Sanderson, in the heart of London’s West End, offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and well-being. The landmarked 1950s building has been transformed by Philippe Starck into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomising a new luxury that is smart, pared-down and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. With newly renovated rooms concepted by designer Tim Andreas of Banjo, the rooms maintain their sense of whimsy while offering state of the art details and luxurious touches at every turn.
Agua spa, Sanderson’s renowned temple of body and soul, offers a vast array of treatments to pamper and soothe, restore and resurrect. Multiple dining and cocktail offerings grace Sanderson. Guests can dine al fresco year round at Courtyard Garden, and its Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea is on the “must-do” lists of London’s elite. Purple Bar provides an intimate space for cocktails and conversation, while the Billiard Room evokes an old world clubby vibe.
Just steps from Oxford Street shopping and the Soho district in London, Sanderson is a five star luxury boutique hotel ideally located for weekend breaks or business travel.

I stayed at the hotel with my boyfriend for a week over new years and the entire experience was exceptional. Every single staff member was overwhelmingly helpful and courteous. The room was GORGEOUS - it is very spacious and the bed sits in the middle of the room. All interior walls are glass with retractable white curtains, which makes the room feel very large and luxurious.
The food was exceptional. We ate at the Long Bar, had drinks at the purple bar, and also ordered room service. In each case, service was prompt and friendly, and the food both tasty and satisfying. For meals out of the hotel, we found the Sanderson Concierge team to be incredibly knowledgeable, guiding us to both not-to-be-missed London Staples, as well as lesser-known local favorites.
You can't beat the location-it is perfect. A short walk to any of the West End theaters, fantastic pubs, and great shopping areas.
Our stay at the Sanderson was one of the best, if not THE best, hotel experiences either of us has had in our lives.
I have already recommended it to several friends and colleagues headed to London and will be sure to stay there again myself the next time I am in town.
Super sexy hotel. It has several lounges and quite amusing scent all over the ground floor. Its a hidden gym inside the city that takes away from the noise and immerse you in a sensual world that indulges every sense of yours. The rooms decor could be improved.
Discreet yet friendly and helpful staff. Superior rooms are impeccable and larger than the standard rooms yet with the same design sacrificing practicality flaws typical of Ian Shrager hotels; poor lighting, shower stalls that flood bathroom, door handles so small you can’t actually use them otherwise the rooms are quiet, good quality, comfortable beds, fine linens, room service is quick, food is good.
The so called “spa”, however, is quite a letdown, other than the fact that there is a steam room (which was not warm enough), a couple of massage therapists and some relaxation pods, (which are quite comfortable), there are no other facilities. The “spa” is clean and relaxing, yet the treatment rooms are separated by curtains so you can hear everything that’s happening around you. While the staff is friendly and efficient, the massage therapist did not take any of my requests into consideration and she just went through the same movements and sequence that everyone must receive and she completely ignored my requests.
Did not get a chance to use the gym, yet it looks like it’s pretty well equipped
Wonderful trendy hotel and staff. They went over and beyond to make sure everything was going smoothly. Location was perfect for business and leisure. Highly recommend this location if your traveling to London.
We visited for an afternoon tea. From the outside, the hotel doesn't look much but inside the are nice touches. I got the feeling the whole place could do with a clean new look. The food was nice although could have been a bit fresher - the sandwich bread was quite dry. Staff were friendly and helpful.
