... out of home very easy. To celebrate her last day we went to Earlham Street Clubhouse. This was the first place I went out to when I arrived in London. It’s like a bar that serves only cocktails and pizza, and now croughnuts! It’s a cross between a doughnut and a croissant. Lottie has been dying to try one so we did. It was doughy and oily and not for me haha. I like the traditional hot fresh cinnamon doughnuts – yum!

While Lottie headed off to ...

Seated at my desk, supplies out, the second volume of the Sforza Hours unwrapped and sitting in its viewing cradle, I looked at the little description booklet that came with each volume and got some more details. The original is on vellum (calf skin), has 125 leaves and is 13.1 x 9.3 cm (5 5/32 x 3 21/32 inches). The script is rounded gothic. I have found three scribes: the first one was really good, and the next two were either in ...

November was pretty low key, a good thing given how unprepared I was dor December. I took to the streets most weekends exploring the array of amazing markets and street art that makes East London so amazing to live in. There is always something going on and another café/restaurant/bar I see that I want to go to (once I actually earn Pounds).

I also took the chance to go and see the stage show Wicked, everyone has to see at least one in London. Given that I saw ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express London - Greenwich

    Cheap but bad location

    from

    The Holiday Inn Express at Greenwich is fairly new but is built with Canary Wharf and the Docklands in mind. Whilst the price is probably cheaper than a hotel in central London it is based in a relatively new location that has a shopping mall but not much else going for it. Be warned - It's about 15 mins walk to the nearest underground station (North Greenwich) and after that, you'll be looking at a 20-30 min underground journey to the west end. Having said that, it is built on top of a very good Chinese restaurant (The Peninsula) which gets very busy on Sundays. Parking also becomes a problem on Sundays as hordes of Chinese families drive and park in the hotel's car park.

    Good value for money

    from

    stayed here just before easter in a family room for 2 nights with 2 teenagers for a bargain60pounds a night.the breakfast buffet was good although a few things ran out and you were waiting for things to be filled up but it was very busy

    we arrived back after an exhausing days sightseeing and decided to try the chinese on the ground floor-it was packed as there had been a wedding there all day-we were all starving and thought we would have to wait for ages but the service was very quick and the food was excellent

    it was a bit of a trek to the tube but for the price it was really good value for money

    Quite good in general,but far away from all!

    from

    I stayed there with my boyfriend in March 2005 for 7 days.

    Get What You Pay For

    from

    I stayed at Express Holiday Inn Greenwich on the last nite of my London trip. It was the cheapest I found - 40 pds (about $75 USD - special online rate through Orbitz) - great deal considering the nitely rate advertised at the hotel was 100 pds!

    Family suite???? For a family of dolls perhaps!!!

    from

    My family and I chose to stay here at Easter last year and booked a family suite (their words). This would have to be the smallest room I have ever spent time in. One double bed for us and a fold out sofa for the two kids. When the sofa was out no one could even stand to make a cup of tea. There was simply no way we could return from a day out and relax, unless we hung ourselves in the closet....hang on, there was no closet just a rack. The dining room for breakfast was very large and very busy but no problem with the quality of the food on offer. Small walk to the station but several busses at the door. Only stay here if you are happy being in a shoebox!!

    Absolutely terrible experience

    from

    Terrible hotel, unhelpful staff. Very noisy overnight with nothing done about it. Breakfast ran out in the morning 30 minutes before scheduled - then spent 20 minutes arguing with the receptionist that we had paid the day before but he had no record of it, even though he was the one who took it. If you are thinking of staying in this area, you'd be better off sleeping rough than wasting £50. Terrible!!

    Nice hotel, nice price

    from

    We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Greenwich for three nights in August 2004. It's a decent hotel, well-maintained with nice views from the panoramic windows that it has on each floor. Room have modern, pastel furnishings, tea and coffee making facilities as well as a sofa - more than you can expect from a 'budget' hotel. Buffet Breakfast was fine - appropriate for a three-star hotel. Staff were not massively routined in giving directions how to get to the nearest tube. Therefore some advice for those who want to leave their car at the hotel (which doesn't cost extra!): The tube station "Greenwich North" is in the Millennium Dome, which is about a kilometre away. Because of the size of the Dome, (which you can see from the hotel), it seems closer than it actually is. A nice walk if the weather is fine. However, if it isn't, you might have to rely on one of the buses (the 188, for example), which leave from a nearby residential area (about 200 metres to walk) and which take you to the Dome. We'd book the hotel again at any time, provided that we can have it for the same price (under 40 Pound).

    Gone to the dogs!!

    from

    i stayed in may 2001, and found this hotel brilliant. I loved the views, the service and the food. It was a touch out of the way, but I found that it was great value, and a brilliant 'gem' of a hotel.

    Value for Money

    from

    A real Value for Money Hotel, Located near the Millenium Dome, its about a 25 minute tube ride to the city centre.The rooms are very clean and are a decent size. The continental breakfast included in the price is quite nice. Hotel Staff are pleasant and efficient.If you want an inexpensive, comfortable stay, with good access to central London then this hotel will meet your requirements.

    Great location and rooms

    from

    Stayed 4 May - 10 May 2003. Great location just off Gloucester Road (intersect with Cromwell Road) behind Tube station. It adjoins the sister hotel, The Millenium Baileys (you can sign for services between hotels). The Gloucester can best be described as "comtempory" while the Baileys is definately "old english traditional". The outside of the Millenium Gloucester is mid 70's ugly concrete- hotel is only 8 levels high. Entry is down a internal road (high car park costs - something like GBP30 for 24 hrs). Lobby - 2 level high is nice with use of marble and seating (it was good enough for them to film a ITV television drama while we were there) - a moderate but not too large size. A small bar is off here - best describe as "club like" with use of panelling, subdued lighting. The otherside of the lobby has the restaurant/ coffee shop down in a similar "club like" decor and looking onto the street. The hotel is part of a small conference centre and can be busy during the day with meetings etc although we didn't have a great problem with this and the hotel absorded this well. We had a "Business Club " room (although we were on holiday) Nice large room with a view onto surronding homes and other rooms (the hotel is built like the letter "H"). Good A/C but window (moderate size) does opened. Room done in blond woods (a feature wall) with a panelled tapestry behind the bed. Nice large curved desk came out from the wall infront of the window. Bathroom marble with heated towel rail (good for drying hand washed items) and a trouser press in the wardrobe with the safe. Minibar was those horrible automatic charging one that never seemed cold enough and appeared to charge if just touched (given both my and other guest experiences ever time I was down at reception they waste a lot of time on this problem) - this is easily checked as your room bill can be checked via the interactive tv. Club lounge (level 6) served continental breakfast (except weekends for a club lounge as the only refresments available during day was coffee/tea and water. Evening cocktails consisted of one free drink in the downstairs bar (and it did nothing for self esteem having to ask for it - like the 3rd degree) - this is poor and the one thing this hotel - which is mean't to be primarily a busness hotel- fell down on. No other food presentations were offered during the day in the club lounge and in some respects was a waste of time. I have read some reviews on this hotel regarding poor maitenance of decor etc - I disagree and halls, lifts etc were in good condition (yes there was some chipping etc) but no worse than any other place I've stayed in including far more expensive. Staff also could be a bit unprofessional. Overall, would I stay agrain - yes - location (South Kensington near the V&A museum) was great being on the tube direct from Heathrow (about 30 minutes) and 10 minutes from Harrods/ Harvey Nicholls. Room was in excellent condition (after all I dont sleep in the hall) and was very large for London and I got a great rate. Immediately outside was a plethora of places to eat plus a branch of Boots (the chemist) and Waitrose supermarket. In the immediate area was a Holiday Inn (x 2), Rydges hotel, a Raddison and a Carlson. A great week to start in London.
