About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- A discreet bolthole beside Buckingham Palace
- Made Condé Nast Traveller's Gold List in 2014
- Free treats include welcome Champagne, unlimited Häagen Dazs ice cream, midnight snacks, afternoon tea & Wi-Fi
- "The very antidote to chain hotels" -- Frommer's
Located next to Buckingham Palace, you're perfectly placed to catch the Changing of the Guard, and the views over the Royal Mews are exceptional. Big Ben and the West End theaters are an easy 30-minute stroll, and the shops on Oxford Street, Bond Street and King’s Road can be reached in just two stops on the Tube (Victoria is the closest station).
Hidden on the 5th-floor of a Georgian townhouse, a lift whisks guests up from the entrance to the lobby, where a choice Champagne awaits. Reminiscent of a Gentleman's Club, the lounge is open solely to guests and is full of book-lined walls and leather Chesterfield armchairs. Here, buffet breakfast is served (until 1pm on Sunday), as are complimentary canapés, unlimited unlimited Häagen Dazs ice cream, and afternoon scones. There’s even a well-stocked pantry for free midnight snacks.
For a formal dinner, pop next door to the award-winning restaurant at sister property, The Rubens at the Palace. There is no gym on site, but free day passes are provided for LA Fitness (two minutes' walk away), where there is a pool, gym and spa.
Rooms have the same comfy air as the rest of the hotel, with polished mahogany furniture, plush feather duvets, fresh flowers and TVs in the bathrooms. Upgrade to a suite for more space, a period fireplace and high-tech trimmings. The best of the bunch is the split-level Conservatory Suite, with its incredible glass roof.
