London 3rd-5th Aug Arrived in Waterloo at 8.30am, got tube to Charing Cross (£4 each for 2 stops, Good God I know I should've got a day pass but that's beside the point). Walked to our beautiful 5 star hotel One Aldwych (treat for roughing it on trains, ahem). Had time for naps and showers before meeting our best man for lunch, which took ages and …
Today we took things at a bit of a slower pace, pottering slowly around some final places we wanted to see while in London. First up we went to Notting Hill and wandered around Kensington Palace and the gardens. Lots of very cute dogs in Notting Hill we noticed. Then, we visited the very beautiful Westminster Abbey, which we all found totally a-mazing!! Lunch at Pret a Manger again (love ...
... some beautiful foods and unusual vegies. Bought Moroccan for lunch and sat on the river bank lawns to eat, followed by a punnet of tiny red strawberries with fresh choc brownies. Even a Robbie Williams look-a-like who actually made us a great coffee! Plenty of people watching here, including the local rugby ground in full swing. Its only 7kms from Heathrow, so the planes are constantly coming over. Often looking up to see three of them in ...

The sights: Seeing the Taj Mahal, the ice buildings and sculptures in the Harbin, China, the scenery in Laos, Chiang Mai, Pai and New Zealand, the beaches in Indonesia, Thailand and Australia, the beautiful diving in Australia, South Africa, Thailand and Mozambique, and the architecture ...
... in Hyde Park. Little did we know that the major summer concerts going on in Hyde Park spilled out into the park itself! We quickly cottoned on to this idea and collected ourselves some drinks, a flash picnic and settled in with many other Londoners enjoying the music and the atmosphere. There were people for as far as we could see, eating and drinking and playing Frisbee and kicking the ball. It was awesome and got even better when The Rolling Stones took to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews One Aldwych London
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.
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.
