The hotel is in a nice location in the corner of Leicester square. Very convenient to catch the tube at Piccadilly or Leicester square giving access to most lines and perfect for the theaters. The service was excellent from the moment we entered. The rooms are a very good size with rainforest showers, comfortable beds and a full set of... More

This is a great and hip Hotel , in the best location in London. I have stayed in this hotel several times and I believe is one of the best located hotels in London. Everything you might need you have it within walking distance. It also has a great atmosphere and is great for partying. Totally recommended!

I stayed here 7 nights for work. The location was convenient being right inbetween the Picadilly and Leicester Square tube stops. It is very busy in the area at night, making walking fast challenging - there are a ton of tourists. There are a lot of restuarants in the area with a wide range of food choices. Plus you have...

The customer service of this hotel is absolutely atrocious. I wanted to postpone my booking for valid health reasons, but the hotel declined and is taking full payment for the entire stay as a fine. I have no words for this hotel. Make a few bucks from someone elses misfortune.

2nd time at this W and it's just great! Can walk anywhere of interest. Wonderful atmosphere in and around the hotel! The bar makes great drinks. But above all it's the staff who make it for me not just in doing their job but also just a quick chat to ask about our plans and how it's going!

We stayed in a cool corner room on the third floor for a film premier/my birthday, it's extremely glamorous and modern and the location is spot on. As we were in a corner it was very quiet and we had no issues sleeping. All the staff we spoke to were very friendly and helpful.

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.
