We stayed 2 nights in a " 4 star" hotel(will not name) near Victoria Station- it was a dump with a high price tag (organised by our agent) - We organised Dover weeks prior to leaving Australia without seeing, communication was excellent and reassuring. The Dover was : *Clean light airy *Staff professional ,helpful ,courteous,knowledgeable and accessible for any enquiry....

We booked this hotel directly on their website after its recommendation on a touristic guide we bought for our trip. We checked the reviews and thought it was a good option, however the experience was not that good. The people at the front desk were nice and at least our room was clean (other guests were not very happy though),...

Hi, I've been to Dover Hotel in August. The location is excellent, if you like to walk, in a few minutes you can get to the basic attractions (Parliament, London Eye, etc). The staff is kind. The accomodations are not so good. The hotel is very old, the carpet and courtains terrible if you have alergy. The rooms are very...

On my most recent visit to London, I stayed at the Dover Hotel near Victoria Station ... its' location was in a quieter area of the city. The double room I occupied was confined and limited in space with adequate lighting. The small size of the room didn't justify the hotel room rate charged to yours truly. I also had...

We stayed at this hotel as I needed one close to Victotia station during a short stop over in London. Its proximity to the station makes this hotel very advantageous and expensive. I was lucky to be given a room at ground floor level as I requested that I preferred one during my booking. However other rooms have no lift...

Although the room was clean and the staff was cordial, I cannot say anything else positive about our experience. The room was the smallest I've ever experienced. It was on the 4th floor and there was no lift, nor was any help offered carrying our luggage up. I could feel the individual springs through the old mattress. The lack of...

There are a few errors in this Review. The Hotel has only got 3 floors.We have also never advertised that we have a lift or air conditioning. As far as the theft is concerned, it was most unfortunate as it was carried out by an ex American army personnel who used his army background to break into rooms. We found...

Shame on you Expedia for allowing customers to book a room through you. This place was horrible! I thought that all I really needed was a clean room, warm bed and a place to shower, the Dover Hotle...uh....Hostel...was not it. How it received 2 stars is beyond me. The room was filthy, ripped curtains, water spots where the ceiling had...

We think that this reviewer has another axe to grind and is not telling the truth. We have been in Business for over 20 years, with a large percentage of repeat guests. We are inspected by the London Tourist Board every year and get a clean bill of health. Most of the other reviews justify our comments. If the review...

We booked and paid for this accommodation (non refundable) before we started using trip advisor and were very apprehensive after reading the comments. Overall we had no problems with this stay. The position was great. 5 minutes from the Victoria train station and an easy 20 minute walk to Westminster Bridge past some great pubs. The hotel provides 24 hour...

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
