          Historical Traveler Reviews The Belgrave London

          Much better than expected

          from

          After some of the previous reviews here, our expectations weren't very high. But, the hotel was above average for a London tourist class hotel. The room we had was a good size (again, for London - don't expect big!), with very high ceilings (maybe 20 feet). The room was VERY clean, and kept clean. We were on the second floor, and the noise wasn't very bad at all. The bathroom was also extremely clean, and was thoroughly cleaned every day. The heater was set fairly high, but we finally managed to get it turned down - however, the staff seemed to turn it back up every day. Unlike other hotels we have stayed in, the windows would open, so we could cool the room off at night before bed.

          It was apparent that the hotel has recently been remodeled/refurbished, and this may be why it is in better condition than previous remarks may suggest. Overall, I will almost definitely stay in this hotel next visit to London - but I would definitely try for a better rate than they have posted - we payed less than half of their posted rate when we booked (but we booked through Expedia).

          Satisfactory with one big caveat

          from

          The hotel is very conveniently located, although there are certainly much more interesting areas in London. This stretch of Belgrave Road is a trove of tourist-class hotels, with the Tate Gallery the only major institution nearby, although I would estimate it's almost a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel to the museum.

          We did not have terribly high expectations, given the very reasonable rate we received through an online consolidator (Expedia, perhaps) for under $100 per night.

          The room was on the first floor, and as others have said, was very clean. I suspect the hotel had had a facelift in the previous year: the hallways were freshly painted and newly carpeted. Being on the ground floor, the room featured a very high ceiling.

          Having said that, we discovered that these terrace houses--or at least this one--were built with very little sound insulation and no air space between floors. Although there were no rooms on either side of us, we could hear every pounding footstep of the guest in the room above us, and for some reason, he traipsed heavily when he came in after midnight and again when he rose at 6:00 a.m. I'm a heavy sleeper, but he woke even me up when he came in and when he arose. The last night of his visit he left for the airport at 4:00 a.m., having returned only two hours previously, meaning that he kept me up while he paced back and forth to pack. The poor night clerk wasn't able to do much, since the hotel was sold out. The guest our next and last night was, I was told, a "lady doctor," and we could hear her every step as well, although she was much more graceful than her predecessor.

          My suggestions are to request a room on the top floor, if you're at all sensitive to this kind of noise, or to consider another tourist-class hotel, perhaps one in a somewhat more interesting area, such as Bloomsbury.

          Not worth it

          from

          We spent extra money thinking for our first night we would go a little higher than we usually do. The bed was a fold out couch, rather uncomfortable. No breakfast was included. We then stayed in our regular lower price range hotels for several nights and had comfortable bed and delicious breakfasts provided.

          Great small hotel

          from

          Great moderate price hotel. The staff was very helpful, especially Mariya at reception, The hotel was very clean and it was convenient and central to most sites. The bus was only a short walk from the hotel and there were many local restaurants in the vicinity. Te people in general were very kind and helpful. We enjoyed our stay in London, it should have been longer.

          Plain but Clean

          from

          The one thing about the room that was most impressive to me and most important to me: Its cleanlinesss. This hotel has first class housekeeping. The room and bathroom were small, but clean. The bath tub was narrow, but very deep and I enjoyed bathing. Our room was kept spic and span. Breakfast was passable. But, it can stand improvement. Its only 4 pounds if you let staff know the night before ~ otherwise 9 pounds. It is near the center of fun: Parliament, the Tate, Victoria Station.

          One step above a dump

          from

          This hotel has definitely seen better days--at least I hope it has. There's a very small, depressing lobby, dingy hallways, tiny elevator. My room was the smallest I've ever stayed in anywhere since my pup tent days. It's about a 10 minute walk to Victoria Station, but not especially near any tourism sites of interest. It's passable if you are on a tight bdget, but you should be able to do better than this. The Quality Hotel Eccleston, marketed by the same chain and up the street closer to Victoria Station is much better (though still not great) at a comparable price.

          If you think the days of empty flights are over, you're wrong. Two in two days, this one perhaps 30% full. An empty plane from Dubai to London, meant room to move, quick service, no toilet queues. It's like the golden age of air travel is back. Dubai Airport is such an amazing place to people watch. Pashtun tribesmen, immaculate Emeratis, *****ians …

          ... are sheer delight as respite from the relentless traffic now with added cyclists. New London Architecture - a scaled model of the whole of London is perfect in its detail. This is found near the university quarter, with an innovative public space project outside - seating and a bookshelf for people to use and hopefully not abuse. United Grand Lodge of Freemasons which is an almost unbelievable building on the edge of Covent Garden. ...

          ... see most of it. It was so interesting, we saw only part of one exhibit on WW1. Fascinating stuff, especially since it was 100 years ago that the war started.

          We had a quick dinner at a Mexican place and walked along the Westminster bridge to get our night photos of the London Eye, Big Ben, and Parliament. We made it to our first English Pub for a couple drinks and called it an early night since we had to get up pretty early ...

          ... to the lady with a sweet kind heart.
          I always seem to outdo all Irish people on the number of places I have been in Ireland. I have seen more of the country than most Irish. So I need to give a shoutout to the couple in the dishwasher corner, the lovely couple standing at the bar, and to the Irishman at the end of the bar who I got talking to,(yes I will send you a book).
