WiFi included connection tremendously slow, valid only for particular pages. Impossible to use it for email consultant and even London Public Transportation app!!! If better connection is needed, a plus must be paid (and it is not declared in the info page...) Staff polite (in particular at breakfast) but at the reception they even not tried to help my husband (80 y-old) to move a suitcase... Room very clean, not more than 12 mq (bathroom included)No wardrobe or drawers, just a hanger. Only real merit: the position.

Rooms in London were expensive and this was a good bargin. It is located right in town next to victoria station. Walking distance to a good many sights. Tower of London was a quick ride on the underground.. The people at the Dover was very helpful with our stay and friendly. The only draw back was the stairs. Luging suitcases up 3 flights of stairs for and older person would be taxing.

We stayed at Dover Hotel for 4 nights and we were very pleased with the service. The room was cleaned every day and it was spotless. The staff was very helpful, the location is excellent for sightseeing and the breakfast was ok. We would definitely recommend Dover, as the rate between price and quality is very good.

The room was small and the bathroom tiny but both were clean. Breakfast was correct and service was quite good. Quality versus price is acceptable. I wouldn't mind going back to that hotel and after some other awful places I've known, I would even recommend this one. The biggest inconvenience is the noise from the street.

A GOOD HOTEL RELATIONSHIP PRICE/QUALITY. VERY NEAR TO VICTORIA STATION.BREAKFAST IS INCLUIDED.THE WORST: VERY SMALL BATHROOM BUT INCLUIDED IN THE ROOM (IT'S A ROOM FOR 3 PERSONS) UN BUEN HOTEL RELACIÓN CALIDAD/PRECIO. MUY CERCA DE LA STACION VICTORIA. EL DESAYUNO ESTA INCLUIDO. LO PEOR: EL BAÑO QUE ES MUY PEQUEÑO PERO LIMPIO Y DENTRO DE LA HABITACION (UNA HABITACION TRIPLE)

La verdad es que el hotel no está mal. Es perfecto para un fin de semana, en plan de lo quiero para ducharme y dormir.No tiene ningun lujo pero el precio no es muy caro teniendo en cuenta que es londres. Lo mejor que tiene es la situación, a una manzana y media de la estación de Victoria. Por lo demas solo decir que el desayuno son tostadas y cereales. En resumen, está bien si el hotel es algo secundario del viaje y uno no quiere gastarse pasta.

My husband, daughter, and I stayed in room 26 at the Dover hotel for a 5 day vacation. The location was excellent, and the staff was courteous. The room we had faced the street, and the foot traffic leaving the pub down the street kept us up at night. In retrospect, we should have asked for another room, but didn't know if there was another triple room available. We especially liked being near the Sainsbury market (2 blocks away, and near the bus stop) to buy water and snacks, and their deli makes good pizza. We only ate breakfast at the hotel the first morning, and it consisted of cold cereal and toast. If they offered some type of pastry, we would probably have eaten there every day. The coffee and hot chocolate were okay, but the orange juice was a little sour. There are plenty of places nearby that serve breakfast, so was not a big problem. Overall, the hotel was okay, and we felt safe walking in the neighborhood. Very close to Victoria Station, which was nice.

Hotel looks like an all "third world" house, with old room furniture, fractured walls, old and rusty bathroom equipment. Extremely limited room space. I would suggest to avoid this hotel, since the money I have paid for that does not reppresent a right value for the quality I have received. And in reality, it does not look at all like in the photos posted on the web-site.

We stayed in London 4 days. The Dover hotel was better than we expected: simple but really clean. The bathroom was really small but everything in it was brand new, the bedroom was small and simple too but, again, clean and comfortable. For breakfast we were served toasts, butter and jam, simple but good. The location of the hotel is a few minute walk from Victoria Station in a very quiet street.

One of best values for the price in this part of the city. Excellent location and public transport. Rooms are quite small (but that's stadard in London) but clean and not too worn out. Top floor is unsuitable for "bigger" people or those who can't climb narrow steep stairs. I'd stay here again.

The room was extremely small with almost no space for placing your clothes for a one week stay, had to "live from our suitcases". Location and public transport excellent. Numerous good, different type restaurants and cafés nearby.

Ficamos no quarto número 7 (primeiro andar), a janela do quarto é para os fundos do hotel. O quarto não é muito espaçoso, mas tem aparelho para esquentar água, café e chá à vontade. Ao sair, a chave deve ser deixada na recepção, o que incomoda um pouco (obs.: a recepção funciona 24h por dia). A grande vantagem do hotel é a distância da estação "Victória" de metrô e trem. A diária para quem reserva pela internet é menor do que para quem fica no hotel sem ter feito reserva com antecedência. Dependendo do horário do café da manhã, é necessário aguardar para liberar espaço no refeitório. O café é simples, mas como já está incluído no preço, vale a pena.

If you're looking for a cubbyhole with the smallest shower available, this is the place. If you want toast and cereal for breakfast when one of the few tables comes available, then this is your place. It doesn't look anything at all like the room in the pictures! I won't stay there again, and I don't recommend it for a party of two who want a room with a little space for moving around.

For a family with 3 teenage boys the room and bath were very small.The distance between Victoria Station and the hotel is about a 5 minute walk but arriving at the station for a new visitor can be confusing so directions to the hotel could be better. The Hop-on/off bus stop(Victoria Station)was close and the hotel staff helpful in being able to provide us with tickets.

I was not immediately impressed with the reception area but once I arrived in the room I was more impressed. The room was small but very clean, particularly the bedding.The bathroom was also very small.In general I thought the room to be very well equipped especially having a hairdryer and tea making facilities. The closeness to Victoria was also a very important factor. I cannot comment on the breakfast or breakfast area as I had to leave before breakfast was served. Perhaps it would be an idea to start serving at 7a.m.for those who have early buses or trains to catch. I would definitely use the Dover again in the future.

il bagno è piccolissimo con doccia, vater ed un piccolo lavello ad angolo, i letti vengono rifatti in modo molto "generico", il posto è comunque comodissimo ed a soli due minuti dalla stazione Vittoria e si trova allo stesso tempo in una strada abbastanza tranquilla. La colazione offerta è abbastanza buona. Il rapporto qualita'/prezzo è accettabile.

I used the Hotel whilst travelling for business, and would stay again, although not for a long period of time. The bathroom was extremely small, and the rate charged vs. what is offered does not represent value for money, although I think most lodging costs in London are similar in terms of wuality vs. price.
