Highs + Lows

  • Excellent food from Chef Tom Harris, formerly of St. John. Fresh ideas, perfectly executed by friendly, knowledgeable staff.

  • One Leicester Street is the perfect, affordable, stylish option right in the middle of the West end. On the edge of Chinatown and a 1 minute walk to Soho.

  • Simple, functional rooms with everything you need and nothing you don’t!

  • You’re in Leicester square, clueless ‘tourists’ everywhere who get drunk and shout a lot.

  • OLS is obviously very new, they’re working out some kinks...shouldn’t stop you from trying it...but just saying.
