The Rubens At The Palace
Consistently voted as one of London’s top hotels, The Rubens at the Palace recalls the magnificence and splendor of a bygone age whilst seamlessly blending the latest in modern comforts and technology. The impeccable service and old-world courtesy come from an era when respect and eagerness to please were paramount. When The Rubens was built in 1911, it was popular with debutantes, a class of aristocratic, party-loving young ladies. After almost a century of fine living, the building has lost none of its aristocratic grandeur. The chandeliers gleam as brightly; the decor is as rich; and the service is impeccable.

Neighboring Buckingham Palace and overlooking the Royal Mews, The Rubens is within easy walking distance of the Royal Parks, Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the West End. This is a London rendezvous in the grandest of styles. The Rubens has superb facilities throughout – an impressive lounge, an elegant bar, and stylish restaurants. The Old Master’s Restaurant offers succulent roasts, while the Library Restaurant serves award winning English cuisine. Enjoy a delicious traditional Afternoon Tea overlooking the Royal Mews in the Palace Lounge, or relax in the popular Cavalry Bar or the safari-chic Leopard Champagne and Cocktail Bar.

The concierge team know every London sight and every West-End show, as well as the hidden gems that visitors often miss. Perfect for romantic getaways and ideal for families, they even have a pet concierge who will make sure your pets enjoy their stay as much as you do.
