The W Hotel has been my preferred hotel for years. I loved the fact that I could always find a trendy room, a young crowd, a hip vibe and a great environment. This hotel has all of that. The room is unlike anything I’ve seen in any other hotel. The bathroom is divided with the shower in one area, the...

Our usual hotel in London (Piccadilly) is currently being renovated and so we tried W Leicester. It was fantastic - location of course was sensational, close to West End, immediately next to Chinatown for great eating, close to Tubes and Covent Garden, typical funky W format, nice rooms with all facilities. We always stay in the SPG group hotels so...

Do not expect an spacious and amazing design experience, like many other W hotels do have. The entrance and reception area feel very packed and small. Service in the lounge/bar is terrible. It took over 25 minutes before a waiter showed up to take the order - rarely experienced this kind of lack of service. The staff in the bar/lounge...

Difficult to review the chain of W hotels. They represent a certain chic and their rooms often reflect this mantra. The location in Leicester square was perfect, sitting just above the M+M's world.

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.
