So, I made it to England with very little to get me down. By some stroke of luck, the lines at the airport security were accomodating and I managed to snag a window seat on my plane. The down side was my flight neighbor. This little old armenian woman who seemed to be under the impression that washing her hair was just unnecessary at her age, and …
Arrive in London We left our nice quiet village in Ireland, and flew back to London. Then we took the tube to our hotel on Edgware Road. The tube station was right across the street from the Hilton Metropole - very convenient! Again, we got a great deal on the price at the Hilton Metropole via Hotwire - about $112/night. Wow - London is expensive …
London. London London London. I've been wanting to travel here ever since I was a very little girl. My dad traveled here so many times on business when I was growing up so I knew the basics: Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and telephone booths. I knew postcard London. So, as one could assume, London is pretty different than I had expected.
My parents, my sister, and I got up early for a tour. I don't really like being in a big city on a bus full of tourists, but sometimes it is the easiest way to see (I don't mean to be this redundant but...) touristy things.
First, we saw Big Ben and the Westminster Abbey and then the Household Cavalry Museum. There is something about …
Fortunately for those reading this... for those who have made it this far through my blog of a so-far typical trip to London... I have no super long summary for our third day in London. This is because we spent the day at Harrods, one of the largest department stores in the world. We ate lunch at the crepe restaurant inside which was delicious. …

It was the hottest it had been in the last 5 years during our stay in London, I will give it that, but the air conditioner in our room simply did not keep up. It was probably 80 degrees Fahrenheit in our room over the night, not the best sleeping conditions. The room was also very, very small. You actually had to lift the suitcase over the bed to get it to the suitcase stand. I also do not understand the need to pay for WiFi when staying at a Hotel with the price tag that it has. I've stayed in much better Comfort Inns with free WiFi and better amenities. I will say however that the Full English Breakfast was pretty good.

decent location, near the tubes, efficient front desk personnel, however the two rooms we were assigned to had serioius problems. the first room, on a high floor in the older tower had no shower curtain, despite calling down and reporting this before heading out for a day of touring, this was not taken care of....upon returning late in the night, we contacted the manager on duty and she "upgraded" us to another room in the executive/club level section, which was supposedly a larger, nicer, more upscale room. It was anything but, this room was absolutely horrendous, filthy carpeting, worn furniture, horrible bedding, it was positively shocking that this was considered one of their best rooms. a manager did come up and look at the room on the second day and was quite surprised how bad it was, but not surprised enough to really do anything about it.....we rescinded the offer to move yet again.....and they made no reduction in the rate....a bit surprising.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Metropole
Very nice hotel, well located but...
We just came back from a 7 days stay at this hotel, first we were given a room in the east wing, room was old, smelly and small, for the last half of the stay we were in the west wing (new one) which was totally different: it was bigger, very nice, clean and modern as so were the elevators and halls in this wing. Breakfast was very good: English breakfast buffet which included eggs, sausages, hams, cheese, pastries, etc. but watch is very expensive specially for us with american dollars so make sure your room rate includes breakfast. Hotel ambience is very nice even though is a convention /business traveler hotel, restaurant and common areas have a nice modern decor. Staff was very helpful and attentive including concierges, doorman, housekeepers. Location is very good, about 1/2 block from 2 tube (subway) stations where you have access to three lines that will take you every where in London, and walking distance (about 10 minuts walk) to some attractions as :speaker corner, Oxford shopping and Hyde Park. I recomend this hotel just make sure your room is in the "new" wing of the hotel (west wing).
We stayed at the Hilton Metropole in November and had an excellent time. The staff were responsive and professional. This hotel is very "American" the rooms were a good size and well equipped, everything was very modern. There is a resturant and bar in the hotel. The food was very good and not the typical English fare. The concigere made reservations for a tour for us and gave helpful tips on sightseeing. The tube station is minutes from the front door and cabs were available. The great thing about this hotel was that we were able to get one room for four us, which we hadn't been able to find in other similar hotels. While this hotel is oriented to the business traveler and conventions we felt comfortable and would recommend them to other tourist travellers.
Stay Worth a Return Visit
With so much bad press about British hotels, my daughter and I did a lot of research to ensure that our 8-days stay in London would be a memorable one. We opted to stay at the Hilton Metropole in late September 2003. Although about $225USD a night, we had no regrets! Our room was on the 13th floor in the West Wing. It was completely modern, immaculately clean, spacious, contemporary in its furnishing, white tiled bathrooms and a very attentive housekeeping staff, with linens changed daily -- just like being in a good American hotel! Breakfast was included in our room rate and it was worth getting up for each morning. Two tube stations are less than 3 minutes away making it easy to get to other parts of London. Planning to return next Fall.

The lobby is fab, however i couldnt help but be dissapointed when I entered my room. It was nothing like I expected, so I imediately went down to reception and upgraded it, and the one I got given was huge! It is in a good location, however it is on a very bust street. But the breakfast was by far the best thing the hotel had to offer- it has everything you could think of! I did return to the hotel 6 months later, but even though I booked the type of room which I was later given during my first stay- it was nothing like it! So I again upgraded and was given a room in a new part of the hotel and it was fab! :-)
We stayed at this hotel in Septemter 2002 for a whole week. The location is great! It is literally 1 minute walk to the Tube station.
Downtown London is very accessible. Our room was spacious and clean.
The hotel is a hugh conference center with lots of rooms. Breakfast can have long lines at times. but well worth it! You should check hilton.com for great deals. I got one with breakfast included for 100 pounds per night including tax for two people. I highly recommend this hotel for people who want luxury at a budget price.
Nice Stay but wished for a better location
We decided to book this hotel since it was the most affordable of Hiltons in the London area. We ended up with a room in the West Wing (the new wing) that was quite impressive, spacious, and comfortable. However, it's located in a bit of a commercial section of town that doesn't have many restaurants and isn't horribly close to the city center. Breakfast was quite expensive and disappointing.
Terrific Family Accomodation
Our family of six just returned from the Hilton London Metropole. We had a wonderful, large room that was able to accomodate all of us for 121 pounds per night. The English breakfast that was included with our room had something for each of our picky eaters and the children were delighted with the swimming pool. There are two tube stops nearby, one for the Circle Line and one for Bakerloo. There are also churches and a McDonald's in the area. I searched on the Internet for three weeks and could not find a better value than this hotel.
Our stay at the Hilton London Metropole in April 2002 was wonderful. The staff was amazing... they went above and beyond what they had to do to help us out whenever we needed and were always very friendly and kind. We cannot wait to go back.
Large but lovely
Location and rooms are fantastic at Metropole Hilton. You cant find a hotel in London, which give you so much for your money. Try a room on executive-floor with acess to the lounge. They serve drinks, breakfast and afternoon-tea a no charge.
