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

We stayed for one night at Melbourne House in a street that is lined with small hotels all the way from Victoria Station to St George's square in Pimlico. The Pimlico (blue line, Victoria Line) station is really close by or you can walk 12 minutes to Victoria Station, which is fantastic if you fly into London at Gatwick (Gatwick... More

It is a perfect location for people willing to do a little bit sightseeing because the location is very good and breakfast served is of a nice quality The room was small but very clean, so was the bathroom. What may be a potential challenge is the noisy... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights since I came to London for business. I had one of the single bed rooms and I was really pleasantly surprised after reading some weird reviews about the two single bed rooms in this hotel. The room was big enough for one person, it was spotlessly clean, it had free wifi which... More

A nice place to stay when in London. Good installations, very clean, nice breakfast and good service. Bathroom with tub and shower. Well placed, close to British Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. I recommend.

I arrived a bit earlier than the check-in time, so I was able to leave my luggage by the reception. I was warned that London follows a lower standard when it comes to hygiene compared to what I´m used to in Norway and other countries, but the first thing I noticed was how clean everything was. I was assigned room... More
