Amy Adejokun Section editor

Standing in the very desirable Piccadilly district, the appropriately named Soho Sanctum Hotel opened the doors of its sanctuary in summer 2009. You won't need a spa and a host of massage treatments to feel good here though. The small scale of the hotel, its meticulous decor, and the impeccable service provided are enough to relax the body, mind, and soul. This small hotel will appeal to all types of clientele and particularly young couples.

    Location 6.4 /10

    Positioned between 2 strategic points of the capital (Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus) on a small street tucked away from the hustle and bustle, the Soho Sanctum Hotel couldn't really be better located. On the one hand it offers easy access to the major London attractions and on the other it is served by 4 of the 14 underground lines, namely the Bakerloo, Central, Piccadilly, and Victoria lines. You really do have literally everything you need (including a cinema, shops, restaurants, and bars) close at hand.

    Accommodation 8.40 /10

    "Luxury is a sense", the manager tells us when we arrive, and such a philosophy can lead you to make all sorts of assumptions. You'll certainly be curious to find out what lies behind the doors of the Soho Sanctum's 30 guest rooms! All of them beautifully decorated, each different from the last, they range from a romantic room complete with angel wings adorning the walls and cushions bearing the English flag to an all black and white sequined room. In addition to the typical amenities: Wifi, a minibar, a flat screen television, individual air conditioning, a safe, bathrobes, and organic hospitality products, all of the rooms have an unusual characteristic: embossed wallpaper that you can't help but run your fingers over. The manager's words to us on our arrival start to take on some meaning... In another original twist, and in order to compensate for the absence of a gym, the management has also had Wii Fit equipment installed in all of the rooms! Next, since there is a solution to every problem, they took the bull by the horns and decorated the windows with decals, making up for the lack scenery: "We didn't have any views so we decided to create some!"

    Overview 8.65 /10

    This establishment is one of the well kept secrets of the old Georgian buildings that initially appear insignificant. Having served as offices in their past life, the buildings now conceal a new interior style worthy of any boutique hotel, and whilst you won't find any minimalism here, the style is nevertheless original and decidedly contemporary. Beyond the revolving doors you'll find a world fashion specialists might describe as glam'chic, with dark parquet flooring in the lobby and on the stairs, a pink velour armchair, abstract paintings, a leather armchair, and a giant mirror laid on the ground. The stairs and lift lead up to the semi-covered terrace on the top floor, where you'll also find a jacuzzi and the Roof Garden bar. When you factor in the 'events' area as well, you'll soon see that there really is no need to leave the hotel during your stay, even (and particularly!) if you are in London on business!

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Number 20 isn't the twentieth restaurant on Warwick St., it's merely a reference to the address of the hotel. Just like the other communal areas, the decor here is very tasteful, with dark parquet floors, dark leather and iridescent orange fabric armchairs, and stylish lighting. The 60-seater restaurant is open from 6:00am to 10:30pm and serves "traditional and contemporary" cuisine, traditional in terms of the ingredients used and contemporary in the style of cooking. You'll find a variety of different menus available, with separate ones for lunch, dinner, breakfast, brunch, and even afternoon tea, all at very reasonable prices by London standards; a 2 course meal setting you back from around £15.

    To know

    The hotel was christened 'Sanctum' in reference to the word 'sanctuary' and all associated terms. It is primarily sold as a Bed & Breakfast establishment, though 24 hour room service is also available. You'll find a home cinema screen installed in a room at the hotel where professional events and private receptions are held.

      The Sanderson is one of those hotels in the world that you just have to stay at, at least once. It is a must for its unusual decoration (not that of a classic hotel) and 'way out there' atmosphere, whether you stay to dine or have a drink. Wealthy regulars will spend several nights here.

      This hotel is a safe choice in the district of luxury hotels (the Ritz is in the area), a location adapted to high class shopping, or for strolling around Green Park. You should also note that the Meridien Piccadilly has a swimming pool as well as a gym. Which will allow you to plan a sports session before dinner. In the restaurant illuminated by a glass roof. The setting and service are worth trying out.

      The exclusive St. James's Hotel and Club is appropriately tucked away discreetly at the end of a cul-de-sac behind The Ritz on Piccadilly. While perhaps not quite of the same standing as its West End neighbour, the property is nonetheless a class act and has a history and following to rival that of any London hotel. The guestrooms are decorated and appointed to the highest standards and feature every amenity expected of a place like St. James's. As well as Michelin star dining and a service of the utmost attention to detail, the hotel still operates as a club to the rich and famous so you never know who you will be rubbing shoulders with when you stay here. More of a couples' or individual hotel, the St. James's is the place to come for intimacy, discretion and privacy.

      The first hotel to have opened its doors in the British capital, Brown's Hotel can also boast the fact it was immortalised in the Agatha Christie novel 'At Bertram's Hotel'! The premises have somewhat changed, however, since the days when the famous writer stayed here. Yet although the hotel now offers a contemporary and designer setting, its walls still hold the atmosphere of the past...

      This legendary chain hotel, which has stood at the heart of the British capital for over a century, really needs no introduction. This uber-famous chain has only 3 European hotels, namely in Madrid, Paris, and London. Although they all are run independently of each other, they all share an exciting history and provide ultra-chic surroundings, from the communal areas to the huge guest rooms. Do be aware though, that if you're planning on visiting this legendary establishment, if only to partake of its traditional afternoon tea, you will need to show your credentials, be appropriately dressed, and have a nice full wallet.

      In very much the same way as the opening of The Savoy caused tongues to wag furiously back in 1889 with its electricity, new fangled lifts and en suite bathrooms, the reopening after three years of renovation on 10th October 2010 was the biggest talking point in the British, if not world, hotel industry. Brought back to its full Art Deco and Edwardian glory, The Savoy is now bigger and better than ever. The jewel in the crown of London's hotels now has several new features and much of what came before has had a full face lift. Immaculate rooms, exquisite dining and the finest of décor make of The Savoy the only place to stay in this town. It proves that class is timeless.

      • Location 3.0

      The beautiful gothic St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, now almost 140 years old, is located right next to King's Cross St Pancras, which might not be in the most glamorous of neighbourhoods, but the hotel's 1800 period charm is unbeatable. The enormous hotel raised to the grey London skies with its stern-looking clock tower and turrets, looks extremely daunting, but once inside, the atmosphere is cosy and warm. A great place to stay for business people needing to be close to the station, but also a fun and unusual experience for leisure guests. The only hotel in the country to be built right on the railway, the St Pancras Renaissance is one of a kind; if you do not decide to stay here, try dropping in for a coffee or lunch at The Booking Office or Gilbert Scott.

      Don't let the appearance of this classical 19th century building fool you - although the inside is as elegant as its exterior facade, you're likely to find a few nice surprises in store. This may be due to the fact that this is no ordinary hotel! Instead, it is a 'large luxurious house', as the management likes to call it, located at the very heart of the elegant Kensington district and just a stone's throw from the park of the same name. You will definitely need to have a blank cheque book if you want to stay, or even just dine, at this 5 star establishment...

      This former town hall in East London represents one of the most remarkable transformations of any building in the capital. While most of the edifice's original architectural features have been guarded, this has not been seen as an obstacle to introducing a highly contemporary design into the hugely spacious rooms, world-class restaurant and divine pool and gym. Add to this a unique art project, great service and a vibrant history and you get one of the most unconventional hotels in London. Recommended for all types of traveller, especially those who are tired of staying in the town centre and are looking for an alternative location.
