Excellent staff, hotel very clean and beds perfect for a restful sleep. Restuarants very good food, wine a little pricy. Breakfast selection very good. Taxi rank just across the street but easy walking distance to Victoria Underground. Not a lot of traffic comes by, so noise level is low. Coffee shop across the road if you want to do that....

The hotel staff were all warm friendly and welcoming,our room was comfortable clean and quiet, although the view out of the windows could have been better. The hotel itself was very smart ,very clean and clutter free. And situated in a nice part of London.

Understanding all hotels have to maintain a high level of comfort which involves constant improvements but when this involves very high cellulose odours passing throughout the main reception causing short of breath and stinging in our eyes it is not acceptable.

Very nice hotel overall! Staff were very polite and helpful. Lovely view of the courtyard from our hotel room. Breakfast included was very good and staff were very efficient with their service. Only critique I have would be the quality of the room, the walls were a bit damaged and could have easily been fixed. Happy to stay here again...

Arrived at 8pm on a business trip and had booked an "Executive room". Normally I stay at Marriott Hotels but wanted to give Taj a try. Nice welcome by a porter, helping with my luggage. Grand lobby with piano music, good first impression. Got a room on 7th. Floor and had a really bad surprise. Instead of "executive" a tiny...

I cannot understand how anyone could give this hotel a negative review. It is absolutely lovely. From the minute I arrived until the moment I left, the service was impeccable and the accommodations of the upmost comfort. The location is very central. It is just a five minute walk from the st James park tube station, but on a quiet...

The building was beautiful and the staff friendly and effective. The room i stayed in had some sort of on demand water heater which made a loud noise when you used any hot water heater.

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.
