TRIED & TESTED: ONE LEICESTER STREET LONDON

October 3rd, 2013

Most striking feature:

The rooms. One Leicester Street once was the St John Hotel, a hotel of Trevor and Fergus, two well-known chefs and food-entrepreneurs from London (St. JOHN restaurant). They closed the doors and One Leicester Street opened a restaurant, bar and hotel at the same address. It is part of the Unlisted Collection of hotelier Peng Loh from Singapore who can also count the Waterhouse at South Bund in Shanghai, Wanderlust in Singapore and Town Hall Hotel & Apartments in London to their collection. And they know how to run top notch restaurants as well: Table no one has a Michelin star, just like the Corner Room in London. And news of this week is that last the restaurant of One Leicester Street has been awarded with such a coveted star too. Congrats! Let’s talk about the rooms. There are only a few of them (three floors x 4 rooms) and they are equipped with every luxury. A lovely bed, radio next to it, Artek table and chairs, a bath and even an umbrella (we are here in London right? Though I was very happy I didn’t need it). From the window you look out over Chinatown: this district is adjacent to the hotel. So you are in the middle of the city. Within five minutes you’re in Soho and when you walk to the other side in Covent Garden. If you are tired after an evening of strolling through the city, then walk into the bar where you can order Award-winning cocktails.

    Now I had to look twice as the rooms look pretty similar to the rooms at the Kelly Hotel in Dublin ;)
