Stayed here in early December with the family. Location was easy to find just off Trafalgar square, a minutes walk from the tube. Check in was quick and hassle free and the room was as described a large family room with a small kitchenette. Decor in the room was up to standard for a 4 star each floor has a... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in June 2014. The room was spacious and comfortable and was on the side of the hotel facing away from the street so was fairly quiet. We were surprised that there was no fridge or safe in the room. We were not offered any concierge help with luggage on arrival or departure. When we... More

I stayed here for 6 nights during the peak season in English summer and it was wonderful. It was a last minute stay and I had to keep my belongings in reception for a night. Despite a mix up on my end, the staff were helpful and friendly throughout my time. It is a mostly business orientated hotel, with a... More

We stayed in The Grand for a night this weekend. The hotel is amazing, very friendly staff and efficient. The location is very convenient for central London, close to Covent Garden, The Embankment, Trafalgar Square and just outside Charing Cross station. The room was ideal for us with a comfy bed, tea and coffee facilities and a water station just... More

Very well situated, check in/out stress free. Extractor fan in bathroom didn't work, bed comfortable.room size ok but needed a good dust. Didn't bother with the breakfast in the hotel, went around the corner to a Garfunkels. It's ok for somewhere to rest your head which really is all you need if you are out all day. This hotel is...

Beware rooms 624/626 I could feel the movement of the guest on and off the bed whilst I was I my bed. I could him him/her walking around their room. I could tell it was a single occupancy as was mine despite the double beds. I guess the staff know the problem hence putting singles in the rooms. It would... More

a good hotel in central London. Close to White Hall, the eye, and parliament. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a good work area on the second floor and the free wifi is quick and a plus. The restuaurant serves good food but nothing outstanding, this hotel is about location, location, location.

The hotel is centrally located, with elegant lobby. The rooms are not new but well maintained and very clean. The staff, both at reception and on the floors, are friendly and kind. A special thanks to Mr. Tadas.

Stayed here one night 15th November 2014. This is in a great location within easy walk to anywhere. I bought a package with theatre ticket which was exceptional value. Did not eat at the hotel. We purchased breakfast at Garfunkels nearby which was good and great value. Prices at hotel to eat were not that expensive but decided to eat... 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 a 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.
