... station. A bus came pretty well straight away and the driver dropped us of at the airport bus depot. Or at least he dropped us in the area - on the main road outside and we trundled our suitcases across to the depot. A bus was leaving at 12.30pm and so we got our suitcases stowed away.
My suitcase wheels like a supermarket trolley. I'm pretty sure it has some dog genes in there somewhere because when we were ...
... Mom and sister. Thank you guys so much. When people in Ireland asked me where I was from in the US, I didn't have a great answer (I'm not ready to say Arizona full time yet), so I kind of said "all over" and I'd mention Vermont, Montana, and Arizona. And people were so amazed. It's true that I have been very fortunate to see as much of the world as I have, and it's all thanks to my mom always telling me the world is ...
... is a man made spa the size of an Olympic swimming pool built on a natural hot spring. It is amazing! I recommend giving yourself a day and going with a group of friends and chilling out with a beer! Life lessons from my trip to Iceland: - Easyjet are ruthless about bag weight. So when you have to repack your bags in the airport terminal, don't leave your toothbrush behind. Especially when going to Iceland. Because the Icelandic people have ...

... was wonderful and highly recommend. It took 30 minutes and you hardly felt it move! So much fun. My phone keeps running out of picture space so will add more from my camera when I get home. Went to the British museum which was pretty cool with a lot of massive Egyptian stuff that was awesome! We were hungered and found a place called Tortilla that is like Chipotle but I got a margarita to drink. :) Back to the tube for our ride ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Grapevine Hotel London
Avoid like the plague
Avoid like the plague, I'm single and I thought I was quite use to being giving the worst room in the hotel, but this room beats everything. 6x6 room with toilet and minute shower in a cupboard, by the decoration of the room it hadn't been done for 30 years. The curtains were hanging off their rail and I didn't like to look to closely at the bed, the bit I could see under the sheets looked older than me and I'm in my sixties. I know I didn't pay a lot for my room (£38 pn), but a coat of emulsion and paint wouldn't have gone amiss. Don't bother with breakfast, the toaster doesn't work!
I stayed at the hotel with my parents this August. I must say that the place is really good. Staff is very very nice and helpful.
On arrival we were given complimentary pens and london maps and london postcards.
Although the rooms are a bit small but its good value for money.
We stayed in a triple room and the price for that was £75 per night. Which is like £25 per person which is really reasonable.
Rooms were nice and clean and the location is just great.
Overall it was a really nice stay and I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
I had actually stayed here a couple of years ago with my wife (when we didn't have any children), and it was okay and manageable. I regret choosing it again though as I was travelling with a large extended family plus my baby girl. The location is really the ideal aspect of this hotel, as its 2 blocks from Victoria Coach Station, and 3 blocks from Victoria Station (tube, shopping, etc.).
Ich habe in diesem Hotel 5 Tage und Nächte verbracht, da leider alles ausgebucht war (Wimbledon-Zeit) Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral, 5 min zu Fuß zur Victoria Station. Das Hotel selbst ist überhaupt nicht zu empfehlen. Die Zimmer sind super klein und schmutzig. Alles ist sehr alt und in einem katastrophalem Zustand. Es gibt kein Mobiliar: keine Schränke, nur das Bett. Lediglich an der Wanhalterung hingen 3 Bügel. Kein Platz für Koffer oder Ähnliches. Man muß die Sachen im Koffer lassen oder auf dem Boden liegen lassen, dann hat man aber kein Durchgang zur Toilette. Die Wände waren verdreckt und seit Jahren nicht mehr gestrichen, eigentlich nur ekelig !!! Ich habe mich gewundert, daß man für so was überhaupt Geld nehmen kann (37,-Pfund für ein EZ). Im Bad kann man sich nicht mal umdrehen. Das Frühstück war sehr sperlich, nur Tosts und Marmelade. Der Service war auch nicht besonders und nicht wirklich freundlich. Ich würde dort nie wieder übernachten wollen und kann allen nur davon abraten.
Not that bad!
I stayed there on last November with some friends and, while my friends were not satisfied at all, I could not complain. The reason for this is that they were given a old family room in the basement, which had not been refurbished, and I've to admit it was awful... But I was given a double room on the top floor, and that was not that bad for the price we payed. If You have a restricted budget, this hotel is fine, anyway don't expect the Hilton! Just ask for a refurbished room on the upper floors!
the most terrible place I have ever been. awfull. dirty, unpleasent, small. toilets are disguisting. avoid this place!!!!
A horrible experinece.Avoid this place. Small, shabby, not very clean and the walls are like paper!I listened to the Italians next door scream at their children for most of the evening. The 24 hour reception disappears to bed in the wee hours and early morning check out was difficult.ALso had the misfortune of seeing the kitchen... Not worth a quarter of what they charge for it!What a dump!
A place to avoid
My husband And I stayed there for one very uncomfortable night. No hot water. A single lightbulg hainging from a wire over the bed with springs sticking out. Heat that would not turn off. No clothes hangers. Get the picture? And on top of all that, they had the nerve to charge our credit card twice for one ( sleepless) night. Do not stay here!
