London is a vast city, of course, but in terms of finding a base in the thick of it that is ideally located for all the best sights and sounds that our capital city has to offer, you’re unlikely to find many better options than that of this stunning Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel on Mercer Street in the Seven Dials / Covent Garden area of the city. As you probably expect from the name, it’s located in a historic Edwardian building and, you’ll be pleased to hear, it’s outward beauty is more than matched by it’s interior charm.
Nestled in one of London’s most iconic neighbourhoods and with the Seven Dials roundabout literally on the hotel’s doorstep, you couldn’t wish for a more perfect location when staying in London because there are such an abundance of bars, cafes, restaurants, shops, shows and much more besides right outside this magical hotel’s front door. Distinctly traditional aesthetically from the outside, the Radisson Blu Edwardian on Mercer Street has a much more modern and contemporary interior and you’ll find yourself in lap of luxury and may not be able to tear yourself away from the hotel to enjoy all the sights and sounds that await right outside your hotel room.
We’ve been lucky enough to stay in a couple of Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotels here at Coolector HQ and this one on Mercer Street is right up there with the best of them in both location and quality of stay and we’d certainly recommend it to anyone looking for the ideal spot to explore everything that London has to offer.
Room With A View
We were delighted to discover that we’d been afforded a suite at this gloriously comfortable and stylish hotel on the property’s top floor which delivered some mighty impressive views out across London – especially as the room in question was triple-aspect and offered views in almost every direction imaginable. The Radisson Blu Edwardian on Mercer Street has 137 air-conditioned bedrooms and eight out of this world suites, all of which bring comfort and style together in some considerable style.
Mod-cons and neat design features were the call of the day throughout our immaculate suite at Mercer Street and the long entrance hallway to the room gave way to a generally appointed bedroom / living area which was made all the more impressive by the views that surrounded it. The luxury suites overlook the trendy and buzzing Seven Dials district of London and boast stunning marble bathrooms filled with excellent toiletries and amenities.
The aforementioned triple aspect windows are responsible for providing a serene, effortlessly stylish environment to relax and unwind in after a day of exploring all the awesomeness that the surrounding area has to offer. The suites also have a separate dressing area in the unlikely event that the cavernous bedroom / living space isn’t sufficient for getting ready to go out. With a great array of neat little features such as luxury bath products and bathrobes, a Nespresso machine and a mini-fridge, this really will feel like a home away from home the minute you check in.
Location, Location, Location
So far as being in the heart of the action in London, it doesn’t get much better than the Covent Garden / Seven Dials area in which this fantastic Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel is to be found. Most places you’re likely to want to visit during a stay in the city are in walking distance and, if not, there are an abundance of tube stations a stone’s throw from the hotel’s doorstep which are ready and waiting to whisk you across town to your desired location.
Whilst there are some fantastic restaurants and bars surrounding this cracking hotel, you may not need to leave at all because it has it’s very own high class restaurant and bar called Monmouth Kitchen. This wonderful spot evokes an ambience that aims to recreate the culinary delights of the Mediterranean and South America, and offers diners a modern choice of Italian and Peruvian small plates all of which are complimented with the best wines and an amazing signature cocktails menu.
Great food and drink combine with a superb location and luxuriously appointed rooms to make this one of our favourite hotels to date in London and we’ve no hesitation at all in recommending the Radisson Blu Edwardian on Mercer Street to anyone who really wants to experience the best of London from a phenomenal base in the epicentre of the action.
