This hotel is in Central London, near Trafalgar Square and just off the Embankment and Whitehall. A short walk to Westminster Abbey, The London Eye etc. - it's a perfect location from which to see London.
The nearest tube station is Embankment and the nearest railway station is Charing Cross. It is located on the River Thames and is right with many UK government buildings. A fun fact is that the building was used by the Ministry of Defense during both world wars and was used by MI5 and MI6! You feel a bit like James Bond walking down the street - cell service can be interrupted - due to the old, thick building walls or its proximity to government buildings - not quite sure which!
It is a beautiful hotel with lots of history. Because of that "history", each room is not exactly the same size and, while we booked two "equal" rooms, one was decidedly larger than the other. Both were quite comfortable, however, and the amenities were perfect. A quick call to the front desk should help resolve the room situation and they will move you if there is availability - we chose not to move as we were already settled into the room and would have waited a day for a larger room to open.
Overall, a fantastic hotel in a great location in which you really feel like you're a part of London history.More
