The W hotel isn't your ordinary hotel and has a 'wow' factor. Our room was laid out with the basin being in the main room, which added to its unusual character. The staff were friendly and location in Leicester Square was a great location. Definitely worth a stay.

The location is very good and worth the money spent. The rooms are small but very clean and you just have to sleep there..., so no needs much more: London is so exciting, walk out and enjoy! If you want to relax, try the bar,not bad.

Dear AARDVARKKILLER, Well…. we really missed the boat on your stay didn’t we? We managed to properly mess up. I’m so sorry that this has happened.

I love W Hotel, all around the world, and London one is a very good one. Location is very conveninet, few steps from Piccadilly Circus. Standard rooms are small, but cozy and nice, but not well equipped in terms of amenities. A good choice in London!

Just had a great weekend in London, we love to stay at the W. The location is convenient, right in the heart of Leicester Square.

As a frequent biz traveler, and a loyal SPG platinum member, one expects good service. W Leicester Square exceeded my expectations. From a staff who recognized me as a patron (it's also a super hip spot), to the exceptional treatment, I feel compelled to give a resoundingly positive review. The people, and building are top notch.

Recently stayed for 2 weekend nights. The whole experience from checkin to check out was great. They have good security at the doors. It is on the square so there is the potential for having the lounge and bar overwhelmed with visitors. That would leave no room for guests to enjoy the hotel they are paying for. So with that...

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
