Be careful, breakfast is not included in the price of the room and is very expensive. £5 for a glass of OJ or a cup of Coffee. For the same price you can get a full breakfast in the "Garfunkel's" cafe just yards up the road. When we made our reservation there was no mention that the rate was roon-only...

Would I stay there again? Yes. Would I recommend to family and friends? Yes. Why? You're half-a-block from Trafalgar. If you are in London to site-see this is the Hotel. Alot of the reviews complain about size and the luxury of the hotel. Your in London! If I wanted to stay in a luxury hotel, I could find one a...

The hotel seems to have fallen on hard times: a "grand" hotel with an echoing, empty lobby. Once you find the desk, though, the perfectly polite staff (the motivated young foreigners you find all over London) sends you up to well-furnished rooms. We didn't need the kitchen space for our overnight stay, but I was won over by the selection...

If your plan is to see London, this is an ideal location. It is in the heart of central London. However, if your plan is to see London and enjoy a nice hotel - this is not the place. Everything you might need is here, but in small quantities.If you leave the bathroom door open, you can't leave the room....

This is a decent hotel that is completely updated, but with no frills. It was clean and adequate, but lacked any services. Our room was clean and modern, but the bathroom looked as if it was an afterthought added in the corner of the room. A hotel computer was provided free of charge, but the internet connection was horribly slow....

Recently stayed at the Grand. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the grand exterior and outstanding location. If you are looking for a decent hotel which is in easy reach of most of London's attractions then this is the place! It is a minutes walk from Trafalgar Square, up the road from the Thames (and across from the...

For me, this was almost a perfect stay (minus the billing). The hotel is well located close to Trafalgar Square at a reasonable price. It's also close to the pier for the O2 express (I was in London for a concert in O2 and found that the express boat was the best way to get there). The single room was...

My daugher and I stayed a week at the Grand and really loved it. The front desk personnel were always there but low key which is what I prefer. My favorite feature is the free filtered water service near elevator. What a savings and so convient to grab some cold water on my way out. We felt very safe walking...

My husband and I traveled to London for the first time and were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The hotel seems like more of a business hotel, however for our stay (7 nights), it was perfect. The location couldn't have been better. You are within walking distance to many of the main attractions that London has to offer. The rooms...

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel with my girlfriend as we were going to see Chicago the musical and also wanted to do some sightseeing. The location i simply cannot fault.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
