Victory House is a cosy 86 bedroom boutique hotel in the heart of Leicester Square, perfect for movie fans who will appreciate the cinematic theme the hotel has as a nod to the district it resides in. True movie fans can even book into one of the stylish the bedrooms or suites which offer unrivalled, front-row views to London’s exclusive red-carpet film premieres.
Tucked away on a side street, be safe in the knowledge that you can drown out much of the London noise for a restful stay.
The bedrooms range in size from cosy, intimate rooms to large suites, all designed and inspired by the 1950’s cinematic glamour and finished with 50’s art deco touches such as dial phones and bellman-cart style brass dressings. The interiors have been designed to be gentle on the eyes with soft teal, grey and beige furnishings featuring subtle cinema icons and references integrated in an ode to the local dramatic heritage of the area.
We stayed in a very comfortable double and asked for twins as a friend was in town and we wanted to to have a good old girlie get together and indulge ourselves in a comfortable surrounding and rest. She’s pregnant so we planned to do very little other than catch up, watch movies and eat comfort food (and what better place to do that in, given its theme). Unfortunately, movie options at the hotel were limited but we had our laptops and Netflix so ordered deliveroo to our rooms and began our evening.
Unlike us, if you want to explore you have plenty of options. The hotel is in the midst of all the West End action. Whether you’re looking to catch a show, do a little retail therapy, or hit the quirky foodie joints in Soho, everything you need to experience London at its best is within walking distance.
There’s also a hotel bar and restaurant called Granaio on site which is inspired by regional and traditional Italian cooking. We had lunch out and was content with deliveroo dinner so took advantage of this the following day for breakfast.
The room is surprisingly quiet, we expected street noise but fortunately there was little which meant we could attempt a restful sleep.
The rooms start at £249 although these can fluctuate dependant on season. Save 10% when you book direct in 2019 using the code VICTORY10.
