This hotel is situated in a great location with easy access to both Victoria and Pimlico stations. Fantastic value for money compared to similar hotels. The bedrooms are small and the breakfast adequate, however it was exceptionally clean and the beds were very comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the walls are paper thin so unless you bring... More

If you're looking to check out London on the cheap, you can't do much better than the Lidos Hotel. I emphasize "on the cheap". The hotel is excellently located, a 10 minute walk from Victoria Station. In fact, if you're willing to walk two or three miles, you can walk most of the best attractions in London. Rooms are inexpensive,... More

The room was small, but the description online stated so. 24 hour desk. Continental breakfast from 7-9am...I arrived exactly at 7am one morning and it was all set up and ready. Room was clean,...

Searching for the perfect, intimate B & B can be difficult, especially a challenge when you are visiting a foreign country. I relied heavily on the Trip Advisor reviews.

I chose this hotel based on it's location and didn't disappointed. There are two underground stations nearby and bus #24 stops right outside which was very convenient. The room was a bit small, which is to be expected, but very clean. Not the quietest location but this was due to our window being open as it was a bit hot... More

I selected this hotel based on location and price, with full knowledge that when I book a single room, I just may get the worst room in the hotel. Check-in staff were wonderful. Engaging and helpful. Highly recommended. My room was beside the elevator, in fact, wraps around the side and back of it. Room for a bed, two shelves... More

This hotel is one the of the best priced hotels near Victoria Station. We decided on this hotel because the Victoria line provides a direct train to Gatwick airport (30 minutes) so it was easy to get back home after our vacation. The rooms are just that, a room. The bathroom is all new and has great water pressure. The... 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.
