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.

I recently took my parents and 2 boys here for afternoon tea. I chose this hotel, due its wonderful reputation and the great location. The hotel is beautifully furnished, I had a peep into the other bar areas, and they look classy and comfortable. The Afternoon Tea is served in a great room with windows that over look Buckingham Palace Mews, and if you are lucky you may see the Queen's Guards. The food itself was nice, and plentiful. The scones were delightful. They have a good list of teas, they also serve a smaller and more 'child pleasing' afternoon tea for children. One of the other wonderful things, that I didn't know at the time of booking, is there was a fabulous singer and pianist in the Afternoon Tea room, which was really lovely - I'm not sure if this is only on certain days or times, and if we were just lucky, but it was a great surprise. The staff were fantastic, every member that we met, were polite, helpful, chatty and professional. I do have a discrepancy with the bill, which I only just noticed, so have emailed the hotel. Im sure there will be no problems correcting it though, not from such a high class establishment. Would definitely go back and will most definitely choose this hotel on my next stay in London too. Would love to experience the hotel as an overnight guest.

What a wonderfull place. The hotel is beautifully furnished and all the staff we came in contact with were excellent. The afternoon tea was very well presented and the staff could not be any more attentive. Choice of teas was very good recommend the rubens blend and apple and elderflower. The trays of sandwiches scones and cakes were delicous. We will certainly be back for more.

The staff are welcoming, helpful, and knowledgable! This is a lovely hotel with a great location, across from Buckingham Palace's Mews. The doormen are quick with a hand to help with luggage, and friendly assistance. The concierges, quite simply, make the impossible possible. An entirely wonderful experience!

Impeccable staff and levels of service. Plush decoration especially in public areas. Bedroom very comfortable especially bed. Wonderful location. Extremely good breakfast. Be warned the lift is tiny, so you might prefer the stairs.

recently returned to Rubens at the Palace. Warm and friendly welcome back from the staff. Service excellent at reception and in the restaurant. Slightly disappointed that breakfast was no longer self service but food was beautiful. Will hopefully be back for a couple of nights next summer. Location is perfect. My favourite Hotel in Britain.
