“How civilised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

Oh Hazlitts, you truly are charm personified.
A bolthole in which to relax and escape to, following a night on the tiles, and my what a night it was too. The experience included a meal at a Restaurant called Archipelago (Gnu casserole and Zebra steaks)
Then drinks at Ronnie Scotts (Hazlitts is within staggering distance) we were lucky enough to see a great show - Ruby Turner. She was amazing.
More drinks back at the Hotel by the fireplace in the little Library, Then bedtime.
Beds are comfy, bathrooms with Victorian fittings are splendidly OTT and rooms are cosy and elegant. Didn't try the breakfast, we walked 2 mins along the road to Bar Italia for much needed bacon rolls.

Absolutely love this place. This is our third visit and I don't think we will ever stay anywhere else in London again! Perfectly situated for the theatre / shopping and such a beautiful hotel. Everything about this place is perfect, from the friendly welcome on arrival, to wondering which room you will get, we have had a different one each time and have never been disappointed. Breakfast is wonderful, staff so friendly and informative. A true gem, feel so lucky to have found it.

We recently spent one night at Hazlitt's for a romantic celebration. Although we chose one of the least expensive rooms, which was admittedly on the small side and lacked a shower, it was very quiet and the service, atmosphere, and provisions for guests (including a lovely little sitting room, library, and honesty bar) meant that our visit never felt anything other than luxurious. We were pleasantly surprised by the number and range of dining option on Frith Street; it would be very easy to eat close to the hotel. Room service was very good value (it looked as though it might actually have been cheaper to have a meal in the hotel than in Soho) and breakfast was fantastic.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are certainly quiet - but insist on a room with a shower (rather than just a bath...

Treated myself to the Duke of Monmouth suite which has its own roof terrace with sliding roof panel, the largest tallest four poster bed, a huge bath fed by water from the mouth of a brass eagle and some other eccentricities. Before using the bath you engage an elaborate pulley to slide a wooden shutter over the window to get privacy from the offices opposite! There is also a modern bathroom suite adjacent to the roof terrace. The whole room is completely over the top but works totally; it is apparently hired extensively by film makers and the fashion industry, no surprise. Right in the heart of Soho with some great restaurants within a few steps. Quite an experience!

Room Tip: JUst go for the Duke of Monmouth- you will not forget it!

This is a very quaint hotel within an historic building so stairs lean and there are lots of them!! The furnishings reflect the era and are charming. The staff are friendly and helpful and we loved being in Frith St right in the centre of Soho so we could easily walk to the theatre. There are many restaurants in the surrounding streets and the tube is nearby as well as Oxford street for many and frequent buses.

Room Tip: Make sure you enquire re number of stairs to your room if you don't like stairs!!

Even when you're sober this place makes you feel just a little inebriated...partly due to the ancient slumping staircases and in reality the nice little honesty bar in the library. The soho 'village' neighbourhood, right on your doorstep, is vibrant, great for food and bars and a tad giddy too!

The rooms decked in sumptuous fabrics, antiques and Tardis like beds (literally ours looked tiny, we're used to a five footer, but felt pretty roomy)...and despite initial size related anxiety, we had one of the best, least disturbed and comfortable nights ever away from home.

The staff were on the whole helpful, but not what you'd call friendly, or consistent....our friends got the full room tour, we had to ask where our air con was!

Our only real disappointment was the bathroom. Antique fittings, whilst looking the part, just don't cut it like modern plumbing. Quirk and venerability are great but getting a shower whether you're in it or not just seems daft to me. Getting the temperature right was also suitably antique!

The Library honesty bar is a nice touch and not too pricey either....I'd definitely go back if only for the convenience of the location...and actually a really rather lovely hotel.
