Stayed for 2 days with my son and mum to cut a long flight to Singapore, the location is great, room size is good and includes kitchen with Nespresso machine. Good service and breakfast. Really nothing to complain, price is not low but equivalent to other hotels of similar kind.

The location of the hotel is excellent. The rooms match your expectations from a Taj Hotel. The service is even better than what you expect from a Taj hotel. The staff makes you feel like royalty and takes every step to make you feel at home. They anticipate your needs before you can express them. Overall an excellent and memorable... More

We booked this boutique hotel online and we were amazed at the charm and unique hotel experience. Down a bit of a hidden entrance, it is in a lovely courtyard as seen in photos.

The hotel is a lovely building, and it is perfectly located (around the corner from Buckingham Palace), it has a great outdoor courtyard in which it serves drinks and dinner (sometimes), and it should be great, but it just isn't. It has a fitness center that is so small, with equipment so tightly packed (and old and poorly maintained), that... More

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.
