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.

... rich Maritime history so there was a Naval Museum, a huge ship called the Cutty Stark, and a lot of nautical things to look at. My friend Kathryn had told me about a hill that I should climb so that I could get an amazing view of London. Katrin and I made our way up that hill and man was she right! I had never seen London like this, it was so beautiful! They have a cute little skyline that you wouldn't normally see from ground level. Katrin and I sat there for ...
... Park Lane is a better option). Then the teachers would have until 2:45 to take their major classes somewhere subject related, and also to eat lunch.
Hiccup #5 actually occurred en route to London, when the teachers on my bus started trying to figure out lunch. They were concerned that there would be no where to eat near the museum they wanted to see. I pointed out that in London you can pretty much guarantee to find a different ...
I needed to give Carmie back all the camping stuff she had lent me so we decided to go out for ribs. First we walked all the way to the ribs place in Wimbledon only to see that it had closed down before we settled on Bills.
We still went for ribs (god yes I eat a lot of ribs...), had a bottle of wine and I stupidly agreed to go speed dating with her... watch this space.
Always nice to see Carmie- she is such a ...
... with Scottish guards. Another favorite part was seeing Westminster abbey, the parliament house, and Big Ben. These old buildings are incredible and worth celebrating. At the end of our tour we went to a restaurant called The Old Monk. We shared a plate of fish and chips as well as a veggie burger. I got a Lager beer to go with my fish and chips because apparently pubs are a big deal in London. The food we great and I enjoyed my fish. The only funny thing is that chips ...
