Best Hotels in Victoria
The Rubens at The Palace
The grand entrance to Rubens at The Palace certainly looks like it’s fit for royalty. Overlooking Buckingham Palace, Rubens oozes every bit of grandeur you would expect inside and out.
Downstairs is filled with lavish dining rooms with chandeliers, soft red velvet chairs, and a glass-panelled lounge. And, if you think that’s impressive, head up to the bedrooms you’ll be greeted with homely comforts in individually-designed rooms.
Everything at this Victoria hotel is bold, from the striped wallpaper to standout blue and yellow hues. Personal service is also high on the agenda and Rubens goes out of its way to cater to all guest’s needs.
Eccleston Square Hotel
Sitting in an award-winning residential square, Eccleston Square Hotel makes for the perfect Central London getaway.
Why, we hear you ask? Well, bordering Belgravia and Victoria, you’ll have an abundance of fancy bars and restaurants to choose from.
The minimal rooms still manage to feel cosy, which is just what you need after pounding the busy London streets. Luxury marble bathrooms include a hidden TV in the bathroom mirror keeping you entertained at all times.
Some of the gorgeous rooms also have balconies – which makes for a fancy morning coffee spot, if you ask us.
The Clermont Victoria
Situated in the heart of Victoria, The Clermont Victoria oozes Victorian opulence. The Grade-II listed railway hotel is located next to Victoria station and ticks our boxes for location and decor.
From the outside, The Clermont is a symmetrical building with grand architectural designs and matching windows.
Inside is just as fancy, of course. The entrance has bifurcated staircases and instantly you feel like a Harry Potter extra. If you look up you’ll notice exquisite pillars and a crystalised chandelier.
The bedrooms, however, are a little more paired back. They take a more minimalist approach, which we love. Settle into Egyptian cotton beds and pop some music on using the in-room docking station to make the most out of your stay.
CitizenM London Victoria
Citizen M hotel is a place to work, play and relax. Neighbouring Buckingham Palace, it’s conveniently located near Victoria station.
Citizen M’s quirky interior is playful – it’s one of the most inviting hotels in Victoria. The designer living room is a funky place to hang out, admire colourful artwork and meet like-minded people.
Bedrooms are designed with comfort in mind: control the temperature, lighting and music using the handy remote whilst relaxing in bed – sounds dreamy, right?
The Goring Hotel
It’s rare that you find a luxury hotel that’s family-owned in London. Well, The Goring Hotel just so happens to be the last of its kind.
This five-star hotel is a bit of a splurge, but trust us it’s worth it. Another rarity is a private bit of outdoor space in London.
With over a century’s experience in luxury service, it’s easy to see why The Goring gets it spot on. You’ll be treated to nothing but impeccable service at The Dining Room and The Cocktail Bar – both of which are unmissable.
The Z Hotel Victoria
If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Victoria that doesn’t skimp on necessities, head to The Z Hotel.
Offering compact, luxurious rooms, comfy is The Z Hotel’s middle name. And handcrafted beds are dressed in crisp linen sheets and blackout curtains are on guard to ensure you get all the beauty sleep you need.
Head down to the Z Cafe in the AM for fresh croissants, cereals and bacon rolls. Grab yourself a coffee before heading out for a morning stroll in St James’ Park, right around the corner.
The Eaton Townhouse
Looking for affordable hotels near Victoria? The Eaton Townhouse is as you might have already guessed, a converted townhouse and one of our favourite budget-friendly places to stay in central London.
We especially love the location of this Victoria hotel, it’s closeby to famous landmarks and has plenty of bars and restaurants surrounding it.
We’d describe this hotel as no frills, but that’s not to say you’ll want for anything. The air-conditioned rooms have been modernised, but there are no added extras or breakfast available.
Fancy a stay in a family-owned boutique townhouse hotel? Who are we kidding, of course you do. The Belgrave hotel is just a short walk from Victoria station but located on a quiet street – so you can enjoy all the perks of the location whilst still getting a good night’s sleep.
The Belgrave knows how to look after its guests, you can expect attentive service and luxurious beds with soft linen.
Mornings are zen at this Victoria hotel, feast on a delightful spread filled with fresh fruit, pastries, and cheese and meats at no extra cost. There’s also an English breakfast available to order for a small fee.
Who knew that staying near Buckingham Palace could be affordable? We do – and so does Victor Hotel.
With that being said, we wouldn’t describe this hotel as luxurious. But, it is a good place to stay if you’ll spend most of your time exploring the surrounding area.
Victor Hotel does, however, have 24-hour room service and complimentary toiletries on offer.
Before heading out to explore Victoria, make sure you head down to Victor Hotel’s continental breakfast spread. Fill up on pastries and fresh fruit, all for free. That should set you up for your day.
Another excellent Victoria hotel we recommend is Collier’s Hotel. This no-frills hotel has a lot to offer the tepid explorer despite its affordable price tag.
The good news? You’ll be well fed in the AM during your stay here. The buffet-style breakfast has all the morning goods at no extra cost.
The bedrooms look slightly tired, though they’re spotlessly clean and come with fresh towels and an ensuite. Although, if you’d like WiFi you’d need to pay a small fee.
Collier’s Hotel is within walking distance of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. So, this hotel is perfect if you’re planning a visit to some of London’s major attractions and will most likely spend all your time outside exploring.

When you’re done with your shopping spree, head to Millenium Hotel’s modern Chinese restaurant for dinner and then for a drink or two in its stylish cocktail bar. Then, retreat to your chic bedroom that boasts impressive city views.
After you’ve enjoyed the comfiest night sleep, enjoy a continental breakfast or full English to get you ready for another full day of shopping at the nearby Harvey Nichols, Burberry and all of the other high-end shops that this fancy hotel is next to.
Luna Simone Hotel
Luna Simone Hotel is a quintessential Victoria hotel – the exterior is piercing white and elegant.
We’ll warn you that stepping inside the Luna Simone Hotel is a little bit of a maze. There’s a myriad of staircases leading to different floors and rooms dotted around the many corridors.
Bedrooms are quite minimal and have all of the usual amenities. But the best part about this hotel is the breakfast. A complimentary full English is served in the downstairs dining room. And it’s truly delicious.
The Windermere Hotel
This 4-star Victorian hotel is one of the best hotels in Victoria. The Windermere Hotel is a great place to stay if you’re heading to the nearby West End.
Each room has been individually designed and comes with lots of character. Bedrooms feature pops of colour with patterned curtains and cushions to match.
The family-run hotel also had a brasserie serving a full English breakfast and a modern European menu for dinner. We also love that this hotel is located along a traditional Victorian street. It fits well with The Windermere’s design.
Mornington Hotel Victoria
The Mornington Hotel Victoria may be set inside an impressive Victorian building, but the interior tells a different story.
The bedrooms are ultra-modern at this hotel with sleek bathrooms and mood lighting. As well as this, rooms are soundproofed making sure you get the beauty sleep that you deserve.
Mornington Hotel is an ideal place to stay if you’re in the mood for a shopping spree, and let’s face it, when aren’t we? Harrods is right around the corner as well as other luxury boutiques that you must visit during your stay here.
Nestled on the cusp of Victoria is The Berkeley hotel – an uber-luxurious 5-star hotel with an award-winning restaurant.
A stay here is pure relaxation from start to finish. Bedrooms feature fine Italian marble and modern-chic furnishings. The beds are the kind that you just sink into and never want to get up from. But, come on, you’ve got the capital to explore!
A visit to the spa during your stay is a must, you so deserve to experience treatments by Bamford and Oskia. The luxury continues on the top floor. Head up to the heated rooftop pool and take in the impressive London skyline views with a seasonal spritz from the pool bar.
Doubletree by Hilton London Victoria
Every stay at Doubletree by Hilton begins with a chocolate chip cookie – that’s a mantra we’d like to live by.
This glamorous hotel is so big that you could get lost inside. But we love it here because you’re always well looked after from start to finish. Plus, the restaurant’s European menu is exactly the tonic after a day of exploring. Followed by cocktails in the stylish bar, of course.
It makes sense that this luxurious hotel is within walking distance of Harrods and Oxford Street. You should absolutely stay here if you’re looking to splurge both on your room and in the shops.
Park Plaza Victoria London
Situated just along from the iconic Vauxhall Bridge is the Park Plaza Victoria London hotel. We think you’ll agree that it’s already impressive because of its location.
But wait until you see the unique views from your bedroom window. It’s not every day you get to wake up to a view of London’s skyscrapers.
This contemporary hotel boasts a sauna and steam room as well as a fully equipped gym that you should definitely take advantage of (if pounding London’s streets doesn’t make you break a sweat).
After you’ve worked up an appetite, head to Tozi, a vibrant Italian restaurant serving fresh pasta. If you fancy a nightcap, the lounge bar serves drinks and snacks till late and it’s the perfect hangout spot.
