    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.

    We've had …

    ... good gentle last push and boom! My luggage just drops. The whole thing is inside! Yes! I huge my exactly caged luggage and sort of whisper shout, 'I never doubted you!" I have an Air Canada carry on. I knew it was protocol size. The flight attendant smiles and gently reminds me that nothing can go back inside the luggage now. Meaning the books and mittens. "Cool!" I am not a great traveller. I know this. I'm disorganized. I lose things. I'm tardy. But I haven't died or contracted a ...

    ... outside area was tiny, it faced the side of the cliff which meant there wasn't anywhere to hang towels to dry over night - Tom popped to reception to check if we could change room.  We had to sleep one night in this room and we could change the day after.  Done.  We we're happy with that.  We showered and changed and went to have dinner at Kanapista Tavern - it was close and did really good food - in fact Tom had the best Veal Stiffado - I didn't hear the end of ...

    ... before in the mall over the road it had sections dedicated to just about all the big name designers. Found myself a really nice dressy coat which was what I had gone looking for and a dress that I spotted on the way to the counter to pay for my coat, saw the dress, tried it on and bought it all in under 3 minutes, I am actually scaring myself at my shopping efficiency here haha. Back to the hotel to squeeze our purchases into our already overweight and ...

    ... similar design and layout to that but there were actually less exhibits and it was hard to see anything because it was pretty crowded. It didn't take long to go around and we had more time to spare so we decided to walk back through regents park and hyde park.

    There were squirrels everywhere when we had walked through before, I had some left over pistachio nuts from Spain and since I figured that I probably couldn't take them to Australia I tried feeding the ...
