In a former MI5 research building, Sanctum is Soho club cool with its dark colours, bling room handles and deco lamps, sexed up with a handful of rotating beds and a no-questions-asked policy. The rooms follow one of four colour schemes, broadly deco or powder-puff boudoir in style, with plenty of mirrors and an unspeakable number of TV channels. The residents-only, 24hr-means-24hr bar is small but funky, opening on to a two-level terrace outside, which is topped off with a multi-person jacuzzi. The fun continues with a guitar-tuning service at reception, a smoothly run and darkly handsome bar-restaurant, louche art in each room and a screening room for hire downstairs.

Great, fun hotel. Unique boutique with a rock and roll feel. Individual rooms, great staff. Very welcoming. Bar is great fun. Excellent vibe. Well worth staying in for something boutique with an edge.

The Man on the Street

Over the door it says Hotel, Restaurant, Bar and Cinema. In fact there's even more to discover when you pass through those revolving doors. The Cinema is in the basement and doubles as a really cool live venue and club. The ground floor restaurant and bar are OK, but I urge you to head to the roof. Great bar with a very cool vibe. The music throughout this hotel matches the artwork. Quality with odd Rock classic thrown in. Where else will you get Debbie Harry watching over you in a corridor or Jimi Hendrix in stained glass throwing colour onto the lobby floor ? As Soho changes in character, lets be grateful that some are choosing to remain bohemian.
