More about Best Western Victoria Palace
perfect location,not expensive!
I travelled to London with 4 friends for a girlie weekend at the end of feb 2007. I picked this hotel after many hours of research on tripadvisor because it was inexpensive,central,near to victoria station which has an express train from gatwick airport,and had triple rooms available. We got 2 rooms for 3 nights for 450GBP which worked out very reasonable. The hotel has recently changed its name from the hamilton house hotel to the best western victoria palace hotel.excellent location,near to metro,very safe area,taxis always available outside hotel at night.
rooms are spotlessly clean,warm with air conditioning/heating,tea coffee facilities/beautiful bathroom with shower.breakfast excellent and served til 9.30am.staff very friendly.couldnt really fault the hotel on anything,would recommend it to anyone!
dungeon like room
Stayed Oct 2006. Reception staff were friendly but room, like a lot, was below pavement level,very small, noisy,and of course very little daylight.
Was also very hot and could not adjust the heating.
It is very handily located to station but for the money would have expected a better room.
My family just returned from 2 nights at the Hamilton House Hotel. We had 2 rooms, the pros and cons are as follows:
Clean and Spacious (double room ((#603)), twin ((#302)) was smaller)
Very reasonably priced
Hot breakfast included
Easy walk to Victoria Station
Plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby
Building work going on, drilling started at about 9:00
Double room on the same level as the breakfast room and the elevator was just outside the door, so you wake up when breakfast starts at 7:30.
Overall a very pleasant experience. There's a nice pub just across the street for an after-theatre pint!
I had a enjoyable time, the room was on the third floor, clean and not noisy at all.
The hotel is very clean, new and the room had a big tv :D
I appreciated the fact that there's an internet connection free for guests in the hall since internet cafè are pretty expensive there.
The neighborhood is fine, quiet and full of pubs, cafes and shops.
Victoria station is at 3 minutes walk.
Excellent friendly and helpfull staff, awesome location, room more then excellent, clean, cosy, very safe, wonderfull breakfast, made our visit to London really a pleasant one.
Would definatelly recommend this hotel to everyone.
Great for being London
Considering I during the years have had my worst hotel experiences ever in London I had very low expectations when arriving at Hamilton House with my husband and kids. But for ONCE I got pleasently surprised. We had booked the apartment two doors down from the main hotel, and I was relieved to find it had clean beds, a real bathroom (NOT a shower cabin stuck in the room on the wall to wall carpeting...) with a tub, clean floors, central heating (yey!), microwave, oven, fridge, miniature tv... everything in working order. No luxury, certainly, but for London at app. 120 pounds per night - this was perfect. And - above all: it was CLEAN! Maid service every day, complimentary breakfast, great location 5 mins. stroll from Victoria and nice restaurants in the area. I will definately bookmark this hotel and return here.
Time Travel Back To The 1970's!
This hotel has recently been taken over & is now called "Best Western
Victoria Place". We decided to book into one of their self ontained
"apartments" which is a few doors down.
I use the term "apartment" loosely. It was more like a dingy bedsit.
I thought I had done a "Sam Tyler - Life On Mars" & woken up in 1973! We should have seen what was coming when we opened the door only to be met by a rush of heat (the central heating had been left on top temperature). The main enterance lightbulb was also broken (which staff promised to change but didn't). The living area
consisted of a kitchen (with a broken fridge), cooker, microwave, a very old settee & a single bed shoved in the corner. The antique portable TV complete with wire arial sellotaped to the wall barely picked up grainy images of terrestrial TV.
The bath had the strangest tap combination I have ever seen. Someone had glued a cheap shower hose to the taps & then screwed the head onto the sloping ceiling above. This made it completely useless as a shower as it was far too low to stand up, & very slow when trying to fill the bath.
The walls were paper thin to the point where we could hear everything our upstairs neighbours were doing, including all of their toilet visits!
Having said all of this, suprisingly it was clean, & the bedroom & bed was pleasant. The staff were also very polite & helpful. I just hope that now it has been taken over the new owners put some investement into updating it.
Great nights sleep - Great Location - Great Price
This is a great little hotel - not far from Victoria Station - Buckingham palace is a nice easy stroll away.
It's not fancy schmancy and the room was TINY - but for the price and location - it was perfection. The bed was a little too hard for my taste, but it was so quiet at night! I am an extremely light sleeper and our room was right above the main street, and I had no problem sleeping. There is also a computer with internet access in the lobby.
An extra little tip: There is a great Indian Restaurant right around the corner - very inexpensive and very good - Paradise Indian Restaurant: 5 Denbigh St. Ask the reception for directions.
really comfortable and clean hotel.
the rooms and the bathrooms are quite spacious.
the receptions has been very kind and there is also the luggage deposit .
excellent position near to Victoria Station.
