I've stayed, at this hotel, several times and have stayed at a number of Firmdale properties -- this is, by far, their best.

Great public spaces; smart decor; great service and the restaurant was fantastic. Love how they provide the NYTimes (folio size and double sided).

Just stayed at the Soho for one night on Saturday after previously visiting the bar there. What a brilliant place to stay, attentive, friendly staff, fabulous cocktails and an upgrade to one of the beautiful 5th floor suites with the most amazing views of London.
Location is excellent. can't fault this hotel in any way - expensive yes it is but what an experience! Good for a bit of celeb spotting too!!

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…
