I cannot think of any other place in London to stay. They really make you feel like Royal. After Buckingham Palace this is the Royal residence. They rate 10/10 in all parameters. The food, the rooms and the staff is beyond any words. KEEP IT GUYS!!

This is a great hotel, the service was great and so were the staff working there. The location is in the right area to tour Westminster and locations close to the shopping areas. The staff work hard to make your stay the best.

The hotel is really well located. Just a 2 minutes walk from Buckingham palace, 5 minutes to Big Ben, etc. The hotel itself is a good hotel, with very friendly staff, good breakfast and un general with good facilities.

Our group of six took three rooms in August. All of the rooms were clean, well maintained and comfortable. We arrived from the US in the late morning and the hotel was able to have rooms for us upon arrival, well before the stated check-in time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting London.

We were very impressed with this Taj hotel especially the courtyard which was a pleasant surprise in the centre of London. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast excellent. Staff were very helpful especially on check in. The hotel is located only one street from Buckingham Palace and close to parliamentary buildings etc. we will definitely stay here again.

I am a wheelchair user and both the staff and room were excellent. The level access shower was alittle tight although not a problem for me. I arranged an impromptu supper for a dozen friends in Bistro 51; the service, food and drink were all excellent and good value. I look forward to staying with you again.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood 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.
