“Excellent as expected...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

My daughters and I stayed here 3 years ago and couldn't wait to return. The rooms are all brightly decorated, beds comfy, curtains to darken the rooms, large bathrooms with separate showers. Great service all around the hotel. The restaurant is about triple the size that it used to be - big improvement. The location in the seven dials is perfect for walking all over the west end. Lots of shops, museums, restaurants, tube stations etc. You can't go wrong staying here. We were here for New Year's Eve/Day, they had champagne for guests in the drawing room at midnight. A couple of notes - internet access is expensive (20 pounds/day) and the rooms are always a bit too warm for our taste.

This is the second time we've stayed at The Covent Garden and I can honestly say we cannot fault it in anyway, you can walk to any attraction within minutes as all the shows are right on the doorstep, on New Years Eve we just popped our heads out of the rooms window to watch the fireworks over the London Eye, great hotel in a great position.

I ended up staying at the Covent Garden hotel on the spur of the moment. I was visiting friends who were staying there and ended up getting a room at the last minute instead of travelling back to Oxfordshire.

I was glad I did as the whole experience is on a par with anything I have ever had in my travels. The most pleasing thing was being referred to by name by the doorman despite not being introduced. Probably a clear benefit if staying at a small, first class hotel.

The rooms were perfect in size, cleanliness and facilities. Food was fairly expensive but as expected for central London. It was very good quality though. The afternoon tea is a hefty attack of cakes and sandwiches.

All in all the hotel was fabulous and I will certainly treat myself again some time soon

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great

I love the ecclectic but luxurious decor at Firmdale Hotels. The Covent Garden is what a British luxury boutique hotel should be. The rooms are far more spacious than most in London. The baths are all granite and beautiful. The fitness center is great. And the service is excellent. Add the fun location on a street that looks like a London movie set, and this is one great place to stay.

I've always stayed in Kensington on my previous visits to London. This time after being persuaded by the TA reviews we decided on CGH. What a choice, the location is absolutely fabulous, so handy for everything, shops, restaurants, museums, theatres, the piazza too!

The hotel is true understated English elegance, adored the Drawing Room & Honesty Bar. Our room - 112 - was the best I've ever had in London. Large, quiet, beautiful bed, everything so truly lovely. We'll be back in Covent Garden at The Covent Garden Hotel!

My wife and I have just spent our annual weekend in London and for the third year stayed in this hotel. It continues to be excellent - rooms in first class condition, staff very friendly and helpful and great location. Will definitely return.

One word to the management (and I mentioned this on checking out). At these room rates, internet access should be complimentary. It is very irritating to spend over Pds1,000 per night for suite accommodation and then pay up to Pds20 per day for the internet (which is itself expensive. To the extent that I pay anywhere, it is usually no more than US$20 per day and most 5 star hotels give complimentary access if staying in a superior room or a suite).

Stayed November 2011, travelled with family

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Covent Garden Hotel opened in April 1996 but the building dates back to the 1890’s when it operated as a French hospital. It is located in Monmouth Street, a charming cobbled street in the heart of the theatre district and surrounded by interesting boutiques, restaurants, cafes and bars. Covent Garden Hotel is "a quirky modern take on traditional English style." The hotel's interior has been dramatically designed by owner and design director Kit Kemp, and reflects her personal attention to detail. The ground floor is just like a stage set. A quietly bustling lobby leads into Brasserie Max, the hotel’s bar and restaurant. Up a sweeping stone staircase and into a sumptuous wood paneled drawing room and library, each with a log burning fireplace, quirky furniture and vivid upholstery. Downstairs there is a gym, private event space and a screening room. ... more   less
