Having spent the previous night in the rather pompous Stafford hotel, the Soho was a breath of fresh air.

I had booked a deluxe junior suite but was upgraded (without asking) to the penthouse. Vast, rather luridly decorated suite with one wall completely glass affording a fine view of... well, nothing very much. Rooftops, mainly.

Penthouse was well furnished, with comfortable sofas and chairs in abundance. Flat TVs in both bed and living rooms were excellent, both with rather low-rent but useful DVD players.

Reception staff were welcoming. Room service was fast, friendly: the food was tasty and hot, which is a basic requirement that some other London hotels seem to struggle with.

Gripes?

Wifi was not free (c'mon guys!) and the only complementary mineral water was supplied at turn-down. The bathroom was of an adequate size but somewhat cheaply furnished. No iron/ironing-board. Safe would not accommodate even the smallest of netbooks. As a chap, I did find the dressmaker's dummy and vibrant pink sofa a little too girly.

But these niggles are pretty trivial.

An excellently located hotel, attentive staff, decent-sized rooms and room service that is actually edible. I will be back.

Dear TripAdvisor reviewer,

This review belongs to SOHO Hotel in London, not in Barcelona!!!! I would really appreciate if you could repost it, since it can be misleading for SOHO Barcelona potential guests!

Muchas gracias,

Asun Pareja

My wife and booked the Soho Hotel, having read the reviews and having stayed in another Firmdale property - The Covent Garden Hotel.

The hotel is located in a very quite part of Soho and if you weren't looking for it, you would never know it was there.

Decor is 'trendy' without being sterile.

When I originally booked I was asked if it was for a special occasion. When I informed them it was our Wedding Anniversary, I was offered breaskfast and a bottle of Champagne on arrival at no extra cost.

If this wasn't enough when we checked into the hotel we were upgraded to a Penthouse Suite. The Penthouse Suite was enormous with a huge terrace.

Staff are very attentive and not at all pompus. Everyone is made to feel very welcome.

We had breakfast in the room the next morning, which was delivered exactly as ordered and on time and was delicious.

Would definately stay again.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and 2yr old daughter and was compelled to write
about our stay as it really was that good!
after reading the reviews about this hotel on trip advisor i was desperate to stay here as I work in travel and stay in london around once a month most recently at the dorchester which now seems dull and impersonal in comparison, we didnt book until we got to the hotel that day but wanted to book a luxury junior suite and we were told by reception that one was available after 6pm so as we were busy shopping etc we decided to wait till then so we waited in their refuel bar when we returned and to our amazement we were told that we were gettting upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment!!!
the apartment was absolutely beautiful like a home from home 2 bedrooms with gorgeous large beds and frette linen , new kitchen, living area, 3 flat screen tvs, miller harris toiletries, best mini bar ive ever seen, basically you couldve easily lived here no problems!!
we had some drinks in refuel bar and service was excellent, reception staff were also excellent very personal but not stuffy like other 5 star hotels, concierge was also very happy to help and room service staff also could not do enough for you, the hotel is that good you dont want to leave.
we also ordered room service and this was delivered promptly and was also of a good quality, and we had breakfast in our apartment the next morning that was also very good although they did firstly send us the wrong order but then sorted this out very quickly.

the only bad thing was having to check out of this central boutique 5 star gem of a hotel....
thankyou soho hotel and we will return very soon !!!

The staff make the hotel. It's in a great location (heart of soho although on a pretty dismal side street), is very beautiful and well appointed and is very, very hip. (Miley Cyrus anyone?)

The reason though to stay here is the staff. They are over the top helpful, nice and really go out of their way to help you out and make you feel welcome.

My chance to stay at the Soho finally came when we flew to London to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. The hotel is gorgeous, the breakfast is delicious and the rooms are huge. We booked a junior suite and were upgraded to penthouse no. 502. We had beautiful views over London from our large terrace and although Soho was buzzing on the hottest weekend of the year so far, we never heard a thing. Great beds, terrific sound-proofing and a treat every morning to hear the breakfast specials (the juices were delicious, esp the freshly squeezed apple and water-melon). The best thing about this hotel however is the staff. They are always attentive and helpful and create the informal, friendly atmosphere that the Soho is famous for - thankyou. I'm afraid I will have to start saving up for my next visit because I won't be able to stay in any other London hotel.
