... to get some sleep along the way. Lots of laughs too! Chels was cute when we were in transit at KL ... She didn't get much sleep during the first flight and was a bit delirious, laughing at everything!! She said she felt "out of sorts" and described it like this ... 'Tired, but not' ... 'Hungry, but not' ... 'Excited, but not' ... That's exactly how it feels ~ ha ha ha! Although it was a ...
... not being off the bus for that amount of time. We arrived in London a bit late and after grabbing some dinner at Victoria station, we caught the tube out to Shephards Bush. Our friends from home, Nick and Nat, kindly offered to have us to stay, and seeing as we are hoping to go the famous 'Walkabout' bar in the morning to support the All blacks, we took them up on that offer. The bar is only a 10 minute walk from their house, so this would be very convenient.
... too cold over there its actually been such hot summer over here almost as hot as the one we just had in Australia hahaha.
Alex went on a pub crawl with work yesterday it sounded like good fun there were about 30-40 guys from work and they went round various pubs in kingston for about 12 hours! He is also looking to buy a car now we have confirmation we are here for another 6 months,
The flight to London was relatively uneventful & comfortable in business class on British Airways. The seating arrangement was somewhat novel to say the least. We chose seats together in the center section. On each side was another person facing in the opposite direction & separated from us by a partition that could be raised or lowered. The seats would fully recline so that when connected with the footrest, one ...
... in that sense though, so I guess it's little surprise. After the show we went for dinner and drinks with Joanne, as it's her last night before she goes traveling Europe prior to her return home to Canada. It was a really fun night overall, and again, really nice to see off another one of my teacher friends who's going to be home soon. I guess I'll be the next one! So that's it for London entries in this blog! Next week will be from Dublin, and the week after will be from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Premier Shaftsbury London Kensington
Just an ordinary hotel!
My husand and me stayed in this hotel for three nights in June, the price rate is at US$124/night including breakfast. It's just an ordinary hotel and pls do not expect too much! The room is quite spacious and clean but without air-con. The room furnished with simple & old-used furniture & fixtures. What's more, part of the staff are in "long-faced".
My husband and I stayed at the Hogarth for 2 nights. I had booked the hotel on the internet after reading positive reviews on the Tripadvisor. We arrived very late or rather very early in the morning at around 2 AM.We were checked through very quickly with no hassles.
I have just come back from a weekend in London and I stayed at the Hogarth. It was the worst hotel I have ever come across in my entire life!
Overpriced but rooms larger than normal
I stayed 2 nights at this hotel & paid £65/night. The rooms are slightely larger than other budget hotels. There was no refrigerator as stated in a previous room however the lift was working. The room price did not include breakfast which I discovered upon arrival which I was very disappointed with given that I could get a room for the same price including breakfast closer to the centre.
Overall, the room is pleasent to stay in if that's where you spend most of your day. Hoever if you are only there to sleep then I think there are better options where you can get breakfast included & a more central location.
We stayed here for 6 nights in March. It was located at a nice location, very close to the subway station(Earl's Court) which can take you anywhere in London. I would advise taking the subway instead of taxis, since you will have to pay $$$$ for just a 10 min taxi ride. And there are various restaurants and pubs near the hotel. The hotel room was very small, compared to some of the other hotels we stayed in various countries in Europe. Hotel staff was very nice..We got a package deal through our travel agency and only paid $63 a night for a double room, which was worth it..If you didn't get this package deal, and booked the hotel while in London, it would have been triple the price(which is definitely not worth it)....Overall experience is nice, although each late night while we were there, you can hear various drunken people out on the street and being very loud.
The hotel was great deal. We stayed here in September. I recommend a room w/AC during the warm months. Also surprised to find that it also had a small refridgerator in the room. A few nearby pubs.
Nice hotel but overpriced
Hotel was nice tho I thought it was kinda overpriced. We stayed there twice in like a month and both times the elevator was out of service and there were no more fans to hand out either. It being July and extremely hot, this gave a small problem. The staf are quite friendly, some too friendly, and they got the lock off the window in our room. If you would like breakfast in bed make it known to the receptionist during the day and they can help you, no extra costs. I would not stay in this hotel again, simply because it is like I said before, overpriced. Even with the special internet rates!!
This hotel was an excellent value for the price. The location is great - Earl's Court is a convenient station & it was nice being able to take the Piccadilly Line directly from Heathrow. There are many restaurants in the area (everything from Chinese & Indian food to McDonald's, Subway & Pizza Hut). Continental breakfast was included with the room.
The Hogarth Hotel
Not knowing where to plant ourselves while in London I opted to find a hotel near a Tube station and risk the possibility of being in a questionable neighborhood but close to transportation. I poked around the Internet and found The Hogarth, in Earl's Court. About 2 blocks from the Earl's Court Station (a very easy walk) and not in a bad neighborhood (mostly Indian), the Hogarth offered convenience at a very reasonable price. The rooms are tiny, though, so be prepared. I'd stay here again, but now that I've been to London I think I'd look around for another hotel first before deciding on the Hogarth. Earl's Court is a nice enough area to stay in, and there are plenty of similar properties to choose from.
This hotel is located on a quiet street but very close to a tube stop. It is very clean & the help is friendly. The restaurant has average food but very slow. We were one of 3 couples for an early dinner and we had to wait over an hour to get our food. We would definitely stay there again.
