Came to London for eight nights to really experience the city, since my first visit was purely for work. Been shopping around for hotels and came across the hotel's website. Contacted the management for certain inquiries about their services and proximity to some areas. Response, turnaround time and rates were great, and before I knew it, this was the Hotel...

I needed an hotel near Victoria Station for one night & through internet decided on the Windermere particularly as it had a 'bistro' restaurant - being on my own & not wanting to dine outside. My room was spotless & charming but the bathroom very small which I mentioned on departure. Unexpectedly, I had to overnight yet again on my...

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.
