Very central Location

The hotel is located 5 minutes from Victoria Station. Small basic hotel, very friendly staff. The room was airy with able towels provided. It has tea/coffee facilities. There was also a fan provided for humid weather. The breakfast was fresh and plenty to eat. I will be staying here on my next visit to london. Good value for the price

Overnight near Victoria Station, London

tiny room in the attic, fourth floor, no prior notice of this. Had to climb into the bed, and hit my head off the sloping ceiling. Breakfast was chaotic, crowded, too little delph and cutlery.

Perfect for the money

Absolutely perfect for the money. Room is small but adequate. Bathroom is tiny but ample. It's all very clean. Breakfast was also perfectly fine. Those people complaining about the place are obviously expecting a lot more for their money. This is a budget hotel a short walk away from Victoria station. You should expect nothing more than a clean bed and clean bathroom - and this is exactly what you get. Staff are also friendly and helpful.

Hanover stay

We were staying over night for a theatre visit/christmas shopping, so for this purpose it was great in terms of location. However I would not want to stay for longer than a day as the room was not too clean and very cramped, the bed was hard and the breakfast buffet very limited to a bit of toast. But I would go stay there again, as it was cheap and in a good location, and though basic, met our needs satisfactory.

A nice simple hotel.

Small, but really nice and symphatetic hotel. Good location, nice staff, breakfast is simple but good. The building is old and tiny so don't expect any extra luxury. Staircase is narrow, don't take too heavy a luggage. The top floor room has a great view of Big Ben, The London Eye etc.

Value for the money!

My frind and I have for the last 3 years (on our shopping tour to London) been staying in the Victoria area(for the same amount of money per stay), and I must say that the Hanover Hotel is the best hotel out of those 3 hotels.It is clean, the walls are thik and the breakfast is marveles. The only thing I can say about the hotel is, that the room was a litle small, but it was deffently okay. We will deffently book the hotel again!
