We are huge fans of Covent Garden Hotel, but stayed here on a recent trip when the Covent Garden was full. The decor is similarly wonderful, and the rooms here might be larger. But -- this is full on Soho -- noisy and overtly sexy rather than discreet.... The bar scene here is loud -- the bar has entrances on both sides of the room, making it a thoroughfare, and is off a street filled with clubs, so this buzz seems purposeful. We were disappointed to find that the library and drawing rooms -- a wonderful exclusive sanctuary for guests at Covent Garden Hotel -- was completely taken over by street traffic; we could not even find a place to sit down on a weeknight - in this hotel, there is really no quiet common spot for guests.

And -- when I went to find cookies at the minibar, I was pretty surprised by the "fun packages" available (I didn't mind, but suffice to say, I dont' think these were at the minibar at Covent Gardens!)

So -- this is a fun, buzzy place, with the same terrific decor and personal service, but for a middle aged couple looking for gentler romance, I would try one of the sister hotels first.

Stayed for about 10 days last August. Excellent location, at a walking distance from Piccadilly and Leicester Sq. but absolutely quiet.
Great decor, cleanness, attentive staff, very comfortable bed. The restaurant was spot on and the breakfast was one of the best I ever had, with plenty of fresh berries!
A must come back.

I stay here pretty frequently. I really wish there was a way to give 4.5 stars. Place is really nice, clean relatively quiet and they work hard to make you feel welcome. Slight issue with quality of service once in a while, little oversights here and there but even they are minor and always resolved with humor and good will. Hotel isn't quite at the world class 5 star level but for central London is pretty great.

Nice gym. Lackluster massage therapists.

Room Tip: Upper floors away from either front or back entrances.

This was our second time staying here for a full week, 8 nights to be exact. The hotel was as great as ever. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, everything was perfect! The staff is top notch, great, friendly, helpful...I can't say enough good things about them. The conceirge guys were so nice and helpful from giving directions, opinions on museums, gettting us a last minute restaurant reservation (calling all over to find us one), car service, and just chatting with us. The room was very nice again. Comfy bed, nice decor, huge sitting area, great big bathroom, robe for use. We had breakfast with our stay and I can't say enough good things about the waiters/managers who go to know us since we were there so long and chatted with us and made us feel so welcome. We loved every minute of our stay there again and we can't wait to go back!! Yes it might be pricey but you get what you pay for and it was well worth it!!

Stayed for a weekend early November 2011. We went to Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club which is just around the corner, and that was really the main reason we chose this hotel. But we will definitely be back. This is now our favourite hotel in London, and we've stayed in plenty. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food was great, the bar was buzzing and exciting. And the room (a junior suite)..... well it was stunning, comfortable, spacious (quite unusual in London). All in all a great experience. Well done!
