Advantages: Great location, cheap
After a recent weekend trip to London I decided to write about my experience of a stay in Covent Garden's Travel Lodge. We got a great deal for booking the rooms online, £19 a night. The hotel is approximately five minutes walk from Covent Garden tube station and it situated on the outskirts of Covent Garden. As we saw the big Travel Lodge sign we headed towards the reception area. The receptionist was helpful and although we arrived at the hotel a couple of hours before we were allowed to check in at 3pm, we were offered one of the two rooms we had booked to store our bags in for a £10 early fee. As there were 5 of us this only meant £2 each so we took them up on the offer so we could have a walk around the shops luggage free!
We were given the keys and told we were staying in the second building which was across the street and behind the main building. I didn't mind this at all as this building looked a lot newer and more modern. We got the lift up to the third floor and found our room. This was a room for 3 people and inside was a double bed and a double pull out sofa which when pulled out took over most of the room so we left it folded and just put the bedding on top. The room was clean and the bathroom was clean and spacious. We had a TV and kettle with some tea's and coffee's provided. There was also a large vanity mirror with a chair and surface area for getting ready. There were three girls in this room yet we felt we still all had enough room to get ready and were not treading on each others toes.
The only thing bad about the room was that the window was broken, we opened it for some fresh air and it took 3 of us 5 minutes to get it shut again when we decided it would have to stay shut! Also the sofa bed was under the window which at night was very draughty and cold. The view from the window was the side of another building so not one to sit and look out of!
In the room was two large bath towels but we bumped into the lady that was cleaning the rooms and she was more than happy to give us however many more we required which was nice as sometimes hotels can be funny about these things.
Our two friends had a room a few stories higher and their room was also very similar it just had a better view and more natural light as they didn't have a building in the way.
Overall we were very happy with the service we received at the Covent Garden Travel Lodge and I would consider staying there again for my next trip to London as it is in a great location to get to all the main sights of London. You can take a 10 minute walk to Leicester Square or Trafalgar Square from the hotel and the tube station is well within walking distance. There are also a range of nice restaurants and café's nearby and of course some great shops in Covent Garden. There is also a café and restaurant in the hotel but I cannot comment on this as we did not eat there.
I'd recommend this hotel if you are after a basic place to get your head down whilst staying in London.
Summary: Great place to get your head down whilst visiting London
