Tucked between the National Gallery and Leicester Square itself, this four star boutique hotel is the perfect hideaway in the heart of the West End. Cool and clutter-free, with soothing pale leathers and striking original art, there’s a sense of tranquility rare for a central London hotel.
The Leicester Square Bar & Restaurant is a welcome retreat from the hustle of its namesake, an intimate space with a pleasantly relaxed vibe.

Morning: Avoid the tourists and slip into the National Gallery via the Sainsbury wing - go up the stairs and turn left. Pause at the Leonardo cartoon before strolling through to the Pollaiuolo brothers' spectacular Martyrdom of St. Sebastian. Around you are four or five of the best rooms that any gallery in the world has to offer.
Noon: Enter Chinatown and make for the New World on Gerrard Place for immaculate dim sum drawn around the room on trolleys. When you've drunk all the tea, invert the lid of the pot and more tea will arrive.
Night: Bar Italia on Frith Street remains the hippest street bar in London without even trying. Grab a table outside and enjoy London's best coffee while the nightlife unfolds before you.
