Located in the bustling Theatre district in London’s Covent Garden, St Martins Lane London 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 with a lobby that welcomes guests into high-concept design with the sophistication of a modern museum and the joy of a carnival light show. 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. For those sunnier days, step out into the tropics of The Den Terrace and enjoy our exclusive food pairings accompanied by a glass of Champagne. At night, guests will find a hidden entrance to Blind Spot London, an innovative cocktail bar, behind the tea counter’s posh facade. Blind Spot London 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 London - 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. Residents can also explore the delights of London’s hottest fitness experience at Gymbox Covent Garden. At any time of day, enjoy the gym’s facilities, fitness classes (subject to availability) and complimentary gym kit laundering.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a pleasant stay here for one night in the family room. The beds are small but comfortable. One member of staff really stood out and that was the lovely Visar. He helped us to our room and to get taxis etc. Visar was always smiling and nothing was to much trouble, my children loved him! Absolutely great man

We had drinks in the bar. We were disappointed that the Blind Spot that we’d booked the previous day was not available due to an event, so we had to stay in the ground floor bar, however we were given a complementary drink each to compensate. Juliana Lana looked after us well and the cocktails we subsequently ordered were delicious.

First we arrived and had the kindest reception by all staff. The wonderful young woman who has short hair and works around the front desk was the kindest most knowledgeable person. She even helped us upgrade our room on our second day of visit. Both rooms were comfortable, clean and welcoming. We were on the first floor and had no issues but were moved up onto the 6th floor to a larger room for our Amex card. It was amazing!!! I will need to get her name again since we are still at the hotel. Next, everyone is exceptional in the hotel but also the restaurant… I was sick on our first day and missed breakfast in the restaurant but my family couldn’t stop raving!!! My daughter (picky 6 year old) ate the best omelette. On day two I could manage to go down and we had Frayer assist us. He was so attentive and kind. We had amazing service from him and were so thankful for his help. As I said we’re still here…. It’s my mom’s birthday and first time back to the Uk since she was little. We are so thankful for all the help and kindness on this trip at St Martin by the amazing individuals working here. I’m just blown away. We felt that we paid a great price through our Amex but they really made our experience worth every penny.

I had the best experience at St Martin’s Lane Hotel again. Starting with all the experience from the start for bookings with Patrik, going to all the support from the front desk for the check in with Kaisha, Paula, Jenny, Ottavia, Franco and Gabriel. Aldo, Andrew, Visar, Fabio and Bandeira helped keep my belongings safe and always welcomed me to the hotel building with a friendly smile. I had the best time in the bar with Cleverson advising and serving the best cocktails with such a lovely sympathy. Dinner was amazing. The food very tasty and well cooked, excellent cooking skills and team. Manuel was outstanding serving us as well as Eriko. Kyle and Mustafa helped out and were absolutely professional. Marek did the best cocktails for dinner. During breakfast Juliana received us with a huge smile and contagious sympathy. Skender was our amazing server as well as Ariti. Joselito and Fryer helped bringing a few bits and bobs without hesitation upon request and Viviane came to know if we need anything else. When you get in St Martin’s Lane Hotel you can feel friendly welcomed. All staff are amazing and generous. I truly recommend it.
