Seven Dials Hotel, Covent Garden, London

This is listed in RS London guide book. Stayed Feb 2022.
It is a basic hotel with a fantastic location.
I was surprised that it has a functioning modern lift.
Room was small but adequate.
Very good Italian restaurant right next door.
Good breakfast place a block away.

how was the night-time noise at Seven Dials?

I was on the top floor, and stayed during the week.
I didn't have a problem sleeping. The location is away from the pubs, toward Shaftesbury Avenue.
The price I paid was very low, possibly because I booked early, when it was still unknown whether things would open up.

How funny-I just did a search of London value-hotels for a friend and among the three finalists was the Seven Dials Hotel! That raised the question as to how it came to be named the Seven Dials.

Just booked for November. The location looks great and it seems that the room has all I need.

Looks like a real possibility for non-summer trips. There's no air conditioning.

Edit: See kutchek's post immediately below, reporting having a room with a/c.

Our family just stayed at this hotel August 10-15, 2022. Great location, easy walking distance (10-15 minutes) to Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, The British Museum, many shops, restaurants, etc. We stayed in a quad room (1 double+ 2 twin beds) on the 3rd floor, which was very basic, but adequate. Very small bathroom, but it served it's purpose. We did have AC, thankfully, as it was quite hot that week. Our room did not face the street, so we had no street noise. Bonus, the incredibly cute Neal's Yard is literally just a few steps away. Starbucks is right there, for a quick sugar filled coffee in the morning. There is also a little shop, which sells drinks & snacks a few stores down; we bought plenty of water from that place.

Six streets converge on a point, and I think there is a clock there.

Actually, seven streets converge.

kutchek, next time skip Starbucks and try Monmouth Coffee instead; they have great coffee.

The above posting by "lawes" is spam. The link has nothing to do with the Seven Dials hotel. Reported.

Keatinglyn, you mention a good breakfast place a block away. Does it have non-sweet food available? For many people, a "good breakfast" is a sweet roll and coffee.

I notice on the Seven Dials website that breakfast is not included; is it available at the hotel for an extra fee? The prices for rooms are certainly attractive.

Jane,
I had eggs, beans, etc. - a full English breakfast. No kippers.
I visited during Covid, but I am not sure whether they have breakfast facilities. With eating places so close, I doubt they could compete.
I was shocked at the quality of the facilities, given the price. When I stayed there, prices were even lower, because of low tourist volumes.

Thank you, keatinglyn. We're planning a few days in London in February before a Rick Steves tour, so I'm hotel shopping. Thank you!
