Travel Blogs from London
Today was a relax morning as I tried to catch up on the past entries for the blog, convert some of the many photos and wait for delivery of Rebecca's bags. Well, the first items were done, but no bags as of noon so we headed out for some additional shopping. On the way, we purchased our train tickets for tomorrow down to Dover to avoid the stress …
After a long day of traveling, I arrive safe and sound in London, cleared immigration in no time at all - I was the first of the "foreigners" in line, got my bags quickly and was in the Terminal 4 minutes after our scheduled arrival! A good recovery from Kenya Airways!!
I hoped on the free transfer train from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 and …
Its Thursday, that only means one thing! I'm going to the Zoo, seeing my uncle, aunty and little cousin and seeing Westlife all in 1 day with one of my closest friends. What more could I want?
I'm late, never used to be, seems to have come a bit more regular recently! Its absolutely chucking it down outside and the rents have just told me …
... for your new space - cheer up and smile." No sooner have i completed the purchase as the curtain is up. "Cool!" "Go!" "Crazy!" From my seat three rows from the stage, i am suprised to find myself profoundly affected by the production. I've seen the movie several times, but i never connected with it on an emotional level like now. Maybe it is the proximity of the performers, the infectious energy of their song and dance, the flurry of bright colors coming from the ...
... trip to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand & Hong Kong, mostly due to the lack of wealth in many of the countries we visited. It has been humbling to see how hard people work to live and how possessions don't really matter.......They seem happy with their lot and clearly family and friends and community are a huge part of this happiness. Don't suddenly think I'm up for having a huge change to my life ....... There's still plenty of room in my wardrobe for my Jimmy Choo's but I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Docklands
Excellent Hotel and Budget friendly! Breakfast too good ! The rooms are nice.
I have stayed here 3 times now (2 adults & 2 children) We have stayed in a family riverview room each time which i have requested on the online booking details. Each time i have rung the hotel before arrival to check i have been allocated the room i want and each time,although they have allocated me a different room, when i point out my booking request made online they always accomodate me in the room i want. (Just a point to beware of if you want a particular room/view check with the hotel before arrival to avoid disappointment. The staff are very helpful)
Not in the Docklands & not really up to Hilton Standards
Stayed for one night in early March 04. Despite it's name it is not situated in the Docklands but on the other side of the river Thames in the "middle of nowhere". Cost 2 GBP to get across via a "water taxi". In the evening, it took half an hour by taxi to get from Docklands to the hotel (no water taxi, tunnels closed). Rooms are cheaply furnished - more like a 2-star Ibis than a Hilton. Outdated phones, so no modem access from hotel rooms. After 11 p.m. it took ages before somebody picked up the phone at reception. Average breakfast buffet. However, the restaurant was not clean with leftovers lying under the table. There are dozens of hotels in London that offer more for much less.
We booked the winter special for two nights(total GBP 140). The first room they gave us was located in the side building on the 6th floor with an excellent view. But it smelled like a Cuban tobacco factory and the carpet was quite dirty. As a HH Gold member I expected at least to get the non smoking room I booked. The friendly person at the front desk switched us to a new room in the main building which was modern, nice, clean and gave us lots of space. The winter offer we book had breakfast and one dinner included. The breakfast was outstanding, really a 5 star choice. The dinner buffet also offered a wide selection of food, but the serving temperature of the food was to low. The shuttle bus needs only 5 minutes to/from the tube station (if you can get a seat..). A 4star hotel (no mini bar) with very friendly staff which is still close enough to the major attractions of London to choose it as a home base for a trip. A Pub is across the street.
Stayed here for one night in February 2004. Room was clean and spacious and our standard double room even included a small view of the Thames.
Stayed here for six nights in February 2004. Room was fine (very clean and reasonably spacious), room service is 24 hours, the Terrace Restaurant is fine (the Traders Bistro was closed for renovations while we were there), the staff was very helpful, and the shuttle to the nearby Underground station (runs every 15 minutes) was very useful.
Only minor quibble is that they kept getting the bill wrong--putting charges on there that were incorrect (and which they quickly removed once I pointed them out). Beware: in-room phone charges are outrageous.
We booked a 2 day break in a de-luxe river view room. Cost on the net was £105 GBP per night including breakfast both days and evening meal on the first night.
Good hotel, but fantastic breakfast. Sure its not cheap but the range and quality of food on offer is amazing. Name any breakfast product from the British Isles and its on offer here. Haggis, Kippers, Porriage, Welsh sausages, potato cakes, white pudding, black pudding, plus all the usual cooked breakfast fare. The best start to a days sightseeing in London!
Very friendly and quiet hotel
Been visiting this hotel for 3 years - every week. Great views of Canary Wharf and nice and quiet. Not much good for 'London nightlife' though unless you want to travel quite a bit!
