Stayed only one night to celebrate a birthday, having stayed serveral time previously we knew what to expect, except the fact that a refurbishment was underway. We were not informed of this via the booking website so we're a little surprised to be told, after we had handed over payment, the breakfast dining room was closed and we would need... More

This is my 4th stay, and the 2nd one this year, here. The location has been the reason for my stays as it's a short walk from the Leicester Square tube station, which is convenient for the Piccadilly line from Heathrow, and just opposite Chinatown. The place was undergoing renovation when I stayed here in January, and is almost completed... More

Perfect location if you're one of those people who likes to stay out late. Lots of close by pubs, theaters, restaurants and extremely close to all options for public transportation. Our room was large, comfortable, and although we were on the 5th floor at the front of the hotel, our room was relatively quiet. We did hear street noise once... More

Booked hotel during 1 week prior to arrival. At no point was there communication on the website or via email that the hotel was under a lengthy renovation. The improvements will be great once complete, but was only told of the noise of construction and lack of restaurant (prepaid full English breakfast reduced to a continental breakfast in rooms with...

My son and I had a lovely twin room at the back of the hotel , it was quiet , something I had been concerned about as hotel so central . Super helpful... More

I thought it was strange when we arrived that the lobby was very small and that the reception desk looked a bit makeshift. Then we read the note in the lift that the hotel was undergoing building work and that there was no bar or restaurant facilities and that we should expect building noise from 8am to 8pm. When we...

Wanted to stay central for a couple of nights and boy did I! So convenient - just jump on the Bakerloo line from Paddington to Piccadelly and walk to the hotel in a couple of minutes. The reception looks kind of temporary, but once you enter your room it's heaven. I asked for a quiet room and it was! The... More

This hotel is perfect for getting to and from Paddington Station, it only took 5 minutes to get to and from there. The staff were very friendly and even looked after our luggage after check out, which was greatly appreciated. The room we were staying in was big enough and had all we needed. There were only one problem we... More

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.
