Kerstvakantie, even er tussenuit, dan is Londen met ook de mogelijkheid om een leuke musical te zien natuurlijk ideaal. Op donderdagavond besloten en een ticket voor de boot en een hotel in Londen geboekt. Vrijdag varen we en met de boot van Calais naar Dover.
De auto geparkeerd in Wimbledon en dan met de metro verder. Twee nachtjes in …
... It is 4 stories on M&M stuff! Not just chocolate but everything you could think of. Thanks Russ Wood for suggesting it :-) So another good day over here in London. Our prayers are with all those down at Totara Springs who are involved in Kids Camp this week. We do trust that you all have an awesome week and lives are challenged and changed. Work together in absolute unity and I know that God will bless. Love you ...
... They are called “Boris Bikes” by most people because they were
introduced by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson in 2010. Barclays Bank are the
sponsors of the scheme until 2015, when a new sponsor’s name will be used. But
the locals will always call them Boris Bikes. You simply take a bike, pay your
money and ride it anywhere in the city and drop it off at another Boris Bike
... hall, which had lots of scrumptious goodies, but we resisted! We then walked a mile to get to the tube station we needed to take us to South bank where we were meeting my friend Emma from uni for dinner. It didn’t look that far, but in the rain and with a couple of wrong turns, we seemed to walk for an age. Today we seemed to have found a much better groove balancing the bus, tube and walking (we may as well take advantage of our oyster card!) so as not to wear ourselves out ...
... eat much lamb).I had a yarn with him while Terry found a bigot to talk to about the Indians moving into the area, and because they don't drink, all the old pubs have shut. The butcher told me lots of artists and young people were moving in and gentrifying the area by buying up the property at huge prices. So, two different views about Shoreditch.
We celebrated being in England with rhubarb pie and custard after the lamb chops for dinner.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Euston
I stayed here last year with 2 friends. When we checked in they accommodated us in a non smoking room. When we asked for a smoking room, they just brought up an astray and told us that we did not have to move to another room because the new had to pack our bags again. the staff was very friendly and helpfull. We had dinner in their restaurant which was perfect! The only thing which we found not as perfect as the rest was the breakfast.
I'm very glad I was paying a discounted rate of 99 pounds a night, and not the posted rack rate of 179 pounds.
My best London hotel experience
My colleague recommended me to try this hotel. I travel regularly and to London at least once every two month. I can only say that I enjoyed the 4 nights I stayed there, very polid staff, great gym and facilities, nice fresh and colourfull rooms. Thats were I will stay in future!
I was very pleased that I had a special Internet rate at this hotel - I can't believe it has 4 stars! I had asked for a quiet room but on checking in, found out that this would be impossible because of my impossible request - a double room. The noise was incredible - we couldn't hear the television over the traffic noise - just next to a major crossroads, Euston Train Station, and two bus stops. We had the Continental Breakfast - only one day as our first day the orange juice was old and watered down - not to mention a funny color. The room, being in a London hotel, was of course impossibly small - climbing-over-the-bed-to-get-to- the-chair small. The chain for the bathtub plug was wrapped around the faucet and impossible to get out, the water pressure was so low as to be almost inexistant. The location was good - 3 minutes from Euston. If I had paid the full price I would have been furious. As it is, I found a bargain but probably won't go back - for me, a hotel is basically to sleep in and if it's too noisy to sleep, there's no reason to go there.
I stayed at the Euston Plaza Hotel in April 2002 for a week. I booked the hotel through Orbitz and got a fantastic rate for a 4* (or so I thought)... but, you get what you pay for, i suppose. Overall, I was disappointed with the hotel. I had notified the hotel that I would be arriving early on my check-in date (9am), and they said they would have my room ready. Unfortunately, upon arrival, they were totally confused and had no room ready (despite admitting that they had noted my early arrival in their computer). After waiting for 30 mins while my room was cleaned, I was taken upstairs to a a very TINY "executive suite" -- even by London standards, this room was miniscule... and, as an executive who stays in suites often, I can tell you that this was certainly NOT an acceptable title for the room. There was barely enough space for more than the full-size bed (which was actually comprised of two beds pushed together with an uncomfortable gap in between) and a small desk. The bathroom was adequate and clean, but nothing luxurious. The room faced the street and got plenty of light (huge windows) but also plenty of street noise.The hotel staff was unhelpful and seemed upset when I asked for a room change/upgrade. Begrudgingly, the manager (after 30 minutes of waiting) showed me an upgraded suite, which was much nicer but also 5 times the price of my "executive suite". I ended up accepting the original closet-room that I was originally assigned to.I did not eat or drink at the hotel. The restaurant and bar both seemed depressing. The upside is that there is a credit-card based internet terminal in the lobby (yippee!).I would give this hotel 2 stars, at best... Trust me, spend a bit extra and stay somewhere decent.
I stay at this hotel now every single time I am in London. The staff there at the hotel and also at the fitness centre attached are some of the most fantastic left in this industry. They go above and beyond to take care of their customers. I was very ill one time at the hotel and the staff went out of their way to supply with me with Hot Tea and other things in my room without me asking. The staff at the reception desk are very caring and considerate. This hotel is kept extremely clean and the renovation has made the rooms excellent. I have now stayed at this hotel over 3 times in 2003 not one single time did they fail to provide a wonderful atmosphere and a wonderful room. I would recommend this hotel to all Business people for their care their facilities and their professionalism. This is not the ordinary run of the mill hotel. Great hotel for good value! Soren
I stayed here a few years ago and thought it was fantastic. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, the room large and comfortable and the food was excellent.
Super value - great hotel
Thank you Euston Plaza. we had a great trip to London and enjoyed the hotel and all the fitness facilities. We will return to your hotel next time we are in London
Went down to London for a weekend break. staff were rude from the offset. had to change rooms which later discovered were not meant to be hired out anyway because they were in such a state. no apologies. room service answered phone by saying "what" and promptly hanging up at end. overcharged for room. called us an unlicenced taxi who bartered for his fair. hotel saw no problem with using these people? very noisy outdated run down establishment. 4 star? yeah right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! more like 2 star.
Noisiest Hotel in London? They don't care!
I thought this hotel would be value for money when they offered me a quiet room in the centre of Bloomsbury in January 2002. I was wrong.
They switched my booking and gave me a room on the front at the junction of two busy roads. there is no double glazing and the traffic noise all night was horrendous.
Don't bother to complain. I filled in their customer service form and wrote to the manager twice after my visit. It si march and I am still waiating for any reply.
Don't stay. They don't care.
