had a recervation for January 3rd day. From the moment you contact recervation department was incredible. It was a very pleasant experience for my family, which included the traditional afternoon tea, everything was excellent, the service first, the person who took my family was a most high professionalism, and the hotel's excellent room with all amenities, once again thank you...

Spent my honeymoon at the Rubens and it was wonderful. The staff was fantastic, the rooms lush and comfortable, and the English breakfast is the best. The location is perfect, and we thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon there.

I stayed in “Rubens At The Palace” on Thursday 27th November for a function I was going to locally. Please note tripadvisor its “At the Palace” and not “At the Plaza” as you have it listed. Anyway this is “real” old world sumptuous accommodation. Its like stepping back in time about 70 years. My room was small – but this... More

I recently stayed at this hotel - now would only stay there when returning to London! I was travelling alone, and the staff made me feel like I was coming home every night! The location could not be better - right down the street from Buckingham Palace and so close to major sights and shopping. I cannot say enough about... More

From the time the front door is opened to the last goodbye the service, staff and food really could not be surpassed. Another benefit is the hotel's location; steps away from Buckkingham Palace, across from The Mews with easy access to all transportation. A return visit is definitely on my bucket list! Thanks Dave Brown and Joanna and all who... More

This hotel is right near Buckingham Palace, so it is convenient to the Hop On/Hop Off Buses and Victoria Station. This was my first visit to London so I had a list of things that I wanted to see. The staff at the Rubens couldn't have been any more helpful in directing me to the various sites on my list.... More
