2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best

Welcome to London’s cultured, independent hotel at the beating heart of city life.

One Aldwych is one of the very few hotels in London (or indeed the world) that can say it is truly independent. As such, everything is created and curated to delight.

Stepping into the lobby of this singularly beautiful building is to step into a moment in history, dressed up in style. Built in 1905 as the home of the Morning Post newspaper, it still inspires spirited conversation and connection. Today, the building’s Art Nouveau curves and stylish flair sit easily with the modern luxuries of this contemporary, forward-thinking hotel.

Known as the hotel for Londoners at heart, wherever they might be from, One Aldwych is at the centre of Covent Garden, London’s most exciting neighbourhood. For the curious minded, you have access to the finest entertainment and cultural adventures, with galleries, museums, West End theatres and the famous Royal Opera House on the doorstep. For those in need of rest and retreat, what about being cocooned in the Health Club, or having your favourite drink brought to your favourite corner of The Library, a private sanctuary from the streets.

Designed to be more than just a place to lay your head, each suite and bedroom embraces a stylish character that pays homage to the sense of modern, independent Britishness that One Aldwych represents. Think of the resident team as your friends with all the best recommendations for brunch, ballet, boutiques, exhibitions and little-known corners of the city you'll love.

Closer to home, enjoy the time-honoured British tradition of afternoon tea served on the mezzanine or with a magical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory twist. Later there’s dinner in Indigo, a restaurant celebrating British independent producers before lingering a little longer with drinks in the vivacious Lobby Bar.

An excellent guest-centric experience on the Strand with a short walking distance to the heart of the theatre district. The staff provide service excellence from the time you arrive until the time of your departure.

We've stayed at many hotels across the world & this was the best one we've been to. The suite we had was luxurious. Every amenity. Heated floors in the bathroom, comfortable bed & furniture, 2 large TV's, well stocked mini bar. If you become a member of Leading Hotels of the World (just sign up, it's free), you get complimentary breakfast & early/late check-in. The hotel restaurant has gluten free breakfast, afternoon tea & lunch/dinner. Such a treat for myself, who has a gluten allergy to be able to enjoy a meal without any worries.

I’m not normally particularly gushing with reviews but we were completely blown away by One Aldwych. We only stayed one night, the first night of our honeymoon, but it was by far the best hotel stay I have ever had. The hotel is beautiful, location amazing, but it’s the staff that made it so special - we were upgraded without realising it and had the most incredible Bridge View Suite, it was perfection. We also had wine and nibbles arrive as a congratulations from the hotel. Every staff member we had any interaction with was friendly and attentive, but not over the top or overly servile, it was spot on. Everything was spectacular, the attention to detail just phenomenal. If you get an opportunity to stay there, do it!

Our stay was perfect, thank you! The service was excellent - every member of staff was friendly and helpful throughout the hotel. Our room was lovely and the wonderful service by housekeeping was much appreciated. As a Coeliac (gluten free) I also greatly appreciated being able to eat safely and have a “proper” hotel experience - thank you! Indigo was a delight, the food was delicious and so well presented. Again, it was the warmth and attentiveness of the staff at One Aldwych that made our stay so special and we hope to stay again soon!

We stayed in the hotel for a night without our 3 year old a few days after our wedding in Sept 2022. It’s a very plush hotel as it is, but they very generously upgraded our room to an amazing suite looking down towards Waterloo Bridge, and then a little while later brought up wine, fruits, cake and honeycomb, the latter made from honey from the rooftop hive. Urban rooftop beekeeping is a real thing, I now know. That was a nice and unexpected treed touch and made us feel very special. It’s a luxurious hotel, perfectly situated for for the theatre-land, Covent Garden, Royal Opera House and the bars and restaurants of the West End. The team are very warm and welcoming we felt very well looked after.

We went for the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea. It was for an occasion, but not necessary to the experience. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed, they held out bags for us too so we didn't have to have them at the table. The tables were spaced nicely so it didn't feel cramped and it was decorated in such a way that just highlighted everything about the place. The afternoon tea was amazing! Couldn't finish it all, even on an empty stomach, but the vegan option we had was perfect. Presented so nicely and the flavours were incredible! The gentlemen looking after us were very caring and would only check up on you when required, not bothering too much but very easy to talk to. The cocktails were really nice as well and the selection of teas were broad too with some interesting flavours. Overall, I couldn't fault anything about the meal. There were families with children there too and the waiters were making them feel at ease and offering them a lot of their time to make sure they were happy and with a small joke here and there. I would certainly go again, especially for the price and what you get compared to some others around London.
