Reviewed October 23, 2013

We were looking for a room that was close to the main part of London, was close to transportation, was clean and did not cost a small fortune. This hotel hit all those check boxes. The room was very small but it was clean and breakfast was included. We could walk out the front door, take a right and in the middle of the next block catch the 24 bus for a day of sightseeing. Staff was friendly. I would not think of having more than 2 people in the room...not even a baby. The price was reasonable for London in that section . Neighborhood was clean and quiet and within a few blocks there were other nice places to eat or grab a coffee. I gave it an average just due to the size.

I have quite often commented in other responses that unfortunately older style properties do tend to have small rooms. The main reason is due to uplifting standards whereby guests now expect as a normal service an en-suite. The space for these are taken from the bedrooms original size.

We do however, have triple and family rooms for those that wish to have larger rooms.

All in all you seem to have enjoyed your stay with us and we very much hope to see you again.

My stay here was for one night only. The staff were friendly and helpful, I got there early and could leave my bags at reception while spending my day in London.

The room was small but clean. Tea & coffee were provided, but only powdered milk therefore the tea was pretty horrible.

Position is quite good - about 15 minutes walk from Victoria (with bags) and 5 minutes to Pimlico Underground.

The breakfast room is very small so you need to time when you go down to breakfast. I wasn't in a hurry so was happy to wait until after 9 for breakfast. Breakfast ok but not fantastic.

Overall the stay was pleasant but I felt a little overpriced for what you got.

Thank you for your review.

We are a budget Hotel and I trust you took this into consideration with your comments?

Most guests feel the breakfast on offer is above average so I am sorry you did not feel the same way.

Many older properties do have small rooms but we do make a huge effort to make them clean, modern and comfortable.

Stayed at Victoria Inn while in London for 4 nights. Rooms were small, but bed was quite comfortable and everything was extremely clean. Bathroom was tiny. Had great breakfast, even had scrambled eggs along with cereal, breads and fruit. Price was right.

Room Tip: no air conditioner Choose room off street as it is noisy

A very pleasant place to stay in a great location when visiting London. Located in the Belgrave district and nestled in the midst of lots of other Victorian-styled hotels and B&Bs, the price was very reasonable compared to everyone else. As you are only 5 minutes easy walking distance from Pimblico tube station and less than 10 minutes walk from Victoria station it is incredibly easy to connect to all the other tube stations and tourist attractions within London. All the staff were extremely friendly and courteous, and our room on the ground floor was very clean and well kept. Yes, as are most European hotel rooms, the room was small by American standards, but as a place to sleep at night it was perfectly fine. It included a view overlooking a quaint courtyard where one could enjoy the much better than average complimentary breakfast if one desired. The staff could also help arrange practically any tours within or outside of London. Quite a few pubs and quality restaurants within a small radius, and the area felt very safe even when coming back late at night after very full days of sightseeing. Only complaint was no complimentary wi-fi service, and the service I paid for was iffy at best within our room - could only get reliable connection from the hotel lobby.

As I was going on a day trip on the Orient Express my son booked this hotel as it was only as short walk to Victoria station. The rooms are basic and very clean with a lift to all floors. I found the staff very pleasant and easy to talk to and the breakfast was excellent. It is in a nice area with plenty of things to do and 2 underground stations nearby. I found it reasonably safe walking in the main areas at night where there were theatres, shops and lots of restaurants.

A pleasant stay at Victoria inn during my London trip was what made my trip more memorable & comfortable. The room was quite spacious for 3 of us. Rooms are quite warming & relaxing after a tiring day.
