The Charlotte Street Hotel is a firm favourite on my map of places to go. Just off the often manic beaten track of Soho this elegant eggshell green jewel offers all I desire from well mixed cocktails at night in the lively bar to a more civilized sit down and catch up with friends over warm homemade scones with lashings of cream washed down with fragrant cups of Earl Grey tea on a cloudy London afternoons.
I’ve been a visitor to this place since the start and even though I have always lived nearby I have been lucky enough to have to stay the night with work when it 1st opened its doors (you must look out for the bronze statue that greets you when you walk in – you won’t be able resist giving it a friendly pat on the head - I assume its allowed judging by the loving marks that have built up over the years!)
The bar is modern and light as are the rooms but they all manage to retain a feeling of tradition. Rooms are beautiful, I’m not sure if they still give you -yo yos and other fun gifts to remind you of your stay?
This lovely building is a perfect example of great Georgian design making it of my favourite exteriors in Fitzrovia and the West End. I’m not sure of room rates as my company paid when I stayed but I assume it’s not that cheap. Drinks are usual prices for a high end venue with expert bar and waiting staff.
As it’s a stone’s throw from Oxford St and places of interest like Selfridges, Greys Antiques Market, theatres, galleries and The British Museum (my favourite in London due to their breathtakingly Egyptian collection)
I imagine it’s always pretty full. The hotel also does fun film events, I’ve never been but always mean to so will round up the troops as I’m such a film buff, I think they play old classic movies or popular choices with a cocktail for about £30 (I can’t remember exact price as have only noticed it when dashing past) and forgotten to look when teetering from the bar in the evening!
Dress up, grab some friends and go and try. I guess due to the area its quiet an advertising and media crowd, I’ve often recognised people I have worked with over the years in there, but it’s a good mix of friendly people and international travellers.
Oh I love it here! It’s my favourite place for breakfast/coffee meetings in the area.
Like the rest of the group, it has great decor, extremely competent staff and excellent food.
And it’s always buzzing, too. Definitely check it out.
A beautiful place to take afternoon tea. I've never been lucky enough to stay at the Charlotte Street hotel, but the handful of visits I've made to the bar area have always been lovely.
High tea here is less likely to be booked up than at many of the more obvious establishments, and is possibly the best I've had anywhere. It's also a great location, very central but far enough from the tourist traps and throngs of shoppers.
I love to find a place I can take people to as a treat. Charlotte Street Hotel is a place I tend to go to quite often. The cocktails are great, and it's pretty relaxed. Personally, I see this as a stop gap venue... to recharge the batteries to go on to all the other great places in the area.
I was lucky enough to stay here for a night! It was a wedding gift from a good friend and I couldn't have asked for a better place to relax and feel welcomed after a full day of celebrating!
The service is exceptionally friendly and there are an amazing array of extras available- from the spa to an enormous list of DVDs available to be delivered to your room. The room service was also brilliant.
The decor in the rooms is restrained in colour but full of beautiful objects and you'll find everything you need and other things that you didn't realise you needed (like the "sleep well" essential oil spray for the pillow to ensure a great night's kip). After a full day of eating and drinking we simply asked for some fruit and yogurt for breakfast and were presented with a banquet of fruit (both native and exotic) and both yogurt and a delicious granola topped yogurt and blackcurrant compote.
I can't speak highly enough about this hotel as a place to stay. The bar downstairs is also a quality place to go for cocktails or a glass of wine. The best bottle of wine I've had all year was recommended to us by one of the cocktail waiters here in August- and the buzz in the bar is so much more than any other hotel bar I've been to. A first rate establishment that I wish I could afford to frequent more often.
Charlotte St Hotel is a good place to chill on a Friday night. Sat outside and watched the world go by on my day off work. The beers and cocktails seem to a flow a lot easier.
The food looked good and the place was busy with Friday night after work drinkers.
Would go back.
An expensive treat for sure- or just expensive- hmm. I love the look of the hotel from the outside and don’t be daft, course I’ve never actually stayed here- all I can run to is a drink in the bar- and even that means I’m a good few steps closer to not being able to pay the rent. Oscars is the bar downstairs and they serve some great cocktails. If you get a seat outside on the pavement then it’s nice but becomes much like any other place in town. Inside the decor is dated and far from hip- we couldn’t figure out what the connection was between Oscars, Charlotte Street and the massive bust of Albert ora King George (not sure which but nice tache!) that takes pride of place behind the bar (kinda reminded me of the bust of Queen Victoria that sits at the end of the bar in the Queen Vic on Eastenders- far from 'classy’). We were there on Saturday for a friend’s hen do- a champagne afternoon tea. 3 big tables of over excited women dressed in their best frocks- a lovely choice of teas which arrived very promptly as did the all the sarnies and cakes to the other two tables- we waited 30 minutes before ours were brought out by which time the tea had long been drunk and we were getting rather restless (and a little tipsy on our champagne). Maybe all just a little aspirational than any of us need- I’ll be happy with enjoying from the outside in from now on, rather than the other way around.
The whole point of hotels like this is that they’re meant to feel exclusive, not just expensive.
But this place doesn’t. It’s a nice place, but on a Friday night when the place is packed and they let us walk in without a second thought, the place kind of looses its edge.
It’s the first time I’ve been here, and after we arrived, I wasn’t that impressed any more. So we left and went over the road to Bourne and Hollingsworth instead.
There’s nothing wrong with the place, but if it’s not exclusive, it’s just expensive.
I’ve never actually stayed in the hotel but I’ve visited the bar a few times and it’s really nice…but you pay for that niceness. For cocktails expect to pay a tenner per drink. But if you can manage to grab a table outside when the sun’s out, sip your martini or your glass of chilled white wine, watch Charlotte Street pass you by - then it almost seems worth it.
Just don’t go in here on pay day after a few drinks and start thinkign you’re donald trump. You’ll find the receipts the next day and regret it - believe me I speak from experience.
liking it. you’ll need to save up a bit, but probably worth it. the bar is happening, the adjoining restaurant worth a try for lunch or dinner, and the location is great for sampling central London. the British flag flutters out front, lending an old world feel. Friday evening scene is rather fun, and gets very full, so arrive early.
I have stayed here once and loved it. Sadly I was on my own but the t.v. in the bathroom meant I could have a long soak while watching a film on tele.
Room service was delicious, takeaway breakfast was luscious - fortunately work footed the bill.
I’ve been here a lot for lovely meals and cocktails and highly recommend it.
If ever you fancy a coffee or a beer sitting outside and watching the world go by, you can do no better than the Charlotte Street Hotel. Although the service can be a little slow, it is an understatedly stylish place to hang out.
A beautiful hotel. Used one of their suites for a business meeting once - lovely.
Excellent place to meet friends after work. I have not yet been tempted to stay for dinner - somehow you can never shake off the feeling that you are in a hotel bar, no matter how beautiful.
I have also used the bar extensively for breakfast and lunch meetings.
My colleague’s heart sank today when he was not allowed to light up while enjoying a coffee on the row of bistro tables outside.
The bar is trendy and packed full of media types and various other suits. It’s very expensive but a good place for meetings if you’re on expenses.
I felt there wasn’t a lot of soul here when I was there and there are a million other places to drink in Fitzrovia that are cheaper and more personable.
Treat yourself and have a meal, drink or stay at this hotel. One of a growing trendy of hip boutique hotels, this doesn’t disapoint although it is pretty pricey; it is therefore worth going when others are paying! Highlights include a great wine list and some amazing food dishes.
I've never stayed here, but i have had a drink or two in the bar downstairs. This place is not cheap! If you are looking for a cheap pint i'd recommended heading across the street to the Fitzroy Tavern. £1.85 for a pint of samuel smiths. Anyway, the Charlotte St. Hotel does have quite a bit of charm and it's pretty good for business meetings. This is media central, so expect yuppies and advertising types. If you're planning on having more than a few drinks here, bring the plastic. A couple of 20 quid notes just won't cut it.
This is a gorgeous hotel. One of a group of seven and have been to 3 of them! Can recommend them all - gorgeous rooms, amazing breakfast, and an all round lovely atmosphere. The bar gets really really busy so get there early! It's a great place to hold an event too and there's a private screening room downstairs in the basement.
I actually have never stayed at the Charlotte Street Hotel (maybe next time) but often meet friends there for a drink or cup of coffee. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere, plus the neighborhood/streets is great. Tons of good restaurants around it.
