“comfortable stay in a good location”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

Excellent location, walking distance to Victoria Station(10 mins), pleasant and quiet area of the city and easy to access all other areas of city. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. For London, in comparison to other hotels which we considered, this accomodation was very good value for money. The breakfast was simple but a well organised continental breakfast. The rooms were decorated to a high standard but one of our two bedrooms was slightly small on size, which I'm aware is normal for many London Hotels. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: no lifts available. request ground floor if this is an issue.

The hotel was clean and everything looked new. But - the several fire doors throughout the hotel had strong return hinges and hard stops. The result was many bangs reverberating through the building throughout the night, preventing or interrupting sleep. Other points - there was no fire evacuation sign on the door and the service for the buffet breakfast was indifferent.

Great location near both Victoria coach and tube stations. The room (particularly the bathroom) was very dirty. If the rooms were clean and the fittings in working order, the price of the hotel would be reasonable. But who wants to scrimp when it means staying in squalour? Not me!!!!!
Wake up James House and clean up your act.

In all of my travels around Europe and the UK, I have never stayed in a hotel as dirty and unprofessionally run as the James House near Victoria Station. I booked the James House for two nights at the end of June because the hotel was listed in a guidebook of London which I normally find to be very reliable (Rick Steves).

BEWARE—the hotel has come under new management so you cannot rely on what the guidebooks or trip advisor reviews tell you.

My room was very small, very hot, and there was black dirty soot on the wall, above the door. The bathroom (which was shared with one other room) was filthy. The shower fixtures were rusting, there was black mold on the tiles, and the strench of mildew was appalling. The smell when you opened the door was so severe that I chose not to shower. The worst part was that there was a pair of dirty men’s underpants on the floor of the shower! When I complained to the manger about the disgusting state of the bathroom, he told me that for the price I was paying (£55 or $110), I could not expect to have a clean room or bathroom!

Other problems--the management increased the price of the room mid-way through the booking process and the surcharge for using a credit card was repeatedly raised (a tactic to get you to pay in cash). The worst part is that the manager insists on being paid in full, UP FRONT for all the nights you plan to stay at this hotel---so once you see the room, it is too late to complain or to have any kind of recourse. I left after one night and the manger refused me a refund.

The only virtue of this hotel is its location, but there are so many other hotels in the Victoria Station area that it is not worth putting up with James House.

After reading the other reviews to set our expectations, my husband & I decided to book 3 nights for late May. The location is great! Easy walking distance to Victoria Station, Buckingham Palace, etc & the price, considering the exchange rate, was not too bad. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Marco, the friendly owner, who showed us to our room on the main floor/street level at the front of the house, I think it was number 11 (and gave us some sight-seeing advice). Double bed, small TV, plenty of closet space, TINY bathroom which served its purpose, but would have been helpful to have a little shelf in there for our toiletries. The carpets were a little worn, but everything was relatively clean and in working order. We've been in Europe before and knew the room would be small which honestly, is fine since we didn't spend much time there! The breakfast was good - cereal, packaged baked goods, fresh fruit, coffee/tea/juice - plenty to get you on your way. Marco was readily available every morning to answer questions & offer suggestions for sight-seeing & transportation. Overall, a great place - just be realistic with your expectations.

James House Hotel was located on a very quiet safe street just a few minutes walk from Victoria station. It is within easy walking distance to Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and many other attractions. The hotel owner was away during our stay, but the interim manager was very welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. (He made phone calls to the airport to track down my missing luggage while we were out sightseeing all day.) Our room was very small, but charming. the beds were clean and comfortable. The room could use a good cleaning however, as the pipes along the wall were coated thickly with dust. and we found bits of food under the bed. Bathroom was tiny but clean. breakfast was very basic and unappealing.. just cornflakes, cruiscants in plastic wrap, tangerines, juice and coffee. though London is an expensive city, I thought the room rates were high for the accommodations, with only continental breakfast provided. There were many other hotels on this street, and I would recommend checking rates at a few others to see if you can get a better rate. The location couldn't be better.

A buddy and I traveled to London in August. On first getting to London we went to the James House and were warmly welcomed by Carlos, the new owner of the James House. He was a friendly younger gentlemen who was both informative about attractions and nightlife.

We stayed in a double room and shared a bathroom with the other guests to get that European experience (although rooms with their own bathrooms are available). There was breakfast and plenty of coffee every morning along with cnversation with other guests while we planned our days.

Thank You James House.
