Yes location is the only attraction in staying in this hotel. I was given a room on the third floor and had to lug my luggages up there. Fortunately they allowed me to leave the big luggage in the reception area. At least the receptionist was helpful. Room and shower area were small and hardly walking space. Nevertheless it's 10...

I'm rating the Dover Hotel as excellent because I think it is a terrific value for the money. It is located about a 10 minute walk from Victoria Station which is a major hub with an underground stop, a national rail stop, and a major bus terminal located it. The room was small but comfortable, nice shower, good beds and... More

We spent two nights here. Room was small but clean with a fan, tv, coffee and tea, and private bathroom. The hotel offers breakfast- basic but good- except for the coffee which came out of one of these terrible instant mixing machines... Great location right next to Victoria station. Some street noise at night, but we thought it was good... More

I spent one night at the Dover hotel for a brief visit in London. Location is excellent, walking distance to most of the main sights, close to public transport. As for the hotel itself, the room was small but adequate for 1 night. The bed linen was clean, room tidy. Tea/coffee facilitates available, fan and TV. Bed was comfortable and... More

I chose the Dover Hotel as I know the Victoria area and this was the most competitive pricewise. The hotel was a typical Victoria hotel, nothing outstanding – nothing too bad either. I think it was overpriced for what you get but this is London, choice is limited. The room was in the attic, up a very narrow stair, and... More

My 17 year old daughter and myself stayed for 3 nights at the Dover Hotel - we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who was helpful throughout our stay. Our room was exactly as described and expected - the bathroom small but functioned perfectly. Breakfast was served downstairs - not many tables but again, not a problem for us.... More

I didn't expect much although the price wasn't the cheapest it was brilliantly located. The room was clean and had all the usual basics. The bed wasn't the best quality and the shared bathrooms weren't desirable. But again you're not paying for luxury here. Would expect in future to pay more like £40 for the single with shared bathroom. The... More

The Dover Hotel was in a great location. Walking distance to Buckingham Palace, Harrods, Hyde Park, the London Eye and Big Ben. The room itself was very cozy...actually super small. We are a family of 4 so there were two single beds and a double. The bathroom was extremely tiny. There was a very small shower with only a curtain,... More

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
