2023 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.

Traveled here for my first trip to LONDON with my friend. Our Room was a Studio Suite which is very roomy with a beautiful view being that it is a corner room with 3 large windows. The amenities and attention to detail were nice: Greeted with a personalized welcome note with fruits and truffles, Fresh flowers in the room, a minibar full of complimentary drinks and snacks that are refreshed daily, bathrobe and slippers, a DYSON hair dryer, outlets for both US and European plugs so I didn’t need my adapter, heated bathroom floors and plenty of storage space. I would HIGHLY recommend One Aldwych if you intend to stay in Covent Garden. The Customer Service is top notch. The location is located in the theater/dinning district along the STRAND. Very close to public transport and walking distance to many restaurants, cafes and attractions. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed my stay. I will definitely be back!

Hotel's Favorite
One Aldwych is an absolute One off, and One of a kind. As a hotel, it's classy, clean and cultured. The rooms are interior designed for comfort and luxury, the staff are kind and efficient. The art is contemporary and inspiring. The pool is UV cleaned (no bitter chlorine stinging your eyes) and the gym small but well stocked. The mini bar is a treat with the added novelty of quality wine in a can. Sorry to gush superlatives, but you'll love this hotel. I cannot rate it highly enough. It's also in the centre of town and ideal for a stroll back from an event. Thank you to the team at One Aldwych.

We enjoyed a luxurious stay in a beautiful suite with fantastic views down to Waterloo Bridge. One Aldwych provided stellar service and comfort to make us feel really special. We could have happily spent a week exploring the suite and the hotel alone!

Wonderful hotel. We loved the fact that many of them staff remembered our name, and it was a lovely touch Nicoleta, the maid, took the time to chat to us. Beautiful room and we loved the inclusive minibar. Amenities well thought through and resulted in a very comfortable stay. Really enjoyed the breakfast, perfectly cooked and again served by a professional, friendly and basically amazing team. Thanks everyone! We really hope to be back.

Thanks for upgrading us to a suite (room 300). Great space. And great that room service breakfast, minibar and newspapers were included. Will definitely stay with you again. Pricing was a bit higher than we normally spend, but it was worth it.

I had a very enjoyable overnight stay. The service was impeccable in the lobby bar and my breakfast was great. I will hopefully return again later on this year for another theatre visit as the location is ideal.

We had an incredible stay at One Aldwych. What made it so good was the amazing service - everyone we came across were so friendly and professional. The room was so quiet considering the busy London Road outside, had everything we needed in the room and lots of lovely touches to make it feel special. We were staying for a celebration and we would definitely stay again. Thank you so much!!
