Stayed at the Luna and Simone, chosen for convenient location. Hotel is also recommended in Rick Steve's London 2013, and with his book and cash, the hotel allows a 10% discount. Hotel is in a quiet neighborhood close to Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace. Staff was always pleasant and helpful, even emailing after our reservation to make certain we were able to handle stairs, as there are no lifts. We had a second floor twin room. Room was very small, but clean and pleasant with comfortable beds. Bathroom was very clean and adequate in size. Breakfast is included in the price of the room, with a choice of a hot traditional breakfast or a lighter breakfast of cereal and yogurt. The Luna and Simone is very reasonably priced and we considered it a great value and a pleasant experience. Would definitely stay there again.
Recommend The Jugged Hare Pub at 49 Chiswell, which is within walking distance of the Luna and Simone. Great atmosphere with typical pub fare plus a few lighter options.
