This is a very nice hotel near Buckingham Palace and only a few block from Big Ben and Westminster Abby. The rooms are nice and some have great views. I would classify it as a boutique hotel with a lot of character. You can sit and have a drink or dinner in the lobby or outside in the courtyard.

Conveniently located near the st james park underground and a short walk to Victoria street and station. Staff were friendly and helpful mostly. Stayed for 5 nights, the room was comfortable and reasonably quiet until the construction next door started.

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.
