This intimate hotel in the heart of Soho is a short stroll from Covent Garden, Piccadilly and Bond Street and prides itself on its old-fashioned hospitality and exceptional service. To remain faithful to the hotel's Georgian origins, rooms are traditionally furnished with paneled walls and homely pictures and rugs.
Several years ago, my husband and I spent a wonderful 8 days at this gem of a hotel. What a pleasant and historic experience. More like a home than a hotel, every afternoon I cosied into the down sofa in front of a gas fire and had tea, cakes and a good read (behind the front desk are books left behind by the authors that are available for your reading pleasure). We met interesting people and the staff are beyond compare. The charm of this hotel is evident in every crooked line and ancient but perfect piece of furniture
. Not a plumbline in the place, but that is so fantastic and fairy tale inspiring to us. (Heck, I no longer have a plumbline on my bod and I am only 52!)
If you are looking for top-notch service with a friendly and welcoming attitude, come to Hazlitt's. What a place! We look forward to our return and plan on spending a month en suite. Home away from home, but better!
