Pestana Chelsea Bridge
Ranked #187 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2012

The Pestana, though across Chelsea Bridge and therefore just south of the river, is still very conveniently situated for the West End and is only 10 to 15 minutes from Victoria. It is very reasonably priced compared to similar quality more central hotel, is spotlessly clean, modern and has the added luxury of a small spa. My one complaint... the lighting in the bathrooms if you are a woman applying make-up is awful! Please hotel management, change them to a brighter white light!

Room Tip: if train noise bothers you, you might not want to be on the side facing Battersea Power Station, tho...

I stayed for a couple of nights at the end of June 2012 and really liked this hotel (especially by comparison with the Hilton Doubletree Victoria, where I'd stayed for the previous couple of nights). The room was large and very well furnished, the bathroom was great and the service was excellent. The only problem is the location - not so close to the tube - but there are nice views over the river from the higher floors, and it is right next to Battersea Park.

The rates (I think there are almost always good deals to be had) are great value. I paid considerably less than for a much smaller room (and much worse service) at the Hilton.

I would most definitely stay here again. The only slight gripe is charging for internet in the rooms, although I was given virtually unlimited access in the (lovely) lobby area, and I guess this may be the first step to making the whole hotel Free Wifi?

Room Tip: High floors have the best views.

I hadn't stayed in this part of London before but it's a great location and a particularly easy drive from the M4.

The hotel is very modern and a very attractive reception. Staff were more than helpful, luggage taken to our room with the minimum of fuss. We had an executive room, very spacious and a nice sitting area with a white leather sofa. Tea and coffee facilities with a basin next to it - much easier to fill the kettle and wash cups than using the bathroom. The bathroom itself was rather small but the shower cubicle was big and the shower itself very powerful. Toiletries were nice although could have been more of them. Amazingly, no box of tissues which to me is an essential. I queried this at reception and the girl gave me a few packs of tissues. Not a huge problem but slightly irritating.

The bed was beautiful, as we're the pillows. We had a good night's sleep in very quiet surroundings.

We were entitled to use the executive lounge which was a bit disappointing. We had breakfast there but it was minimal. Limited choice of cereals and the bread rolls were rather stale. No toast was offered but the lounge was spotless and bright. Good selection of newspapers.

My only real complaint about the Pestana was the 'gymnasium'. At best this could only be called a Fitness Room and that's being kind. Two treadmills, one bike and a rowing machine. There were weights there but the room was so small that if there were more than 2 people in there, you'd be hard pressed to find space. There is a spa and pool here which I didn't use but have heard good reports.

All in all, I enjoyed my stay here. We ate in the bar which was very good and the service was excellent. Bar staff very attentive and polite.

One tip for fellow travellers. I actually drove past the hotel as it's situated behind the Chelsea Bridge Wharf Appartments. It really needs a 'hotel' sign at the traffic lights. According to the staff, a few people have commented on this and I believe they are applying to the council.

I would definitely come back here. You can walk to the Houses of Parliament and we also went to Westminster Cathedral which was stunning. A very relaxing couple of days.

This hotel really does give excellent value if you shop around and/or use their price guarantee. The rooms and beds are very large especially for a central metropolis hotel. Note that the car parking charges are just £4 a day for Saturday and Sunday, £20 only for weekdays. So overall we support the reviews below. However, we found some design features that we thought were just plain irritating - and of course some things that the hotel cannot now change. An orange valance light serves no purpose, does it?; a strong blue/violet light in the shower room is there (we were told) 'because it's pretty' (blue light on skin is always unflattering, and it's Not been put there to make veins difficult to find for IV-using addicts as you may find in some urban public toilets, as there is regular lighting as well of course); the main shower room lights are in the ceiling and are inadequate for the mirror; the bedside lights have a very weak bulb in a chi-chi stand and an LED light on a flexitube that is too small for reading any book bigger than a Mr Man... our bed had a duvet with a cover made out of plasticized cotton, and there was no topsheet, so we had two rather sticky-feeling nights. I'm not usually so pernickety but these are the reasons that I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Only had one room - no issues with the location.

I stayed here with my wife prior to a flight to Bahrain from Heathrow. As she had driven up we needed a car park, which is not always available in many London hotels. However, at £20 per night, it is not cheap. However, the access back to Heathrow is simple and quick.
The hotel is difficult to spot, tucked behind the Chelsea Wharf apartments just across Chelsea Bridge on the south side.
Once inside though you realise you are in somewhere really special. It is new and well decorated and very clean. Rooms are very attractive and large and we stayed in an Executive Club room. Unfortunately the Club lounge was a disappointment - too small and not very welcoming - not worth the upgrade cost.
The gym was also a misnomer, more a room with 6 pieces of equipment. Surely with a pool and Spa they could make a better job than they have.
We dined in Sloane Sq on the first night, a quick taxi ride away. On the second night we had a bar meal which was excellent.
Apart from the above couple of niggles this was an excellent hotel and perfectly positioned.

I have stayed at this property several times over the last 3 years and my stays are alway faultless. Staff, food, rooms are amongst the best I have experienced at this price point. River views are also an experience.

Access to local amenities and acceptable access to transport hubs make this hotel one of my top 10 overall business locations.

Room Tip: You can always ask for river view, but overlooking Battersea Power Stn to rear of property are quiet...
