Covent Garden, London

Welcome to London’s cultured, independent hotel at the beating heart of city life.

One Aldwych is one of the very few hotels in London (or indeed the world) that can say it is truly independent. As such, everything is created and curated to delight.
Stepping into the lobby of this singularly beautiful building is to step into a moment in history, dressed up in style. Built in 1905 as the home of the Morning Post newspaper, it still inspires spirited conversation and connection. Today, the building’s Art Nouveau curves and stylish flair sit easily with the modern luxuries of this contemporary, forward-thinking hotel.
Known as the hotel for Londoners at heart, wherever they might be from, One Aldwych is at the centre of Covent Garden, London’s most exciting neighbourhood. For the curious minded, you have access to the finest entertainment and cultural adventures, with galleries, museums, West End theatres and the famous Royal Opera House on the doorstep. For those in need of rest and retreat, what about being cocooned in the Health Club, or having your favourite drink brought to your favourite corner of The Library, a private sanctuary from the streets.
Designed to be more than just a place to lay your head, each suite and bedroom embraces a stylish character that pays homage to the sense of modern, independent Britishness that One Aldwych represents. Think of the resident team as your friends with all the best recommendations for brunch, ballet, boutiques, exhibitions and little-known corners of the city you’ll love.

Food and Drink


Overseen by Head Chef Dominic Teague, Indigo’s menu exemplifies his penchant for British ingredients crafted into delicious dishes with a touch of imagination. Dominic goes to extraordinary lengths to source an incredible medley of foods from across the British Isles, working with a network of trusted independent producers who support his commitment to seasonal and sustainable cooking that is ever-changing and always exciting. Plates have both substance and style, imbued with the skill and passion of a team that celebrates flavour and provenance in every dish.

Lobby Bar

Whether its a morning cappuccino over the papers, a light working lunch or an after-hours nightcap, the Lobby Bar is where captivating conversations happen at all hours. A London institution – the Lobby Bar is a dynamic drinking destination at the corner of Covent Garden, known for exquisite and inventive signature cocktails crafted by our master mixologists.

Afternoon Tea

In Indigo, working to Chef Dominic’s brief of distinctively British with a tempting twist, classic scones sit next to chocolate and salted caramel interpretations served with rich ganache, and lemon and black sesame cake is topped with honeycomb crunch made with honey from the hotel’s rooftop bees.

For those who like their tea served with a dash of eccentricity, you’re invited to become Charlie in the Chocolate Factory with a very different sitting inspired by Roald Dahl’s famous story and served in our downstairs lounge. Fizzy lifting drinks, snozzberry jam, chocolate swudge milkshake and fluffy floss, the boxes stacked high of wondrous treats seem to be never-ending in our tastiest tale of all.


Lie back, get active or dive in at the Health Club. With indulgent spa treatments for total body and mind relaxation, a spacious Technogym studio and an 18-metre chlorine-free swimming pool, sauna and steam room escape the day in One Aldwych’s wellbeing haven in the heart of the city.
