The triangular-shaped Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star One Aldwych (it sports a similar outline as the Flatiron building in New York) is situated in the heart of Covent Garden and has street views on all sides. So, choosing a view just depends on which street you want to gaze upon. The triple-glazing of the windows thankfully means that the action below will be seen and not heard, so if you opt for a room overlooking Aldwych, easily the most exciting of the views thanks to the busyness of the street, it won’t keep you up or disturb you if the goal of your visit is peace and quiet. On the opposite side of the luxury hotel is Wellington Street, which has no through traffic and partial views of the Strand for those who long to spot double-decker red buses flying down the street.
