Hotel of the week: One Aldwych, Covent Garden in London

The Terrace Suite One Aldwych

Luxury travel writer Felicity Williams takes a detailed look at the upmarket One Aldwych hotel in Covent Garden, London

The luxurious One Aldwych is the conveniently placed 5* hotel in the centre of London, in between the City and the West End. Just a few minutes walk from Covent Garden, this hotel offers the very best of luxury in the city.

The building, which dates back from 1907 was initially built for The Morning Post and is commonly considered as one of the principal Edwardian buildings in the whole of London. Now protected by English Heritage, this truly beautiful and imposing building will not fail to impress.

The staff, who are attentive, helpful and considerate are the first point of call on entry. It is not only the staff that make a fantastic impact, visually the clean lines and fashionable interiors are worth boasting; the hotel has a private contemporary art and sculpture collection of over 400 items displayed in the lobby and throughout the hotel. With a smooth check in, the deluxe room waited.

The hotel itself offers precisely 93 rooms and 12 stunning suites starting from the Aldwych Rooms to the Deluxe Suites.
