Style, comfort and a prime location between The Strand and Covent Garden: The Resident offers all mod-cons accommodation complete with flatscreen TVs, free-flowing WiFi, and handy mini-kitchens with fridges, microwaves, and a kettle.

Add spacious bathrooms complete with Gilchrist and Soames toiletries, and bedrooms with comfy pocket-sprung beds, and it’s all you need to set up an ‘affordable luxury’ base in the centre of the capital.

There’s no restaurant on site but you’re surrounded by some of London’s best dining, drinking and snacking options, plus the hotel has a choice room-service menu of drinks and snacks including a wine selection from Berry Bros and Rudd.

Groceries to stock that sleek little kitchen can be delivered to your room if you really don’t want to step out.

Surrounding area

Set on a comparatively quiet side street between The Strand and Covent Garden, the Royal Opera House, West End theatres and the indie shops of Seven Dials are on your doorstep, while Trafalgar Square, Soho and the Southbank are a short walk away.
