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.

We stayed a week at Rubens at the Palace. This is an excellent hotel. Our room was large with everything we wanted. The staff was so so helpful with everything we needed. The location is also great, just down the street from Buckingham Palace and close to the Victoria tube station. We highly recommend this hotel and we will be definitely going back.

Thanks for a lovely stay at Rubens. My parents and I had both booked rooms and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The customer service was of an excellent standard, actually the best I have ever experienced. Anthony on the door went above and beyond and is an absolute asset to the hotel. Patrick on reception was also incredibly helpful and welcoming. Thank you again. We will be back!

Excellent hotel with very attentive service. Our room was on the small side but very well equiped with a very comfortable bed for a good night's sleep. Victoria tube station and train station is about a 5 minute walk so very convenient for sightseeing etc.

This is a real gem in the heart of London and the staff makes the visit every penny worth it!!! Staff goes out of their way to help. The hotel is close to the very ctoria station and a lot of restaurants can be found very close by, it is worth it to try the restaurants in the hotel. Walking distance from big ben, london eye and buckingham palace!
