London Part 2

London part 2 nearly started with a lot less luggage than before (which wouldn't have been a bad thing) after the doors shut with half of our stuff still on the platform in Glasgow. We managed to lug it on to the train somehow and once again annoyed most of our friends in the carriage over 4 and a half hours back to Euston. Once more we managed to somehow stuff 5 suitcases, 4 people, a couple of scooters and some other random stuff into a London cab ...

Drury, so very English.

... expensive here, when we come home I think we will live on roast legs of lamb for a time. We bought some beef for a big pot of beef stew, with lots of veges, I can hear Margaret from here saying "yuk".

After shopping we went to a cafe for a coffee for me and a tea for Russ, check out our cups and the brand of tea, we were impressed, how's that (Debbie and Dave) Bushell's have some competition. We got a message from our new phone people to say turn ...

We rented a flat for this trip; three bedrooms, a kitchen, a common room, and a walled back patio.  It is in the Elephant & Castle neighborhood, convenient to underground stations and the Westminster Bridge.  Leslie found it on airbnb.com, and it is owned by a guy named Bob.  In the reviews, someone whose first language is not English commented on how much they liked "The Place ...

... is a small glass square in the floor up there which looks through to the floor of the Cathedral and is just visible looking up from the Cathedral floor if your neck bends back that far.The last section to the summit is rather a squeeze and I secretly wondered if a size limit should be placed on those wishing to climb as I had visions of serious wedging going on! Going down was easier, though I did say at one stage it did remind me of clambouring through ...

... down where we could see them, i huge boo went up followed by a cheer as he flew away....very funny! By the time i got home i was feeling disastrous......the contiki cough that some of them on the Ireland tour had i think was catching up with me and thankfully at 10.30pm a local chemist was open where i couldn't stock up on some much needed sore throat spray, Vitamins and Minerals along with a plethora of tissues!! And so comes to an end, Day 2 of my London ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Airways Hotel Victoria London

    Great Budget Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Airways Hotel for 7 nights from September 15th to September 22nd and I truly believe it is a great option for budget travellers. When I was planning my trip, I wanted a clean room in a central location. The Airways exceeded my expectations. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the hotel is a few minutes walk from the Victoria tube station, grocery stores and shops. I easily walked from the Airways to Buckingham Palace. The only downside is the size of the room and the bathroom (I had a single room). But, the room was cleaned everyday and the bathroom was spotless. Also, the breakfast is included and there is free internet access downstairs. (And there's also an Internet Cafe close to Victoria Tube.) I have heard so many horror stories about Europeen hotel rooms so I wasn't expecting much. The Airways turned out to be a very nice surprise. I fell in love with London, so if I go back (no wait...WHEN I go back) I'll be sure to stay at the Airways again. Cheers!

    Great Staff, Good Value, and Internet Access

    from

    With the value of the US dollar dropping like a lead weight vis a vis the UK pound, its hard to find a convenient, pleasant stay in London for under $100 per night. The Airways met this goal: $80 for a single room, including a very comfortable bed, free DSL access to the Internet in the breakfast room, and in-room coffee and tea and minifridge. Its all within a 10 minute walk of Victoria Station (and the Gatwick Airport Express), and easy walking distance to Chelsea, Pimlico, and Westminster. The Airways clientele is a mix of European youth and older middle-income US and UK travellers. The staff is personable, friendly, and very helpful (they located a moving van service before I checked in). Between the included English breakfast and a very good nearby Sainsbury's market with lots of ready-to-eat takeaway meals, you can eat on less than $8 per day or splurge on good local restaurants.

    Good For Budget

    from

    This hotel was better than I expected. I had a bad experience at a budget hotel last year, and the Airways was 100% better, and cheaper, than that hotel. They arranged a discount fare to Heathrow for us, 30GBP. The breakfast was good, real orange juice, not that orange colored watery stuff, which is a bonus. Room was warm, but had a fan and a large window, but weather was unseasonably warm the first week of September. Easy walking distance to my favorite Turkish Kabob stand and Victoria Station.

    It's all about money

    from

    After reading all the reviews about the hotels in London, our conclusion is that, if you visit London on a budget, the room will be small and no A/C. If you are lucky, the room will be clean and tidy with no smelly mould.

    Small but clean and convenient

    from

    The hotel is very easy to get to from Gatwick, but not so easy from Heathrow. However, they did have a deal with a cab company to take us back to Heathrow for 30 pounds (for the car, not per person) which was a great deal. The breakfast came with the room. It was a full english breakfast with an egg, beans, toast, sausage, bacon, OJ, and coffee or tea. All in all, it was great. There are a lot of buses and tubes that go to Victoria station and it was about a 10 minute walk from there. The only problem with it was the bathroom, which was tiny. You almost had to walk in backwards and your knees would hit the door. But it was clean and I think the location and the breakfast was worth the price.

    Keyword: BUGDGET

    from

    Okay, I have no idea how this place got good reviews. We chose this hotel after reading the reviews on tripadvisor, but i'm telling you, don't stay here unless you're really really flexible. The bed was sooooo old and the springs dug into your back, and the bathroom was the size of a closet. literally. the toilet was in the shower compartment, and you banged your elbows everytime you bent them cause it was so tight. it was musty, and unpleasant. we moved to another hotel the next morning.

    Great hotel at a reasonable price

    from

    I stayed at the Airways in late March. It was all that I had hoped for. The price was right, it is in a great location for getting around London(a few minutes walk to Victoria Train Station) and the surrounding neighborhood had everything I needed for my stay(grocery stores, Pubs, good places to eat, and it was quiet at night). The room I had was a little on the small side, but was clean and comfortable. The breakfast included with the room was filling and a great start to the day. The staff was very helpful and it was a relief knowing that when I got back to the hotel they would be someone at the front desk in case I had any questions. I am already planning to stay there for my return trip next year. I believe that for the value, the Airways Hotel cannot be beat.

    Great Bargain Hotel

    from

    Airways was reasonably priced, clean, well located. It offered a good breakfast, free internet access in the basement, close to Sainsbury's (4 blocks away) Victoria Station, Cafe Nero, Boots and several pubs with pretty good food. We had a family room with three beds and an ensuite bath for 90 pounds per day bed and breakfast. They put us on the first floor at my request because we had a person who was mobility impaired. On the down side, no parking, no lift.

    Airways is Super Charming!

    from

    The Airways hotel is a great value for many reasons being on the same block as dozens of other choices. It is located within very easy walking distance of Victoria train and coach stations( we easily rolled our luggage down the street from the tube) and several other major attractions like Westminster, and the Palace were about a nice 20-30 minute walk. Within 5 min walking distance is a Tesco grocery store which was handy since we had a fridge in the room. Our room was on the 2nd floor in the back of the building. (very quiet) . The room was clean and comfortable but nothing looked too new. We had a tv, hair dryer, coffeemaker, large fridge, nice bathroom with a opening window, wonderful shower pressure, and it was pretty large by london standards.
