2/10 Poor

Overpriced, tacky, loud, bad service
Unique and immersive experience? If that means loud music all night, terrible service, small rooms with tacky decor and a broken bathroom door then I would agree. It was not what I was looking for from a ‘luxury’ hotel stay. Book with caution. Live DJ at the weekend and the bar gets packed. They need to decide if they are a hotel or a nightclub. Our room was directly above the DJ booth, despite telling reception that we had booked for a night away from our baby we had to move rooms as it was so loud. We had a tiny bathroom with a sliding door that was wedged open and wouldn’t close. The bar service was not what you would expect from a luxury london hotel, or a Soho bar, they didn’t even wipe the tables. Not worth the money.

The Place to Party
Amazing hotel if you’re partying! If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing stay book elsewhere. We booked to stay over after a wedding and joined their epic Halloween Party which continued until 3am. If we’d have tried to sleep any earlier it would have been impossible as the room 3 window over looks the DJ box. There was also no outside window so no natural light, despite this being advertised as a ‘light room’. It fit the purpose but would not stay again unless we were partying.

8/10 Very good

Hip spot with mystique, but price is perhaps a bit hyped unless you really want to take advantage of the cool bar and restaurant scene. Rooms are tiny but quiet (in terms of street noise) and dark which was nice after a long flight—however, you can hear voices easily in the hallways and our neighboring guests were rudely loud and drunk in the wee hours, speaking at very loud volumes in the hallway. Bed was ok, shower was amazing! Shower was probably the best part. Breakfast was ok, nothing memorable and a simple menu but the English breakfast was satisfying. However, the waitress told us the 5 pound orange juice was fresh squeezed but it was absolutely not, it was from concentrate. The front desk staff, porters, and room service staff were very cordial and friendly and we appreciated their service.
