    Historical Traveler Reviews One Aldwych London

    Above and beyond


    What a gem of a hotel! My husband and I stayed here over Easter week and had a fabulous experience. The staff were marvelously accomodating.

    E.g.--we arrived on a red-eye flight and got to the hotel around 9:00 am. Our room was not scheduled to be available until 4:00, so we asked to stow our bags while we had breakfast and wandered the city. The desk clerk (perhaps noting our sleep deprivation!), offered us a room right then! We gratefully accepted, ate breakfast, and slept for a couple of hours before heading down to their incredible pool/sauna.

    The location CANNOT BE BEAT! Every museum/theater/attraction on our list was within walking distance except Kew Gardens, a pleasant tube ride away. And the hotel itself is beautiful--sleek, modern, clean, and filled with contemporary artwork. We are returning to London in August and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

    Old British hospitality in the new millenium


    Sleek, chic, and sophisticated - the One Aldwych. It is located most perfectly in the heart of London. The concierge service is first rate in all the little ways you'd expect and in the large ones: they got us every theater ticket we had asked for. The maid service is inconspicuous, yet outstanding. I feel I must mention the bed that made me want to never get up, and the pool that made me get up earlier than I ever would. Both Axis and Indigo are restaurants to be recommended, and the Lobby Bar is a grand place for a night cap, where the London crowd is sleek, chic, and sophisticated.

    Wonderful One Aldwych


    My wife and I stayed at One Aldwych last August and had a wonderful time. The hotel was an elegant, cool sanctuary from the bustle of the city. Excellent location. Excellent bedding. Excellent ambience.

    Despite the negative comments in earlier postings, we found the staff to be very helpful (they accomodated several special requests). This hotel will definately be home base for us next time we are in London.



    We stayed there in January 2004 and absolutely loved it! The location is wonderful, the rooms were nice and we loved the internet on the tv!

    :) The staff was sooo nice the concierge was more than helpful- they hooked us up at the best restaurants in town. The doormen were always friendly to us and the massages in the spa were wonderful. I especially loved the bathrooms- with the little tv and the nice big bathtub. I highly recommend staying here- it was so nice and the staff & service is unbelieveable...oh and the scrambled eggs are to die for!

    Snotty Staff and small rooms


    The staff is extremly rude at this hotel. We had probelms when checking in and the person behind the counter called his collegue behind the wall and we heard them laughing. He came back and was blatently rude to us as was his co-worker.

    The location looked great but we were not prepared to be treated like that by anyone.

    There are several excellent hotels a few feet away so don't stay here just for the location.

    Love the location


    Solid 5-star hotel in a great location next to Covent Gardens.

    Beautiful bed and linens and the room was very quiet. Definitely minimalism and designer everything. Excellent service and the pool is spectacular!



    All I remember is the pompous *** for a doorman they had! Treated me like street garbage because I was wearing a t-shirt, then fell into superficial apologies when he realized I was a guest! Never again! I've had better service from one-star hotels!

    Sophisticated, gorgeous, sleek!


    This is the hotel James Bond would choose in London. We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! It's sleekly opulent and gorgeously sexy. The linens are Frette, the bathroom the best I've ever had at a hotel -- deep brown marble tub, orchids, a fabulous shower. Every detail is perfectly designed.Expensive but I felt like it was worth every penny.

    Lovely top hotel in center of London


    Well, I stayed here, in this lovely hotel, and I assure you that you will not be disappointed staying in this top hotel at top location.

    Super Hotel


    ok, i haven't acyually stayed @ the hotel but the bar is fantastic! they give free cnapes and beauitiful cocktails alcoholic and non. The staff are extremly nice someone i know went thier with their wife for their anniversary and what did they find in their room that night? champagne and chocalates on the house. The pool is beautiful complete with under lwater music and the restaurant has beautiful decor. the bar has vry big sculptures in it but it adds to the classy atmosphere. A real find!

    Walking the streets of London

    ... excited and got our photos, though we were the only ones at that time so took our time looking at it. We looked it up after since it was in the town hall and found that it was a common place for it to be held.

    After that excitement we headed to the bridge and walked over it, getting some hot peanuts covered in a sugar coating on the way from a street vendor. The bridge is very impressive and is is an iconic symbol of London ...

    A return to a familiar city....

    ... beans, toast, juice and coffee. It was a bit lighter than the full English breakfast I was hoping for, but still provided a good start to the day. I lingered over breakfast for awhile and chatted with some of the other guests and the staff, as it was taking some time to get the energy to head out touring.

    My plans for today are to visit the Imperial War Museum, as it's undergone a major renovation in the last year or so and I'd like to see what has ...

    London baby!

    ... and then we had it all figured out. We were definitely very touristy. I have also discovered that knowing how to get somewhere based on a map does not mean you know how to get there in really life. I'm pretty sure that all of the maps of London are fake and they put them on the streets just to confuse people. I got turned around so many times already! The other thing about using the underground transportation is that it is not friendly to ...

    ... Sat on the R side of the coach so no clear idea about roads and stops. Well, it was Leeds, arriving at 1025 for a 1100 departure. Walked to the adjoining local bus terminal where, John, I grabbed a coffee and an eclair [2.25L] for a second breakfast.
    An attire issue developed: the pocket I usually kept my wallet in had a snap for security purposes It broke away from the material so I have to move things to the other side. ...

    The beginning of a looooong journey..

    ... dude in a
    coffee shop where to find this typical English dish. He told us some direction,
    which we followed and indeed –F&C for $10. We sat down, wanted to order
    right away. Before we could open our mouth, the waitress told us that
    Fish&Chips were sold out! OMG. We almost gave up, until we in the end did
    get lucky with F&C .

    And we were ready for out next stop.. NYC : )
