... things as I normally do back home. I've taken walks, drank in bars, been pretty liberal with my eating habits, and yesterday my Britishness was unleashed after getting drunk in New York's main Arsenal bar. There was a lot of chanting, there was a lot of abuse hurled towards Arjen Robben. I think it says a lot that one of my favourite moments in New York was my first bite of a bacon double cheeseburger from Five Guys. So far, it's been a wild trip. Different city, same ...

So finally the day of my trip and of course I did no packing up until now due to studying for my Anatomy & Physiology exam this morning at 10am which could've gone better but at least the class is over now. While doing final washes and packing my stuff in my new green bag I get a text from Sam saying that when she is trying to do the online check in for our flights it is saying that the flight is closed. First idea is that she is hopefully doing something wrong but turns out I got ...

Simple To Understand Advice About Getting Hotels

A travel blog entry by bridgeittt

... br>
Although many hotels have certain rooms that allow pets, never assume your hotel will without researching ahead of time. Call them ahead of time to see if they are even if the website they're on says yes. Also ask exactly what they mean by pet-friendly, as there might be restrictions on certain breeds and sizes of pet that they allow on their premises.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Abingdon Guest House New York City

    Enjoyed staying at the Abingdon

    from

    I stayed at the Abingdon in May for 2 nights with a friend. The location is great, in the heart of the Village, close to everything. The room was clean and comfortable; the staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, for the price, I felt we had lucked out on a great deal. I would recommend it to friends and family.

    Dont be fooled

    from

    by the pictures on the internet..........this place needs a serious makeover. The entrance is shabby.........with dirty worn carpets............and our room.........was cramped and dark.........with noisy air conditioning and broken window blinds................

    On a brighter note........the staff........when they were there.........were helpful and friendly........but........if you are looking for comfort and luxury..........look elsewhere............sorry Abingdon...........

    Nice Location, Shame about the decoration

    from

    We stayed at the Abingdon for 4 nights at the end of April 2005. We had two rooms - the Garden and the Martinique.

    Extremely noisy

    from

    We booked the Guest House as all the reviews we had read raved about the place. The location was perfect I agree and very close to the lovely area of Greenwich Village. However the Room (Windsor) was so noisy that it sounded as if we were sleeping in the middle of the road! The windows are so loose that you can hear every conversation from pedestrians below and being on a major thoroughfre there is no much possibility of sleep or peace and quiet.

    Shabby chic is out of style

    from

    We booked the Abingdon Guest House for November 30, December 1 and 2, 2004 because of the reviews I had read on tripadvisor and I'm sorry to say it was a big mistake. First, our plane was late because of mechanical problems and although we continually updated Justine, she was not happy with our after-midnight arrival and showed her displeasure without a qualm. I profusely apologized for our late arrival but she was not going to be nice not matter what. As she took us up the narrow, shabby staircase, I could see the place was very shabby and in need of paint and a rehab. Our first night's room on the third floor was very small (as expected in NYC) and the bathroom was old and shabby and pieced together. The next 2 nights were spent in what was supposed to be a better room on the second floor, which although more spacious it was dirty and had way too much extraneous furniture. They seemd to be more interested in making the place "quaint" and "charming" instead of comfortable and clean. The bathroom in this room was nicer (obviously updated) but the bed was the worst! Old and very uncomfortable and the sheets had seen better days. Plus the noise, cold air, and rain came in through the gap between the window and the air conditioner. We could not wait to get out of the room each day! Each of the rooms had names but I've forgotten them. I know not to expect much on less than $200 a night in NYC but this was just thoughtless and rude. We won't go back and I hope someone tells them to update the place.

    Great place to stay!

    from

    We stayed at the Abingdon for 4 nights Wed - Sun It was great, we loved the fact that it's in the heart of the Village and the room, the Essex was very comfortable.You don't get all the trappings of a large hotel, concierge etc, but we really liked the independant feel of the place. The place is perhaps in need of a little decoration upgrade in places, but it met our needs very well and we would stay there again.

    Wish Weekends were 4 Nights Long, But....

    from

    Qualifier: We didn't stay here. Sorry that we couldn't experience the Abingdon, but they were firm -- a weekend booking is a minimum of four nights. If we wanted to try booking with them, we could try right before our trip and if they had a room available, they would then book a two night stay. We went somewhere else where a weekend is two nights and found a gem. Thanks, Abingdon.

    Kooky bolt hole in Greenwich Village

    from

    I've just returned from a two week business trip, staying at the Abingdon Guest House... which was a fabulously cosy home from home. A great location, as a lone female traveller I felt totally secure and relished the freedom that the guest house provided. The Brewbar below stocks dangerously good muffins, and the friendly owners were incredibly helpful when my partner wanted to send me a surprise birthday bouquet.

    The only things I would add would be a kettle and perhaps a small fridge in the room... and as a brit unused to such things, perhaps slightly quieter air conditioning!

    Fantastic place to stay

    from

    We have just returned from a fantastic stay at the Abingdon Guest House, situated in the Greenwich Village area. This is a great place to stay - the rooms are a good size and tastefully decorated.Our host , Justine, made us feel very welcome and nothing was a hassle.The location is brilliant being situated between Soho and the Meatpacking Districts.You are surrounded by fantastic restaurants/cafes as well as speciality boutiques.The nearest subway station would probably be 5 minutes walk.This type of accomodation is ideally suited to patrons that want to use room as a base.It encourages you to go out and explore the area as close proximity to everything in beautiful surroundings.Please appreciate that this is a guest house, not a hotel.There is no room service or reception.This is a good thing as you will not be slugged stupid prices for items such as refreshments and phone charges.A Convenience store is located next door for all these needs - phone cards,snacks,drinks.My only reservation would be to recommend for people who find going up and down stairs a problem - the staircase is rather narrow and steep (no lifts) -in this case ask for the ground floor apartment.All said and done a great place in a great location.

    Great location, great place!

    from

    We just returned from NYC and a wonderfu stay at Abingdon Guest House.

    The location is EXCELLENT as its central location is about a mile or so from Times Square and SoHo/Little Italy/Chinatown. We stayed in the Garden Room and it was just wonderful. Tastefully decorated and cozy.

    There are only a couple things I would change...the faucet leaked in the bathroom, the hand towel bar wasn't secure on the wall, and the bottom step (leading to our room) is in need of repair. Certainly not things that would affect your stay. I highly recommend this guest house and plan on staying there again in the future!
