I have stayed here a couple of times on business due mainly to the hotels location and also I am an SPG Platinum member and it is most probably one of the better Starwood Properties in London. The rooms are clean tidy but small, the food and beverage concept is excellent and I would recommend them. The lighting in the... More

How is it possible to stay in that hotel? As a SPG lifetime gold member, I'm always happy to stop in a starwood property to get a drink, even if i'm not staying in that particular hotel. We came here with friends to get a drink at the bar late in the evening. Security officers are rude, people here are... More

Great position, breakfast and staff. Room too small and stretches the word compact to its limits. I was sharing with my sister and as much as we are close there was very little privacy when the toilet is in a cupboard a metre away! The sink in the middle of the room is impractical and unattractive, felt like the bed... More

Modern hotel located at the heart of Leicester Square close to Picadilly Circus. Ideally located for the main entertainment areas of China Town, Soho, Leicester Square and Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square. The modern design of the reception areas can feel a little clinical. The one design feature I did like were the fires encased in glass cases. The bedrooms... More

Stayed here a few weeks back and the hotel itself is lovely BUT can be very noisy at times. But you would expect that staying so centrally. What you don't expect is to get conned in to using a "car service" that costs more than a London black taxi. As we waited for our car to the airport, a taxi... More

I needed somewhere to stay close to home for the night while my flat and thought I would try somewhere very central for a treat in my own city. The hotel does feel more like a nightclub when you enter, but it is so that is no surprise. When I went up to reception they were extremely welcoming and friendly.... More

An uber cool venue for wannabe A List celebrities. A place for tailored jacket, black T shirt, designer jeans and that special little dress. Service is a Hollywood "Hi" and first names only. Keys are so last century and the sensor cards keep security dead tight. Hollywood bulb room numbers shine out from the deep nightclub darkness. Wall-to-wall mirrors and... More

We really enjoy this hotel because of it's location, great atmosphere, and wonderful customer service. This hotel feels centrally located - we made all our friends come to us since all the bars and restaurants we wanted to visit were all nearby. Upon check in, the front desk staff welcomed us back.

I read some comments about the noise from the street but to be honest our room was quiet and comfortable, we stay on the 6th floor.

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.
