I stayed at the Melbourne hotel for 3 nights and found it adequate for my trip. The room was cramped to say the least but I was advised of this when I made the booking. As I was the only guest and didn't plan on spending much time in the room i decided to go ahead with the booking. The...

Staff helpful and friendly. Location very convenient, within ten minutes from Victoria coach and train stations and right in the center of the city, near Buckingham Palace and Houses of Parliament. Room and common spaces very cleaned and looked after. Internet and tv in the room. Breakfast abundant.

The hotel staff was wonderful. The bed not so much. We wanted to experience the local way. We were told it was a double bed, well it was a British double bed not American. My wife ended up sleeping on the floor. The next time we go to London, we will stay in a more Americanize hotel.

First I can endorse all the positive comments, especially about cleanliness, location and convenience of the number 24 bus. My wife and I arrived tired after an overnight flight and with a serious luggage issue (a wrong one). The owner John went out of his way to help us by making some telephone calls which led to a solution in...

Melbourne House is perfectly located near Pimlico and Victoria Station, Bus 24 stopps almost in front of it. It might be hard to imagine in London, but at night it is as silent as the scottish highlands. Breakfast is incredible, especially hot chocolate. John, the proprietor, gives advice for where to change money, where to go for lunch and whatever...

Personnel had a good humour. Pimlico is a nice area and easy to reach. Nice...

Located on a relatively quiet street, this hotel was perfect for our needs. Only 15 minutes walk from Victoria station and even less from Pimlico underground station. Also about 25 minutes walk to Buckingham Palace. Although the room was a little on the small side it was adequate for us and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly,...

Comfy and well located, i highly recommend this hotel to the business class! The staff was friendly and the room well decorated, thanks a lot! I will surely come back. Just a little note about the bathroom that I think it could be a little more spacious but this was not a matter and i had a very nicr stay!

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.
