The BEST stay in London
Our stay at the Melita was absolutely incredible! The owner and his father were the nicest people we had met on our trip, so much so, that it was actually painful to leave them. The breakfast was FANTASTIC! Lots of food to keep you going for the rest of the day. The hotel is close to a very warm and welcoming pub just up the street, and close to the Victoria Central Station, which made for an easy transition from airport to hotel. I have nothing but nice things to say about this place and its people. The rooms were cozy in classic British fashion, and the walls are covered in quirky artistic impressions of the place, that make excellent conversation starters. It's a place that welcomes artists with open arms, and I really can't wait to return again.

Melita Review
The Melita is a very nice hotel. Staff were very friendly. Very accommodating when it came to leaving our luggage and picking it up after wards. Everything you need is in walking distance and close to Victoria Station. The room we had was a good size but we were told that all of our luggage wouldn't fit in the room they were going to give us so we were given a bigger room. So when you book, ask for a bigger room. Would definitely stay here again. No issues whatsoever.

Check-in was a little confusing as the desk attendant did not explain completely where to find our room and the fire doors do not have the room numbers attached to them. The rest of the stay went smoothly and was enjoyable.

Great little hotel
I stayed here with my daughter for her birthday. The room was very clean and modern with a small balcony. We stayed in room 36, it had a single bed and a double bed. The bathroom was clean with a good shower. The staff were helpful and polite. We found that there were many places to eat in walking distance as well as a Sainsburys. The transport links were very close too.
