“wonderful surprise”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

What a treasure! Walking distance to all kinds of transportation. This is lovely - converted 2 houses with the office in between - marvelous staff - everyone just wants to make you happy. They even stored some excess luggage for us between 2 stays while we were traveling to York and Edinburgh. Thoroughly professional and very personable. Walking distance to 2 grocery stores, wine shops, a lovely street fair 6 days/week, numerous restaurants. Our room was average for a European hotel (i.e., smaller than US hotels) but very efficient and very clean. Mary Ann at the front desk knows all the best and most efficient ways to get wherever you need to go. The walk from Victoria Station may seem a bit far the first time, but it isn't - plus there are great shops and restaurants along the way.

Room Tip: Give the staff your particulars and they will assign you a great room.

Great location, clean comfortable rooms and a fantastic staff. We had to cut our stay short but were greatly pleased with this location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. When we had to cut our vacation short they couldn't do enough to help us with the situation. We'd definitly stay with them again.

This hotel is in a really great location. 10 min walk to Victoria or Pimlico stations and Bus 24 stops right outside the hotel's front door. The rooms were clean. The shower was fantastic. The breakfast was fine, but a little early for later risers (7-8:30am). Everyone in the hotel was very nice - during check-in, check-out, and at breakfast. We requested a room with fewer stairs to climb, and were on the first floor landing which meant it got a little noisy when people were going down to breakfast or when the staff started cleaning the rooms. It's around the corner from a great pub - CASK - and there are several supermarkets right nearby. All in all, we were very pleased with this hotel and would stay here again.

Probably won't find a more centralized location for the price. Rooms are very small and noise from guests staying in adjoining rooms is easily heard. Service is great, and staff are very friendly. Would be nice if breakfast being served didn't end so early. All and all, good place to traveling on a budget.

This hotel is a short walk from the Pimlico tube station and close to all the major sites. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful.

From start to finish the hotel staff were extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble for them. Arrived 11am rooms were ready for us to leave all our luggage and off we went into Oxford Street. Hotel right across the road from main bus stop that would take u into all the big sightseeing areas. Rooms in hotel and public areas there were extremely clean + well maintained. Breakfast was good and very speedy service have to say tho would have liked the option of juice + cereal with breakfast rather than havin to choose which one. On the last day due to room checkout time being 10am staff once again were very helpful and allowed us to leave luggage behind reception all day so we cwd head off into town again and make the most of our last day. Overall a very enjoyable stay and will definitely be stayin in the luna and simone again very soon :-)

We've just returned from a most enjoyable weekend break a this super little hotel. The location couldn't be better, with the frequent 24 bus stopping right outside the front door and only a short walk to either Pimlico underground station or the Victoria transport hub. Couple all this to an extremely competitve B&B rate (we paid £110 per night) and very friendly staff (a welcome change from the usual London grumps) and you've got a location that ticks most of the boxes.

As others have mentioned, the rooms are very small and there is no lift. We requested, and were given, a quiet room on a high floor (the top floor as it happened) so we knew what to expect. We had an excellent view over the rooftops towards Westminster Abbey and the London Eye, but our elevated position meant that it took an age for the hot water to reach either the shower or wash hand basin - hot enough when it got there, but you needed patience. However, the quiet location away from the street, plus the very comfortable double bed, resulted in the best hotel sleep we have had for some time.

At first glance, the set breakfast menu looked quite restrictive but negotiation with the very helpful and friendly serving team resulted in other options (yoghurt, fresh fruit, flavoured teas) being made available. Extending the serving times beyond the 8:30 cut off would be a big improvement. With most tourist attractions not opening until 10:00, such an early breakfast inevitably means having time to kill before the day's itinerary can start in earnest, which is ok if the weather is fine and you enjoy a stroll down by the river, but a problem if this doesn't fit with your plans.

So, an excellent choice for a city break and almost, but not quite, 5 out of 5.
