Nice hotel in an interesting part of town.We could use the hotel as a home base for walks to Hyde Park, Soho Square and Leicester Square. We could get meals at the hotel if we wished, but there were also places to eat and get coffee close by/

Wonderful Staff in an Aging HotelYou can't beat the location if your prime destination is the plethora of museums and the staff are really helpful, attentive, and just plain great. The hotel is aging a bit and on the path of becoming shabby, but who is in London to stay in their hotel?

Nice hotel overallMy son and I enjoyed our time here. The Room was clean, neat and enough space for both of us since we were out all the time. I wish the Wi-Fi was working better. We were on the 5th floor so not sure if this has anything to do with it but I would assume they should cover all the rooms. We will come ...

Stay at the Grand RoyaleThe staff was extremely helpful with everything, including calling cabs and making suggestions about transportation. The room was clean and comfortable; my only complaint regarding the room was that it was extremely small, even for a small adult such as myself.

Historic Hotel Guide in London

It seems you can’t toss a stone in London without hitting a historic building or plaza. From prehistory straight on down to the modern era, a trip to Old Smoke is a journey into the region’s remarkable past.

  • Choose from our breadth of room and suite options

While the Romans have the honour of the first recorded settlement in the area, it’s now believed that London was previously occupied by Bronze Age peoples.

You can learn about those early inhabitants—and many more who came after them—at the Museum of London. Coincidentally, this building is located on London Wall, named for the actual wall that surrounded the city during the Roman era. For a slightly different type of history, make your way to the Tower of London, a fortress on the north bank of the River Thames. It’s perhaps best known for its use as a prison during the 16th and 17th centuries, though a tour of the castle also shows off the Crown Jewels and the peaceful Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula.

To round out a day (or more) in the city, stop by St. Dunstan-in-the-East, between the Tower of London and London Bridge. The church, which was first constructed in 1100, was rebuilt in the early 1800s and then severely damaged during the Blitzkrieg. Rather than rebuild again, the city turned it into a public garden. Grass, trees, and plants now grow around the ruins, providing a peaceful location where nature and faith intertwine.
