10 Manchester Street is taking a risk using the same name as another Number 10 in town, but we think itís a risk worth taking. This Number 10 is a boutique hotel of the highest order, and unlikely to be mistaken for anything else.

You can find it on Manchester Street in Marylebone, W1, which is a prestigious postcode if ever there was one. Itís a short walk from Oxford Street in one direction, and Baker Street in the other. Itís ideally situated, close enough to everything but far enough away too.

The hotel is part of the ďBespoke HotelĒ chain and is an unashamedly boutique hotel its core. Thatís meant as a compliment, as this is probably one of the best hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.

The exterior of the building is somewhat understated. Itís a red brick building the same as any others in the street, and itís only when you get up close that you recognise it for a hotel. Unless you arrive at night that is. Once darkness falls, the exterior is tastefully lit, highlight it from down the street. Itís a nice touch, and the lights are well done. Bright enough to see, but not bright enough to blind you.

The interior is contemporary, with just about every shade of brown imaginable throughout the building. The colour and decoration is tasteful and modern with a touch of class. The ambience is one of quality, and the deep pile carpets are just a hint of whatís to come.

The reception staff were warm, inviting and very polite. We were quickly processed and ushered to our room. We had a junior suite, which was spacious, airy and had just about everything you could possibly need. The highlight was the centre pedestal with an LCD TV facing front and back so you could watch it from wherever you were in the room.

The bed was soft and comfortable, yet supportive. A difficult balance that not many hotels get right. The room also had remote control curtains, which was a neat touch. The bathroom looked new, and was sparklingly clean. The towels were fluffy and the products were all present and correct. We were very satisfied with our room.

It isnít often I gush over a hotel, but Iím making an exception this time. The Number 10 Machester Street Hotel should be a model to others in the trade of how a boutique hotel should be. Itís posh but not pretentious, extravagant without being overly expensive and patient without being patronising. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a night in the city.
