The Nadler Soho: centrally located affordable boutique hotel in London

The Nadler Soho describes itself as an “affordable luxury boutique hotel” and it meets that description by offering 78 luxury rooms as a 4-star boutique hotel in the heart of Soho London’s cosmopolitan, eclectic and vibrant entertainment district. The Nadler Soho is located 400 metres from the Tottenham Court Tube Station and 850 metres from the British Museum. A variety of bar and restaurant options can be found within a 5-minute walk from the hotel. It is the latest edition to the Nadler group which has other hotels in Liverpool and Kensington (London).

All guest rooms offer unique mini kitchens and free Wi-Fi. Guests can benefit from a LED TV and free international digital newspapers. Nespresso type coffee machine with free capsules are also a nice addition. The room I stayed in on the 3rd floor was very quiet and comfortable, and larger than other trendy, more expensive boutique hotels I’ve visited in the area.

While there are other excellent hotels in the Soho (see our review of St. Martin’s Lane Hotel: cool chic in Covent Garden, London and the Firmdale group’s Soho hotel), you will likely be paying 300£-400£ or even more per night at these and other similar hotels. At the Nadler you sacrifice the chic on-site bar and restaurant or the Philippe Stark hype, for a much more affordable and I dare say, comfortable accommodations right in the middle of Soho.

Among the excellent restaurants and juice bars very close to the Nadler in Soho are the following:

– Barrafina on 54 Frith Street: a tiny Catalan tapas bar with excellent small plates of anchovies, sardines, Spanish charcuterie, cheese and a good selection of Spanish wines. Very friendly, young Spanish staff. No reservations, counter seating.

– Koya and Koya bar, both on Frith Street: If you love udon noodles, Koya (the original) and Koya bar (which opened this year) are the places to go. There’s always a long wait at Koya so you can try Koya bar a couple of doors down. Koya bar is the only place in Soho that serves Asian breakfast (from 8:30 to 12:00) — Japanese breakfast or udon or rice porridge with various toppings.

– Joe and the Juice on 46 Dean Street: excellent fresh juices (I love the ones with beets and ginger) in a cozy, cool small room with great music.

Further afield closer to Covent Garden are Dishoom (Indian Irani cafe and restaurant on St. Martin’s Lane: try the Bhel and black daal) and New Row Coffee on 24 New Row Street off St. Martin’s Lane.
