A mad old Georgian hotel for quirky, curious luxury travelers.

This Bohemian Soho haunt was once owned by painter-turned-essayist William Hazlitt, and its rooms often contain signed books left behind by authors. Creaky stairs lead past walls jammed with period paintings and antiques, up to old-fashioned, charming rooms fitted with all sorts of nifty gimmicks. A gilt-framed mirror hides the television; a paneled wall pops open to reveal a dressing table and mirror; and what you may think is a romantic seat for two, is in fact the loo. All rooms are air-conditioned and have complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions, mini-bars, safes, antique desks and REN toiletries. Being in the middle of Soho, the hotel attracts a clientele mainly comprised of film and music celebrities, but of the low-key sort. Most request their favorite rooms time and again. The excellent continental breakfast features noteworthy croissants and coffee, both of which can be sent up to your room in the morning. The residents' sitting room is open for light refreshments, but there is no liquor license. Nor is there a restaurant, but you only have to step out onto the street to be overwhelmed by Soho's pubs, coffee shops, bistros, bars and breakfast haunts --- the noise of which can carry up to the rooms, so bring some earplugs for bedtime.
