The majestic 4-Star Rubens at the Palace is the closest hotel to the Royal residence of Buckingham Palace and offers a taste of luxury reminiscent of a bygone age in the heart of London. With many attractions such as Westminster Abbey within walking distance, as well as easy access to Victoria Station, you will have the whole of the capital within easy reach.
As a former residence of the Duke of Buckingham, the building has been running as a hotel since 1912 and has the art of hospitality down to a tee. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at the Rubens, and during your stay you will be treated to a wealth of 'special touches', from a choice of pillows to 24 hour room service. The hotel is also home to two restaurants, a separate lounge area and two bars, including the leopard Champagne bar. Enjoy afternoon tea in the Palace Lounge with unbeatable views over the Royal Mews, or perhaps relax with a cocktail or ten year single malt in the Cavalry Bar whilst the resident pianist adds to the welcoming ambience. Rooms at the Rubens come with many modern conveniences including free Wi-Fi, in room entertainment with movies and music on demand, deluxe bath amenities such as robes and slippers, fingertip climate control, a hairdryer, iron and ironing board, complimentary water, tea & coffee making facilities and a safe.
