Spent a week at One Aldwych after an absence of several years. It was superb. Deluxe room worth the additional cost as lower categories smallish. Package now includes an excellent full breakfast. Hotel has a cozy feel---it's small and the staff's very attentive. Location is excellent--- walking distance to most spots in Central London. Room was blissfully quiet. We could... More

One Aldwych is a stylish hotel. The lobby bar is excellent for drinks and during the day. The staff have a real friendliness to them. The rooms are well sized and furnished. Particularly impressive is the noise insulation - I was one floor up above a busy street and you virtually don't hear a thing. The gym is extremely well... More

We had been at a fashion show at London Fashion Week at the ME Hotel and popped over here for drinks on Saturday afternoon in the Lobby Bar. I had a La Dolce Vita. It was incredible. The service was perfect. The atmosphere was lovely. What a fantastic place for a little cocktail in the afternoon!

We came here for pre dinner drinks on my 30th birthday having had it highly recommended. The atmosphere is as unique as the cocktail menu and we were made to feel special by the excellent table service. Highly recommended if you can afford it!

Many years ago I bought one of their alarm clock great but difficult to set so I asked the concierge to put a new battery and he... More

I am gluten free and my friend is nut free so not many establishments cater so well for us as the One Aldwych did last weekend. My gluten free finger sandwiches were top quality and the substitutes for the savoury tarts were imaginative - variety of dressed tomatoes in a shot glass and a waldorf salad in a shot glass....

Many cocktails in the bar and evenings in the Cinema at One Aldwych, I finally got the chance to stay. For a week, no less. Without a doubt, the best hotel i've stayed at in London. Almost unchanged in 15 years (and that is meant as nothing less than a huge compliment) -Timeless and yet absolutely contemporary. Superb and wonderfully... More

Beautiful room with beautiful view over Waterloo Bridge. The room has everything you could wish for, Nespresso machine, lovely bedding, robes etc etc. Every member of staff we encountered was...
