Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, The Grosvenor Hotel has been restored to its former glory, revealing stunning original features that date back to 1862. A Listed building, it retains its distinctive Victorian architecture and character, yet offers guests all the comforts of a 21st Century luxury hotel. Our fully refurbished bedrooms offer a quiet, spacious and comfortable retreat from the bustle of London and the adjoining Victoria mainline station. All bedrooms feature rainfall showers and air conditioning. A large plasma-screen TV, Bose IPod docking stations with surround sound and WIFI access is available in all rooms for guest entertainment. All guests have use of our gym on the 7th floor. The Brasserie bar and restaurant, open all day, is the perfect place for an informal get together. Our traditional Lounge is a must for a full afternoon tea treat. Reunion, our latest addition, is a chic Champagne and Cocktail bar favored by many in the area. For a genuine Cantonese experience, try a meal in the Grand Imperial London. Its superb location is within walking distance of many of London's landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. Getting around is easy too; Victoria mainline, Underground and bus stations are close by. The Grosvenor is a non-smoking hotel.

Beautiful and Grand!

Despite being disappointed that breakfast was not included in our reservation, even though I thought it was, this hotel was worth staying at for our 5 day sightseeing tour of London. The staff was very courteous, available and always had a smile. It was very expensive if you wanted to dine in the hotel or have a drink.

Quiet oasis in a noisy neighborhood

The entry to the Grosvenor is old world and elegant, a welcome retreat coming off the noisy, extremely crowded and somewhat seedy streets of Victoria. The entry is right by several popular bus stops, so be prepared to be a salmon swimming upstream every time you exit. Use the direct door into the station when possible. That said, it's well located for museums, Knightsbridge, parks, and more. Our room was small but very comfortable and well appointed. Comfortable bed and one slightly less comfortable chair. Tiny bathroom, but the rainfall shower head (along with a handheld) made up for it! Dropdown menu only offers 2012 as when we stayed; it was 2013.

Great location

Gatwick Express arrived directly from Gatwick airport to Victory London station in 30mins. This Victory station is linked to the Hotel. Direct entrance to the hotel basement via the train station. Within the train station, there is subway. Right next to train station, there is a big bus station. Easy to commute around and lots of shops within the station. i.e. food, supermarket, bakery etc. Walking distance to Buckingham Palace but taking bus using Oyster card is easier and less tiring. Lots of bus leave from the station bus stops. Can travel using 1 day travel card or use Oyster card. It is very much cheaper to travel using oyster card (store value) than paying by cash (buy fm machine at each us stop).

Fabulous stay at the Grosvenor

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grosvenor. With it being the Christmas holiday they offered us a free upgrade. The room was fabulous, spacious, clean, contempory and very quiet. I loved how it was extremely close to everything we needed, such as Victoria station, and an easy walk to many of sites. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly (especially Wesley). We would definitely recommend the hotel.

Quick London visit

The location of the Victoria station being directly below the hotel with an entrance within the station is most convenient. If you are flying out of Gatwick the Gatwick express train is literally at your doorstep.

Grosvenor Hotel is spectacular!

Conveniently located next to Victoria Station, the Grosvenor is within very easy walking distance of Buckingham Palace, St. James Park, Churchill War Rooms as well as Big Ben and Parliament. The staff is superb, very accommodating and concerned that each guest is taken care of very well. The buffet breakfast is terrific; didn't even need to eat lunch as the selection is amazingly diverse and beautifully prepared for both the palate and the eye. We would stay at the Grosvenor anytime we are in London.
