4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I stayed for 3 nights on a recent business trip. Check in was efficient and professional. The room was of a good size (junior suite) and the bathroom was very nice with a double sink, rain shower as well as a large tub. The bed was really comfortable however I wasn't so sure about the mint green leather sofa in... More

the building has been brilliantly restored keeping many features from the past but ensuring every conceivable modern comfort. A great swimming pool. The staff are more helpful and friendly than they are efficient. Despite the hemmed in nature of the building it makes great use of natural light.

Without a doubt, the best hotel in London would be the Cafe Royal!! From start till end, everything is organized in an efficient and elegant way. Upon arrival I was upgraded to a spacious room with a great view to Piccadilly Circus. All facilities in the room are at the highest level, as one may expect from a top luxury... More

This hotel is extremely expensive but everything has been taken care of. It is not probably for everyone as rooms are decorated quite minimalistic and they are not that opulent as you might think once you get in to the reception. Rooms are filled with latest technology, you have all sorts of connections and bluetooths and plugs everywhere. The location... More

We stayed for three nights on a shopping/ theatre/sightseeing break and were absolutely thrilled with the hotel. The location is of course ideal, the comfort and decor of the rooms sublime and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff faultless. Will certainly look forward to staying again in the future.

We stayed here one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel's interior is absolutely stunning with lots of beautiful decorative historic details and some of the loveliest flower arrangements I have seen. The rooms are a dramatic contrast to the hotel's public spaces - incredibly modern with super high-tech finishings including a wonderful waterfall shower and marble bathroom with a... More

Don't know whether the service at a Hotel can get much better. Great work! Food it top notch too; the High Tea, the Lounge on Floor 1, and the downstairs restaurant! Highly recommend a stay here. The chocolates at the cafe are also worth the calories !!!!

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.
