Westminster Plaza Hotel, design in the heart of London

This week I had the opportunity to spend a night in the British capital to attend an event, and to my joy, the accommodation chosen by the organization was none other than the Westminster Plaza hotel, pure design in the heart of London.

The location, as you may have deduced by name, is enviable. It is right in front of the Westminster Palace, which is observed from the best suites across the Thames. If one can afford it, the perfect place from which to start a visit to the city.

The design of the hotel and the rooms does not correspond, however, with its historical location, not because it is not up to par, but because it's modern style, but without losing the famous British elegance.

The rooms are spacious, or at least mine was. Access to a reading area with two sofas and a television, then we find the bathroom, wrapped in a decorated black glass enclosure, and in the background, next to the window, is the bedroom. With another television, that is not said.

How could it be otherwise in an English hotel, the floor was carpeted, in this case for a very nice garnet carpet. In the hallway area that separates the relaxation area and the bedroom, and from where you access the bathroom, we find a curious detail: there is written on the carpet a small bedtime story.

The bathroom contrasts with the cozy darkness that predominates in the room. When we open the door we find a spacious and bright room, decorated in light and warm colors; White and wood mainly.

The pieces are from simple and very nice lines. As a curiosity, in addition to the bathtub, there is a shower, a detail that is appreciated and that more and more hotels include.

In the bedroom area we enjoy the natural light that enters through the big window, sifted by a thin curtain. To my misfortune, the views were to the inner courtyard, spacious and bright, but bland. Maybe that's why I looked more at the decoration of the closet, at whose door we found the affable face of a woman.

Definitely, Hotel Westminster Plaza a more than pleasant place to spend the night, something that cannot always be said of many hotels with the same stars. It shows that every detail is taken care of to the millimeter, and even has a small kitchen with a sink, in which we can prepare a tea, a very common hospitality in British hotels.

For travelers from the continent, free Wi-Fi is also appreciated, something that Spanish hotels should learn, as well as offering plugs adapted to ours.

The Dog House Sofa, a sofa for those who cannot separate from their dog

I love pets but what I can't stand is animal hair for upholstery. The maternal reprimands still ring in my ears when I saw that the dogs entered directly from the garden and jumped on the sofas to watch children's programming with us. The Korean designer Seungji Mun had something similar to happen, so he has designed this fun and functional sofa with three functions, sofa, coffee table and dog house.
