The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had a beautiful window seat overlooking Northumberland Ave. The ceilings were very high with beautiful crown moldings. The room was larger than we expected, but it still felt cozy. The bathroom was slightly odd -- it looked like a pre-fab bathroom that was inserted into the room; the ceiling of the... More

This hotel was booked on Booking.com, at a reasonable price in comparison to many others in central London. The building was beautiful. We went for a small Queen room as we knew we'd be out a lot of the time seeing the sights. It was bigger then we expected it to be with everything we would expect. The bar in... More

The staff were very friendly on arrival/check in but we were later told we were not allowed into the main bar to buy our drinks and... 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.
