Historical Traveler Reviews The Dover Hotel London
Very good for the price
Bedroom and bathroom were very small, but overall a great room for the price. Hotel was clean and in a great location, near Victoria Station and a short walk to Buckingman Palace. I would stay there again.
We were required to pay the full amount when we checked in. No wonder! We would have left first thing in the morning if we hadn't. Didn't get any sleep the first night. Even though it was a Wednesday there was a steady flow of traffic up and down the stairs and doors banging all night. At 2 a.m. a man stood outside our door and had a loud and lengthy telephone conversation.
Each morning a waitress brought toast to the table without a word or a smile. We helped ourselves to cold cereal and hot drinks from machines. There were 2 men taking turns at reception. One may have been shy, the other was just surly.
The shower and toilet were teeny, as was the room. We had an uncomfortable stay and the staff were not friendly at all.
I would not stay at this hotel again.
Nothing to complain
We had double room with own toilette and shower. Room was tiny but enough anyway. Hotel was clean and tidy but of course old carpet was stqined and worn-out.
Breakfast was 2 kinds of juice, 5 cereals, toast, hot drinks, butter and marmalade.
Situation was very good. No noice from the staion. I can recommed this 2 star hotel. Bed was very good.
Fine for 2 star hotel
I had booked a triple ensuite. None were available on ceck in, so was given a double ensuite and a single. Was an acceptable budgit hotel. It was conveniently located within 3 blocks of Victoria station (athough a little difficult to find). It is very old and a little run down, but clean. The rooms were VERY small (even by European standards). Front desk was helpful.
I stayed here in a triple room with two others for one night only. The hotel itself is part of a terrace with the Calvados Hotel next door run by the same folks.
This is a basic hotel, as the prices would lead you to believe. You get a bed, a very small bathroom which appears to have been installed as a single unit - i.e. the whole bathroom is installed in one go. As this is an old building, some of the floors are uneven which can mean you sleep on a slant (not me fortunately but my friend did have to sleep like this). The stairs between floors are steep so think carefully about staying here if you have restricted mobility.
Overall, for £20 per person (3 people) for a night this wasn't bad, and it does include breakfast which we didn't have time to sample as we checked out at 5:30am.
If you're on a budget I'm sure this place is great but I wouldn't want to spend any more than one night here.

... too much on the
open top deck. Once we got back to the Tower Bridge dock, we caught the train
to Euston Station and then walked through Regent Part to the London Zoo. Regent
Park was huge! Larger than paddocks and beautiful and green. At the zoo, we got
to see some great views of the gorillas, giraffes and some other animals. Being
a summer afternoon, we also found many of the animals were just sitting in the
shade at the ...
... a while and realised it was probably one of the last times I was going to see him (given I fly to Luxembourg in the morning), so gave him an extra big hug when I left.
Then I went and said goodbye to my juicy friends at Juice Tonic and then finally...goodbye to one of the most supportive, best friends I've had.
My dear Carrie.
I am so not ready to do more goodbyes like this. Because I don't know when I am going to see her again.
... had a million food stands and a million people. That part is really the only negative aspect I can say about London. It is very much like NYC in the fact that there are always a million people everywhere you go. It was also kinda cool in that aspect too, but just very different than Dublin. We finally reached the London eye which I had been excitingly awaiting. I feel like the London Eye is one of those things you have to go on once in your lifetime, but I would totally ...
My original plan today was so clean up and redo the backyard.
Instead I rugged up warmly and had a market day. I started at the Spittlefields Market before going to the Borough Market.
Spittlefields market was awesome, full of 50's style dresses (which I refrained from buying), and cosy warm dresses (which I also ...
... see the movie and Lena agreed to watch it too. The movie was very different than the book and not as deep or as clear. I would recommended people to read the book rather than watch the movie as the meaning and story is very different. I was still glad to watch it but it wasn't as good as the book. After the movie, we headed to a place Sugar and Rum. I had a super tasty soup and Charly and I both got warm Rum Chai Cocktails that were sooo tasty! We were all so ...
