... and went to explore Harrods. A world famous over priced shopping centre which is far to fancy for this op shop lover. Last night we all went to the theater to see my favorite childhood musical the Lion King. The production was amazing, I had goose bumps throughout the whole show. Today I went to Oxford St. on my own for some shopping. The shops were amazing and each time I went inside to the multi layered shops I ...
Today was a rainy day and it rained on and off all day. We started the day at the Portabella Market which is in Notting Hill. This is the place where Hugh Grant walks through the market and they show the seasons changing in the movie Notting Hill. Very cool. Inexpensive clothes and antiques. It also gets crazy busy with people so we went early and left around noon. Next we went to the Camdon Markets which is a million little vendors located in a ...
what really got me to buy their product was the fact they allowed my try
virtually anything that was available there.
The salesperson was rather helpful
and yes a bit pushy too. That said overall I felt the products from Sakare are
worth every single penny that you spend on it.

Historical Traveler Reviews Berjaya Eden Park London Hotel - United Kingdom
Go for the Misery
Do not be fooled by any brochures you see highlighting tastefully spacious rooms as unless you book the honeymoon suite you are best advised to breathe in at all times, such is the shear tinyness of the place. Also the hotel was frequented by some of the most miserable people you'll ever meet (though the night porter was very cheerful and kind). Still it is cheap, semi attractive and relatively comfortable even if the heating remains on all night so one bakes to death (I must mention I only paid ?39 per night so in theory I can have no complaints)
I spent three nights in London, and I choosed the Eden Park Hotel because of the offered price (GBP 49,- or approx. EUR ~70,-). London is really expensive, this location was presented as 4 star hotel, thus I thought the price would be okay. !!I have never been in such a small hotel room!! The room was located below the ground floor, but it was equipped with a window. The corridor was so narrow, that two persons were not able to pass by. The bathroom was extremely tiny. Breakfast was okay, but only offered limited choice. Location is excellent, it is just a few blocks to the next tube station. In my opinion this hotel (and many other hotels) does not deserve a four star rating . I would give them only 2 stars. Additionally I was surprised by the fact that such hotels (small rooms, narrow corridors...) are allowed to be operates. Aren't there sufficient laws which force the management to make their hotel safer?
The hotel was okay for the price and location. Based on the reviews of this hotel, we were prepared for the tiny rooms. I imagine that it would be a shock if not prepared. Our choice to find a hotel in this area was driven by our desire to stay near friends in the local area.
Wow was this place a bad choice! We stayed here for 4 days in September, we (my sister and I) had just checked out from the Henry Viii hotel which was just 2 1/2 blocks away and what a 360 in rooms and service. We found the staff to be uptight and rude at times, not at all helpful like we had previously encountered. We had to wait 2 extra hours than our first hotel for our room to be ready, and once we were able to go to the room we had to go up separately in the elevator because it could only hold one person and their luggage at a time and even that was barely! The hallways were teeny tiny and the rooms to match! The beds were squeaky the t.v. only worked if it was turned on for approx. an hour and the bathroom was a joke! it was sooo small and cramped. I guess you can tell by now we were not quite fond of it at all. That was 4 days tooo long! On our 2nd night the fire alarm went off twice! around 11 and 12 midnight which was ok I guess because we were already up from the club noise down stairs that we had to endure because there was no fan so we were forced to keep the window open because of the heat! and when we called to ask about the fire alarm I was snapped at by the reception desk and rudely hung up on! Dinner was too expensive to have there and if you weren't out of your room by at least 10 a.m. the cleaning ladies wouldn't clean your room! we came back 3 times to find the room exactly how we left it, only difference was the beds were done. The only good thing and I stress ONLY was that the Bayswater station and stores were just around the corner from the hotel. So all in all don't stay here if you have ANy choice what so ever! I paid over $100 and look what it got us.
Take the upgrade - it was great!
We stayed here over a weekend mid-June. We had a killer rate originally thru Entertainment Card (61 pounds) but took the upgrade to the Patio Suite for 90 pounds which is pretty good in London. The room was very spacious and quiet with a private balcony overlooking a small church garden, living room and bedroom. The other bedrooms were average for London but cleaner than most I have seen.Hotel was originally three buildings connected together so it could be an adventure finding your room if you did not follow the signs.Location great one small block to Queensway tube station. Staff was very accomodating and hard working. I was very impressed and would recommend this hotel.
OK for the price
Stayed for 4 nights - and by the 5th day, I was definitely ready to leave. The room wasn't bad in the respect that it was clean and had all the necessary amenities. However, it was ridiculously small and cramped - once we had our bags opened (not even unpacked) there was barely enough room to move about. There were also 2 twin beds - one of them had a spring sticking out, making it quite uncomfortable to sleep on for an hour, let alone 4 nights! The staff seemed somewhat helpful, but not entirely friendly. The bar downstairs is a nice touch - cozy and warm, but again the staff took away from the bar's physical charm. The location of this hotel makes it very convenient, but for the $$, it was just sort of blah.
We had expected a bit more and were disappointed when we first entered our room. We were used to small, but there was no charm about the room and one of the beds was right up against window and heater. The bathroom was clean, but old and the toilet was in the center making it not very practical. We would not complain if we had not paid over $100.00 for the room which was worth around $60.00. We attempted to find another room in the Bayswater area, but having looked at others figured that that was the norm for the area and we know how expensive London is. There was nothing terrible about the room or hotel, but we just wanted a nicer to stay in for the 4 nights. The street was noisy, but that is to be expected. The beds were thin, but comfortable enough. The breakfast was served until 10:00 which was good for us and it was pretty good and nice to start the day with. The location is next to 2 metro stops, so it is convenient. The staff was helpful. All in all, we had a great trip to london and spent hardly any time in the hotel room, so it was ok. the most important thing it was clean and safe. however, i would probably not stay there again. if you are looking for just somewhere to lay your head with little or no charm, then this will be adequate for you.
Superb find nestled in excellent Location
Happened upon this great hotel on website www.oldh.net. Offered good value for money prices including a lovely breakfast. Location was a stones throw from Hyde Park and only 1 minute away from tube stations. Friendly staff and very clean throughout. Will look forward to my next visit, even offer a hotel loyalty program for repeat guests.
