With Victoria Station just a three minute walk away, The Z Hotel Victoria is a great choice if you don't want to spend your first few hours in London traipsing around on a tube-stop hunt.
The design is contemporary and all rooms are kitted out with hand crafted beds and a 40-inch Samsung HD TV with free Sky Sports and Movie channels (not that you'll be watching it, with its proximity to Victoria Rail and Underground Stations and Buckingham Palace just a 5-minute walk away.) Of course, there's free WiFi and the en suite shower room comes with complimentary toiletries good enough to take home. Each room also has under-bed storage for an overnight bag, and wall-mounted hanging space for clothing. The Z Hotel Victoria also offers wheelchair accessible rooms.
Every morning dine on a continental breakfast in The Z Café (think: smoked salmon, fresh croissants, pastries, cereals, fresh fruit salad and bacon rolls) and stock up on salads, sandwiches and hot savoury dishes throughout the day to fuel all that sightseeing. St James’s Park is a short walk away and Gatwick Airport can be reached in 30 minutes from Victoria Train Station.
