I found this hotel via laterooms in December 2014 and have now been twice. The quality is excellent the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The quality of the food in the Bank restaurant is excellent. It is very well placed to explore the sights and theatres etc. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you are prepared to pay... More

Very friendly helpful staff. Great location. I would recommend this hotel as the place to stay in London. Most sites within walking distance. Close to tube station when needed. Palace and park only a block away.

The Jt James' Hotel is a hotel with tradition. This being said: it is in no way stiff and distant. The Friendly atmosphere and staff and the hotel itself invite you to spend the evenings in the hotel itself. A place to remeber.

This hotel is outstanding value for money. The room was spacious, spotless, modern and very clean and had every modern amenity. Unbelievable at this price. The staff were very friendly. There is also an old world charm to this old London hotel. I would recommend it highly and will be back for sure.

The staff is friendly and very helpful. The hotel is gorgeous. The food is good, too, if you choose to dine inside. (But you should explore London!) The location is great - within walking distance of several tourists attractions, like Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, etc. It is also very close to the Tube (or subway)...

The hotel can't be better situated, 2 minutes walk from Buckingham Palace and all the amenities of the area. Built around a square just of the road, the quadrangle is charming with its terracotta tiles telling tales from Shakespeare. Couple this with staff achieving the very high standards of the Taj group and prices reasonable for the area, you really... More

This was a fantastic stay and we would highly recommend this to others. The location was excellent, just a few blocks away from all major attractions. The Michelin star Indian restaurant on-site, Quilon, was really good. We dined there several times and can't wait to go back. Our room was nice and clean, although it's an older hotel that has...

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
