Expert review of No.5 Maddox Street

Don’t tell anyone! This is a luxurious secret hideaway just off Regent Street.

Through an unremarkable brown door beside a Thai restaurant, stairs lead up to a dozen chic, minimalist serviced apartments. That means fully equipped kitchenettes for independent types, but hotel mod cons should you prefer a little pampering.

Location: 

Excellent, especially for shoppers. No.5 is just across Regent Street from the fabulous Liberty department store, with the restaurants and nightspots of Soho beyond it. To the west lies the exclusive boutiques and restaurants of Mayfair.

Bedrooms: 

Opposite reception is the building-wide Bartlett Suite: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge lounge-diner with fully equipped kitchen and two little terrace areas. The other apartments are less grand (just one or two bedrooms), but fully equipped kitchenettes, Wi-Fi, flatscreen TV/DVDs and Asian-inflected minimalist décor run throughout. Swinging Sixties black-and-white photos of Soho set off bare bamboo floors with soft rugs.

Public areas: 

The stairs lead up to a small first-floor reception area, with an aquarium and DVD library - but not much else. There’s no lift.

Eating and drinking: 

Reception will provide a decent breakfast and snacks, and get your shopping done for you if you’re feeling lazy. Otherwise, No.5 is perfect for independent-minded types who don’t want to be at the behest of hotel caterers - the handbook of local eating (including that Thai restaurant, Patara, downstairs), shopping and attractions is well put together if you don’t fancy cooking for yourself.

Leisure facilities: 

None, but reception can arrange spa treatments in your room.

Service: 

These are serviced apartments so there's no formal room service, but the staff at reception are happy to respond to requests from guests and do provide breakfast and snacks if you're disinclined to cook for yourself.
