About a stone’s throw from Oxford Street, you’ll find The Nadler Soho Hotel tucked away on a quiet road. Now, quiet roads are hard to come by in Central London, which is why this is a delightful hidden (quite literally…!) gem. The moment you walk into The Nadler, you just feel cooler. The sleek, yet unpretentious interior furniture in the small lobby feels very appropriate considering you’re smack dab in the middle of Soho, one of London’s coolest neighborhoods. During our stay, we are immediately welcomed by the friendly Nadler staff who quickly check us in and are happy to share useful information about the surrounding area.
We set off to find our room and are surprised to find a lovely card, bottle of champagne, and chocolates waiting for us! Our stay is already complimentary thanks to the kind folks at The Nadler Hotel, so this extra welcome gift is very thoughtful. As you’ll see, we didn’t hesitate to pop open the bottle… even if it was only 2 in the afternoon. When in London! That’s the famous saying, right? 😉
Only momentarily distracted by these gifts, we take in our surroundings and are pleased to find our room is furnished with that oh-so-cool contemporary style that we found downstairs in the reception. The colors are kept very basic, mostly sticking to white, black, and warm beige tones which I personally find very comforting. The four-poster bed is also a nice touch and despite the trendy, simplistic designs throughout, our room feels very inviting and dare I say.. cozy! Sometimes when staying at modern, boutique hotels you’ll find their designs visually pleasing but lacking in comfort. Thankfully, that is not the case at The Nadler Soho.
One of my favorite features was definitely the mini kitchen which included a microwave, fridge, kettle, Brita water filter, and Nespresso coffee machine. Amenities such as these allow travelers to save money by perhaps making their own breakfast or at least save their leftovers from that fabulous restaurant around the corner! And trust me, there are plenty of fabulous restaurants nearby. I’d recommend walking about two minutes to Wardour Street to find some great places to eat. But if you’re looking for something cheap and easy to take back to your room, there’s a grocery store just around the corner from the hotel as well.
The bathroom was pretty spacious and included his and her sinks which is always nice. After traveling throughout Europe this summer, I quickly discovered that rain showers are taking over hotel bathrooms! And I’m not complaining. Not to be left out of this trend, The Nadler offers a rain shower head as well as a large bathtub. I also loved the fact that there were built in speakers in the bathroom which allowed me to listen to whatever was playing on the television in the bedroom.
The Nadler Soho Hotel certainly falls under the category of affordable luxury which is what I’m always looking for when it comes to finding a great boutique hotel. Their four star amenities (and yes, there’s free and FAST wifi) combined with their friendly staff and incredible location made for a lovely stay. The convenient location was especially perfect for us, as we were only in London for about 24 hours that week. I’d recommend this hotel to anyone looking to be right in the middle of all the action in London, especially for a weekend getaway.. without the hefty price tag! They also have two more locations in Kensington and Liverpool which you’re welcome to read more about here.
