Overview

Boutique retreat with a rooftop bar and a 24-hour hot tub in the heart of London’s Soho

The Look

Housed within two elegant Victorian townhouses, the Sanctum Soho scores high on the design front. Candlelit interiors are dark and lavish; think deep crushed velvet chaise longues, huge leather sofas and a mirror-backed bar. Photographs of rock star regulars dot the walls, and the place is filled with quirky treasures, from the old cinema seats at the rooftop bar to graphic print skull wallpaper.

Bed and Bath

Each of the 30 guestrooms is ultra-glam. Crash Pads are petite (150 square feet), with white tiled bathrooms; Deluxe Rooms are either bright and airy with all-white furniture, or dark and sultry with minibars where you can shake your own cocktails. Suites are downright decadent; 401 is tucked under the eaves and has a circular bed and its own little balcony, and 501 has disco written all over it, with silver sequined blinds and a freestanding tub surrounded by glass pebbles, lights and a mirror glass column. Even the diamante door handles sparkle.

Beyond

The Sanctum Soho is all geared up for indulging. On the ground floor there’s restaurant No. 20, where traditional British dishes are served against a glamorous vintage backdrop, and up on the roof there’s a round-the-clock bar serving cocktails as you soak in the Hydro-Spa hot tub. Downstairs you’ll find an atmospheric underground cinema (the room once belonged to MI5), with sink-into Art Deco–style velvet chairs and a bar.

Best Hotel!

Best Hotel in london would recommend the hotel to anyone who like somewhere a little bit different to stay. Not your normal West End hotel. The staff are so friendly and nothing is a problem. Love the roof top bar.

As always, just perfect. Love this place. Don’t really want anyone to know about this gem. Has that ‘rock star’ feel so that makes me feel a bit special too. Perfect location, relaxed atmosphere, lovely breakfast plus special roof top bar.

best stay ever!

As a business travel stay over this hotel makes a fabulous change from the hum drum. Friendly, quirky and all you could need for your visit. I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something a little different.
