Paying homage to the city of London, the recently opened boutique hotel in Leicester Square is a marvel in design and architecture. The 16-storey building houses 350 rooms, six concept eateries, private members club-style space, a myriad of meeting and event facilities, cinema, as well as an entire floor dedicated to wellness.

Despite its size, the hotel remains committed to the boutique approach. Its guest rooms embody British sensibility with neutral palette, state-of-art technology, and comfort. The impressive collaborative design result by Yabu Pushelberg, James Robertson Art Consultants and Krishma Singh Dear can also be seen in the hotel’s curated wart collection.

The Londoner offers its guests a 24-hour access to The Residence, a private club hidden from the public with discrete spaces to unwind, be it to enjoy a reserve wine list at The Drawing Room or to sip a single malt at the intimate 14-seat The Whisky Room. The Retreat, a holistic wellness destination with a 25-metre pool and barber service, offers dedicated wellness, fitness and result-driven therapies.


The Londoner is defining a new era for British Luxury, marking the rebirth of Leicester Square and introducing to the world the concept of a ‘“super-boutique” hotel. Spanning 16 storeys in total, with the deepest habitable basement in London and amongst the deepest in the world, it is a feat of design, architecture and engineering. We are proud to provide a thoroughly intimate and personal boutique experience.

Our restaurants and bars reflect the city’s eclectic dining scene, with six unique hospitality offerings that honour and reshape the legacy of the West End. Concepts include Whitcomb’s, The Stage, The Residence, Refuel, 8 at The Londoner, and Joshua’s Tavern. Whether a decadent rooftop izakaya lounge that reimagines the informal and traditional Japanese style of dining and drinking, a contemporary take on the French Mediterranean, or an intimate neighbourhood bar that serves Gintonicas, draught beer and tid-bits, the F&B programme has been carefully thought through.
