We needed a hotel in the Victoria area for a night and were hard pushed to find anything in a decent price bracket. In the end we went for Z hotels Victoria and decided to ‘treat’ ourselves to a windowless Queen room for £170.
The location of the hotel is excellent, steps away from Victoria and therefore the rest of London. If you’re driving (like we were) then parking isn’t easy, but Victoria does benefit from being just outside the Congestion Zone and we parked in the hotel’s recommended car park. At £23.50 for 24 hours we didn’t think that was too bad, although it is a good five minutes walk from the hotel.
The reception, come café-bar-restaurant is compact, but very pleasant. We were given a room on the ground floor and informed that between 5 and 8pm there was a complimentary Cheese and Wine buffet for guests. Nice touch.
Our room was tiny (and remember we’d booked a Queen), but we were prepared for that. This hotel would not be suitable if you travel with a lot of luggage. The lack of a window didn’t worry me given that we weren’t planning to do anything other than change and sleep.
The bed was comfortable and room had everything we needed. We didn’t switch on the television but it looked a good size. The bathroom had a decent walk-in shower, but the area with toilet and basin is definitely only suitable for one person at a time. Given the frosted glass between bathroom and bed, you need to be comfortable with the person you are sharing with and it doesn’t leave much to the imagination.
We didn’t have breakfast, but the spread looked good. There are plenty of places nearby to eat so you’ll not go hungry if you decide not to eat at the hotel.
We would stay here again, but the lack of space, no window and cost would possibly keep us away. But if you’re after a room for the night near Victoria, have hand baggage only and can get a rate around £100 I’d say you’ve got yourself a very good deal.
Note – Try to avoid the ground floor as you can hear the Tube rattling along quite loudly.
