The Rubens At The Palace, London
Always enjoyable. The staff is amazing from the door man to the reception and concierge. The afternoon tea is the best and they even made it gluten free for us!

Five-star experience!
Truly a five star experience! The location was great. The service was great and it was really large (for Europe) and comfy. I will definitely stay with them again and I’m extremely picky when it comes to hotels and hospitality.

Fantastic location!
The location was phenomenal. It is just a short minutes walk to all attractions in the Westminster area and less than 2 minutes walk to Victoria station. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We arrived at 11am after a long international flight and check in was scheduled until 3pm but they let us check right into our room for no extra fee or wait time. The breakfast was delicious and our first day’s breakfast was complimentary!! Will definitely stay here again.

Wish our stay was longer
This place was awesome!!! The bed was comfortable, and the room was very old London feeling which was great! We were King George III room, and it had mirrors all over the room. The only thing was the bathroom wasn't as clean as I was expecting. It looked like there was line of dripped coffee on the front of the sink area, and I could see pee marks on the floor next to the toilet. Other than that, this place was amazing!! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a view of the Royal Mews which was really cool!!

Ok service,comfortable small rooms
The check in hostess was unpleasant and the experience was rushed. Hotel was comfortable even though room was a little small. The hotel did offer us a free drink at the bar but we were too jet lagged to take them up on the offer and even though we did not show up on first day for free drinks there was no follow up for the rest of 3 days of our stay. The door man was the most helpful of the staff and always good directions.
