As other reviewers have already stated, the Z's proximity to Victoria Station can't be beat. However, I stayed two nights in a windowless room, which was beyond claustrophobic and not something I'd ever do again as it's impossible to tell if it's day or night (if you've seen the movie "Oldboy" you'll know exactly what I mean). The room itself was tiny, but immaculate and very zen, and the large flatscreen a posh touch. I did have a problem with the location of the electrical socket, which was too far from a mirror to for me to properly blow-dry my hair. And the lighting in the bathroom...ugh. (I've run into the same weird dilemma in several other London hotels--they clearly need to hire more women to design their rooms!) There's a pub next door and a Pret à Manger around the corner, but few other dining options in the immediate area, which isn't really an issue if the Tube is running, so keep your fingers crossed. The coffee and croissants and other breakfasty things the Z offers in the morning are a brilliant touch, and something to take back to one's room since the lobby area tends to get a bit crowded with people eating and watching TV. I would return to this hotel, but only for one night next time. It gets a bit much after that.
