We have stayed here before and I would say don't be put off by the hit and miss reviews but it does depend what you are looking for, if you want kinky/quirky/party/fun then yes if you want quiet/family/civilised then I say no. We were not looking for quiet! Went her for hubbys birthday, have been here before but got a... More

Service is friendly but the afternoon tea is bland and overpriced, the best advice is to avoid this place. For 125 pounds you'll have a few sliders with industrial buns for two and some low quality wine.

Great afternoon tea, friendly staff and quirky design. The food was exciting and tasty. Really good vegetarian options. You Can book in advance for discount on the tea. Loved the roof terrace bar and jacuzzi. Would definitely be coming back.

Stayed for the one night. Can imagine this would be a great home away from home for a stay in the heart of London. Unique rooms very well kept. Friendly welcoming staff. Quite high price but probably in line with other hotels of the standard and location.

Very disappointing stay. We were meant to have a deluxe room but it was by no means that. I'm sure we had a standard room. No turn down service in the evening and no sign of any staff apart from one receptionist. Chipped toilet seat, pealing bath and every time you opened the shower screen it hit the sink. The... More

Clean room with a quirky vibe, bed, sheets, towels all comfy+++ Turn down service. Lovely bathroom, lots of hot water and good water pressure. Free wifi, all amenities you could need, except agree a coffeemaker or kettle in the room, would be useful. In room hairstyling available. Location is absolutely amazing and unbeatable; 5 min to oxford circus or piccadily... More

I had high hopes from staying here as the website sounded and looked great plus a friend had said that it was a very quirky hotel with character. The check area is very small but the lady was pleasant enough although she did have a chat with another member of staff in French whilst we were trying to check in.... More

What a great place to stay! A classy boutique hotel close to Piccadilly Circus, with a cool party lounge on the roof; stylish bedrooms and comfy beds; good food and friendly people looking after you. We'll be back - if only to collect the iPad charger we left plugged into the wall in room 204!

Stayed at the Sanctum Hotel overnight after a party, I usually come to the hotel every year for the rooftop bar during Summer which has a brilliant atmosphere and it's easy to meet people. This time my friends and I splurged to stay the night, but rooms here certainly don't come at a budget! The lesser expensive rooms, known as... More

Upon arrival 3 staff manned the tiny reception and all carried on talking to one person in the reception and didn't even acknowledge our existence for quite a few minutes. Not good on manners. We went to our Junior Suite on the fifth floor. Our door was opposite the door to the rooftop terrace which didn't look too good for... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
