We have stayed previously at Sanderson over the last ten years on several occasions and every stay has been a pleasure the consistency of service has always been of the highest standard from the location for the West end theatre ,restaurants,retail therapy shopping and clubs all at a reasonable price structure offers quality of service and user friendliness is most welcome.
The staff make you feel at home when you walk into the reception to the time you checkout.

Cool little hip hotel in Soho area in central London
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I travel to London frequently. this has been a staple of mine. It has a cool look, but been the same for about a decade or so. havent been here in a few months. But great rooms, great lobby bar, garden bar (when its warm), restaurant and a bunch of other hidden gems. Place remembers me when i return, staff have always been great. walkable to central london stuff. theres an awesome steak house and whiskey bar within about 100m but i cant remember the name of it.

The brief was find a different hotel to our normal city type hotels for our weekend stay in London, and wow the Sanderson delievered on different. Warm friendly doorman greet you as you enter the large lobby with a hanging glass bowl seat and a lip styled settee. You then entered the lift which is like entering a visit to a space rocket exploring the stars, so to the room, large airy, glass panelled bathroom, with a sink offsite at an angle from the wall as is the bed oh and the landscape picture not on a wall but on the ceiling! Coffee machine, mini bar and bottles of water. You have to try the main bar which offers great cocktails and then move to the purple bar who's name needs no explaining. What makes this hotel though is it's staff, everyone warm, welcoming and who go out of their way to help, oh and a 2 minute walk to oxford street, well done Sanderson you have set the standard...

Old and Tired
Reviewed 1 month ago

I used to have terrific times at the Sanderson but that was a decade ago with the property now feeling tired and dated. What really shocked me is despite the age this property now feels they can charge exorbitant prices that are far above any other five star hotel in London including the white hot Edition Hotel directly opposite.

This is the first time I've encountered a 15% service charge...that's unheard of yet for reasons lost on me seems to be considered acceptable here. What's more baffling is they couple this service charge with in-room tray fees of an additional £3.50 every time. Expect to therefore pay well over £10 for a water with ice.

Enough said and I won't be back.
