Nice hotel, not luxurious but clean, enough confortable, very next to London centre, very kind receptionists. You can go by walking everywhere. I suggest to stay here. We have been there with our daughter during March.

The hotel felt very cramped. The window didn't lock and the door could only be secured with a chain, not locked. The noise from people walking in the room above and up the stairs was very loud and the room was also extremely hot.

As for the chain or lock on the door, from the Health & Safety pespective, we have been recommended to use the chain only.

Great location, room small but very clean and tidy, rooms recently renovated, breakfast is average, but you can't really expect nothing luxurious for that money. Overall, very positive experience, would recommend!

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!...

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...

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.
