We attempted to use the extremely average AVIOS system to book the Savoy Hotel. Seems that the Savoy and AVIOS computers were out of sync.. This is not our first experience of this problem. We were asked if we had a second choice. As we were going to the Savoy Theatre, we picked One Aldwych as a close location. Couldn't... More

We stayed here to celebrate my friends birthday. Excellent communication from booking to departure. The staff are lovely, helpful and accommodating - they even noted it was my friends birthday and a bottle of wine and cake were waiting for us on our return to the room. Spa experience was a joy as well. All these elements together with the... More

The hotel is located at the corner of Strand and Aldwych. It is in a very central location for Covent Garden, the Thames, Trafalgar square etc. The staff is very professional and the room was very clean. One thing that really bothered us is that they cleanign staff leaves the windows wide open when they clean the room. This is... More

I have been in the One Aldwych mid-July 2014, during a press trip in London. As soon as we arrived, our room was upgraded to a suite, with a wonderful view on Aldwych, and a kitchenette with complimentary nespresso and newspapers. Nice fact: the lobby is always full of Londoners, from breakfast unitl late evening, which makes it very pleasant!... More

Very polite and helpful, nothing seemed a bother or too much trouble. Would recommend in a heart beat. Dined at Indigo within the hotel which was... More

Great little spot. Have stayed several times over the years and always good (surprisingly quiet at night too), and whenever in town, tend to meet contacts in the bar. Its easy to find for folk and the bar area is lovely, bright and roomy. Highly recommend.
