“The best location in London”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Just returned from a five night stay here with a friend. We got a reasonable price online for two single rooms via the hotels own website. We got a better discount due to having rooms with no view ie with scaffolding in front of the window. It was no problem as I didnt go to London to look out the window!! I was in room 111 and there was ALOT of noise from building work next door. Some nights it went on until 10pm and later and started very early in the morning. I didnt get much sleep but it didnt bother me too much. My friend was in room 470. She had a room to the front and also she had traffic noise but it wasnt as bad as the building noise. If your a light sleeper this hotel may not suit. The location is super, 5 minutes from Leicester square, right in covent garden and 5 minutes to two tube stations. It was 15 minutes from Oxford street and loads of bars and restaurants including a gorgeous wagamamas around the corner. The hotel lobby is perhaps a tad faded but the rooms were a very good standard. My single room had a single bed and was small enough but it had everything including a tv with a good amount of channels, a tea/coffee service, bottled water daily, a good room service choice, nice big towels and spotless room. The bathroom was perfectly functional, new, clean spacious, just enough for one person.Breakfast is well worth it. One of the best Ive had with a great buffet choice. There were ques out the door some mornings which was a pain and the staff were a bit sharp on a few occasions with customers. I observed a dark haired lady who I think was a manager snap at guests very rudely a few times. Not acceptable. The check in also was a chore. The eastern european girl who checked us in was perfunctuary and cold. Incidently an english girl checked us out and was lovely. I guess its hit and miss. The door men were unfailingly good humoured and helpful. I have stayed in another hotel in Earls Court (Ive reviewed that also) and the rates were comparable but this hotel was SO much better in terms of location and amenities. I would highly recommend it and will return next time, I dont think I would stay any where else in London now! Its right opposite the Savoy and beside a couple of theatres so will return for a theatre break soon. We didnt eat in the restaurant but the bar is very nice with very good quality food and drinks. Another bonus is the free wi fi. I never had a problem with the connection. Its really so essential nowadays. All in all I was exceptionally impressed with this hotel. Dont hesitate to book.

Room Tip: VERY noisy at front from traffic and at side from building work so bear this in mind when requesting...

We stayed for a weekend in February 2013 and were given room 849. Our "deal" included a club room, travelcard for each day of our stay and breakfast. Room 849 was very small and only had a double bed. However it was clean had all of the "usual" facilities .. tea/coffee, tv, hairdrier, toiletries, safe etc. The only fault was that that the room smelt of food so I guess it must have been near the kitchen, food could be smelt as you went along the corridor. The staff were very friendly and efficient. There is no view from this room.
Generally the hotel corridors although clean were a little drab and could have been lightened up a bit.
Breakfast was good with a plentiful supply of fresh produce. Tables are a little cramped and quite close together in the dining room and there was a large queue each day over the weekend. Monday morning .. no queue though!
The hotel is in an ideal place for touring London with easy access to Covent Garden and several tube stations.
We would certainly return to this hotel but would choose a different room.

Room Tip: Choose an executive room as its larger and from the photos on their site looks much plusher than the...

Spent two nights at the Strand Palace on a business trip. Central location with plenty of places to eat close by. Reception well organised - check-in and check-out, very nice breakfast. I found single rooms are hard to find in the heart of London and was quite happy with the room I had.

I stayed here for 2 days from Friday 22/02/2013 - on arrival (quite early) I was told by a pleasant member of the reception team that my room was ready, got my key without a fuss and weht to my room on the 5th floor. The room was clean and modern and I was travelling on my on - totally adequate.

Breakfast was really good with a big selection of well prepared food. Location of the hotel is superb with direct access to Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Soho/Oxford Street.

Can happily recommend this hotel

I stayed here last weekend on a good deal through the hotel's own website. As I didn't plan to be in the room much, I chose a single room without a view for cheapness, which came with a 2-day travel card. When I checked in I was surprised to hear the couple next to me booking in for one night B and B for a greater amount than I had paid for 2 nights, although without breakfast. So check out the prices first. The room was small but recently refurbished and perfectly adequate; it was quiet too although on the first floor. The bathroom was also refurbished with a double sized shower cubicle - thoughtful! There's tea/coffee/biscuits which is nice and hairdryer; makes packing lighter! The check-in staff are quick, pleasant and efficient and the room was clean and well serviced. The stairs are much quicker than the lift if you are on low floors. We used the bars both nights briefly; the larger lounge bar is lacking in atmosphere, feeling like an over-lit common room but the smaller Mask Bar is pleasant and intimate. Didn't use the restaurants but they seemed to offer good value. The hotel is 2 minutes walk from Covent Garden and an easy stroll to most central areas. The Covent Garden tube is fine if you don't mind the rammed lifts! The Piccadilly Line is useful and makes getting around easy. We used the bus one night from the Strand and that worked well; lots of different busses use that route. All in all, a no-frills but perfectly comfortable room in a nicely decorated hotel with efficient staff in a central location - can't get better than that, and I'll be back.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front will be noisy, especially on low floors.

My wife and I stayed at the Strand Palace again this past weekend .
Excellent location .Easy , friendly check in with the room ready early .
Our room was very good , clean , everything worked , plenty storage and seating etc.
Only problem was that the bathroom although otherwise good had only a heated towel rail and no radiator and because of the cold weather this room was very cold all weekend .
Dining rooms were of a good standard with reasonable selection of food and OK service .
However it is a large and busy hotel and there is often quite a queue for breakfast .
All in all bearing in mind the excellent location the hotel we feel is very good value for money .

Room Tip: Centre of the building helps if you want a quiet room

Great area if you love to walk. Near Covent Garden, The City, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square.
The hotel, a large one, is the most efficiently run hotel I have ever experienced. From the registration desk, the concierges (3), the wait staff, the housekeeping staff--all superb!!!
I had two twin rooms; small but very accommodating. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms very user friendly and modern.
Loved the breakfasts and the bar at night.
You won't be disappointed!!
