Stayed here for one night whilst attending a gig at Brixton Academy. The hotel is pretty basic and a bit dated, but it did the job, as we were just using the room to get ready and sleep in. My main complaint, was that the room was very hot and we could not sleep. Opened the windows, but the noise from the traffic was horrendous, that's not the hotel's fault though. The staff were lovely I must say, I probably would stay again, if attending a gig in Brixton, mainly due to the price. If you're looking for luxury though, I would look for somewhere else.
Thought we would book this hotel for a one night stay as the reviews seemed average. However, I would avoid at all costs. I’m not one to be fussy about hotels, but this hotel had no positives. The room we were put in seemed okay at first, with no problems, very small but this was not an issue. However, it soon became obvious that when you leaned back on the wall behind the bed, the bed completely moved as it was on wheels. At one point the bed completely rolled forwards and what was underneath was disgusting. Dust, dirty socks and sweets and all sorts. I would never look for problems in a hotel, but as we happened to see this, it was disgusting and clearly hadn’t been cleaned for a long time. The room was also horribly hot and you get given one poor fan which didn’t really do much. Without wanting complain as we were only there for one night, we went to the breakfast in the morning. It was awful, a few pieces of old cheese and ham and some pastries. Ended up eating nothing and leaving. This hotel seriously isn’t worth it, I know it is cheap but I would recommend staying elsewhere for a bit of comfort.
If you like to spen money on other then lots of stars hotels, then this is the place for you. Its not big rooms. But what a location. Just a few steps for victoria station. And the staff is great too!
LOCATION: good, central south London, 4 minutes from Underground station. Buses along road. 5 minutes from Oval cricket ground. Cafes in area; 24-hour store across road. ACCESS: mobility limitations may be a problem. Hotel is up stairs, and I don't know if there are arrangements for those with limited mobility. STAFF: polite and pleasant but not very helpful. RECEPTION: okay. Only the small lobby to leave bags before check-in or after check-out. ROOM: it was very hot, with only a table fan to cool it. Clean, bit shabby. Bed comfortable. Safe door wouldn't open, even though the locking mechanism worked. Reception immediately sent someone, who hardly spoke English, and could only open it by prying the door with a screwdriver. I improvised by prying the safe door open with the plastic room card. Sound insulation didn't seem great, but place was quiet. BATHROOM was clean, and the only problem was that to get warm shower water I had to turn it on at full blast. Poor water control. WI-FI: good nearly all of the time. BREAKFAST: cold, somewhat limited, but have as much as you want. I saw cereals, granola, cheese and cold cuts, rolls, jams, bread slices, fruit, hot drinks, fruit juice. I had two quite satisfactory breakfasts there. Dining room is small and there was barely room for everyone. VALUE FOR MONEY: reasonable considering its central London location. IN SUMMARY, fine for a short stay in central London if you accept the limitations ahead of time. Main problem is the hot room.
Great location for the Oval Cricket Ground and Oval Tube Station. However the price increases for games!! They rate themselves on booking.com as a 4 star hotel, I can’t see that myself. We had a family room, one small double bed and two singles were crammed into a small room - just enough room to get around the beds. The rooms were incredibly hot - it really needs some better ventilation. There was a fan in the room but this did very little. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfy. I suspect the beds were new as there was a massive pile of mattresses outside the breakfast room window. The breakfast room is small and on the lowest floor, it’s small. Don’t worry though you won’t be there long as the breakfast was poor. One of the worst inclusive breakfasts I’ve seen. I didn’t eat anything. Tried a coffee, but it didn’t taste good. If you want somewhere to get your head down before a cricket game, then this is fine. Don’t expect much and you won’t be disappointed but this isn’t 4 star accommodation. Get breakfast somewhere else.
My daughter and I stayed at the Belgrave hotel for 6 nights. We expected clean basic accommodations with a decent breakfast and that's exactly what we got. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and the breakfast choices were good. There was also a very nice restaurant across the street as well as takeout restaurants and the Brown Derby Pub which had good food all within a few steps from the hotel. The Belgeave Hotel is also in a great location for getting around London with an underground station also just steps away. In all, we were happy with our stay at the Belgrave Hotel and would recommend to anyone traveling on a budget.
I have spent 3 nights in the hotel. I have been assigned a double room with separate beds. Hotel is nothing special and quality of interior is low/medium. But enough for a 3* hotel, in a good position in London for tourists. Even breakfast was good enough, staff very kind. It has all what needed for a short stay in London and, with a good price offer, it's definitely a suggested solution.
This was a good choice. Underground is literally 2min walk, just across the street is 24hr open store. Hotel is..just ok. Clean and with amenities and coffe/tea set up in the room. Staff very nice,but they dont seem like they are passing to each other infos from shift to shift. Our room was pretty small and loud because facing the street but since we literally just slept there it was fine. But!!!!!! What I have to emphasis is that for breakfast(which is so basic and rather poor but still ok for a bite before heading to the city) there was no eggs!!!! I have never ever been anywhere where there was no eggs for breakfast, there was no possibility to get them even on request! Defenetly they have to add eggs, even boiled only which is so easy. View from the eating area is awful - somekind of backyard full of old mattress. I dont know what is actual price for this hotel, I got it with Trivago,Agora(by the way definetly I recommend this app) discount,but even if is in zone 1, in London..maybe the price dont match 3* hotel. I will be given 4* as a review just because nice service 1st night when we arrived and receptions was kind and borrowed us plug to charge our phones and housekeeping prop new towels when I asked since I did not wanted service.
This was my second stay at this hotel and I will return again when next working in the area. After a long day travelling down to London, walking and tubing all over the place between jobs all I am really after is peace and quiet, a shower and comfy bed. This hotel delivers all that along with a very warm welcome that hands down beats the other hotels I stay at. The guys on the reception desk are super friendly and super helpful, I can't say enough good things about the staff. There is a couple of decent takeaway places just across the road along with reasonably priced off licences selling chilled beer and wine, snacks etc. The Brown Derby pub across the road also does good beers and I think it may do food also. There is a good sit in Indian restaurant not far away also. After a long day I'm usually more in the mood for a takeaway in my room than waiting on a table served meal. On returning to the hotel with my takeaway I was offered plates and cutlery to use with it. Can't argue with that for good service. I'm not normally a breakfast eating person. At most I will have a bit of toast and a coffee. Hence why I don't normally bother as most hotels want £10-£15 for breakfast. The continental breakfast included at the Belgrave is more than ample to set you up for the day. Toast, cereal, pastries, yoghurts, fresh fruit, hams/cheese etc. This is a good honest hotel at a spectactulae price in a great location. I am glad such places still exist. Great job guys.
I was traveling for work and I stayed at the Belgrave for 3 nights. The room was clean and nice and the staff was great. It is close to many restaurants and theaters in walking distance and the metro y also close by. I need to mention also the bed because it was exceptional.
