Excellent hotel, modern and attractive lounge, pleasant staff. Unbeatable location. Proximity to Covent Garden and walking distance to Westminster. Highly recommended for short stays and city escapes.

I love this hotel . The W is always vibrant and hip. It's London I would expect the huge increase in price in regards to food, drinks etc. so the price was not a big issue for me. We brought our 2 and 3 year old along for this trip and the room worked out ok. I would say its...

We stayed as a treat for our wedding anniversary. This is a very modern hotel in a great location. The positives were that our room on 5th floor was quiet: considering it was a busy Friday night we had virtually now noise from outside, and zero sound internally from doors banging, other rooms, voices etc. The rooms are quite chic:...

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here. He frequents London and this was his and our first time at this hotel and we won't be back.

This hotel enjoys a great location, right in the heart of the theatre and restaurant district. Its proximity to Leicester Square, and the fact that it has a nightclub within the building, means that the entrance feels a little dicey and it's not surprising that you have to go upstairs to check in. The hotel has acquired much of the...

If you read the reviews on trip advisor, it sounds like a tale of two very different hotels. What a traveler needs to realize is that this is a very modern and slightly quirky hotel from a design standpoint. If you're looking for something classic and Victorian, this is not it! But if you value design and modern aesthetics, you'll...

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.
