Like namesake Tony, the Tudor Blair Inn is not to everyone's tastes... If you like grime, disappointment and bad watercolours, this place might be the one for you.

 Upon arrival, guests are treated not to a key, but to a small, brown (a recurring theme at the hotel), plastic card which is apparently "ever so simple" to use. It's not. It's a bit crap. Not a man to be deterred by the failings of a brown plastic key, I entered the room after traipsing up several dank staircases to be met by a sight as depressing as a sandwich dropped in a puddle. A sagging bed, cramped furniture (brown, inevitably) and a television cruelly stolen from its true home in an electronics museum... The TV had been considerately positioned pointing high towards the ceiling - great if you're a giraffe, less good if you're not. 

A cup of tea would solve everything, and luckily a kettle was provided... Less lucky was the penis drawn on the mirror that was revealed as the water boiled beneath it. Still, at least the powdered whitener for the tea did enough to (almost) put me out of my misery. 

Call me a traditionalist, but I like to come out of the shower cleaner than when I entered... The shower curtain (held up by a few re-used paper clips) was probably quite nice when it was new, but it looked less good after its apparent use as back-up toilet roll. The bathroom was big enough to crouch down very tightly in, and the opportunity to wash my hair whilst also standing at the toilet was a novelty I'll remember for a long time.

I asked if breakfast was served and what a fine rendition of a morning at a concentration camp the Blair Tudor offered. A slice or two of rank bread, accompanied by the mournful gazes of other souls remembering with sadness the money lost on this dingy hole.

This hotel did have some redeeming features, namely a vast selection of tourist guides. It was nice to see the owners were aware that visitors would need plenty to do to keep them away from the Auschwitz of South London.

If you like pink (stained) walls, repeated disappointment and a penis on a mirror, then head to London's finest hotel named after a former prime minister called Tony.

I booked this hotel in a good price, and this way I can say that it worth, but otherwise it is very poor quality. The location is fine, appr. 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station. We stayed in Tudor Inn, just the opposite side of Blair Victoria, which is run by Indian family. The room actually not bad, fine for 1-2-3 nights maximum! As the other reviews say there is a box of bathroom in the room, even one person can hardly fit there for having a shower. Otherwise they cleaned the room, made the bed every day, and got fresh towels day by day. Regarding the breakfast, DO NOT EVEN TRY! No free places in the morning, the orange juice was totally vapid and rotten, I thing they have not changed the juice in the machine for days!!!!
Not terrible, but consider the price before you book!

Room Tip: I think that in Blair Victoria rooms are better than in Tudor Inn

This hotel is awful. We stayed on the 3rd floor of the Tudor Inn, there is no lift! We paid extra for an ensuite, the hot water didn't work an when I spoke to reception I was told just to run it as we are on the top floor, it still didn't work. I would advise everyone to keep away from this hotel, it's dirty and smelly. I know the price is cheap but you do expect a hotel to be clean and have running hot water.

Stayed here last night with a friend as we had a works xmas party in Battersea Park, the hotel was cheap and needs work but what do you expect for £60 a night close to Victoria Station, it had a bed, TV, Ensuite with hot water, even had a small balcony, i have stayed in worst places in london on a drunken work party and this place is a palace compared to The Chealsea Guest House

Room Tip: Not for the tourist but for a place to lay your head after a drunken night, Perfect

The room was not clean, the taps in the bathroom were practically falling off if you as much as turned them on. The place is noisy you can hear every thing worst of all is the constant sound of people running up and down the stairs and this was even at 3 o clock in the morning constant noise. The staff weren't friendly either they were quite rude. The value factor for the room was way to dear for the state the room was in will never stay there again.
