Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn London - Victoria
I picked this hotel for its location walking distance to services and coach station) but will not stay there again. I know London is a busy place but I had a room on the ground floor and it was very noisy with traffic and people going past all night, shower luke warm and the room had a pungent odour.
The receptionist was more interested in watching Childrens TV on our arrival than the meet and greet you expect.
A very basic breakfast of vending machine coffee, cereal, toast and hard boiled eggs. Maybe danish pastries or croissants are something for the future.
I think this was a case of you get what you pay for!
Very Convenient to Victoria Station
I stayed in the Comfort Inn Victoria before flying out the next day. The hotel is convenient to Victoria station and the Gatwick Express train.
The experience is about like a Comfort Inn in the US, but the rooms are smaller. The decor is modern, but perhaps a little too bright and contemporary. I had a large bathroom. The room was clean, but small. As is the case with other London hotels, the hallways and doorways are narrow, and this makes hauling large luggage a little problematic.
They serve an expanded continental breakfast in the morning.
There are many other hotels a bit further down Belgrave. We priced one at 85 GBP that did look more upscale. The rate at the Comfort Inn was 85, but we managed to negotiate a price of 75 GBP. The front desk will discount the room if the hotel is not full.
We stayed here for two nights in November 04. We found the hotel to be perfect for our needs. It is very close to Victoria Station and within easy walking distance to Buckingham Palace, The Houses of Paliament, The London Eye.
Rooms were very clean and linen and towels were changed daily. the bathroom was larger than average and the shower was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfasts consists of fruit salad, yoghurt, toast and hard boiled eggs together with tea, coffee and fruit juice.
We enjoyed our stay and at the time of online booking we made sure that we asked for a room in the quiet part of the hotel (at the rear) due to it being on a busy main road, we also requested a non smoking room after reading a previous review about a smelly room! All of our requests were granted and our room was not smelly!
I would use this hotel again...hope this helps!
Ideal location but smelly room !
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in August 2004.
Location of the hotel is ideal, a few minutes from Victoria station with access to all transports.
But the room we got was very small, SMELLY and probably very hot when the weather is hot (which was not the case).
Can find a better place for this price.
A lovely hotel that is very clean!
We stayed in this hotel in August 2004 and we were very impressed by the standard of cleanliness. The room is small but has a fan installed so can be kept cool. The bathroom is of a nice size and is very clean. The breakfast was nice and the staff were helpful. It is in a brilliant location for all of the sights around central london. The only problem is parking if travelling by car but there is a multistorey car park nearby and the hotel offers 25% discount off the cost which is good.
Great location - I'd stay here again
Great location! We arrived Stanstead airport and took a non-stop bus to Victoria station. The hotel is about 100 meters from the station. You can walk to Buckham Palace in 15 minutes and catch the tube everywhere. The hotel room was SMALL but very clean, breakast okay, cost is normal for London. We paid 75 pounds for a double. I would stay here again.
I stayed in this hotel in June 2004. This hotel is great in terms of its location (right across from Victoria, a major station in London), attractions, etc.
Staff was pretty helpful when we had any questions.
Breakfast offerred by the hotel was nice.
Rooms are certainly smaller that rooms in US but that is expected in Central London.
The best thing about this hotel is its location (it's close to Buckingham Palace). The bathroom was surprisingly big (for London), and unlike other hotels, there's no problems with the water pressure. The rooms themselves however are extremely small. During our visit in June, the weather in London was 90 degrees and humid, and the rooms had no A/C which made it very uncomfortable to sleep through. The free breakfast was a plus and my wife and two children enjoyed the food.
Great Value, Hot clean showers
My wife, daughter and I spent three nights here during the end of October 2003. This place is at a great location just behind the Victoria Train Station near all London sights.Best of all, it is clean, the showers are HOT!! and modern - great water pressure too! Argueably, the best American style showers in Europe.Also, there is a great pub on the corner across the street which serves the best fish and chips on the island - but don't go there on a Friday night, they don't serve food and the place is packed like a can of sardines.The staff here is friendly and helpful. This is truely one London accommodation you will be happy you found. CheeriO and a Toodle pip.
The Comfort Inn at Victoria Station
We just spent a week in London and stayed at the Comfort Inn on Belgrave Rd., just a half block away from Victoria Station. The hotel was just great and the price just right at 60 GBP for a twin room per night. The location couldn't have been better for a central place in London. The room ensuite looked as though it had been newly renovated.
The bathroom facilities looked new as well. The room was clean. The one we had was toward the back of the hotel so that we heard no street noises at night. The breakfast included in the rate was continental buffet with assorted juices, coffees, teas, hard cooked eggs, yogurts and toast. The breakfast room was very clean. In all it was a very nice experience with a very helpful and cordial staff. There's a Sainsbury grocery store near the Belgrave entrace of Victoria Station which was very convenient to pick up fresh fruits and sandwiches to take back to the room. There was also an internet cafe around the corner from the hotel which had good rates for emailing friends back home.

... the loudest was the silence. (The girl I asked about the order of service, mind you made it sound like an episode of Doctor Who). If you ever get the chance to be in the city of London at 11:11 on 11/11, you won't ever forget it. Bells ring...then cars stop, engines switch off, shops pause, everything just gets put aside for two minutes and the entire city is plunged into the richest silence I ...
