Lodging Near Victoria Station in London

We will be arriving on our first trip to London in Aug. '14 and was wondering if anyone has recommendations for a reasonably priced B&B, or hotel nearby W or E of Victoria Station. We prefer clean and quaint B&B in a safe area (recommendations?), but if someone has another good option other than B&B, we sure are open for that information as well. Thank you, everyone!

Howard,

just so you know, i feel that the area around Victoria station in general, safe. Ive walked around at late night and really too early morning. I dont know of any B&Bs since i travel solo. HOwever, someone pointed out there is a dorm across the street on the East side of the station. dont know of cost or how well furnished they are, but they are a dorm room. the next time im in London, im going to try and get a room there if they have one avaiable.

happy trails and "mind the gap"

Howard,

One popular hotel / B&B in that area is the Lime Tree Hotel which is on Ebury Street in the Victoria Station / Belgravia area. You'll have to check the prices to determine if it's "reasonably priced" for your criteria.

I've found that area to be somewhat on the posh side and quite safe. I've also walked around quite late in the evening without any problems at all.

Cheers!

We've stayed numerous times in the past at The Cherry Court Hotel, which is on a side street near Victoria Station and the bus station. It is a small family run hotel, inexpensive, clean, safe and the Patels are lovely and helpful.

I like Luna and Simone. Not fancy, but the brothers who run it are very helpful, breakfast is adequate, location can't be beat. The area has lots of restaurants, atm's, pubs, grocery store, etc. Also a major bus line goes right by the front door.

It has been a few years but we have stayed at the Winchester Hotel. Nice, typical English breakfast. Have also stayed at the Lime Tree but it was more expensive but very nice.

I agree with Laurie's suggestion--Luna & Simone for hotel!! This was my first trip to London too, and Luna & Simone was perfect.... Quiet, friendly, clean, and great breakfast. Bus stop right out front. Many restaurants nearby--be sure and try Grumbles for dinner!

I agree with Karen. Grumbles was one of the highlights of the Luna and Simone neighborhood for me.

Thanks everone for your assistance. Jan and I decided to go with the majority and booked Luna & Simone. Grumbles is now added to our developing itinerary. We are looking forward to planning the rest of our trip which includes York, Edinburgh, and a hop to Glasgow for our flight back to the states.
