    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 …

    Mark Ruffalo is the nicest guy. Very naughty. Graham loves him. A lot of the show was unfit for general viewing.

    (I did miss Thor though, as did Graham, I thought)

    The taping ended. We were ushered to the back stage area into the 'Green' room.
    Red wine in hand trying not to act like an over excited idiot. I asked Athena to take a photo of me next to the sign on the door. (for proof they let me back here)

    ... New York has three airports that cater to the millions of tourists and visitors every year. They are LGA, JFK, and EWR. When you are planning a trip to the city you could conduct an online search which shows the lowest fares for all three airports from your city of origin. As there are different airports to arrive and leave from there is no need to worry about any car rental. Travelling from EWR (New Jersey) to New York would of course be a bit ...

    ... in Rotherhithe, 33 Albion Street, London is a place to experience a bit of Finland. Like most churches, it's a place of worship. But it's also a meeting place of the Finnish social and cultural life. The Church not only welcomes Finns from across Great Britain and Ireland but also their friends and family from all over the world. From a chance to attend service in the local language to tasting the rye bread, the sauna and other ...

    A Tube Kinda Day

    Today was a relaxed travel day. We all bought a tube pass and used that to get around London. By Sunday when we left to come back to Bangor, we were masters of the underground tube system, and minding the gap.

    We started off at the London Eye, this time to ride it and not just look at it. We bought a two ride ticket. One was for the day ride, and one was for a night ride. The double ride was about the same as a single ride, and the night ...
