Today was a busy day. We started by walking from our hotel (Blades on Belgrave Road) toward the Thames. We continued up Whitehouse road past Tate Britain up to Parliament. After admiring Parliament and Westminister Abbey we continued onward. We reached Trafalgar square and saw the National Portrait Gallery. We then continued on Strand street were …
... into Heathrow at about 4:30pm, clearing customs and buying a couple of Oyster cards put us on the tube at 6ish. It's amazing, this place, cruising along the tube listening to the voice over on the train, then out of the tunnel of darkness we see the wonderful burrows of London. Love this place, the burrows, with their little corner stores/off licences keeping their little burrow/suburb alive and well. Green Park was the change of trains from the Piccadilly line onto the ...
... all in bound trains so ended taking 45 min to get to Paddington. But they offered all passages on express refund. So will be getting a refund sent to us so good for us. Saved money first day lol. Probably be the only time Then got to the hotel unpacked off toward the London Eye. We stopped off for lunch at fish n chip place there was a line up so we their it would be good but it was really greasy. So not to thrilled with lunch. So off to the London sea aquarium ...
... which was confusing at first. Wasn’t sure if the whole thing was going to be that way, or if eventually it would change to English. Actually, there were many parts of the play where French or Indian was used, but it didn’t detract from the play. However, it was very confusing. Not knowing the storyline, I was needless to say, very lost in what was happening. About 45 minutes into the show, I finally leaned in and whispered to Miriam, "What ...
We played Street Monopoly today. We took the Tube from Waterloo to Piccadilly and walked passed Coventry Street, Regent Street and Bond Street. We took a second tube ride to Knightsbridge so that we could go to Harrods. I let Anne inside this time (as opposed to Cartier in Paris where I made sure she didn't go inside) but she resisted ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blair Victoria Hotel London
I booked this hotel through Superbreaks at York. I needed a hotel close to Victoria Coach station and the employee of Superbreaks said it was close and would be ok. I paid £72 by credit card for one nights B & B.
Our one-night stay last November was a complete disaster - and we were charged £133 for the privilege! I had hoped that things had changed there by now (as Lastminute promised to check it out after we had complained to them - but I see they are still advertising this place) - what a shame people are still being duped by the promise of a good place to stay in London!
This place was the pits. I checked out 30 minutes after checking in. The room was filthy, the lights did not work, the shower was gawdawful. I can't believe they are still opened. The did not refund me the one night but I disputed through my credit card and got a refund. Avoid this place, a hostel would be cleaner and safer. The Hamilton House down the road was a better bet for me.
Never again. Filthy, peeling door paint and floor under the sink, mildew on shower tiles, just filthy, filthy filthy. This is a health warning - DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
For once I forgot to check out the TripAdvisor on this one and I left myself to be impressed with their website, as they had a special offer.
after viewing this property on the website, it looked decent enough for the pric. boy were we wrong....we got there around 11p on 2/19/04 after a long delayed train trip from paris. there were 4 of us staying in two double rooms....when my husband and i got to our room, we could barely open the door cause the bed took up the whole room not to mention the bathroom was sooo small that your knees touched the door when you sat down. plus when you sat down the whole "capsule" that you were in moved....it was completely disgusting. we headed down to my in-laws room and they had loose wires and lights in their bathroom. we immediately called the marriott in which we had reservations for the last three nights and they had rooms available so after arguing with the hotel clerk for about another 20 minutes, we got a refund on all but one room charge for one night which we are disputing. he was very rude but we explained their hotel was completely misrepresented and the hallway and stairs looked like it was going to collapse....thank god for the marriott regents park. it was beautiful and definitely a sight for sore eyes. even though it was more costly, the cleanliness and safety was more important than money. i am a travel agent and would never ever recommend such a horrible place as the blair victoria.
We recently stayed at the Blair Victoria and were disgusted with the accomodations. The bathroom and shower were so tiny, we had to step out into the room to lather up . The tiny shower had layers of mold dropping from the peeling paint on the walls and the ceiling. The bedspread was filthy and had a horrible odor. The matresses in our tiny, tiny rooms were filthy and also smelled terrible. Payment had to be made up front (with no refunds)thus forcing us to stay in this terrible place. We don't mind staying in small rooms but there was no excuse for this level of filth.
Very unfortunate experience
My family of 4 had reservations at the Blair Victoria for 4 nights in a quad room. We book this through an online service and it clearly stated the price and the fact that it was 4 people. Upon arrival the discourteous people in the lobby said this price is not correct, you cannot stay in this type of room for this much money (during which time the clerk at the counter was picking his nose). Since I had stayed other places before, we decided to just move-on and find another B&B, which we did at the same price the Euro Hotel at cartwright gardens, price was the same and it was beautiful with great service. Although when we left they agreed not to charge us, a charge has shown up on our credit card statement. But this will be in dispute for a while.
On a recent trip to London, my husband and I stayed at this hotel. Well, sort of. See, we made reservations via an online service and were told that we had a room booked at the Blair Victoria. When we got to the hotel, we found out that we were not in fact staying at the Blair, but at another building (the Tudor Inn) across the street. Well, that wasn't the problem. The problem was this: We were escorted to our room by a man who led us through the doors of the Tudor Inn, down a short hallway, down an extremely narrow, somewhat twisty flight of stairs to a room that was in what we considered the basement. The room was barely big enough for one bed, much less the two that were squeezed in the room. There wasn't even enough room to pull a suitcase past one of the beds because it was so close to a jutting corner of the room. Well, even that wasn't so bad. What really infuriated us was the size of the "bathroom". In most circles, a room must be of at least a certain size to even be considered a room. I've been in phone booths with more room than this "bathroom". It looked like a slip-in fiberglass room, not just shower/tub, but the whole deal.: toilet, shower, sink all in about a 3 x 3 closet. You couldn't even go in the "room" and close the door to get undressed or anything. This was the most ridiculous accommodation I've ever had, especially for the price. I took digital pictures of this joke just so I could show my friends and family. No one will believe me when I tell them how small it was; at least I have proof. On a better note, the hotel is in a pretty good location for food and a sight seeing base, but look elsewhere if you want friendly service, a comfortable room, and your money's worth. We suggest the ARRAN HOUSE INN near the GOODGE ST Tube Station. The young ladies working at the hotel really make you feel at home!
