After reading some negative comments on this hotel, I was expecting the worst. Nevertheless we were very happy with it. We stayed for 5 nights in a double room on the third floor. At first we thought it was very small, but we just had enough space for us two. We organized our things so, that everything had a place.... More

Cheap comfortable accomdation close to Victoria Station. Rooms are what you pay for and bathrooms are suprisngly nice. The breakfast is fast and convient, possibly would be nice to be able to order eggs, bacon or sausages even if an extra charge was included. We would stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights on a family visit. Booked slightly in advance and got a really good price (even for mid-January). This hotel is very well situated for rail and coach from Victoria, and with easy access to central London. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, our twin room was on the third floor - recently renovated and comfortably furnished,... More

It was the cheapest place we found near to Victoria (5 min walk to station) that had decent reviews so... More

Stayed at the hotel for 4 days! Location is great- less than 5mins to Victoria station and about 15 to the main attractions. Rooms are spacious enough, beds are quite big! Clean bathroom, good service! Breakfast is ok, for me it was enough for a morning meal) some local shops are just out of the corner, we got almost everywhere... More

Pros: bed, pillows, location, price. Cons: I read from reviews that they are ongoing renovation so that would be a big help for quite meticulous people but not me. the hotel is ok for me.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
