We’ve fallen in love with Covent Garden’s One Aldwych. An intimate gem right in the heart of the theatre district and surrounded by many of London’s best cultural hotspots, boutiques and restaurants.
The Edwardian building of this five-star independent and privately-owned luxury hotel, was originally the home of The Morning Post. The Lobby Bar was the paper’s beating heart and the presses rolled in what is now the swimming pool.
What You’ll Love About One Aldwych
The location just doesn’t get any better. One Aldwych resides in the heart of theatreland and is just around the corner of Covent Garden piazza.
2. Sound-proof windows
Being in the heart of the bustling city doesn’t mean you can’t get a good night’s sleep. At One Aldwych, you can rest assured that you’ll enjoy both!
3. Authentic staff
The authentic care of the staff makes you feel right at home. They even went out of their way to prepare my in-room customised smoothie. Because of my bad handwriting, it was quite a challenge to understand the ingredients I’ve written down.
4. 18-metre chlorine-free swimming pool
Go for a refreshing swim at the 18-metre indoor swimming pool (with dedicated splash time for kids!) so you’ll be sure of a kid-free swim.
Watch cute ducks, sea lions and other sea animals projected on the screen and enjoy the underwater music system and the pool’s soft mood lighting.
5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea
Indulge your inner child and discover the magical and mouth-watering world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with the enchanting afternoon tea – inspired by Roald Dahl’s iconic story.
6. Fully-refurbished Guest Rooms & Suites with Complimentary Mini-Bar
All guest rooms and suites were fully refurbished in 2019. The decor is calm, intimate and pastel-coloured! The curvy walls match the architecture of the building. And to top it off, all guest rooms and suites come with a complimentary mini-bar.
7. In-room Amenities: Dyson Hairdryers!
Besides the complimentary mini bar, we love the in-room Dyson hairdryers. As well as the in-wall plugs to charge your devices without needing a separate multi-country adapter.
One Aldwych is committed to embracing sustainable tourism and reducing its carbon footprint with initiatives such as the bee-friendly rooftop garden, complete with beehives and SLS and paraben-free natural toiletries from Mitchell & Peach.
As well as the hotel-wide no bleach policy and the chlorine-free swimming pool using a mineral-based cleaning system.
9. Private Cinema
One Aldwych is home to a 30-seat Private Cinema. Watch the latest movies with just the two of you. Or book one of the Film & Fizz nights, a unique cultural-meets-culinary experience in partnership with Curzon. Settle into the intimate cinema with freshly popped popcorn, a glass of Henners Sparkling Wine and a meal (with non-alcoholic options for the mum-to-be)
