The 5-star Rubens at the Palace boasts a unique location -- one of its nearest neighbours is Buckingham Palace -- and it offers views over the Royal Mews.
Built in the 1800s to accommodate debutantes attending royal parties, today it is walking distance to the Royal Parks, Victoria Station and Westminster -- and has garnered quite the reputation for its delightful staff and living wall, home to 10,000 plants.
Commonly for a historical property, some of the rooms are on the smaller side, but all are quiet and charming. The décor is traditional -- cozy beds, elegant drapes, antiques and original art (including portraits of Henry VIII).
Families are well cared for, with interconnecting rooms, pull-out sofa beds in the more spacious Executive King Rooms, treats at turndown and even a 'Director of Fun'. Pets are also welcome (charges apply).
With two restaurants, a separate lounge, two bars, including the intimate Leopard Champagne Bar, and 24-hour room service, The Rubens gives diners plenty of choice for every occasion – from cocktails, to light snacks, to a Royal Afternoon Tea and fine dining.
The English Grill restaurant offers a contemporary brasserie menu while The Palace Lounge is perfect for drinks, snacks, or afternoon tea overlooking the Royal Mews.
