Comfort Inn Buckingham Palace Road

Flight arrived at Heathrow on schedule at 0530. By the time we cleared the airport and picked up our Oyster cards for the tube we we on our way to Victoria. It's a BIG station and we came out the opposite side which turned a 10 min walk to our hotel into 20 minutes. Too early to check in so we left our bags and set off for a good walk up past …
Today we slept in. I think we had a bit of jet lag mixed with lots of walking. We decided not to take any cabs or buses. We headed out around noon and went directly to 10 Downing (the residence of the Prime Minister.) He was not there so with the help of Paul's police ID we were able to get through the gates and get a picture at the front door. …
Went to see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. We arrived an hour early and there were people lined up along the fence, 2 deep. It was difficult to see the whole picture because we were so close to the fence (an aerial view would be best). We left the fence area before it was over and headed down The Mall (street leading in and out of …
WOW! What a day! The flights were smooth and the anti-anxiety meds worked. I was able to relax and enjoy the flights like when I was a kid. When we arrived in London we took the Tube (subway) to our hotel. People were very helpful when giving us directions. Our room wasn't ready right away so we had breakfast at a French café (who would have …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Triple Rooms were small ( probably typical for London though), nowhere to sit except beds and one desk chair. Also near rail line so noisy on hot nights if you left the window open. Would be ok in cooler weather.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good too.

Great Value, Great Service
My mother and I stayed her on Oct 12, 2005. The manager allowed us to check in early and the room was bright and clean. Would definately stay here again.
I stayed in a single room, and the space was more than adequate for one person. It was also clean, and I felt secure there as a single woman traveler -- even though I arrived quite late at night dragging a bunch of luggage & obviously looking like someone from out of town. The area around Victoria Station is FULL of people looking like that, so the streets don't ever seem vacant or threatening. That said, they're also not beautiful: this hotel is close to the coach station and a major train station, and the real reasons to stay there are convenience and price, not aesthetics.
It definitely was worth the money!
I had a single room in this hotel for one night enroute to Cardiff and the room, though small was cozy and comfortable. Both the room and the bathroom were clean and I had a very satisfactory stay at this hotel. It is very conveniently located- near Victoria Coach Station and not far at all from Victoria Train Station. I will definitely consider staying at this hotel again on my next trip to London.
I stayed at the Comfort Inn, Buckingham Palace Road for two weekend nights, prior to my flight home.
I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and 2 boys (10 and 8). We had a family room with a double bed and two twin beds. The biggest pro is the location. We came on a bus from Oxford to Victoria Station and the hotel is right around the corner. We were able to walk to Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey with no problem and buses, tubes and tour buses all pick up right near Victoria. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The breakfast was typical Comfort Inn continental type. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large enough for my two kids not to drive me crazy. It was clean. Cons would be that the hotel is right next to the train tracks going into Victoria. We did hear the rumble of trains, but it did not keep us up at night. Our room was in the basement so there was no view. I recommend it for the short stay tourist and those with kids who want to have one room and a kid friendly breakfast.
Not bad at all
Tiny room, but containedeverything we needed for a comfortable two nights stay, conveniently located for our course at the Goring. Staff were very helpful, natty little Thai restaurant only 60 feet from the front door!
We'd recommend to stay again, oh, in fact we are this weekend!!!
Stayed in a single room for one night in February 2005. My room was on the 4th floor so had to walk up one flight of stairs as the lift only serves the first 3 floors.
It was lovely.
I went to Comfort Inn Buckingham Palace Rd at the end of octomber 2004 for 5 nights, we arrived at the hotel at 10.30 am the manager was really friendly.Our room was ready at 12.30it was really nice and big with spacious bathroom and a small balcony. the locetion was perfect next to Victoria Station ,St James Park ,Buckingham palace, London Eye,Westnister Abbey.
The breakfast was really tasty.
I will befnitely go back with all my family!!!
Thank you for the lovely stay.You will see me soon!
Excellent refurbished hotel at reasonable prices
A excellent hotel which has just undergone refurbishment. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Excellent location.
This is the worst hotel I have stayed in... Everything here is bad, except the location which I have to say that is very good.
The hotel is in a very bad condition, not clean, the staff was rude. i am very disapointed with this hotel and very happy to have booked there one night only.
If you can, avoid this hotel!!
