“Wry fancy meets Luxury caress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

There is an Alice in Wonderland feel as you enter the lobby of the Sanderson London. A pair of headset strutting young bellmen smile at you as though their trousers could be tearaways. Millennial girls swing from 60's basket chairs and you can ride the famed cosmic elevator and possibly meet, as I did, a freshly rosy, gorgeous, furry specimen of the male sex all dished out in a terry towel robe riding from the spa back up to his room and you also might be forced to exclaim "I'm I had a dream like this once", to which his rose face might burst out laughing and announced "Touche!" even though you are both over (shhhhh!) a certain age and far too exhausted to do anything about it. Still, the fantasy is there for the intrepid. The Sanderson has just the right amount of suites - my sleigh bed had pillows on both ends which made me think of a Finnish speed skating team for some reason and the bathroom looked a little like a mad surgeons playground. On a functional level the beds were perfect, views lovely, room service was excellent, breakfast just fantastic, long bar very lively. I adore the Sanderson. It's the type of hotel you promise yourself you will check into for a few months under the excuse of writing a great novel but really it is just to have a fabulous time.

Stayed here for 4 days on business. Was a nice hotel in a great London location. Didn't try to bar, club or Mad Hatters tea. Room was very nice and comfortable. Good noise shielding. Was very quiet. Room service was very good.

Seems to be priced similar to other nice hotels for this area of London.

I've been coming since it opened and never disappointed . Carl , the mixologist in the Purple Bar , was superb and his Mescal Martini a smokey delight . The room , hospitality and service was all excellent as ever . Good breakfast too .

Great beds, quiet, hopping bar downstairs, great concierge service, good gym. Close to many attractions. Showers are funny, they spray all over the floor. Nice private after hours bar when you want to keep going.

Great hotel- one of my favourites in London. Staff at the long bar are always very helpful. The rooms service can sometimes be slow but it is worth waiting for. Good location and central to good bars and shops. Would recommend to young people. Modern rooms but still have a luxury finish

loved this hotel its eccentric but stylish, its a shame they have closed the malaysian food court as the food was spectacular. The staff have a fine attention to detail and addressed you by name on each occasion they saw you in the hotel . Strange picture of a dog on the bedroom ceiling but each to their own. The Alice in wonderland bar is an interesting concept , watching A 6ft3 american sitting on a miniature stool was amusing , where I wonder was the mad hatter, oh yes that would have been the barman !!!!

Sanderson’s indoor/outdoor lobby is a layered and sophisticated environment that is totally original. ... more   less
