    We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express Victoria from December 15, 2023 through December 22, 2023 and were thoroughly delighted with both the extraordinary staff and an amazing location. The neighborhood is lovely, walking distance to Victoria Station and you have to try George’s Tavern! |When we first arrived, there was a little mix up with our rooms, but we were upgraded beautifully by the hard working staff. The view from room 502 is excellent! The breakfast room was very good, pretty much what we expect from this hotel chain. When it was time to move on to Paris, the helpful staff arranged van transport to the Eurostar train station.|The location was central for everything we came to London to see, and the staff was helpful with that as well. Thank you again to the entire staff.

    Good hotel for the price. We were supposed to stay in a room with a double bed and a sofa bed, but they complimented us and gave us a large room with a double bed and two single beds, big and comfortable. The gluten-free breakfast option was just cornflakes, bread and sausage, and in general the breakfast was poor. The staff was kind. The location is very good.
