Can't complain with the location it is in the center of all the actions. However, the room is tiny and does not worth the money...is probably the smallest w I have been and I just don't like the fact that the hotel restaurant is actually burger and lobster. It doesn't mean the food is bad in fact is actually very...

True W property. Hip and modern. Location was fantastic, a few steps of Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, and SoHo. Great customer service. One of the best concierge services. Breakfast in room included! What else can you ask for?

The hotel is located in the heart of Leicester Square, right in front of China Town entrance. The hotel bar on the first floor is accessible not only for hotel guests but also for people that walk in to have a drink. It's a really classy place, with a comfortable seating area, and the cocktails are amazing. Price wise is...

What a strange concept to have the bathroom sink in the middle of the room. Since this was the only surface in the room to work, you had to clean off your toiletries to make room and it was not a confirmed workspace. Gotta be quite honest too that the hallway smelled like sewage during my entire 48 hour visit...

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
