My friend and I were looking for a place to stay in London for a couple of days so we could see all of the sites. We looked at hotel, B&B’s, hostels, etc and everything is so expensive there. Lucky for us, we found Vandon House, which really offers affordable accommodation right in the heart of London. The rooms were... More

The Vandon House Hotel closed on May 22 (two days after we checked out). It had been sold and we heard from the staff that it would not be reopening as lodging. It was quite convenient to lots of London attractions and we walked nearly everywhere so I would recommend something in this area - though there are few restaurants... More

Stayed at Vandon House for 2 nights with my sister last summer. As London was our last stop in our 3 week trip around Europe, we learned that a double ensuite room will not cost any less than 100 euros. The Vandon was 95 pounds/night, which was fair considering it is right in the Victoria district and walking distance to... More

A ten minute walk from Victoria Station, Apollo Theatre, five minutes from Buckingham Palace.......this was an awesome location. It seemed like it was aimed at college students (which we were), but our room was very family friendly. It was rather spacious and the bathroom was nice. The breakfast was typical but nothing to complain about. They also had one of... More

When I stayed for 3 nights in summer, I'd had a few gripes (see "Nearly." below). When I wrote them gently to the manager, she offered me a complimentary night, which I took in mid-October. * It is in a terrific location - near plenty of public transport, near to Westminster Abbey, up a very quiet street but that street...

I had to stay one night in London and was looking for reasonably priced accommodation - not easy to find in London! When I emailed Vandon House to inquire about availability, they responded very quickly and professionally. After a couple of emails, I had paid for and reserved a single dorm room for 40 pounds. Great! I arrived late on... More

The Westminster location was key to getting out to the sights within a very short time of arriving in central London. Bags were tossed in the room and 15 minutes later we were under Big Ben and gawking at Parliament. The rooms are very basic, as they are indeed dorms. We stayed shortly before the students arrived, so rooms filled... More

I was very pleased to have found Vandon House, as I had to arrange a trip at short notice, and be in the Victoria/Westminster area. It was easy to make the initial arrangements, and my emails were answered quickly, although by a different person every time. I knew it was a Hall of Residence, not a Hotel hotel, and was... More

My son (20) and I just got back from London, where we spend a few nights at the Vandon House. I can only say that our stay there was "OK." I gave it an "average" rating here because I don't think its fair to give it a "poor," but to me, "average" is better than it really is. Its location... More

I've traveled some and I wanted to stay in a hotel that felt indigenous to the country, not a cookie cutter type property, yet one I could afford in my budget and centrally located. On this forum, I was directed to the Vandon. I searched high and low and cancelled out two other reservations because I was not completely comfortable... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
