    « London sightseeing »

    Quite well placed hotel for travel being close to Pimlico underground and also not far from Victoria and walking distance to Buckingham Palace. Good clean rooms, good breakfast choice and luggage room so you can leave cases before checking in and when checked out to make the most of both days

    « Small but clean and comfortable »

    When a mistake was made with our booking of two double room the staff worked to correct a mistake providing one double and two singles offering free breakfast to compensate. They tried to be very accommodating. Although the rooms were very small they were clean, nice and comfortable. Breakfast area is handy but was very crowded. The menu contained most items in an English breakfast. The hotel is close to a nice selection of dining options and is just around the corner from the subway system

    « Good Hotel »

    Hotel is near London landmarks. it's not a big hotel but enough for what you need. Rooms are somewhat small but is good enough to rest. Bathroom area is also small but I think it depends on the type of room because the other room that our kids occupied has a spacious bathroom. Staffs are nice, approachable and helpful from reception, to housekeeping, and breakfast staff. All-in-all it was a good and satisfying stay.

    « A disappointing start to our holiday »

    We booked here due to it's proximity to Victoria Railway station. A short walk or shorter taxi journey with luggage.When we arrived in the early evening we were informed that our room was no longer available and we had been given 2 single rooms instead (not next to each other). Apparently there were no other rooms. The rooms were clean but this was not how we envisaged beginning a romantic holiday to celebrate many years together. After much discussion we were offered free breakfast (which we did not need) or a small discount which we accepted. The hotel itself was adequate and the staff were polite. Our complaint (because maintenance issues do occur ) was that they had not contacted us to let us know and to allow us to make an informed decision about what we would do as an alternative. Communication is key.

    « Tiny room, great service »

    Have stayed a few tines here on business now. Usually the only rooms in our budget are the singles. These are small and basic, but fine for one night. Reception staff are very friendly and welcoming, even remembering that I had stayed before. Best service though is from the ladies in the breakfast room. Quick and pleasant service, always smiling. Great start to the day.

    « Small but perfectly formed »

    One night stay in April with work and what a lovely little hotel it is. Whilst appreciating for the cost you will not get a big room and even though I literally could not swing a cat in my single room it was clean and warming, Lovely comfortable bed, clean bathroom with lovely shower and in a great location on Belgrave Road. Lovely friendly reception and breakfast staff always smiling and willing to help a hand with tourists not used to the area. Breakfast was lovely and lots of it if wanted and the hospitality was brilliant. If you want t cheaper London city centre hotel that is affordable this is the one. Whilst its not luxurious and is very basic its clean and friendly basic which suits me.

    « Great value, great staff »

    I stay here regularly for business as the location is great for eating out, staff are very welcoming and always remember you. The rooms whilst small they are very clean and yes outside can be noisy in the front rooms but not always and as hotel manager has said, it's not something they can control and it is a busy city. Breakfast is basic but more than ample and always fresh. I've stayed in lots of hotels in London and for the price and location of this 3 star hotel, you do get good value

    « Great service in a convenient and quiet location »

    The best 3*** experience one can have in London at a reasonable price! Avni at the reception and the other staff members were always friendly and offering help. We have had several hotels in London and will make this one our regular place to stay at.

    « Horrible »

    It was the worst hotel I've been in a long time. Shower did not drain the water, the room was really small, horrible WiFi, terrible breakfast and the guy on the reception did not help us at all. The girls were nice and helpful, but the guy that received us didn't make us feel welcomed here. Don't waste your money here

    « Always friendly staff »

    Avni on reception is always very friendly and cannot do enough for you. All the reception staff are very helpful and attentive. The double bedrooms are generally on the small side but adequate for sleeping and resting up after a hard day.. the WiFi is generally very good and responsive.. as the bedrooms I have slept in have been clean and refreshed every day. The rooms at the front are a bit noisy so try to get one at the back. Breakfast is adequate but more fresh fruit would be appreciated. I have stayed here three times in the last month on business and find it exceptional value for money.

    « Corona Experience »

    In a quiet residential area a short walk from the Pimlico tube station. Away from the bustle of busy London streets it is a very pleasant Hotel with excellent staff. An excellent buffet breakfast and I recommend the scrambled egg - light and fluffy - the best any Hotel chain has ever served us over many years.

    « Great location and good value for money »

    I have stayed here a few times when on business in London, and it is now always my first choice. The first time I stayed here, I needed accommodation for a last minute trip to London, and this was one of the few hotels within my company's travel budget and in a reasonably central location. The service was great, with very friendly reception staff, and the location is very handy, just by Pimlico tube station and a short walk to Westminster. The rooms are fairly small, but well-kept and comfortable, and enough to guarantee my return.

    « Hotel Corona- The Crown of London »

    Great experience in this centrally located hotel. There are single rooms so you don't need to get lost in a double room if your travelling on your own, family rooms are also available. Clean hotel and well presented staff and good for local attractions and transport links. Staff at the breakfast even remembered that I liked brown bread, so really made me feel welcome and at ease. Overall good value for money and I'll definitely be back!

    « good location but noisy and average breakfast »

    Spent two nights in march 18. First night and they started to dig the road up outside at 1030pm, when I wanted to go to bed; second night, a car alarm (?) went off in the night. Windows on the front had no sound insulation at all. Room very small. Breakfast very average indeed - restricted choice and not hugely appetising. On the positive side, staff were very friendly and helpful. Ive stayed here before and had one of the rooms at the back of the hotel - where it was quiet and the room larger. Perhaps try to get one of those and skip breakfast?

    « A good location hotel »

    Very friendly staff welcomed us for our stay. Avni and Ana were very helpful and kind. Ten mins walk to go to London Victoria station which is full of shops and locations to eat.Our room was clean with gd wifi and coffee facilities. Breakfast was very good.I would recommend this hotel to other clients cause we had a very comfortable and lovely stay. I would surely come again!

    « Brilliant stay »

    The hotel was a great location for us, it was very clean and smart, the breakfast was good, but a little lacking in fresh fruit and breads, all the breads were the cheapest types you can find, but never the less still a good stay, the staff were excellent, especially Avni on reception, he had nearly completed a 48 shift, and you could see he was exhausted, but he still managed to make sure we were happy with our stay, commitment through out, excellent.

    « Fantastic staff! »

    We stayed on the 8th March to attend an awards party. We decided to walk to the hotel from the station as it wasn't very far at all. Ana on reception was very welcoming (thank you for the nail polish remover!) Bedrooms were basic but clean, had everything we needed. Breakfast was lovely and there was plenty of it. The general manager - Anvi was very friendly and helpful too! We will definitely be back!

    « Impressed »

    I had to stay one night at London on Jan 28, 2018 at Best Western Hotel ( Corona Hotel) at Belgrave Road. The hotel is very close to Victoria Station which means that is easy to get there from any of the London airport. The rooms were small but very clean and cozy. The breakfast was good. The service was wonderful, especially the guy at the reception. His name was Avni. He was very kind and professional, always ready to help when it was needed. It was mostly because the service of him that I booked this hotel again when I come back at London on Feb. 02, 2018.

    It´s a comfortable and nice hotel, well located, close to victoria station (train and underground), the staff very friendly especially Mr. Avni. My wife and me are delighted with the experience in this hotel.

    « Nice area - traditional London style »

    Hotel just a few minutes walking from underground, nice hotel, small rooms. Breakfast was not the best, quality of the food was terrible ( low budget food / tasteless ) unless you dont have high standards of food quality - then it shall be OK.

    « clean and comfortable »

    this is a mid-price hotel near Victoria station, but was surprisingly good - exceptionally clean and well kept. The location was very convenient, and the view from our 4th floor room was terrific - the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, wWestminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, etc. - many important tourist sights! The room was a bit small, but the bed was very comfortable; the shower-room was tiny but well-equipped, and the general facilities were good. Breakfast was great, with a quite a wide choice on offer, and the full-English was good and freshly prepared. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely choose to stay there again - which we have never said about any other hotel in this price range!

    « Convenient location and well appointed London (Victoria/Westminster) hotel »

    No, it's not the Hilton but..... this is a centrally located hotel that is very well appointed and is well placed in the budget/mid range. It is within easy walking distance of all Westminster area attractions and businesses. My room was if anything quite small but very well appointed to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Great rainfall shower in well appointed bathroom. Large flat screen TV and very comfortable bed. Tea, coffee and complimentary buiscuits replaced daily. Full English breakfast was very nice and a bonus in this price range as ?continental' only is more usual. Staff were very friendly and professional. All in all a very nice place to base yourself for a few days business or pleasure and very good value. I have already booked this hotel when I return to London for another business trip next week - I guess that says it all.

    « Great hotel »

    Stayed here a few times with work overnight. It's a 10 min walk from London Victoria and close to lots of bars and restaurants so perfect location. Hotel is clean and if you get a family room quite spacious. I like the bottle of water and shower gel plus hot drinks with a kettle and biscuits on offer. Breakfast is fine and staff are always very friendly and efficient so definitely would recommend for a short stay.

    « Great »

    Staff really helpful and kind, the room was great with a double bed + a single bed in a ?almost-separate room?, very clean. Loved the stay, as it is close to Pimlico Station a a short walk away from Victoria Station too. Would book again with no doubt!

    Staff great very helpful close to Pimlico underground breakfast needs improving. Rooms not huge but perfectly adequate. Bed comfortable. Laundry used uses strong chemical cleaning products that permeate the linen, needs looking into.

    « Amazing value for money »

    Lovely room, lovely staff. Fantastic breakfast. Only issue was the fact that the shower room is tiny,and being a man who is more rugby player than twiglet, sitting on the toilet was convenient as I could wash my face in the sink and poo simultaneously... All in all great value for money.

    « 3 Day London Experience »

    We had a good time there, Great friendly staff and nice rooms with a nice price ( also check the BW site for the best price). The breakfast was good with enough choices. Rooms cleaned every day so after a hard day walking London it was nice to come in to the room again and fall on the comfortable bed! Victoria station and underground is not that far from the hotel. We recommend it to others, when we come to London we try to book in Corona again. Head off for you ALL staff members!

    « Home away from Home »

    I am a returning client. I am happy with my first stay so when I returned I used the same hotel. I am surprised that Mr. Avni is still there and he is as accommodating and welcoming as he used to be. When you are travelling away from home it is nice to know that your accommodation needs and questions about the hotel and the place you are visiting are welcomed and addressed in a very warm manner & makes you feel home in your own apartment. That is my experience with Mr. Avni. He have been helpful in making sure that I am accommodated in a quiet room which is always a problem when I am travelling to London, and he is went his way to helping me out with my rather heavy suitcase which is completely appreciated. In the morning it helps that Mr. Avni is warm enough to greet not just me but the people around warmly and with sense of humor enough to kick the grey weather and lift our moods at the start of the day. So overall it was a very nice stay. Definitely coming back soon with my friends this time.

    « Typical 3 star »

    Friendly professional staff. Room was to the front. External noise was a problem until about 2am. Very small room and cramped, ok for one person but not for two. Walls were thin so you can hear others. Bed was small and you felt every movement. Sleep was difficult. Bathroom small and sink partially blocked. Breakfast was ok and varied for star rating. Overall the experience was disappointing, probably won't stay there again.

    « Warm and comfortable. »

    After a day out on the cold and suffering from a heavy cold, it was a pleasure to arrive here with a warming welcome and a very snug, warm room. The single bed was very comfortable and I got a good night's sleep as the room was to the rear of the hotel, so no external noise. Bathroom was quite small with a compact shower and small washbasin. Toiletries and towels supplied. The breakfast has improved since my last visit with more hot items on offer and a good continental selection. The hotel is in a good location for Victoria, with Pimlico Underground being a short walk away. The staff here are welcoming and friendly and with good value rates in winter this is a hotel worth returning to.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. The front desk staff and breakfast servers were so friendly and helpful. Our room for 3 was a little small but well kept, clean and quiet. The location is great, not much traffic noise, and close to Pimlico and Victoria tube stations. The breakfast buffer was very good with cooked and continental breakfast items. If the room for 3 was not as compact, we would rate this 5 stars.

    « great location »

    The hotel is 5min walking distance to Victoria Station and is conveniently located in between Victoria underground station and Pimlico underground station. Belgrave Road is a lively road with lots of small hotels, a couple of restaurants, convenience stores, government offices and a school... its very quiet in the night. Its a safe neighbourhood and you can walk in the night to the shopping centre over Victoria Station. The staff are very friendly, helpful and focus on customer needs. Easy check in and check out. The receptionist helps you carry your luggage to the room; Hotel has elevator. Hotel appears recently renovated. Wifi is available throughout the hotel. There is a PC in the lobby. Breakfast buffet is excellent; loved the vegetarian sausages! lots to eat..the usual...scrambled, fried eggs, fruit, juice, cereal, coffee etc. The room is pleasantly done and is very clean. There is an extra wall electric heater. TV and wifi in the room are excellent. The staff are organized, quick and communicate well with each other. They will book your taxi and hop on hop off tour bus for you.

    « The hotel canceled my reservation »

    I had booked the hotel 3 weeks in front of my visit. A week before my trip, the hotel came with a message that they couldn't authorize my credit card, and if I didn't came up with a valid card they would cancel the room. So I gave the details again, called the credit card provider to check my credit card, used another credit card, but the hotel persisted that they couln't authorize the card (while the credit card provider could not see any attempt). I called the hotel to clear the situation, but they were totally not helpfull at all. In fact the man on the phone was quite rude. Because I needed a place to sleep I booked another hotel. And to my big suprise this hotel didn't have any problems with my credit card (not really because I have never had a problem with my card). The only reason I see is that they wanted to cancel the room, because I had booked it at a very good price (for me). The way they treated me I think is scandalous. It took me a lot of time. And although Booking.com asked several times for proof of rejection of the payment, the hotel failed to submit any evidence. Scandalous!!

    « Nice hotel - good location, great price »

    Hotel is a renovated Victorian building. Small rooms but everything is clean and most of the furnishings are in good shape. Heating is really powerful so we were never cold. Staff were very friendly & were all extremely helpful. It's a short walk (2mins) to Pimlico tube station and close to Victoria station (5mins). Breakfast was ok, you can find better but hard to argue at £9.99/person. Nice visit overall

    « ANOTHER PLEASANT BEST WESTERN HOTEL »

    We booked the only Family Room in this hotel as we needed twin beds & it was small but comfortable, however, over-priced for what you get. The staff were extremely pleasant & helpful and attentive to your every need which makes a big difference to any hotel stay. Breakfast is greatly over-priced at £12.95 but there are a few local cafes within walking distance. A point of concern is that when booking this hotel the price shown did NOT include the 20% VAT & I'm not sure if this was due to Best Western or OPODO, the site it was booked on. In any event, the final price was a shock & very misleading. The No.24 bus does NOT stop outside the hotel, as some reviewers have said, but is a few minutes walk on either side of the road. This is a great bonus when needing to get to Westminster, Victoria, etc. A big thank you to Reception Staff who made our stay very pleasant.

    « Excellent hotel for the price »

    It's not the Ritz and it's not the cleanest but it's acceptable . Rooms are tiny . Do not accept the basement rooms next to the kitchen and you'll be ok. Service by Anna at front desk was excellent. Staff is attentive.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided t try Best Western Corona. The reviews on-line are really true. I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did. People seem to really like helping people and making life the best that they can. They listen and give you their best attention. So, try it you'll like it.

    « Well located, friendly helpful staff; ok for an overnight stay. »

    One of the many hotels located on Belgrave Road with friendly staff, who are really very helpful. I misplaced my room key about three times in a single day (in my defence, It was a hectic and tiring day, lol) and had to go to the reception for access - and not once did their smiles falter. However, that's where the good stuff ends. The rooms are very small - as are the bathrooms. I knocked my elbows in the shower cubicle several times while bathing and that should tell you how small it is (and I'm a petite person here). Food is very average and the breakfast buffet is adequate. Ok for an overnight stay.

    « Mixed opinion »

    Stayed at the Corona mid November, made a mistake in booking a single room, reception area very nice and clean, staff very polite and helpful, room very small as is the bathroom sink, just about big enough to wash your hands however the shower was excellent and roomy. I don't normally like single beds due to be honest I had a great nights sleep in this one. Tea and coffee facilities in the room plus a complimentary bottle of water. Be prepared to listen rather than watch the TV as it's on top of the wardrobe. Breakfast was ok plenty of it but quality not great.

    « Theatre break »

    Let me start this review by acknowledging that we were under no illusion that this would be a 5* establishment however we did expect to be able to relax and sleep after a busy day sightseeing and visiting the theatre. Check in was 2pm. We arrived back at 14:40 to be told our room wasn't ready. As we had reservations for 17:00 we had to leave by 16:30 to get there so this wasn't good enough as it left little time to get ready. After a small grumble with the reception staff, to be told last night was very busy (I would hope so, it's a central London hotel) we were given the keys to a room in the basement. When walking to the room we passed the kitchen, the restaurant and a ton of laundry and cleaning products littering the hallway. Not a good first impression. The room, although slightly dated, was adequate sized and the bed was comfortable. Plenty of space to store things and hang your clothes. The bathroom was tiny - potentially one of the smallest I've ever been in you couldn't use the toilet properly as the sink was so close. There was also no extraction fan so it smelt damp after a while. Amenities included one tea bag each and a 2 pack of biscuits, a pen and two sheets of note paper so no good if you're attending for business purposes. We went to the theatre (which was fantastic) and came back late to get some sleep for our upcoming busy day. Unfortunately that didn't happen. From about 05:30am onwards there was excessive noise coming from the kitchen and restaurant. Banging from what I can only assume was the maids cupboard next door to our room and people talking. This meant we were exhausted the entire day which put a dampener on our sightseeing. In my opinion this room (LG06) is completely unfit for purpose. Even the rooms further round the corridor would have been better than this. As a result this ruined a perfectly good trip to London. I'm sure had we have had a different room this review would be very different. Unfortunately we didn't realise the flaw in this room location until it was to late. We raised these issues with the reception staff upon leaving when we were asked if we'd had a comfortable stay to which they stated they would pass it onto management but no opportunity to actually speak to management. After raising a formal complaint the management of this hotel have denied all knowledge of this conversation, accused us of lying and refused to compensate in anyway at all let alone an apology. The question was asked as to why we hadn't raised the issue with hotel staff sooner; when was this supposed to have occurred seeing as it was 05:30am when the noise started and already too late to rectify the issue? Due to the appalling customer service displayed by this hotel I would not recommend or return to this hotel.

    « Great location at a good price. »

    Close to Pimlico tube station this hotel is good value for money. Room was clean although the bathroom was a little on the cramped side. Bed comfortable, but while the room seemed quite isolated from outside noise we could hear people moving about above the room and on a couple of occasions it sounded like somebody was using our bathroom! Breakfast looks good on the advertising but failed to live up to expectations with cooked breakfast laid out and kept warm for a while - not good value overall. Maybe if we had been earlier it would have been better. Only having one knife on the place setting was also curious. We did ask for some more toast which seemed to irritate and it never arrived so we gave up. Good for one night but staying longer in a room that size could irritate. Also get down for breakfast early if you are having it.

    « A pleasant surprise : good value for central London »

    Looking for a central London - zone 1 - hotel which doesn't cost the earth is normally a dismal affair with paucity of choice and quality : so it was with interest I booked this rather than others in the same price range . And I am SO glad I did! This is a little gem of a hotel, it's just 5 mins walk from Pimlico tube so in total takes less than 10 mins from Victoria . It's on Belgrave road which is full of houses you would see in period dramas : dramatic , tall white buildings , steps to the front door. Reception is super friendly and informative. Rooms are small but perfectly compact. This is an old building. Rooms are small with incredibly high ceilings and nothing can change that ! The sash windows remind you this is a building that's older than any of its residents' grand parents! But quality in the room is excellent . Soft clean carpet, tea and coffee facilities and water. Comfy bed, luxurious bathroom : marble floor was nice Great WiFi connection too I faced out onto Belgrave Road and yes it's a little noisy : but that's London out there and it's a city which has never slept. Once I tuned the noise out I had a very good nights sleep.

    « No safe in room »

    The hotel is centrally located - only 10 minutes walk to the Victoria coach station and 5 minutes to Pimlico tube station. Bus stop right across the road, the route 24 can take you to the Trafalgar Square, British Museum. Room was small and the decoration odor was a bit strong so we had to leave the window open for ventilation in daytime. During the nights we had to shut it cause noises like airplanes and road traffic could be heard. Breakfast was free and the staff was polite and nice. However, let me remind you, do not believe that early breakfast could be arranged even if you saw the notice at the reception. We had made it clear to the receptionist one night in advance, she replied she had left a note to inform the next shift colleague handling it, but the next morning we were so disappointed to find that no breakfast had been prepared for us and the staff claimed they had no such service. I literally had to point and show their notice to her so she couldn't argue but it was too late for us. We prefer rooms on higher floor and our request was met. They have a lift so we didn't have trouble carrying luggage, we do appreciate that. However, after we came back for sightseeing on the second night, I found two of my facial masks were missing. I only brought 3 sheets with me so I remembered it clearly. I know I shouldn't have left the suitcase unlocked. The facial masks weren't expensive but I just don't like the idea that others go through my stuff. I reported to the receptionist the next morning and she promised she would look into it. I asked her not to bother, though. We stayed there for 4 nights, overall, we did enjoyed our stay most of the time. Good price.

    Hotel is not child friendly, only steps at the entrance, difficult to acces with a stroller Room quite small, bathroom even smaller Noisy, you can hear everything through the walls and door. Carpet seems dirty, the entire room is not really clean Breakfast is okish ~30min walking distance from buckingham palace

    « Nice hotel, nothing flash but nice and comfy »

    Nice hotel located in Westminister approximately 15min walk into town with Pimlico the nearest train station 5-10 min walk. Pro's: - Nice & friendly staff - Comfortable beds (not to firm or soft) - Breakfast good value for money - Good location, although some traffic noise from the semi main road can be heard at night Cons: - No air-conditioning which would be a -major negative in summer - Rooms little cramped - Some of the floors in the hallway are uneven and the lift is very squishy (4 ppl max) which could cause injury - No safes in the room to lock up valuables Overall nice boutique hotel which is decent value for money with friendly staff. We would stay here again in the future. Thank you Best Western for looking after us. Regards Kain

    « Price-Location-Quality = good! »

    Hotels in London are crazy expensive. This was a business trip and I wanted something very close to my business meeting. Given the location, I dont think it can get cheaper than this. But the quality of service is good, the staff is friendly, rooms are small - but I didn't need to spend time in there. The breakfast was basic but there was choice. So all in all, price, location, quality is good. I would stay here again- even for pleasure, albeit this area itself is very business oriented.

    Very tiny room in a very basic facility. Disappointing considering the price. Not a bad location but farther from the pimlico tube station than expected. I've been to London. Any times and know that rooms can be small but this was especially so. The furnishings were ok, likely updated recently.

    « Cold & noisy room »

    Single room over looking busy Belgrave Road equals a cold and noisy room, with no heating control. Not helped by noisy corridor where doors were being banged or next door floorboards creaking. The draught from the unsealed balcony door is unbearable. Terrible nights sleep. Small cramped bathroom, with warm shower. The hotel itself is accessible and within walking distance of decent amenities.

A special mention to Ana on reception who always knows my name and greets all customers with a friendly smile. I have no hesitation recommending this hotel

    We stayed 5 nights at Best Western Corona while attending the IAAF World Championships. We find this hotel excellent with friendly and helpful staff in all departments. The hotel and rooms are clean and the location is quiet. Breakfast is very good including plenty of English and Continental items.

    « Very small room and no air conditioning »

    We stayed here for one night in August in a double room. It was clean and comfortable but very small. It was a warm weekend but there was no air conditioning, which made the room uncomfortable. There were doors opening onto a small balcony but they were locked. With no other windows in the room the only thing we could do for some air was too climb up on the bed to reach a small window above the balcony doors. The bathroom was so small the door couldn't open fully. It hits the toilet bowl on opening. The shower door was broken and came off its runner. Breakfast is over priced so we ate nearby in a lovely place called Kazan Kitchen. We won't stay here again. It's a good location for what we were doing but very overpriced even for a London hotel.

    « Here Again as Limited Choice but Clean and Comfortable »

    This hotel is well situated for central London on Belgrave Road where there are several budget hotels of varying standards. The Corona was selected because I knew what to expect and that is a clean, comfortable hotel is a great location. The welcome and reception were excellent and certainly above average.The room was clean with all of the usual facilities but on the down side it was very small, even cramped. A person of a larger build may even struggle to use the shower room facilities. The room was at the front of the hotel and I did hear another resident complaining about the noise from the busy street but it didn't concern me even though I had the window open due to the closeness of the weather. The double bed was comfy. There was no air conditioning but an electric fan is provided. An iron is available from reception but you would struggle to iron in this room. Breakfast is in the basement but is a very basic and uninspiring affair despite the very best efforts of the excellent staff. When choice (and budget) is limited in London this is an adequate, clean hotel to stay in and certainly one for the budget traveller. For business I prefer something a little better and I do like my breakfasts. A good three but not a four.

    « Great Budget Hotel »

    stayed here for a weekend in June. hotel was lovely. we chose it based on the price, but it really did the job. we didnt want to spend much on accommodation - and this came up as a decent price. Room was small, but fit for purpose. we slept with the windows open as it was a hot evening, but there was no road noise ( we were facing the road). the bathroom is small, but did the job - good water pressure, and some free toiletries are always great. reception was grand.we checked in a little early. location was great. the area looks pretty fancy to us - and safe..... and the tube station is less than a 5min stroll away. we didnt eat at the hotel, but instead chose a local cafe...about 3mins away...it was grand. would recommend this hotel to anyone on a bit of a budget!! would definitely return.

    This budget hotel is based in a great location right near Pimlico tube station. Within walking distance of the Tate Britain, and Westminister. The room I was allocated was adequate, and very clean with all of the essential facilities. Despite being on the ground floor I found it pretty quiet. The bathroom was tiny but clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was no air conditioning in the room though, with the exception of a fan, which in the 30 degree heat of the capital didn't really offer much coolness. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly and happy to assist you. A continental breakfast was included in the room rate.

    « Satisfactory hotel on quiet street »

    The Best Western Corona is located on a quiet, mostly residential street in London. It is about one mile from Parliament and half-a-mile from the Victoria Station. The Pimlico Underground station is a short 5 minute walk from the Hotel. We had a friendly greeting, indeed the staff were very helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Our room was on the ground floor but did require navigating a couple of steps. It was adequately sized and comfortably, if sparsely furnished. The beds were comfortable and the linens were clean. The carpeting was worn, but clean. The bathroom had modern fixtures. One chronic problem was controlling the temperature of water in the shower. For the first three days we got nothing but cold water. Then after their "boiler man" had been in to fix it, we could get nothing but very hot water on our last night there. Fortunately we could open our windows easily because we were there during a hot spell and the room had no air conditioning. Breakfast was additional cost and we did not try it. The free wifi was slow and of limited use. Overall, except for the hot water issue our stay was satisfactory and I would consider staying there again.

    « Very handy for anything in Central London »

    Have stayed here regularly since 1999. Seems to have changed hands in recent years but a serious amount of investment has been made which was needed and no doubt why prices have risen. Characterful building unlike so many others in London. Breakfast if you want it but plenty of other options in the near vicinity along with good restaurants for lunch & dinner. Rooms are not massive but cosy which you would expect with historic buildings. Pimlico underground and Victoria rail & coach stations in walking distance and the legendary 24 bus whose route includes Victoria, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Whitehall, Horseguards Parade, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Road/Oxford Street to name but a few. Enjoy.

    « Broom Cupboard with a Bed »

    Visited for business, nice welcome but this is where the quality stopped. My appointed room was tiny in the basement. The bathroom was poor - no bigger than a wardrobe - toilet was positioned under the sink such that it was impossible to sit normally on it and the seat was stained with years of ingrained use. Shower door off its hinges. Next to a fire door to rear of hotel which guests/staff were using as some sort of smoking area til late at night with commensurate disturbance, further compounded by the constant drone from the hotels aircon units attached to the outside wall at the back of my room. Breakfast was adequate. Only saving grace was outstanding little Italian restaurant up the road called o sole mio!

    « Too basic for the price »

    I get London isn't cheap and I had to book a bit late, so there wasn't much of a choice, but for almost $500 for 3 nights what I got is VERY basic: A tiny room with a twin bed NO A/C -beware! They give you a small portable fan which will do nothing on hot days and trust me, there will be some The window, although nice, did not stay open and I had to prop it up with a book They gave me a complimentary water bottle FIRST NIGHT ONLY. I say, when the room costs this much and has no A/C they need to provide a bottle or 2 a day WIFI is free, thank god They give you shampoo, body wash and soap- no conditioner. Just as an FIY The room was clean, bathroom small but nice, water was not exactly hot There's no safe in the room There is a TV The bed was ok, the pillow are definitely the cheap kind I did not have their breakfast. Go to Warwick Way nearby and you will find a bunch of great breakfast options. For dinner try Warwick pub- I loved their fish and chips and I had never been a fan of that dish before! Anyway, I hope this helps.

    « Close to Chelsea Flower Show »

    Going to Chelsea Flower Show so wanted a hotel within walking distance. This was easy to get to from Victoria coach station, just down the road, 20 minutes at my pace. An easy walk to the flower show either along Warwick Road or The Embankment. The locality has good local pubs for food as well as small restaurants. All round a good location to visit the west of the city. only a couple of hundred yards from Pimlico station. Room we had was big enough for our stay although bed was only a standard double (larger couples note). Place was quiet at night and road seemed fairly quiet during the day. Breakfast was not included but we took it on two days. It was up to the norm for other BW's we had stayed in and was reasonably priced.

    I was looking for a reasonable value room near the place for a conference. Had stayed in this area before but not at this hotel. Hotel really easy to find. Not much exercise from the underground station (Pimlico) to the hotel - I should have taken the longer route !! Reception area really nice, clean and welcoming. Staff very helpful. Room small but everything was there and clean and tidy. Location perfect for a walk at night, felt very safe with lots of choices for restaurants and shops. Could not fault this hotel. I paid extra for breakfast but it was low cost by London standards but good quality and helpful staff. I always like to try different hotels but I will struggle to avoid this in the future as it was such an important part of a good trip.

    I stayed here on business for one night and it was a perfect place. Very close to the tube station and a vast array of shops and restaurants just around the corner. Check in was quick and friendly and the staff were warm and welcoming. The room was small but adequate for a single traveller. There were tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary toiletries and adequate space for working. The bed was comfortable and clean and the heat in the room was adequate. The variety at breakfast was good and plentiful. The only "complaint" was that I would have preferred a pot of coffee instead of having to ask for a refill. I would stay here again if presented with the opportunity.

    Positives: Good location for the event my wife was attending; ditto for Victoria & Pimlico tube stations; ditto for helpful local eateries Pleasant and helpful staff generally Recently refurbished, clean, reasonably sized & well-organised bedroom Good television (with radio access) - and it did not default to Channel 1 from your previous choice of station (very good) Breakfast (although at extra cost & not the most extensive of choice) was of a reasonable quality Newspapers provided Negatives: Shower room was very wee (I would have accepted a more compact shower enclosure for somewhere to stand when not in it and for a basin with space to get your hands - or the kettle - under the tap) The basin water would not run to cold (one assumes never quite to straight mains from the blender) Although warned some weeks in advance, there was no dairy-free alternative to milk available for my wife's breakfast (almost everywhere we have been seems to manage this, even at very short notice) The price seemed quite high (but then, it turned out, it was the Marathon weekend!), particularly with an extra £8/head/day for breakfast

The bathroom had a rain shower which was quite big with a few toiletries, fluffy towels and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served on the bottom floor, where you press - 1 in the lift to get to the bottom floor. Breakfast room was clean and had fresh fruit salad, ham, cheese, rolls, scrambled eggs, beans, bacon, hard boiled eggs, cereals etc where you help yourself. Plenty off waitresses about to make sure you had all you needed, we were asked if we would like tea or coffee and toast. Staff very pleasant and whilst basic and a very good selection.

    We stayed at this hotel for 3 consecutive weeks while in London for business purposes. One 2 night stay and 2 overnight stays. On each visit we found all the staff to be welcoming and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and comfortable with complimentary toiletries/tea/coffee and biscuits +2 bottles of water. The only disappointment was that none of this was replenished for the second night but the staff on reception were more than happy to provide us with additional complimentary items if we asked. We found the pillows uncomfortable but again, when we asked at reception for softer pillows, alternative ones were brought to our rooms. The hotel is situated on a busy road so there is some road noise but if this is a problem for you there are quiet rooms at the back. I would definitely return to this hotel.

    « Decent Enough »

    We booked a girls trip to London for a week. There were 4 of us in 2 different rooms. We stayed on the ground level and found the accommodations to be okay. The rooms were small but workable. The one issue we had was lack of electrical outlets. Halfway through our trip, one whole set of plugs stopped working, which meant some juggling when it came time to charge. There was a hairdryer in the room, which was awesome. No one told us breakfast was extra and not included when we booked our rooms. The hotel did have an iron that they let us use. We didn't spend much time in our room so it was okay, but next time I visit London, I will probably upgrade to a slightly nicer hotel. The location was fabulous, we heard no noise at all when sleeping (with windows open), and the staff was nice. However, there aren't a lot of extras, and the bathroom shower is very, very small, so that's why I would upgrade next time.

    Stayed here for 3 nights for work. Staff had cancelled my room by mistake, so not a great start, they recovered a star rating my providing a room. The rooms are nice and clean but small, I had a double which seemed a single, don't expect a bath tub, what you get is half a shower which takes a while for the hot water to appear, the tap to the sink was larger than the sink itself. There is no fridge and no a/c, it did get warm in the night and I was unable to open the window. You can hear the occupiers to the room above walking around on creaking floorboards and also hear the sounds of their flushing water. I was here for 3 nights and the bed sheets were not changed at all, the used towels were changed daily. The breakfast was scrambled eggs (which seemed watered and lacked taste) bacon and beans, cereal, pastry, yogurt and fruit. Staff nice and friendly. This hotel is nice and clean and in great location. I would stay here again but only for the night.

    « Worst hotel experience of my life »

    This is a 1 star hotel pretending to be 3 stars. Every year the hotel says that the hotel made a renovation, but this is a lie. The room did not have a safe - and it really needs one. The TV also did not have a remote control. Next, you enter the lift - I have seen suicide attempts that adhere to more health and safety measures. Seriously - take the stairs. It rather optimistically has a four person maximum capacity - God help you if one of your companions happens to be fat... The 'continental' breakfast was cheap packaged bread, cheap salami, and plastic-wrapped cheese. I didn't try it - I value my life. I can only imagine how it tasted... Yes - it is near to the centre of London; but so are so many other reasonable hotels - they can't all be this bad. Seriously, do not do it; there are prisons that are luxurious by Corona Hotel standards.

    No bar, but 3 pubs within 5 minute's walk, tow of them excellent for ale lovers. Basic but OK breakfast. Very helpful front desk staff.

    Stayed here for three nights. Requested a quiet room on high floor and although small it was modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Agreed with previous comments that if height of summer lack of air con could be a problem. Staff in particular the evening staff were super friendly. The young lady on reception saved the day when the hairdryer broke and brought a replacement in about two minutes flat! The only negative I would say is forget the bacon, weird scrambled egg and value beans. Just improve the selection at the continental breakfast. Would stay there again though as great location close by to some lovely eateries and pubs.

However being located in London and you are tourist then this is okay as you have tube nearby and many touristic places like London Eye . Book in advance to get better rate. Lot of eating option available in 10 minutes walking . We tried Indian restaurant and found it good.

    « Sightseeing in London. A dream realised. »

    Fantastic 5 nights at this lovely hotel. Our room was a standard double, it was a small but absolutely great room. Very comfortable, very clean and a lovely view over to the London Eye and Big Ben. It was lovely to come back to after a long day sight seeing. Such pleasant genuine and helpful staff. Situated in a lovely part of London for access to the centre and theatres and the embankment. Walking distance to Buckingham Palace and St James' Park. A wonderful stay.

    « DISSAPOINTED »

    I was in room 102 which was tiny. No air conditioning and could open the window fully. The bathroom wasn't much bigger than a phone box and the corner sink was so small I could hardly fit both my hands under the tap. Breakfast was no improvement, all that was available at the hot buffet was bacon, scrambled egg and beans. The hotel does not offer any other hot food options at breakfast, probably because they couldn't fit anymore hot plates in the tiny claustrophobic restraint which is located in the basement. Avoid staying here.

    « Great staff sabotaged by dated facility »

    The Corona is billed as a "three star" (from Wikipedia: Properties that deliver a broad range of amenities that exceed above-average accommodation needs. Good quality service, design and physical attributes are typically fit for purpose to match guest expectations). I would say they are knocking at the door of a two-star. The location is excellent: a few minutes walk to either Pimlico or Victoria Station. There are several amenities that are steps away: dry cleaning, convenience stores, restaurants/pubs, groceries. Structurally, the facility is an antique. Floors droop and creak. Conversations in the hallway can be clearly heard in the guest room. Pluming is primitive (2-3 flushes to take care of things) and the shower temperature adjusts itself from scalding to chilling. There is a breakfast offered for £7/person ? adequate and convenient. I am certain they do not have facility to cook on premises but, more so to reheat. On offer: some fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs, bacon, beans, toast/jam, pastries, coffee/tea. The scrambled eggs are weird. I apologize for not being more eloquent but, I think they are reconstituted from a powder. They are slightly watery with a tinge of a granular texture. So there you have it. Weird scrambled eggs. A signature of the Corona. The staff are very accommodating. The front desk provided an extra fan and extension cord to help to cool the room down. We visited and London was going through a bit of a heat wave. That said, most common areas in the hotel (lobby, corridors etc) were considerably cooler than our room. In the dining area, the buffet items were well-tended and topped up and servers were quick to offer and remember your preferences for coffee or tea and white or brown toast. It's the little things that are impressive. The staff also work hard to keep the hotel very clean. Housekeeping services are reliable and professional. The room is clean and well looked after. There is no fridge or dresser. There is a kettle with a choice of tea and instant coffee in the room. There's also a USB jack in the desk to charge phones. Staff are the only "above average" feature in the hotel.

    « Great location, very good service, but not the place to stay during a London heatwave. »

    We used Aeroplan points to book the room, so it did not cost us any money. Therefore, I can't be too critical. If I were on a strict budget, I think I might actually give this hotel four stars. That said, it is very much a three-star hotel. It's in a great location--between two major tube stops: Victoria and Pimlico. The service is actually quite good. We stayed there during a heat wave and the staff was nice enough to give us extra fans and an extension cord, which we sincerely appreciated. They did try their best, but it was still a hotel without air conditioning during a heatwave, so it turned out to be one of the most uncomfortable hotel stays I have ever had. We were on the third and fourth floors, and it was stifling. The rooms were typical of a three-star hotel: no room fridge; no dresser; no room service, etc. The bed was OK--not especially comfortable but not especially uncomfortable, either. The shower scalded you and froze you by turns. The breakfast was adequate. However, if it had not been included with the room, I would never have paid the £7 for it. I would gladly pay £20-£30 pounds more a night for nicer hotel, so I don't think I would stay here again even if I could use points to pay for the hotel.

    Very cramped room. Dark and dingy in basement. Extremely small corner shower and sitting down at the dressing table and opening the drawer with the hairdryer in was a physical impossibility.

    « Very nice hotel at a great location »

    We (2 adults and an 11-year-old child) stayed at Best Western Corona late August for 7 nights. The location couldn't be better. A 10-minute walk from the Victoria Station. There is a very convenient bus #24 half a block away from the hotel. On the parallel street there is a dozen of different, not expensive nice restaurants. The hotel is on the quiet street. Rooms are on the smallish side, but the three of us did not bump into each other. Bathroom is small, but shower is normal size. Everything is very clean and feels fresh. More than adequate breakfast at convenient time. People are nice and helpful. The only negative thing - no air conditioner. There was an ok fan in the room, but the outside weather was in the 80s, and the room was very warm. Our friends stayed at a hotel across the street, they had the same situation.

    « Good value but needs air con. »

    Stayed for two nights in a room facing Belgrave Road. The room was small, but clean and attractive with a comfortable bed, decent shower and good quality TV. Good value for £59/night. Unfortunately the hotel has no air conditioning and the room became stifling by late afternoon. I slept with the window open which helped, but the road is busy, so was happy I'd brought along earplugs. Staff were friendly and efficient. I would stay here again but definitely not during the summer months.

    Booked my stay with late rooms, they didn't pass on the details which caused about a 20 minute delay, I was already tired and made more grumpy, which I sadly passed on to the staff. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful despite my attitude towards them( I did apologise after a shower) The room was clean and functional, with all you could need for a short stay, ironing board and fan supplied!

    « Hottest Day of the Year and No AC »

    The title says it all. This is a nice hotel, located within a 15 minute walk from Victoria Coach Station & close to the Pimlico tube stop. It has clean, small rooms & friendly, helpful staff. But I cannot recommend this hotel in the summer on the chance a hot day and night may occur. London had a sweltering 93 degrees F. (over 30 degrees C.) and we roasted without AC. Granted it is uncomfortable riding the unairconditioned tube in those circumstances -- but trying to sleep in a hotel room like that? Try it in a different season.

    I was solo female traveler looking for a place to stay the night in London. This hotel was easy to get to from the Tube.It is only 2 blocks away from the Pimlico Station making it easy to get to from the airport and for sight seeing. I was in a single room that was small but provided me everything I needed. I also ordered take-away and the front desk called me when it arrived. Also if you arrive before check-in you can store your luggage with the front desk. I would stay here again.

The bathrooms are very clean but compact. I consider it to be reasonably priced and will always check availability when stopping over.

The breakfast is a buffet style with enough choice to choose from including bacon, eggs and beans along with a good selection of continental food. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. One of our party had asked for porridge which the hotel do not provide, only to have it presented to him at breakfast the next day. Good location for Pimlico tube and Victoria train/coach station with plenty of local restaurants nearby too.

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and it was a great hotel.

The hotel is in a great neighborhood near many pubs and coffee shops.

    « Decent Hotel, Except for the Bathroom »

    As others have mentioned, we found the Best Western Corona to be a fine hotel for exploring London. The Pimlico Underground station is only about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The surrounding neighborhood is safe and the hotel staff is quite pleasant. The only negative was the bathroom. It is the smallest I've ever encountered. As you can see in the accompanying photo, only a child would be able to sit properly on the toilet due to the position of the sink plumbing. Adults have to use an awkward sideways pose. There is a stand-up shower, but it is difficult for an adult-sized individual to turn around when inside. They are apparently doing some renovations, so perhaps this will be fixed in time.

    « Fine hotel for exploring London »

    This was my first stay on a two-week tour of Britain. I had a small room at the top of a landing. The room was small (not unexpectedly so) but adequate for a single traveler. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom well appointed. The front desk staff were incredibly nice -- even printing out my tickets to the Tower of London that I had purchased online through my phone. This hotel is on a street that is filled with tourist hotels (some looking shabbier than the Best Western), and tourists wheeling oversized roller bags to and from Victoria Station were a common site. Get off the main thoroughfare and there's enough in Pimlico to explore -- not to mention it's extremely well located to explore the rest of the city. I would like to give a plug for Cask Pub & Kitchen, an unassuming pub around the corner from this hotel with a very friendly staff and selection of excellent beers.

    « Absolute shambles »

    Pre-booked and paid 5 months ago, booking confirmed by phone the day before travel. On arrival the dis-interested reception staff informed us that 'the system' had re-allocated our rooms, and we were 'bumped' to a horrible B and B in Earl's Court, for which we were meant to be grateful. A hotel and company with no concept of customer care. We will avoid Great Western in the future.

    « Excellent location, friendly staff, nice room »

    I spent four nights here with my mother. We arrived before check-in time so our room wasn't ready, but we could leave our luggage at the hotel, which worked fine for us. When we got back in the evening, the check in process went smoothly. Our room was in the lower ground floor, close but not next to the breakfast room. The room was compact but very nice, safe, clean and quiet. The room had free wi-fi, which worked fine. There was also a coffee maker in the room, which was a nice touch. When traveling, I don't need a large room because I'm mostly just going to sleep there. The location of the hotel is excellent. Pimlico is a very nice area with plenty of restaurants. The Pimlico tube station is about five minutes away and the larger Victoria Station is only ten minutes away. It takes about 20-30 minutes to walk to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. The breakfast was good. There were croissants, pastries, fruit, cereal, and eggs, beans, and bacon... The breakfast staff also asked if we would like some toast (white or brown), and whether we would prefer coffee or tea. On the day of our departure we had to leave very early, before breakfast time, but the staff was kind enough to bring a limited but very satisfying breakfast to our room. Overall, Best Western Corona is a nice, clean, safe hotel in a beautiful area with exceptionally friendly staff. I would definitely come back to this hotel.

    Very convenient for working in Westminster - only a 15-20 walk to meeting near Westminster Abbey. Double room had two single beds and a very comfy double bed - huge room, windows a bit grubby on outside but probably due to renovations. No view except of building rubble - but very quiet being LG room, had windows open all night and slept like a log. Nice hotel different from the usual corporate look - had some character about it Breakfast had good enough choice between continental and cooked scrambled eggs, bacon beans etc. Breakfast staff exceptionally friendly and very attentive for coffee tea and toast and top-ups - much better than being in a Travelodge. #24hr free WiFi is a real bonus, much better than just 30mins - logical!

    « Preferred hotel on Belgrave Road »

    I regularly stay in London and must have tried most hotels on this road; the Corona is the only one I want to stay in again..in fact must have stayed a dozen or so times now. The price is good for the area and must be busy as it isn't always available on our works hotel booking system. Single rooms are quite small but, in my opinion, perfectly adequate. Nice to have free WiFi and toiletries. Rooms at front of hotel can be noisier due to road noise but that's common to many hotels. I do keep intending to ask for a room at the back of the hotel to compare but forget each time! Breakfast has always been ok. Not a 'full' English but hot choices are tasty...do wish they would use thicker bread for toast though...hint hint! Will definitely be back.

The tube has gotten ridiculously expensive in London Actually London is the most expensive city I've ever been to and much more so than when I visited before( relative to other places etc)this hotel is literally on a street lined with boutiquish hotels with names like best western so lots of choices. You can walk to bucking ham from here and there are lots of shops and restaurants and English pubs nearby. Careful, places close early and are often closed Sunday which we thought bring in such a touristy area was strange.

    « Great Experience »

    My sister and I stayed at the Best Western Corona while spending a few days in London. We chose this hotel because it seemed to have a central location, reasonable price, and positive past experiences with other Best Western hotels. This hotel was clean and very adequate for our needs. Our room was on the below ground floor and featured a twin bed, double bed, and private bathroom. The room was definitely smaller than what you would get in the US, but we were expecting that, so it was not an issue. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is within walking distance to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and the London Eye. We were also able to walk back from the area around the Tower of London, although it might be a little far for some people. It is very convenient to get to the tube from the hotel, which made getting to/from Heathrow airport a breeze. My only complaint was that the bed was a little too firm for me and caused some back discomfort; however, my sister thought hers was comfortable and did not have an issue. I would consider staying at this hotel again and would recommend it to others.

The staff was really kind, helpful and proffessional! We almost forgot a handbag on our leaving day and the cleaners took it to the reception so that they could warn us about the situation! They were awesome! The room (we stayed in a triple) was very comfortable, nice, clean and it had all the services needed, from a nice,equipped bathroom to complimentary tea,water and buscuits. The only bad thing about our stay was the fact that, on our first morning, they had to repair the window of the room next door, so we had a noisy wake-up alarm. However, everything else is far worth a slight trouble and we recommend the Best Western Corona for London stays!! We most certainly will be coming back for more!!

The water in the room was warm, my make up had melted and even the shower & tap water didn't go cold! I rang reception at 11:30pm after I couldn't take it anymore and he said the heat was due to the bedroom underneath me having their heating on....I have never heard of anything more ridiculous in my life. At 1:30am when I still couldn't get to sleep I tried a cold shower but this is the not hotel in the world to never not have a hot shower.

One small window, no air con. The hotel is situated on a busy road. when we got back later that evening the room was warm despite leaving the window wide open. The noise from the street was loud, had to put up with someone loud music from a neigh bout and the local residents shouting in the street. If you closed the window , you roasted. Double glazing and air con would be good. Breakfast was poor in my opinion. No fresh fruit, came out of a tin, cooked food was bacon, baked beans and scrambled egg. There was no option to have a poached or fried egg. Hotel is near to a tube station and a short walk to the river. Doubt we will stay here again,shame really

    The Corona Hotel is situated on Belgrave Road, London where there is plenty of competition for similar hotels. Some very good and some very poor. It is in a great location for Central London if sightseeing with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The Corona is certainly very comfortable and perhaps at the better end of the range. A few steps to negotiate on entry but a very warm welcome at reception and easy check-in. My room was on the ground floor at the top of the stairs that lead to the breakfast dining area. The room was a good size, comfortable and well reasonably well equipped. The bathroom was clean and modernised although space was at a premium when using the toilet as one has the sink almost on one's lap forcing a slight sideways manoeuvre when seated. Ihad to be up relatively early for work however a lie-in may not be possible for all as one can hear noise from the breakfast guests as they descend the stairs outside my hotel room door and eat their breakfasts. Neither were a particular problem to me and I would not hesitate in staying there again on my frequent trips to London.

Rubbish view out of the window, in fact a view of rubbish. That said, the room was clean and reasonably well equipped - no fridge though. I had good wifi throughout my stay, easily good enough for Facetime or Skype. The bathroom was adequate, if a bit small. I reckon the room would be a squeeze for two with suitcases and stuff, but absolutely fine for me. I needed to leave early one day 30 mins before breakfast and the hotel delivered me room service - excellent customer service thank you. My room was completely quiet but other colleagues had rooms at the front on higher floors and weren't as impressed. Guess you need to be at the back or underground; I thought £120 was a bit steep.

    Fantastic little hotel. Clean as a whistle. Reception staff very friendly, helpful & polite. Breakfast was lovely & breakfast staff just as nice as the reception staff. Room had everything I needed. Very comfy bed. Amazing power shower. I was in room 111 for 2 nights. I would recommend it & I would definitely use this hotel again.

    « Good value for money and good location »

    We stayed at this hotel for a couple of night during Easter. The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom was relatively spacious. Staff were all polite and friendly. Ideal location for the tube (less than 5 minute walk to Pimlico station and maybe 15 minutes to Victoria). If we were staying in London again we would definitely look at stopping here again.

    « Avoid it if you are 5 foot 7 or over »

    This is a very small , tidy , neat hotel that would generally fit a family of dwarfs ! I have never stayed in a smaller room before or have eaten in a smaller restaurant . Nevertheless it is modernised and clean . Windows are not double glazed so it's a bit noisy but not unbearable

    « Excellent staff, spotless but noisy traffic meant poor sleep »

    Well located in Belgravia 10 minutes walk from the Thames. Reception staff were very attentive. Room and hotel were spotless. No evening meals available. My only gripe is that the windows were old fashioned sash single glazed, probably due yo conservation area and the noise from the traffic from 5am meant. Sleep was disturbed every night

    « Great location and value! »

    We booked a basic suite for 2 nights, Friday-Sunday. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to Victoria Station, 20 minute walk to Buckingham Palace, 30 minutes to Big Ben/London Eye, Convent Garden/Soho. Very convenient location, beautiful neighborhood. We felt very safe, and had a pleasant stay here. We chose to not spend money on breakfast, so our room was discounted. The room was ok, located in the basement of the hotel - so the view was of the alleyway, but we didn't care. We spent the majority of the days outside of the hotel, and only used it for sleep and shower. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a clean, safe, and cheap option while in London. Oh, wi-fi was included, but since we were in the basement, it was a bit spotty.

    « Overbooked, moved to a 2* b&b no compensation »

    I booked 2 night stay for a work trip at the best western as its a brand name that I trust to have a fairly decent standard for cleanliness, size etc. On arrival they state they've overbooked so transfer me over the road to a 2* b&b which is cheap shoddy and dirty. Looking online cheaper and lower rated. Thanks best western, trust gone. It's not about the money as my work are paying anyway however I would expect from the customer service that I'm transferred at a minimum to the same standard of accommodation.

    Good location, friendly helpful staff and clean hotel. Excellent position for Underground and local friendly restaurants and bars. Quiet area of London, perfect to get away from hustle and bustle. Would definitely return.

    « A pleasant stay in a convenient location »

    My friends and I stayed one night in single rooms. These rooms were small, with single beds, but perfectly adequate. Likewise the bathrooms were small but everything was clean. There was free wifi, and tea and coffee. The only drawback was the traffic noise, it wasn't bad, but I'm use to complete silence at night. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

    « Alright Hotel! »

    Stayed for a weekend in January. Bedroom layout badly designed. Couldn't see the TV from the beds! Breakfast was a little disapointing, not replenished when there was still guests coming for breakfast. A place to sleep and handy for tube and walking into town.

    « Worst stay ever!! »

    It is currently 3:20am and can't wait to go home in the morning. Can't sleep due to the banging of the fake chained up "balcony" door!! And this room is smaller than my bedroom at home. The price paid for this is ridiculous. Never ever ever again!!

    « A hidden gem »

    I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The hotel looks freshly decorated, it is bright, airy and clean throughout and has a quality feel with a high standard of fittings in the room. As usual in London the room (single) was quite small but it didn't feel cramped. Lots of lighting and space to work. A great shower! The free wi-fi works well with a strong signal and the TV has all the standard Freeview channels. There are USB charging points in the desk and plenty of free sockets for work. Over the road there is a Pizza Express and an Indian restaurant. The hotel is under 5 minutes walk from Pimlico tube station, about 10-15 minutes walk to the river and about 10-15 minutes by tube from central London areas. The staff were all friendly and helpful with no wait for anything. The breakfast was delicious. A full range of cold items are available, as well as bacon, egg and beans. Breakfast is served in a small dining area hidden in the basement. Breakfast doesn't start until 7am though so you'll miss it if leaving early. The only tiny criticism is the noise. Somewhat unavoidable in London, but there is some noise from the road outside and the internal noise travels quite a lot too. It wasn't a great problem but if you need your silence to sleep you might find it a bit irritating. I would definitely stay here again, even if working elsewhere in London as it's so well connected.

    « Comforting for nights stay »

    I loved this hotel! Its all I can say I stayed for one night to see Stonehenge. I took coach from Victoria Coach Station which is only a 10 min walk from hotel. There is also convenience of local bus service. There are restaurants nearby as well.

    « Bring ear plugs »

    Stayed here for one night in a twin room for business trip. The good things - The hotel is situated about 10 minutes walk from Victoria tube station so pretty easy to get to and from transport. Room was LG5, which was a comfortable size, clean and well decorated. The bathroom was nice and the shower in the morning was great. The bad things - LG05 is right next to the eating area which comes alive at around 6:30 when the staff begin preparing for breakfast. Pans clatter, people talking to each other and then on goes the radio. None of this would be a problem if the door to the eating area was to remain closed or the bedroom door were not paper thin. Bring ear plugs or you will be awake before you want to be. The breakfast was quite limited and not particularly nice either - I think the eggs were powdered and had a strange consistency, like mashed potato.

    « Great Staff, Small Rooms »

    I was met by a friendly smile and efficient booking in process. I had a double room with no view and when I opened the curtains the air vents were stuffed with toilet paper? The room was very small but reasonably well laid out, the odd stool was stuffed into the only available space for it, it couldn't really be used unless you put your feet on the bed?? Room rate was reasonable for the area. Good access to a couple of pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about but again friendly service.

    Very nice place, clean and warm. Very good services. Very good location, just 15 minutes walk to Big Ben, and 5 minutes to Victoria station. Around area are a lot of shops and rrstaurants. Price is guaranteed.

    « Good for the price »

    A little far from the main sights but not bad if you can walk everywhere. It is right next to a station on the tube so if you are public transit savvy it's a good location - you get what you pay for. Biggest disappointment was the wi-fi, it didn't work in our room and they couldn't get it fixed for the duration of our stay (3 days) but really not the biggest deal... when I'm on vacation, wi-fi is not life or death.. we just had to walk to the lobby to use it which was inconvenient. For a budget hotel, not bad at all. I'd stay here again.

    « Not bad »

    Checked in by friendly staff, warned that hotel was being renovated! Carpet grippers, carpet up and smell of paint was a warning but ground floor room at back was quiet and big enough. Wireless was free and good speed. Free paper. Free bottled water. Would stay again. Close to loads of places to eat and drink. Close to Victoria for transport links.

    « Fit for deaf midgets »

    This newly refurbished hotel was clean and tidy, and that's the best one can say of it. The window was not double glazed, hence the traffic from the street was very audible; the room, bathroom and bed were exceedingly tiny, fit for midgets. At breakfast, tea and coffee were awful. Overall, an expensively annoying experience.

    « Always good »

    I've been staying here on and off for the last 15 years or so: so a review is well overdue! I have always found this a consistently good place to stay whether for business or leisure. It's location is excellent for getting around London whether by bus 24 which goes everywhere any visitor might want to go including Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Downing Street, Horseguards Parade and Trafalgar Square to name but a few; or tube from Pimlico/Victoria or National Rail from Victoria. It's the nearest place to living in a village with friendly pubs and restaurants all around the hotel's location. Bedrooms are comfortable and well-serviced, quieter at the back with views over London on the higher floors. Staff excellent as is breakfast. No bar but not needed with numerous pubs and wine bars within walking distance. Highly recommended but not if I can't get a room!

    Upon arrival we knew we were early, the gentleman at reception was very friendly and we left our bags with no problem at all. Checked in later and we were directed to our room which was modern, comfortable and clean. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Only downside was housekeeping knocking on the door at 8.15am on a Saturday morning! Breakfast was okay, limited choice but suffice. The location is great within walking distance to an underground station.

    « best western in uk and france »

    very satisfied. We stayed in uk and france at best western and very happy and satisfied with the staff and hotels overall. The only thing is the showers, we have very little water and it gets cold and hot at times which can be a pain as back home in Australia plumbing is not a problem at all so we are used to have big showers with big flow of water and non changing temperature. But would recommend best western to anyone traveling, value for money and locations are great!

    The hotel is simple, but clean and comfortable. The room is really small as usual in London, offers free wifi a flat tv 32" and breakfast, personnel is kind and available to provide informations to the guest. The location of the hotel is walking distance from Victoria station and close to Pimlico metro station.

    « Small but comfortable, quiet and convenient »

    Just a short walk to the tube or bus from this small hotel located just a few blocks from Victoria station. Very reasonably priced and staff was extremely helpful! Wireless Internet was a little weak, but there is a computer in the lobby that was free to guests that could be used to print on.

    « First trip to London »

    Stayed here for my first trip to London + it was a great base to go and explore! Pimlico station 5 minute walk - 2 minutes on the tube to Victoria where there are restaurants and theatres and not long to get to all the attractions like Big Ben, London Eye etc. Hotel was easy to find & staff were pleasant. Room was lovely with a beautiful view of the London Eye, Big Ben and Houses of Parliament. Only downside was the bathroom was tiny! Expected in London I suppose but it really was small. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. Would like to have wifi in bedrooms not just the reception area. They very kindly looked after our luggage all day after we had checked out which was extremely useful. Will definitely book again when visiting London again in the future!

    « one night business stay »

    I was a little concerned when directed to a lower ground floor room but I have to say the room was spacious and spotlessly clean. the bathroom, whilst very compact was fine. as I was travelling alone there was no problem but the room was set up with one double and 2 single beds and I imagine the size of the bathroom would have presented an issue if the room had been full. the room service was good and the menu and not extortionate and wifi was free with a good signal whic is not necessarily the case with many hotels, especially in this areas of London. The breakfast likewise was good. would stay again.

    We chose this hotel for a three night break after reading good reviews about the location and room cleanliness. We were not disappointed. Really handy for Pimlico tube station, the room was great and the staff could not be more helpful. We had an issue with the shower where no cold water came in. We advised reception in the morning and it was fixed when we returned later in the day. Recommended. Would certainly return to this hotel.

    « Great location and super Thai Restaurant around the corner. »

    Service was excellent and reception couldn't do enough to help during my stay. Quality of room good- clean and modern with everything you need. While others have mentioned a poor breakfast I disagree, it is marketed as continental but has scrambled eggs, bacon and beans for those that want a hot breakfast. Good little find for the price and central location. If you like Thai food then there is an amazing restaurant just around the corner which is well worth a visit.

    « Expensive but two stars pension »

    I would not recommend this hotel apart from the position close to Victoria and Pimlico tube station. Staff is average the room extremely small, breakfast very basic. Next time I will look for other solutions, 150 euro a night is too much for this hotel.

    « Disappointing »

    Great location but that is about it. Room was shabby although I understand they are refurbishing. 'Free' WIFI but it did not extend its reach to my room. Answer come down to reception area. This is 2015! The final straw was the breakfast - for the first time in my life I was unable to eat a sausage. This really should be so much better!

    Brilliant location and a nice clean room. I was in the basement which meant I had limited mobile phone signal and I also couldn't connect go to Internet but as I was out and about I didn't investigate this further with the hotel. Pleasant staff who were happy to assist. Breakfast was basic..... Limited hot choice, scrambled egg was vile! Perfect location for my workplace when in London overnight though so will stay again!

    « Not bad, but basic! »

    We had 2 double rooms and 1 triple. Doubles were tiny - bedroom and bathroom, very basic dated, but adequate for an overnight stay when all you'll be doing is using it to sleep, triple however was at least 4 times the size and like a suite in comparison. Not your typical best western.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    I was a little concerned since i read the reviews on the way to the hotel. However i had a family room 109 and it was very quiet and very nicely furnished. New carpets throughout. Could imagine it would be hot in summer as only one small window behindthe single bed. Breakfast ok not spectacular. Few health and safety issues need sorting. Firedoor on stairs sticks open on the new carpet . Was open my entire stay and in the breakfast room there is a table in front of the fire exit. But overall a very nice comfortable and clean hotel.
