Reviewed 10 April 2016

I experience a good stay. The staff was friendly and the rooms are clean. The free WiFi and the drinks (None alcoholic) are very good. My room (6 person) was very small and my locker was "disturbed". He closed very hard.

The staff was very friendly, room and bathroom installations were of good quality, the location is interesting and last but not least, the atmosphere was really, really, great. A nice place to stay in London, especially while travelling with a few friends, where you can both enjoy yourself, drink a few pintes AND rest, sleep pretty well!

We had a great time. Food was great, But the best part was our waitress Ortal who served is with a smile! We will definitely come back. It is located in a lovely outdoor mall near the old city. Place was clean and atmosphere was the best.

Or you can eat pancakes, a smoothie, cereal, yogurt, toast, fruit, juices, coffee, and more. The beds are a little lumpy and there's some noise, but they have free earplugs...

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.
