Children's check-in experience at The Rubens

Family rooms


Children under 12 can stay for free when sharing a triple room with their parents. Our accommodations include various interconnecting options; Executive King and Junior Suites are designed for two adults and one child, while our Family Suites and Master Suites can host two adults and up to two children under 12 on rollaway beds. Interconnecting rooms are subject to availability and cannot be booked online.

Family wings

We understand that families like to stay together, but not necessarily in the same room. We offer a number of 'family wings' which consist of rooms interconnecting via one private central door. We have 10 family wing combinations for between four and 11 guests. Family wings are subject to availability and cannot be booked online. 


Our guest services team can assist with making babysitting arrangements with our trusted partners, Rockabye Babysitters. This boutique London nanny service offers reasonable prices for their services, which include daytime and evening bookings and 24-hour assistance. Enjoy the best of both worlds – time together as a family along with time alone knowing your children are safe and happy.

Pastry chef experience

Children are able to dress up in full chef uniform and visits our kitchen to see our chef at work. They will meet our pastry chef and learn how to decorate their own biscuits and cupcakes, and receive a 'Master Chef in the Art of Pastry' certificate on completion, a personalised badge and a polaroid picture of the experience.
