The Lowdown

A contemporary city pad in one of London’s toniest neighborhoods, One Aldwych is Cool Britannia at its very best. The boutique property has been thoughtfully decorated with original photography, art and sculpture, and it delivers impeccable service, high-tech, amenities and outstanding dining options. Bespoke furnishings and a profusion of fresh flowers underline the attention to detail and comfort the Brits do so well. Upstairs, 105 guest rooms are fitted with original artwork, Frette linens, and oversize bathrooms. The vibe here is more business and romantic than family-friendly—the lobby is sleek and swank, with elaborate flower arrangements, and guests make good use of the heath center and spa, where restorative treatments use Barcelona’s Natura Bissé skincare line. Our favorite feature: the plush 30-seat screening room, which shows classic films and new releases.

In the Area

One Aldwych is right in the heart of London, close to the Royal Opera House and Waterloo Bridge. The Theatre District is at your doorstep. Take in a world class show, concert, ballet or opera, but reserve your tickets in advance. (One Aldwych’s concierge can take care of this for you.) There’s also an abundance of outstanding art venues nearby including Tate Modern, Tate Britain, the National Gallery, and the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace. Consider investing in a London Pass for discounted entrance to numerous sights.

We recently enjoyed our 22nd visit to One Aldwych. You cannot beat the location . The hotel has undergone extensive renovations making the rooms some of the freshest and coziest anywhere. What hasn't changed is the attention to detail throughout .We would highly recommend staying here

Top notch!

Recently spent 8 nights at One Aldwych. Fabulous experience at this this top notch and well-located hotel. Attentive, friendly, helpful, and efficient staff, a great lobby bar, innovative restaurants and a luxurious room made our stay a five star experience. Highly recommend.
