“Great location, great stay, warm welcome”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

First time in London, we stayed had the Soho hotel for 6 nights. We could not have made a better choice. The room (we were given un upgrade), was large well organised and very comfortable. The staff was welcoming and helpful, but not intrusive.
Upon arrival, our flight was landing really early, we had requested a picnic hamper which was beautifully organised, complete with real glasses, and absolutely delicious food. Thanks to Indre and her team.
We had dinner at the restaurant and the quality of the food and service was excellent.
The location of the hotel was perfect as we were close to everything we wanted to do but at the same time the neighbourhood felt out of the tourist route. Many great restaurants and coffe shops close to the hotel too .

Room Tip: Our room was facing a local pub, but it was never a problem, no noise after 10h00.

Had the most fantastic stay. The best hotel in London. Decor, comfort, ambiance all to die for. Service is impeccable - staff so helpful, polite and welcoming. You really feel special when you stay hear. Beds so comfortable - had a brilliant nights sleep. Loved the Miller Harris amenities and the mini bar was stocked with out of the ordinary treats. Body oil gift delivered to the room was a nice touch. There is a real buzz about this place. In a great location in the middle of Soho. You absolutely must stay here. Oh and get a soho sensation cocktail at the bar ..........

We stayed this weekend for our anniversary and it was one of the best hotel experiences i have had and definitely the best in London.
The hotel is down a very quiet mews in the heart of Soho just off Dean street. If you want a hotel in the West End it doesn't get any more central than this but the mews itself is very quiet. A perfect location.
As soon as we checked in we were made welcome. We were offered 2 complimentary glasses of champagne (which i must admit i forgot to take up!) and a room upgrade as we were celebrating. The hotel itself was very cool and relaxed and the decor unique and quirky. I am normally a classic hotel person but this place has really converted me to the "Boutiques".
The room was a very good size and again uniquely decorated. The bed was huge and so comfortable that i could have spent the whole weekend in it! The bathroom was also large and very modern. I believe all the rooms are decorated slightly differently which does make the whole experience more special.
We didn't really use the facilities aside from the bar. I was saw the peaceful drawing room and the clever idea of the "honesty bar". I didn't get around to visiting the gym or the cinema but would expect a high standard if the rest of the hotel is anything to go by.
I loved the bar in the hotel. It seemed popular with non residents and i can see why. A wide variety of drinks choices and cocktails and friendly bar staff. Seating around the bar can be hard to come by on a Friday or Saturday evening but it did add to a cool atmosphere.
Breakfast was pleasant, large helpings and plenty of choice. We didn't have any bar snacks but they looked good as well.
All in all a fantastic stay. I am the sort of person who like to try new hotels and never really visits the same one twice but i am sure i will make an exception for this one.

Full disclosure: we are regulars at this hotel but for good reason. The hotel is exquisitely decorated with bright colorful accessories with perfect mix of rustic and modern. The result is relaxation. The reception is pleasant and helpful but the concierge is first class. Hard to get tickets or reservations will be acquired. The various common spaces are also nice with honor bar to living room. You can have tea ther as well. Breakfast in the restaurant is made to order and flexible. The exercise room is small but useful. The screening rooms are great on Sunday afternoon cinema club. See relatively new release in this setting is priceless. The rooms are large and again nicely appointed. The beds are extremely comfortable ( frete?). The bathroom has walk in shower and separate tub. Generally all rooms have a bidet. Given the location, the rooms are extremely quiet. The air-conditioning is also up to USA standards. The staff cannot do enough for you. They could change bath amenities from Miller Harris to something more exclusive. Highly recommend. My only hotel in London hotel.

Stayed for an anniversary treat. Room was pure luxury, top floor with balcony which was lovely. Wanted to take the bed home, bliss.... Best sleep in ages. Front desk staff extremely helpful. Dining room and bar staff also friendly and helpful.
Complimentary bottle of bubbly which was a lovely touch and much appreciated.
Overall our stay was out of this world. Hope to able to return one day.

Room Tip: Our top floor room was superb..

I returned here for a stay recently, after a 5 year absence (whilst I tried other hotels). The hotel itself has been maintained nicely and is still looking very fresh.

A couple of down points:
1. I had a package that had "free wifi". But it seems to me that all guests get free wifi- so not really a feature.
2. We have an "upgrade subject to availability" package. Again, there was no attempt to provide the upgrade to us, we had to ask if it was available and were told not. To be honest, I got the impression that they had no intention of providing the upgrade (unless they were 100% certain that they could not rent the room)- although I am sure management would just say that they are only able to "subject to availability" and they were full!
3. Breakfast was a problem, both in room and in their restaurant. We ordered in room the first morning and it arrived in a timely manner but was pretty cold (full English). The second day we thought we would go to the restaurant in search of a proper warm full English. We had to wait for a table, wait for our tea and coffee and food was barely warm again. The staff seemed "hassled", I assume because they were busy.

Other positives remain, good location but for the price- I think I will return to Cafe Royal or somewhere similar.

Shame really.

This is a superb hotel. My partner took me here for my birthday and we were upgraded to a two bedroom suite!! It was gorgeous. The room was huge and well furnished, with a kitchenette and well stocked mini bar. The communal areas are all very tastefully decorated and although we didn't visit the bar, it was packed the whole time. We opted for breakfast in bed which was promptly delivered and all very tasty. We would definately return - location wise it is right in the heart of Soho so really easy to get to bars/restaurants and shops.
