Excellent location as a base for exploring central London. Basic accommodation, but dry, warm and quite clean (well, apart from the carpets). Don't expect luxury at this price but well worth considering if, like me, you are appalled by London hotel prices. Apparently it was built as the Victoria Hotel and was the first hotel visited by a member of...

This beautiful building is just off Trafalgar Square, so a fantastic location to explore London from. If you like luxury hotels then this is not for you, but if you like clean, comfortable, friendly and value for money accommodation you should give this a try.

Just off Trafalgar square, the location of this simple and clean property can't be any better... The rooms are VERY basic and it does feel like a college dormitory: cheap furnishings and so-so beds... but who cares? It's very cheap for the location, there a clean towels and sheets provided, in a secure building. For the price, I would definitely...

Excellent location and very helpful staff. Beds comfortable, room fine though bathroom very small. Wouldn't want to stay around property, obviously not comfortable hotel, but I expect most people want what we wanted -a convenient base. It's location is excellent, and despite this generally very quiet there. Am planning to go again in the future

A simple good sized room, in an amazing central location. A two minute walk from Trafalgar square, staff where always helpful and friendly, right across the road from a good pub selling real ales. The room was very quiet never heard any of the other guests during our stay. Washing facilities more than adequate. Reason why we only gave 4...

Spent two nights here last week whilst on a birthday trip to London and found it absolutely fine. Of course with it being student accommodation, the rooms were bare and the bathroom was a wet room. The downside to this was if someone had a shower, the whole pod was soaked. Also with me being tall I found it difficult...

tIf you don't need all the bells and whistles of a 5 star hotel, but want a supreme location, this place is for you. At least it was for us! We booked a room here August 11-13, 2012, so we could catch the Olympic men's marathon. It was a last minute trip, from Germany, and was well worth it. The...

The building is part of the London School of Economics dorm complex. The rooms are basic but clean. On the upside: - Location is terrific (next to trafalgar square) - Plenty of shops, restaurant, supermarkets - Walking distance to most of the tourists' sites - Helpful staff at the entrance (I think they are students) - Cleaning every day (although...

Stayed one night and found the venue central and easy to find. Odd entrance arrangement with me and all successive guests confused by requirements - must push the button on the pedestal in the street and when the speaker beeps and the light flashes, then take the few steps forward to the door and pull door handle to find which...

Sorry to have to say this, but this accommodation was a dissapointment. We paid £90 ($140) in advance for a double ensuite. The bathroom is as small as possible. When you sit on the WC your feet are in the shower - I'm not joking! There was no TV and the TV in the lounge was out of order. There...

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
