    The Mercer Street, one of the best-located hotels in London, has re-opened in Covent Garden after a £15million pound refurbishment. Formerly called The Mountbatten, The Mercer Street is located at the heart of avant-garde Seven Dials Village and is a chic retreat just seconds away from some of the best shopping, restaurants and theatres that London has to offer – making it easy for business and leisure travellers to enjoy the capital.

    The ultra-modern Mercer Street, part of the Radisson Edwardian hotels group, offers incredible added value, with 137 new bedrooms and bathrooms, the most up-to-date Apple TV technology in every room, free WiFi and even other benefits such as free printing for guests, enabling those travellers working in London to do business easily.

    Eight sumptuous suites have great views over Seven Dials, walk-in showers in their large bathrooms, and dressing rooms complete with an enormous Union-Jack painted SMEG fridge – perfect for keeping that bottle of champagne nicely chilled.

    For meetings, events and conferences, there are six meeting rooms capable of hosting 6-50 people and equipped with the latest HD and touch-screen technology. Quirky features also include Japanese-style “Bento Boxes”, served at lunchtime to delegates. There is also a fitness room for those wanting to work off a few pounds.

    The heart of the hotel features Dial – a modern bar and restaurant perfect for pre-theatre dining and post-theatre drinking. Dial serves modern European dishes with market-fresh British produce, while the fragrant spices of the bar’s meze menu hint at the old Covent Garden Market’s more exotic wares.

    The Mercer Street is also a partner of Visit Britain and The Donmar Warehouse, enabling guests to combine a great stay with great theatre on the doorstep in Seven Dials.
