    Great Service


    They serve all you can eat/drink; fresh toast, jam, cereal, milk, orange juice & coffee. Their breakfast room is kinda small so you might have to wait a little bit for a seat. Great service, they gave us a small suite with sofa, fridge, plates & utensils for double price room.

    You get what you pay for


    For the price that we paid for this hotel, we get a decent accomodation with a private bathroom.

    The room is small but clean, the bathroom is clean, it's got television and telephone, and there is no charge for using the phone for a toll free number. They cleaned our room everyday and we got clean towels everyday. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is cozy. We got a free breakfast in the morning which consist of toast with butter and jelly, breakfast cereal, milk, coffee, and orange juice.

    There is no air condition in the room, so we have to open the window to cool off the room. The trouble came when it started to rain which happens a lot in London. The rain would come in through the open window, but if we close the window, the room could become rather warm.

    The location is not too great especially in the evening. It is not recommended for a woman traveller to walk alone at night around this area. But it is relatively close to a train station where many tube lines stop. It's about 10 minute walk from the hotel to the King Cross Station.

    ... we emerged from the lecture theatre, a (pricey) farmer’s market was set up on Queen’s Lawn. We had lunch and wandered around it for a while before going back in for the final lecture, entitled Plagues and People, and the closing ceremony. The lecture was all about how pandemics threaten our society and the science behind how they occur, in particular virus’, which actually insert extra DNA into your genome ...

    ... so I had my photo op moments. The lovely ladies dressed in fuchsia, lots of makeup, and up-dos took my photos. I was escorted to Table 91. The table was dressed in linen and decorated with flowers and fine silverware. Tessa walked up to Table 92 and saw that we were sitting next to each other and asked me to join her. The "Pink Ladies" gathered my stuff and I was now sitting with Tessa from the Netherlands. We were immediately ...

    ... We got dressed then went out for dinner at a Indian place. I had scallops, pawns and squid in a vegetable curry sauce. After that we had to quickly walk up to our play called "Matilda". It was one of the many British plays and was funny and I liked it. One cool thing was while we at the play there was a group of Canadian students in front of us. They were from Port Perry and were in the band. The play was funny and made me laugh a few times. ...

    ... noticed the day before turned out to be an old dent that we just missed likely due to jet lag when we were doing the once over. (when I say 'we' I mean that in the most broad sense as I didn't look at the car at all)
    From there we went to the tube station (LOVING our new roll along luggage) and got some passes for the week and set off for Southwark station to find our apartment.
    We're really making use of the sim card in the phone as well. Maps, maps, ...

    ... the palace was passed back to King Henry VIII, who enlarged it. The following century, King William III's massive rebuilding and expansion project intended to rival Versailles was begun. Work halted in 1694, leaving the palace in two distinct contrasting architectural styles, domestic Tudor and Baroque. While the palace's styles are an accident of fate, a unity exists due to the use of pink bricks and a symmetrical, albeit vague, balancing of successive low wings. Along with St. ...
