    Historical Traveler Reviews Arriva Hotel London

    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.

    After waiting almost 2 hours at the arrivals gate I saw the three familiar faces I've been waiting to see forever! However Dan did make a U-turn before exiting the gates to check out the bottlo one last time. Finally we were together again! We piled into a taxi and headed off to our hotel catching up on everything in between.

    -The tube stations sometimes have loos (bathrooms, for you yanks), though you have to pay about 30 pence to use them. Yes, London is so expensive that you have to pay to ****

    -Drinking age here (and in most of Europe, pretty sure) is 18. Makes for a slightly different atmosphere; the pub I went to in Bath (big college town) was filled with giggling, tipsy, 18 year old kids. Not like 18 year olds in the US don't drink anyway, but ...

    ... transport system. It is ingenious how the lines link up and no sooner do you get off one train and walk over to your next one, 'voila' the next train is there .

    After disembarking at Knightsbridge, we went into Harrods where we were overwhelmed by how luxurious and extravagant this store really is. I was determined to buy something from Harrods just to say that I had and flaunt that famous green bag as ...
