Gallifreygirl41 stayed here on Jan 3, 2009 during their trip titled: Gallifreygirl41's Great Adventure.
So I guess two walking tours won't fly for today? I had intended to do the Parlimentary tour early and the London Bridge/Tower walk later, but might just do the first, and then maybe a ferry? We can't get too worn out today because we go to Paris tomorrow and it is going to be more of the same. Walking everywhere. But that is the …
We hurried back to the hotel just in time to see England tie the US in
the World Cup finals. England isn't very happy. We are going to need
to do something besides sleep today. There is so much in London and we
really only have 3 1/2 days. Kieran says she can only wear one of her
three pairs of shoes and is now …
Check out time is 11:00 AM and that is probably when we will leave today. The Thameside Railway Station is about 1/2 block down the street where we will catch a train, with only one change to St Pancras in London, the station nearest our hotel. We won't be able to check in there very early, so we may as well relax here. Maybe check out …
... we did was unpack and get our stuff out of the way in the few drawers and the wardrobe. This done we have enough space to get around as long as we coordinate our movements. The falcon dance...
It's really not so bad - the room is clean and the furnishings fresh. A nice breeze comes in through the window, aided by the fan on a shelf on the wall. Our bed is small (cozy?) and comfortable and all of the TV channels are in English. Yeah. We watched only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jesmond Hotel London
Very good B&B
A very good place to stay in London, clean, close to the center.
Very helpful staff.
We booked here based on Tripadvisor reviews, and I can agree with most of the reviews on here.
Friendly and convenient
Small, friendly hotel, very convenient for Euston, UCL and Tottenham Court Road and beyond. Great shower!
The worst thing about Jesmond hotel was the lack of towel hooks in the bathroom. Perhaps that gives you an idea of the quality of this place?
A place to stay
A great place to stay.
Friendly, good service.
Ready and willing to give any information asked.
Two minutes walk to the centre of the most beautiful city in the world ....London.
My husband and I just returned from 7 nights in London. Our 19 year old daughter (A Princess!! is there ever was one) is spending a semester there. We decided since we went into hock to send her there we could go further into hock to visit her since we had never been to the UK. We made the decision to go for one week and only spent it in London. And that was a good decision as there is more than enough to keep you busy for one week. A friend who has travelled the world extensively suggested the Jesmond Hotel. It is small, family run and was not only 5 blocks from our daughter but also 5 blocks from the British Museum and close to many other sites, tube and bus stops. They actually are a B&B in my mind as we got a full English breakfast each morning included in our room rate. We never left hungry!! And food can be very expensive in London so it was nice to have a full tummy before embarking upon the sites.
Great time in London
I found the Jesmond Hotel to be quite enjoyable. The accomodations were clean and well-kept. The owners are friendly and helpful. The home-like atmosphere of the establishment tends to relax the quests and provide a soothing environment. The "common room" where breakfast is served is quite homey and the food was quite good, as well. The free internet access allowed me to keep in touch with home while overseas. It is located on a fairly quiet street within easy access to the tube and shops. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and would highly recommend this place to fellow travelers.
My favorite hotel in London!
I come to London every year and The Jesmond is my preferred place to stay. Yes, the rooms are small, but it is located in the very heart of London. You can walk to any show in Theatreland, have a great meal in Leichester Square and the British Museum is only 2 blocks away.
The family that runs the hotel is friendly and have always been helpful and accomodating. Breakfast is VERY generous and is included in the price of the room.
As much as I'd like to keep this little B&B a secret all to myself, I hope that people who want a REAL taste of London will take a chance and stay in this little gem. I will be taking the family to stay again in September!
Staying in London is sooo expensive-sticker shock for Americans is the norm. This hotel, in the heart of the Bloomsbury area, was great! Rooms are small (but this is Europe) but were efficiently made up each morning with fresh towels and beds (also something not common on my last trip to Europe). Full English breakfast comes with, and the family who runs the hotel is very accomodating and helpful to us tourists. Clean bathroom facilities. Nice sitting parlor with TV and availability of some DVD movies and games. Free internet access is a plus. Centrally located - the underground is easy and quick to get to; everywhere we needed to go in central London.
A small bed and breakfast on a major street for easy bus travel around London. It is close to the Medical school and the U of London. A short ride to the theatres on a direct route.
The couple and their 2 adult children run the hotel. They are exceedingly pleasant and quite helpful. There is a computer which the guests can access. Rooms are tight like the island but pleasant.
Breakfast is the good English version and plentiful.
We have stayed on 2 seperate trips and have recommended it to friends who echoed our views.
