Good central location for easy access to many must see attractions. We loved the modern architecture and amenities and the room was clean and roomy. Sunday brunch at the W Lounge was also a highlight of our stay.

Substantial room. However over priced compared to over hotels in the area where we stay often. Breakfast was very good and worthwhile. Checking in took a while but staff were friendly. Good location Room was starting to look a little worn and could do with being updated

The room was amazing, so much more than I thought it would be. There really is a touch of glamour to the hotel. The location is ideal. Close to everything you might want for a girly trip to London. Some staff were a bit snotty but we still enjoyed it.

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.
