Was lucky enough to be booked into Arlington House for a 3 day stay in London in March, as opposed to 'Standard' business hotel. Room and facilities within it were excellent and front desk staff helpful & friendly. In particular, I arrived a little earlier than normal check-in time but as room was available, was able to get entry. Didn't...

It is not my first time or the second to stay at Arlington House Apartments. No matter how many times I come to London, the only place that is going to satisfy me is this one. Since we are a big family, this type of hotels suits us the best. It is very basic and modern, nothing fancy. The reception...

Apartment Block rental in Central London in a quiet cup-de-sac adjacent to the famed Ritz Hotel. Ideally situated, only minutes away to Green Park Tube and bus services. Rooms can overlook Green Park. Royal Academy is just across Piccadilly. Only a 10-15 min easy walk to Hyde Park,Trafalgar Sq (NPG & St Martin's), and theatre district. Plenty of local restaurants...

The Arlington House is not a hotel, but a short-term rental apartment building. They call the rooms flats or apartments and pretend they don’t even understand you if you talk about your ’room’… Some of the front desk staff are friendly, others not so. You will get a nice, clean, modern and spacious room (my superior studio room with garden...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
