Warning - if you book via booking.com you potentially will get one of the old / unrenovated rooms! There is absolutely no mention of this when booking and the pictures shown are of the new rooms. The old rooms are nice and large and light and the bed is comfortable BUT the overall state of the room is totally unacceptable....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

I stayed in this hotel in December, traveling with a colleague/friend who had business in our London office. We chose the hotel based on proximity to our office and her previous experience with the property. We flew from the states overnight, so our room was not yet ready when we arrived at the hotel at 8am. However the staff was...

Would definitely recommend this hotel. It's pretty close to everything. Victoria Station is a 15 min walk away. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Made my stay comfortable. I could come back to this hotel.

Firstly, I have to start this review by stating that normally, we would always stay at the Landmark Hotel, so our expectations, are naturally high, and I had heard good things about the Taj hotel. It certainly looks the part and the staff are exceptional, however, I do have to agree with some other reviewers here - I was expecting...

This was a very nice experience - I loved the Comfort of the Beds and the fact that they were Big enough... The environment is so cool, just what you need after a very busy day... I'll be back here every time I travel for Seminars and will recommend this to my friends.

I expected so much more and ended up a bit disappointed on arrival. Don't expect a double bed in the classic 'double'. Smaller than a double and nothing special. Stayed in so many hotels that offer better rooms at a better price. Breakfast choices were good but the cooked options were only warm. Location of the hotel made up for...

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.
