I stayed here for business purposes last year. It was amazing! I really love the idea of having your own little apartment rather than staying in a hotel. The lobby of Citadines was really smart and had a great feel to it. Reception staff were very friendly. The apartment itself was large with a double bedroom, toilet, bathroom, living area and small kitchen. Everything was very comfy, clean and well kept. There was a TV and DVD player and the kitchen was fully stocked with all crockery and utensils. The apartements are ideally located on High Holborn, just opposite from the tube station with plenty of shops and restaurants around. It's a really nice area. Also available is room service - there's a menu in the apartment and you ring a central number, choosing food from a wide range of restaurants across London. It's then delivered to your door.
Great value and I would recommend this Citadines to anyone.
If anyone qualifies to review this hotel, it's me. I stayed at the Citadines Apart-Hotel Holborn/Covent Garden for 6 weeks while studying abroad in London one summer not too long ago.
It's very affordable, and it's right in the center of things. Walking distance to Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus and countless pubs and restaurants, it wasn't the most luxurious, but I was happy where I was.
Rooms are cleaned weekly. Breakfast out for you to grab each morning until 9AM. I hardly ever made that...did I mention London has a great pub/club/nightlife scene? When I did drag myself out of bed, they had eggs to boil, bread to toast and chocolate croissants to devour. And there was coffee. Essential.
It's also literally right next door to Pizza Express. A London staple (at least for me while there).
I wouldn't recommend staying here as long as I did, but it was pre-arranged through my university and was definitely good enough.
My only real problem with the place came on my final night there. My flight back to San Francisco was canceled due to terrorists plotting to blow it (and several others) up over the Atlantic. [Yes, the reason you can no longer fly with large amounts of liquid, gel, etc.] Suffice it to say, the front desk staff found me an available room for two extra (unplanned) nights, but were incredibly rude about it when I was obviously a little freaked out.
Assuming terrorists don't strike, I'd definitely recommend this Apart-Hotel.
Citadines Holborn-Covent garden is a very convenient hotel.
Very well located, just 2-3minutes of walk to holborn subway.
