A good hotel, conveniently located close to Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey. St James Park tube (can feel the train vibrations!) and Victoria Station complex. Standard room is a bit on the small side, but this is Central London. Breakfast is quite adequate. Service is good. Public areas are quite classy. The décor reflects the Indian ownership but in a tasteful...

Stayed 2 nights, nice hotel. Staff efficient and friendly. Double room a good size for London. Decor a little tired perhaps but not too bad. A special shout out for letting me check in to my room at 8am after flying in from Australia! Great location, close to sights and transport. Would definitely recommend.

There is always a first time and this was it at St. James Court. We didn't really have much to complain at our previous stay at this property previously, but it all came undone this time. House keeping and front desk services, well below the hygiene factor expected from this property

The best word I could use to describe the second-tier level employees (i.e. not the waitresses or the busboys or the initial responders, but the managers, the lead maintenance employee, the front desk and in-house meal receptionists) is incompetence. It took nearly 24 hours, with multiple failed attempts, lost of confusion and lack of response, in order to receive a...

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.
