The Nadler Victoria is a great sightseeing base, with theatres, the Tate Britain and Buckingham Palace all within easy walking distance.
The hotel service is friendly but unobtrusive – staff will happily dish out tips about things to see and do without becoming overbearing. The rooms have a stylish, pared-back decor, with pale yellow walls, dimmer lights built into the headboards and cute hand-painted pictures of palaces on the walls.
With space at a premium in this part of town, there's no in-house bar or restaurant, with guests instead benefitting from discounts at local bars and restaurants. As well as the usual chains there are some great options, including excellent contemporary Japanese restaurant Kouzu and one of the smallest (and cutest) pubs in London, the Cask and Glass just down the road.
Instead of a minibar, there’s a tiny kitchenette hidden behind sliding doors. You won’t be rustling up a 'Masterchef'-worthy meal here, but the filtered water tap, microwave, fridge and Nespresso machine are neat, convenient touches. There's also internet-enabled TV, free wi-fi and speakers in the bedroom and bathroom, into which you can stream music of your choice. Rooms range from small doubles to deluxe rooms with king-size beds.
Breakfast is delivered to your room at your chosen time and consists of croissants, yoghurts and orange juice. It’s on the basic side, but well priced. Prices start at £120 a night – decent value for the location.
The Nadler Victoria is a stylish, welcoming hotel that's big on convenience, and with plenty included in the price, you needn't worry about nasty extras on your bill at check out.
