Soho / Central London

The heart of gay London. Soho is home to many of London’s best gay bars and is close to the West End theatres, Covent Garden, Oxford Street, Chinatown and Trafalgar Square.

Why this hotel?: Great location. Modern rooms. Close to gay scene & shopping area.

ME London is located in the former Marconi House where BBC made its first broadcast in 1922. A stunning glass and stone extension was added, and the building was transformed into a luxury hotel. The rooftop bar is also something worth checking out.

Individually styled guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies with city views, soundproofing, climate control, media hubs, Nespresso coffee machine, fabulous beds and large luxurious bathrooms.

Nearby, there’s a huge range of shops and restaurants in Covent Garden and some of the best theatres. A 10-minute walk can get you to Soho gay bars, Pleasuredrome sauna which is just across the river in Waterloo and G-A-Y @ Heaven etc. The Vauxhall gay village can be reached by taxi in about 15 minutes.

Why this hotel?: Chic in Soho. Celeb hangout. In the gay village.

It does not get much better than this in central London. This default hotel of choice for many A-List celebrities is located in a surprisingly quiet street in the middle of Soho. The Village and YARD gay bar are just moments away.

The Soho boasts both style and substance with elegant rooms and suites, all with large bathrooms and super comfy beds. A well-equipped gym, chic cocktail bar, fabulous restaurant and impressive concierge make The Soho stand out from the pack.

Why this hotel?: London glam. Classic boutique hotel. Top-rated.

Hotel glamour at its best. This landmark Regency building has been transformed into a stunning boutique hotel by the same team that developed The Soho Hotel.

Check into one of the individually-styled bedrooms and suites, sip a cocktail in the stylish bar and take dip in the fabulous 19-metre swimming pool.

The Haymarket is in the heart of the theatre district and just a few minutes’ walk from the Soho gay bars. Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden and the shops on Regent and Oxford Street are all within walking distance.

Why this hotel?: WOW factor. 2 min. walk to Soho. Luxury choice.

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.

The funky, modern rooms have an innovative design that maximises the use of space and feature all the usual W amenities. We love the signature feather top mattress and cutting-edge technology.

Don’t forget to check out the hotel bars – great destinations of their own that often host parties during Pride in London each year.

Why this hotel?: Classic luxury. Fabulous location. Near Soho gay village.

It is impossible not to be impressed by the fabulous Sofitel St James. This former bank building has English Heritage Grade II listed status and an enviable position on Pall Mall.

Walk north up Waterloo Place and in just a couple of minutes you will be in the Soho gay district. Walk south, across Pall Mall, and you will be looking towards Buckingham Place.

The combination of British design with the elegant French styling works very well. We love the richly-decorated, sophisticated state-of-the-art guest rooms & suites. The hotel has a fabulous spa, a gym, and free WiFi for all.

Why this hotel?: British Chic. Style and substance. Great Location.

Just a 5-minute walk from the Soho gay village, the ultra-chic Covent Garden Hotel is surrounded by fine restaurants, boutiques and nightlife.

Guest rooms feature free WiFi, flat screen TV and fully stocked minibar. Many rooms have views over London’s rooftops.

The hotel has a superb restaurant, stylish bar, fabulous spa and a gym, although the nearby Soho Gyms  has a lot more eye candy, or the equally close The Stable sauna offers more fun.

Why this hotel?: Next to Sweatbox Sauna. Great for shopping & gay scene.

This luxury London hotel is located within a building that used to be a court house, just a few minutes’ walk from the Soho and steps from Sweatbox Sauna, one of London’s most popular gay saunas.

Shopping queens will love being close to the boutiques on Carnaby Street and nearby Regents and Oxford Street (two of the best shopping areas in London).

Fine dining, a fantastic bar, rooftop terrace, indoor pool and well-equipped gym all add to the appeal. The ground floor bar is very interesting as it was the jail area. Today, you can sip a cocktail in your own private cell.

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.

Vauxhall / South Bank

London’s 2nd largest gay village is in Vauxhall. The area is home to gay bars, saunas, cruise bars and dance clubs – all on the south side of River Thames, between Vauxhall and Waterloo bridges.

London Eye, Tate Modern, Royal Festival Theatre are all nearby, as well as restaurants & cafés on The Queen’s Walk – a pedestrian route that runs alongside the river, known as South Bank.

Why this hotel?: Iconic skyscraper. Amazing views. Fabulous rooms.

A stunning new addition to London’s skyline. The Shard the tallest building in Europe. Inside, occupying the 34th-52th  floors, is the very first Shangri-La hotel in the UK.

The views of London from the guest rooms are breathtaking. Each climate-controlled guest room features signature Shangri-La body contour-hugging bed and the latest in-room technology. The bathrooms are equally impressive with large tubs, showers and Acqua di Parma toiletries.

The range of Asian-inspired dining options have already become destinations for Londoners in their own rights. TING, the hotel’s signature restaurant serves modern European menu with subtle Asian influences. And don’t miss GŎNG, London’s highest cocktail bar.

Located on the south side of the Thames, almost on top of London Bridge train and tube stations.

West London

This upmarket West London district is occupied by some great hotels, high-end shops (Knightsbridge, New Bond St, King’s Road) and attractions. There are public transport links to Soho and Vauxhall.

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!

East London

Why this hotel?: New hotel. Stunning Coran-designed rooms. Fine dining.

Independently owned luxury hotel, located just a few minutes’ walk from both Liverpool Street and Moorgate underground stations. South Place features stunning Coran-designed guest rooms that combine the best technology: 4o” Bang & Olufsen TV, mood lighting, media hub, free WiFi.

This is the first hotel in London by internationally renowned restaurateurs D&D London. Executive Chef Tony Fleming oversees all the menus in both restaurants – worth a visit even if you don’t stay here. Guests have exclusive use of a well-equipped gym with TechnoGym equipment and cardio machines.

The closeness of two major underground stations makes getting around the city very easy. The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Tate Modern and St Paul’s are all within walking distance.
