Our legs couldn't take it anymore. This week we did way more walking than any of us is use to. We didn't take the tube at any time during our visit to London. Everything was within walking distance. The times we took a taxi, the distances were short enough that we figured the 5 of us in one taxi probably ...
... Afterwards were hanging out and Kelly asked me if I wanted to take a walk around Hyde Park. So we did and I took tons of pictures once again and enjoyed the beautiful weather and good company. Afterwards we went back to the flats and just hung out and then that night we got ready to go out again to a bar that they frequently go to called O'Neills. That night we all pregamed together and were on our way out. Apparently before 11:30 there is no ...

We woke up a little hungover today after a bit of a sleep in, then chatted with Saumya for a while before she headed out to a friends house. Darren went down to grab some food from the chicken shop and I stayed home. After a bit the door buzzed, so assuming it was Darren getting back, I buzzed him in without checking... Then a couple of Jewish men came to the door. They didn't say hi or anything, only "can we come in?" which ...
... soldier, in my red coat. It is very heavy, and reminds me of when I was 5, in kindergarten, and got to wear the fireman's
coat. They do not skimp on costumes, as the fabrics are heavy and very nice. The actors must get very hot in them on stage though!
The Natural history museum, located right across from the V&A, is also really cool, with dinosaur fossils and exhibits, along with mammals. There are many other sections, but the museums are so large ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grange Fitzrovia Hotel London
very convenient location within walking distance of oxford street and west end two minutes from tube station
stayed in an exective room very large plenty of storage space
staff very friendly and helpful breakfast plentiful and well presented
didn't eat dinner in hotel as we had an early theatre performance returned from theatre via cyclist rickshaw very cheap and quite an experience
staff still helpful and friendly late at night
We booked the room through Laterooms and even though it was a bargain (£70 for a double with breakfast) i was extremely disappointed. The location was brilliant just round the corner from Tube station. The lobby and bar area seemed nice and we were very optimistic until we opened our room door. The room was smaller than my bedroom as a kid and the bed was only a three quarter! My partner went down to ask if it was a double and was met with sniggers from the staff and as they had no 'executive' rooms we just had to lump it. The room should have cost £220 full price and i would have been horrified if i'd paid that much.
I have stayed in this hotel several times as the company I work for has offices over the road.
i was excited to be staying in the grange, the room was a disapointment, bathroom needs sprucing up, all though it was clean.
We stayed at the Grange Fitzrovia in the beginning of Sept 2004 while on vacation. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and the hotel was clean and pleasant, despite being a little smokey, when we first walked in. The rooms and the beds were a little small but nice. The breakfast is mostly boring but does serve a good cup of coffee in this tea drinking country. The location was a little out of the way of most of the attractions but it is very near the Great Portland Tube Station which will get you anywhere in the city. The hotel has a bar which is reported by the staff to be the only bar open 24 hours a day in all of London. This is a nice benefit because the pubs close between 10-12 pm. There is a good pub two blocks away called the Crown and Sceptre and Pret a Manger is a good place to supplement the dismally boring breakfast about a block away. Overall we had a very pleasant stay.
There were 5 of us who stayed at the Fitrovia...5 adults!! An odd number but they accommodated us well. We had two rooms a twin and triple..the third bed was a put you up, but was adequate and mattress comfortable!! They put the two rooms next to each other which was fantastic. Rooms clean and batroom very nice.
Hotel reception staff were polite and helpful..
Buffet breakfast was nice and all round i had no complaints.
Hotel was ideally situated near West end, for shopping, eating, theatre and clubbing!!
I would definately stay there agian and have no problem recomending this hotel to anyone
I spent many hours on the internet seeking out the best deal to take my wife to London for a birthday surprise weekend, 18 - 20 June 2004, which also included a visit to see Mamma Mia and much sightseeing.
We recently stayed at this hotel while having a weekend break in London. We had a standard double roon and paid £65 per night (for the room, not per person - booked through HotelDoorman).
My sister and I truly enjoyed this hotel. As younger women, we got some surprised stares from the generally older crowd frequenting the hotel, but the staff members were extremely hospitable and helpful. Breakfast was good, the bathtub in was gigantic, and everything was in working order, making for a comfortable stay. The biggest surprise for us was to stay in the floor below reception, which was the same floor as the breakfast room, because we could hear the low rumble of what sounded like the nearby underground from time to time (the Great Portland Street station is nearby). Even so, it was an extremely quiet room! Terrific location as well, we could walk to Bloomsbury or to Baker Street with ease, as well as numerous terrific restaurants. We'd return for another stay without hesitation.
The Grange Fitzrovia Hotel is a 90 roomed hotel in traditional British style. There are a couple of king bed rooms. Our 2 twin bedded room was small but comfortable. Good restaurants close by also one in the hotel. There is an elevator and there are safes in rooms, double line telephone with voice mail, computer modem point, mini bar, trouser press, hair dryer, TV with satellite channels, and security locking. There is the a Cocktail Bar. We were in an executive room which had individually controlled air conditioning. All bathrooms are in marble and granite with power shower and bath. Our room included a full English breakfast and taxes in the price (1135 pounds for 10 nights). The Grange Fitzrovia is situated on Bolsover Street, a relatively small and wonderfully quiet street just off main shopping areas such as Regent street and Oxford street. Even better ask for a room in the back. Transport links are excellent with several nearby tube stations and bus stops. We walked easily to the soho area for plays and the british museum. I booked through hotel-assist. No problems at all.
