There are few better places to wake up in the West End than in this sleek boutique sleepeasy in the heart of Soho. All 91 rooms are individually designed with 1930s-inspired metal grill windows that create the feel of an Upper East Side penthouse apartment. The interior is a modern reboot of rustic British design: lavish and colourful, but far from camp.
Downstairs in the lobby you’ll find a ten-foot porcelain Botero cat sculpture within view of the almost always busy restaurant and bar Refuel (responsible for a mean Bloody Mary, made with red wine, spices and a dash of horse radish). For guests, there’s the electric pink-coloured drawing room or the lower-fi library—both with open wood fires and honesty bars serving a mix of continental beer and premium spirits.
Sandwiched between Wardour and Dean Street, The Soho Hotel’s location is an obvious draw. And being based in the heart of London’s film industry district, it’s not uncommon to see Hollywood A-listers or movie hacks hanging around the lobby or using either of the two lower-ground private screening rooms (where the seats are covered in red leather and cow hide, no less). Perhaps not surprisingly then, this place is not a cheap sleep, but it comfortably qualifies as one of the capital’s best. Start saving.
