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!!

... more people shove themselves in to our carriage because who doesn't love rubbing up next to hot, sweaty, smelly strangers in an underground box with no air flow? Fast forward to Holborn station. It's so good to see Deborah (Wifey) and finally meet her 10yr old daughter, Bonnie. We go eat then overland train and bus back to theirs. I have a wee rest (no sleeping until at least 8pm, I tell myself) then we're off to Westfield for a ...
We had a sleep in until 10am and caught the tube to Harrods!! Wow it is sooo amazing! Everything was so glamorous and expensive!! We then caught up with james and Helena for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe in London! This was the original cafe and it had so much memorabilia!! So nice to ...
... clothes they don't need for the rest of their trip. So Video Girl has a very big suitcase to haul home (Don Quixote take note!).
She was looking forward to snuggling down in bed on her last night in London.
The wind was howling outside the apartment but she was warm and cosy inside ( or warm and huegli as the Danish would say, see she had listened to her guide, Jarod when she was in Copenhagen)
She finally turned in about 1am .
... between the number of people in the house - As a tenant, YOU have to pay the council tax – the ‘cheaper’ the area you live in the cheaper the council tax. We live in West Hampstead and have to pay £800 per quarter which is ridiculously expensive! - If you are signing a lease, make sure contract has a 6 month break clause, just in case you don't like the place or need to move, you ...
... is LOST in London, what if he got detained at customs?! It just so happened that while I was upstairs freaking out, Sterling had followed a girl into the apartment and was in the lobby trying to figure out what apartment number I was in (there were 60 apartments, I was in 60). Sterling had to leave the apartment so that he could contact me and then all was well, but for a while we had thought we lost our friend in London somewhere =P
We went straight ...
