Lovely staff, breakfast was plentiful and lots of choice , and the location is so central. We also paid for the gin tasting experience which was brilliant!
The room was very disappointing , it was the royal room and it was very plain! No biscuits with the coffee and tea facilities in the room. For a 5 star hotel you expect those little touches!

From the minute I arrived and was greeted by a liveried doorman I was made to feel welcome and special. The Receptionist was warm and wanted to help in any way she could. My room was comfortable with a big bed and excellent quality bed linen and large bath towels. The fantastic value room rate included a complimentary drink in the bar and an excellent hot breakfast which was cooked fresh rather than left to congeal on the buffet. Again the breakfast room staff were incredibly attentive despite a very busy service which gave a real buzz to the overall ambiance.
No criticism. This really was an excellent experience.

The food was fantastic, the interior was beautiful and location was also great. It was my husbands birthday and the staff were so lovely.
It was difficult to turn the lights on and off in the bedroom and most switches did not work.

The most stunning hotel we’ve stayed in since visiting London. The staff went above and beyond to cater for our every need and even made me sandwiches for my early flight because I was missing breakfast. What a wonderful hotel with the most amazing food and the staff really are superb.

I have stayed at the Rubens many times, both on business and leisure and have always found the staff friendly, professional and attentive. The hotel is in an excellent location and provides comfortable rooms.

The English grill restaurant, the food and staff were excellent.
The scaffolding all around the property which was not disclosed on the website. I booked the New York bar as it advertised live singer only to be told she was on holiday. Both of these things detracted from the overall experience.

The best thing about The Rubens is the staff. They are all so friendly and helpful and professional. The Rubens is a little pricey, but good value, I think for London. We used their valet parking which was perfect and also good value at £47. Would stay there again. Really tasty breakfast, lots of bars in the hotel, quiet room despite central location and you really can walk everywhere.

The location was superb and the hotel was full character. I booked three rooms and all were individual and as we had hoped. We attended an investiture at Buckingham Palace and found the hotel very convenient .
Of the 3 rooms , 2 were fine however the room allocated to my wife and I had a problem with the heating system. It growled loudly all night keeping us awake. Determined to not have a repeat performance I reported the issue to staff the next morning. We were reassured that the problem would be fixed. Unfortunately this was not the case and we endured another night with very little sleep. I did bring it to the attention of the staff again and they asked if I would like to see the manager to discuss things further. I declined as I was shattered, and had a long journey ahead of me. I requested that they simply rectify the issue so the next guest would not suffer a similar fate.
