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. If you exit the underground at Charing Cross station, the hotel is a 2 minute walk away (and that includes time for crossing the roads!). There are loads...

Its true about location, fanstastic and in itself enough to warrant serious consideration. That aside, the staff at front desk were fanstastic but the hotel itself, which looks luxurious is actually not. Its very basic room with formica type counters and particle board desk built into the walls. No mini bar and room service, beers included ends at 11pm so...

We have stayed in the Grand at trafalgar square three times so far and would not think of staying anywhere else. 10/10 for location 10/10 for value 10/10 for facilities. There is a 24 hours tesco on the corner, many bars and restaurants, all the sites on you doorstep. So easy to find your way about from this central point...

I booked this hotel on line and had no personal reference to go by. I booked for the location, but was concerned about the quality of the hotel based on the price of the rooms. When the taxi drove up I thought I was at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, what an amazing surprise. Once inside, the lobby was...

The major selling point of this hotel is its fabulous location, situated a few minutes walk from Trafalgar Square in one direction and the Embankment tube station in the other. There’s also a 24hour convenience store a short walk away, which is brilliant for drinks, sandwiches and fresh pastries, and a pub right across the road. We arrived well before...

The location right beside Trafalgar Square is the biggest selling point of this hotel.It would be extremely difficult to find a more central place to stay. Our favourite area in London is along the river and this is the closest we have ever managed to stay to the Embankment area. I have no complaints about the hotel which was exactly...

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.
