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.

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

We loved this hotel. The room (deluxe, with a view of the city on the 6th floor) was comfortable and chic, with all the requisite amenities. The bed was comfortable, the room quiet. The concierge was helpful. We had a drink at the bar, not the "disco." The bar was fine;

Had stayed in another “5 star” hotel on my previous visit and St. Martins Lane blew it out of the water. Some highlights: 1. Despite being in a bustling area, it’s remarkably quiet. Could not hear any noise at night. 2. The service from the front desk to the concierge to room

Literally the worst service I have experienced in more than 20 years of travel. Slow, inattentive, bill errors - a catalogue of errors. Room very pleasant, but service is as bad as it gets. Restaurant (Asia de Cuba) and the bar also massively overrated.

We had a very enjoyable afternoon tea in the Den at St Martins Lane Hotel to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The Den is small and cosy with a quirky feel to it and the afternoon tea was excellent. It catered well for my daughter's vegetarian requirements and my husband's

They have ‘Double Double’ rooms which has 2 queen beds. The loft double double is very large and nice. You can book for 2, I have done the same with my teenage daughters. If they don’t have any available rooms, I suggest you also look at Mondrian, sister hotel on the river, river view room is amazing, although hotel not in middle of Covent Garden area.
