My wife and I were in Paris and were returning to the States through London. We were spending just one night in London and we chose the Belgravia because it was within walking distance to Victoria Station from where we could catch the train to Gatwick the next morning. The hotel was relatively cheap, but it was far from a good deal. We paid for a "suite", which meant the room included a bathroom, the smallest bathroom I have ever seen. When shaving in the morning I actually stood outside the bathroom and leaned in over the sink to give me room to move my arms. Most offensive was that the ceiling in the shower was totally mildew encrusted (or was it mold), most likely because the fan in the bath was caked with dust and grime and did not work, not allowing any ventilation. The entire room stunk from the mildew.
The bed was "multi-leveled" and must have been 50 years old, although the linens did appear to be fresh. When we went to the basement for our "Breakfast", which consisted of Kraft individually wrapped cheese slices, a loaf of wheat bread, and some mystery meat, we were not able to be served since the "breakfast room" only had three small tables, which were filled, and there was no where to sit. The couple running the place were young, polite and clueless. When I complained about the room I was told by the young manager that he had never been in that room and was not aware of the mold/mildew problem. I am not a fussy traveler, and have never written a bad review before, but I feel compelled to warn my fellow travelers to avoid this place like the Plague!!!!
