Area description
Located in Pimlico SW1. Bordered to the north by Victoria and to the south by the River Thames, Pimlico is one of central London`s finest and most desirable residential areas. Residents of Pimlico are within walking distance of Millbank, Vauxhall, Chelsea, Westminster and Victoria, and with superb public transport connections, only a short distance from the West End and the City. The influence of the Victorian entrepreneur, architect and builder Thomas Cubitt can be seen throughout the area. In the 1820s, Cubitt bought leases for most of the area from the Duke of Westminster, and proceeded to build the distinctive, elegant townhouses that can be seen along the streets of Pimlico to this day.

I stayed here for five nights for work. It was an easy walk to my meetings at Westminster and very close to the tube too. The grounds were really nice, enormous gardens for relaxing in! Very private and a lot of places you could find a quiet corner if needed. My one regret was my room looked over the school in Chichester street, it would have been nice to have had a room facing the courtyard. Small issue as the room was very comfortable. It was nice having a 1 bed apartment with separate sitting room. Bed was comfortable and rooms were spacious. Wish my wife had been able to come with me. One issue was the door to my room didn't lock, didn't realise this till my last day. The health centre was very well equipped too, squash courts, gym, decent sized warm swimming pool, sauna, etc. were really handy. The restaurant had a good menu and was reasonably priced. Would recommend and would definitely stay here again if I got the chance.

Last night in London

This was a fantastic experience!! We stayed in the studio apartment and it really was a comfortable stay. It far surpassed our expectations... I wish we had spent our whole week's stay there. If you're going to London, stay here!

Odd rude staff, careless attitude to guest comfort

This hotel disappointed. It was in a good location (although some distance to a supermarket) for London meetings. The rooms were tired with chipped paint and no where near as glamorous as they appeared on the website. Worse, the apartments lacked attention to comfort and convenience. For instance, there was no coffee plunger, no dish drainer, a large older bathroom without any place at all to put toiletries or make-up down (a small piece of furniture or shelf would have made a big difference). The front desk staff were extremely rude and unprofessional and it appeared that the hotel business was very secondary to longer term lettings. The pool and gym were nice, but gym staff were abrupt and busy with private clients and classes - which took a lot of the room up in the small spaces. It was quite a let down after staying the week prior in a similarly priced NY apartment hotel which was very thoughtfully appointed and had universally charming helpful staff.

Lovely apartment in quiet area

I was upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment. Massive with a large bedroom, a very big sitting room, huge bathroom and a very teeny kitchenette. The quality of the room was great. Only thing at this moment is there is building work opposite and the windows are single glazed. Great spa and gym

Fabulous, as ever!

As previously, booked a serviced apartment and the whole experience proved to be excellent value for money. The only minor niggle was that the Dolphin Bar & Restaurant arrangements had changed and we found that the prices and service in the (now) Restaurant did not compare as favourably as before. However, plenty of other choice in the area - some excellent restaurants nearby. The room was immaculate at all times and the staff at reception very efficient and friendly. Cannot recommend this facility highly enough. In fact, our friends also booked a (hotel) room and thoroughly enjoyed it too. Will definitely return!!

Decent place for a city visit

A good place to stay when visiting the London central area. Very good beds and comfort linen. Quiet location. About 5min walk to the nearest underground station, Pimlico, and about 15 minutes to Victoria station from where direct connection to e.g. Gatwick airport by either Gatwick express or by Southern trains.
