In a suite here at the moment, after upgrading, see below. If you ever wondered what a room would be like if it were designed by someone who had never stayed in a hotel, and likely cracked out, well here's your answer. Booked a standard room, it's more of a standard bathroom with an attached bedroom. Who the hell puts...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 February 2017

Really cool hotel in the heart of central London. I stayed for work last year and came back to stay again. Rooms are on the small side - but bedding is comfortable, shower has good pressure. It's a unique design where the bathroom counter is in the middle of the room - takes a bit of getting used to. Only...

WLondonLS1, W Insider at W London Leicester Square, responded to this review

Hello Matt G, Thank you for your review! Is it a pleasure to hear that you had an amazing stay with us, and that you found our facilities convenient to fulfil your expectations (I am also a big fan of our Fit area, that view over London roofs is something quite unlikely to find in many gyms here in London)....

Nice location. Doormen looked more like bouncers from 80s + 90s night club. Plenty of good looking people, from patrons to staff. Arrival to hotel feels like walking into a club with luggage. Virtually impossible to have a conversation with the Front Desk agent as the music is so loud. We were shouting at each other as he was explaining...

I've been a long time customer of the SPG hotel family but this was my first stay a W branded hotel. I booked the room through miles for 3 nights. I selected the W mainly for it's location within London. Prior to my stay I consulted the hotel website which had great directions on getting in and out of the...

I've been to W Hotels around Asia and North America, and this one didn't measure up. Pros Really great location - especially for first time visitors to London. Close to West End and walking distance to many tourist attractions. Bus tours are just across the street. Room is modern, and decent size. Cons Cleanliness is poor. The lobby lounge on...

It really is a matter of choice and tastes. The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of London. For me that is the positive. The over abundance of glitter balls, loud music, not very helpful staff coupled with the actual rooms are all negatives that would stop me staying again. Why would anybody design a room with the hand...

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
