- Took a hop on hop off, bus tour very good worth it, very long trip on the bus. But saw a lot of the sites, bit over museums at this stage so not really keen on looking at any more of these. So a quite day.

What a day...in London though, so whatever!

Started the day by being woken up by Kaelyn for airplane breakfast...not worth it, but landed at Heathrow 40 minutes later, yay!! The passport check went smoothly and our bags were there, so it was a great start! We began our two hour wait for my mom to catch up from Lisbon, Portugal. Well, that turned into a five hour wait as she didn't make her connection and with us passing in the sky, she had no way to tell us! We were fortunate enough ...

... trip where we haven't been before, so are new and exciting! Hopefully also warmer and cheaper than London! We'd said we wouldn't do as touristy stuff in London this time around, but as it turns out, we have! How can you not! But it's also been nice discovering new areas and places we didn't explore last time like Brixton, Camden, hiring the bikes, the portrait gallery, and the East End, as well as just soaking up all that is London. Farewell for now London, I’m sure we’ll be back! ...

... as they want, and private donations and taxes should cover that cost. Most of London's major museums are run this way, making it easy for tourists like us to spend an hour or five touring exhibits without feeling guilty about spending £15 admission just to see the Rosetta Stone, for example.

Though really, £15 to see the Rosetta Stone would have been worth it.

... sprinkled over everything. Just as I was absorbing the glow of this trip, sealed by all the luscious food before me, I suddenly felt an absence. But couldn’t figure out what it was. Finally it hit me—my rain jacket (which I had never needed), fleece, and coat were all missing. After a moment of intense confusion things resolved as I visualized all three of them in the back seat of the rental car. Which, alas, was sitting in the Eldan parking ...

    Worst Hotel of the trip

    Where do I start, hotel room smallest of the trip, with the bath room so small that I couldn't turn around without opening the door. Then there was the bed, I checked in and the bed was not made, so had to make it myself and when I went to bed I found the springs from the mattress were sticking into me. At that point I had to put more padding between the mattress and me, ok the food or breakfast disappointed would be the best way to put it.

    Great Stay

    from

    We stay at the Comfort Inn in July 2004 and had a great stay. The tube was just around the corner which made it really easy to get to. Our room was small but very nice. We were able to make tea in the room and the continental breakfast was wonderful. We got a very warm welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would really recommend this hotel.

    Needs a re-vamp

    from

    Stayed here with my husband and daughter. Room was very cramped. Shower squirted water all over bathroom except where you wanted it to go. Expected double bed for myself and husband but no way was it a double.

    On the plus side the location is great and staff were good.

    Could do with a make over!

    Very good choice

    from

    I spent three night in this hotel, from 28 to 31 of may 2004 and it has been a great choice. Two minutes from the tube, a lot of pub, shops, great breakfast and the right price.

    Only one problem, no air condition in our room, but London is not so sunny!

    All the hotel staff is polite and very kind.

    Just what the doctor ordered

    from

    I`d booked the hotel before I`d read any reviews and i have to say arrived there fearing the worst. The hotel was cheap and cheerful .The rooms clean and the staff brilliant.Now dont get me wrong its not the savoy but I was taking my 3 year old son there and he discribed it as beautiful and kids dont lie.If your looking for faults you`ll find them.If your looking for value for money you can`t go wrong.

    Good stay

    from

    After reading these previous reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to stay elsewhere. Which turned out to be an error on our behalf.

    Awful, poorly decorated shabby room and mould in bathroom

    from

    The room was small and very cramped, it smelt very musty and the bathroom was awful mould and cracked tiles - would not recommend this to anyone.

    Not serious with reservations

    from

    I booked a triple room (two adults, 1 child), 3 months in advance, (on the 6th September) for 3 days starting the 5th of December. The 2nd December (3 days before my departure) I was called to tell me that there was not such a triple room. Instead I was offered a room ¡in Gatwick or Heathrow town!. When I asked for a room in central London, I was offered to choose between ¡3 separated single rooms or one double room + another separate single one!. After not accepting any of this solutions, I had to agree with a triple room in a hotel in the north (travel zone 4) quite a long journey to were I wanted to stay (Earls Court, west zone 1), adding time, money and inconvenience to our short stay. No more comments.

    Very small rooms

    from

    We stayed here in 1/01. Very small room, poorly decorated. Neighborhood was ok - spent little time in room or hotel. Felt safe on the way to the hotel at night. Breakfast was good. Had one evening meal there and it was not special.

    Disgusting

    from

    We stayed at this dump for one night in May 2002. This place was in a shady neighborhood with hoodlums roaming the streets, the carpeting was so dirty I couldn't believe my eyes, the walls had stains on it, the shower doors were falling off. The blankets and sheets had holes in them. We were there only for one night as we were passing through from Paris back to the states so we didn't bother to change hotels. And it was the most expensive hotel of our entire European trip, to boot! The only slightly positive thing was that it was so close to the underground. But it happens to be the most annoying underground station to navigate that we encountered. All in all this place was the most memorable for the most horrific reasons. I felt like Comfort Inn should have been paying US to stay there. It was awful.
