We stayed here for two nights. It is in a very central location with Victoria station about 10 minutes walk away. There is a bus stop just around the corner from the hotel with buses every few minutes daytime and evening to Victoria station and other parts of London. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is good. We... More

This is a decent house-hotel of sorts, but there were various issues with the electricity connections and whatnot. But I guess you get what you paid for. But WATCH OUT when you ask them to order a taxi for you, we had an experience where they ordered a taxi that had no meter and asked for 20 pounds fare for... More

I was delighted with my experience at the Melita Hotel recently. The staff in particular were very helpful and attentive. The rooms were clean, spacious and tidy. The breakfast was very nice too and there was no shortage to chose from. When I realised I lost my car keys in the room and was already on route home the staff... More

This hotel has very helpful and pleasant staff. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. It is in a good location, quite close to Victoria station. It is good value for the price in central London. I would recommend this for a budget break.

I found this hotel to be very average. The rooms are very small for 2 adults sharing. The bathroom was tiny. It's the first bathroom I've ever had the chance to sit on the toilet and brush my teeth at the same time!!! Bathroom wasn't cleaned properly as there was hair on the floor! Couldn't inform reception as it closes... More

1) Melita is very conveniently located between Pimlico and Victoria. Great for everything - from Heathrow you can go directly to Victoria, just change from Picadilly line to District at Hammersmith - simply go out of the train and cross the platform. Bus 24 is 24 hours service and will take you to National gallery, Tate is 10 mins walk,... More

Stayed at the Melita House for one night. The first very nasty surprise was that they charge an extra 5% over the booked price on your reservation unless you pay with a British debit card. If you pay with a debit card from any other country or with any credit card they charge you a full extra 5 %. A... More

This is a little hotel in Pimlico. My room in the basement was claustrophobic. The breakfast here is very poor. They added a surcharge for use of a credit card though the agency said specifically there was none, Staff had poor command of English and entirely spoke Russian between themselves. Reception is not open late.

My family and I stayed here, never again! It was very overpriced and the breakfast was awful. I think £180.00 for one room for one night with possibly the worst hotel breakfast we have had was very steep, the managers response was that breakfast was complimentary so basically I had no right to complain about it. The dining room was... More

We stayed here for my birthday because the surrounding streets were old haunts of the artist, Aubrey Beardsley, someone I am very interested in and so the location was great for exploring his old houses and the church he attended. We arrived on the wrong dates by accident and the staff were only too happy to sort us out with... More
