Most of my trips to London are for business in the City and its nice to stay in a non-business location. I have stayed here 3 times. Great service in general (with one exception). Health club has full weight bench press, and relatively under utilized: can always equipment to use. During the last trip, after two days of eating dinners...

This hotel is in a great location in the heart of the west end with the main shopping areas within 5 minutes walk. The hotel reception is on the first floor with no signage at the entrance on the ground floor. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and gave us lots of relevant information about our stay. The decor...

The hotel is very well located, close to everything. The bar at the reception level is quite good, nice ambiance and cocktails. The only downside was the amenities in the rooms, although we were two people, and we stayed for 4 nights, we always had to ask everyday for extra bottle of water (they put just one) , extra shampoo...

I thought the W London Leicester Square was set up strange.This location did not have the same vibe to me that other W's have. We had a large suite and like other W suites it was nice, but I did not like the layout. The lounge was so loud and bursting with tourists. I felt like I wanted to get...

Okay. The cocktails were great. They had this awesome and tasty bourbon based raspberry/passion fruit drink that was delicious. They also had an apple/pear/rosemary gin-based drink. The prosecco was alright. The venue was very lovely. Good space, lots of places to stand or sit. Not much in terms of dancing so thie place was moreso geared towards professional calibre partying....

Nice location in Soho. Easily walkable area to great restaurants and easy access to the tube (multiple locations). Rooms are a little odd with the sink in the middle of the room but my wife liked it. Some said its loud but its not - it is central London after all and not Minneapolis!

If you like bling - then this is the place for you! Everything sparkles and shimmers (apart from the corridors - they're pitch black!). The rooms have the sink in the middle - just strange!

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.
