London Baby!

A travel blog entry by caroline_cook27


Day 1 - Got the train down from Carlisle to London Euston and got the underground to our hotel. Once checked in we went for a walk across Westminster Bridge where we saw Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. We continued on and found Westminster Abbey but couldn't go in as it was closed but got some pictures from the outside. We then went to …

London, 3 days' worth in 1!

A travel blog entry by saaimas


We headed out bright and early again... and by that I mean two hours later than we'd intended. But nonetheless, it was a bright and beautiful morning and though we had a very busy day planned, it was all quite flexible.

The morning was so cold we were all a little surprised it wasn't snowing. After a short walk, much shorter than we would …

To bed!

A travel blog entry by saaimas


We drove back to Heathrow to return the car. Luckily through all the busy London traffic, it didn't get a single scratch or even a close call. Back at the airport (we saw no more famous people), we caught the tube to our next hotel. It was another Days Inn, but in Waterloo, London!. It was difficult to manage the number of bags we had among us. …

They blinded me with science!

A travel blog entry by tmaloney


A little bit of culture, some cheesy tourism and a giant slice of science made for a good day in London. Giving breakfast a miss, Jean 2 and I walked into Westminster and onwards to Trafalgar Square, with a stop at New Zealand house for a photo op. We arrived at Trafalgar Square for a visit to the National Portrait Gallery just as it opened. We …

A Private Walking Tour

A travel blog entry by julians26

We set an alarm to get up in time to join an advertised walking tower around central London (the City). However, we waited around at the appointed spot (the sundial at Tower Hill station) and no-one turned up. Perhaps it was too hot for the walking tour - it was forecast to be 30 degrees and humid. We decided we might as well do our own tour of the …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn London Waterloo

    Boring neighborhood


    The hotel itself was nice enough but there was not much to do in the surrounding area. We stayed here due to the close proximity to the Waterloo train station. The room we had was clean, small, and modern. The double is just enough for two adults and 2 medium suitcases. The shower was small and comparable to a cruise ship's shower. I would stay in a different area next time we are in London and if we have to go to Waterloo station, we will just hire a taxi!

    Not very good


    Unsmiling 'welcome', door key failed when first used, room cold, shower presure poor, much exterior traffic noise (sirens etc), in a shabby neighbourhood with few amenities - it's main plus points are price, proximity to the Imperial War Museum and a good pub (The Three Stags) across the road. Not very good as business hotel: and certainly not one that I would recommend for a vacation, unless price is your only consideration.

    Not bad price, Not great service


    The room was clean, but quite small compared to some of the other days inn's i have stayed in. We had 1 room with a double bed. The price was great though. The location was great becuase it was only a short 10 walk to get to the waterfront area. About 20 min walk to the London Eye. My only complaint was with the staff there. There were not friendly at all and did not offer to help me with my bags (I had 4 suitcases). When I asked them for directions they were not very polite. But if you are just looking for a place to sleep at a low price, then this will probably do.

    Excellent deal!


    Excellent deal! A London hotel which is, at the same time, inexpensive, comfortable and very well located: what a surprise! :-)

    I stayed there with my granny in August 2004 for a few nights.

    What we found:

    - a clean and modern bedroom: no air conditioning, though; just a big fan (but I think other rooms had air conditioning);

    - *huge* bathroom (at least in my room), compared to London standards;

    - just a 5 minute walk (or even less) to the nearest Tube station (Lambeth North); but the Westminster Bridge, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, etc. are an easy reach even on foot;

    - nice lobby, friendly staff.

    I reckon it would be difficult to find a better deal!

    Basic basic basic!!!


    My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in Dec/Jan.

    Great buy


    Definitely stay here if you're in London. There's the Lambeth North tube stop right down the way... I got a good deal by booking early, it was 63 pounds per night for nine nights. Rooms weren't small, but they were clean and modern :)

    Great value


    We stayed here for three nights in October 2004 and found the price right for the size of the room, considering this is London. The room was a fair size, but the shower was VERY small, but lots of counter space in the bathroom. The location of this hotel is okay if you want to spend a lot of time in central London, but it's close to a tube station so buying a day pass was a must for us. We went from here to Paris on the Chunnel so it was handy being so close to the Waterloo station. The breakfast here is a total rip-off. The hotel is not set up adequately to feed many people at once, and supplies get short quickly, including such basics as cutlery. We only ate here the second time because it was Sunday and none of the nearby restaurants were open, and there aren't many close anyways. However, the room was always clean and quiet and it's a good deal for Londn.

    Great Hotel


    I returned from Wales a day early and decided to book here for a night before going on to Paris because I was taking the Eurostar from Waterloo Station. This is a great hotel location if you plan on taking the train to Paris. I had already booked for my last day here because of the proximity to Waterloo Station but couldn't get the low rates last minute - but that was okay. The staff are fantastic, and they kept excess luggage for me for a week while I went on to Paris. Upon returning from Paris, I came back to this hotel for my last night in London. Upon check in, a staff person asked me if I knew about the Mayors Thames Festival a few blocks away. I hadn't. I rested a bit and walked to South Bank, and there was the greatest festival along the river banks! Live music, great food, a parade, fireworks - a wonderful time. I would have missed it altogether if it weren't for the staff here. The staff, the location, and neighborhood makes this a great hotel.



    This is the best hotel in London without fail. Rooms are very large especaly for the UK, great location in an excellent area. So close to tube station if you need to us it. Walking distance to Londons major attractions. Rooms were very clean and cleaned every day. We stayed here 6 nights and found it just brilliant. couldn't find one thing wrong with this hotel apart from when I went to book another couple of nights cause we liked it so much, couldn't get the cheap rates. I would advise anyone to stay at ths first rate hotel. I looked at so many hotels in Lodon, all with bad write ups. I went for this one due to a write up I'd read on tripadvisor. And I wasn't dissapoited. Days Inn all the way. A great place to stay.



    Perfect Location Room Staff PerfectThe Days Hotel Waterloo, is one of the finest budget hotels in London. Located DIRECTLY across from the Imperial War Museum the Days Hotel is easy to find from the Lambeth North Underground station and Elephant and Castle. While the Lambeth Area isn t the most exciting, it is generally safe and easy to reach with the hustle of Piccadilly and Leicester Square easily accessible from the underground. The hotel is fantastic with nice CLEAN rooms and linens and en suite facilities. The staff is very helpful with tourist info and baggage lockups after checkout should you need to leave your bags for a day out. There is a restaurant in the lobby serving dinner and breakfast for an above average price, however there are lots of pubs and restaurants in the area and a lovely bakery just around the corner on your way to the Lambeth North underground.Best to make reservations using or or expedia or if you are travling with kids call the booking sight to arrange the pull out sofa bed
