Long time SPG Member and one time head cheerleader for this Particular W Hotel property. Reviewed previously by me. Have stayed here multiple times, but will be difficult to get us back. Started at check in, suites available for a price, no upgrade, that's ok I understand. At check in I'm told how to get on the internet, that the...

Dear AARDVARKKILLER, Well…. we really missed the boat on your stay didn’t we? We managed to properly mess up. I’m so sorry that this has happened. It seems like there was just one thing after the other that went wrong and not at any occasion did we manage to turn your experience around. The sad thing is also that you...

I love W Hotel, all around the world, and London one is a very good one. Location is very conveninet, few steps from Piccadilly Circus. Standard rooms are small, but cozy and nice, but not well equipped in terms of amenities. A good choice in London!

Just had a great weekend in London, we love to stay at the W. The location is convenient, right in the heart of Leicester Square. The bar is great and changes atmosphere through the day, until very late in the evening/morning :) .......and they serve great light snacks, lunches and afternoon tea too. The Spice Market serves a beautiful breakfast,...

As a frequent biz traveler, and a loyal SPG platinum member, one expects good service. W Leicester Square exceeded my expectations. From a staff who recognized me as a patron (it's also a super hip spot), to the exceptional treatment, I feel compelled to give a resoundingly positive review. The people, and building are top notch. They know how to...

Recently stayed for 2 weekend nights. The whole experience from checkin to check out was great. They have good security at the doors. It is on the square so there is the potential for having the lounge and bar overwhelmed with visitors. That would leave no room for guests to enjoy the hotel they are paying for. So with that...

Needed an emergency 5* hotel close to Leicester Square so went with lastminute.com's secret rooms operation. Although I got a good price with them I was shafted with credit card fees and their refusal to issue a VAT invoice meaning I've paid way over the odds. Lesson learnt. That being said, I was happy to find out the hotel was...

Myself and some friends usually love going to the W for drinks. However, their head security guard might have mistaken himself as God. We were laughed at and ridiculed by this member of the W Staff. As a long time customer of the location and the hotel chain, I'm saddened this type of person even receives employment! Disgusting! The hosts...

We recently stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is great...it's the time square of London. We traveled with our teens and can't ask for a better location.

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.
