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.

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.
