The guest rooms at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star One Aldwych are soothing, simple and sophisticated, providing a nice counterbalance to the busy and exhausting city outside. All of the rooms showcase a minimalist design style, with stark white bedding, white walls, and gray-hued carpeting and curtains. The dark wood of the headboard and desk break up the mellow palette, but the rooms are far from sterile or unwelcoming — you’ll find original pieces of artwork in each room, along with a plate of fruit and flowers that provide bright spots of color. The adjoining bathrooms are filled with chocolate-colored granite and modern fixtures like a bright stand-alone bowl sink and luxurious power shower. Both spaces have large windows overlooking busy city streets, which promise all the natural light London has to offer. The rooms themselves are not large — an Executive room is 258-291 square feet — but the space is used smartly and there’s little chance you’ll feel cramped.
