“The Urbanite Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

I have just had a couple of nights at this hotel. I have stayed at Z Soho but gave this a whirl as it was a bit cheaper, and for me, it actually proved to be a more useful location - buses and taxis easily available on Haymarket.

Only open a couple of weeks now and construction work still going on, but frankly it didn't diminish my stay at all. I selected a double room which is very well designed. The beds tend to have one side against a wall, and this was no exception. Fine for me as I was alone, but it can be a bit of a drag with two. Room has excellent blackout blinds, coupled with comfortable bed afforded me two excellent nights' sleep. The hotel has lots of added value; in room tea/coffee making facility, Sky tv, hairdryer, free wifi throughout hotel, complimentary cheese and wine in the evenings, and frankly throughout the day. The staff here are friendly and attentive, creating a very welcoming atmosphere and nice vibe in the communal area.

Room Tip: According to a fellow guest I spoke to, you may not wish to be within one or two rooms of the lift i...

Disarmingly charming staff who couldn't be more helpful. Free champagne or wine and cheese board on arrival. Small but perfectly formed rooms with lots of clever design details like storage for your suitcase under your bed, two and three pin plug sockets for travellers and hangars and pegs instead of a wardrobe. Clever wet room for a bathroom with lovely fluffy towels. And above all a very reasonable room rate. Just delightful.

Booked this place last minute for two nights, so many great things to say!

As per other reviews there is still work going on here, but don't be worried about noisy builders, banging and drilling as none of this is going on. There's obviously some bits that need finishing but don't let this sway you into booking a room here.

Check in - very easy, friendly and efficient staff. Had a complimentary glass of champers and was offered to pop down for further drinks during my stay.

Location - on a side street right off the main road running through Piccadilly Circus, pretty much within walking distance of everything. I had a room facing the side street and did get disturbed early morning by deliveries, although this is to be expected given it's London!

Room - amazing! could still smell that new paint smell, i could have easily been the first person in the room. Massive tv with HD channels, great little bathroom and shower. Bed was comfy and the black out blinds did a great job. Free wifi which was a decent speed and was very easy to connect to. (see my photos, room was a very funky layout)

For the quality of service and stay, not to mention the great rate i paid, I'm definitely going to book this place again, by far the best place i've stayed in London to date.

Have just come back from London and stayed overnight at this hotel.
Although not completely finished,the hotel was still being refurbished we still had a great stay, the rooms were finished to a high standard, free sky TV, free wifi, complimentary toiletries, use of hair dryer in room even had phone charger if you forget your own.
The room is compact which was ok for us as we was only staying overnight but if you have large suitcases it might be a squeeze, if you are sharing the room with a friend just a warning the shower cubicle has frosted glass and you can see the shape of person inside , you might want to wear swimwear in the shower if you prefer privacy.there is no wardrobe just five hangers on wall for those who bring a lot of clothes
Overall I would book again because is near the theatres and few yards from Piccadilly and Leicester square, this hotel is ideal for one or two nights stay

I stayed for one night here on business. The hotel has only been open one week and there is still work going on but the staff were so friendly and attentive. The rooms are tiny and very clean. Perfect for a bed and shower for the night. Sple continental buffet croissants , coffee and muffins.

Although the hotel was not finished and behind schedule, our room was amazing, not too small and finished to a very high standard. The staff could not do more for you, they went out of their way to make sure our stay was excellent. Complimentary champagne, wine, water, cheese and biscuits. As the kitchen was not fully installed there was a delivery of croissants, muffins and juice etc delivered to our room the next morning. The other major + for this hotel is the location. a minutes walk from Piccadilly circus and Leicester Square. I cannot recommend this hotel and staff enough. Cant wait to return.

Although the hotel wasn't finished this hotel has great promise. It's in a fabulous location for soho and the west end. It's situated at the bottom of Leicester square. The staff are second to none, especially Anita who welcomed us on our arrival. Where else in London do you get complimentary cheese, wine and Champagne until 2am. The rooms are completed to a high standard. Ultra modern, clean and functional but are a little small. I would definitely recommend this chain to anyone. Great staff, great customer service and great location. I'd just recommend the managing director to check out Citizen M as they're this hotels biggest competitor and have the market with their technology. I will be back and will bring more people. Thanks for a great stay.
