Of the many places to stay in London, I regret choosing this hotel. Although my preference, when visiting another city, is to wander - stay out-and-about and walk around all day, in the case of my most recent visit to London I was almost forced to because the hotel wasn't nice enough for me to want to spend time relaxing...

This is an iconic hotel where you will feel the comfort and serenity in the heart of London and in an environment of past and history. Close to main sites of interest (Buckingham) and beautiful parks. A must stay in London

Located 2 mins from St James Park tube / 10 mins walk from Victoria station, this Taj Hotel is a good base for a weekend in London and reasonably priced for the Capitol. Excellent service throughout the hotel (reception, bar staff, concierge). Our 7th floor room was fairly small, but the bed was very comfortable and the room had been... More

Quiet, classy and comfortable, this hotel is within walking distance of the Buckingham Palace, the St.James Park and Victoria station, and pretty much in the middle of all things interesting. The rooms are extremely neat, with contemporary furnishings, and extremely efficient housekeeping service. The hotel has a Michelin Star restaurant Quilon which offers Indian and exotic menu. Its Business Centre... More

I can only really rate this on the bedroom and check in service as we only really stopped here as it was close to where we was going out that night. So we checked in at 4pm which was very speedy. The lady receptionist was so sweet and helpful. She wasn't just a boring receptionist, she had a great personality.... More

Stayed here for a business trip - service generally excellent with very attentive staff. Room on small side- but well appointed / expected for central London. Breakfast the normal help yourself model - but of good quality and reasonable selection. Free wifi for emails / simple browsing only. Location good - a few minutes walk from St James tube station....

I'm a regular traveler to London and this has been the best hotel experience by far. The location, the comfort, the food, and most of all the warm hospitality of the staff (front office, concierge, room service, restaurants) was incredible. For my future trips to London (work or pleasure), I will look no further for hotel options.

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.
