I had an amazing stay here for a short business trip. The price is slightly high but if it is within your budget, might as well why not. It will be unforgettable. The room is very comfortable made you feel such a waste to leave in the morning for work because all you wished that you could stay all day breakfast in bed and later eat at the restaurant. Will come back again most definitely.

We stayed for three nights in a deluxe room on the top floor with great views over rooftops towards London Eye and the Shard. Room was beautiful with modern English decor by Kit Kemp whose work you just have to love. They offer a huge selection of free movie DVDs, free wi-fi, complimentary bottle of water with turn down service. Bathroom was impeccably clean with separate shower and great selection of Miller Harris toiletries. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive which made our stay even more enjoyable. Probably the best hotel staff I ever encountered. The food at Refuel bar & restaurant whether it's breakfast or dinner is excellent and not to be missed. The location in Soho might be a problem for guests looking for airy, clean neighborhood but don't let location distract you. If you have a chance to stay in the Soho hotel and it's within your budget - do it!!!

Room Tip: Room 510 on the top floor with a small terrace and nice views.

We stayed in an apartment in September. The room itself was as nice as any place we've stayed at in the past except that for the price, there is ablsolutely no view worth opening your curtains for other than to get some light. The room was 2200 pounds per night which is $3500 US per night. We've stayed at almost exactly the same level of property elsewhere for around $700 night .... tops. And we've had magnificent views to boot. That said, the room layout was fantastic, the beds perhaps the best we've ever slept in and the staff as profesional, friendly and helpful as you'll ever find. It's hard to believe you could possibly spend much more per night that this, even, in spendy London. I had since checked the Ritz's on Piccadilla prices and they're much less. The hotel is also located in the heart of the Soho district in an area that we found to be pretty filthy and difficult to comfortably stroll because of the crowd s of younger partiers. Who largely all smoked as you past them which is annoying. So I'd love to rate this 5 star but the price to vlaue drags it down and the location is not, shall we say, in the nicest part of London. Expect nothing for a view but warhouses, an ally, and nearby comml buildings.

Excellent!! Great location!! Great boutique rooms!

All three above are so true, so if you do have the opportunity and it's within budget go for it!

Due to location DO NOT have a hire car until you're leaving this area, it's just no point or parking from what I remember.

I can only say thank you for a totally amazing room upgrade, the champagne and as always the service, we checked in on Sunday evening, my intention was to stay 1 night while my GF was staying for 2 nights with business meetings Monday and Tuesday.

Upon arrival we were informed we had been upgraded to a two bed/two bath apartment for both nights! I went to work back in Surrey Monday morning and soon found an excuse to leave early and head back into London to enjoy this room for another night!

I will continue to stay here whenever in town.

Thanks again to all the team, the upgrade was excellent, but that aside service never slips anywhere in this hotel.

Without question this is a good hotel - the junior suite we had was very well appointed and maintained with a spacious bathroom and high quality amenities. The public areas and very pleasant with two quiet drawing rooms which contrast very nicely with the permanently buzzing bar and restaurant.
The location is fabulous with access to dozens of restaurants and bars plus Mayfair, Oxford Street, Regent Street and Shaftsbury Avenue only minutes walk away. It is also surprisingly quiet for a hotel in the middle of Soho. The reception staff are also very attentive and friendly.
What's not so good are the prices. I appreciate it's central London but in all of my reviews if the price is right for what you get I have said so. And those reviews include London hotels like the Berkeley and many high-end restaurants. To be more specific: a junior suite of the size we had at £650 per night is toppy, especially given the lack of view (I can only speak for the room we were in clearly, but given the location and how built up it is I doubt any room has what you would call a view. And yes I knew this when I booked it). I've never met anyone who said they thought mini-bar prices were reasonable and the Soho is no exception. Unfortunately with no tea and coffee making facilities in the room it's either the mini-bar or the very expensive room service. I have no problem with paying a premium for room service breakfast and of course expect there to be a service charge. However, £69.60 for breakfast for 2 again seems pretty toppy. Don't get me wrong, its a decent breakfast but we could have walked out of the hotel onto Wardour Street and had breakfast in Cote at half the price for the same quality.
In summary, a very good hotel but could be better value-for-money.
