Booked the Sanctum for my wedding anniversary and birthday. This type of hotel, small luxury boutique is right up our street normally. On arrival we were greeted by the most charismatic concierge I've ever met and the look of the hotel hit all the right buttons. We were shown our room and explained all about the hotels features, perfect!
We then spotted a letter on the bed explaining that the bar/restaurant was hosting a private party that evening and the roof top bar was also holding a private party between 15:00 and 22:00 to which, we as residents were welcome to join. No problem, we thought, as we had dinner plans and a show lined up.
Upon returning from our evening out at about 22:30 the hotel was alive, not a problem we thought. Our room was on the 4th floor (top floor below the roof bar) and the roof bar party was still jumping (literally from the way our walls were shaking!!) Anyway, with everything in our room still vibrating from the disco at 01:30 and several drunk revellers thinking it amusing to bang repeatedly on our bedroom door, the sumptuous bed we should have been sleeping soundly in seemed a waste.
After a short night we got up and enjoyed a very tasty breakfast (shame my wife had to sit with wet hair though as the electrics in the room had blown 2 hair driers).
Please don't get me wrong, the hotel is really cool, the rooms (bar a bit of dodgy wiring) are comfortable and luxurious and the staff are very friendly and all too willing to help.
The question is "is the Sanctum a small luxury hotel that cares about the people that pay good money to enjoy the comforts it offers or a party venue with beds for people that care nothing about sleep?"
- 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
