Thank you again to John and his staff Third time stay on business at Melbourne House where I sincerely appreciate the effort management goes to each time for upgrades and the understanding for lower floor accommodation to avoid the stairs where ever possible. Thanks in advance for next time! If it is your first time to London these are typical... More

I stayed 4 nights at the Melbourne House. The rooms and amenities are basic but it is clean and the location is very convenient. Good choice for leisure travel if you will be spending most of your time seeing the sights. Close to the Pimlico tube station.

All too typical of some of these smaller independent hotels, Melbourne House feels like stepping back into the 80s. The dated (but not antique or even shabby chic) furniture, the cheap fire doors and patterned bedspreads all contribute. With a teeny, tiny television, don't expect to be able to spend the evening lying on the bed watching tv after a... More

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
