One Aldwych occupies one of London’s stand-out buildings. The triangular building which sits at the end of The Strand, opposite Waterloo Bridge, has had a varied life operating under many guises before becoming the hotel we know today.
The hotel is located in an Edwardian style building constructed in 1907 by the same architects who designed The Ritz. It is located on the corner of The Aldwych and Wellington Street, adjacent to the Novello Theatre and opposite the London Transport Museum. For many years the building was used for The Morning Post newspaper office purposes. In 1998 the hotel was restored by Jestico Whiles Associates who purposefully retained its Edwardian style, and also included Louis XVI ornaments to furnish it, including a 400 piece art collection. The exterior is also made from Norwegian granite.
With over 400 pieces in the hotel’s private art collection, guests are always excited by the contemporary art and sculpture that is on display throughout the property.
Flowers at One
The flowers at One Aldwych are one of the hotel’s defining features, from the unmissable displays in The Lobby Bar to the individual arrangements in each bedroom. All are created by our in-house florist, the extremely talented Mark Siredzuk.
