Directions to The Melita – Central London Hotel

Located on the Victoria/Pimlico border, approximately 8 minutes walk from Victoria Rail and Underground Stations, The Melita could not be easier to reach from any of London’s airports. The Melita also has the benefit of Pimlico Underground station only 6 minutes walk away.
