... so we just dropped our luggage and headed out again. Mum and Dad showed us where they used to live on Comeragh Rd and Turneville Rd. We walked down North End Rd towards Fulham. Mum and Dad enjoyed reminiscing and pointing out all the dodgy takeaways and little shops that haven't changed. We went out to a cafe in Fulham for lunch and it was yummy. They had the hugest cakes and meringues. After that we went to the home of Chelsea FC-Stamford Bridge! When we got there ...

quite a few people, with their children, go down to the exposed "Beach" and
play with the small amounts of sand down there.





Tomorrow we do a last trip up to Oxford Street to look

So we decide ok - we know where Waterloo Station is - its a hike but at least we know where it is. As we are walking past the man we just asked for directions - we cross the street and wait, is that, its Westminster station. DIRECTLY ...

... As soon as Alexa saw them she said these must have been designed by Christopher Wren, the man who built St Paul's Cathedral. They were a similar style. And sure enough they were. We walked to the Greenwich Markets and Antique Markets and had a stroll around. Then up to the Greenwich Park and Observatory. The observatory was high up on the hill with great views over Greenwich and ...

We returned to he main street where we went to the pound store (aka dollar store) and stocked up on food for the bus ride the following day. We went to a few thrift shops where I bought a bag for 5 pounds and KP bought scene it. The two of us walked back to the college and ate dinner and headed to bed, attempting to mentally prepare for the upcoming foreverlong bus trip. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Glendale Hyde Park Hotel London

    Oh my gosh what a dump

    from

    This hotel is the worst I have ever stayed in. I saw the hotel on the internet and the read up sounded fantastic. Well, we should have just walked out and demanded a refund.

    Maybe they changed everything now?

    from

    Going to London with my girlfriend and mother, we wanted one cheap single room and one double room. We found this hotel and I booked it. It was only on the day on arrival I found all the bad reviews while looking for the address. Scared to hell about it, I didn't say anything to mom nor to my girl, it would break them down... ;)

    They should close it down

    from

    I did not know about this website... everything that has been said in other reviews is absolutely true! It is small, the whole hotel cannot be 12 feet wide...dirty, but so dimly lit you might not see it, dated... furniture and bedding from the 60's (but not in a good way) and nothing worked. I honestly did not stay long enough to take off my shoes, because I wouldn't take off my shoes to put them on the filthy rug. I too, did not have room for my suitcase. The staff did not speak English well, although this might be a trick to keep people's money...you must pay in advance, and like the others, you will have no satisfaction in trying to get it back. I have been searching the web to find out how to report this hotel to the Englsih version of the US Better Business Bureau. I would not stay in this place if it was for free. Unless you see this place in person you cannot imagine a place like this exists. I am sorry if you are like me and finding this out after you have stayed there. If you are considering it, please find someplace else.

    Well it is a budget hotel, what do you expect?

    from

    look, it is a budget hotel, not the ritz, what do you want for 30?

    room was clean, beds were comfy, tv in room was new and phone worked ok. yeah rooms are small, but if all you need is a bed for the night, in easy distance of Hyde park, and tube, no problem at all.

    continental breakfast was served in reception, and a bit cramped, but we were going for bacon butties at cafe round corner, which was open on sunday morning at 7.00, so didnt care.

    take your choice, 30 each or 100 each, personally, i prefer to have the beer money in my pocket.

    I would like to inform the responsible party who has agreed to list the Glendale Hyde Park on your website. I recently visited England and happened to stay at this hotel. Coming from overseas, I assumed that the description of the hotel was reliable. I was mistaken! The room was totally misrepresented. I had booked a family room with two double beds, to accommodate up to four people. The room had two twin beds and the tea maker had bacteria growing in it, not to mention that there was no overhead lighting in the room. The bulb fixture was empty. I immediately went down to the concierge and demanded my money back. He stated that he had no authorization to do so. I insisted on talking to the manager, who after a rather lengthy and discourteous conversation over the phone, promised that she would return my money the next day in full. Not only did she not show up to work the next day, but the staff at the hotel claimed to know nothing about the agreement that had been made last night. The concierge that had been present when the arrangements to return the money had been made, claimed to know nothing about the incident. I was in shock and waited and waited for some resolution. Finally the concierge, who claimed to not know how to do a refund agreed to do one and only returned a portion of my money. I regret having stayed there. Not only was it a bad reflection on the English customer service, but an exercise in how to take advantage of foreigners traveling in a new land.

    It was good for the price paid

    from

    Ok so the hotel isn't the best of the best, but for one of the cheapest room rates in London, it certainly beat what I was expecting!

    A real dive!

    Terrible!

    from

    Terrible! It couldn't be worse! Me and my boy friend had a double room, and it was about the same size as the double bed. We had problems finding a suitable place for our suitcase, and that shouldn't be necessary! The bathroom was so small that when using the toilet we had to leave the door open. We changed room the next day, but it didn't become that much better, really. The bathroom had the same size, it wasn't possible to open the window and the floor was constantly wet due to leakage (?) from the radiator. However, it got even worse: at the day of departure a member of staff unlocked our door to let a new guest in, and we hadn't even checked out! He apologised, saying that he thought we had left... This hotel doesn't even deserve one yellow dot, it should have been possible to give it no yellow dots! You're warned..!

    Worst hotel ever

    from

    Never trust a guide book. Despite high marks in a popular guide, my stay in this hole was nothing pleasant. No lift, tiny very steep stairs that promise to get you neck broken. The room made a hall closet look spacious. A small single bed and press board shelf unit that was the combination closet/vanity/desk slammed into a room that could hold nothing more. The single window was blocked by the shelf unit so it couldn't be opened more than a 4 inch crack, yet it couldn't be closed either. So the room was sweltering during the day and freezing at night. The bathroom was 2 foot square shower and the toilet was in a 2 foot square space that put the wall where your knees should be and your chin in the sink. The "free internet access" was a computer on a landing of the stairs, was limited to 30 minutes, but didn't work anyway, and according to the desk clerk, wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon. The phones were restricted so you could only place calls through the hotels very expensive carrier, when the phones worked, and calling cards were rejected. All incoming calls to me were refused to be put through even though they operator confirmed that I was there. I know know I'm going to heaven, because I've been to hell.
