... get the opportunity to explore several parks and museums, as I had to find free ways to entertain myself while not working. It is very hard to go from being a saver, to having less than 10£ in your account on a regular basis. I don't need to make a ton of money, but I would like to know that I can comfortably survive, and not have to tell my parents everytime I talk to them, I need more money from my Canadian account, just to eat, pay rent/bills etc. This was probably my ...
... and found a really great pizza place, where we ordered a combo thing of 3 pizzas, garlic bread, and hot wings, which we totally devoured. Bonus: it's totally hot here, and I ventured out without my red rain jacket. Literally unprecedented for this trip. We then went to see some sights, and considering we left around 4:30, we got a lot in. We started at the London Eye, which was really cool - when you're walking, it looks like it's not moving, but ...
... Sarah during our Induction (training) week. She is also here for a 2 year assignment, from the German office. She is living in the SE (but further to the east, whereas I am further to the south) near a humongous Tesco grocery store – like a mega HEB. She was able to find a hair dryer at her local store – and bought it for me. I was so grateful and overwhelmed – it’s the small kindnesses that people show that are always the most touching and ...
... can only be described as, wobbling down the isle and asked where seat 28e was. now I'm no expert but when you walk down and you pass rows 17,16,15 and so on shouldn't something just click that you just might be heading in the wrong direction. the 2nd woman then asked if her seat was the same; well I sincerely hope for the sake of the Ryan air death toll that they weren't sat on each other's lap. I would just like to add as ...
After twenty three days on vacation, most of them in one locale, the whole travel experience can start to feel a bit stale. We've seen more sensational, quaint, beautiful and historic buildings/statues/locales than we could in an entire year in Canada, and that can cause a bit of an overload--"Oh look, another gloriously quaint English garden. Whoop-de-doo!" Today was not the first time we managed to retread some of the ground we'd already covered, but it was the first ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blakemore Hyde Park London
Not the best choice...just ok
My husband and I stayed in this hotel in March 2003. I wouldn't recommend staying here due to the run down appearance of the rooms. I was disappointed in the hotel because our room had some peeling wallpaper, had no iron-I had to go to another room which just had been vacated to iron. That room was more updated.
Here are my general thoughts: Negatives: Room was small and outdated Double bed is morelike a full size bed Shower stall was small
Positives: Friendly staff Maid service generally did very well Free continental breakfast-basic Good short walking distance from the Bayswater Tube station and main street which had many shops
I would rate this place a 2* hotel...it's ok but there are probably better choices :)
Recently spent two nights at the Blakemore booking a exec. double for two. Upon walking into the room, it was apparent that a double bed at the Blakemore is only a USA full size bed. It was fine for one person or two small kids, but for adults over 45, it doesn't work. I would suggest requesting a double with 2 twin size beds. The shower was approx. 28" x 28" in size, so it is good to be thin if you stay there.
Stayed a couple of days, about 300 meters from Hyde Park, close to a Cyber Cafe so that was good keeping in touch, and a small grocery store beside it.....room was tiny but good enough for 1 person, and London is really expensive... got complementary breakfast which was okie.... nice place would stay there again...
Melissa Masino Review
When it comes to visiting London, you probably want to save where you can. Hotels can be pricey, so that's why I chose the Blakemore Hotel. Perfect area...right across from Hyde Park, walking to distance to Prince Albert Memorial and Hall, Harrods, shopping, and of course...the tube. You're on the red line, so easy access to the shopping of Oxford Street and the theaters by Tottenham Court Road. Also a quick tube ride to picadilly, leister square and covent garden. The drawbacks are the thin walls and small rooms, but who cares. How much time are you really in your room? They are clean, there's a bar in the hotel, continental breakfast (nice), and it's a safe area. Definite thumbs up. Not a four star hotel, but great for a budget. NICE FRIENDLY STAFF TOO!
