... was really cool about this was anytime the superheroes would fly you would get wind blown in your face. When there was water in the movie, you got sprayed, when the villain, Dr Doom had his claws out it would dig into the back of your chair.

In the morning, we got up earlier than we'd planned, but left at a leisurely pace. We bought a bottle of water and asked for directions to the station, getting back to Green Park for breakfast at Fortnum & Mason before 11am. For $90, ...

Today I decided to investigate a festival called Wonderground.
For those who don't know, it's a circus and cabaret festival held at Southbank.
For those who don't know where Southbank is...if you know where the London Eye is? That's Southbank.
Anyway I got there, and it was so gorgeous! The Udderbelly Comedy Fesitval is still going on (before the giant upside down purple ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grange Holborn Hotel London
What a fantastic hotel and so close to the west end. I will never stay anywhere else in London. At the weekends they do a great rate of 85.00 GBP a night B&B.
Very good London hotel
Was very happy with my stay at the Grange Holborn. Rooms are above average size for London, terrific location. Only negative is the bland breakfast.
Stayed here in the middle of March after leaving a nearby 3-star hotel that was a disappointment. Was surpised that the Holborn (a 5-star) was only a few pounds more (it has great weekend rates of about 85 GBP). Though I think it is more like a high 4-star hotel than a 5-star, it was very nice. The room was nice size, the bathroom spotless and modern, and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. I will stay here from now when in London for the weekend.
Staff are a bit iffy.
The Grange Holborn was a gorgeous hotel, very well placed for walking into the west end, etc. There was a bit of traffic noise, but nothing that would put me off staying here again. I loved the pool and the steam room/sauna. A great bonus. The staff were a bit dopey though. It would be nice in London to be served by someone who can actually speak fluently in English!
We stayed at Grange Holborn 2 nights in December 2003. The location for the tourist is great. Within walking distance to lots of attractions.
Good hotel - very expensive if you pay full rate
I stayed in this hotel for several weeks for business. It's always clean, the rooms are pleasant and fairly spacious, the staff seem friendly, and the lobby bar is quite pleasant. On the downside, it's totally anonymous and the full rates are extortionate.
Great deal at the weekend rate
I've stayed in this hotel three times now. It is a very good deal at the weekend rate (Fri, Sat, and Sun nights). The cost during the week is so much higher, and you could do much better. Good things: rooms are beautiful and spacious, good location, excellent breakfast, nice sports club downstairs. Weaknesses: clueless service (don't speak english, don't understand their jobs well), sort of noisy location (always lots of sirens - near a hospital?). I would go back if I had a room on the upper floors.
The location of the holborm was terrific- close to the tube & within walking distance of the British Museum and Theatre District.
Complaints-The spa/ workout room/ pool were not completed as the online ad for the hotel had featured. They dutifully began construction EARLY every morning!On the plus side- Rooms were very comfortable,bathrooms were superior. The food was bland and the lobby was inferior
Keep going back...
We visit London infrequently and would like to try different hotels, but we usually end up booking back at the Grange Holborn because it's reasonable (if booked through a discount agency, obviously) and the staff are always great. Also, the facilities are clean and in good condition, the breakfast is good, the gym and pool are small but perfectly fine for hotel stays.It is also really well positioned for the things we usually want to do in London, Tottenham Court Road, Covent Garden, British Museum etc. We stayed there last month and now it looks like we'll need to visit again at the end of this month, so I suspect we'll be going back again!
Grange Holborn is Great!
We stayed here three times when we were living in rural England last year, and we really loved it. It is a very new hotel, in a central location, with great access to buses and tubes, halfway between the British Museum and Covent Garden. The rooms are spotless with lovely bathrooms, the service is wonderful (they remembered us after the first visit), and they have the best pool and fitness room I've seen in London. You need them to work off the calories from the huge breakfast buffet. All at prices not much different from other places in this neighborhood where there were no amenities and Iyou have to share a bath. Check directly with the hotel for weekend specials.
