What a strange concept to have the bathroom sink in the middle of the room. Since this was the only surface in the room to work, you had to clean off your toiletries to make room and it was not a confirmed workspace. Gotta be quite honest too that the hallway smelled like sewage during my entire 48 hour visit...

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...

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)....

The perfect hotel for a short stay in the heart of London. The hotel is situated perfectly just at the border to Chinatown. M&M store is in the same building, across the street is the Lego shop and the beloved Shake Shack. The Hotel has a very spacious Lounge / Bar. Concierge Service is perfect. Our room was quite spacious...

We were in London for the first time and we chose this hotel because we were always happy staying at a W hotel. We were here for 4 days.

We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights while visiting London. The rooms are beautiful and hip. The bar is lively and vibrant. The attached restaurant has delicious lobster and scrumptious burgers. The room was clean and well appointed, and the staff was friendly, professional, courteous and helpful. We will definitely be coming back to stay again!

This is going to be a marmite hotel. Either you will love it or hate it. Personally I hated it but my other half loved it. The floor we were on had a load of glitter balls and dance music is being played when we exited the lift. When going into the room, the bathroom is in the middle of...

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.
