“Uber cool!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Of course it is 5 star so a wonderful hotel with exceptional service. This uber cool hotel is in a fantastic location for exploring London and the roof top bar has amazing views. The rooms are very clean and spacious for a city hotel. But for me this place was too chic, I could't find my way out of the toilets, the lighting in the room is just frustrating and it is full of young trendy people. I had a room on the first floor on a Friday night and it was very noisy from the bar. I was told that under normal circumstances this room would not have been filled but it was a very busy night. The noise was not horrendous, but you could not describe this as a quiet and peaceful room! The hotel was beautiful and if you are looking for somewhere ultra trendy, ultra modern, good food, great location and you like to stay up and party this could be the place for you.

Room Tip: Not on the first or top floor at weekends -the noise from the bar and the roof top bar is a bit disr...

Really enjoyed staying last weekend. In a sea of hotels this one stands out with its unique design, quirky touches and extras. The staff were a delight - unobtrusive but so eager to help. Loved the message, Aura team and would totally recommend.

I can't say enough about how crazy wonderful this place is. We reserved a Chic Suite but were upgraded to a Passion Suite for our three night stay in early June. It was great. A round bedroom, side sitting room and 1.5 bathrooms with a tub that could likely fit three people. I agree with folks that the hallways are dark and the remote controls for the room can be slightly confusing but this is a modern hotel with a cool edge. If you want the standard fare, stay accross the street at One Aldwych but if you want an experience you will never forget (jellyfish climbing the walls in reception? How cool) stay here. Plus, do not leave until you have visited the roof top bar. The views are amazing.
I have stayed in five star hotels aronud the world and I will never forget the passion suite and the ME - well done!

Room Tip: I can't comment on the standard rooms but the Passion suite was definitely over the top in an un...

Overall I like the hotel but they let themselves down on small things. Our room did not get cleaned until the evening first day and then it was just a quickie. Trying to get a shaving kit as my byfriend forgot took 3 irate calls and 30 mins and then it was the maintenance man that did it!! There was no bath which we were not aware of before :( The bar on the roof has obviously become very popular so not really easy for hotel guests to use in comfort. Breakfast was good and food quality good. Like the overall concept of the hotel and it is certainly different but pricey really. They do try very hard with the customer service but just don't always seem able to provide the basics.

Pros:
Designer and minimalist design (very zen)
Superb location
Warm and friendly customer service

Cons:
None really. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

This is a modern designer boutique hotel in the middle of SoHo. Well connected by the tube on multiple stations incl. Leicester Square which has the Piccadilly Line to Heathrow. Strong recommendation to see the 8 PM universe creation show - it is free for guests of the hotel and seemed sparsely attended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Wellington - has a good view of Strand and the theaters. Don't stay higher...

Dear A K,
It was so nice to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. A great location, and great design from the team at Foster & Partners topped off with the wonderful lightshow in our show stopping Atrium.
We can’t wait to see you here with us again, and hope you get the chance to explore even more of the hotel, the views from Radio bar and truly wonderful and it is always fun to watch London from above.

Hotel has the wow factor, but our room had a cracked shower floor tile. This caused a serious injury to my wife's toe.
When staff was informed they said that housekeeping had confirm the tile was not crack before we check in... Total lie....so questions the integrity of this high end hotel staff!!!!

I read previous reviews with some trepidation, concerned that I may have made a mistake booking this hotel. My experience was great. The staff were warm and friendly, the food was exceptional and the minimalist design of the room was fantastic. Definitely worth staying at again.
