Victory House London Leicester Square is MGallery’s first London hotel, its flagship UK property and the fifth hotel in the MGallery by Sofitel UK portfolio. Designed in partnership with renowned architects Michaelis Boyd, the hotel’s interior has been carefully curated to emulate the rich cinematic history of its landmark location.

In addition to Leicester Square’s iconic cinematic history, the rich heritage of the building has influenced the hotel’s interiors. Victory House retains its original 19th century terracotta façade and stands as an unwavering icon within the ever-evolving Leicester Square. Originally built in early French Renaissance style in 1898, by leading theatre designer Walter Emden, Victory House was previously known as Hôtel de l’Europe, with a Parisian brasserie renowned in its heyday as a popular dining spot in the West End. The building’s distinct character is evident throughout the design of the hotel, where understated nostalgia meets sleek modernity.
