I reserved the Sanctum Soho Hotel for a one-night stay for two colleagues last week based on reviews here and from the images on their website.
Was very surprised to see said colleagues in my office on Monday laughing their heads off trying to explain the ambiance of the hotel: bling, skulls, heavy metal, decadent baroque and rock n'roll, jacuzzi in the bar, were a few of the adjectives I managed to catch through the guffawing.
While they were very happy with the location and the facilities (comfortable bedding, calm rooms, helpful staff), they were a bit taken aback by the decor and don't recommend the hotel for business travel.
I, however, would like to check it out for my next London weekend!
