I was over to London for the weekend and decided to choose a place that's more convenient. W London is definitely one of the hotel that's super convenient. Walking out immediately is Chinatown, where you can have the famed Roast Duck from Four Seasons. If you continue walking along Wardour Street up north, there are ample great cafes, restaurants that... More

Had a one-night stay here on my own after a cancelled flight. The room was quite small, but new and very efficient. It was terrifically set up, with outlets and USB ports everywhere, and a nice central island which served as sink, desk, table, and towel rack. The bed and linens were very comfortable, as always with W. The shower... More

W hotel jumping on bandwagon of some additional revenue-cakes dry, lazy and non indulgent - opposite to the description which sounds interesting A vanilla cupcake, hard scone and stake sandwiches ( left our therefore bread dry) does not constitute an afternoon tea Service poor and crumbs all over the seats Cocktails at W - yes Afternoon tea a definite no

I have stayed at this hotel since it opened at least once a year, and was always happy. However this time I leave with a bitter sensation, due to the incompentence of the staff, concierge had no idea of which clubs to reccommend and no insider lnowledge, would just google it.

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.
