Second visit - first one in 2008. Location is wonderful, 10 minutes to Victoria Station, 10 minutes to the Thames. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your hotel. However, if you want a clean, well run, efficient hotel with more than adequate rooms, with nice bathroom facilities, a wonderful breakfast, and more than reasonable rates, then do... More

We stayed for 5 nights and loved it. The staff was very friendly from checkin until checkout. The free breakfast in the morning was perfect. The location was very central. We found new restaurants everyday by walking within 10 minutes from the hotel like Gastronomica, El Sola Mio, the Warwick. The buses are easy to get on from here. The... More

Spent 3 nights in London at the Melbourne Hotel beginning of July when unfortunately it got really hot. The room overlooked the garden and a ventilator was given which made our stay very comfortable. The hotel was quiet and very clean. Both Beds were confortable although the mattress protectors were not staying in place but the room was made every... More

Friendly and welcoming staff. Clean and today room. Towels etc. tea/coffee, hairdryer included. Luckily had pricey bathroom. Shower sufficiently fast and hot. Happy to stay again. Noisy outside but hey that's London for you. Breakfast included. Easy to find. Close to theatres which was perfect for us.

My family and I (3 of us) stayed at the Melbourne House Hotel as our last night in England on holiday (mid-June). A gentleman name John was working at the time and he was very helpful in many, many ways which I will mention later. All in all we found the hotel to be clean, spacious enough for our needs,...

Booked by my wife as part of a surprise weekend away I was delighted to be staying somewhere so convenient for Victoria and our train to and from Gatwick (10mins walk). The staff were extremely accommodating, allowing us to drop our bags at 10am, somewhat before we were able to check in, and when we got the keys we were... More

This is our third visit to the Melbourne Hotel. It is in a good location a short walk from Victoria Station. The hotel is quite reasonable priced. The rooms are comfortable perfectly adequate for a short stay in London. The rooms as well as the en-suite were spotlessly clean. Continental breakfast is quite adequate. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.... More

The only thing preventing me from leaving an "excellent" review is the fact the boiler was having issues and so we had no hot water the first night of our stay - to which we had an event to get ready for. Staff is very friendly. Although there is no lift (elevator), the place is cozy. Downstairs breakfast is a... More

I found this hotel, very last minute when London seemed to be pretty full and after a rather exhaustive search. I am really glad that I did. The hotel is situated very close to the Pimlico tube-station and in a beautiful street lined with flower baskets and lamp posts. I was greeted by a Mr John Desira and the book... More

We looked at a number of hotels in the vicinity as my wife was attending a weekend singing school nearby. We chose this one because it struck a good balance between price and on-line ratings. The location close to Pimlico tube station (and not too far from Victoria station) was a product of where we wanted to be, but was... 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.
