great location, small hotel for a "W".....but rooms and service were outstanding. Walking distance to almost all the great Theaters....see a show, visit a pub and enjoy your stay at the "W", while you visit one of the worlds great cities.

Stayed here as part of a business trip and was very happy with the location and service. I thought it might be noisy because of its location but I was pleasantly surprised that it was quiet for sleeping. Buzzy bar and night life.

We stayed here several times but this time we needed a one night stop over in London on our way back to Norway after a two week holiday at Mauritius and decided to stay at W again. As always we where never disappointed. Our room was a WOW suite and it was WOW with big letters. Fabulous design, plenty of...

The location is simply fantastic, just between Leicester Square and Chinatown. It is so convenient to move around London from that place, and the area is by itself very attractive at any time of the day and the night. This is a typical W hotel, with all the nice things and also the inconvenient ones... Rooms are extremely modern and...

Modern hotel, expensive for what it is but no more than other London hotels I suppose. Stayed Saturday night and it was very noisy both inside the hotel with music being blasted from the hotel bar until around 2am and outside from all the local casinos - which went on until around 06:30am! So not much sleep had!

Our hotel is known for its colourful scene and energetic nightlife – something we strive to communicate to guests prior to arrival. Of course we wish the issue had been avoided altogether and I am sorry...

The venue is beautiful but the service at the bar is disrespectful and dismissive. I went to the bar to buy drinks: a pina colada and a cranberry juice. I had to wait 20 min to be served. The pina colada was served with Pepper! This is horrible. The cranberry juice was served as a vodka cranberry. Then the bill...

Definite wow factor with the rooms in this hotel, staff are friendly, cocktails in the bar are great and the breakfast is really good. Would give a higher score but think it's overpriced, if you can get a good deal would definitely recommend though.

I like W Hotels, even though they are way more trendy than my normal haunts. The W in Leicester Square is no exception. The room was big, the bed was comfortable; the strange set up of a separate toilet closet, a separate shower closet, and the vanity in the middle of the room worked fine. Location was exactly where I...

Upon arrival the reception did not want to accept me because my husband booked my room and paid (!) for it. The were very arrogant about it and really had tot talk to management if they could make an exception for me. After 15 minutes they decided they could. Well, but my husband could not pay for 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.
