These hotels a are all within the West End and therefore it can be noisy all night. If this is a concern then we would advise you to look at South Kensington hotels. The tube from Gloucester Road takes only 10 minutes to Leicester Square. Hotels in South Kensington are cheaper than in the West End yet offer access to hundreds of restaurants and bars not to mention museums and Harrods.

The Cambridge Theatre is one of the youngest and most attractive in London, having opened in 1930 with interior decoration by Serge Chemayeff of Waring and Gillow. These were completely restored under the supervision of Carl Toms in 1986.
A comfortable size for both plays and musicals productions at the theatre have included 1066 and All That, Heartbreak House with Edith Evans and Robert Donat, Billy Liar, Half a Sixpence with Tommy Syteele, Bruce Forsyth in Little Me, Peter O’ Toole in Man and Superman, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Fame, The Beautiful Game, Jerry Springer –The Opera and both the original London production and the current revival of Kander and Ebb’s Chicago.
Chicago is now the longest running revival in West End theatre history.
Chicago is the kiss-and-tell tale of Roxie Hart, a chorus girl who kills her lover as a career move; Billy Flynn, a sharp lawyer who turns Roxie into a celebrity; and Velma Kelly, a dancing jailbird with an ear for headlines and an eye for talent. Chicago, winner of six 1997 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, is a loving look back at vaudeville, a timely satire of the justice system, and a reminder of what great theater can be.
