Historical Traveler Reviews Sidney Hotel London-Victoria
Very helpful staff. Hotel under renovation. If you go to London to see London and not hang around in the Hotel all day this is a wise choice. Very affordable. Rooms get a little warm at night, but by opening the window we were able to stay comfortable.
Surely a hotel should shut during renovation work?!
This hotel is, in my humble opinion, for very short-stays only! The single room I had felt tiny; I had to keep the bathroom door open in order to be able to turn around in it! My room was on the first floor overlooking the road outside so it was very noisy; I could have kept the window shut, but then I would have had to rely on the overhead fan which sounded like a propellor aircraft taking off when I switched it on!!
The breakfast room was in a full state of being replastered, repainted etc; so was especially depressing. The only good thing about it was the coffee!
Unfortunately, I would not stay here again. As another reviewer has written - next time it's travellodge!
Small and basic
Probably the worst hotel I've stayed in London during the last few years of frequent London travel. My fault for letting someone else book me a 3* cheap hotel for tourists........u get what u pay for in life. The rooms are old.....beds small....and the bathrooms a sort of miniscule plastic pod built as one unit (very wierd). ok for one night.......at least it was very clean and the breakfast staff were friendly. If spending less than 60 quid in London ALWAYS stay at a travelin/lodge etc
Very quiet, enjoyable hotel
Stayed over our Thanksgiving holiday. The staff was very polite, helpful and accommodating. We were able to stay in a "quad room" and they made sure we had a ground floor family room since I am in a wheelchair. The beds were quite comfortable. Breakfast (included in our room rate) was good with a variety of items available. We were pleased that the hotel was quiet; transportation was readily accessible and it was well-located to get to a variety of areas we wanted to visit during our stay.
You get what you pay for in London
I am a travel agent and wanted to find an inexpensive hotel,centrally located to recommend to clients and friends. It is a bit hard to find but nevertheless is within walking distance of Victoria Station which is the hub. The rooms are not large but sufficient and clean. Bathrooms were a touch small by north american standards and built for short people ie. basin very low. The hotel has a bar for drinks and provides Breakfast in the am. Check in and hotel staff were very accomodating.
Even moved our room so we could have a view of street instead of the back of the building. Give them a try. You cant go wrong for the price!!!
Not for families
First let me say that the location of The Sidney Hotel in the Victoria area of London, is very good. Just a block away is a laundromat where "Ella" will wash, dry and fold your clothes for about 5.30 Euro (about $8) and you can walk to many attractions, or train stations. The staff people were very nice and helpful. I had difficulty using the pay phone with a newly purchased international calling card and the desk manager offered his cell phone. He was very attentive to my problem. That said, let me also say this is a dingy and worn out hotel. The air conditioned lobby looks nothing like the website photo and the "full breakfast" that's included in the rate, is pathetic. The rooms in the "newer" or "remodeled" section are okay. Our friend had a pleasant 2nd floor room overlooking the street. The ceiling fan provided a decent breeze during the heatwave crippling London. But our "family" or "quad" room on the 1st floor near the lobby, was disgusting. Room 106 had 4 single beds and a window overlooking a filthy fully enclosed airshaft. The small table fan barely moved the hot air around in the corner it sat in. The room was excruciatingly HOT and our children woke up several times during the night in a sweat. The carpet and drapes were worn and unattractive. I have to say, though, that the bathroom was clean and the cleaning staff worked hard to do what they could. But at 140 Pounds (around $175/night), this is just not worth it. Four young singles might not mind "slumming" it there, but families beware.

... Janet came on screen (SLUT) and Brad came on screen (********), newspaper for the rain scene and tissues for the going home scene! We sang, we danced and it was hilarious! Made me think of my parents doing the exact same thing 20 years ago... nothing has changed!
After the viewing, it was around 2am so we went to a "late night" Chinese restaurant for a feed... in costume... at 2am... the looks we got. To be perfectly honest, most people just didn't get it.
May have got over the get lag due to lots of sleep on the plane. Tube to Hyde Park Square to look at the Australian Memorial and then walked in the gardens to Buckingham Palace and down to Trafalgar Square before a walk along the Thames to take in Big Ben & Westminster Abbey before back to have a feed & beer. Legs a tad weary, walked about 15 kms ...
After the day to Paris, we have a sleep in and don't get down to breakfast until after 10.00am. Our schedule has us leaving the Hotel 54 Boutique today and travelling to the Sofitel Hotel which is attached to the Gatwick Airport. The reason for this being that we have an early morning flight out of London to Dubai tomorrow. Given the potential traffic issues in and around London, we decided it would be best to be at the airport the day before.
... out the station and went to green square, changed lines and went to Piccadilly circus. I walked around Piccadilly circus, walked to Trafalgar square, took pictures of the area, then walked up Charing cross road. Here i checked out a few of the bookshops including Forbidden planet and i had lunch in the general area. I then walked to convent garden, walked around, checked out the place and then headed for Leicester square. I ...
... Monopoly board. We did a full circuit of the bus trip and got off at Trafalgar Square, had a wander around then went for a cruise on the Thames, we ended up at the Tower of London. Had a nice rest and did some people watching, then back on the bus and onto Selfridges, Harry wasn't in, but got a nice photo out the front. A quick trip to marks & spencers then back on the tube and home for dinner and our last night in London this trip. ...
