A lovely hotel with an old world charm in an excellent location in London. It is walking distance to Buckingham Palace and shops and restaurants. It is expensive but maybe for such a prime location it is priced right. If I could afford to do so, I would certainly return.

Having stayed in Taj and other great hotels in India such as the Oberoi, I was looking forward to the three day stay in the London Taj. There is no doubt that the hotel is housed in a magnificent building in a good location but I still left feeling somewhat disappointed. There were a number of reasons. The executive double...

Our room was ready early for us, and international flyers will be glad of that. Our room was large.

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.
