We're Americans who spend about a month a year overseas and tend toward boutique hotels. Sometimes it's just us adults: this time, we brought the two kids who are 11 and 13. One Aldwych is now on my list of top 3 European hotels and it's due in part to the hotel and its location that I so enjoyed this trip to London. The rooms are a bit small, but fabulously appointed with generous modern bathrooms that include heated towel racks, big tubs, and very good soaps/lotions. Rooms themselves are modern with comfortable beds and very tall elegant windows. What really stands out, however, is the hotel service. Twice a day fresh towels, free bottles of water, daily fresh fruit for snacks, immediate, courteous attention to every request and need.
We tend not to use hotel restaurants and prefer to get around a bit. Not here! Daily breakfast was tremendous and several times, we sat in the lobby bar, which is always packed with London types (people-watching!) having drinks and tea. Drinks, food, service--all fabulous. Can't recommend this place highly enough. We expect to return in the fall
