Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by climber2 Nice staff but no air conditioning
We enjoyed our stay in London and the location of the hotel was close to bus and underground. The staff was helpful and very friendly however the room was very hot and the hotel does not have air conditioning. They did provide a fan but there isn't an electrical outlet near the window.
The room was very small and compared to American standards, we were not impressed. However in comparison to other London hotels, it was a good deal since it included breakfast which was very expensive in London.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Replex Restful stay not possible
I have choosen this hotel because of the good location, very close to many sights and to victoria station.
The room was clean and the room size for london fair enough.
Unfortunately there was no aircondition in this room and the windows couldn't be opend more than 10cm. Because of very hot temperatures outside the room was heated up during the day and caused by the windowsbarrier there was no possibility to cool down the room before going to bed. Sleeping by about 30°C room temperature and very much noise caused by the road (2nd floor, window to the road) was nearly impossible.
The windows in the room are old and there was more or less no noisedifference between open and closed window.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by D Ager Beautiful ok'd building in a great location
I recently stayed at this hotel for one night whilst in London on business. The hotel is located on a beautiful old street in Pimlico, which us ideal for Central London. Pimlico tube us just around the corner and the 24 bus stops on Belgrave Aroad, where the hotel is located.. Overall, I was very impressed and I look forward to returning with my family in October.
All the staff that I met were extremely helpful.
The room was spotlessly clean.
The breakfast was very good.
The location is fantastic
The hotel us quite small which helps retain a sense of personal service
A couple of areas for improvement:
This hotel has a number of smoking rooms. I was originally allocated a smoking room, although the staff were very helpful when I asked to change.
The rooms don't have air conditioning. During the current heat-wave, it was extremely hot in the room
The room rates are relatively expensive considering Holiday Inn Express is a value brand

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ECE3 Great location in a quiet part of town that close to tube stations
This street is full of small hotels, both chain and independent. It is an easy walk with luggage from the Pimlico tube station (5 minutes)...slightly longer from Victoria (15 mins), It is quiet at night with a smattering of small pubs for dinner just off the street

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bauld Good value for a London Hotel
Overall its a great hotel for one or two nights. The location is brilliant, just around the corner from the Tube Station. The staff were all excellent, friendly and seemed interested in the customers. The night Manager was a little grumpy at 3 am when returning but who wouldn't be? I would recommend this hotel but if you are staying in the City a bit longer, then a hotel with a bigger room might be best - especially if two people are staying.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris+Family Great location
The hotel was located in a quite neighborhood 10 minute walk from victoria station & 15 minutes from the palace. We only had one night before catching a flight out of gatwick the next morning. The hotel staff was very helpful, we had to leave before breakfast and they offered to prepare a plate of pastries & fruit we could eat+bring with us when we checked out. The room was extremely comfortable for our family of 4...strongly recommend staying a this hotel again.
