      Nice hotel, quiet street

      We stayed in the Best Western Corona overnight just for the one night in November 2007. We booked the room using Aeroplan points so didn't pay a cent extra. We booked a room that turned out to be twin but contacting the hotel, it was changed to a double with no problems and when we checked in, we seem to have been upgraded to a family room, Queen bed and a single which we didn't need but it made for a much larger room. The bathroom was large as well with a very good shower. Decor was bright and cheerful, it looked like a recent refurbishment.

      The hotel is around the corner from the Pimlico tube station which is on the Victoria Line, one stop from Victoria station. Bus 24 stops nearly outside and that will take you up through Westminster to Trafalgar Square, Tottenham Court Road and up into Camden if you like. It's also a night bus route so it's handy for getting back to the hotel late.

      Room had a tv, coffee maker, closet, all the usual amenities. Breakfast was continental in a functional breakfast room. I believe there are business facilities as well. I think the hotel's usual price for a twin/double is not unreasonable for London, approx. 100 pounds. The building is a converted Victorian house on a road where there are quite a few hotels in the similar houses. Neighbourhood seemed fairly quiet, as well.

      Best budget hotel we've stayed at

      from

      we were impressed with the place. room was small, but clean, staff pleasant & helpful, breakfast reasonable too

      Our room smelled as though there was a dead rat in it.

      from

      When we checked into the very small room 406 there was a VERY nasty smell. Although the hotel initially denied knowledge of this, they had a plug in air freshener turned up high to try to combat the stench. We were informed there were no other rooms available within the whole of the Best Western group in London, and as we had prepaid we were stuck there! Although the housekeeper visited the room and agreed there was an awful smell, nothing was done to investigate, instead we were given ANOTHER airfreshener. The breakfast was awful and I will never stay there again.

      Not my favorite

      from

      I stayed here one night before I flew home from Gatwick on July 22 and I will not be staying here in the future. The room is nicely decorated and the bathroom was nice, but there was no AC or fan at least and it got very hot in the room. It was only about 70 degrees in London on the day I was there but the room faced the sun and felt like an oven. We had to leave the window open at night and the traffic on Belgrave road does not slow down that much. We also requested a Non-smoking room and were given a smoking room. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice, but I did not like the neighborhood that much. I think the Bloomsbury area is nicer, safer and more centrally located to everything.

      Yickes! We prepaid and moved out fast!

      from

      We stayed here some time ago but beleive that this is certainly a terrorist training camp. It was pushed as "family oriented"--absolutely not MY family. The room was stuffed with unneed furniture that we stumbled over; the bathroom was teensy; and the "breakfast" scared me. We moved to the Holiday Inn after the second night and we were pre-paid for a week.

      Funny funny

      from

      Was at this hotel 4 days traveling the Cure shows in 1996. You had to leave your key at the front desk upon leaving for the day, so when we came back they said they didn't have it, that we lost it. So we would have to break into our room each night! The housekeeping would barge in every morning, even with us yelling "GO AWAY!". Once, my girlfriend was in the shower and they tried to go in and clean the bathroom. Looking back, that was such a fun time, but I'd never stay there again. There is a really great pub just up the road, though. Can't remember the name of it, even though I was in there all 4 days.

      Very enjoyable visit

      from

      muust take exception to your patron from dundee. stayed 8 days in aug 2002. always a smiling face at reception. entire staff very helpful.

      would have preferred english breakfast but the continental was excellent. the coffee was good which we have not found to be true in other visits to london. lovely room and always clean and tidy. a great place to celebrate our 50th anniversary. many thanks.

      Petit but functional

      from

      The room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Although the room was on the small side, the shower was powerfull and certainly woke you up. The staff were quite helpfull but the breakfast could have been better than the basic continental fare on offer. The location was not brilliant but there is a tube station about a quater of a mile away.

      However it would be hotel I would stay at again. Value for money.

      Naff is not the word for this place

      from

      Staff were very unhelpful.. the breakfast included was rubbish.. listed as having air conditioning, this was not the case.. What a load of tripe.......

      Comfortable in the Corona

      from

      My wife, 12 year old daughter and I enjoyed our short stay at the Best Western Corona from Oct 8-12th. We received a reduced rate due to having booked online about 3 months early. We occupied a room with 2 double beds, with enough space to move around and the toilet facilities were modern and clean. The hotel has been recently renovated in typical Best Western franchise decor but service was good to superior.

Strapped into what I hoped to God was a safe contraption, holding onto my friend for dear life. That was before it started.  Then it started.  I held on with every limb I could find and I think I cried. It went up and down and up and down and my insides were thrown everywhere.  After a while I began to enjoy it...when it wasn't throwing ...

Our hotel is called Inn Plaza, it is very strange where you have the toilet in the hallway outside your room!!! We are now at an Italian restaurant where we are going to be having.... CHICKEN PARMIGANA!!!!!! Finally I have my parmy back so let's hope it good. An early night for us but sleep in tomorrow.

There were huge crowds gathered to watch the soldiers, accompanied by police and other soldier types playing bagpipes and clarinets, march through the streets by the palace to change the guard. There is so much tradition and ceremony to things here, and it's even more amazing that they go to this effort when the Queen isn't even there like today. Trafalgar Square was the next stop, and my ...
