Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street and Monmouth Kitchen

Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street and Monmouth Kitchen


London truly is a nightmare when it comes to finding a good hotel. 3 stars is usually an experience which would be just fine elsewhere, whereas in London you truly get what you pay for. In London 3-star hotels are just not an option if you want a somewhat pleasant experience. Enter The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street. It is a 4-star deluxe hotel in cosy Covent Garden’s Seven Dials Village. A village within a city within a city to try to explain the atmosphere of the surrounding area.

The hotel is a  quintessential West End rendezvous which effortlessly blends in with the boutique appeal of its neighbourhood. This is a chic retreat on the doorstep of London’s most celebrated theatres, conveniently located for first timers or experienced visitors to London.

Its beautifully designed rooms are equipped with next-generation technology, ensuring total comfort and convenience. Hip as the streets that surround it and a bar alive with locals, this place feels real, relaxed and rooted in its community. The newly transformed ground floor has become a relaxed, ambient breakout area where you can catch up with some work or sip on a coffee with friends while watching the world go by.

The 7th and top floor of Radisson Blu Edwardian, Mercer Street is home to 8 luxury suites, each individually designed with their own personalities and I had the pleasure of staying in Suite 707 which very much goes with my personality with its crisp, contemporary yet glamourous interiors.

Overlooking fashionable Seven Dials with marble bathrooms and triple aspect windows, the suites provide a calm, glamorous environment to unwind in. What is to be considered the ultimate in luxury, they also include a separate dressing area.

The Radisson Blu Edwardian, Mercer Street also hosts a culinary treat, Monmouth Kitchen, which embraces the art of shared dining right in the heart of Seven Dials. It evokes an ambience to recreate the culinary delights of the Mediterranean and South America.

With a separate entrance to the hotel, Monmouth Kitchen has been thoughtfully refurbished and stands proud as a popular tapas kitchen in its own right.

With a stylish bar area leading through to the main restaurant, the black and white furnishings add to the industrial feel.

Architectural brick partitions cleverly divide the dining areas, without compromising on light or space, and the different table levels create an open feel, with a view onto Covent Garden’s cobbled streets.

Here you can discover a contemporary selection of Italian and Peruvian small plates, complemented with the nest wines and their signature cocktails, which are a must have, with ingredients that even our seasoned gourmands had not encountered before.

    Dear ( My) Tommy,
    This was completely a pleasure to read! Such a lovely way to relax, dream and plan this evening. I’m completely captivated by the ambience and overall luxuriousness of The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street. I can see why it is considered 4 star. I definitely need to experience this wonderful place at Covent Garden’s Seven Dials Villiage. Love it’s boutique appeal and the way you described it all is perfect!! The pictures are beautifully styled and I loved seeing 707, which, yes, is crisp contemporary yet glamorous ( exactly like you) and of course I know I could never resist the Italian and Peruvium small plates!!! This is all going to be saved for a future journey 🙂
    Thank you so much,
    Love ( Your) Jenny

    I realized when I went to Europe this summer, 3 star hotels sometimes just don’t cut it haha so I agree with you there. This hotel is simply amazing, and if I were to stay here on a trip to London, I know for a fact I will have a fabulous time there. I’m definitely bookmarking this one for a future trip. Thanks for such a thorough review with beautiful photos 🙂

    I was just in London about a month ago and fell in love with the Covent Garden area! This hotel looks so modern and chic and a truly wonderful place to stay. When it comes to hotels location is crucial and the fact it’s near the West End and Covent Garden is key! The suite looks so spacious and I’m in love with the marble bathroom! And can we talk about the good at Monmouth?! The presentation is impeccable and it looks so delicious too. I love both Italian and Peruvian food so I know I would love this place. Definitely have to try it the next time I’m in London as well as check into this beautiful Radisson Hotel! Xoxo, Christine

    Okay, thanks for sharing that 3 star hotels are no bueno in London! Here in the states, I tend to stick with 3 star hotels and up and never usually have any issues. One thing I have noticed is that all Radissons I’ve stayed in are really nice! I love how Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street has those luxury suites to truly make you feel at home. It definitely seems like your style 🙂 I sure wouldn’t mind some of that Italian food in the kitchen either!

    Radisson Blu looks like a chic and modern hotel. I know that it can be tricky to find a good 3-star hotel, most of the times you can hardly give them 2 stars ahaha. But this one is something different. Rooms are spacious and clean, everything looks new and cozy. I also like the reception area so much!

    This hotel looks so beautiful, and a great amount of spacious. My fiancé refuses to stay anywhere unless it’s four or five star (thank god) and I love just how much the details are refined. You have such a great eye for spotting cool places to stay!

    Hi Tommy!

    Your photos are so stunning and so professionally captured. I’m curious, do you use flash for this? the details are so on point. I would love to visit this place someday. I’m currently on a cleanse and these food photos are making me salivate. YUM!

    I’ve actually become a really fan of Radisson Blu hotels, they are always so chicly stylized and in the best locations… There really isn’t any issues I’ve ever had with them (other than I’ve had to leave!).

    I’ve only been to London once and where we stayed was not nearly as nice. The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street looks like the perfect combo of modern and elegant. Those suites are HUGE and look so comfy! And don’t get me started on Monmouth Kitchen. I’m getting so hungry just looking at your pics. It looks like a great place to grab a bite or drink with friends. Looks like you had a great stay! If I ever make it back to London…

    The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street looks absolutely marvelous! I feel like this is much nicer then some of the 5 star hotels I’ve recently stayed at in the U.S. The interior is very true to my taste and the suit exudes true luxury. The clean marble in the bathroom is quite lovely as well. I love the entire feel of the town within a town! Monmouth kitchen look divine! The images you took of the cocktails truly bring the to life! I’d love to experience Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street!

    I have never been to London except for a layover at the airport and I have always dreamed of visiting the city for such a long time. I hope that within the next year I’m able to go to London and definitely stay at The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street. It is such a magnificent hotel and the perfect place to relax and enjoy during my visit to the London. I love everything that I see in your pictures about the hotel especially the rooms and bathrooms. Also, love the food looks too exquisite. What an amazing review! xx. Gina

    Haha, I know exactly the struggle with hotels in London, it’s always a battle to win. But you can’t go wrong with The Radisson, wherever you are. The service is always on point. I’ve never been to this particular one Blu Edwardian Mercer Street, but I personally love all the Radisson places. This one looks so luxury and fine. I love the classy interior! And how divine the restaurant area is! I hope you spent a great time there!

    I love this post! I feel like most three star hotels nowadays are going downhill. It’s always best to stay at a higher ranked hotel if possible. I am going back to England in a few weeks and I will definitely have to check out The Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel! This 4 star looks like a 5! The Monmouth Kitchen also looks superb. I like how it embraces the art of shared dining! The decor, food and drinks also look amaze!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hey Thomas,
    How are you? I loved this! Hotel reviews are some of my favorite things to read about because they are a great way to see other people’s point of view in a good place where you can stay while you are on vacation. And I totally know what you mean, I went to London a few years ago during the summer and finding a vacant hotel was almost impossible. I would love love to go back sometime soon and I would definitely keep this in mind. I love the entire look of this place. It has that kind of look that almost makes you feel like you’re at home and it makes your stay a lot more enjoyable. The food for sure had me drooling! Those small plates look so tasty. Thank you so much for sharing I loved reading all about your stay!

    xoxo, vanessa

    The Radisson Hotel looks seriously chic!
    I think hotel reviews on blogs are really great as they are much more detailed then a travel site and with your fabulous pictures you can really tell that you’re going to have a comfortable stay.
    I like to stay in nice hotels when I’m traveling because I really think that it makes the experience much more pleasant.
    Bathrooms are really important to me and not just in my home but especially on vacations and you had me at marble bathroom!
    Those small plates look delish too.

    The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street does not look like a 4-star hotel as all!! It has such a grand entrance, and the rooms, omg, they look so Glam and Luxury! True British style. Covent Garden is such a darling and tranquil neighborhood, and it would be my first choice of location to stay in London. It’s close to all the nice shopping areas and the restaurants. I will definitely check out The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street next time when I go visit London.
