggage into reception. On checking in I was convinced I had read the reviews for another hotel! Check in was efficient and courteous, even giving us a free upgrade for our wedding anniversary.

Our room was on the sixth floor and was just as I remembered from our previous stay - clean, spacious, crisp bed linen, enormous bathroom and plenty of storage. Our tea tray arrived promptly and was refilled each day.

A truly wonderful stay in an extremely central hotel,

I organised to have my wife's birthday in London last week, and Nicole was very helpful in getting a few little surprises organised in the hotel for us, including champagne, flowers etc.

The hotel has a very cool edge, and the staff are all friendly and helpful. As a London resident for many years, even I was impressed by the lengths they would go to help with regards to shows, dinner reservations etc. Rooms were clean, beds comfy and bathrooms were lovely. Our room was a brilliant white throughout (room 158).

All in all a great stay, only reason for not giving 5 stars is the price (over £350 for one night and not including breakfast). But it was expected for a luxury central London hotel that is walking distance from Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Mayfair, Trafalgar Square, etc etc. Leicester Square tube is literally 5 minutes walk.

Not visited this time, but the hotel bar and onsite restaurant (Asia de Cuba) are both very good as well.

Highly recommended if this hotel is in your price range.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located in the bustling Theatre district in London’s Covent Garden, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring evolution on English luxury. This boutique hotel retains all the youthful, unexpected charm of a London hideaway, at the very heart of the art-loving, energetic West End. St Martins Lane is truly a hidden gem – a newly renovated lobby welcomes guests into high-concept design with the sophistication of a modern museum and the joy of a carnival light show. The soaring and theatrical space, a reinterpretation of Philippe Starck’s original lobby, plays with colour, proportion, and movement in a way that energises every guest and inspires active self-expression for the duration of the stay. Guests can begin their journey in the Den, a modern gathering place and decompression zone. Situated just off the lobby, the Den is the perfect place to enjoy Afternoon Tea, play a game of backgammon or sip on a Gin & Tonic. The decor is warm and sophisticated with a tongue-in-cheek British flair – even the art on the walls is irreverent, animating the space with larger-than-life portraits and visual puns. Embrace the journey with a striking new look from London’s finest hairdressers at the neighbouring Jones & Payne salon. Luxurious treatments and innovative vision make this salon a place of new beginnings and creative expression. At night, guests will find a hidden entrance to Blind Spot, an innovative cocktail bar, behind the tea counter’s posh facade. Blind Spot is a golden cocktail sanctuary designed like a modern hunting lodge and inspired by the colours and aromas of exotic tea leaves. Light and colour continue to enhance the guest experience in every corner of St Martins Lane - interactive light displays brighten each room, transforming them into spaces of youthful excitement and changing mosaics of colour. Special garden rooms offer private patios and floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the vibrancy of the city into every room. At the newly renovated Asia de Cuba, concept chef Luis Pous joins restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow to offer a dynamic Latin-Asian fusion menu in an inspiring space. Guests can explore all the unpredictable delights of London and end the day with an invigorating workout at Gymbox Covent Garden, London’s most unorthodox fitness experience. ... more   less
