It was hard finding this place with the GPS, there are 3 locations with the same address on the same street within viewing distance, don't trust your GPS but print it out before you leave! When we arrived, we were told our room was on the 5th floor, but we might take one on the 4th. I inspected the two... More

Hotel located near Pimlico tube station, well connected to London center. Bus 24 stops at the very door. Small room, but enough for 2 people. Very clean. Breakfast could be more imaginative... The room had a great advantage: no carpet at all, unlike most English hotels. This helps cleaning and offers good sensations.

Was looking for a reasonably priced place in zones 1/2 of London and this place fit the bill well. Was only a 5 minute walk from Pimlico Station and only about 10-15 minutes or so from Victoria Station. Which is also right near Buckingham Palace, so not a bad walk and their neighborhood was nice and thus we were fine... More

Right from walking in the front door had a very good and personal welcome. Brought my wife & daughter for their first visit to London and this place is literally walking distance from Buckingham Palace, The Mall, Hyde Park, and Westminster Abby, and minutes from the Victoria tube station. So yeah you could say it's got great location. Price was... More

We stayed at this hotel in May 2014 for 5 nights. It is a budget hotel so don't expect anything special. Our room was a reasonable size. Wifi not in room had to sit in Reception to receive signal! Ok but a little inconvenient. We were in the basement and while the room was slightly larger it was very noisy... More

My wife and I just spent a week at the Melbourne House, and loved the experience! The room was small but comfy and enough space for a home base for our London wanderings. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, from John the owner to breakfast/housekeeping staff member Mihaela (whose wonderful smile made our day every morning). Breakfast was varied and... More

Very good value for money and in a fairly good location. Hotel in excellent condition and very clean. Attention to detail by staff in top notch. Would recommend this hotel for short stays. In true London style rooms are a bit small for extended stays.

Very clean, but VERY SMALL ROOM couldn't swing a CAT. And didn't realise it was continental breakfast, I know it's cheaper and easier but for God sake I'm English and in its capital...... Bacon and eggs please (very very disappointed!!) had to go out for breakfast, sort of defeats the object really.

This was the first hotel I stayed in upon arriving by myself in London for the first time. The staff were friendly and welcoming and I instantly felt at ease. The room itself was tiny but comfortable and clean. Totally fine for someone just looking for a place to sleep and leave their luggage. The location was also great, really... More
