“Another perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We got a last minute rate and given the size of room and facilities it represents great value for money.

Beautiful beds and decoration throughout. Fantastic cowshed products for use. Biscuits and tea in room. Room service breakfast prompt and delish. Love the place..

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.

Room Tip: Tiny Rooms are good value and well designed but genuinely tiny: best for solo travelers and overnigh...

I stayed in the Townhouse earlier this summer during the Olympic season and I just can't stop thinking about what a wonderful time I had whenever London is mentioned. So I'm finally here to make a review! The staff were so great. The hotel manager is fabulous and he has such a great reception staff, all the girls behind the desk were fabulous!! And gosh, the biscuits...irresistible today the least.

Room Tip: Each room is unique, and all beautiful!

I have stayed at Dean Street Townhouse probably half a dozen times in as many weeks. Great Location as smack bang in central Soho so great restautants, bars and members clubs on your doorstep. I tend to book the smaller rooms as generally just me and somewhere to lay my head but beds are huge and so comfy. There is a great Nespersso machine by the guest sofas at reception to sip on as you choose a DVD to take to your room. Rooms are clean and cozy and so much nicer than the majority of faceless 5* hotels in London. You never need a washbag as they thoughtfully include everything for 2 from toothbrushes to all Cowshed products. All rooms have retro Roberts DAM radio as well as Bose Soundock for your iPhone. Yet to try breakfast as not an early morning person but will try and get up that little bit earlier next time as by all accounts have been told it's one of London's finest.

Room Tip: On a budget the "Broom Cupboard" is fabulous and actually a split level mezzanine with tin...

I have stayed at the Dean Street Townhouse on three occasions, I would have stayed there more often but on my last two trips to London it was full, and that is just about my only complaint. First impressions are important and the reception staff go out of their way to welcome and make you feel at home. The rooms come in small, medium and large; I have yet to try the large, but for one person the small room is fine, the bathroom is large, very well designed wet room (I took pictures, I am going to copy it at home). The medium room comes with a standalone bath tub in the bedroom (perfect for sharing) and a wet room. The rooms are well decorated, very comfortable and unusually for English hotels, well heated. The hotel is great, but my favourite part of the Dean Street Townhouse is the restaurant and bar. It is just so full of life, so full of interesting, unpretentious people that you can (and I have) happily spend a night there solo and be sure to find engaging conversation and good company. The menu is simple but excellent, plenty of comfort food, whatever you do you must try the Haddock Souffle it is simply one of the best dishes you will find anywhere.

I can't comment on the hotel as we didn't stay but went for breakfast and it was lovely, the service was attentive although the tables are set too close together. we ordered toast to start, ham hock hash with a brown sauce reduction and the beetroot hash with a red wine reduction, both came with more toast, also ordered fresh Orange and pink grapefruit juice and Americano coffees. it was all delicious and felt fresh and different. also when we paid it was a pleasant surprise to notice they weren't out to wring every penny from the customer, both the extra toast, jams and fruit juices were all complimentary! highly recommended.

We stayed here last year and loved it so much booked again when we went to London last weekend. I love the Soho House Group in general as regardless of who you are they always make you feel like a star. We stayed in the same room (9) by request, which is one of thier small rooms, but it's right in the middle of the hotel so really quiet. It has the most comfy bed ever, a big eneough bathroom and more than enough room to move around for the weekend. The hotel itself is ideally situated for most of London.
They are exceptionally welcoming and no request is ever overlooked and they do their best to accomodate.
We only ate breakfast there, which again was fab and reasonablly priced. The bar of an evening is very buzzy and a great place for pre or post night out drinks with a great atmosphere.
All in all I haven't really a bad word to say about this place. We would definitely recommend and stay when we're next in London again.

Room Tip: room 9 is right in the middle so no noise, otherwise ask for a room at the back of the hotel
