Tradition and modern flair are fused together in this super-stylish Soho retreat, beautifully decorated with unique printed fabrics from designer Kit Kemp. Bathrooms are truly impressive, lined with gleaming granite and oak—with walk-in showers and flat-screen TVs, so you can catch up on the news while you soak in the deep tub. The restaurant, Oscar, is excellent for European cuisine, and the bar is a trendy (though pricey) local hangout. You can indulge in a delicious afternoon tea by the fire in the spacious drawing room. They run a Sunday night film club here that's excellent value: a three course dinner or afternoon tea, plus a movie in the plush private screening room, for just £35.
