We stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect for a mini break. Very central right on leicester square/china town and near tube station. Staff were very helpful and rooms very clean. Continental breakfast was very substantial.

My wife booked through Groupon and had to upgrade as there were no rooms available on the offer advertised. Funny that, considering we only encountered two other couples and we were the only couple having an 8.15 breakfast. That aside. The location was perfect for what we wanted. Stayed on Saturday night to go to the theatre in the Strand....

This hotel is slap bang in the middle of everything. Right on Leicester Square and a short walk from Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden. So perfect for site seeing. Outside the hotel is buzzing and it buzzes 24 hours a day. So if your looking for peace, tranquility and rest, this isn't the place. The streets are very noisy and...

We booked this hotel through Groupon for a one night stay for a weekend in London. On booking the hotel emailed to say the deal was only on the standard rooms and there were none available so we would have to upgrade to a 'superior' room which for an additional £40 included breakfast so fair enough, we thought. On arrival,...

As everyone has pointed out, this hotel’s selling point is its superb location, close to absolutely everything in Central London but tucked away enough in Lisle Street to give a degree of quiet. Rooms were nicely appointed and had a certain boutique feel about them. Very nice toiletries, room safe, good bath and shower and good quality furniture. The room...

When a hotel is slap bang in the middle of a tourist area it becomes hard to review, price is based on location instead of quality. However, we upgraded to a 'Superior Room' this was very small with a seperate bathroom (including bath), toileteries included. Very clean, a comfy bed and tea/coffee making facilities.

I booked through lastminute and at £180!ish this is very good value for money for a hotel in this location. It is right in the heart of Leicester Square and backs onto China Town.

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.
