self service laundry near Covent Garden?

Hi, we will be staying near Covent Garden in May. Does anyone know of a self service laundry in that area? Thanks a bunch, Sue

I used Yelp.com to find a laundry near my hotel in London. Unfortunately it's not turning up anything in Covent Garden - only dry cleaners. http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc=laundromat&find_loc=london%2C+UK&ns=1&ls=6be704ab87cc8319#find_desc=laundry+services&l=p:XGL:London::Covent_Garden&show_filters=1 You can add nearby neighborhoods by filter and see how close you can get. It looks like Bloomsbury or Shoho is a better bet. http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc=laundromat&find_loc=london%2C+UK&ns=1&ls=6be704ab87cc8319#find_desc=laundry+services&l=p:XGL:London::%5BBloomsbury,Covent_Garden,Leicester_Square,Soho,Strand%5D&show_filters=1 When I was there I stubbornly tried to do some laundry myself and ended paying for the service which turned out to be only a few pounds more. Given the time to cost ratio I recommend using the laundry service rather than trying to self serve and using that time to see other things. Hope that helps,
