Stayed here in January, good location rooms are ok size, upon check in one of the ladies with a strong accent looked like she could not be bothered to even assist with check in, besides that had a good time here. Thanks To Adam and Leon for making the rest of the stay a good one.

We arrived late evening after a last minute trip to london. We had done a fair bit of research before we booked The Grand. The car park that is recommended is almost 15 minutes away in soho central and its a fair walk with luggage. We go to london a fair bit so familiar with the area. The hotel is... More

The standard room we booked was of an extremely high standard, a wonderful spacious room with a view onto Northumberland Avenue. The standard of service from the staff was exemplary. Welcoming, professional and nothing was too much trouble. A fantastic stay at a fantastic hotel. We will definitely be booking again. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Spot on in every way.... More

We often meet friends at the rather grand boyds lobby bar at this hotel. So I was interested to try the rooms. They are standard corporate fare. Bland and disappointing , it is as if the soul of this grand building has been ripped out and replaced with a travel lodge interior. I can't fault the service or the cleanliness... More

Booked three rooms over booking.com but when arrived at the hotel we were told that they had only two rooms available. Bathroom of the room was not clean. Staff unfriendly. The only good thing about this hotel it is the location.

The fantastic location means that we book this hotel whenever we travel to London. The public spaces, lobby, restuarants etc are beautiful and there are good deals to be had on price.

The hotel is an excellent choice especially if you want to visit London's major sights. It is within walking distance from most of the city's attractions. You can enjoy a nice 10-15 minute stroll to the Buckingham Palace or the Parliament/London Eye or Piccadilly Circus. The rooms are spacious and very nice, with comfortable beds. The place is quite so... 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.
