I was in London for 2 night unexpectedly in the midst of two trips. I chose this hotel due to it's walkable location, near many attractions and good restaurants, and affordability. The room was a bit dated and tired, but very clean. I found a comfortable spot from which to work in the lobby. The staff was warm and welcoming.

If you've never stayed at a Taj Hotel, you're truly missing out. This hotel is everything you would expect from the Taj group.

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.
