I stayed here for 6 nights in June 2014. For the price the location could not be beat. It's a 5 minute walk to Victoria Station for the Underground, National Rail and coach services. You do hear the trains at night, but that didn't stop me from sleeping after a long day of sightseeing. It is a budget hotel so... More

I booked a single night at this property for a stay at the end of January. As I arrived by coach the hotels location is perfect, being only 5mins away from Victoria Coach Station. The property is in close proximity to Victoria Railway Station and the Underground network. You can't really get a better location in London for the price!... More

We originally booked a twin room in Ivy house hotel ( several of this hotels in the same street), but at arrival we asked for a double room, so they gave us one in Alexander House. Reading many of the reviews about London budget hotels, you are aware you are going to get a tiny room. I couldn't imagine such... More

I stay in this hotel when in London on business. It is is central. It is clean and warm in the winter. Thought the price reflects what you get in London. It is part of a chain of hotels in the same Road behind Victoria Station but at the end of the Rd is a great pub with good pub... More

ANNEXE HOTEL, ALEXANDER HOTEL AND HOLLY HOUSE ARE the same hotel, same owners. Stay away. The rooms are very very small, the beds are small, the toilets are microspic, rooms are very noisy besides Victoria Station. The trains seems to pass through the rooms...it is very noisy ! The only good thing maybe is the location. I was 3 days... More

This place is THE reality check for budget travelers in London. The Dollar to Pound exchange rate is abysmal, so if you are too proud to bunk down in a hostel, be prepared to budget more or you will end up in some place just like this. The room was cramped, like a closet with a bed shoved in, with... More

I made a Hotel reservation on November 16 at Alexander House to stay for one night on December 31 due to flight layover from Rome. When I arrived, the attendant told me that my reservation was canceled. I found myself, my 8 year old daughter and my wife out in the streets on a cold and rainy night looking for... More

Cheap accommodation within a stone's throw of Victoria Station. Very friendly helpful staff although not all proficient in English. Street is quiet and rooms just adequate. But it is budget accommodation and you get what you pay for. I have stayed twice in 2004 and would use again.

Booked on-line. I wanted a cheap overnight stopover with full breakfast. As many others have found, the room I booked was not in the building I was shown to (the owner owns 5 or 6 buildings adjoining one another). If they made clear that this was the case and that alternative accomodation i.e. not a specific room in a specific... More

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.
