Reviews - King William IV

3Self Classified Hostel Ratings explained
111 Grosvenor Road , London, SW1V 3LG
We are so centrally located that all of London's attractions are really accessible. We promise a fun experience in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We pride ourselves in having a very professional and well run hostel which is indeed a pleasure to stay in. There is a Thai restaurant on the premises which provides delicious Asian and English cuisine.

Great care has been taken in furnishing our rooms so that every traveler can have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Guests can enjoy fast and new Internet/ Wi-Fi access which provides internet and Skype calls while relaxing in our lounge or having a drink with new friends at our bar. A free continental breakfast, served in the dining room, is all included.

Our large bar /lounge is a great place to meet new friends from the four corners of the globe. You will get a traditional English feel once you enter our bar combined with international guests which gives Travel Joy something different and special to offer. Both Lounge and bar are equipped with large flat screen TV's, so you can just kick back and relax after a large day touring and sightseeing.

When you are going out (and we are sure you will) take the tube from Pimlico (Victoria Line) tube station which is only 5 minutes away or avail of the number 24 bus which leaves from our door every 10 minutes passing along the river along the way and after 15 minutes you will arrive in the world famous West End and Leicester Square. Here you will find as many clubs/bars/restaurants/shops and lots more than you will ever need. This bus runs TWENTY FOUR hours a day EVERY day!!

Our delightful old building gives you the opportunity to sleep in a bit of history of London. We are overlooking the River Thames and the massively iconic Battersea Power Station is right in front of us so you can see a bit of history no matter where you are in our building. We offer a beautiful balcony which over looks the water is extremely popular with our guests to chill out or to let their hair down as the London sky lights up at night. Our building offers all modern facilities and guests can feel very safe and comfortable and all our staff are very conscientious pride themselves in this. We provide comfortable, clean, secure accommodation to all budget travelers.

We can assure you that your stay with us will be full of fun and a wonderful taste of Central London, so come along and join the party!

Good value for money.
The room was basic but comfortable with a huge TV and views of the Thames. Everything was spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and there are free hot drinks and soft drinks.

Hidden Gem
Although the listing states this is a hotel, it is in fact a hostel. But for the price we paid I cannot complain at all.
The hostel is in an excellent location and all the staff were extremely friendly and eager to help.
We stayed in a triple en suite room which fulfilled our needs perfectly. 3 beds, a wardrobe and drawers, a good shower as well as a huge tv with home cinema system (which was a nice little surprise).
The free soft drinks and sweets on the bar for guests was a nice touch :)
The breakfast was basic, cereal and toast but pancakes and omlettes were available too.
The food on an evening was amazing - I had a Thai curry which was delicious. Never had Thai food before but will most certainly have it again - whether the food will be as good as at the King William, we will have to wait and see.
The hotel has a bus stop right outside - the number 24. The bus goes all round London so ideal for those people who arent keen tube-rider. Beware, this route can get busy at times. Also, Pimlico station is about a 10minute walk away with access to the Victoria line.
The hostel is obviously ideal for backpackers, but I would recomend it to groups of friends looking for somewhere to stay in London.
The friendly and relaxed atmosphere, along with the great staff and excellent staff makes the King William IV a fantastic place to stay in London.
