We were very impressed with this Taj hotel especially the courtyard which was a pleasant surprise in the centre of London. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast excellent. Staff were very helpful especially on check in. The hotel is located only one street from Buckingham Palace and close to parliamentary buildings etc. we will definitely stay here again.

I am a wheelchair user and both the staff and room were excellent. The level access shower was alittle tight although not a problem for me. I arranged an impromptu supper for a dozen friends in Bistro 51; the service, food and drink were all excellent and good value. I look forward to staying with you again.

This Hotel is lovely - very big and sometimes the corridors to get to your room are long. But, when in the rooms they are spotless and very comfortable. Fabulous area to stay in (would love to live in this area!!), practically two blocks from Buckingham Palace, 15 minute walk to Trafalgar Square, perfect.

I would have rated this hotel with 5 stars were it not for the constant noise and rumbling of the trains below or near the property. We were on the 3rd floor and it is very noticeable and a bit of an irritant. Back to the actual hotel, the room was very nice and the staff was courteous and helpful....

Dear Rambabu S, Thank you for the feedback on the valet parking.

When the car was returned from our side all was working, but I will look into this further....

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.
