We stayed 3 nights over New Year. Having booked as a "Top Secret Hotel "with Last Minute .com where we knew location and star rating prior to booking but not the name of hotel. Well worth the gamble. We arrived an hour early, check in was quick and room was ready. We clearly had an upgrade too, a large room with huge very comfortable bed on 6th floor overlooking main street of Kingsway. Did get noisy outside with police and ambulance sirens but we were here to soak up the New Year atmosphere!
Prices for minibar drinks were fair especially house wine, mixers and confectionary were overpriced.
My husband enjoyed the swimming pool and spa facility
Location was excellent, we were able to walk easily to Covent Garden, Theatres and Oxford Street.
Only negative was hotel breakfast which we sampled only once. Poor selection of food, full English was cooked to order but was disappointing and service was appalling. We had to ask three times for coffee before it finally arrived and had to wait half an hour after ordering for scrambled eggs which were bland, overcooked and unappetising. We did complain once we managed to get staff attention and were only charged for one meal in the end.
After this experience we ate elsewhere for the entire stay. Can thoroughly recommend Chez Gerard Covent Garden for lunch and pre theatre meal, advise booking in advance.
Definitely a good hotel on room only basis.
