    Historical Traveler Reviews Melbourne House Hotel London

    Excellent Quality/Price ratio


    I've stayed in London three times and Melbourne House is definitely the best accomodation I've experienced in that range of price.

    The hotel is really well refited and has the fascinating atmosphere of an old victorian-style house.

    Room (our was n.13) was small but extremely clean and tidy, the bathroom was NEW with a nice large shower. The room was at the third floor facing Belgrave Rd. but the noise wasn't a problem.

    The breakfast (croissant, orange juice, toasts, eggs/cereals, plus coffee or tea) was really good, even if not so varied.

    The tube station of Pimlico (3 stops to the city center) is 5 minutes walk; pubs, drugstores, shops, and some restaurant are within walk distance.

    Would stay there again, hotels in London are definitely over-priced but Melbourne House is an excellent deal.

    Very good deal for the money


    My husband and I spent six nights there, and thought it was a very good deal for what we paid. Our double room was small, and the bathroom was a sliver only as wide as the shower stall, but we had expected that. The people were all nice and helpful.

    The street it's on, Belgrave Rd, is very noisy, which can be a consideration. It didn't bother me too much, but it did my husband. Our front room had French windows opening out onto a mini balcony. I enjoyed sitting on the rail with morning coffee (which I ran downstairs and got as soon as the kitchen opened), and we both liked being able to get as much air as we wanted. But a rear room might have been quieter.

    The breakfast (toast, roll, juice, and eggs or cereal, plus coffee or tea) saved us a bunch of money that we might have spent elsewhere.

    It was five minutes' walk from Pimlico tube stop and the Pimlico public library. Not that you can charge out books, but it was very useful to be able to check information in the various guides to London in the library's travel section.

    On a slightly different topic, the Marmaris, a little family-run Turkish restaurant just a few blocks away, gave us wonderful kebabs very reasonably (starters and main courses for two, 20 pounds). Also, we had tasty Indian food nearby, and pub food, which you like or you don't, but the cider is great.

    For six nights, the Melbourne House was a bit cramped, but for a few nights, I'd book again any time.

    Nice place to stay


    We were very pleased with this hotel. It is centrally located, near Victoria station and even nearer to Pimlico. (But if you have a lot of baggage, take a taxi.) The staff was very nice and helpful, offering tips on where to eat, got us extra pilliows when requested, told us how to get places and even loaned us an umbrella when it was raining.

    The room we stayed in (quad) was very clean, but small, which we expected. The room was sort of split in 2 so it felt like we were separate from the kids and each room had a window.

    Breakfast was included in the price and though just eggs or cereal w/coffee/hot chocolate/juice, it was a nice way to start the day. Again, the staff was very pleasant to deal with.

    There were many little restaurants and grocery markets near there for quick bites.

    We would stay there again.

    ... streets all bombed. Terrible times but all of it was so well displayed in this museum. We really feel like we know so much more about the places we are walking past now. It was a great day. We made our way back to Brendas for another wonderful meal waiting for us, full of all the interesting facts that we learned today. Every night we walk down the road to Sheilas full, tired and happy form our London adventures. Tonight we saw a fox on the way home! See you tomorrow. -Grace.

Yesterday, we spent so much time searching for stores and today I knew exactly where a lot of places were located. Some of the attractions we saw while riding the bus were: the national gallery museum, where Harry Potter went to school, USM, Oxford circus, and Hyde Park. It was ...
