I just spent one night at One Aldwych for a short business trip in London, and as always, everything was perfect. Great location, superb service and very nice atmosphere. And I took the very practical plastic travel bag they offered. I'll definitely go back again.

This was the first time we went to One Aldwych and I would definitely go again as it was a classic dining experience. The waiters and waitresses were charming. Attentive and informative without being intrusive. Quiet environment but not spookily so! This was a more expensive lunch overall (£40 per head) than I would normally pay (£20-25) but this was...

Such a beautiful and unique property. The lobby bar is always buzzing with an interesting crowd, but it's pretty easy to get a table. The innovative Charlie & the Chocolate Factory-themed afternoon tea is superb and definitely worth booking in advance. Rooms are modern and clean, though on the smaller side, as with many city hotels. The mattresses might be...

We had a wonderful stay at the One Aldwych. The staff were friendly, efficient, polite and attentive, and the room was beautifully presented. The pool and gym facilities were excellent, and we enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant. I will certainly recommend it, and plan to return.

This hotel is exquisite. The level of service is off the scale. From the second you get out of your car/taxi upon arrival, until the moment to get back in it to leave you feel incredibly special, but not harassed. The hotel is very elegant, modern, super comfortable, and a fabulous location with you wish to go to theatre/opera.

Noise from the other rooms was a bit annoying. However, overall, I got satisfied with the stay at One Aldwych. Staff is very kind, room is clean and good size, meal is nice, location is excellent. I would like to recommend to friends.

rooms are small and average...tv's need updating...entertainment system should be top notch, and it's not...this hotel has the potential to be a special place, one that would be a choice of both professionals and for personal reasons, but...the new restaurant was excellent.

Regular guest at Claridges, tried your property because of the pool, which I enjoyed. Introduction to the room was way too rushed and it took me the entire stay to figure out all of its workings.

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden.
