Covent Garden Hotel
Covent Garden, London
6 reviews of Covent Garden Hotel in English
Apparently the screening room used to be a morgue when this was a hospital back in the day. I watched a horror movie down there and it totally freaked me out….
Other than that it’s a good, if compact, hotel.
Covent garden hotel is perfect for central london either for a weekend of shopping and shows or just for a weekend of indulgence.
The bar serves great cocktails (these are quite high in price upto £16) and a greta wine lists again quite pricey a small glass is sround £10 however its very nice wine, we sat on the pavement and just watched the world go by the service was prompt and we felt very spoilt.
They also do a lovely afternoon tea with Champagne and some wonderful cakes and lovely individual tea pots, the attention to detail is a real treat.
The rooms and hotel decor are as expected very good and to a high standard, Rooms are around £200 the service was very good and it felt very welcoming and didnt have the typical tourist feel that some hotels in London have.
Luckily for me this was the nearest hotel to my last office - so where else was a boy to stay?
I dont think it is quite up to the standard of the same group’s Soho Hotel, but again it delivers the same understated modern easy luxury.
The bar and restaurant also are great for all 3 meals of the day, though again Refuel at Soho Hotel has the edge.
But for a central hotel, close to great sites and restaurants it is hard to beat.
This hotel is pure, understated luxury. I was lucky enough to stay here for one night on my 21st birthday, and one night was definitely not enough to experience all it has to offer. The staff here were amazing, and upgraded my room to a master suite, making a poor student feel like a queen for a day.
The rooms are beautiful; mine had a king-sized bed, a flat-screen tv, a huge bathtub, a walk-in power shower and all the mod-cons one would expect from a 5-star luxury boutique hotel. The minibar was neatly and discreetly tucked away in a cupboard and contained all manner of things - from candles to gourmet nuts, it was definitely well-stocked (even if a bag of crisps was around £2.50).
All in all, the hotel was pretty perfect - in a great location just off Covent Garden with many little boutiques and quirky shops around to visit and within walking distance of one of London’s main attractions. The breakfast the next morning was also perfect - the eggs were not overcooked and the waitresses were charming and friendly.
However, I do have one gripe with this hotel and that was their lack of WiFi access. Although they have WiFi, they charge for it, and the rate is astronomical - I think about £20 for two hours. If you’re paying that price for a room, wouldn’t you expect it to be free?
