We stayed here in early November 2008. The hotel was in a great location a half block from Trafalgar Square and the Charing Cross Underground station. The Embankment Underground station was also a short walk away. We were able to comfortably walk from the hotel to Westminster Abbey. There are lots of restaurants and pubs (try the Sherlock Holmes pub... More

This was my second stay at the Club Quarters at Trafalgar Square. We chose it for the location. The hotel is smart and clean. Staff were efficient and pleasant. Our room was a "Club Size" double room, compact but not too small for two adults. There was a desk, phone, LCD TV, free and easy to use Wi-Fi, air conditioning... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night with a couple of friends. The location was great right in the heart of everything. We had a room on the 9th floor with views to the London Eye, Big Ben, Buck House and Whitehall. The room was very nice but cold, the heating controls didn't seem to work properly. There... More

This hotel is in a great location, right in Trafalgar Square. It's an easy walk to the tube, tour bus pick-up locations, shopping/restaurants along Strand, Leicester Square, etc. My room was average-sized for a European room, though my friend had a nicer, larger room on a higher floor. The front desk was very attentive and provided helpful information for getting... 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.
