I don't usually book independent hotels when I go on business travel but due to short notice I had no choice in this case. I was pleasantly surprised by the furnish and fittings of the room which whilst basic, were clean and tidy and obviously well cared for. Breakfast is nothing to write home about but luckily there are plenty...

Stayed for 2 nights with one child. Did perfectly fine for what we needed. Very close to Victoria Station, Buckingham Palace etc. Breakfast was all you'd want - cereal and toast. To get a hotel at the price with breakfast included in such a central London area is unheard of. Room clean, kettle, shower all good. Wi-Fi was good too....

Was easy to find. The beds are a little uncomfortable if you suffer from back ache. The floor boards are rather squeaky. You can hear all the road works and noise from outside. You can hear people from the next room talking

We thank you for taking the time to write a review and have made a note of the points that you have raised. We will address them shortly. We have already changed all the mattresses in the building and are looking at ways of soundproofing the walls.

Taking into account that London is very expensive and that my boyfriend and I stayed for just one weekend, this hotel was ok. Furthermore, it was few minutes walking from the Victoria station, which for us was quite important to be quickly at Gatwick airport. The rooms are very tiny as well as the bathroom but supernew and quite clean!...

We thank you for taking the time to write a review and have made a note of your comments. We have recently refurbished the whole place but will endeavour to correct some of the issues that you have raised. As for the breakfast, all our adverts mention a continental breakfast and that is what we serve, with a few extras....

I chose this hotel because I was looking for accomodation in Victoria as I was travelling by plane and I wanted to be at walking distance from the Coach Station. I can say I wasn't disappointed as it was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom, although tiny, had clearly been refurbished. Good breakfast with fresh toast served...

This hotel was amazing from the moment i opened the door to it. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room it was clean, nice little bed, shower and ensuite. The bnb had a good breakfast spread and it was a very good stay from start to finish. I will defiantly stay here again if I'm for another trip. :)

I was put up here by work and I must say I was a little disappointed. The hotel is fine though and whilst rather run down and basic in many areas it was clean. I was on the top floor which is up steep stairs so no good for disabled people (I can't confirm if there are ground floor rooms)....

The location was great, as mentioned by others. To get to the room, you had to walk at least 5 steep stairs to get there, but I guess that this is normal for London standards. Do not book this hotel if you're less mobile, then look for a hotel with a lift (they are harder to find in these areas,...

The hotel is very close to Victoria station so very convenient for travel. Room was small but very clean and quiet. Basics provided tea, coffee, hair dryer, t.v. Shower quite small also and water a little tricky to adjust at first but hot and plentiful. Full continental breakfast provided. Overall a pleasant budget accommodation within Westminster and easy walking distance...

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
