Although the room was clean and the staff was cordial, I cannot say anything else positive about our experience. The room was the smallest I've ever experienced. It was on the 4th floor and there was no lift, nor was any help offered carrying our luggage up. I could feel the individual springs through the old mattress. The lack of...

There are a few errors in this Review. The Hotel has only got 3 floors.We have also never advertised that we have a lift or air conditioning. As far as the theft is concerned, it was most unfortunate as it was carried out by an ex American army personnel who used his army background to break into rooms. We found...

Shame on you Expedia for allowing customers to book a room through you. This place was horrible! I thought that all I really needed was a clean room, warm bed and a place to shower, the Dover Hotle...uh....Hostel...was not it. How it received 2 stars is beyond me. The room was filthy, ripped curtains, water spots where the ceiling had...

We think that this reviewer has another axe to grind and is not telling the truth. We have been in Business for over 20 years, with a large percentage of repeat guests. We are inspected by the London Tourist Board every year and get a clean bill of health. Most of the other reviews justify our comments. If the review...

We booked and paid for this accommodation (non refundable) before we started using trip advisor and were very apprehensive after reading the comments. Overall we had no problems with this stay. The position was great. 5 minutes from the Victoria train station and an easy 20 minute walk to Westminster Bridge past some great pubs. The hotel provides 24 hour...

I stupidly tried to get the last train home to Brighton after my hen party in London one Friday night.... and of course missed it. I wandered around for about an hour, trying to find a National Express bus home, and then trying to find a hotel room for the night. The hotels around Victoria station were very expensive, most...

We stayed at the Dover Hotel in London for 5 nights in March 2008. Hotel was very clean. The room was small, but clean. It was always neatly made up with fresh towels each day when we returned. The beds were comfortable.The staff were friendly and accomodating. The front desk is manned all night. The location of the hotel is...

Dont expect 5 star, i mean it is only a bed and breakfast, and if your planning to visit all the sites in london, then all you need is somewhere to rest. Staff very...

After four nights in Paris, which was lovely, my wife and I took the Eurostar train to London. We had reservations booked through Expedia at the Dover.

This booking was made through Expedia. The booking was for a basic room, whch is obviously at a cheaper rate, than an ensuite room. The guest enquired whether we had an ensuite room and we told them the charge for upgrading ,which they accepted. Secondly we have never advertised anywhere that we have an elevator in the Hotel. I do...

The hotel website looks a lot nicer than how the rooms actually are. We were given a quad room but the room is really too small and the bathroom with the toilet has only standing room for one person. The only good thing is that it is close to Victoria station and easily accessible which was the primary reason why...

Have stayed twice now and although the rooms are small and beds not that comfortable it is very easy to find you way around from this hotel. We would probably stay again as we are only at the hotel for sleeping/breakfast and off out again the next day. I guess anything in London that has a largeish room is more...

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.
