This is very simple hotel located in the heart of Oxford. It's all about location as neither rooms nor staff is very impressing. Room was basic but clean. If it overlooks the main street it can be loud, if the backyard you will get all the airconditions working :-) But it's not such a bother as Oxford is not this...

This hotel makes up for luxury and facilities with location and convenience. It is right in the centre of Oxford near all the shops, restaurants and museums. Our room had quadruple glazing so noise was not a problem but the whole hotel needed a fresh coat of paint and there were loose fittings in the bathroom. Nevertheless, the room itself...

We wanted somewhere within easy reach of the bus station and near museums and galleries.Victoria House fills the bill excellently if you are planning a short trip and want somewhere central as we did.The rail station is quite near too so it is great for anyone arriving on public transport . It is worth mentioning that there is quite a...

when the description says "active street" or words to those effect--be ware! Windows with no screens, no A/C, hot days (and nights) and party street. Once they opened it after hours then the motorcycles and trash trucks start. Don't expect any sleep (I suppose if you stagger in then the noisy may not matter). Although you are given a key...

Arrived at 1am after travelling down from Glasgow by car. There is an underground car park in Gloucester Street which is a short walk from the hotel, but it didn't appear to be open when we arrived despite saying it was 24-hours on the map. However there is another open air car park just round the corner a 3-min walk...

Needing to stay just one night in Oxford I found the Victoria house hotel was the ideal location being central and only ten minutes walk from the rail station. Being situated on such a busy street its front glass door is is squeezed in between bars and restaurants so not very impressive. When I first stepped in through the door...

Stay here only if you're desperate. Grubby entrance hall, shabby public areas, no lift, no A/C, loose tap in the bathroom, a toilet with a flush handle that collides with the wall, damp up the wall of the bedroom, very noisy when the window is open. Sleeping in the car would have been a better option.

The room was okay. The rest not good. You'll strongly hope that there is no fire. The fire alarms are not respected by the employees. It is located in a busy street in the middle of pubs, restaurants and clubs, it's noisy and full of people all night.

This is an average hotel, clean, functional, good wi-fi, no frills, no breakfast, no lift, as a last minute buy reasonably priced - but in a great location considerably cheaper than those hotels around it. Downside noisy at night if window open - no a/c.
