This "Victoria Hotel" is not to be confused for the other "Victoria Hotel" situated at 25 Middleburg Street, also known as Bouverie Road East. That hotel previously being called the "Bouverie Hotel."

The building is actually at the left end of a block of buildings that form the crescent. However, Terry Begent, has kindly sent me an old postcard image showing the name "Victoria Hotel" at the right hand end as well. This image would suggest that the hotel was the entire block, but he believes the buildings between were private residence and that perhaps this was just advertising that the hotel was attached to this block.
