“Fantastic”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We stayed in the Fielding Apartment, which is next to the Fielding Hotel from 23 Sept till 30 sept. We took a 4 persons apartment which is located on the ground floor.

Location
We love the location, less than 5 minutes walk from Covent Garden Station. Plenty of activities within 10 to 20 minutes walk.

Room
One room with two sofa sets that can be used as bed. Full kitchen facilities with a dinning table for 6 persons. Separate toilet and bath.

Price
Reasonable considering the location.

As we will be visiting London again from 31 Dec onwards, we were disappointed that it was fully booked.

I have been lucky enough to travel to London and have stayed in an array of places. The Fielding has just become my favorite. It has been on my radar for some time, but is always booked, and that should tell you something. The location cannot be beat. Though Covent Garden is more expensive, this hotel is reasonable compared to many. It has the advantage of being just a couple of blocks from the Covent Garden Tube station on the Piccadilly line which means no transfers on the tube from Heathrow. Our room was of nice size, clean, pretty, and it had everything - window, AC, fan, hairdryer, tea setup, nice lighting, private bath, outstanding shower, nice toiletries, enough towels, vanity area with desk, full length mirror, enough room for luggage, alarm clock, phone, tv, free wifi. You can borrow an iron and board, store your luggage securely, lock your passport up in their safe and even take a shower before check in. The staff is superb, especially Grace. They are always friendly and helpful and nothing seems to be a bother for them. The desk is manned 24 hours and you leave your key with them. There is a bit of street noise (it is Covent Garden, after all) which was remedied by shutting the window. It was warm in the room so we took out the fan. Then, we discovered the air conditioning! No breakfast but there are plenty of inexpensive good places nearby. We didn't appreciate their fancy neck pillows but found suitable alternative in the closet with the extra bedding. Only problem is no lift, and is not really a problem, just a chore. We rarely heard the neighboring rooms, usually only the doors once in a while. I can't wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a lower floor if steps are difficult for you. No lift.

The Fielding was a great choice for our 3 night stay in London.

Positives:
1. Perfect location - close to Covet Garden, within walking distance of the sites we wanted to visit.
2. The bed was extremely comfortable.
3.The staff were very accommodating and friendly.
4. Spotlessly clean.

There are a few negatives:
1. No elevator and we were on the top floor.
2. You can hear everything - when your neighbors come/go/sneeze - really.
3. The rooms are very, very tight. We had no where to store our luggage - there wasn't even a bureau we could put a few outfits in so we were constantly juggling our luggage on the bed. The bed took up the entire room. Just enough room to barely open the bathroom door. Ironically, the bathroom was quite large and beautifully remodeled.

Overall, we did enjoy our stay at the Fielding. I wish it was a tad larger and a bit more quiet but we would recommend friends and family to stay without hesitation.

Stayed one night. Location is perfect in every sense. A 3 minute jaunt from the covent garden tube stop on the Piccadilly line straight from Heathrow. Opposite the royal Opera House so an ideal base for visitors attending performances there, also within easy walking distance to all the West End theatres. Surprisingly for its location it's very quiet .
Rooms on the small side but compact, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Air con and free wifi included. Complimentary bottles water and coffee tea making facilities . No breakfast included but one is spoilt for choice with so many breakfast options close by, whether its Patisserie Valerie, Pret a Manger or even Marks and Spencer's which takes tie fancy . Would definitely stay again.

Have just returned from a one night stay with eleven friends and can honestly say this was the perfect hotel for us. Nearly booked a large chain hotel which suddenly put their prices up and happily stumbled across this absolute gem! In the heart of Covent Garden we couldn't have wished for a better location with every possible amenity on the doorstep. The rooms are all lovely with comfy beds, great showers and everything you need and more for the price we paid and it was so quiet. But the best thing about this hotel is the staff. Made my booking of five rooms with Grace and everything we needed was catered for and more, cars booked, extra beds made up, nothing too much trouble and you don't get that with large corporate hotels. And then there was Sam who was front of house on our visit. You could not wish to be greeted by a more lovely lady and again nothing too much trouble. All of us said we would stay here again and I personally cannot wait to return.

It gets so much right but there are a number of flaws. This is not a quiet hotel. Not even a little bit. There is a pub close by and the noise was audible every night. I had earplugs so this didn't bother me too much. The air con unit was a strange one. Worked a treat but was the loudest unit I've ever come across. Even off, it was prone to producing loud noises during the night. Again, i had ear plugs - cannot stress enough how helpful these were. The cupboard in the room (single room, 3rd floor) was a touch musty smelling but I just left the door open to keep it aired out, the walls really could have done with a paint and the carpets were a bit stained. Despite these negatives, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was comfortable in a bashed little way, it was clean and there were so many nice touches (slippers, sleep mask, mineral waters, loads of coffees, biscuits, shampoos, soaps, even toothbrushes and toothpastes, extra pillows - memory foam & regular fluffy - and extra towels). The staff was lovely, particularly the female members. Everyone had a smile for me and that goes a very long way, especially in London. They looked after my computer for me when i was out and about. The location was absolutely perfect and the price was great. I always end up feeling ripped off in London and this certainly did not happen this time. I think I would stay again if i was on my own like this time but I think if I was with my husband, I'd want something slightly spiffier.

We stayed at the hotel on the 9th September 2013 for one night, we booked a double room on the ground floor at the rear of the hotel.

Excellent - Location! 3-4 minute walk from Covent Garden tube, theatre's, restaurants etc! Shower facilities.

Very Good - Room size was more than expected, very comfortable bed. We were greeted by a very lovely owner and her staff were also very helpful could not fault them at all.

If I have to be picky the wardrobes need some investment and in places the carpets are a little bare however for the price, location, staff and shower facilities this far out weighs the small cons! Also rooms have decent size flat screen LCD TV, air con, tea and coffee making facilities etc.

Would without a doubt come back to the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 4 so ask for that.
