“Great new place ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Allways up to try new venues ... this time South place which is convinently located - if you do business though ...

Rooms very nice - spacious - modern design, loved the bathroom, huge walk in double shower, cool tub...

Eletric gimmicks all there - if a bit "overengineered though..." - electric blinds clever and working (for a change....)

Gym frist class - all equipment top of teh range .... free earphones ... Nice gesture ...

Rooftop restaurant 8/10 .. very nice staff - kids no problem at all ...terrace outside for drinks and smoke (this is if one needs that...)

The onlz area to improve would be speed of breakfast ... as it`s all a la carte .. which i like a lot really ... but then please oil your new machine a bit ... lots of people take ages to get your eggs done ... - so if in a hurry day starts unnecesarry frantic ...

Overall great experience -- would come again in a whiff ... - not cheap though .. but was is cheap in London ....

Room Tip: Up up and away ....

Great feedback and insight, ever so much appreciated.

We have been timing the speed of our breakfasts so that things do move a bit quicker for business travellers (and those with kids).

Hope to see you back, we're only 2 months old and are working hard toward an unequalled guest experience.

Best wishes,

Sarah

The concept of the Boutique city hotel is a rather tired affair so what a pleasure to experience the eclectic charm of South Place. I have now stayed on both a weekend and working week and the hotel offers excellent service, location and ambience. It is perhaps the last element that was so pleasantly surprising. Well-appointd rooms with original artwork and a bar area more commonly found in Ginza or the better establishments in Manhatten. Get there soon while there is still room at the bar.

We ate at the Angler restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. For a shared starter we went for the seafood platter which included deliciously fresh langoustines, oysters, clams and crab (although I believe the content of this starter can vary). The chef had recommended the Ray Wing for mains which I thought was superb, although my partner ordered the Fish Pie which was absolutely beautiful. Not being much of a drinker I was most happy for the sommelier to recommend a glass Australian white to accompany my meal, the service in general being welcoming and friendly rather than overly formal. I never had to look around around to get a member of staff's attention, they were there in an instant. My only regret about staying up in the bar downstairs till 3am (by which time it was still full - on weeknight) drinking tequila Old Fashioned cocktails was that I never really got to appreciate the room, which had a lovely modern, minimal décor and an incredibly soft bed I instantly fell asleep on. I didn't have time for breakfast the next day but will look forward to trying this next time. South Place is definitely primed to be a legendary spot it eat, drink and kick back.

Room Tip: I only stayed in the one room but did get rather confused with the key pass for the door. When you s...

I chose to stay at South Place Hotel during the craziness of London Fashion Week [ 14th - 16th September 2012] . Safe to say, the hotel passed with flying colours.

Having frequented London since a young age, I have seen countless Hotels, Restaurants and Bars come and go. With South Place you are welcomed to a new trend-setting and chic leader.

Stunning staff with impeccable standards of service - all happy to go the extra mile. One can't help but feel refreshed before take-off!

Luxurious Rooms containing signature art pieces that surpass even the highest expectations in size and comfort - with the latest technology including iPod dock and Bang and Olufsen Television + Communication. Super fast WiFi. Ticking all the boxes.

Relax with afternoon drinks in the exclusive secret garden, before exquisite dinner in the roof terrace restaurant - and with a late night bar featuring the well-heeled of London - it is clear South Place is here to stay.

An amazing achievement in hip design, style and timeless class!

I look forward to making South Place my new second home in London. Ideal for Business, Leisure, Family and Romantic stays.

Thank you for taking the time to write such detailed feedback! It sounds like you took full advantage of the South Place experience and perhaps attended our Fashion Week bash? We have plans to carry on planning more exciting weekend events for our guests, with New Year's Eve going to be a particularly exciting event.

We hope you'll return soon so that we can continue to be your London base.

Loved everything about the hotel- the staff, their outfits, the art, the food, the rooms...and the secret outdoor garden bar and roof terrace restaurant, beyond gorgeous. After enjoying the party atmosphere in their bar, reception even allowed us a 4pm checkout! We'll be staying at south place hotel next time we're in london- we fly into london city, a 15 minute taxi ride from our new favourite place.

my girlfriend and i spent a friday night here a few weeks back and have to say it was an experience to remember. our room was spot on.....the perfect balance of style, comfort and bang & olufsen, and while we were both a bit tender in the morning the breakfast smoothies were a godsend after a great night in the bar. staff were great, knew exactly what they were talking about and looked like they were having a ball doing so. very dapper, too. and if you're not averse to putting a bit of party into your stay, the resident dj chap has some of the finest slabs of disco i've ever heard in a hotel.

oh, the food and cocktails......my word. lobster macaroni!!! we'll be back.

We stayed this weekend and found the hotel excellent. It was in a great location very close to Liverpool Street and Moorgate; the hotel was stylish, the rooms comfortable and the power points were in all the right places! Even though the hotel is in the middle of the City it was quiet and peaceful and the staff were very helpful. Wi fi throughout was a great plus, and the first floor cocktail bar was a lovely place to wind down. Breakfast was a la carte and very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.
