Historical Traveller Reviews of Luna Simone Hotel

Absolutely loved The Luna and Simone Hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Luna and Simone Hotel was an exceptional investment;
I can't say enough about the quality of the Luna and Simone!!
We stayed there for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute AND experienced no hassles whatsoever.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially with travel suggestions.
This hotel offers quad rooms which can be hard to find, and their rates are good.
Our (quad) room was comfortable, clean and spacious. All appliances worked properly and it was even better than the picture online.
They include breakfast in their price and it is served in a stylish cheery area. It is a satisfying meal and saves you both time and money.
The best part is the location: you are a 10 minute walk from Victoria station and the Pimlico tube stop. We took several day trips using Victoria Station and it was invaluable to be so close.
You can easily walk to Parliament, Westminster Abby etc. so it is good for tourists interested in these places.
The neighborhood is also beautiful and very nice and quiet.

fantastic hotel!

My husband and I just got back from our trip to London and we stayed for 4 nights at this charming hotel. First off I must say that we read tons of hotel reviews prior to our trip to find the most comfortable and affordable hotel, we spent weeks on the subject as it is important for me to come back to a clean and comfortable hotel after a long day. We finally decided on the Luna and Simone after reading reviews on this website and (terrific) reviews in Lonely Planet and other guide books.
This hotel is managed by a family and each one of them is kind, warm, friendly, and will always go out of there way to make you feel at home. We were treated beautifully and kindly. Breakfast was excellent, you order something from the menu and then they make it for you so its always fresh, unlike other hotels where breakfast is served like a "buffet" and the food can stand there long after it was already cooked. The rooms are always clean, the bathrooms are a lot bigger than other budget hotel bathrooms that I have seen, you can shower comfortably and use the bathroom without feeling claustrophobic. THe double bed was in fact a bed, (not like in other hotels where they push two twin beds together). THe room is always tidy and neat and I felt very comfortable in it as it was so very clean.
The location is just a 5 minute walk to pimlico station, and there is a bus stop right next to the hotel. THe hotel is located in a very nice looking neighborhood with lots of restaurants and shops nearby.
All in all, we had a fantastic stay, and would definitly stay here again. Even if next trip our budget will be bigger, we will still prefer to stay at this hotel than somewhere else as we were so impressed by it.

Two thumbs up!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed here on our first trip to London. Room and en-suite bathroom with shower, were small, but comfortable, and more than adequate for tourists on the go. Room and hotel were very clean. Great location, less than a ten minute walk from Victoria station, with trains to Gatwick, and the Tube to Heathrow. Within easy walking distance of Westminster, Parliament & Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, etc. Lots of pubs, restaurants, coffee shops nearby. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Good tourist hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently stayed at the Luna Simone while traveling to London. Our room was downstairs near the breakfast area which eliminated any issue with the lack of a "lift". I thought this was a perfect level of hotel for people who just need simple, adequate accomodations. We spent most of our time sightseeing and found the convenience of getting to and from the hotel ideal. The owners were very nice and helpful. I would recommend to others traveling on a budget. Additionally, with the weather being cool, we didn't have any issues with the lack of air conditioning, which I could foresee as a problem in the heat.

I would stay here again!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the hotel for four nights in September. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were really helpful. It is within walking distance of Victoria station which makes it convenient for those wanting to get around central London. We stayed on the second floor and it was fairly quiet. Our stay here was much more pleasant than our stay at the Holiday Inn near Heathrow Airport.

A step (or two) up from a hostel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Luna for two nights. It is a good little hotel, as one reviewing before us put, if you are a student travelling Europe, looking for a very comfortable alternative to a hostel or on a strict budget (which, especially in London, is important!). However, if you are expecting even Holiday Inn quality, you'd best not stay here.

We liked the following things:
1) location - the proximity to Victoria Station and Pilimco is excellent. And, there is a bus on the street as well. The area is safe, even at night. Victoria Station and its environs means being close to everything - major attractions and connections to Gatwick and Heathrow.

2) the bathroom was clean

3) the breakfast was adequate. It saves you money, so we cannot complain.

We disliked the following:
1) there is no lift. We were near the top of the flat, and had to drag ourselves, and our bags, up 5 flights of stairs (and down). Not a problem if you are young. However, if you are older or have a disability of some sort, be aware!

2) Noise - the walls are pretty thin. And with there being no lift, you can hear people dragging, banging, and pulling their bags down the stairs and bumping into the walls. This was somewhat disruptive through the night.

3) The bed. While the sheets had been changed prior to our arrival, they had some stains (think skid marks). The blanket on top of the flat sheet also had some unsightly dirty stains on it that still gives me the shivers when I think about it.

4) The smell. The room had a dank smell.

In sum, the hotel is more like a student dormitory. If you are budget conscious or looking for a treat from the hostel life, this is a great find. Remember to bring your own toiletries as they only supply a small bar of soap in the bathroom. However, if you are expecting something closer to a hotel, you ought to consider other properties.
Management Response from lunasimonehotel
In response to this review, I would firstly like to offer our apologies to the customer concerned.

As we are a family run business, we take personal pride in our hotel, and go to great lengths to ensure that our customers are provided with clean, affordable, friendly and in our opinion, superior 3 diamond accomodation.

The rooms have all been recently refurbished, and are cleaned daily.

Regarding the lift issue, the Hotel is 2 Victorian town houses combined, and therefore it is not really viable to put a lift in. We do realise that this proves a problem for some customers, but we have always offered lower floor rooms, if avaliable, for those who request it.

I sincerly hope that you will read the other reviews, and be satisfied that a high majority of our customers are happy with our efforts.

Apolgies once again.

I love this hotel!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed at the Luna-Simone four times within the last three years and I love it here! The rooms are affordable, very clean, and tastefully decorated, plus the owners are very polite and helpful. True, the rooms are a bit small with only a wall mounted fan to cool you off, but these are minor obstacles. Also, after a long day of sight-seeing, the last thing you want to do is drag yourself up a flight of stairs...but just chalk it up to extra exercise! I plan to stay here in the future.

Good value for money

from Ileanarama
Stayed here in September 2004 for 9 days during my trip to London. The rooms are very reasonably priced (for London that is!) and quite comfortable. I had initially reserved a room with a shared bathroom but since none were available, they offered me a room with an ensuite for the same price. The room and the bathroom were both very clean. The English breakfast was basic but quite alright: choice of orange juice or Corn Flakes to start, fried egg with bacon and baked beans, hard boiled eggs or ham and tomato, all served with toast, and coffee (instant) or tea.

Staff were very nice and helpful, going out of their way to get your questions answered. Location was fabulous: within walking distance to all the sites (Buckingham, Westminster Abbey...) and very close to Victoria station, making it simple and easy to move around.

Only down side was the bed: a bit lumpy and hard. But I would definitely return to this hotel and would recommend to a friend.

Note: you might want to book directly through the hotel, this turned out to be cheaper for me.

A good value and convenient

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in August and found it to be a good choice. We selected it for its convenience to Victoria Station (about 10 minute walk) and price. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are small and basic, no AC but that was not a problem during our stay. They should invest in a few upgrades such as better pillows! The English breakfast was the most basic of any hotel we experienced (instant coffee only). Neighborhood was fine with several restaurants, coffee shops, bars, food shops around.

Recommend highly

from A TripAdvisor Member
The accomodation was perfect for our needs (family of six). The bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless. We had three in each bedroom and had plenty of room. The hotel is close to main attractions and public transport. London was quite warm during our visit, but each room had a fan, which was effective. The staff were brilliant, and helped us with our special needs, above and beyond what we expected. Highly recommended.

Top Local Tips for London

London Museum Pass - Great Idea If you are going to participate in any of the London Museums that do not have free entry (donation requested), I would recommend the London Museum Pass which you can purchase on-line or at the British Tourism office. This saved us a TON of money and provided additional attractions to see that we would have passed over because of the cost. Select varies number of days and set your own schedule from there.

London Transport Museum Go Friday evening. You can find a number of places in Covent Garden that do a "before 5:00 pm) two or three course fixed price meal. The Museum is open until 9:00, and not overly crowded in the evening. At least not in March.

Museum and Gallery 4 Day Trip Used Public Tranportation only and it was great. Walking is easy. Went in Jan to avoid crowds and it worked, Tate Modern was unexpected pleasure. Wallace, Musuem of London, and Courthland outstanding. British museum ovewhelming - great exhibit. Strike of 1/2 employess on last day impacted national gallery, portrait gallery 1/2 seen but still worth it. Was able to get a great seat for Billy Elliot at last minute since went in jan. Tate Britain a little disappointing
