Gracing the southwest corner of Leicester Square, The Londoner is referred to as the world’s first “super boutique hotel,” it offers a luxurious haven wrapped in an urban resort experience. Designed by the award-winning Woods Bagot Architects, The Londoner seamlessly blends modern elegance with a touch of theatrical flair, reflecting the vibrant energy of Leicester Square and the West End.

If you’re looking for a quick ‘drop-in meeting’ with a colleague or client, you’ll be greeted by a friendly and polite team and seated in the lounge area. My minor issue with many lounge areas is that the seating is designed for lounging (oddly enough). As a result, when we were both sitting comfortably in our lounge chairs, we were too far away from each other to hear one another speak. Our meeting didn’t last long. Looking around, other tables seemed to offer a slightly more conversation-friendly setup. After half an hour of yo-yo-ing to talk, we headed off. The coffee was completely fine for a space like this. The service was polite and friendly (though I did have to find someone to pay the bill). It’s a nice space if you’re in the area and need somewhere to meet. I would recommend calling to make a reservation and asking for a table if you need to have an actual conversation though:
