Early check in, extremely surprised that room was ready and having checked in at 10:00 am we were free to explore for the entire day. Room small but quiet and on top floor as requested. All staff at front desk were excellent and very helpful....More
My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend in September. Ideally placed for Victoria Station which is a tube, train and coach station (5 minute walk if you come out the coach station entrance). We stayed in the Annexe building which...More

Near Victoria Station, easy to get to wherever you want by tube or bus.
I stayed in the annex, near the main building. Although it didn't have a lift (elevator), the room was big enough for 1 person and very clean. There wasn't much noise...More

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.

The Tube is the most affordable way to go.
I went on the Tube website ahead of time and bought a Tube Oyster Visitor Card. I just put 15 lbs. on it (the trip wound up costing around 6 pounds--but I put extra money on the card because the cost depends on the time of day you're on the Tube--I didn't want to be worried about it. Plus I was going to use the Tube later anyway so it didn't matter). They mailed the Oyster Card to my home in the LA Area in the USA in less than 3 days. I was amazed at how fast I received it!
We arrived into Heathrow Terminal Two. (As an aside--we went ahead to a Cashpoint--word for British ATM-- right at the airport and got some pounds there so there was no need to go to an exchange to get cash). Then we took the escalators down to the Tube. Easy.
Directions for Tube to Victoria Station:
++From Terminal 2 go down the escalators to the Tube (I believe you can also hop on the Tube from other Heathrow terminals)
++From Heathrow take the Piccadilly line (Cockfosters needs to be the end station)
++Then get off at the South Kensington Station and transfer to the District Line (Upminster needs to be the end station)
++Get off at Victoria Station
++The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station depending on how fast you walk and how much you're lugging with you!
On the Tube Website you'll see the maps of how the stations are laid out. My directions will make more sense once you see it. It's a very nice website.
As always, watch out for pick pockets. The Tube gets crazy crowded at rush hour so when you're getting close to your exit stations be near the door so you can get out quick. You'll have very little time to hop on and off of the Tube.
If you have little ones, you may want to take a taxi. Uber is also an option. Taxis and Uber are not cheap because Heathrow is a ways away from London, but the Tube may be hard if you have a lot of bags and small children to deal with.
We loved using the Tube and we also used Uber while we were in London. Both were great and efficient to use.
Hope this helps! Enjoy your trip!
