Located in the bustling Theater district in London’s Covent Garden, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring evolution on English luxury. This boutique hotel retains all the youthful, unexpected charm of a London hideaway, at the very heart of the art-loving, energetic West End.
St Martins Lane is truly a hidden gem – a newly renovated lobby welcomes guests into high-concept design with the sophistication of a modern museum and the joy of a carnival light show. The soaring and theatrical space, a reinterpretation of Philippe Starck’s original lobby, plays with color, proportion, and movement in a way that energizes every guest and inspires active self-expression for the duration of the stay.
Guests can begin their journey in the Den, a modern gathering place and decompression zone. Situated just off the lobby, the Den is the perfect place to sip a cup of tea or play a game of backgammon. The décor is warm and sophisticated with a tongue-in-cheek British flair – even the art on the walls is irreverent, animating the space with larger-than-life portraits and visual puns. Take in the scene and enjoy light snacks and champagne with friends before embarking into the heart of London. Embrace the journey with a striking new look from London’s finest hairdressers at the neighboring Jones & Payne salon. Luxurious treatments and innovative vision make this salon a place of new beginnings and creative expression.
At night, guests will find a hidden entrance to Blind Spot, an innovative cocktail bar, behind the tea counter’s posh façade. Blind Spot is a golden cocktail sanctuary designed like a modern hunting lodge and inspired by the colors and aromas of exotic tea leaves.
Light and color continue to enhance the guest experience in every corner of St Martins Lane - interactive light displays brighten each room, transforming them into spaces of youthful excitement and changing mosaics of colour.
Special garden rooms offer private patios and floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the vibrancy of the city into every room. At the newly renovated Asia de Cuba, concept chef Luis Pous joins restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow to offer a dynamic Latin-Asian fusion menu in an inspiring space. Guests can explore all the unpredictable delights of London and end the day with an invigorating workout at Gymbox Covent Garden, London’s most unorthodox fitness experience.
I am a Global Member; this is the reason I continue to stay at this gorgeous hotel in a city full of gorgeous hotels.
This hotel is in the best location for theater, restaurants, shopping and art. We were two couples and had the best time.
Everything was perfect
Great location. Nice hotel. Concierge always has solid recommendations. Good service. Love the room. Everything is modern with a lot of little touches. USB phone charger at the bed, Bluetooth for your music. I've been here 3 or 4 times and will go back!
Currently remodeling. Shower leaked ....
The staff were A1 and very helpful and the manager Jose was very proffesional
Maybe a little too dark in the lift and l could not see the buttons to push
A very modern hotel in a fantastic central location. The room was small but spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
No coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Refused entry to the Light Bar because we hadn't booked - since when did you have to book to have a drink in a bar? This also meant we couldn't actually use the vouchers for the complimentary cocktails!
A different experience. The staff greeted me by my first name which I like a lot. Interior design is cool, I loved candles in the bathroom.
Couldn't log on to the Internet with my iPad although I was charged the Internet service - which was advertised as free upon booking :-(
Design, city center location and friendly professional staff
Internet connection ( slow ), airco on rooms did not work well
