The utterly cool W London has a stunning location in the heart of London's West End, just moments from The Yard, VILLAGE Bar and other gay bars in Soho. Hooking up would be much easier if you dropped the W into the conversation.

Why this hotel? Great location in Soho. Stunning rooms. Fabulous service.
There is a good chance that even the most regular visitor to London will not have heard of Hazlitt's. Comprised of interconnecting historic Georgian houses just off Soho Square, most of the hotel's business is from personal recommendation.

Hazlitt's philosophy is to offer exceptional hospitality and a friendly, efficient service. If you need a few strings pulled to book a table or ticket to a show, they will try their best to get what you want.

The stunning guest rooms are adorned with pictures and antiques, as well as air conditioner, free WiFi and LCD TV. Hazlitt's is across the road from the stylish CIRCA Soho gay bar and not much further from all the gay bars in Soho.

THE HARI LONDON(Ex-Belgraves)
Location Icon

20 Chesham Place,, London

Show on map
Why this hotel? Utterly cool. Great for shopping & the scene.
Much of Belgravia is still owned by the Duke of Westminster and remains the most fashionable residential district in central London and home to the super rich (both 'old money' and 'new')

The Hari is very much a "new Britannia" hotel. The 'totally cool' guest rooms feature large comfortable beds, marble bathrooms with a walk-in shower with amenities by REN. The hotel has a great restaurant, bar and gym. Needless to say, the service is second to none.

Location-wise, The Hari is great for shopping as it is halfway between Sloane Square and Knightbridge, and halfway between Soho and Vauxhall gay villages, too!
