Inspired by history, named after the 18th-century writer William Hazlitt who lived here, Hazlitt’s is a very particular hideaway with Soho’s heartbeat on its doorstep.

Highlights
Features
Location
  • The hotel spans three houses, all filled to the brim with collectibles and antique furnishing that go in hand with the period facade.

    Outside the hotel you’ll encounter the fast beating pulse of Soho and West End with all their craze and modernities but inside you should feel as if you stepped back in time to a much calmer oasis of the 18th and 19th century.

    Surrounded by dark mahogany, four poster beds, working fire places, and Victorian bathrooms you can begin to imagine the life here few centuries ago.

    Good to Know

    The properties that Hazzlit occupies are listed which means that certain comforts in life aren’t available – there is no lift, some of the rooms can be quite cozy, and a lot of amenities such as as bar or restaurant have been left to Soho to provide.

    Also don’t expect spanking new flat-screen TV, i-pod docking stations or similar mod cons. It simply wouldn’t fit with the hotel’s ambience.

  • Accommodation

    30 rooms – Club and Superior Doubles, Deluxe, Junior Suite, and Duke of Monmouth (a two storey suite).

    Prices start from £215 a night, not including breakfast.

    Eat & Drink

    The hotel has no restaurant but that’s hardly an issue given its central location.

    By way of drinking, you can pour yourself and your company a drink in the honesty bar.

    Activities

    Nothing on the premises but London’s West End and Soho are on your doorstep.

    Relaxation

    You can relax with a good read and a drink in the hotel’s library. Alternatively you ask the hotel to arrange an in-room massage, beauty treatment or a session of yoga.

    Essentials

    Parking – not available but there are some public car parks nearby.

    Wifi – free throughout.

    Room service – some snacks available pretty much any time.

    Children – welcomed with assistance of extra beds, babysitting and cots (free) provided.

    Pets – not allowed to our knowledge.
