Victoria Station-Area Hotel?

Any suggestions for lodging around Victoria Station in London? Just looking for a clean, quiet place for a one-night stay. New England Hotel a nice place? Georgian House Hotel? Thanks for your comments/suggestions.

I stayed at the Ebury House on Ebury Street which is in the Moravia District of London. The b&b is around the corner from Victoria Coach Station, and within walking distance of Buckingham Palace. This b&b is highly recommended in the Frommer's Guide to London. I've stayed here twice and been very happy with the accommodations and service.

Tophams Belgravia on Ebury St. is also a good place to stay. Right around the corner from Victoria Station with excellent restaurant and good service.

I made an error, should have said Belgravia not Moravia. Ok, I'm off to crawl into bed.

tally ho, I stayed at that same hotel years ago and loved it. There were no chairs in the lobby to keep away the loiters and the staff very friendly. I'd like to know also, it was very inexpensive at that time. It was called The Grovsner(sp?)

Topham Belgravia Hotel. We were pleased with the accommodation. The restaurant was excellent.

Topham Belgravia Hotel. I second this. The public rooms are charming, particularly the breakfast room. The bedrooms were sweet and clean. The staff was friendly.
28 Ebury Street, phone 7730 8147. In August, double or twin, without en-suite, 110 pounds or 154 dollars. Otherwise, from 130 pounds or 182 dollars.

Westminster House Hotel. My husband and I just returned (last week) from a fantastic 5 day London trip. A B&B (really a small hotel). Just about $100 or 72 pounds per night with full breakfast. Clean, quiet, with private WC and shower. Mr. and Mrs. Jones (proprietors) and their three daughters were nice. Walk to either Victoria or Sloane Square tube stop (we preferred the latter, as it took us right through our lovely neighborhood, Belgravia -- Mrs. Thatcher lives on the square behind, according to our host!). We would return - lodging is so expensive in central London and this was good value. 96 Ebury Street, phone 7730 4302.
Twin or double room with breakfast: standard 70 pounds or 98 dollars, en suite 80 pounds or 112 dollars.

Woodville House Hotel. nice: in Rick Steves' book

Woodville House Hotel. I believe the price was under $100 US, but I do not have it listed in my journal - it is probably listed in Rick Steves book. The room did not have toilet or shower, there was one on each landing. It did include a typical English breakfast - more food than we ever ate at breakfast but then we saved money on lunch! The owners were extremely helpful.
107 Ebury Street, phone 7730-1048, fax 7730-2574. Double or twin room with breakfast, and showers down the corridor, 62 pounds or 87 dollars.

Along Ebury Street from north to south.
28 Ebury Court, 28 Topham Belgravia. 50 Harcourt House, 64 Chesham House, 96 Westminster House, 102 Ebury House, 104 Collin House,
107 Woodville House, 108 James House, 110 Astors, 129 Cartref, 137 Limetree.

Travel Inn County Hall. £62.95
Royal Adelphi Hotel. From £45 or 80 inc breakfast
Strand Palace Hotel. £159 to 199
Also at discount £57 any date in August
and £66 Fridays to Sundays all year
Discounts also on
and on
Many rooms are small, but not all, so it is good to ask
the room size before you book.
Charing Cross Thistle Hotel. £190 to 255
Waldorf Meridien. £210 to 495
Also at discount £165 any date in August
and £176 Fridays to Saturdays all year
Savoy Hotel. £265 to 1190.

Harcourt House Hotel. Do not stay there. I stayed there a couple of years ago and it was awful. (5 nights there - I still can't believe we didn't just leave and go someplace else). 50 Ebury Street, phone 7730 2722, fax 7730 3998.

Holly House Hotel. reasonably priced and the rooms are okay. Nothing fancy but we only wanted a place to lay our weary heads at the end of the day. We got a 5-person ensuite family room for only 90 pounds, including a continental breakfast. reasonable. 20 Hugh Street, SW1 WOLU, phone 7834 5671, fax 7233 5154. 0870 333 9120. Twin or Double Room: Basic 40 pounds, en-suite 50 pounds.

Limetree Hotel. I read about it on the Rick Steves board. The owner is delightful, our room was small, but cheerfully appointed, we had a stall shower, the area is quiet at night and has a pleasant boho feel to it, and an English breakfast is served. It was a little under 71 pounds or $100 a night. Most of the other guests were repeat customers, too.

Limetree Hotel. I stayed there two years ago and really enjoyed it. I booked one of the smaller rooms (only in London for two nights). It was cheerfully decorated in floral prints, had a stall shower, no bath, bring your own soap, big closet, and a desk. Breakfast was the traditional English breakfast and Dave and his wife and the staff were friendly and helpful. Compared to other dreary and threadbare places I've stayed in London, the Lime Tree was a welcome change. 137 Ebury Street, phone 7730 8191, fax 7730 7865. 75 to 115 pounds or 105 to 157 dollars a room.

Quality Inns, I think. I stayed recently. We decided that time to save money. Big mistake. It was not pleasant. The sort of place one questions the wisdom of taking off one's shoes. I think it was on Belgrave Road. Not in the telephone directory.

The Quality Hotel about 3 blocks from Victoria at your price. I stayed recently at I can't say it had atmosphere--just a hotel. I walked down Ebury Street --you'll find lots of postings about it--and it seemed like a good street of hotels in old houses. It starts about 2 blocks from the station so the distance would depend how far down your choice was.

Rubens Hotel. We went with a sort of "family" outing and got three rooms there. They weren't near each other, but given the dynamics of travel, that was perhaps for the best. All age ranges--seniors, boomers, and teen--enjoyed the Rubens.

Rubens Hotel. My Mom stayed there and loved it - nice rooms etc.

Rubens Hotel. I highly recommend it. It is literally across the street from parts of Buckingham Palace. We stayed there twice, and liked it quite a lot. The first time we had a huge breakfast buffet option, and the second time, for unknown reasons, only a "continental" buffet, but both were good. We liked its smaller size and comfortable lobby.
Buckingham Palace Road, phone 7834 6600.

Stayed at the Westminster House Hotel in Nov 2001 and it was a dump. We checked out the next day. The shower was totally covered with green mold. If this is anyone's idea of a nice place to stay for $100 they had better look around. We went to the 4 star Holiday Inn Victoria and got a wonderful room for 99 pounds with a fabulous buffet breakfast.
