Editorial review:

Housed in what was once newspaper offices in 1907, the 105-room hotel One Aldwych is pleasant and displays modern art everywhere. Rooms are spacious and stylish, with raw silk curtains, natural hues and bathtubs that are big enough for two. There is a health club with an 18m swimming pool.

Verified Reviews:

  • Service is excellent and friendly - Very impressive gym - Full size pool
  • Restaurant is excellent - Small bathroom - Poor closet space
  • Pool and spa facilities were great - Just off the strand - In london's theatre land
  • Staff treated us so badly - Suite was spacious and contemporary - Rooms are nicely appointed but a little small
  • Ideal for west end activities - Pool and gym are absolutely awesome - Food was excellent

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Staff was very friendly and our son liked the changing colour of the light in the lift and the TV in the bathroom.

    We had a nice designer bathroom but the extractor fan did not work well and we had to leave always the window open and the door between bathroom and room shut. My son extra bed was against the window directly facing some offices and we had to keep the curtains shut for a bit of privacy.

  • Couple

    The hotel has an excellent location and a great spa. The personnel was very friendly and helpful, we were even guided to our room and got some explanation about all the features in the room.

    We had expected our executive room to be a little more spacious. But this was compensated by the twice daily cleaning of the room.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The staff was great, the comfort of the room and bathroom awesome, location excellent, stylish lobby, beautiful pool, and I don't even swim.

    The lobby could have complimentary water all day, and complimentary coffee to go in the morning

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    A great hotel which manages to be cool and design without being impractical. Wonderful service and attention to details.

    Just a little bit on the expensive side.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Great pool and lobby bar. Staff are very helpful. Central location.

    I had booked 2 rooms but the hotel had only one booking so we had to wait for another room to be found. It was the room size below the one I had booked but we were given free drinks at the bar whilst waiting for the room to be sorted plus free breakfast so the hotel redeemed itself. Coffee making facilities in the rooms would be good. I would have preferred a buffet breakfast to the a la carte breakfast.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Staff were friendly and helpful. A bottle of champagne and strawberries were delivered to our room because we told the staff we were celebrating our wedding anniversary.

    Check in was advertised as 2pm, but on arriving at 2.30pm our room was not ready.

    Location

    Water System, Noise, Staff Errors.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Lovely beds, first class cleanliness, daily water, fruit and flowers in the room and excellent turn-down-service.

    We would have appreciated coffemaker facilities in the room. The Aldwych room is very small and price very high.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The level of service and care e.g the individual daily weather forecast, the liquids bags for those boarding and airplane. Also the food including the best freshly squeezed orange juice in the world

    Very minor plumbing rumblings

  • Couple
    8.8

    Everything was great, a bit expensive but that's central London. Nice Bar and pool.

    There was a cold draft coming from the old windows and the heat did not really heat the room. However, when we brought this to the attention of staff they came up within 5 minutes with an electric heater, and the next day called to make sure everything was OK. Breakfast could be included in the high cost of the room.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    quality of service,swimming pool, location

  • Couple
    8.8

    The bed. The upgrade. The sound system. The bath. The tranquility.

    The noise of the eco friendly toilet flush system. The design of the bathroom.

    Stayed at One Aldwytch during a weekend break . From the moment I arrived until I left the staff were both helpful & courteous. The hotel itself is in a great location, very modern, spotlessy clean, and very comfortable. Everything is done tomake your stay a relaxing treat. I would definitely recommend One Aldwytch.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Like the design and luxury-however we waited very long for our room and even though we advised the hotel to let us know when the room will be ready they failed to do so !

  • Single
    7.4

    perfect location, stylish lobby

    not really value for money: even at a reduced are, £300 ($450) not including breakfast is steep for what was a small room. The room & bathroom furbishing was nice but nothing outstanding. By contrast, the Montcalm to which I changed after 3 days (Marble Arch), was 2/3 of the price and better (rom larger and superbly / stylishly equipped).
