We enjoyed our stay at the Lime Tree Hotel. We arrived before check in time and our room was ready so we were able to access it. The staff was welcoming and generally helpful. The location is literally around the corner from Victoria Coach station. We took the bus to and from Heathrow Airport at a cost of 12 pounds. We were also close to Victoria Tube and train station. We purchased the week pass for 30 pounds and we found it to be a great value.We always felt very safe in the area. (We often saw Bentleys and other fine cars parked in the area) Our room was #18 and it overlooked a little garden in the back of the hotel. It was very quiet. The room was very clean and very basic. The bed was comfortable. The linens were a little rough...I have to admit that I like fine bedding. The bathroom appeared to be new and it was immaculate. Our only complaint was the breakfast. We are Americans and we didn't find it appealing. There was a lovely little deli up the street, La Bottega, where we got delicious pastries and cappacino, lattes, and sandwiches. Overall, we felt this was a good value for London.
