Hip lodging, food and drink in a five-story Georgian building in Chinatown.
Travelers seeking affordable and trendy accommodations in London’s Chinatown or Soho neighborhoods should look no further than One Leicester Street, a fifteen-room boardinghouse with plenty of Old World charm. Here, the soulful common areas encourage guests to mix and mingle, and the in-house restaurant and bar led by chef Tom Harris utilize fresh British produce on a six-meal menu that includes in-house cured, smoked and pickled products such as bacon, sausages, hams and salted beef. As well, the cocktail and wine list is impressive. Guest rooms are located on the four floors above the restaurant and include Post-Supper, Superior and Suite varieties, each of which provide amenities such as Penhaligon bath products, flat-screen TVs, complimentary wireless Internet access, DVD players, Egyptian cotton bed and bath linens, gourmet mini-bars, iPod docking clock/radios, personal safes, hair dryers and bathrobes.
