The location of the Sanctum Soho Hotel is as 5 star as the rest of the property, situated as it is in the heart of the West End just off Regent Street. Shopaholics can pop out to the multiple high street and designer shops that are dotted along Oxford Street, Regent Street and the surrounding areas, and the entertainment hive of Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square are a short walk away from the hotel entrance. The majority of London's most famous theatres can be found in this district, alongside a plethora of diverse restaurants, bars and clubs that can accommodate any budget. Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery are not much further afield, with lively Soho and affluent Mayfair also close by and ready to be explored. The nearest Tube station is Oxford Circus on the Central, Victoria and Bakerloo lines, and there are plenty of other stations nearby to provide access across the capital. For those who want to feel like they are living in the midst of the city and want to enjoy all the best leisure activities in London, the hotel's location cannot be beaten.
Service at the hotel aims to go above and beyond what is required, with a 24 hour reception and concierge on-hand to provide you with whatever you need to make your stay special. This can include private gym access, personal shopping, private security, limousine hire, in-room spa treatments and hair appointments, in-room picnic hampers and in-room mixologists with private bar. The hotel also contains some unusual and desirable extras such as the basement cinema, Harley Davidson or guitar hire and 24 hour rooftop garden and spa.
Striking, edgy, glamorous and contemporary, the guest rooms at the Sanctum Soho Hotel are truly breathtaking and make languishing in your room an all too appealing option! The 30 bedrooms have been designed to six individual themes, meaning that your room could be a combination of masculine, dark veneers and rich velvet fabrics, or perhaps a rococo vision of pink satin, or even an elegant art deco style with mirrored columns and beaded wallpaper. Wherever you end up, there is a range of modern facilities on offer that surpass any expectations of hotel accommodation. In addition to your usual basic amenities, guests can expect to find iPod docking stations, Wii consoles, free WiFi access, flatscreen TV with Sky channels and movies and air conditioning. Suites even come equipped with Guitar Hero games to make you feel even more like a rock star! Rooms are available in a variety of sizes from Crash Pad to Loft Suite, but all are united by the same feel of contemporary luxury.
Hotel residents should not struggle to find dining options in the surrounding West End area, but should they want to find something a little closer to home then the hotel's own No.20 restaurant is a classy and satisfying option within the hotel building. The venue has been decorated in a vintage and opulent style, with gold leather banquettes, oak panelled walls and glowing glass columns creating a refined yet informal atmosphere. The modern British menu serves traditional dishes with a twist in an aesthetically pleasing way, and the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. There is a neat take on afternoon tea with the Gentleman's Afternoon Tea, a masculine version of the classic complete with a tankard of Jack Daniel's and a cigar! The roof garden bar is also open throughout the day for both hot and cold drinks.
