RIU Plaza London Victoria 4*

I visited the Ru Plaza London Victoria hotel a few months ago for a travel trade event.

The location is extremely convenient, being very near Victoria Station, and practical for any kind of traveler, either for leisure, business, or when going to another destination.

The Victoria Station area is really busy, but once inside the hotel I didn’t feel the business happening outside. Also, the compact common areas are spacious enough to relax,

The reception desk can easily get overrun, so there could be lines, luggage around, people waiting to check in or out and people just lounging. So a little patience will be needed.

This hotel is new construction, which can be a plus compared to older properties. The rooms feel spacious considering this is central London, so there is not a lot of space, but the decoration and well designed areas make it feel right for one or two guests. There is plenty of natural light with large windows with city views and well – placed lighting. I don’t think you can open the windows for a chance to get fresh air (and noise).

You can walk across the street or use the overpass walkway to the large restaurant for breakfast, which is not too crowded if you time it right. The food choices were good and varied, nothing exceptional but very fresh and plenty of.

I loved the architectural features, especially the staircase glass area with nice views.

As a travel planner, I recommend this Hotel as a great place to explore the city for a short stay, not necessarily ideal for large families or groups, but great standards for a four – star hotel from the RIU brand in London if you get a good rate compared to the properties nearby.
