“"Sunny night in Soho"!!!!!”
Reviewed 16 September 2009

My partner and I stayed in "The Soho" on a weekend night and found the hotel to be an ocean of serenity in the frenetic madness that is Soho. The location really speaks for itself! The hotel itself is as you would expect of this type of hotel. The staff were polite, although the chap who offered to show us how to operate the door key had to be told twice that we could open the door without his help! We could! Sometimes too much service can be as bad as too little! The room didn't have the "wow" factor we were expecting, nevertheless it was very pleasant and the bed and bathroom were exceptionally good. My partner accidentally smashed a bottle of nail varnish on the bathroom floor and the housekeeper dealt with the same with maximum efficiency and minimum fuss in a friendly manner. Breakfast was included and was exceptional in every respect save for the £5.00 charge for an extra slice of toast, which I thought was a bit miserable given the cost of the room. The restaurant and the other public areas are very pleasant. There is a guest area which is very tastefully decorated and is set out very much like Winston Churchill's living room at Chartwell, very English, very cosy. Overall "The Soho" is very impressive. I thought I saw a "celeb" at breakfast, it's that sort of place....highly recommended.

We came to London for an extended weekend break and chose The Soho Hotel based on a recommendation.

We were enthralled with the place from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The hotel's ambiance is intoxicatingly relaxing. Everything about the hotel exceeded our expectations. The service was wonderful; nothing was too much effort.

The lounge bar has a fabulous, unpretentious buzz and the cocktails are superb. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but other guests we spoke to had enjoyed their meal.

Our suite was beautifully appointed, tasteful and relaxing.

We will certainly be returning to what has become our favourite London hotel.

I love the Soho Hotel and have stayed there a couple of times. The rooms are large, beautiful and full of light. Service is friendly. Special mention of the bellman from New Zealand who was so nice. However the last stay was marred by the concierge. If asked for theater tickets the price was higher than elsewhere, transportation the same thing. When asked about finding about ticket prices for several plays to compare he would arbitrarily just choose one. He never, ever discussed prices with us. We had to ask everytime and most of the time he had just gone ahead and booked transportation. When told that we were aghast at the what he wanted to charge for a one way fare to the Cotswolds all he said was "sorry". Not let me see if I can do better, or here are alternate means of transportation. We inmediately called the hotel we were visiting in the Cotswolds and they sent a car for us that cost 80 pounds less. Not to mention that they were flabbergasted to hear what the concierge wanted to charge us.This is not acceptable. My sister in law had the same problems with him. The weekend concierges seemed much nicer.
I will stay here again I love the Soho and also the Haymarket, but I suggest that when booking things through the concierge you double check everything.

We booked in here for just one night, but didn't want to leave. It is simply that good.

The room we had was spacious, well equipped, welcoming and surprisingly quiet.

The staff were friendly and helpful, recommending restaurants, making bookings, giving directions and booking transport.

One improvement would be free wireless internet. It can only improve on an almost perfect offering.

I booked just one nights stay on the Sunday night / movie package for my first years wedding aniversary. On arrival we were upgraded from the suit I had booked to their headline "Soho Suite". Aside from the epic views from the enormous and beautiful rooms, I actually couldn't believe how well they managed to balance the attentive and freindly service with the infromality of staying at a friends house.

Tasteful, elegant and very relaxing. I can't recomend this place highly enough......GO and STAY!!!

Absolutely brilliant, cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Had drank in the bar previously and wanted to stay the next time we visited London which is what we did.

It lived up to all expectations, we got upgraded when we arrived to a luxury double which was a very large room for London which was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was gleaming. There was a turndown service at night too and towels we had used before going out for the evening were all changed by the time we got back.

The "Refuel" bar/restaurant has a great atmosphere with extremely attentive staff. Although this hotel is 5 star, the staff are extremely laid back and very nice.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough and can't wait to return.

I love this hotel, and we stay here whenever we go to London. Previously we use to stay at One Aldwich, but it needed an update so we tried the Soho.

The location is great, walking distance to numerous attractions, including Soho, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Theatre district, Covent Garden etc. It hard to believe the building used to be a car park, the hotel is beautiful, the rooms are great and the bar area is popular in its own right. Its certainly not cheap, but worth every penny. The cocktails in the hotel bar are great and the bar staff friendly, reception are always happy to help and there’s a private lounge for hotel guests if the bar is a bit full

The hotel restaurant is not very popular, so I’d recommend eating elsewhere for some atmosphere (plenty of places nearby). We have had room service and breakfast at the hotel and it’s always been superb, so not sure why the restaurant never seems to be busy - maybe it’s not a weekend place

Anyways, love this hotel! If you are happy with the room rates and you want a quality, friendly well located hotel in London, this is the place to go.
