This hotel represents brilliant value for money in central London! If you want to be close to bustling Soho or ChinaTown but don't want to stay in an anonymous Hilton then this could be the place for you. it's been beautifully renovated with gorgeous muted tones and lovely furniture.

A small hotel at a great location, near everything, theatres, museums, great restaurants and the underground. Perfect, and not very expensive either compared to the other hotels located in the area. Free wifi that worked nicely, and breakfast included in the price of the room when we booked. Chinatown is very close and worth a look during the evenings, when... More

Spent one night at the Leicester House to enjoy an evening in the theatre district. We picked the hotel due to its location, room images and the restaurant. The only disappointing part was the restaurant. The location is fantastic. At first, when walking up from Leicester Square, you get a bit nervous because you move past the M+M shop and... More

If just like us, you fancy the lively atmostphere until late in the evening, shopping, and asian food, then Leicester House is THE place to stay in London.

So lucky to have found this reasonably priced, modern and impeccably clean hotel in the theatre district. So many extras made this a very pleasurable stay. L' Occitane products, bathrobe, slippers and even a brolly. Not to mention the free cocktail in the bar. For history buffs it was this hotel that Johanne Strauss stayed in on his first visit...

The room pictures on the site really are reflective of the rooms. They are done up beautifully and have a reasonable amount of space for a London hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the soundproofing was excellent! Great location and friendly staff. The meal in the restaurant was surprisingly lovely as was the complimentary continental breakfast.

Stayed at this newly renovated hotel which had the friendliest staff and service. A highly recommended place to stay if you want to be in the middle of London commotion! Hotel also has its own restaurant and a bar which serves great food and drinks.

Our family of 3 stayed at Leicester House Hotel in June for 3 nights - pre cruise. The hotel is nearby tube stops (in fact we took the tube from LHR to Picadilly and then walked a few blocks to the hotel). And being close to Picadilly means that it is close to many attractions. Our room was newly remodeled... More

Great location, great value and great room (surprisingly quiet - no outside noise), creative decor and nice staff. The only small comment is that it takes ages for the water to get hot - so you may need to run shower/bath tap for a bit longer. Definitely one to stay in again.

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.
