I travelled to London couple of times and stayed in different hotels in victoria but out of all I really enjoyed and loved staying in Melbourne house hotel. It is the most cleanly place that you cant even find a spot. Staff are extremely friendly that they make you feel like home. The location of the hotel is a so perfect that it has some nice cafes and restaurants nearby and it is closest to both pimlico and Victoria stations. The best part is you can even get an additional discount if you book directly with them rather than using different booking sites. Now if i need to travel to London for my work i don’t need to worry because now because i know it was just a home away from another home. Thanks to John and Manuela for this experience.

Staff were super friendly on arrival and throughout my one night stay. My room was on the top floor (room 15) with a fantastic view over the rooftops to Westminster. Hard work lugging my bag up the 5? 6? storeys with no lift; if I'd had a heavier suitcase I wouldn't have managed it. Room 15 was also quite noisy; could hear neighbours clearly through walls, and the pump for showers was nearby and very noisy. Not a good night's sleep (ear plugs might have helped if I had any). Bed was small but comfortable, with a light duvet and blanket. Shower was excellent - powerful and hot. No breakfast served any more, but staff recommended some great coffee shops nearby (one of which offered a discount). Overall, I would go back to the Melbourne House when looking for a great location at a reasonable (for London) price, though next time I would bring ear plugs ;)

Family of four stayed here in January 2020. Hotel was conveniently located near Victoria station and Pimlico underground. Easy walk to Westminister, Buckingham Palace, and many great sights. Hotel itself was nice and staff were friendly. Rooms are reasonable but somewhat basic but the price reflected this and was good value for central london

The Melbourne House is an easy walk with carry-on baggage from Victoria Station (rail service from/to Gatwick). A double room is clean, snug and comfortable with an attached bath. A generous breakfast is offered daily. The hosts are helpful and gracious beyond words. The Pimlico neighborhood is quiet and uncrowded, with bus, tube and taxi service readily available. Pack light; the Melbourne has no elevator. For that reason I am forced by trip advisor’s inflexible rating system to give the Melbourne a 4 out of 5 rating. With an elevator I would the Melbourne a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-5.

The double ensuite was comfortable and spotless. John, the owner, is very friendly and Nikita, the receptionist, very helpful and attentive.

Both did their utmost to help and ensure a comfortable stay, with restaurant recommendations and advice on booking reduced theatre tickets.

The location of the hotel is excellent with the Victoria and Pimlico Tube Stations a short walk away. Also, the musicals Hamilton and Wicked are a short walk away.

I wouldn't hesitate to use the Melbourne again as a base.

A really nice Hotel in a great area with really friendly staff who took great care of us. At breakfast, they greeted everyone with the same friendliness and even latecomers were welcomed with the same positive attitude and all food available.

We had a nice room on the third floor. It’s an old house, so you might hear other guests from time to time, but it didn’t bother us.

We would happily come again.

Stayed in a room for 4 with a queen and 2 twin beds, and the beds were nicely separated by a wall (no door)- a great arrangement for a family! Not a fancy or modern chain hotel, but very clean and well kept. Nice amenities including a fan to circulate air and electric kettle. Small but normal for the area, very smart space saving closets and shelves. Nice, functional bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff, secure double key entry. Our room was on the entry floor but not ground level near the windows. Felt very safe in this nice neighborhood. Slight musty smell but easy to air out the room. 2 blocks to the Pimlico tube station, can also walk to Victoria Station if needed. Great location for a home base when visiting the city. We wish we would have stayed here for our whole time in London!

I was there as a solo traveller. Firstly was warmly greeted by owner, John.
The room was very comfortable with a nice big bed.
It was cleaned daily which was great (unlike US hotels, even 4 stars, that clean once a week if requested, even in 4 star hotels).
The location was good. It was a good experience overall and i will be back.

Great location, 9 minute's walk from Victoria Station and close to Pimlico Tube. The Hotel was very clean which is the main reason for marking this highly. The room we stayed in was small but was more than adequate for our one nights stay I am sure not all the rooms are as small but we did book late and therefore limited choice of room. One thing to consider when looking for the Hotel there are 3 number 79 Belgrave Road so took 3 attempts to find it.

We went on a family trip to London and had two rooms in this hotel. Price was good, clean, good service, kind and efficient staff and good breakfast. Good location close to bus and tube, a 8-10 minute walk to the Victoria Station. Several restaurants in the immediate area. All over a good stay without luxury.

Hi. We stayed in a room with 3 twin beds and we had our own bathroom. It was a good place to stay, especially for the price.

As far as I know the hotel just has shower rather than bathrooms. It was pretty clean when I stayed. Easy and safe walk to Victoria station. I'm not a smoker, but I think you would be confined to the street as the hotel faces straight onto the street. That is going to be common with such hotels.

Hello!l have been there since Saturday!lt's a fantastic hotel,near the centre(about 15 minutes on foot from Buckingum Palace).l don't know if it has rooms for 4 people,you should ask them for it. When you book for the rooms,you have to write in the box that you whant the room with the private bathroom(there are also rooms with the bathroom in common with other rooms and it's cheaper). The breakfast is included in price.every day they give you: tea,milk,orange juice,water, kellogs,brioches,bread,toast,muffin,cheese,ham,sausages,marmelades and nutella. The best way to book them is by their site on internet,but we have known it later,so we booked by Booking. l hope to have been huseful for you! Bye bye! Jessica :-)
