The excellent location – in the heart of London’s theatre district – and tucked-away screening room of this Firmdale hotel ensure that it continues to attract starry customers, with anyone needing a bit of privacy able to retreat upstairs to the lovely panelled private library and drawing room.

In the guest-rooms, Kit Kemp’s distinctive style mixes pinstriped wallpaper, pristine white quilts and floral upholstery with bold, contemporary elements; each room is unique, but each has the Kemp trademark upholstered mannequin and granite and oak bathroom. On the ground floor, the 1920s Paris-style Brasserie Max and the retro zinc bar retain their buzz – outdoor tables give a perfect viewpoint on Covent Garden boutique life in summer.

    ‘If I loved you less,’ Jane Austen famously wrote in ‘Emma’, ‘I might be able to talk about it more.’ Judging from the non-stop chat in Whit Stillman’s witty, winning comedy based on Austen’s novel ‘Lady Susan’, love is barely on the minds of its ...

Great hotel, is there one in the group that is not. Staff always attentive, the restaurant and bar are a great place relax and spend time with friends. The bar staff can sort any cocktail you might want. Always feel like you have been away even if just popping in.

Haven't stayed in the hotel but the bar is a great place to go to avoid the crowds in Covent Garden proper. You'll pay more for drink here than in neighbouring bars and pubs, but sometimes it's worth the extra to go somewhere you can have a conversation and a seat while still in a buzzy location. Sometimes the staff feel a little too keen to keep pouring the wine if you order a bottle, but generally, the service is great and the cocktail list worth exploring.

I was booked in this hotel and had no expectations. When I arrived late in the evening having crossed all London to get to the buzzing area of Covent Garden, they were expecting me. Nice front desk and a great restaurant by the lobby. My room, small, was nicely appointed. Bathroom specially nice and modern touches throughout the room. Good bed. A 60-inch ultra thin TV on the wall was a highlight. 

The restaurant is very good too, and the Staff is superb and friendly. Breakfast -included- had both a buffet and a la carte menu. And what are the chances to meet someone from your home city working there? Location is perfect, right in the center of all things. You can walk everywhere.
