The Sanctuary House Hotel has an excellent location in walking distance to Buckingham Palace, St. James Park, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Thames! The hotel is clean and nice with a friendly accommodating staff.

I just needed a bed for the night and a good night's sleep - I got both. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The bar was perfect for a beer with colleagues. I'd be happy to stay again and recommend the hotel to others.

My Mum recommended this hotel and then proceeded to book two nights for when my brother and I arrived in the UK. It was fabulous. It must be new as none of the cab drivers we had knew exactly where it was. Luckily Mum did! The pub downstairs serves an unusual and somewhat confusing breakfast - but we got there... More

We loved this "boutique" hotel. We only stayed for two nights prior to a cruise but it was in an excellent location to tour London. Also, it was directly over a Fullers Pub and this too was a great place to go for dinner and drinks. The staff was very helpful and the room was very comfortable. We plan to... More

I stayed here with my wife last week, we received a friendly welcome and our room (204) was average for London hotels, the only problem was the mattress on the bed sloped to the middle, but they promised to address this in future. Loved the location a short walk to all the major attraction in Westminster. My favorite aspect of... More

Very pleasant hotel with a great room. The location in the city is fabulous. Did not like having the room next to the elevator or against the common wall with the construction next door. The pub was excellent with very good food and service.

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.
