“Great Hotel, Excellent Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We made Luna Simone our home base as we explored London and the surrounding areas during our 12 day vacation in England. We could have not been more pleased by this intimate, family-run hotel in Victoria. First off, the location is ideal. There are two tube stops within 10 walking distance (Pimlico & Victoria) and the Victoria Coach station is also ten minutes away and great for catching trains to locations outside of London (Bath, Windsor, etc..). Further, the number 24 bus picks up/drops off right outside the hotel and will take you to many of the main tourist attractions. The neighborhood is safe, with lots of great pubs and restaurants nearby. The brothers who run this hotel were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Breakfast is included in the price, and was always a good, solid start to day.

Our room was clean and quiet (despite facing the street), the bed was comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the street. The room is small, but is typical of the typo of accommodations you find in Europe. It was really a great value for the money,

Room Tip: Like many intimate, family-run hotels in Europe, there is no elevator. If this is a problem for you...

Nestled between Victoria station and Pimlico subway, this hotel is an excellent choice for exploring London. Price is normal for a London hotel, but the room is a tad bit small. Very clean room and bathroom and very friendly staff. Breakfast is too early (7am-8.30am) as in any hotel but sufficient. All in all a good place to stay and probably a lot better than a lot of other hotels in the neighbourhood.

I have stayed at the Luna Simone twice now (Oct and May) and will be returning in June 2013. I could not have asked for a better experience. The room (a double) was perfect for just me and I am sure the triple will work just fine for my two daughters and me when we arrive in June. In addition, the rooms are spotless and cleaned to perfection every day.

The location is in a great neighborhood, close to the Victoria Station. The 24 bus stops right in front of the hotel and will take you right to the heart of the city within a few stops.

I can't say enough about how amazing the entire staff is at the Luna Simone. They will certainly make sure your stay is as pleasant one.

Room Tip: I have stayed in room 5 (a double room) and it was perfect for just me. It has a balcony overlookin...

Stayed at this quaint hotel for a few days before leaving on a cruise out of Southampton. I selected the Luna & Simone because I wanted to be near Victoria metro stop, near the bus station taking me to the cruise port, and because of the Trip Advisor reviews - my travel bible. This hotel is owned and operated by twin brothers who I found to be the most cordial, engaging, caring and helpful individuals I've encountered on my many travels to Europe. While my twin room was small, it was adequate and very clean. The room included free internat and a fantastic hot breakfast that you could order from a menu and delivered to your table by one of the twins. I really felt at home here and I would definitely stay at the Luna & Simone again on a return visit to London.

The hotel is located conveniently near two tube stops (including Victoria Station) on a nice quiet street. The neighborhood is a little more residential, but there were a reasonable number of pubs and coffee shops nearby.

The breakfast served was good, offering traditional English breakfast (very hearty). Also, the hoteliers were very friendly and provided great service.

The room was pretty basic, but had all the necessities, and was comfortable and clean.

Also, for the price and the area they offer a good value. We'd recommend a visit.

This is a very good solution for a short journey in London. If you arrive at Gatwick Airport and then at Victoria Station you walk few minutes until this clean and comfortable hotel, complete with everything you need!

Room Tip: I had a room on the 4th floor at the back and it was very quiet. Very nice shower

We had a comfortable, convenient stay at this hotel in Central London a few blocks from Victoria Station and within very walk-able distance to Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. Our family of four (kids 20, 17) booked the family ensuite. The hotel was nice and clean, newly refurbished with modern bathroom fixtures, though the bathroom was tiny and the rooms on the smallish side--probably pretty standard for London. Our room had a double bed and two singles. The front desk staff and others were all very nice and helpful, very welcoming. Breakfast was sumptuous and savory--eggs, English bacon, toast, yogurt, juices, coffee, tea....quite adequate, and served from 7 a.m. to 8:30. Beware there is no elevator but we only had to go down one flight with our bags so it wasn't an issue for us. We'd stay here again.
