“Traveled with teens..”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very basic hotel but a great location. The tube is just around the corner and Victoria station is only a 10 minute stroll away and beside that there's plenty of restaurants including mcdonalds and KFC..Pizza express is literally around the corner from the hotel, there's also an Indian and Spanish restaurant too. The hotel itself was clean, convenient and the staff are very friendly. The beds are very comfy. The lady who runs it is very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast is continental but there's plenty of it to keep you going till lunchtime. We were on the third floor and there is no lift so if you are thinking of staying here just be consious that you'll have to kart your bags up stairs. But don't let that put you off for where it is and the customer service it's well worth a visit...

Room Tip: Like I said there are alot of stairs so when booking maybe request a ground floor room!

We stayed at this lovely little hotel whilst visiting family in London. Mary was friendly and welcoming with great knowledge of the area. Overall great value for money for a clean comfortable stay! Can't ask for more than that.

One week staying with my family (husband and two children). Our room was nice and clean, bathroom quite small but adequate. Location of Blades Hotel is splendid - peaceful area. Pimlico tube station is just behind the corner and bus route goes via Belgrave Road very often. Breakfast is good, but some variousities would be nice when you stay for one week. If I would say some hopes for the future: put some shelves or hooks on the wall for clothes and other stuff, please. The hotel staff was very helpful and kind. But altogether: highly recommended place to stay in London.

Stayed three nights at the Blades. Room and bathroom were small but clean! Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Location is excellent; five minutes walk from Pimlico tube station; also near Victoria station so it's quick and easy to get a sightseeing bus. My first trip to London; I was quite impressed with the friendliness of the people; will definitely be going back.

I came to London for a business trip for one week and stayed in Blades Hotel in Belgrave Road. I strongly recommend everyone this lovely place. Mary, the owner of the hotel is a lovely person who was very helpful and kind. The hotel is great, clean and well decorated. The breakfast is hillarious.

Just spent two weeks in this lovely hotel for a chance to explore London aside the general tourist atractions. The rooms were clean and in my opinion well decorated. Both the nice bathroom and the flat screen TV were a plus as well as the kettle and equipement for tea and coffee; the stairs are not for everyone but managable. During my stay the staff was always friendly (espacially Mary the manager) and helpful. Breakfast was a treat; though some might wish for more variation on the offered food it was always fresh and tasty.
The location a short walk away from Pimlico tube station is suprem, this and the busstop nearby invite to really explore the city to its fullest.
Overall an experience I would like to repeat.

Blades hotel was a nice choice. Very well located, just a few minutes from Pimlico underground station and very clean. Our stay was very comfortable, and the staff, Mary and Rafa, were so friendly and helpful with our family that we never thought of being treated so badly by one of the Blades employees, Claudia, whose bad manners and bad temper ruined a wonderful stay.

bladeshotel, Owner at Blades Hotel, responded to this review, April 11, 2013
I must apologise profoundly for this girls bad conduct which was completely unacceptable. She is no longer employed here as her position was temporary and I think she has gone home to Romania.

I can only apologise again and thank this very nice family for their kind appreciation of Mary and Rafael and hope that they can remember the good aspects of their stay with us rather than the negative ones.
