This Hotel is vey quirky, from the mood lighting to very large wet room bathrooms. We were on the fourth floor and never heard any noise as in other reviews. If you like trendy, you will love here. The king size bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning was very effective. This is an ideal location for theatre, eating...

A friend an I came here to catch up and enjoy a classic English institution - Afternoon Tea. The hotel in right in the middle of the bustling West End, sandwiched between Leicester Square and Chinatown , but inside is an oasis of calm and sophistication. The setting is very contemporary and comfortable and we spend almost 2 hours chatting...

This hotel is everything you would expect from the W brand and more. Location. Location. Location! WOW!

He was beyond helpful throughout our stay. I had ordered...

If you want to stay right in the middle of ground zero for tourists, this is ok but not for me. Hotel is nice but trendy in a way that feels outdated even a couple years after it opened. Staff was nice and helpful. For one night while passing through, it was great. For a long stay in london for...

For context, I write as an SPG-Platinum . . . and this was a miserable experience. I used "suite upgrade" nights for my stay, and was given a great space . . . that turned out to be directly over the lobby-nightclub.

You will like this hotel if you are looking for a super new, ultra modern hotel, very very different from the typical one. Just to give you an idea: the lobby has a disco ball on the roof, the corridors outside the room are quite dark, the number of the room written in a "glittery" style on the room door's....

This is the most modern hotel I have ever been in. Technology throughout the room, shower, toilet, sink and room decoration. Location is the heart of the theater district, yet the price was fair.

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.
