I was a little hesitant to book this hotel after reading some pretty mixed reviews, but the price was so good for Covent garden (half the price of most other hotels in the area) that I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did. First off, location, location, location. It’s walking distance to so many amazing landmarks, which was great. My room seemed to have been fairly recently remodeled, it was modern and clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful with a number of things. I had a lovely view of the park nearby. The only two things which were somewhat negative (but not deal breakers for me) were 1. The free continental breakfast is not a breakfast. There’s a great place on the corner to get something proper, and 2. The mattress was not very comfortable. But I was so exhausted from walking I fell right asleep anyway. This is a great hotel, I would definitely stay again. Highly recommend!

Well situated near an underground station.the hall needs new carpeting and the elevators are old and slow. The room was very clean and the staff was polite and helpful.
