Attended a private birthday party booking on the rooftop terrace. Party atmosphere with live music and hot tub. However very unimpressed with security. Despite being on the guestlist and the birthday person having paid entrance for all attendees in advance, on arrival at 6.30pm the bouncer advised that the bar was at capacity (it was clearly half full). Same bouncer... More

Fairly non descript hotel from the outside makes way on entry to a fairly small and bland lobby area. Once checked in however, you find your room to be very different, almost boutiquey but very comfortable. The downstairs bar is ok, but the bar area on the roof that never seems to close is superb. During the warmer summer months... More

Quirky hotel with an alternative glam vibe. Rooms were stylish and original if a little bit too dark (not good for girls doing make up...!) Rooftop bar had a private party so unfortunately we didn't get to try that. Good for a girlie weekend.

This hotel is certainly refreshingly different. The location is amazing, on the edge of Soho and within walking distance of my favourite bits of London. Very friendly staff do a great job of greeting guests, and nothing seems too much trouble. The decor is amazing, very tastefully orchestrated with public areas and even the toilets adorned with fabulous pop art,... More

The Sanctum is a decent choice for a fun getaway to London. The room (a standard double) was well appointed, very comfy bed, and being on a lower floor, was very quiet. The overall decor and feel is exactly what they put forth on their website - rock and roll kitsch with a touch of luxury to smooth things over.... More

The Sanctum Soho is in a fantastic location. Reasonable walking distance to shopping, tourist attractions, and tons of restaurants. The room was reasonably sized. We stayed on a lower level floor, as we'd read reviews about noise from the roof deck and it was quiet. The roof deck was a bit overpriced. Also, they do put a hold of 300... More

Booked the Sanctum for my wedding anniversary and birthday. This type of hotel, small luxury boutique is right up our street normally. On arrival we were greeted by the most charismatic concierge I've ever met and the look of the hotel hit all the right buttons. We were shown our room and explained all about the hotels features, perfect! We... More

Do not be tempted by an offer into booking a night at this hotel. You will get a room the size of a postage stamp, a noisy party on the roof, and they will put charges on your credit card for minibar items you haven't used. I didn't even open the minibar! There will be no wardrobe, no tea and... More

We had a Saturday night here and loved it. From the minute we arrived. The suite was stunning and the staff were excellent especially the Scottish concierge who could not do anymore for you and has an oustanding personality. The food looked lovely and next time we will dine here. There was a party on the roof terrace and they... More

Firstly this Hotel is in an amazing position! You really couldn't get better for Regent St/Oxford St /Soho......... Must mention Marty the Concierge, such a warm welcome and really friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The Hotel itself is small but has a nice bar/lounge area and the Suite we stayed in was really lovely, some people have commented rooms... More

Good Afternoon Emma, Thank-you for taking the time to share your views regarding your stay. Having read your words, I am are aware that we had a external function taking place on the roof terrace, and have since received feedback that their guests did not behave as we would expect. Our hotel residents are always our top priority and we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Today’s rock’n’roll hotel is less about threats of incidental bodily harm and more about a glamorously decadent atmosphere, and the new model is a place like the Sanctum Soho.Here it means a dash of modern minimalism, a sprinkling of baroque opulence, and an emphasis on the darker end of the color palette. The in-room electronics are totally up to date, while some throwback touches are retained for atmosphere’s sake. It’s a twenty-four-hour hotel with a liberal, tolerant service concept; what you want, you’ll get, without so much as a raised eyebrow. In that, it’s not so fundamentally different from some of London’s more conservative luxury hotels — it just feels naughtier. ... more   less
