Lime Tree Hotel was such a charming place to make our home base while in London! The staff were excellent, breakfast was good, rooms were clean and comfy. Some people may find them a little on the small side, but we were impressed with the size considering the age of the building! The only real complaint we had was that... More

Overall a good stay in a great location with a great staff. But be forewarned: the "twin" rooms are very small. Actually too small to be comfortable. We were relegated to the very top floor which felt like we were in the attic. In fact, you almost hit your head in the hallway on the ladder which is affixed to... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Lime Tree Hotel. We arrived before check in time and our room was ready so we were able to access it. The staff was welcoming and generally helpful. The location is literally around the corner from Victoria Coach station. We took the bus to and from Heathrow Airport at a cost of 12 pounds.... More

First of all...don't believe the negative reviews here. The Lime Tree Hotel really beats all other locations in this price range. Everything the announce on their website is true and you will meet the friendliest staff ever. I went there with my sister and mum and we booked one single and one double room. Upon arrival we were very friendly... More

I can't say enough good to say about this Hotel / B&B. The staff were all very friendly, the owner Matt would drop everything he was doing to help you on directions or plans for a day trip. The neighborhood was perfect and quiet with plenty of fantastic restaurants within a stone's throw. The Thomas Cubitt Public House was fantastic... More

I chose this hotel for its proximity to Victoria Station and the hotel's website. The website made this hotel look really wonderful and the pricing of the rooms matched the 'look' from the website. I was on my own for two weeks in England and this hotel looked perfect, so I didn't mind spending a few extra dollars for the... More

This hotel feels just like staying with family. Friendly, welcoming staff. Rare in London, believe me. My room was small but had everything that I could want. Even though it faced out to the front of the hotel it was quiet. The bed was comfortable, the pillows soft, and the curtains of such good quality that the room was lovely... More

We were a party of 4 (2 mothers and teenage daughters) and all stayed in room 13 on the first floor which was a comfortable size and a very pleasant room. Very peaceful and a very convenient location. Good breakfast.

My wife and I stayed at the Lime Tree for 2 days recently as part of our honeymoon before flying to Egypt and we couldn't fault it. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and made our way to our room on the top floor which was quite a hike with our suitcases. The room was a pretty good size... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
