It's all to easy to miss Dean Street Townhouse. The entrance is unmarked, the name is overshadowed by the eponymous restaurant and until recently, the building housed a branch of the unloveable Pitcher And Piano . Yet that might be its charm. Once you're through the door, you're in a genuine boutique hotel in the absolute centre of London. Low lights, overstuffed sofas, shabby chic surfaces and the heady incense of scented candles make a dramatic contrast with the buzzy, erratic Soho streets outside. The rooms are an assured mix of Georgian style and modern amenities: four poster beds and framed etchings meet rainfall showers and radiation-strength broadband. Nick Jones' service ethos runs through the property, which is part of the Soho House empire: broadband is free, laundry takes as little as two hours, the bathrooms are stocked with a pharmacy of Cowshed products, and travel sized amenities. It's probably the only hotel apart from the Four Seasons where you could turn up with nothing but the clothes on your back and leave the following morning clean and refreshed. The mainly eastern European staff are a delight. Rooms start with the accurately named Tiny, which is probably the smallest fully-equipped space for a human outside of the international space program. By the time you've traded up to a medium, you have a four poster bed, a claw foot tub in the bedroom and enough 18th century finery to live like Tristram Shandy in a dressing gown. The hotel is admittedly short on communal facilities, but you have the Dean Street Townhouse open from breakfast to midnight next door, the whole of Soho on your doorstep, and no chance of an orthodontists' conference to harsh your mellow. Pro-tip for fashionistas: the hotel is VERY popular for London fashion week, and if you're lucky enough to be a Soho House member, the discount on the rooms is insanely good value. Highly recommended.
Tiny Rooms are good value and well designed but genuinely tiny: best for solo travelers and overnigh...
