This hotel has many great features - very convenient location to many of London's historical/political attractions, less than 2 blocks from the tube station, a restaurant just downstairs and many more nearby, clean rooms, comfortable beds and more free amenities than I have seen in a while.

This small hotel is just of Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and St.James Park. The rooms are luxurious and quiet. Breakfast is served in the downstairs pub. Staff helps and advises you with a smile. Ideal spot for a weekend break.

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.
