The Hideous Gresham Hotel 116 Sussex Gardens , London
I had the unfortunate experienc of staying at hotel for week during Thanksgiving in Novenber 03. The Gresham Hotel was terrible and the staff were rude and inconsiderate and most did not speak english. The bathroom was so small you could bareley move around. There was no closet space the satellite TV is a joke it had 3 channels and two of those were the same with lousy reception. We frequently had to ask for clean towels. The cleaning staff would turn the heat off in the room after they were done cleaning and when we would come back to the room it would be freezing and it would take a long time for the room to warm up again. The room size was tiny. Supposedly the rooms were recently remodeled. Whoever it was, should be shot. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was drafty. The hairdryer was in a desk drawer, from which it could not be moved and used in a convenient place like the bathroom.
The rug in the room was filthy. The coffe and tea service consisted of some no name tea bags and a plastic cup and a tiny spoon and plastic pot with a rusted heating element that appears they salvaged from the trash. The furniture was broken. The hotel was advertised as a superior tourist class hotel. The brochures for this hotel are deceptive. This hotel in reality is a no class budget hotel. I for one will never stay it this dump again and hope nobody else has the unfortunate experience of staying in this dump.
It was a terrible experienceand I will certainly avoid this hotel. It is rated 3 to 4 stars and should have been no more than 2 stars. The hotel is well located but quite dirty. Bathroom is like a box in which you can hardly move. Do not take much luggage: you can not hang your clothes!! Cleaning staff inadequate - we stayed there in December and found a newspaper dd October 16 under the bed!! - and most staff does not speak english. Drinks at the bar are out-of-proportion expensive.
Publicity pictures are impressive but REALITY IS NOT!!

... Amalfi, run by Italians. Mouth-watering paella at Jamon Jamon, run by Spaniards. Having heard about the typical heavy English food, I've been surprised to see so many inexpensive, healthful options - Pret a Manger, and Eat, for example, with fresh and organic sandwiches, salads and baked goods, are everywhere. Yet I don't feel like I've gotten to know the British people. There will be time for ...
Today was the day where we got public transportation down right...and we did it!!! We started out with a plan for breakfast at this cute open patio restaurant around the corner. Well, we've become accustomed to plans not working perfectly, so when we couldn't hear each other due to the public street workers jack hammering the street right in front of us... we just got up and left. We headed towards the train station and hoped to find something ...
... with plenty of time) James and Helen were really timed pressed for Paris, so after we had a bite to eat, they headed towards Musee Louvre, and we headed for a double decker sight seeing bus, I always envisioned myself on one of these buses, but I didn't really enjoy it :(. It was soooo slow going around in the heavy traffic, and the fumes were very thick, we jumped off and got the metro home! But we did see one sight we hadn't previously, "Arc de Triomphe", Marcus was ...
... my left eye otherwise I can't read. Thinking about getting an eye patch but thought that would just be too pathetic. The other eye drop has to be put in every two hours. Which is ridiculous. Every time, i dealt with any of the doctors afterwards I would ask them what do I need to do know, who should I pay? They would just laugh at me and tell me tha I didn't need to do anything and i was done. Here's to having a huge portion of my salary taxed for this ...
Yesterday, after a quiet morning, Teddy and I decided to go to the mega mall. Westfield is the largest mall in Europe. I'm not much of a mall shopper, but Teddy said it was huge in comparison to any that she had visited. Westfield is just on the other side of the Stratford tube/rail station, so we walked our usual route up West Ham Lane (a big road for a lane) past two barbers with one shop between them, the newsagents, a bakery, two pubs and ...
