One Aldwych

You only have to push through the front door and enter the breathtaking Lobby Bar to know that you’re in for a treat. Despite the building’s weighty history – the 1907 structure was once the offices of the Morning Post – One Aldwych is a thoroughly modern establishment, with Frette linen, bathroom mini-TVs and an environmentally friendly loo- flushing system. Flowers and fruit are replenished daily, and a card with the next day’s weather forecast appears at turndown.

The location is perfect for the West End theatres and has become popular with attendees of London Fashion Week, particularly since many of the events are now held in nearby Somerset House. The three round corner suites are very romantic; a cosy screening room, excellent spa and a downstairs swimming pool with an underwater sound system playing soothing music may dissuade you from ever stepping outside.

Took my bf here for Charlie and chocolate factory afternoon tea for his birthday

Friendly staff
Got drinks and savoury sandwiches asap
More savoury offered and is free of charge. All were good, tasty but nothing exceptional. Nice to have tart and quiche as well as bread
Cocktail Charlie was amazing - fun and tasty
Tea selection was also good
Sweets came - looked amazing but didn't taste as good as it looked
Scones were bland and clammy texture
Apple compote good
Chocolate financiers were delish
Homemade candy floss fun and impressive 
Was a nice afternoon but wouldn't return


I stayed here for my 21st and was extremely happy! the service was amazing and without compromise, nothing was done by half. the staff were friendly and helpful and even gave us a complimentary cake when they heard it was my birthday. Highly recommend, brilliant experience and a very lovely spa.

A great example of a hotel committing to responsible tourism best practice yet not compromising on quality in any way.
