“Chic and Sublime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013

Had a great stay at South Place Hotel - really comfortable hotel with loads of character and great service. We stayed for a night on a weekend away in London - the location is great - very easy to get to from either Moorgate or Liverpool Street - and within easy walking distance for Spittalfields Market. Everything in the room was really well thought out and worked perfectly. The room was very comfortable - and had a huge bath. The mini-bar is probably the best one you are likely to find anywhere. We did venture out to eat - but wished we hadn't bothered - as the service, ambience in the Hotel beats anything else around it. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you Simon for your positive feedback about your stay with us. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your next stay even better - my first suggestion is to dine at Angler, our rooftop restaurant - the food is sublime and service impeccable. We hope to see you back very soon!

Best wishes,

I booked the South Place for the 3rd of March as I wanted to go out in central London that night. . The location is perfect. . Just a few minutes walk from Moorgate train station. . Check in was smooth & quick. . The lady from reception helped me with my bags and showed me how to use controls in my room. Bang and Olufsen TV, iPod dock, Marble Bathroom, Champagne Glasses, Wine Opener, Toaster! This hotel is absolutely amazing. . I'd stay there again. This is what 5star hotels should be like. . The Gym looked amazing so did the terrace bar next time I'll explore both! The staff has 5star customer service skills. I can't praise this hotel enough! I want it to my own little secret!

Wow, thank you for kind words about South Place! We're so glad to hear you were looked after and the extras in the room were explored and appreciated. Spring is coming... we hope you'll return to sip some champagne on our roof terrace very soon.

Cool places are great to stay as long as beeing cool doesn't become an excuse to mess with the basics: decents beds, good showers, friendly staff, ...

Very happy to share that this hotel does great for both basics and beeing cool.

Some nice extra's: fresh lime and limon with the mini-bar, great gym with technogym equipment en daylight, free and well working internet, a courtyard with tree ferns (my favourite plants), ...

Location is great if you work in the city, if you're up for a touristic tour you will need the tube (Moorgate is just around the corner)

Just to be complete: Bang & Olufsun is a bit passé for me, touch based room controls react slow,...

Great place, sure will come back.

Room Tip: Room 418 was comfy, not a great view on the courtyard

Thank you genuinely for your positive feedback on your stay at South Place. It sounds like you took the time to explore the property, use the gym, hopefully make yourself a nice mini-bar cocktail?

We are looking into issues with the touch pad controls reacting slowly for all rooms, particularly with your room number.

I hope that you come back and stay with us again soon, there are more details to be discovered!

My partner and I stayed here in a king sized room for one night. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from my office in the City so the location is perfect for business and pleasure. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was fantastic and the room was perfect (huge bath!) Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.

Just back from London where i stayed at the new South Place Hotel @3 South Place. The hotel is perfectly located in The City with walking distance to everything around. 2 min from Liverpool station. The hotel, definitely a 5 Star Design Hotel, is relatively small and reasonably priced. Room are fabulous with all the latest technology and amenities. At night a low but trendy atmosphere in the bar with a live DJ playing soft lounge music. Best of all was the staff. Everyone from the frontdesk, doorman to the people waiting tables really knew how to treat customers to get the to feel at home and willing to come back. I am going back soon and this time bringing my wife. Well done team @South Place Hotel. From now on i will not bother staying at any other hotel when visting the great city of London.

Room Tip: Ask for the Studio room, not much more expensive, but really worth it.

I booked this hotel for its location only. It was right where I wanted it to be and actually the hotel was much more than just well located. It was really nice. Very new hotel, rooms are spacious, the hotel is very quiet even if, when you arrive, you doubt of it since the bar is very popular and music is loud. But once in the room, you do not hear anything. The room service is very efficient and good. The amenities are very good. The bed is great with many pillows. And I had a pina colada at the bar and it was excellent (and I am an expert !). So whole in all, it was a very nice experience and I would definitively recommend it.

What a wonderfully seductive place in the heart of London. Friendly staff, stylish decor, great food & drinks, make this place feel like the home away from home, you always crave on business trips.
I stayed here with an important business partner from the Far East. His favourite part of the hotel, was his large comfy bed, while mine was the "Secret Garden" Bar.
The moment you approach the hotel, you are greeted by the friendly door staff. Entering the hotel, you are met with smiles from the receptionist. None of the turned up nose, "we are too hip to smile" attitude.
The rooms are modern, with a mood lighting, & beds to sink into, without a trace. Large baths, luxurious toiletries, & a Bang & Olufsen on the wall. Yip.
I only stayed one night, but felt a few more nights would of been necessary, to soak in this tremendous place.
Just try it. Disappointment lives a long way away from this hotel.
Oh, & sssshhh, it's a Secret.

Stayed September 2012, travelled on business
