Art and rubbing elbows with innovators...

On our last night in London, Dara and I visited the Tate Modern Museum. We saw Picasso mixed with more recent modern art and stayed until the place closed. They had light art installations, photography, statues, and paintings.
Most of the art was abstract, which I really loved, and the …

Tuesday was filled with sight seeing and walking on multiple bridges. We stumbled upon Wahaca - an amazing authentic Mexican restaurant with a great atmosphere, beautiful view of the Thames River (pronounced Tams), and at an excellent price.

The following day we visited the Victoria & Albert Museum, a 7 square mile 5 story building …

Overbooked at Heathrow

A travel blog entry by glyn

Right. Many apologies for not starting the travel blog yet and do please excuse any spelling mistakes. Firstly, I'm safe and generally OK if not all that well in Hong Kong. The first piece of news is that I arrived in Hong Kong a day late as when I arrived at check-in on Sunday, Cathy Pacific had overbooked in economy and where offering a few …

Bumper People and Eerie Stations

A travel blog entry by carpefeline

... the queue to go into the station is so thick that we decide we will just walk until we find another station or a cab, whichever comes first.

Unfortunately, we have to "swim upstream" against a very solid mass of shouting fans and drunken fans and theatre buffs. A policeman at one of the entrances tells us to walk up the street to find Tottenham Court Tube Station and we can get back to Waterloo from there. One would think that as we got a block ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton London - West End

    Great Place to stay!

    from

    Very helpful staff, they helped us arrange tours, helped us with the very confusing phone system the british have. We even extended our stay by 5 days. They are two streets over from the british museum. Very conviently located. The breakfast buffet is not included in the room cost (we found that out the hard way), but it was very delicious. I highly recommend this hotel.

    Loved the Bonnington

    from

    We have just returned from a mid-week theatre break in London. It was the first time we have stayed at this particular hotel, but we have nothing but praise for it. The room was of gigantic proportions and included a double bed, a single bed and also a "pull-out" one!There was room to sit and write postcards at the table and use the writing paper and envelopes if needed. There was also free shower gel, shower caps, a sewing kit, a note pad and a shoe shine sponge. We enjoyed continental breakfast and wern't particularly concerned that it wasn't a full english breakfast.But what was such a personal touch was the fact that my name was included in the "Welcome" on the hotel page Television.Full marks for the Bonnington

    Great Location, Great Hotel

    from

    I have just returned from a weekend at the Bonnington Hotel and I will stay there again the next time I'm in London. The past 4 times I've been to London I've stayed in the Russel Square area, but this was my first time in the Bonnington. The friend I was traveling with suggested it, since she'd stayed there before. The only drawback she said was that the rooms were small...and indeed they are (we took two singles, can't comment on the size of the doubles / twins) but they are very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful (except for one dining room employee). There is a bar and the public areas are nice. The location is great for shopping on Oxford St! The Piccadily line is quite close with easy access to the whole city. I highly recommend the Bonnington. We booked at the last minute through superbreaks and got a very low price of 49 GBP / night!

    My favorite hotel in london

    from

    We have stayed at the Bonnington several times and have always found it to be a great hotel. The rooms were clean and of average size,good size ensuite. The staff is alway helpful and if we wanted to change are room because of its location,no problem. The breakfast is very good as is the great small bar area. You can't beat the location,near two tube stations,bus routes,tour bus stops (Russell Sq). There are pleney of resturants, pubs and great book stores in the area.This hotel is a great choice.

    Why I always stay at the Bonnington

    from

    I stay here for a lot of reasons:1. The value is exceptional -- you can pretty much always find a great rate, and could pay twice as much for no better a room.2. The location is ideal -- within walking distance to the City and to the theaters, or a very short cab ride, and convenient to the Underground, and to buses that go where you are likely to want to go.3. You can get a good sandwich or light meal mid-day, and an after-hours drink, if you are a guest, at a pleasant bar hidden from the street.4. I like the neighborhood of Holborn and Russell Square, with interesting shops, pubs, and bookstores, and the Museum practically next door.5. Unlike other hotels in the same price range, there are few if any tour groups. You feel you are among English people, not other tourists.6. While the single rooms are tiny, you can get very comfortable rooms for a couple or family, for not a lot more money.

    Good service and reasonable price

    from

    Being there on new year's eve 2004. Very helpful staff, always meeting my demands (changed room and avoided main street). One can get quite rooms, if one can avoid the main street (which is quite noisy at almost all times). Overall, best price/quality: if one wants more luxurious rooms (for example a 4 star hotel), one has to pay ca. 50% more, but one does not always get a 50%+ service (in my experience this has not always been the case). Recommended.

    So-so experience

    from

    We stayed at the Bonnington for 5 nights this May. For us, it was a pretty mixed bag.Good points: Very good location, with great access to the Tube and local businesses, not to mention the British Museum right across the street. Professional, helpful, and courteous lobby staff. Not so good points: Breakfast service was spotty. Rooms not cleaned as well as they could be (and my standards are not terribly high.) Climate control in the room was poor. Last but not least, we unfortunately had the Worst. Hotel Mattress. Ever. It was positively C-shaped. Despite its good points, I don't think I will be likely to stay there again.

    Very comfortable

    from

    I stayed at The Bonnington Hotel for a week in late February. I found the hotel so comfortable and homey. The food was delicious, and all the staff were just wonderful people. The location is great, so easy to get around, and an amazingly quiet neighborhood at night. I will be staying there again. D. Milan, Reno Nevada

    A good choice

    from

    The Bonnington (in Southampton Row at Great Russell Street) is my 'Good' choice for London. Smallish rooms but everything good - furnishings (though narrow beds),housekeeping, front desk, breakfast, bar. Welcoming lobby with doorman and concierge. Close to Holborn Tube Station. Steps to British Museum. Rack rates are a bit steep so watch for frequent specials and discounts.

    A well run hotel

    from

    I have stayed in many London hotels and of all of them the Bonnington is my favourite - in fact it's the one I keep going back to. It is good value for money if you need a single room at the weekend (especially if you book through Superbreak). It is a pretty big hotel and seems fairly well run. Though it is not particularly impressive - it is clean and pleasant.
