Hotel Commonwealth is such a lovely hotel located in such a convenient part. The staff, and especially Evan at the front desk, were so welcoming and helpful, it was like coming home every time I came back to the hotel. And what a comfortable bed!! I wish I could have stayed longer!

This is a lovely budget hotel in an excellent location - it is only a few minutes walk from Victoria Train Station. Our room was on the top floor, which was a bit of a trek since there isn't a lift, but the room itself was cosy and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, and I would certainly stay here... More

We stayed at this hotel in February, due to my partner attending an interview nearby. We were quite constrained with both the budget and the location. We had a budget of £120 for 2 nights (as this was all the company was willing to reimburse) - in London! The location was a must as the interview was on the 2nd... More

I do feel guilty about being critical about this hotel as the staff have tried their best. They were kind and attentive. It is a budget hotel so you get what you pay for. Sheets and towels freshly laundered. Good supply of tea and coffee. Breakfast starts too late at 7:30 most of the day is done. If you want... More

Thank you for your response. Over the years we have come to the conclusion that for the vast majority of our guests in the hotel of our size, our breakfast time of 7.30 to 10.30 am is ideally suited to them and hence we have kept that time. We have provided tea and coffee facilities in the room for those... More

We thank you for taking the time to write the response. Our internet supplier's server was unfortunately down on that day and we did mention that to all our guests. We also offered them two alternative sources where they could get free internet. We can not control when the servers will break down but at least, as part of our... More

It was small but the whole street was converted row houses. We had two comfortable twin beds in our room and managed. The bathroom was very small but it made us laugh. We had breakfast in the basement and it got us on our way. We were very close to Victoria Station which made it great for us coming in... More

I stayed at the Dover Hotel the week before Christmas and paid £45 for a single room. Yes, the rooms are small, but this is standard for London and would be expected in a hotel double this price. The bed was very comfortable, the guys at reception were very helpful and friendly, the wifi signal was strong and consistent, the... More

I stopped over here on the 26th of November, only paid £65 for the room so it was very cheap for London. I was in the basement level, the room was clean and tidy, but did smell a bit stale. There was a window, not sure why this was never opened. The toilet is so small you can touch all... More
