“Brilliant !”
Reviewed 6 October 2007

Just spent two delightful nights at The Soho Hotel. Location is ideal. Don't be put off by the rather odd Mews entrance or uninspiring views from the window of your room, everything else is simply excellent - very well-appointed rooms, superb food, vibrant atmosphere, and above all, the staff ! In 30+ years of staying in hotels around the world I would rate these guys as second to none. We have just booked a return visit next month !

Spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel and the experience was very enjoyable indeed. It's quite hard to imagine that tucked away in the middle of Soho is this fabulous establishment. Upon arrival, the staff greeted us with smiles and were pleased to tell us that we were being given a room upgrade to a luxury junior suite.

The suite was very spacious, clean and well decorated in a homely style packed with all modern equipment and luxury amenities. The only item missing was a kettle but apart from that you had everything else you needed for a comfortable stay. Breakfasts were excellent and we enjoyed the cooked food and cereals/breads and service was friendly and attentive.

Location of the hotel is a major positive as we were able to take a stroll through the streets of Soho and Chinatown and you're metres away from the main theatres. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed staying here and will definitely pass on these comments to other friends.

Absolutely amazing!

We had our wedding reception at the Soho Hotel and was blown away with the level of service, ambience and the quality of the food and drink that was provided. Staff were attentive, professional and very helpful in dealing with the many ad-hoc requests we had during the reception. The top notch service was matched by the excellent food and fabulous decor of the hotel - the events team really put on a great show, thanks guys!

On to the room itself. We were fortunate enough to be offered a special rate on a junior suite as it was our wedding (this also included the parents of the bride) but rather ironically, as we were enjoying the party so much we only managed a few hours before we had to leave (reservations guys did give us a complimentary late check out but unfortunately we couldn't utilise it as we had to be elsewhere). The suites are beautifully decorated and capture that elusive "boutique" feel just perfectly, incorporating top of the range facilities e.g. B & O plasma TV's, Tivoli radios etc... and a very comfy bed, it really was so difficult to check-out the next day (and not just because of the hang-over!)

As a Londoner, I very rarely stay in hotels in London, however, as an avid traveller and having been lucky enough to travel quite a bit with work, I must say that for sheer style, service and pure enjoyment, the Soho Hotel eclipses all other hotels in its class

My Girlfriend and I stayed at the Soho hotel for 4 nights in September. Just to get the record straight, I typically find things to complain about; this hotel did not give me that opportunity. I enjoy staying at boutique hotels that feature current designs and decors. The design of this hotel is genius in the way that it incorporates contemporary design features all while making it warm and welcoming. We stayed in a deluxe room which had a flos lamp over the bed, a Tivoli radio on the night stand, a Tivoli radio in the bathroom, a large flat screen TV, 2 couches, a desk and plenty of room to breed.

The bar, the gym, the library, the drawing room all where perfect. The concierge and all of other staff were of top caliber; very professional, courteous and helpful.

The only issue that I could bring is that you pay for all of this. Room rates are fairly expensive and all bar items are a killer. That being said, they don’t cram it upon you. I like the way they cater to all guests and they trust you. For example in the drawing room, there is a self serve bar with a notepad so you just write down what you consume and they charge it.

I probably spend well over 50 nights a year in hotel rooms and this was, by far, my favorite hotel yet…

I am based up North but find myself in London every two or three weeks and this has been the case for several years. I used to hotel hop like mad going through all of the classics including the Dorchester, Ritz and Mandarin Oriental as well as taking the odd flyer on the Sanderson, St Martins Lane, Malmaison and the Hemple (what was that place about?) Now again I found myself going back to the odd one a few times (The MO in particular) but recently I have been opting for hotels in the Firmdale Group noteably The Haymarket, Charlotte Street and The Soho Hotel and I am now a loyal customer. Having been unimpressed by the style over substance of the Schraeger hotels I was very surprised by the depth of quality in all of the Firmdale properties; the service from start to finish, the F&B offerings, the appointments of the rooms and the quality of the beds were all top drawer. The Soho has to be my favourite as I think the location is spot on and the atmosphere in the public areas is always half decent - I will continue to take it over the oligarch-ridden hotels in Knightsbridge from now on.

Just stayed at the magnificent Soho Hotel as a treat for our 8th wedding anniversary. We live in London, but still wanted somewhere fab to escape to without a long drive, and settled on this hotel. We were so excited, and were not dissappointed. The sitting room is very stylish - a huge room with huge furniture, beautifully designed, every detail thought of. We loved the honesty bar - such an array of choice, everything you could wish for. Games for you to play - chess even, try this after a glass of champagne - a challenge!! The bar was wonderful - we had a cocktail or two of course! The bedrooms are just awesome to use an Americanism! The bed was the most comfortable ever. We had a juniour suite - flat screen, huge bathroom, huge room, sofa, 3 chairs, curtains that block our all daylight. Just perfect in every way. Minibar - again stocked with the best of everything, candles, perfume...even a thong if you had forgotton yours!! The 2 screening rooms in the basement are stunning, Sunday films at 3pm - what a great idea! I would recommend this hotel in every way. I have nothing negative to say at all, breakfast was a treat also. A life experience to remember!

After reading the reviews on here, we decided to book this hotel for a 2 night weekend break. And we weren't disappointed. It manages to have a very cosmopolitan, individual, upmarket feel, but not in the least bit stuffy.

The staff were very pleasant, helpful and efficient. We had a junior suite which was a really good size. Extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was good - great choice and quick service. We ate in the restaurant one night too, which was also very good.

The location is different, right in the heart of Soho, but its good to get away from all the touristy spots and there are some excellent bars and restaurants to choose from.

The Soho Hotel will be hard to beat and not sure I would want to stay anywhere else next time we visit London.
