About this Hotel

Price From $122

'Hood Belgravia, a residential district known for its 19th-century, white stucco mansions. The hotel is near the boutique shops of Sloane Square and Kings Road, and a 20-minute walk east of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

The Gist With an understated and tactful decór, the 18 rooms at this family-owned inn are painted yellow, pink, or taupe. Bathrooms have high-pressure showers. Online reviews generally praised the hotel's full English breakfast, which is included in the rate and is served on Royal Doulton fine china, and the convenience of the hotel's location. (Victoria Station, a key subway stop, is only 1,000 feet away.) But note that there's no elevator in this six-floor building. For the greatest assurance of quiet, ask for a room that's not facing busy Belgrave Road. A deposit by check or bank draft is required for reservations at least two weeks' in advance of arrival. Double, twin, triple, quad, and family suite rooms are offered.

Free Wi-Fi? No.

Credit Cards Accepted None.
