Stayed for 2 nights at this superb hotel. Fantastic location, right next door to Lyceum theatre - which was perfect as we had tickets for the Lion King. Staff excelled in looking after us. 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.

I booked this hotel as a special treat for my wife's birthday. The whole experience, from the booking to check-out was outstanding. I started the booking process online but decided to call and do it on the phone.

In the hustle and bustle of London, it's hard to find a suitable hotel for your needs - especially a central one. That is not to say there aren't many, but the expense and spaciousness is usually what worries the traveller in London. Not only are the hotels atrociously priced, but the sizes of the rooms are sometimes too tight... More

Afternoon Tea at One Aldwych Hotel was ...well ...to die for! Everything was so much fun that it brings out your inner child!

We had the Charlie and chocolate factory afternoon tea for my daughters 21st birthday before seeing the musical show. The surroundings , service and food were excellent but for the price we paid I was disappointed. We paid £45 each which included a cocktail or glass of champagne. The savoury course selection was not huge, 2 sandwich types plus small... More
