Selected this hotel based largely on location. We were looking forward to the boutique style hotel in London. The hotel is a little more avant garde than we wanted. It styles itself as a rock and roll hotel (we did not realise this). There are art works that some people might regard as challenging. The music was loud and on the day we arrived the hotel was celebrating summer with a party. It was a bit too much for us but perhaps it would suit a younger person. I don’t think I would recommend this hotel for people seeking a quiet escape from the London streets but if hip, loud activity is your thing then perhaps give it a try. Room was mostly clean, comfortable and well appointed. The noise from the street is appalling and kept us awake until closing time, which was after 3am (the noise stopped at 3.40am). This is my most disappointing experience of a hotel in terms of noise – dreadful. The cost of the hotel was very high and our expectations were for a boutique hotel with friendly service and a refuge from the city – it is not. Overall, I think we were not the right demographic for this hotel (middle age plus couple). I could not recommend this hotel but if you do stay make certain you only accept a room at the back side of the hotel. I would not return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Today’s rock’n’roll hotel is less about threats of incidental bodily harm and more about a glamorously decadent atmosphere, and the new model is a place like the Sanctum Soho.Here it means a dash of modern minimalism, a sprinkling of baroque opulence, and an emphasis on the darker end of the color palette. The in-room electronics are totally up to date, while some throwback touches are retained for atmosphere’s sake. It’s a twenty-four-hour hotel with a liberal, tolerant service concept; what you want, you’ll get, without so much as a raised eyebrow. In that, it’s not so fundamentally different from some of London’s more conservative luxury hotels — it just feels naughtier. ... more less
