... new shorts and a sweater. After that we headed back to the hotel for a short rest. Jeed watched more of the world cup. In the evening we headed out looking for somewhere to eat. We finally settled on an Italian restaurant quite close to the hotel, although we walked several blocks before settling on “Taormina”. The kids were quite hungry and ate pizza and spaghetti. The service was very good, as was the food. After that it was back to the hotel. ...
After checking in to our hotel and getting somewhat refreshed we headed out to go to the British Museum. We did not visit this museum two years ago and I wanted to make sure we got there this time. The British Museum has very large antiquity collections from ancient Greece and Egypt along with other civilizations in Asia, Africa, and Europe. The one object they have that I wanted to see was the ...
... time with the flight duration being 7.5 hours. Our scheduled arrival time into London Heathrow was 2:20pm and even with the delay we would still make our "Welcome Drinks" with our Tour Director and fellow travellers in the Hotel Foyer at 6:00pm. How wrong we were.
On our arrival into Heathrow we learnt that the Customs and Immigration computer system had crashed and long delays to clear customs. The incoming Hall ...
... had impressive military careers as well. I toured the Tower for a good 3 hours. I ventured into many of the towers including the White Tower and the Crown Jewel Tower. The Crown Jewels are a jaw dropper! The detail and size of the gems left me speechless. They didn't allow picture to be taken for security reasons but what I can tell you is that all the Jewels are housed in a vault with 3 foot thick doors. Only complaint from me, and many others, about the Tower ...
... with the coffee shop looming upstairs, with their unique 5 tiered white chocolate covered cake, we know we're in trouble! Snapping ducks.... It was delicious! As we waddled out, half asleep due the sugar hit, we find ourselves in Hamleys toy shop (established in 1760) Yep, into our wallets we go again to buy toys for our grand kids, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ace Hotel London Shoreditch
Pleasant and cool
Good sized modern chic rooms, staff very helpful and only 5 minutes walk to the tube.
Gym facilities very limited but for a touristy type break this is a well above average place to lay your head. Restuarant is well worth a visit , great food, stylish layout and fantastic view over the city at night.
If you are not on a B&B basis , the greasy spoon directly over the road is brilliant.
stayed at the gregory for one nite...the room was delicious...but no windows open which ment we were slaves to the iar conditioning, the room catered our every need, the problem was the next morning, from 8.30 am we were being hassled by the maid to leave the room....3 times she tried entering the room...this totally spolit it for me and i would not stay there again, i felt like they were hurling us out for the next punter, check out time was `10.30 am....not 8.30 which is what the maid seemed to think.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Saint Gregory on January 13th 2005 for 4 nights after getting a good deal of about 80 quid on the Internet complete with full English brekkie!. We're ex-pats who live in Milan, Italy and had come over for the January sales. We usually stay at the Hilton Olympia but there were no special offers going so we had to look elsewhere. I'd already done my homework on this Hotel by reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, which although I don't treat as a bible, is still undoubtedly useful for getting a clearer picture on what Hotels are really like. Although we don't go for 5-star, we don't like staying in flea-pit hotels either and London is notorious for having many of those so we find that the 4-star level usually hits the mark. This Hotel was less than a year old and literally 5 mins. away from Liverpool Street Station, which although wasn't really the part of London we're used to, was still pretty central. It's situated on Shoreditch High street so we were in the heart of that nouveau trendy (but sometimes trashy!) part of town with all the bars/clubs etc, so it can get a little bit mad maybe towards the weekend. It's slightly more off the beaten track and less location-friendly than say, Kensington High St. and there's a tad more walking to do when you get off the tube as Liverpool St. is massive with loads of exits but the Central line takes you straight to Bond St. etc and there is a bus stop with loads of buses going into town literally right outside the hotel! There's a 24 hour Tesco supermarket outside Liverpool St, but if you prefer Sainsbury's you may have to travel further afield. A hat-trick of trendy week-end markets; Spitalfield's, Petticoat Lane & Brick Lane, are all within a stone's throw too plus funky shops selling a plethora of stuff like retro furniture if you're into that sort of thing!! We are! After being greeted by a minimal, slick foyer with blazing 200 watt lights (get dimmers in, people!), our room, which was extremely quiet, was of moderate size, extremely clean, modern and contemporarily furnished. The same could be said of the bathroom (hi-tech design like Kaldawei bath, Grohe taps etc) which had the usual swanky soap/shampoo/shower gel accessories. However, the real highlight of this hotel has to be the breakfast room situated on the top floor with floor to ceiling glass-fronted balcony and main room showing stunning, panoramic views across London. Abundant free copies of a daily newspaper too! That said, the service during breakfast was a bit impersonal with a distinct lack of moral amongst the moody waiters and long pauses between the buffet being replenished. Food was pretty good with a varied selection of hot and cold items, from watermelon to smoked salmon. Even kippers made a surprised but very welcome appearance on the Monday! The eggs were scrambled, but beware if you ask for a fried egg, you might get your head bitten off...which was a scene I witnessed happening to a poor unsuspecting guest! Oh, and try not to get there too late, especially at the weekend, as you may have to wait to be seated (instead of choosing your own seat... obviously with the best views!) because of overcrowding and the buffet kind of goes to pot, with rapidly vanishing food and kitchen staff too!. After having an almost luxurious, leisurely situation on the Thursday and Friday, with only about 4 others in the room at any one time, it was quite an abrupt shock to the system to see it all plunge into bustling unorganised mayhem come Saturday and Sunday! You've been warned...
My fiance and I stayed at the St. Gregory October of 2004. The hotel is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The only problem was that our voice mail did not work the entire time we stayed there. The location is terrible. It is a brisk 12-15 minute walk to the Lancaster Underground/Tube stop. If you come from a train station or airport with luggage take a taxi to the hotel. The area of the hotel is questionable with several gentlemen's clubs right next door. We were not comfortable walking in the area late at night and would not recommend single females to walk alone late at night. In addition to the 15 minute walk to the tube stop you then have a minumum of 20 minutes on the metro to get to any popular London destinations. The included breakfast was OK. Next time I go to London, I would stay closer to Westminster or Victoria
A so fine hotel should be more correct.......
A so fine hotel should be more correct with its guests! It's a very miserable to pay the breakfast in a four stars hotel, with the unhappy excuse of on-line booking.
It's very stylish and elegant hotel, the room I had was very nicely designed and tidy, with really comfortable beds...what a shame!
Stayed at the Saint Gregory in early Oct (a bit of delay in getting this done I know) as a weekend get away with my partner. We didn't know what to expect as it was so new but we were pleasantly surprised. The welcome and service was friendly but afficient and our room was immaculate as was the rest of the hotel. We had a lovely lunch (thank you again to the chef) in the resutarant that has lovely veiws across London. Although we had a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel we were not disturbed by the traffic or noise. Breakfast was ample and although the hotel was modern and a little buiness like (I guess due to its location) we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. Oh yes, you can hop on the bus just by the hotel and in two minutes are are Liverpool Street Station. Would definately stay at the Saint Gregory again.
Super value for price
had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. located a step beside but via bus (55) and u-ground (liverpool street) no problem heading for all you wanna see in town. rooms perfectly made, tidy, what´s best are the beds: i´m a so called problem-sleeper an nights were great.
breakfast is ok, good-quality-food, location is great with a stunning view over london, prices a not too high, so what eles do you want for a 2-night-stay in london?
We stayed at the St. Gregory twice last summer. I would happily stay there again. Our room was very well equipped with really comfortable beds. The room and the bathroom were very stylish. The top floor restaurent was fine for breakfast with good open views, but not looking out on any very special buildings. The other visitors seemed an interesting mix of young media types and a diverse group of people from various parts of the world. I didn't like the food in the bar downstairs and some of the modern style in the lobby looked almost silly rather than smart, but I wouldn't say it was like a Days Inn. It was more interesting and more comfortable here. For a good and inexpensive meal there are some really wonderful Vietnamese cafes farther along the Shorditch Road (I think it was). The Geffrye Museum (of historical interiors) is a short walk away and worth seeing. The coffee shop there is very nicely designed and the food fine.
Excellent - stunning value in a stylish and elegant package. The staff are welcoming and helpful, and the rooms just right for a business trip. Best of all, the location makes it perfect for a City stopout (!) at a very reasonable price. I got up too late to check out the breakfast bar, which looked a bit limited... I'll update this review when I've had a chance to check it out. Incredibly, I find myself looking forward to the next late-nighter in the office, so I can stay there again!
