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.
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.
For something a little more strenuous, take a complimentary day pass to Fitness First - this includes free use of the club's facilities including their Cardio Theatre, Gym Floor & Sauna.
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.
Have you ever tried playing tennis on your own? Well, at The Rubens at the Palace you never need to!
In fact, you will find each of our managers has picked their favourite sports and are ready to offer themselves as playing partners. So, if you are coming to stay with us and would like to make use of this unique service, click on the appropriate manager’s email address and let them know.
Are you looking to see London’s beautiful Royal parks with a group of like-minded runners?
This Spring, The Rubens at the Palace has formed a new weekly Running Club. Join the ‘Victoria Royal Runners’ under the famous Living Wall each Wednesday evening at 6pm, and takes an alternating 5km route around the picturesque local Royal Parks, St James Park, Green Park, and Hyde Park with its beautiful Serpentine Lake.
The Club is completely free of charge- all you will need to bring with you is enthusiasm and energy! Afterwards, all runners are welcome to join and cool down on the Terrace at Bbar Restaurant for a cocktail or two in the sunshine.
