Gym nearby, beauty treatments in your room
Central London is full of opportunities for keeping fit and looking good. We can direct you to the best of them, or bring many of those great treatments and therapies right to your room.
The H2 Victoria gym facility is available Monday to Saturday (closed on Sundays). Guests can enjoy full access to the gym and classes, subject to booking and availability. Classes can be booked up to one week in advance via reception (over 18's only). If you're just looking for fresh air, there are miles of walks and jogging trails in the nearby parks. St James's Park is the prettiest park with the finest views. Ask our concierge team for maps of the best trails and the most interesting walks.
Of course you don't have to leave The Rubens to unwind. We can call on qualified masseurs and beauty therapists at any time of the day or night. Or we can provide you with a complimentary yoga mat and accompanying video
At The Rubens, we have set up a sports buddies program which means you're never left without a tennis partner, golf companion or cycling buddy. All sports buddies are employees at the hotel.
Victoria Royal Runners
This Summer 2018, neighbouring Hotels, The Rubens at the Palace, and Hotel 41, have joined together to form the a new Running Club in Victoria, London.
Running throughout the Summer months, the ‘Victoria Royal Runners’ runners meet under the famous ‘Living Wall’, each Wednesday evening, at 6pm. The group is open to all ages and abilities, and takes an alternating 5K route around the picturesque local Royal Parks; St James Park, Green Park, and Hyde Park with its beautiful Serpentine Lake.
Led by keen and motivated runners and Managers at Red Carnation Hotels, Andrew Muir and Joanna Barnes, the team welcomes anyone working in the local area, or simply visitors to the City alike, to join in their weekly drop-in Club. There are no membership requirements, and the Club is completely free of charge- all you will need to bring with you is enthusiasm and energy! There is also a safe place to store any bags or water, at the Bbar Restaurant, just underneath the Living Wall. Afterwards, all runners are also welcome to join and cool down on the Terrace at Bbar Restaurant for a cocktail or two in the sunshine.
You can keep up to date with the weekly runs and any announcements on the Victoria Royal Runners twitter page. If you do wish to discuss any details or ask any questions, please contact either Andrew or Joanna who will be available to assist.
