Duchy House is a 19th century building and has both double and single occupancy bedrooms across four floors, with lift access. Our bedrooms range in size and guests have a choice of rooms with either ensuite or shared shower room facilities. All guests have access to a communal kitchen located on each floor for basic self-catering, with common rooms and an onsite laundry is also available for use in the basement.
Duchy House is located on the junction of the Strand and Waterloo Bridge (the buildings entrance is located between Pret-a-Manger and Café Nero on Waterloo Bridge (postcode WC2R 1HG) and across the road from the vibrant and bustling Covent Garden. Thus, whilst road traffic and the night time economy in this part of London might pose a noise issue, windows in all bedrooms are fitted with secondary glazing. Guests may also request rear facing rooms (these are rooms with the letters J, K, L, M, N and O on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors), and we will endeavour to accommodate requests for these rooms subject to availability.
Duchy House is secured by a card key entry system covering both the main entrance door and internal corridor doors. All bedrooms have individual key locks and the property has 24 hour CCTV coverage, thereby making Duchy House a safe place to stay.
