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.
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.
How to Get There
We’ve just returned from what was my hubby’s first trip to London for his 40th birthday and we just loved this hotel!!! What a fab hidden gem this is wow!!! Amazing location, staff so friendly & hotel so quirky. It’s so different with great attention to detail. You feel so special and like a rockstar. We was very kindly given an upgrade and bottle of fizz which was such a fab treat!! Hot tub on the roof was a lovely touch too. We will defo be back and will recommend to others! Thank you Karma Sanctum Soho ????
This hotel is ideally located just off Regents street handy for both Oxford street, Carnaby street and Shaftesbury Avenue. A lovely little bijoux hotel which is a bit quirky but in a relaxing and pleasant way. Would recommend it and come back again
