“Great location”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

The amazing location is obvious. Other pros include a fresh breakfast that runs late and free cheese of an evening. The staff here went out of their way to allow us to check in early after traveling for a day and a half from oz. windowless room is small but clean. The bathroom serves as the end of the bed with walls of frosted glass. Ok for couples but maybe not for friends unless you're ok with watching each other shower. Great, free wifi

I really can't say enough about how great the location was here. The area was nice and it was a two minute walk from the Victoria station. Being this close to the station made both getting to the Hotel from the airport and exploring the city incredibly easy. The service was great and the room was very clean. I will say that the room was small, just as others mentioned, but we knew that going in so it wasn't a problem. The two of us were still able to fit comfortably with our bags. I will say that the water from the shower splashes into the sink area of the bathroom so you have to be mindful of that when someone is showering and the other is getting ready though. Next time we visit London we'll definitely be staying here again.

Two minutes from Victoria- so convenient. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was exactly as described on their web page. I had an inside room with no window, which was cosy, very quiet (obviously no street noise- huge plus for me) and comfortable.
So many hotels try to take your money at every opportunity, so what a nice surprise to find free sky movies, free water in the room, free wifi, and the icing on the cake...free cheese and wine in the early evening. The cheeses, I discovered, are from a local deli, with a great selection, and high quality... and a tasty fondue. Wine was unlimited. I didn't need dinner! I loved the communal dining space- as a single traveler, it was nice to sit with others for a chat. Great concept.

Room Tip: Room 610 was very quiet.

Location is everything here. If your up for walking then most of the main tourist sites are within a couple of miles and if your not then your right on victoria mainline and tube station with a couple of theatres a few hundred Yards away and multiple pubs and shops on the doorstep.The internal windowless rooms are a bit like an inner cabin on a cruise ship but even smaller .They have spent some money on things like the flat screen tv , sky sports and movies to distract you from incipient claustrophobia.The staff are extremely obliging and helpful and being let in early was a bonus .The free wine and cheese each evening is a nice welcoming touch . The room was very warm one would hope they turn the a/c on in the summer .Great for a couple of nights stay in Central london I think I would need more space and a window for more nights than that .

Room Tip: Pay more if you want a window but I guess the view will just be traffic .

we wish we'd discovered the Z Hotel Victoria sooner as it's an ideal room for a quick affordable night in London and does exactly what it promises. Centrally located right by Victoria Station with tube, train, bus and taxi facilities only a few minutes away, it has a modern cool friendly style, directly targeted at busy people who do not intend to spend long in a hotel room when visiting London.

The welcome was quick, warm and efficient, the room we had booked (a Queen Room with window) was, as the website made clear, very small with a shower wedged at the end of the bed and a queen sized bed wedged against the wall on one side, but was perfectly adequate for busy people like us who were going to rush out to the theatre, have a late night and early start. The bed was rather hard and the design of the hooks for hangers needs thought as it is directly above a heater meaning too warm clothing if heating is required, and the tap in the shower room defeated my small hands and needed adjustment, but there are many benefits:

From 5 - 7 pm each night there is free wine, cheese fondue and cheese, bread and biscuits available in the reception/foyer. The breakfast for a modest £8 is perfectly adequate and the check out speedy and seamless. The lifts arrive within seconds of being summoned and the rooms are soundproofed.

For those without claustrophobic tendencies there are rooms for under £100 which have no windows and are even smaller, apparently, than the one we had but I understand have all the same facilities.

Try it if all you want is a bed for the night, a shower, loo and basin which work and a centrally located bolthole.

Room Tip: I'd pay a bit more and ensure your room has a window... but those without windows to whom I spok...

Clean, modern and very compact this hotel was great for me - a single in a double room, but two people in a double room would be falling all over each other. If that's what you want of course.. The complimentary evening cheese and wine is not a gimmick as there was plenty of choice and quantity. The only real downside is that someone (the cleaner?) left my door open when I was out all day, the upside is that nothing went missing.

Room Tip: I just asked for a quiet room and they found me one at the back. Can't say fairer than that.
