London is such a busy city with the hustle and bustle of the central streets, crowds roaring out of tube stations and all of the sights and sounds to be contempt with. If you are planning on visiting London for a holiday, there are plenty of reasons for choosing a central London hotel.
The luxurious St Ermin’s Hotel located in Westminster, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of busy Central London but in the heart of Westminster’s business and conference district, overall occupies a great place for tourists and business travellers.
St Ermin’s is located close to the banks of the River Thames and tourists can be assured that they will find major London attractions along this route including The London Eye – allowing riders to see London and the surrounding area from 443 feet up in the air, Houses of Parliament – home of the British Government and Buckingham Palace – the second home to the Queen and Royal Family. Other major attractions nearby include Tower Bridge, Tower of London – which is heavily guarded and contains the Crown Jewels and St Paul’s Cathedral.
If you’re looking to discover the rest of London, St James’s Park tube station is a minute walk from the hotel which allows you to travel into the busy streets of Regent Street, Bond Street and Oxford Street. Oxford Street has the best of today’s high street all in one stretch and nearby Regent Street is home to the UK’s flagship Apple Store and most importantly the famous toy store, Hamleys. If you’re looking for a top class department store known for some high end retail therapy, Harrods is located on Knightsbridge.
However, if you’re looking to discover the rest of the UK or for a quick connection to two of many London’s airports, Victoria railway station is within 5 minute walk where you can catch the Gatwick Express to London Gatwick. London Paddington station can be accessed through a quick ride on the tube where the Heathrow Express departs from. Sleeper trains also run from this station on a late evening to locations such as Plymouth and Penzance.
Once you return to the hotel, you have access to Caxton Bar and Grill – the hotel’s restaurant and bar serving a delicious European menu using seasonal and local British ingredients within a modern, stylish environment with attentive and friendly staff.
Overall, even though St Ermin’s Hotel is marketed strictly at business travellers, the hotel doesn’t carry a corporate feel and welcomes families, couples of solo guests. Reviews on TravelAdvisor rate this hotel as a perfect honeymoon spot for domestic and international travellers and is rated #27 out of a possible 1,085 hotels in London.
