The Rubens at the Palace in London, England

The Rubens at the Palace is the closest you'll get to a sleepover with the Queen without a state visit invitation. The hotel is directly across from the royal residence on property that enjoys a colorful past – the Duke of Buckingham lived here in the 1600s, followed by an apothecary and a Court dressmaker. The Rubens, which was built in 1912, housed the Polish army during WWII and gave respite to exiled Charles de Gaulle. The hotel's decadent – and often equally colorful – rooms and suites are a comfortable home base in the epicenter of London.

Greet the day with a morning stroll across the gardens. Stop by the Queen's Gallery, which displays many of the best works from the Royal Family's personal collection. Roam Westminster, but be back in time for high tea – from the lounge you’ll see the Queen's stables and maybe even catch a glimpse of passing pageantry. As evening progresses, settle into an armchair by a crackling fire and savor a plate of grilled Dover sole with chive and butter sauce.

The hotel was newly redecorated, being an interior designer myself was extremely appreciative of the work that had been done. Every single person on the staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Definitely not the place to be missed on your tour of London.

We went to the Rubens for a Gin tasting experience and had an amazing time. The staff were exceptional and the hotel's gin expert Fabio was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were made very welcome and would recommend this experience to anyone. The bar had a great atmosphere with nice live music and decor, it's definitely worth a visit just for a few drinks. We will definitely be back.

We enjoyed four nights at this lovely hotel. It was a wonderful stay. The hotel is clean, charming and well decorated. The staff was perfectly trained, very welcoming and helpful. From the doormen, to concierge, reception and maid service the attention to detail was appreciated. The room was very nice, comfortable and we enjoyed our time. The cost is a little pricey. We felt secure since our room was located within the Royal Suites and required an extra card swipe to enter. The hotels location is absolutely perfect since it is directly across the street from Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews. Many good shops within steps from the front door. Also, the hotel is a short walk across the street to the Sir Simon Milton Square which houses many upscale restaurants and stores. It is a very short walk to a Waitrose market with deli and a Prep A Manger restaurant. We only dined once in the hotel's English Grill, finding the service was very good and the food was just okay. We did not try out the other on site restaurants. A short walk to St. James Park, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abby. Excellent stay! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This was my third stay at the Rubens Hotel and I am looking forward coming back. As always, a very warm welcome and the usual welcome voucher for a free drink in the hotel bar. I asked for a room to the back of the building as this is the most silent location. Got a room on third floor, 327. Not the biggest room ever but clever layout, comfy bed and new bathroom with excellent water pressure. Two bottles of water on the room. Had an excellent sleep and a wonderful english breakfast. At the next night I enjoyed my free drink in the cosy bar. Again, there was an excellent singer in the bar giving the place a wonderful atmosphere. If you do like typical British hotels with a cosy atmosphere and a perfectly friendly staff, this is the best place to stay. Location is perfect for business travellers and toursits due to the location close to Victoria station. Buckingham Palace is right across the street and the area around is perfect for a morning walk. I can highly recommend the Rubens Hotel, comfort, atmosphere and staff are really perfect and make me feel like coming home

The Rubens at the Palace is a true find-within feet of the Palace, Westminster Cathedral, and other great sites, yet a cozy and quiet retreat when worn out from your walkabouts. The staff are cordial and very helpful; at our recent stay the night manager helped with a couple of tasks my wife needed done prior to a speaking engagement the next morning, and we could not have been happier with his attentive and generous efforts. The room service meal was outstanding. Beds very comfortable, and the bathrooms small but stylish and absolutely adequate. Would return here definitely when we come back to London.
