Room 220, Ham Yard Hotel, London

1 October 2014

Words: Gareth Rees / Images: Ham Yard Hotel, London

Ham Yard Hotel seems to have appeared out of nowhere, revitalising a forgotten space between Great Windmill Street and Denman Street in the heart of London’s Soho neighbourhood. Presiding over a tree-filled courtyard, Ham Yard Village, the 91-room property, with its long cocktail bar, restaurant and outdoor seating, comes alive post-6pm, creating the destination feel that Firmdale Hotels’ Kit and Tim Kemp – also responsible for the popular Covent Garden Hotel, among others – must have been hoping for. 

Ham Yard is more spacious than most boutique hotels, and filled with light throughout. It also has a gym with a hypoxic chamber, an original 1950s bowling alley, a 176-seat theatre, a spa and a drawing room-library. Our spacious Luxury Junior Suite, with its bright but elegant interior design courtesy of Kit Kemp, was awash with light thanks to the large industrial-style panelled window, and, among other welcome features, also boasted a walk-in closet and a bathtub with a TV. You couldn’t ask for a better city hotel room, or a better city location.
