Hazlitt's occupies a group of historic Georgian houses in Frith Street, off Soho Square. In 1718 there were no modern conveniences, but we have updated the plumbing, installed bathrooms and replaced most of the candles with electricity.At Hazlitt’s our philosophy is simple. We have set out to create the kind of accommodation we ourselves would love to find in the heart of one of the World’s great cities. Civilised surroundings; old fashioned hospitality; friendly efficient service; a location away from the roar of traffic, but within a very short walk of the most important attractions.

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night, whilst attending a concert at the Palladium, as from the moment you enter from the street it is like entering a luxurious Georgian Townhouse - the decor is excellent from Reception, The Library to the lovely Meeting Room.
Our Room ( Sir Joseph Banks ) on the second floor was extremely comfortable and the decorations stunning. The bed was very comfortable and unusually for an old building we were not disturbed during the night. This could only have been bettered by the inclusion of tea/coffee facilities in the room.
Breakfast was available to be taken in the room but we opted out as there are many eateries within minutes.
The location in Soho is excellent being only minutes away from many West End sights.
The staff we encountered were welcoming and helpful.
When we return to this area of London we will definitely consider this wonderful Hotel and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

The hotel was created from 4 adjacent London townhouses and retains that traditional feel. The rooms are traditional but comfortable and have all one could wish for - comfortable bed, great ensuite, tea and coffee facilities, tv, wifi etc. Rooms are named not numbered. On arrival we realised that our room only had a bathtub in the en suite but the staff immediately on request moved us to one with a shower which we had not specified on our booking. The room was also at the back so was very quiet even with the windows open.

I am really struggling to describe our stay, because it really was just perfect. In that way that it'll kind of ruin all other hotels for you. Firstly, for anyone else who, like me, reads the bad reviews first, it's bright and airy and spotless. Nothing musty, no weird stairs and absolutely no noise from the street. Anyway. We were upgraded (on our first ever visit) to a suite, Theresa Cornely, which was perhaps the most beautiful room I've ever been in, ever. The bed was huge and so comfortable with bedding that feels like silk. There's a snug where you can sit with a cocktail or read a book. The bathroom has to be seen to be believed.

As for the staff, I've never seen better. The two chaps running check in were incredibly welcoming, you just instantly feel at ease and taken care of. However, for me, the maximum praise has to go to housekeeping. I've been a chambermaid myself, and my goodness those rooms must be an absolute nightmare to clean with all the carved furniture and panelling. Yet somehow there was not a speck of dust anywhere.

I don't think that I would even consider staying anywhere else in future.

A lot of money was paid for a two night stay in one of Hazlitt’s junior suites. Despite being on the ground floor, and at the front of the hotel, the outside chaos was kept at bay in this little oasis of calm.
Unfortunately that’s where the good stuff ends!
Probably the tallest and most uncomfortable bed in the world made me yearn for the simple pleasures of a Premier Inn. The sofa and chairs, whilst quaint and in-period gave no support whatsoever. Why pay for a suite with a living room if it’s too uncomfortable to use...??
As for the bathroom.....a door so narrow that one has to shuffle in sideways; a toilet so high that you could barely keep your feet on the floor, and bath plumbing so archaic and industrial, I felt I was driving a steam engine when changing from bath to shower!
The staff are friendly and polite, but very jobsworth! Room service ends at 8pm, and an ill-timed request no more than a few seconds after the hour was met with a quite definitive No!
Without doubt, you pay for the location, the exclusivity and the historic ambience. You certainly don’t pay for comfort and relaxation!
This was a real let-down!

What can I say? Can’t fault the place. We were given an upgrade to Lady Teresa Connelly Suite which was fabulous. The attention to detail is second to none and we felt that prices for breakfast and drinks were very reasonable considering the position of the hotel. Our stay more than lived up to expectations and we will definitely visit the other 2 hotels in time. Thank you Hazlitt’s!

Location wise this hotel is perfect. Considering the price of the room ( we stayed in a deluxe double called Dr John Snow) I was surprised that there wasn’t a kettle to make a cup of coffee in the morning, instead we had to pay £7 for 2 cappuccinos. Also surprised that there wasn’t any complimentary water in the room.
This is also the first hotel we have stayed in over a special occasion where it was not acknowledged. In other hotels at best we have received a comp upgrade and worst a card in the room with a voucher for a drink each at the bar.
We had a reservation at Zuma for 8pm on the sat night and my husband went to book a taxi at reception only to be told ‘we will try and see if a booking is accepted and will let you know’ At 7.30 we went downstairs as hadn’t heard anything to be told ‘they keep cancelling, you’ll have to walk to the main road and flag one down yourself’ which considering this is classed as a 5* hotel this isn’t 5*service. Made more obvious when one of the doormen at zuma actually went and hailed a return taxi for us and came back in it for us to jump into to go back to the hotel, that’s service you expect.
This morning we went to put the tv on to snuggle and have our coffee to and the remote wouldn’t work from the bed; you had to get out of bed near the tv to change the channel or the volume, annoying. The bed was very hard which I liked but my husband struggled with and the pillows were way too soft.
I know it’s maybe only little things but it’s these little things that take a stay from ok to brilliant.
So, to summarise, it was a ‘fine’ stay but not excellent; we have stayed at other hotels for around the same cost and been blown away by the service etc.

We brought forward our one night stay from January 2021 to December 2020 as we predicted a London lockdown in the new year. This was to be our Christmas treat for each other, a one night stay in a luxury hotel less than an hour on the tube from home.
Hazlitt's delivered an impeccable service. We loved the antiques and decor of our room, Madame Dafloz. Instead of the bright lights of Soho we spent the evening curled up downstairs in front of the gas flame fire with a bottle of champagne and a light supper.
This was investigated by Sir Godfrey the resident ginger tom who did not think it worth bothering with. He is very refined in his manners.
The street outside was Soho-noisy until the inevitable curfew hour after which we did not hear a peep.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere of the hotel is very cosy and intimate, a perfect central London bolthole. If I have one gripe it is that at £300 per night room only I would normally expect a coffee machine or at least a complementary bottle of water. We will keep an eye out for special offers for the next time we play at being tourists in London. It was a highly recommended antidote to the greyness and pessimism of the current times.

Loved this hotel so much; the door is kind of private looking and blends into the townhouses along the street, which makes it feel exclusive. Outside, you have all of Londons vibrant life just a step away, but when you cross the threshold into Hazlitts, it's liked you've stepped into a Georgian timewarp.

We were greeted by very professional, friendly staff and shown to our room. All the rooms are named after people who stayed in the buildings (the hotel was formerly 3 townhouses in a row). There is much fascinating history connected with the buildings, and you can find out all about it while you are there.

The floors and stairs are wonky as everything has shifted about in the last 300 years; but much of it is original and it is decorated splendidly throughout. If not for the wi-fi (very strong), TV and kettle etc, you could easily believe you were an elegant couple from a long-ago time (our jeans and rucksacks might have shattered that illusion too!)

The room was beautiful with a four poster bed, antique furniture, heavy draped windows and a superb bath / shower; plus proper sized toiletries!

The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was dark and quiet. Air conditioning is available, but not needed on a typical English night in late summer.

We didn't include breakfast because there are so many eateries in walking distance, but it smelled delicious and we had been shown an area where we could dine, or have it served in the bedroom.

It was a luxury stay (our anniversary) but we felt it was money well spent because we both felt spoiled and came away feeling happy with everything; and a little smug because of the time travel trip :)

Stayed here for the night while in London to see a show. We picked Hazlitts as we’d stayed at the Rookery one of their other hotels previously.
We arrived early, as our room wasn’t ready they offered to look after our baggage and call us when we could use the room.
Our first room Major Roberts was lovely, although on the top floor it was well appointed, lovely large bed, shower over bath, and very luxurious. Unfortunately there was no cold water from the sink tap.
The hotel was quick to resolve the situation and change us to another room, Thomas Clarkson, this room was also very well appointed and luxurious.
Rooms are very quiet at night with no noise heard outside, considering the hotel is in the middle of Soho.
Would definitely stay here again and look forward to another visit.

Booked a night here for our 20th Wedding Anniversary and it couldn’t have been more perfect. We had the Duke of Monmouth Suite, which is just simply fabulous - huge bedroom with THE most comfortable king bed, a huge bath which is filled by an Eagle-who doesn’t need that in their life?!, a desk and chair, minibar and flat screen tv. Upstairs is a gorgeous lounge with another minbar, a fabulous walk in shower room with a toilet encased in a wooden throne! And then the pièce de resistance-the roof terrace. Just wow. Beautifully kept with gorgeous potted plants and flowers, a sofa, table and chairs, and retractable glass roof. A pure oasis up there. We were lucky enough to have hot sunny weather so spent a lot of time out there relaxing with a G&T! Plus it was SO quiet:despite being on busy Frith St, there was no outside noise or inside noise. Possibly the quietest room I’ve ever had. The staff here are so friendly and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble.I really can’t recommend Hazlitt’s highly enough and will definitely return.

Bathrobes are included. I don’t remember about the water, but we were greeted with very nice tea. We highly recommend this hotel, it’s walking distance to the theatres and safe.

Our room, The John Snow room had a kingsize bed( 180 - 210 cm across). I guess the sizes varies from every country, but where I come from a kingsize bed is 210, but I notice that some places it's not the same. Anyway, the bed in the John Snow Room was in the middle of the room, with plenty of room for my boyfriend and me. It was not a tight squeez, but very roomy and comfortable. It was a spaciously room too, beautifully decorated and a wonderful sofa in the windowsill. Velvet curtains around the canopybed and the windows. I loved it there, and I hope you will too. We are going back in september, so I 'm looking forward too that. 👍
