Luxury Hotel with Restaurant
In the Heart of Piccadilly Circus
Only when you book with Chic
Nestled behind the lights of Piccadilly Circus, Ham Yard Hotel is an extraordinary boutique design hotel as every bit as quirky and surprising as Soho itself. The hotel owes its character in a large part to the bedazzling interiors by owner-designer Kit Kemp, and her trademark mismatched textiles, idiosyncratic fabrics and sumptuous tapestries adorn every space of the hotel.
It’s not just the extraordinary interiors that impress. The hotel’s restaurant and lively cocktail bar are popular with locals and media-types alike, and there is even a vintage 1950s bowling alley in the basement. On the fourth-floor, a charming roof terrace gives stunning views over the Soho skyline; filled with herbs and vegetables, the terrace is also home to the hotel’s two bee hives. In the eponymous yard, Kit Kemp has created a ‘village’, housing a collection of independent boutique shops centred around an impressive bronze sculpture by Turner-prize winner Tony Cragg. With an irreverent style, seriously good facilities and a bold personality, Ham Yard Hotel is perfect for those who want to be in the heart of one of London’s liveliest areas.
Ham Yard Hotel is family-friendly, with interconnecting rooms that are ideal for families and a dedicated children’s menu in the restaurant.
Enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the hotel’s bar; the inventive menu has made it a darling of Soho’s media crowd. The restaurant is spacious, ranging from a laid-back conservatory area to a dining room filled with booths for discreet dining. The seasonal menu serves creative takes on traditional British favourites, and many of the vegetables come from the hotel’s rooftop allotment.
For a civilised diversion, Ham Yard Hotel serves an award-winning Afternoon Tea with a range of classic and contemporary treats, and tea-blends from neighbouring boutique My Cup of Tea.
All of the rooms at Ham Yard are spacious, and feature bold and playful designs by Kit Kemp. Each features large floor-to-ceiling windows, giving views over the London rooftops or the peaceful courtyard below the hotel. Bathrooms are elegantly tiled, and feature Rik Rak bath and body products. Some of the rooms are interconnecting, perfect for families.
Don’t forget to pack your cuban shirts and retro skirts: Ham Yard features an original 1950s bowling alley, imported from Texas and fully rebuilt in the hotel basement. The walls are adorned with displays of vintage bowling balls and shoes, and the Dive Bar serves a range of bespoke cocktails. Unwind with one of the treatments and massages on offer at the hotel’s Soholistic spa. If you want to stick to your fitness regime, Ham Yard has a fully-equipped gym as well as a state-of-the-art hypoxic studio. Shoppers will enjoy perusing the boutique stores in Ham Yard Village, from tea specialists My Cup of Tea to apothecary-style perfumer Brummells of London.
Ham Yard Hotel is situated just off Piccadilly Circus, in the heart of Soho. Take in a show at one of the many theatres and cabarets, or seek out fine-dining experiences and craft cocktails at hotspots such as Kricket or Bar Termini. Regent’s Street is just a short stroll away, home to some of the world’s biggest brands.
