What you see is what you get at the Nadler Victoria in London. I found that to be a rarity in most hotels. The promises on the website and the realities on the ground often bare little resemblance at other hotels.
To my delight our room was exactly like the picture on their website. I had read the reviews before booking a room for a four night stay. It was our first stay in London and I didn’t want to take any chances with a shoddy hotel.
I had booked rooms before that were recommended on Tripadvisor and had not been disappointed. My room at a B&B in Brooklyn was outstanding and my rooms at Pensacola and Daytona Beach Shores were great too. Forty four customers rated the Nadller Victoria outstanding and one customer had rated it excellent. At the time of my booking, the hotel was rated 5 out of over thousands of hotels in London in customer service. By the time I arrived it was rated number two in customer service.
The Nadler Victoria Hotel also had a certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor. With such a stellar rating, I felt assured. My daughter prepaid the room on the Nadler’s website saving 30% off the hotel bill.
When we arrived, the desk clerk at the Nadler escorted us to our room and explained all the features. The room was well appointed. The sumptuous towels and shiny silverware were warmed. We sunk into our luxurious bed with plush pillows.
The hotel was less than five minutes away from Buckingham Palace, restaurants and the London Tube. Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament were a 15 minute walk away. I was a short cab ride away from the Tate Britain. It was the best of all worlds for me.
There was a bakery next door. The surrounding area was pleasant and appeared safe as well. While there was construction across the street, our room was pleasantly quiet.
We did have a problem with our thermostat but the staff responded quickly and reset it downstairs. Other than that our stay was uneventful. The staff was attentive and helpful throughout our stay.
The room was equipped with a kitchenette that had a microwave, electric teapot and expresso machine, kitchenware—all the conveniences needed for a picture perfect stay.
