Hazlitt s occupies three historic houses in Frith Street, just off Soho Square. When these were built in 1718 there were no elevators. There still aren t, but they have updated the plumbing, installed ensuite bathrooms and replaced most of the candles with electricity. This Soho home of the 18th-century essayist, William Hazlitt, is true to its elegant heritage. Rooms retain their original panelling and are filled with antiques and period furniture to match its Georgian pedigree. It may appear old-fashioned in todays world of modern, design hotels but it is bursting with unrivalled charm and character and still provides for every 21st-century comfort. Here the philosophy of the management is simple to offer the kind of accomodation they themselves would love to find in the heart of one of the world s great cities.
