My sister and I have stayed here before and this is definitely our hotel of choice for many reasons. The friendly, helpful and smiley service makes you feel incredibly welcomed . Loved the little touch of a ‘welcome back’ card.The cleanliness, the location…just perfect. Looking forward to our next visit in February with some friends to celebrate some special Birthdays and many more visits to come. Thank you to the whole Covent Garden Resident team. See you soon 🤗
This was our first trip to London, so we wanted to pick a hotel that would be centrally-located so we didn't spend hours every day just commuting to our destinations. The location for The Resident Covent Garden turned out to be absolutely perfect! There are multiple tube stations within a short walk, hundreds of restaurants and shops, and if you want to see a show it's right in the theatre district. In terms of food, I should add that you can choose anything from quick takeaway bites like kebabs, fast casual establishments, all the way up to Michelin-starred establishments. You could also choose from Italian, Greek, Asian, British, French, Jamaican, Turkish, and just about anything else you can think of. Should you happen to have forgotten anything essential at home, there are also multiple stores nearby (Boots, Tesco Express, Superdrug, Sainsbury Local), which was great since we had our 8-year old son with us. As far as the hotel itself, we found our room very spacious (especially by European standards), and the built-in USB chargers were helpful (we brought enough adapters with us but some people may not). The Nespresso machine and mini-fridge was a lifesaver, as I really need my morning coffee with real milk to get going. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were on the fifth floor and it was so quiet you would have never guessed that we were in such a busy area of central London. There are only two minor nitpicks I can think of. The first is that the doors for the kitchenette didn't shut properly, so the light remained on (it turns off when the doors are closed). We engineered a DIY solution and in fairness we never mentioned it to the staff. The second thing was a few days while we were out, we indicated on our door that we were not in our room. Despite that our room was not serviced that day. For us it didn't matter because we simply reused our towels and any toiletries were supplied promptly upon asking. But some guests may have disliked being skipped for a housekeeping visit. Overall we were extremely happy with this hotel. We were there for 10 days and after a long day visiting museums and seeing sights, it really felt like a nice, comfortable place to retire for the evening. When we return to London this place will be right at the top of our list!…
hotel with perfect location. very helpfull and friendly staff very good room with everything you need. Next time we return to London, we will definitely choose this hotel again. certainly one of the best hotels in London
The Resident Hotel Covent Garden Smith Party 22nd >26th November 2022 Rm 502. Firstly the welcome on arrival was excellent. Helpful & accommodating. Room fab everything you could possibly need (its like the Tesla of hotel rooms. Spotlessly cleaned ..daily with some nice touches. Great security within hotel. Lift to all floors. Best of all the front of house staff are the best as are the staff who service the rooms. Attentional to detail second to none. Will be back. Location is great and will improve once road works in area completed.
The Resident Hotel is ideally located just off the Strand and within very close proximity of Covent Garden. On arrival the staff were friendly and attentive. Our room was absolutely perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linen crisp and nicely laundered. The bath room was clean and modern, with the most amazing rainfall shower I’ve ever experienced. Complimentary Molton Brown body wash, shampoo and conditioner was a very nice touch along with lovely fluffy towels kept on the heated towel rail. The room also had a small Kitchen tucked away inside a discreet cupboard. There was a sink, with Brita filter drinking water, kettle, microwave, fridge, cutlery, plates and glasses. The staff really do make this hotel extra special. Thank you for looking after us.…
The service at the Resident was fantastic. It was our first trip to London and the location of the hotel was incredibly convenient. It's an easy walk to many different underground stops so we got everywhere we need to go quickly. Not to mention the hundreds of restaurants within walking distance to the hotel
Been visiting London for many years and this is by far the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in. The trip was part of my wife’s birthday celebration and I’d let the hotel know before arriving. She received a lovely card, a bottle of wine and some chocolate as well as a room upgrade. Location can’t be beaten, staff all wonderful Will definitely return and recommend
I had to stay in central London for work and decided to bring my partner who had just returned from out of town. I was expected something simple and lowkey and was actually moved by how special the vibe in the hotel is. The simplicity is deceptive - our room was super generously designed, had a full mini kitchenette and balcony. Also - MOLTON BROWN PRODUCTS IN THE BATHROOM YES PLEASE. We arrived around 6:30pm and were offered prosecco which i guess was the end of a regular evening tradition where they serve complimentary drinks??? When we got into the room the staff had left us a beautiful handwritten and HAND DRAWN welcome card and a bottle of wine, and the staff at check in were incredibly personable and attentive. I was offered a wakeup call and my partner was brought breakfast as he was sleeping in. It was one night with an early bed time but somehow we had the feeling we had a whole long weekend there. It was absolutely silent in the room even though when you look out the window you're in the centre of Covent Garden. I don't know what hotel magic is being spun here but i had to write a review. If you care about not only having all your comfort, cleanliness, classiness and practicality needs met, but also crave a special environment, thoughtfulness etc, there's something unique happening here and I love it and will be coming back. AND thank you especially, Ife and Susana, who were so lovely to us. <3…
Resident Covent Garden hands down has the best staff in the world! They made me feel welcome the moment I stepped through the door. They helped with directions and info on the Underground. Great help.
We recently stayed her for two nights and were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. the hotel was clean and our room was a good size for 3 of us. the facilities are very good. The hotel was in a great location especially if you want to see a show whilst there. we will definitely stay again the next time we are in London
