My sister & I (from Australia & NZ) spent several days at LH in May. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. Our rooms (4th floor) were extremely well presented.- beds were comfortable and the L'Occitane toiletries much appreciated. Complimentary continental breakfast was available in the dining room and was more than adequate to set us up for... More

We booked a double room and found that it had little to no natural light. We found that a bit oppressive but to their credit, the management and staff were very obliging and gave us an upgrade to a suite (for a modest fee) and that was luxurious to say the least. A nice way to celebrate our 24th anniversary.... More

First impressions were that the staff were very friendly, we were checked in and informed that we had free continental breakfast in the morning, which we were unaware of. Our room was on the 5th floor and very private. Each floor is only accessible if you have a key card, meaning it is very secure. The room was lovely! It... More

We arrived at Leicester House for lunch and we were instantly made to feel very welcome. The decor was warm, intimate, without being on top of each other and stylish. The menu was a great variety of interesting dishes and the wine list was very comprehensive and reasonably priced. The highlights were the BBQ rump, perfectly cooked with excellent flavour,... More

We liked the look of the restaurant and decided to try it for supper. I was expecting typical tourist London fare and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the friendliness of the service. The food is Europe-meets-Asia, in little plates designed to share. We particularly liked the steak marinated with dried shrimp. Beautiful flavours.... More

This is a wonderful Hotel. Very small, very personal. The rooms have recently been refurbished, and are beautifully done. The food in the restaurant is very good. The Staff are all very attentive and cannot do enough for you. Already booked for next year.

Quirky little boutique hotel which I believe has just undergone a full scale refurb (everything looked brand spanking new). I was in room 503 - high ceilings, natural light and comfortably laid out. All super clean. The L'Occitane toiletry bag with pillow mist, lip balm, hand cream etc is a nice touch! The rate I booked was not advertised as... 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.
