Few days late - but #December was an odd month for lots of reasons - but saw travel to #lasvegas for a big international trade show and then a short hop to #athens for the last visit of the year. Then a few parties for Xmas before stopping for a couple of weeks. Now back to the day job tomorrow!

Well that’s the last #hotelstay of 2023 done and the rest of the year will be spent in my own bed. I’ve not counted how many nights I’ve been in hotels this year (I don’t think I want to!) but at least with one chain I have had 70 nights as the app told me this morning!  It’s all part and parcel of the job but also it’s not easy at times either. 
My last stay this year was with #hotelindigo I do love an @hotelindigo hotel. On my blog and on here you can find many stays reviewed at #indigohotels across the world.
Last night was hotel indigo on #leicestersquare. I loved the theming and very apt for my last stay of the year to have all the #theatrical elements around. 
Now a bit of time to rest and recharge ready for 2024!

Been quite a manic and busy #November! Trips to #lasvegas and #Germaany. Lit a show for @guildfordschoolofacting and had a busy time at work. @johannaspayne also fell in a tree. @max_theminiweenie just looked cute and we headed towards #xmas.

As we ended our #Route1 journey up the west coast of #usa we arrived in #seattle. It was defiantly one of our more favourite stops of the whole trip even if it was very cold! We spent a load of time up the @spaceneedle with a wonderful dinner on our last night. We also visited Seattle where there was a whole new level of the city created. On our way back to the airport we visited the @boeing museum which was very geeky!

It’s not been the busiest month for October with only a couple of days in Stockholm and then a stag do in London for a weekend, rest of the time has mostly been around home - which makes for a very nice change…. November and December will be very different!

Z Hotel Victoria Review

Z Hotel Victoria Review

I don’t often stay in Central London due to the close proximity to home and travel being simple, but due to a late finish and early start in December 2016 I tried out the Z Hotel Victoria. 

Following on from the very successful “simpler” room format mastered by the likes of Easy Hotels, there is a new breed of Hotel chains like Z Hotels which keep the rooms simple but in theory more cost effective. Pitched between the Easy Hotel and normal hotel chain its meant to bring luxury to simpler rooms.

It’s possible to book the rooms with or without a window. Having stayed in windowless rooms before I can honestly say I don’t like them – so on this occasion I stayed away from these options when booking. I originally booked a double but was upgraded to a queen room. This gave me a good size double bed, en-suite shower room (divided by glass) from the room and then a small desk/beside table arrangement. One side of the bed was against the wall.

The room was comfortable – but although there was a window in the room, frustratingly there was no way to open it even just a little for some air circulation. I also find in todays world that only offering Feather Pillows is a bit off – personally I need to have non feather!

The bathroom was great – I travel by myself so the glass wall doesn’t worry me, still it does take a bit of getting used to!

Breakfast was served in the foyer space, good selection of continental selections were on offer.

There isn’t any parking connected with the hotel given it’s central London – however you are 2 mins away from Victoria Train Station/Underground Line with the excellent transport links that this offers.

I do like the format and to see on the website prices from £75 for Central London is good carrot. The decour and standard is good and you certainly feel your staying somewhere nice!

Summary

Hotel Address: The Victoria, 5 Lower Belgrave St, London SW1W 0NR

Wifi: Free, and good speed
Sockets by Bed: Yes
Shower: Excellent

Official Star Rating: 4 Stars
TS Rating: 3.5
TS Comment: A hotel which does what it says on the tin. For the format it’s clean, tidy and practical but for me one or 2 night stay would be the maximum. Given London prices it’s £130 room rate charge is about right – but think you could do bigger/nicer rooms on a Late bookers rate with one of the bigger chains. I wouldn’t want to pay £100 for a room with no windows!
