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

We have stayed in this hotel previously as a couple but this time we brought our 2 kids to London for a few days-we couldn't have picked a more perfect hotel. We we're give a great welcome by Rachael in guest services who was brilliant with our kids. Our room was huge and within 5 mins walking distance of Buckingham... 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

Have stayed in more than 30 hotels in London as I am a frequent traveler to the city. This is my favorite hotel by far. Convenient location, great bar, and uniquely decorated rooms that include interesting color schemes and fully upholstered walls. The bed and linens are fantastic and always a great nights sleep. Pillows among the best I've ever... More

This is an interesting hotel; rooms are adequate, clean, yet small and a bit dated. Service excellent and it is located perfectly- 1 block from Buckingham Palace. Breakfast is good. The food is well displayed on the buffet, and surely adequate, not memorable, but good fuel! I’d stay here again, but I would look for alternatives before I booked.
