Very nice hotel. Good service, comfortable beds and a nice bar. A TAJ hotel therefore an Indian flair which I find charming. The central London location is great. Walking to many popular tourist areas is easy. We purchased the breakfast included package and this never disappointed us. Great way to start the day.

Not quite the grand Taj hotels of India but a perfectly respectable 4 star London hotel with a good location. There was sometimes a lack of staff available at reception and the rooms were a little tired but overall experience was good.

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.
