This relatively small hotel, 5 floors totaling 34 rooms overall, is perfectly situated in the heart of London's Westminster burrough. It sits on Tothill Street atop Fuller's Pie & Ale House pub.

For a 3? establishment the Sanctuary House exceeded our expectations by far. The reception staff were always polite and attentive. The room was almost spotless. There were plenty of bathroom accessories such as the moisturiser and soap and shower gel and conditioner and a sewing kit and a manicure set. Bathrobes and slippers and a turn down service. Coffee, hot...

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.
