    Quirky little Soho hotel

    by

    There is no house restaurant or bar, but then you have the whole of Soho to choose from outside the front door.

    Unique Quality: This is the house where essayist William Hazlitt lived and died. Back in the early nineteenth century it was a cheap Soho lodging house, which got an unfavourable review from Hazlitt himself: in one of his deathbed essays he condemned it as an ‘unwholesome dungeon’. In a master stroke of irony, the house (and its two adjoining neighbours) have since been transformed into a luxurious hotel. In 1718 there were no elevators and there still aren’t, but they have updated the plumbing, installed bathrooms and replaced most of the candles with electricity. This place is full of creaky character, including a throne-style antique lavatory in one room, and many of the rooms have claw-footed baths and four-poster beds. You can even sleep in the room where Hazlitt died. Understandably, the place maintains an impressive literary pedigree: there is a tradition of visiting authors leaving a signed copy of their book in the hotel library.

    Directions: Tottenham Court Road tube.

    Boutique Hotel in the heart of Soho

    by

    Our stay at this hotel was very comforting. It is located in the middle of the Soho area, which is one of the reason we chose it. The room where we stayed in is called the Earl of St. Albans. It isn't big but it was cozy enough for us. What I really like about the place was the details that they have in the room, especially the bathroom. They do not have a shower, but they have a gorgeous bathtub that might be made in the 18th century, the same as when they built the hotel. I will definitely come back again and recommend people to go there because this hotel is one of the hotels in London in which you can experience the full English charm.

    Unique Quality: The rooms at the hotel are named after the guests or previous residents. It was too bad that we didn't stay at the Jonathan Swift (the author of Gulliver's Travel), ... maybe next time .. :)
    Its' distance from the heart of Soho is hard to beat. Most of the good restaurants are within walking distance. The service was excellent and the front desk was always happy to help us with our inquiries.

    Directions: Soho

Have you tried the Thistle hotels in the West End? There are two (Trafalgar Square and Charing Cross) that are both good locations. I have no idea what availability there is, but they'd be worth looking into.

I eventually decided to head into town on Wednesday to see what hotels were about. The Thistle hotel at Picadilly was on my shortlist but I've gone all out and booked 2 nights in the Radisson Hampshire in Leicester Sq. Will cost me just about as much as a weeks holiday but you've gotta try these things now and then.

Thanks for your advice,

Clive
