Fantastic mother daughter trip to london
Attention to detail was great, hotel so clean. All staff so friendly, amazing man on the front meeting and greeting, and another man that ran and flagged a taxi down for us. Really appreciate the staff in the hotel, and the band downstairs was fantastic and really unexpected

8/10 Very good

Wonderful staff
Very nice hotel. Wonderful staff. Very good breakfast. The only negative point is, if you choose a street superior room, it’s the noise in the street until 3 o’clock in the morning Wednesday to Saterday.

Best Hotel Ever
I can't say enough great and wonderful things about Middle Eight hotel! It's been many years since I've been to London, and had forgotten where the best or most interesting places in the city to stay was. I knew I wanted to see a play or two, so I chose the Covent Garden area. The hotel had some good reviews and I just took a risk and booked a 3 night stay. Honestly, I could stay here for weeks on end! I booked a smaller room to fit my budget, but it was so well appointed and styled. Every hotel should take note on how they make the space work! I really loved the bathroom and shower. The staff was also was just top notch. Everyone was fantastic and so helpful and prompt. They were always right there for me and took care of everything so promptly. I would love to stay at this hotel again whenever I come back to London. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

Great gem in the city.
Awesome property! I normally stay near London wall, but the place I stay was sold out, so this was definitely a runner-up, not my first choice at all. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! The building exterior is elegant and regal. The interior is next level contemporary and stylish. The staff were all friendly and accommodating. This was the best "rebound" property I could've chosen. So much better than my preferred property by virtue of location alone. I was able to walk to most places even with the HEAT WAVE! I'll be staying at this property for sure moving forward. Bravo.
