This is a great place for a sty in central London: Parliament is only a few hundred yards away, and Buckingham Palace is just a pleasant stroll through St James's Park. Rooms are roomy and comfortable, and staff always helpful and friendly.

Great hotel, ideally located for being a tourist in London! You can walk to so many places from the hotel, or jump on the tube which is next door/ the riverboats. The service from the staff was fantastic. Close to the Southbank, Houses of Parliament, walking distance of Trafalgar Square/ theatres couldn't really ask for 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.
