I can't reiterate enough how PRIME this location is for any first-time visitors & tourists to London. You walk out the door, turn right and Westminster Abbey is right there, along with Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster tube stop and pier (where you can catch a boat to cruise down the River Thames) etc. We walked absolutely everywhere from this hotel - 35 seconds to Westminster, 4 mins to Big Ben, 8 Mins to St. James Park, 10 mins to Buckingham Palace, 20 mins to Soho, 30 mins to Hyde Park.
St. James tube stop is right around the corner, and Victoria Station (major station where you can connect to all lines, and where you catch the Gatwick Express) is a 10 min walk.
Wonderful boutique hotel, clean rooms, clean bathroom, turndown service, delicious breakfast at Fullers Pub. Rooms themselves are on the smaller side, but to be expected in London. (We stayed in a Twin room - perfect for 2 people and the beds pushed together wasn't bad at all.)
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We also left behind a poster / canvas print in our room and they called us when they found it and posted it to our address in the US the next day.
Price was also amazing in comparison to all other London hotels. We will 100% be staying at this hotel again when we visit - it's so worth it to be in the center of everything when visiting London!
