The welcome

I was warmly welcomed at wedding reception and personally that can my room via the receptionist.

The room

I stayed inside room 20 within the first floor – a Master Bedroom Suite. It is a fairly generous size, utilizing desk and split table/eating area, as well as the cargo area pictured which was pretty comfortable indeed.

The place provided me with ample space to get on and do some work,?and that i found the location remarkably quiet, despite it’s proximity to the Subterranean.There is a balcony just outside the room, but it is not one that you have access to step out onto.

The bathroom acquired everything you might count on – a single basin, WC, shower and rain shower room above it.

Laslett specials

I chose the oak smoked cigarettes salmon fillet with holiday leaves, dill and buttermilk dress up from the main menus but this was hard to get, so I opted instead for one of the special offers – a tasty tomato in addition to goat’s cheese risotto, cleaned down with a 2016 375ml Terre p Mistral Cote du Rhone (other drinks are available from your minibar), followed by a chocolate brownie.

Other nice touches

There was some sort of?interesting mix of artwork on the walls with my room from your likes of Ann Hulanicki (the founder of the long-lasting west London retail store BIBA), Toby Mott, Brian David Stevens and Jerome Dodd, along with a be aware telling you more about the performers. I could have sworn the Barry Kamen picture of the torso was put upside down until I really took a closer look plus saw his name in the corner.


Rooms along at the Laslett start from 250 per night.

The finest bit

As well as its distance to a well-connected?Undergrond station, I liked the fact that this is the small hotel – adequately tiny for it to have a personal touch.

The very last verdict

The Laslett feels more like a property than a hotel. Rooms are fresh, interestingly-designed in addition to befitting of this elegant part of London.
