St Martins Lane London Hotel
Ranked #77 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Words cannot express how much I adore this hotel. There wasn't a single missed detail during my three-night stay. I arrived very tired from 22-hours of travel and meetings via taxi. I had the one mean taxi driver in London and his credit machine wasn't working. The bell man -- without even asking -- went to the front desk to get the GBP to cover my LHR > Covent Garden ride. So helpful!

As a vegan, I often struggle to eat, however the extremely caring room service staff personally delivered the veg menu to my door to walk me through my dinner options at Asia de Cuba downstairs. The food was divine!

My garden room with an outdoor patio was tranquil, spacious and so comfortable. I loved that bed! And who doesn't love Malin and Goetz bath products?

St. Martins Lane has become one of my top five favorite hotels in the world. It's worth every pence.

While I always expect quality from a Morgan hotel, St Martins Lane Hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. The staff provided us with exceptional service, from the doormen, the front desk, the concierge and even the manager, everyone could not have been
friendlier or more
accommodating. Our room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was large and modern and many amenities were available to use or purchase.
As for the location, it is absolutely incredible! It is in the heart of the city and within walking distance are endless restaurants, stores, shops and theaters. We could not wait to get out every day and explore our surroundings. This is a great location for business travelers, as well as couples and families looking for a great central location with a lot of choices for food and activities.

I could not recommend this hotel more. There is no doubt I have found my new "home" in London.

I have stayed at this hotel more than the once, and every time it meets my standards with the addition of friendly attentive staff. The restaurants food is excellent with the front of house team being truly professional. Sam the restaurant manager is kind and skilled at his work, making me and my friend feel welcome and able to enjoy the high quality we expect.

My husband and I stayed here for a week at the end of September. I don't think you could stay at a better location; we were able to walk to almost everything and being so close to Covent Gardens was fantastic. We had a studio suite (#205) and the room was large. There were no "drawers" for clothing but there were two sets of shelves and although I brought way too much clothing there was plenty of room. Everything was modern and sparse - exactly how I like it. I think this was the first hotel I've stayed at where I didn't have to request extra towels. The towels were thick and huge and we had at least 6 bath towels at any given time. Bathroom was very large, modern and immaculate. The staff was incredible. They greeted us by name each day and were warm and helpful. All of our requests, for example the coffee/tea set up, were responded to IMMEDIATELY. I was hesitant about going to London with nothing more than a bucket list of places we wanted to visit but the concierge(s) were incredible. Joey and Mike provided information, reservations, suggestions, etc. every step of the way. We even got a last minute reservation for tea at the Ritz, which usually needs to be booked months in advance, thanks to Joey. There is nothing they could have done to make this trip any better than it was and this was one of the most fantastic trips we've ever taken!

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!

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
