The Nadler Soho is located just off Soho Square which is pretty much in the centre of London’s West End with its theatres, restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance. I am telling you about the location first because it really is the best thing about The Nadler. Around these parts hotels are pretty expensive (sometimes unreasonably so) but The Nadler is what you would call a hidden gem. It is in a fantastic location but it is reasonably priced. On top of that The Nadler is a really high quality hotel, which I would say is definitely punching above its price bracket.
The hotel is positioned right at the end of Carlisle Street, so you can’t really miss it. Once inside the staff are friendly and the service is efficient. I arrived a little early but my room, bar a final check over, was ready for me. While I waited I was offered a hot drink and made to feel very welcomed.
Once inside the room I was impressed with the space. It was really well designed with a huge king sized bed, a fully stocked kitchenette, a big bathroom and a desk to sit and work. The Smart TV was a very cool addition and I must also mention the GHD hairdryer which is, without a doubt, the best hairdryer I have ever used in a hotel. I wished that I was staying in London in the depths of Winter (it was May) so that I could have made use of the extraordinarily warm blanket on the bed. Instead I gave it a little hug and put it on the armchair.
The hotel doesn’t have a bar or restaurant, which might be a deal breaker for some business travellers, but it does have a meeting space for up to 8 people. The hotel also offers guests a number of discounts with local restaurants, including 20% off breakfast in Quo Vadis on Dean Street. It isn’t ideal but the hotel does keep the room rates low using this approach.
I took full advantage of the location and went out for dinner and a few drinks, coming back fairly late but not so late that Soho wasn’t still buzzing – it was Friday after all. Although the windows in my room were triple glazed I still heard most of the noise outside including the obligatory empty bottle dump that takes place around 4am in Soho. The hotel is in such a central location I guess this is the one down side, perhaps if my room had been on a higher level it may have made a difference.
Why book The Nadler for your boss? If your boss is entertaining clients in the West End this is a great hotel for them to crash for the night. It is reasonably priced, in the perfect location and the rooms are decorated to a really high standard.
