St Ermin's is a lovely hotel

My daughter and I stayed at St Ermin's for five days and it was great! The hotel itself is gorgeous and the room was very nice. One of the best things about the hotel is its location. Steps from the underground and a couple of blocks from Westminster Abbey. You couldn't ask for better!

Quiet, small rooms

The hotel is exactly as expected for the price. Pros: Clean, very nice hotel staff, quiet, in a safe part of town. Beds were comfortable. Concierge was helpful. Cons: Hopefully you like the color pea-green. The walls are pea-green, the bathrooms dark brown. If you don't mind pea-green, or you are not sensitive to your surroundings, then this will be fine. We didn't try the food, the latte I ordered at the bar was not as good as what you can buy at a coffee cafe.

Beautiful hotel with problems !

When you arrive to the beautiful foyer you are assaulted with a popouri scent that smells like expensive perfume! It's chockingly strong ! When you get in your room, you discover why...there is a very unpleasant odor that permeates the hotel, like bad water or mold. It caused my allergies to flare up. The bathrooms lack any ledges to put your toiletries on while getting ready and you cannot plug the blow dryer into the bathroom sockets leaving you to do makeup and hair in the dimly lit room. The bath/shower is not for tall people and the narrow width causes a slipping danger as you struggle to make room under the flow . The hotel is beautiful just not user friendly!

Lovely neighborhood feel

Quiet, quaint hotel. Great location. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Hotel bar was great. Beautiful garden in the courtyard. We will stay here again if ever in London.

Nice hotel for sightseeing close to Big Ben

Lovely historic hotel close to Westminister and Parliament that is good for sightseeing. Has a good breakfast and nice bar but the neighborhood lacks any type of nightlife, good restaurants or shopping. It is surrounded by government buildings that empty out at 5 pm. It is right on the St James underground stop so that is convenient for exploring the rest of London. The staff was wonderful and our rooms were nice. It is an older hotel that has character but the trade off is slow/small lifts and our rooms smelled a little musty.

Amazing hotel

The hotel is beautiful and perfectly situated near everything. The tube is right outside, and the doorman is adorable in his hat willing to help you with whatever you need. The rooms are nice, and the shower is huge. We enjoyed our stay.
