Wonderful hotel close to the theatre district

The hotel staff makes you feel so welcomed from the moment you enter the front door. The location is fabulous for anyone who has theatre tickets. The 5 stars are very deserved. Will go again.

Staff fantastic ...thank you

Had four rooms booked for our group. Amazing welcome, nice quick check in, lovely lobby bar. Beds large and comfy with great pillows but view was disappointing and room small and basic looking. Bathroom nicer than the bedroom. Compared to other hotels in London of same rating I thought the room let it slip. Everything else was awesome though especially the staff whose attention to detail was impeccable and impressive.

Perfect Location

Our stay at this hotel was fantastic. It is situated in an excellent location and within walking of a number of places of interest, shopping and west end. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful and courteous. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

great service, poor sleep

stayed in an Aldwych room on first floor - do not recommend. constant noise, banging from old clunky pipes and plumbing. thought that there was someone constantly opening and closing doors or banging with a hammer. could not get back to sleep once i was woken at 6am. Its a real shame as the hotel staff are all lovely, inviting, cannot be more pleasant. the lobby bar staff are great, the drinks and food very reasonable for central London hotel. pity we didnt sleep well.

Palveluun on panostettu

Parasta hotellissa oli hyvä palvelu. Huone oli pienempi kuin varauksessa oli luvattu ja melua kuului kadulta jonkin verran. Huoneen varustetaso oli hyvä, joskin vedenkeitin puuttui. Sänky oli kova ja ilman sijauspatjaa, mutta ihanat untuvapeitot ja tyynyt. Kokonaisuutena laatu ei mielestäni vastannut täysin kovaa hintaa.

Accueil, emplacement, propreté, insonorisation et équipements excellents :-) Manque peut-être un jacuzzi ... Les chambres sont petites mais très soignées. Le petit déjeuner un peu cher mais très bon. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir. MERCI encore au personnel pour l'accueil toujours très sympathique .

Gutes Stadthotel mit Extras

Pool, Sauna, Dampfbad und Fitnessraum gut ausgestattet. Sauna und Dampfbad müssen (leider) mit Badehosen besucht werden - einziger kleiner Makel. Täglich kleine Aufmerksamkeiten im Zimmer (Obst, Pralinen, Weinflasche, frische Blumen)

Super tolles und luxuriöses Stadthotel

Wer nicht auf Luxus verzichten will und dennoch in einem übersichtlichen Haus wohnen möchte geht ins One Aldwych! Die Zimmer (Executive Rooms) sind mit allem Komfort ausgestattet sogar inkl. Adapter (CH-GB). Die Hotelbar ist gemütlich und das Personal sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Einen TIpp: Wenn man ein Restauranttisch beim Concierce buchen möchte, immer nachfragen ob die Reservation für den richtigen Tag ist- manchmal sind sie zu voreilig und meinen die Reservation sei "sogleich" :-)
