Hanover Hotel Victoria
Ranked #270 of 571 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I stayed here one night on a short trip to London. The hotel is basic, but clean and functional. It does exactly what it says on the tin. I must admit, after reading some reviews I was slightly concerned but with no need. After all, if you book a cheap hotel room in London you are not going to get the Ritz! And if you are in London, why would you be worried the room is small, or the tv only has a few channels? Londons a great city, get out and see it. The room was clean, warm and comfortable, towels were fresh and the only slight criticism i have is the water temperature was a bit hit and miss. I was on the lower ground floor and felt secure. If its noise you are worried about, and what city and hotel doesn't have noise, go buy some wax earplugs. I never travel without them. I didnt try breakfast as I was meeting someone but there are plenty of cafes etc only a few minutes walk from the hotel. I hope to be back in the summer, and will certainly stay here if I can.

Our experiences were like few comments before: great hotel, suburb location and remember you get what you pay for! Or actually this was more than I expected because of the price, 300 pounds/ per 5 nights.
Our room was on the second floor facing to the street. You can hear street noise (and other customers) quite well, but we didn't mind after long days of walking. The room it's self was a bit small but good sized still, the bed is 140cm wide, lining were clean&soft and the bathroom was clean. Breakfast was nice bonus, nothing special but good way to start a day. Our plane left from Standsted 7 a.m so it was nice that the hotel was just two blocks away from the bus station.

You really get what you're paying for. There's is a 24hours services, which means you are able to leave and enter the room anytime you want. The reception keeps your roomkey when you leave, so you can't loose it. The breakfast area is a bit small, but it offers everything you need. Drinks, toast, croissants, yoghurt and cereal. The room it self was quite big. The only downsite to the room was the bathroom. Our bathroom had a strange smell to it, but futher is was perfectly fine.

I can recommend this hotel, because of the big rooms, the good service and the good location. It was only a five minute walk to the victoria underground.

We've been to this hotel two times now. First in 2010, with youngsters (18&30), and now, just the two of us. Both times were very satisfying.

The rooms are very clean, the staff changes sheets and towels daily, and the whole hotel has undergone a renovation since 2010. The carpets were new, bathrooms renovated...
To those, who complain about narrow stairways, small rooms, or the absence of a lift...
Well, of course the rooms are small, thay need to acommodate as many as possible, but the hotel is for sleeping mainly, so there is no need for lots of extra space. Also, the hotel is built in the middle of a series of rowhouses, were normal folk live as well. A typical british house isn't SUPPOSED to have anything but narrow halls, and steep stairs. If these are a problem, be prepared to pay extra: you need to book a more modern and business-y hotel somewhere else. This is a small family owned business. The staff is pleasant and efficient, they will help as long as you remember to ask politely. No need for crabbines.

The breakfast is humble, yes, but the place is more like a hostel anyway, so don't go in expecting fo a 4-star buffet. They have a reasonable selection of youghurts, bread, jam, tea, and cereal.

The location is SUPERB. Dozens of buses will take you straight from the doorstep to any corner of London you might need to visit. The Victoria Station is approx. 150m away, and from there you can take the tube, or the Gatwick Express straight to the airport.
There is a big grocery store nearby - this was a big help with cutting food expenses, and most of the rooms have a kettle for tea (or noodles, soup etc...)

In a nutshell:
- You get what you pay for, so be realistic with your expectations.
- Steep&narrow stairs and halls, not for the disabled!
- Thin walls, not for the easily disturbed!
- Remember to ask and open your mouth while booking in case of special needs, requests, or problems.
- Small rooms, this is not a lounging hotel!
- Awesome location, several buses, the tube, an express, and a convenience store nearby.
- Clean, cozy, JUST RENOVATED. Nice staff.
- Excellent quality-price ratio

9/10.

We knew that we could not expect a lot from the low cost hotels in London and were very confused which one to choose from the Victoria area. We could not have chosen better! The hotel was very clean and had a modern interior and a friendly staff. Our room 403 was on the 4th floor (83 steps btw!) with no view from the window but that didn't matter because we knew there would be no lift and we did not spend a lot of time in the room. The bathroom was clean with nice toiletries, bed very comfortable and the free wifi was a big plus. If something must be given a minus it would be the fixed shower. Not a very good way to take care of your hygiene but during a short stay it was not that big of a problem.

We were pleasantly surprised that the breakfast was not just a toast with marmalade but offered also ham and cheese, cerials, buns, croissants, yoghurt, fruit salad, a coffee machine with many alternatives as well as two different kind of juices. A good start for the day.

Location was also good for us since we came from Gatwick to Victoria station by train. Short walk and very easy to find.
