“Great for the money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed here during the London 2012 Summer Olympics. We thought it was great! The rooms were small, but nothing out of the ordinary for Europe. They were very clean and nice. The bathroom had recently been redone and was now very nice. The hotel is family run and they really do a nice job. Each morning they serve a hearty breakfast (included in the price of the room) and serve the guests themselves. The location of the hotel is good - conveniently located near Victoria station (access to trains and the tube) and Pimlico station. This area provides more of a neighborhood feel than a big, touristy area (even though the entire street is hotel after hotel). Its really a nice quaint looking area. Our only worry about our stay was that the hotel didn't have any air conditioning. Since we were going to be staying in July, we were afraid it would be uncomfortably hot. The weather, in true London fashion, was not an issue and stayed cool in the 60's (farenheit). We would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend this place to friends.

We only stopped one night . Very helpful staff.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone. Easy to get to sites nearby on foot.
The room was functional and for the price; very good.

They even sent my son's belt to us in the post when he realized he had left it behind.
A big thanks to them for our(short) stay.
Next time we come to London we will be stopping here.

This hotel is conveniently located near Victoria and Pimlico stations and around there are some nice restaurants. The room was small but it was clean. However as it was in top floor it was very warm also in autumn and as there is no elevator, the walk upstarts was exhausting especially with luggage. Some disturbing noises took place in late evening likely related to heating of water.

We booked our 8-night stay based on tripadvisor reviews and were very pleased. The location was perfect for sight-seeing (an easy walk to Victoria station), the staff were helpful. A big plus was a computer available for guests.

We booked this hotel after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we werent dissapointed. We arrived early and the rooms were ready for us. They were spotlessly clean, comfortable, and bigger than expected. The bathroom was very nice and the shower as hot as you wanted it.
The staff couldnt do enough to help, they were great with my 5 year old son at breakfast and definately made us feel welcome. They were more than happy to let us leave our bags on the day of departure which was also a big help.
I cant recommend this hotel enough - friendly, comfortable, clean and ideally located (the no. 24 bus stops right outside and yet at night the road is quiet). We would definately stay again.

We stayed for 5 nights, and could not have had a better experience. Before we even arrived, I was impressed with their service. I was having some trouble with getting a call through from the U.S., and emailed my question instead - within minutes, my phone rang with an offer of assistance. Our request for a room on a lower level was honored, and the staff was more than willing to answer follow-up questions by email. And, when we arrived, they couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, from start to finish.

Based on the reviews, I was expecting the room to be tiny, and I was prepared to grin and bear it since people seemed to be otherwise happy with their stay. But, for two people who really only came back to the hotel to sleep, our twin room was more than suitable for both of us to be comfortable without tripping over each other. The space is well-planned, and both the outer room and bathroom were easy to maneuver without feeling cramped. The free Wi-Fi was reliable, at least in our room on the front of the "Luna" side.

Breakfast offers enough options (hot and cold) to get you started for a day of activity. You also get your own key to access the outer doors, so you can come and go as you please. Reaching the hotel was a cinch - while Pimlico is a bit closer, Victoria offers more options and is about a 15 minute walk away (and an even shorter bus ride). And it's a great walk - a mix of residential/business with several good restaurants, two markets, and a drugstore (chemist) along the way. In fact, the location is one of the biggest bonuses - aside from what's in walking distance, the #24 bus (within steps of the door) is on a well-connected route. We did many of the "big" attractions, and were able to rely on our feet and Travelcard all week (great for the budget, although we missed talking to the cab drivers!) In spite of all of the amenities, things seemed to quiet down at night and we had no issues with street noise.

Just a few mentions (not as negatives, but just by way of information):
- The walls are thin. Luckily, we only heard the occasional cough or sneeze - but, we could hear them. I'm not sure if it's the same for all of the rooms, but things might have been different things with louder (or more..."active") neighbors.
- Stairs weren't an issue, since we only had to go up a couple of flights. But, as many others have stated, a higher room could make for a more strenuous journey.
- It's Fall/Autumn and the weather was mild. But, the rooms can get a bit stuffy after being closed up for a while (i.e. during the day, while we were out). However, we were always able to get the air moving again by cracking the window and running the ceiling fan - problem solved. Not sure if things would be different in a more extreme part of the year (i.e. Summer).

All in all, we were completely satisfied, and it really did feel like a home away from home. Hopefully, we will be able to return to London soon and there is nowhere else that I would rather stay! I recommend them without reservation.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor (two flights up) have nice long windows that open on to a "Juliet&quo...

I have recently spent another 3 nights at the Luna & Simone and once again have not been disappointed. We had a twin room which was large enough for the both of us to feel comfortable and the bathroom was surprisingly roomy. The hotel is in a great location with many attractions within walking distance. There are restaurants and supermarkets in easy reach and a choice of 2 tube stations just minutes away. This was my third stay and this hotel and would still be my first choice should I return to London.
