3 Night Stop-Over between Norway and Australia”

Fantastic location, great for public transport, theatres, buckingham palace etc, very comfortable room, great breakfast, helpful staff in all departments.
It was a bit of a hike to get to our room but completely understandable given the historic layout of the building, and the room was so great it was worth it.

I stayed in this hotel over 10 years ago and loved it so much that I was determined to stay here again if I ever ended up back to London. I am so glad we decided to go for it and pay the bit extra because it was as wonderful as I remembered it the first time around. The hotel eminates historic beauty, the staff are wonderful and the location unbeatable. When you only have a short time and need easy access to public transport this is the place to stay; not to mention Buckingham Palace just down the road and at least 2 theatres visible out the bedroom window - we went to both Wicked and Billy Elliot which were literally a 2 minute walk from the front door. I must also mention that, given the roasting temperature of London during our stay, not only was our room very comfortably furnished it was also kept wonderfully cool by a very powerful airconditioner. A great night's sleep and great breakfast in the morning always sets you up for a great day in general. Thank you London Grosvenor, we will definitely stay again.

Great old railway hotel”

We got a January deal here in a wing room overlooking the bus terminus.. Room billed as "small2 but was quite spacious for London. Hotel is part of the Victoria station, probably built at the same time. Has been refurbed, of course, and is a great place to stay. Buses/tube/rail on the doorstep, walkable to Westminster Abbey/Parliament, etc. hotel is what you'd expect from a Victorian age building; wide corridors, large and splendid reception, nice, if pricey, bar, overlooking the station concourse. Staff were excellent at all times. Rooms very well soundproofed, good bed, nice shower room/toilet/bath.. Only criticism- TV channels very limited, even many of those listed didn't work; and wifi was not good in the room. Would very definitely stay again if the price was right.

Great location and excellent service”

Location, service, quality

The hotel has a side door which is located right inside Victoria railway station, so that is very convenient. There are a few steps though, so if you've heavy luggage, that may be slightly problematic. But the hotel staff have impeccable service and really made us feel welcomed. Hotel is also a five-minute walk to the coach station where you can take a coach (National Express) to Heathrow Airport. There are also other buses out to other areas, so it's really convenient. Many tourist attractions like the Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace, as well as parks (Buckingham Palace Park, St James Park, Green Park) are all within walking distance from the hotel. With a map, it's really easier to navigate your way around the streets. There are also many theaters in the area, so if you are into musicals, you will love to stay at the Westminster area. If you need to take the tube, the Victoria Station Underground is linked to the railway station, so that's very convenient too. The hotel room is really comfortable and clean. We checked in and went almost right away to do sight-seeing. When we returned, we were informed that there was a problem with the a/c and the hotel automatically upgraded us to an executive room which was great. In the daytime you can faintly hear the announcements from the railway station, but who stays in the room in the day anyway. At night, the room was great to sleep in. Personally I find it too busy in this area as we also stayed in the Tower Hill area (opposite Tower of London) and it was just 5 minutes to River Thames. But overall, this hotel is really fantastic and I would recommend anyone who wants to do sightseeing to stay here.

Great Value and Location”

We loved the Grosvenor. Highly recommended. The best location for getting around town. The rooms are small but for central London it is a bargain. The staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. If you stay in the wing the elevator system may take a trip or two to get used to but in the end it was awesome. If we go back to London we will certainly stay there again. Thumbs Up!

Convenient London Hotel”

The Grosvenor Hotel is very convenient for a stay in London with Buckingham Palace and other famous sight seeing locations only a short walk away.. Because it sits alongside Victoria railway station you can come off of a train and straight into the hotel. The hotel and rooms are very clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Traditional and great location”

location

This hotel is a historical hotel with beautiful interiors. There are two great restaurants in the hotel and a cocktail bar. The location is great, right next to the Victoria station which is a major station for the tube as well as destinations outside of London. There are also main bus stops within a 2 min walking distance. It is also close the the palace, westminster abbey, along with other site seeing spots. However, though my stay was overall great, house keeping managed to accidentally throw away a new dress that I had bought, assuming that it was rubbish. I didn't get any compensation and little effort was made to retrieve it. The rooms were arranged in a weird way. We stayed in one of the wings and it was a bit of a hassle to get there.

Although we only stayed one night it was most enjoyable. The staff in the Reception and at the Concierge Desk were friendly, helpful and polite. The Restaurant staff too were professional and attentive. The Bedroom was adequately sized, well appointed, comfortable and clean. For another visit to London we certainly would consider The Grosvenor again.

Convenient location with personal charm”

Adjacent to Victoria Station

this was a great stop for a couple of days in london with an entrance directly inside the station. the grosvenor manages to abstain from the impersonal, clinical models we have come to expect from transit hotels. soft carpeting and warm lighting paired with courteous staff create the necessary elements for a little charm. the rooms are fair sized for a london hotel, with comfortable beds and fluffy pillows. bathrooms are newly refurbished, lacking in amenities and could be called bijou at best. they are however, clean and well maintained, and above all for winter - warm.

Hotel beside Victoria train station”

Good location, clean rooms, superb staff

The Grosvenor hotel is conveniently located beside Victoria station.Room was exceedingly and staff were very nice and attentive. The only minor issue is that if you're room is an executive room on the 7th floor you will have to take 2 elevators, while if you are staying on the wing side of the building you have to take an elevator then stairs. It's sort of confusing and I even got lost one time looking for our room.

Prime location, excellent service”

The Grosvenor is about as well-situated as a hotel can be, right next to Victoria Station. The staff was very helpful, aiding us in trying to track down a fairly obscure site in the city. The hotel is also very close to a hop-on/hop-off site, which after a day of trekking in the city and up and down steps, is also a point in its favor. The decor and atmosphere were also very nice.

Location for sights and transport, staff

The hotel is perfectly located to explore London. Within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, parliament, famous parks and Trafalgar Square. Back entrance of hotel opens on to Victoria station, 30 minutes by train to Gatwick airport, tube station, lots of shops, cafe and eating places. Walk through the station and across the road and you are at the Apollo Theatre where the musical Wicked is showing, Billy Elliot also showing within walking distance. Our room was on the second floor and over the station entrance so there was a small amount of noise from station announcement especially in the early morning but it wasn't that much of a problem. Hotel staff were very helpful and even provided a computer and printer so I could print a boarding pass. The porters went out of their way to help even when we were using the back entrance to the train station. Room was not particularly spacious but very comfortable and exceptionally clean. The building is beautiful and even though the hotel has an opulent feel it wasn't pretentious. The Champagne bar was a lovely tough. We didn't eat in the restaurants but they were not overly pricey when I looked at the menu. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it as central and conveniently located London accommodation.
