There’s no grand entrance to Hazlitt’s – this charming bolthole is strictly for those in the know. Supremely elegant and consummately British, this hotel is spread over four Georgian townhouses – a decadent but discreet hideaway in sociable, central Soho.

Lavish period interiors (four posters, oak panelling) are cleverly combined with modern comforts (flatscreen TVs concealed behind antique mirrors) in a way that hits the sweet spot between historic grandeur and on-trend chic.

The cosy library contains signed editions by visiting authors, including Vikram Seth, Susan Sontag, Bill Bryson, and JK Rowling.

There’s no dining room – the continental breakfast is room service only. Order the bacon ciabatta, introduced by popular demand from regular guests. It tastes even better in bed.

Surrounding area

One among a smart terrace of Victorian townhouses, set back from the central Soho hustle on Frith Street, this hotel is within a few houses of the little green space that is Soho Square.

Soho is buzzing London’s central district, packed with restaurants, bars, boutiques and nightlife. The shops and boutiques of Regent and Bond streets are a few minutes’ walk to the west, while the West End’s world-famous theatres are pretty much on your doorstep.
