Firstly this Hotel is in an amazing position! You really couldn't get better for Regent St/Oxford St /Soho......... Must mention Marty the Concierge, such a warm welcome and really friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
The Hotel itself is small but has a nice bar/lounge area and the Suite we stayed in was really lovely, some people have commented rooms are very small but our Suite was more than adequate, lovely comfortable bed and very clean.
The Hotel has a Rooftop Terrace bar which is normally hired out for functions but as a hotel guest you can use this facility. This is where things go downhill, The Sanctum needs to establish weather it is a Hotel for paying guests or a night club for teenagers, this is not a cheap hotel and I feel having a free for all rooftop bar full of screaming drunk teenagers is doing them no favours at all.
We were not disturbed by the noise, and we are more than up for drinks and late nights dancing, but this really was something you would expect to see in Ibiza! (and not in a good way)
The staff do not seem to know what is going on re who is up there, people running around in dressing gowns trying to get in Jacuzzi at 1 am, all makes this hotel feel a bit cheap.
Overall This is a good hotel, position excellent , would I stay here again? probably not and that's mainly because of the atmosphere and the whole rooftop terrace situation. for £340 I can stay somewhere I feel is (sorry to say) more classy.
The Sanctum has the potential to be amazing, but it really needs to have a rethink about the message it is giving off to paying guests and non residents.
- 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
