Good Hotel Guide Review

For all the bustle of surrounding Covent Garden, this ‘simple, well-located’ small hotel down the lane from the Royal Opera House is ‘remarkably quiet’. It is named after Henry Fielding, the novelist and one-time local magistrate who worked at the former courts next door. Down narrow corridors, recently refurbished bedrooms are smart but modest, with ‘all the necessities’: a comfortable bed and a clean, well-designed bathroom; ‘excellent lighting’; bottled water, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Slippers and an eye mask are nice touches. Breakfast isn’t served, but many reliable options are nearby – the ‘helpful staff’ have recommendations to offer. ‘Good value for its position.’ (Underground: Covent Garden)

Guest comments

'This charming house, in a traffic-free lane opposite the Royal Opera House, is a delightful retreat for opera fans. The welcoming ambience includes flowering plants outside and fairy-lights at night. Superb photographs of ballet adorn the walls. Our bedroom, with plenty of storage space, was equipped with everything one could need, including air- conditioning, slippers and black eye-shades. Wi-Fi is complimentary. The bathroom had a large shower cubicle, plus simple but high quality toiletries. Our room was on the second floor and we enjoyed a quiet and comfortable night. No lift, no bar and no food served here, but there is a list of recommendations of places to eat nearby, one of which serves breakfast from 7am. ' - Penelope Visman - April, 2013
'Excellent central location in quiet pedestrianised street. Comfortable, well modernised, clean, tidy and friendly. Staircases due for renovation shortly. A wide choice of restaurants and cafes within a short distance. The most peaceful night we have ever had in London. ' - Richard James - November, 2012
'A elightful, comfortable and amazingly quiet oasis in a traffic-free street, a couple of hundred yards from the Royal Opera House... the perfect complement to a night at the opera. ' - Matthew Caminer - June, 2012
