Reviewed 25 December 2013

I was in town for about 24 hours on business and wanted to stay in this neighborhood. Like the others in the group, The Covent Garden is not a big, traditional hotel. It's a little on the funky side, which is part of the charm. I had a nice big room that was on the street but still quiet. After a good breakfast in the morning I was on my way. The bill was a bit stiff, but so is almost every place in London.

Covent Gardens hotel is a pretty well polished 5 star hotel in a very central location - in Soho. The public areas are in classic old world luxury finishes - the sitting room was very well done!

Staff were all friendly and helpful.

Ate breakfast at the restaurant once. Service was adequate and the food was okay, but not spectacular. The fresh juice was very nice.

The room was very small, but similar to other London hotels.

Overall the hotel is quite expensive but offers reasonably good value and a high standard of service, amenity and luxury. Very pleasant stay and I have recommended this hotel to friends.

I went with a couple of friends for drinks and dinner here. Please note we didn't stay in the room - so cannot comment here.

The food was delicious, the wine fantastic and the service impeccable. The atmosphere at the bar was pleasant and relaxed, the perfect way to catch up with friends!

This was my first time here and I'm planning to go back and stay. I definitely recommend!

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend one night at this hotel in December this year as a treat and a base to see a show.
I had stayed at the Cumberland hotel earlier this week for business, it was terrible and I was worried that our weekend treat would be bad too. I am very pleased to say that the convent garden hotel was a real gem. The location is perfect, the staff helpful and attentive and the room luxurious.
This is not a cheap hotel but worth every penny. The shops and theatre district are in the door step but when you are inside the hotel you'd be mistaken for thinking you were in a country hotel.
The breakfast is also great.
If I had to find an issue it would be that the room we had was in the basement and as such had limited natural light, having said this it was managed well with mirrors on the external wall to reduce the closed in feeling.
Treat yourself, it's blissful.

It might sound hyperbolic to say that this hotel is magical, but conjuring of imaginary creatures aside, the Covent Garden Hotel deserves that characterization. I could tell you about the rooms--each is beautifully appointed with its own unique decorative scheme--think plush upholstered sofas and wingback chairs, writing desks, beds to get lost in--and that threaten to turn everybody into a Rip Van Winkle, perfect window dressings and bathrooms that inevitably have a lovely bath in addition to the shower. I mention the bath only because at the CV, the baths--in granite with acquavision T.V., for those so inclined--are particularly remarkable. They don't have the gaudy jets of some tubs for two. No, instead, they are just what a bath in the classical sense should be. Beautiful setting, very deep, great pressure and water that can be very, very, hot or arcticly cold! I go on about the bathtub because it is in a humble way emblematic of this hotel. It is not showy, jsut beautiful and poised to offer exactly what you might want.

Service should also be mentioned. Short of the moon, this hotel will try to procure anything for its guests. Their attention to guest comfort is exemplary, the kind you can find only in the best hotels, and is part of why is it so worthwhile to stay here. Need something printed? The documents will be delivered to your door in minutes. Also, room service should be particularly noted, for it is notable: every need addressed, including the ones you didn't know you had--and the food served is beyond reproach as well. Also, the staff is incredibly discreet about it, but they know everything about the status of your room and your needs. No, they do not enter the room, but (for example) if I ask for Tea in the Drawing Room, my server will ask me if I want to have my room serviced while I do so--because he knows that the Do Not Disturb sign is hanging on the door and I might want fresh towels etc. How this is known is beyond me, but it is not invasive, just part of a quiet commitment to guest comfort.

I could mention the Drawing Room and the Library and the Honesty Bar, all lovely places to spend an hour--or a dinner--but that's best to discover. I love this hotel, from the talented staff and the beautiful rooms to the delicious menu selections and inventive mixed drinks. The only problem is that I have difficulty actually LEAVING the hotel because it is simply so lovely.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, but pay attention to the kind of *size* you need. Also, make sure your heating...

yes, it is a very swish and elegant hotel, but in was pleased i wasn't paying, as the room rate just seems difficult to justify, i've stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world and this was one of the most expensive, with no real reason to justify the price tag, maybe it's just par for the course in london, but i won't be coming back, well, not if i'm paying myself anyway

I reviewed back in June and although I gave a 5-star review, my 'value' star was only 4 - for which I felt mean at the time.

On subsequent visits and two more this week - There is no question that The Covent Garden Hotel is STILL my best bar choice in London - and it deserves the 5* full house.

Yeah sure, five of you drinking cocktails is going to hit the wallet but these are good cocktails - all freshly prepared by excellent staff. Huge acknowledgement to Luke, at the bar, who is unflappable in the busiest and most stressful peak periods - and still manages to share a kind word and a joke.

Love this place for the ambience, food, drinks and of course service. Shame that at some time it's going to nosey up into the top 5 in London - my favourite bar seat at the window might be over subscribed by then.

Room Tip: forget the rooms (which are brilliant) and get yourself seated at the bar by the window.. Have a co...

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
