“Terrific location in London”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

The location of this hotel is perfect. Right in the centre of everything. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and offer everything you could need (even if they are fairly small). We couldn’t fault this hotel given the location and price. It's exactly what you want if you're only in London for a few days and want to see all the major sites.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stayed at the Strand Palace fopr 3 days in July and found the hotel to be ideally located. Friendly staff and great selection of gins in the bar. On the down side, it is rare nowadays to stay in a 4* hotel without air conditioning. And with scorching temperatures in London that week, night were a bit uncomfortable.

Dear Guest,

We do appreciate your comments regarding your recent visit.
We do have airconditioning available in a few of our bedrooms which can be booked online or direct with our Reservations Team - these rooms do tend to be booked quite quickly though.

Sure it is a nice enough place on a great location. However for 200 euro it is over priced. A breakfast room without sunlight, no airco in the room, no fridge or minibar, no street view etc. Staff is friendly and at 140 or so it would be fine.

Staying while doing a course in C Garden, the staff were extremely friendly in particular the staff in the executive dining room who made me feel very welcome every morning, location was perfect, even just for a leisurely stroll in the evening. I would definitely recommend The Strand Palace hotel and hope to return very soon.

The Strand Palace is well worth the money and in an excellent location just off Convent Garden. You are within minutes of nearly all the attractions. Our room was lovely and comfortable with everything in it we needed. If there is any downfall it is that the room didn't have air condtioning and being on the Strand meant we were unable to have the windows open at night because of the noise. Would never stay anywhere else if visiting the Smoke....

Fabulous central location with easy walking to many attractions, easy access to buses, tubes and trains.

Hotel itself has several bars and eating places, great staff, wonderful service. And a really powerful shower.

For me, for the price, thee is nowhere better to stay in central London.

An excellent hotel. Very welcoming, staff very friendly and helpful. The standard rooms are very comfortable. Breakfasts very good, plenty to choose from. It was so easy to get to the theatre from here and also other attractions not far to walk at all. We will definitely go to this hotel again.

Room Tip: In summer you can pay a little extra to get air conditioning
