The room was very nice and fairly large considering the age of the building. The staff was always helpful. There was not an iron and ironing board in the closet, but I'm sure the staff would have done something if I had needed one. The hotel is conveniently located to the Victoria Railway/Underground station and Victoria Bus Station. The breakfast... More

The Windermere was such a charming place. A cute hotel tucked away on a quiet street but close enough to all the attractions and the Tube with an easy walk. A few great restaurants in the area, too. The staff was amazingly helpful and friendly - able to provide us with recommendations, directions, and even tea while we waited for... More

Room was a tad small, but it was a great room. Service was incredible. Always someone at the reception desk willing to help, either to help you find your way or get you some new towels. We would definitely go back.

I needed somewhere comfortable to ward off jet lag, within close proximity to Victoria Coach Station. Could not have made a better choice! An easy walk to both the coach & rail stations, but far enough away to not be bothered by noise, and fairly close to several tourist sights (Buckingham Palace, Westminster). My room was perfect, quiet, with a/c... 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.
