I stayed in this hotel for two nights with my daughter. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Victoria Coach Station and the Victoria Palace Theatre and I wasn't disappointed - both were only 15 minutes walk away, as was Victoria Underground Station.
Yes, the room was small but there was a small area to hang clothes and it was quite sufficient for the amount of time we were there. The room was on the first floor on the front of the building with a door on to a balcony but I didn't hear any noise at night (and the bus stop was right outside our window/door).
The staff were friendly, particularly on arrival when we were given directions to the Theatre and told to feel free to ask anytime if we wanted to know anything else as Reception was open 24 hours.
The whole hotel appeared to be spotless and recently decorated.
Breakfast was continental but there was plenty of it with no restriction on the amount you could have - the drinks were out of a vending machine but were, surprisingly, piping hot.
I would definitely stay here again if I was visiting London for a short time and would recommend it to my friends.
