Best Hotels in Soho




Hazlitt’s might be small, but it certainly is a mighty hotel. If you didn’t know, Hazlitt’s is housed in the former home of essayist and writer, William Hazlitt. 

You can clearly see how he influenced the decor at Hazlitt’s. This boutique hotel in Soho has that old London charm about it. It’s quintessentially British, and you should expect to guzzle copious amounts of tea during your stay.

Its hospitable service from start to finish reminds us of London’s past. That, and the myriad of antiques just dotted around – and books, lots of them. 

Bedrooms feel a bit regal, with lavish bed posts and walls painted in reds and yellows. In fact, each room is individually decorated with bay windows armed with cushions – perfect for reading all those books. 

The Resident


The Resident Soho

Tucked away near Soho Square, The Resident is as stylish as it is vibrant. It fits perfectly into the surrounding buzz of Soho.

You wouldn’t so much as find a cushion out of place at The Resident, everything has its place here, including you. Take your pick from 78 rooms, all of which come with a mini-kitchen, exquisite hand-made furniture, and bespoke artwork. 

The location of this hotel is our fave, nestled amongst some of Soho’s best bars and restaurants and within walking distance to Seven Dials Market. 

The Soho Hotel


The Soho Hotel

The Soho Hotel is tucked down a side street in Soho, offering a slice of tranquillity next to the buzzing streets of the capital. 

Its 96 bedrooms are stylish and quirky. Colourful wallpaper matches prominent headboards attached to four-poster beds. 

During your stay, you need to check out the award-winning bar – or have a quiet one and take your pick from your in-room mini-bar.  

Now for the best bit, guests can enjoy breakfast at The Soho Hotel at no additional charge. Head down to buffet-style full English breakfast in the AM. It’s served at the on-site modern European restaurant. 

The Treehouse


Treehouse Hotel London

The Treehouse Hotel is a quirky Soho boutique hotel. It sits high up in the sky, hence the name, and the views are unmatched.

This place feels a bit like an adult playground, there’s just so much to do and explore. The decor is full of playful touches like Paddington Bears perched in bedrooms that are floor-to-ceiling concrete. 

You’ll be drawn in by the big bay windows with a panoramic snapshot of the London skyline, you’ll even be able to spot The Shard, Canary Wharf, and The London Eye if you look closely.

Two of our favourite past times are eating and drinking, something that The Treehouse has mastered. If you’re in the mood for Mexican food, good vibes and a killer skyline view then book yourself a table at Madera. 

The Nest is Treehouse’s rooftop bar with 360 views and some seriously delicious cocktails. It’s the best place to hang out if you’re feeling fancy, and we know you are.  

Courthouse Hotel


Courthouse Hotel London

Looking for the most luxurious boutique hotel in Soho? Look no further than the Courthouse Hotel

This 5-star hotel is housed inside an old Grade-II listed Magistrates court that enjoys all the pizazz of theatreland and the retail therapy buzz of Oxford Street.

The Courthouse Hotel’s 116 bedrooms are contemporary, pimped up in a Scandinavian decor style. Bleached woods and tonal colours with ambient lighting are just what you need to feel relaxed after a night out in Soho.

Although, if you’re really looking to relax, you might want to head to Sanook Spa. We’re sure a treatment there will leave you feeling completely zen. 

No.5 Maddox Street


No.5 Maddox Street

No.5 Maddox Street is a little different to your average hotel. It’s more of an apartment block, but with all the same remnants of a luxe hotel.

Stay in one of the 12 uniquely stylish apartments equipped with one, two or three beds – this makes it perfect for group trips. All rooms are larger than average hotel rooms and come with perks like Bluetooth speakers, and your own kitchen to cook up a storm in. 

Bedrooms here are modern and have been kitted out with the likes of handwoven Moroccan and vintage prints adorning the walls. Bigger apartments come with a planted terrace and outdoor seating, perfect for entertaining. 

Ham Yard Hotel


Ham Yard Hotel

We rave about the Ham Yard Hotel again and again. It’s uniquely designed and no two rooms are the same here. The restaurant adds pops of vibrant colours, whilst the lounge is easy on the eye and follows a more neutral colour palette. 

Each of the bedrooms revolve around a tree-filled garden with a magical bronze sculpture designed by Tony Cragg. Rooms are decorated in funky wallpaper and the luxury terrace rooms come with floor-to-ceiling windows opening out onto a private terrace. 

Karma Sanctum Soho


Karma Sanctum Soho Hotel

If you couldn’t tell by the name, one of the most interesting boutique hotels in Soho has to be Karma Sanctum Soho. Back in 2009, music insiders designed a sophisticated boutique hotel for music industry friends.

The rock ‘n’ roll hotel is housed inside unassuming Georgina townhouses. Boasting 30 guest rooms dressed in outlandish artwork from head to toe, everything about this place is energetic and playful. 

That said, one of the best things about Karma Sanctum has to be its rooftop terrace and bar. Located on the 5th floor, this well-kept secret is an enclosed sanctuary for guests and members only.

It’s open for morning coffees right through to late-night tipples, and of course, there’ll be lots of music to get the party started in the PM.   

The Piccadilly West End


The Piccadilly London West End

The Piccadilly West End is an urban hideaway for those that want to have Soho at their fingertips but also dip their toes in a relaxing sanctuary. 

Stepping inside this West End hotel, you’ll find boutique rooms designed for both comfort and style. From compact double rooms to suites with four-poster beds that are elegant and classic by design. 

We wouldn’t have called it a sanctuary if it didn’t have a wellness centre, right? Treat yourself to indulgent spa treatments at the wellness centre before retreating to the jacuzzi and sauna room.  

Mornings at The Piccadilly West End are the best. Don’t believe us? Head down to the buffet-style breakfast and fill yer’ boots with a full English, pastries, and fresh fruit.
