I have always had in my head that London was one of those unfortunate places where the hotels were very expensive while offering lousy service. The panorama, luckily, is changing.
Pestana is a nice option if you want to stay close to Chelsea area. It is a part of the new developments at the south bank, opposite the Battersea Park. It is new. What I liked most was the room - spacious, modern design, a huge bed... very comfortable. Breakfasts were acceptable. It has a small gym (small is 4-5 pieces of equipment). There is a spa, but I did not use it.
The staff were very helpful... a mixture of nationalities but all very attentive and available to help.
Two things to take into account:
- location is good but the closest tuve station is Sloane´s Square.. you can get there by bus or add a 10-15 min walk... a cab is 5 pounds...
- riverside view rooms... while you get a nice view by night on Thames... you will get the impressive Battersea Power Station which is being reconstructed... and train rails between Victoria and Battersea train stations... trains every 2-4 minutes
Have a good stay!
