My husband and I are going to be in London for 24 hours in October. We are looking for an affordable B&B pretty centrally located. We were thingking about the Belgravia neighborhood by the Victoria Station. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a good B&B to stay in there or is there a better area we should stay in? Thanks!
Annie, hi from Portland. I am in the process of planning our next trip to UK and Paris and I have always stayed in the Kensington/Earl's Court area, This time after reading about 400 thousand reviews, I am in communications with Adriano at Gauden House http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d2654343-r168487492-Gauden_House_a_boutique_guest_house-London_England.html While renting a room or two from a home owner may not be your cuppa, I suggest you read through some of these reviews for his home, it is an inexpensive opportunity that should be considered. Bon Voyage
Annie, last week I stayed the the B+B Belgravia on Ebury Street just a block away from Victoria. I wound up with one for their studio rooms as the others were booked. It was Ok. The room was clean, the carpet in the hall was a little soiled. The location was perfect for me. I was staying 2 nights and had a reservation to see the Buckingham Palace State rooms and wanted to be able to walk so this fit the bill. It got fairly good reviews on TA altho I did notice right before I left there were more negative reviews up. The studios have a fridge which they stock with a continental breakfast which was fine. Ebury St is fairly busy but the traffic died down about midnight. If I stayed there again I would ask for a room away from the street. Would I stay there again? Probably, especially if I wanted to be in this neighborhood. There are a number of hotels on this street.
