London day 1 What a night. Tiny bedroom and what is it about all these heavy comforters? Hot, hot, hot. But I did sleep. Breakfast in a tiny basement room with cereal, boiled eggs, toast and cheese, juice and coffee. The small room was full and manoeuvring through the crowded tables was a challenge. There was a near by tube station, and after …

Just when we thought we had escaped the morning prayers in Dubai waking us up at 5am, thinking we could sleep in, we heard the bells chiming from St Paul's cathedral. They chimed every half an hour, lol. We set the alarm for 8am to wake us up. The alarm went ...

We had dinner in a pub called the Anchor, which is another one of those "oldest pubs in London" places, although this one happens to actually be one of the oldest, as a pub by that name has stood on the site since the 1500s (Shakespeare would almost certainly have known the place, since it stands a very short distance from the Globe.) From there, we hurried back through the darkened alleyways to London Bridge Tube ...
We arrived back in London about 2pm. I cannot believe that our first 12 days are over. We were very lucky to be with a great group of people. The trip was amazing. You cannot really comprehend the history until you visit these historic places. Today we visited Winston Churchills ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holland Court Hotel London
Great homely hotel
I stayed here for a few days in May 2005. I found the hotel to be cosy , nicely decorated and very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. I needed to get a taxi to a conference and there were probelms with the tube and they immediately arranged for one to come and pick me up. As regards the charge for breakfast, I wasn't charged any additional amount when I had the English breakfast. Overall my stay at the HCH was was as expected and I think I am most likely to stay here again.
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights over New Years (04/05). It got so bad at one point that we went to an internet cafe to review our cancellation policy and search for a different hotel. Unfortunately, we were locked in and were not prepared to lose the £120 for the two remaining nights.
I didn't find anything about the hotel all that special. What it does offer is clean, quiet accomodation that is very close to transportation, at a very reasonably (for London anyway) price. Room are on the small side, but unless you want to part iwth a lot more £'s, that is a fact of life in London.
We stayed 5 nights in dec 2004 at a very reasonable price (ensuite double L49pn for London...). Room was actually very small and had some minor defects (eg some noises from heating system and floor and clean-but-raunchy linen) but overall it was clean and provided all we needed for feeling good. At the reception and even cleaning personnel was cordial and helpful, though there are not many services or facilities. They have a very intimate lounge/breakfast conservatory. If you dont expect particular facilities, it's a good value for money, cosy, calm and well located place to stay a couple of nights.
Stayed in the Holland Court Hotel for one night on friday 17th September. We had a good deal to stay there for £45 with ratestogo. However, the cheap rate must have meant a cheap room. It was quite small and there was a cracked window and the sink in the bathroom (also small) was hanging off the wall. This meant the water didn't drain very well. Still, minor problems so we didn't complain. Breakfast was good overlooking the garden. However, we were asked if we wanted an english breakfast which we naively agreed to. It wasn't until check uot that we discovered that we had to pay an extra £5 each for the privelage. Not much I know, but it would have been nice to have been told that we would have to pay extra.
Fine hotel, staff, room and breakfast were about average, but considering the price of the winter special not bad value at all. Major difficulty here however is parking, there isn't any, all local streets are limited to 4 hour parking. The only alternative suggested by the hotel is the car park down the road costing £28 / 24 hrs or £21 / 12 hours. If you are driving find a better deal with parking.
Had a good time in Londen and this hotel. Rooms are clean en nice, althoug a bit small. Bathroom was above average. Minibar to keep drinks cold was handy and the breakfast was good. In general friendly staf.
We enjoyed our stay and will visit again.
We were surprised to see some of the comments made about the hotel.
We think that the problem around the credit card use is likley to come from someone who decided that they did not want to pay for their accommodation.
Next time they should stay at home if they cann't afford to stay in a hotel or find some mugs who will put them up for free.
Holland Court Hotel Fraud
Fraud everywhere from charging my credit card for 5 days when I only stayed one, to completely misrepresenting the accomodations. The rooms were like prison cells, there was no hot water. There was no ventilation (one window that would not stay open and closed like a guillotine without notice. Room had no room to walk around bed. Management didn't give a crap - they know they are ripping you off. Have been fighiting the fraudulent credit card charge for 5 months. Stay away from this place!
Holland court hotel from hell
Holland court hotel from hell!
Completely fraudulent use of credit card!! Using the credit card to take payment for entire duration of stay when the guests stayed a matter of hours without the permission nor signature of the cardholder.
This hotel claims to have three stars however, it shouldn“t even have a rating of any sort as it is well overdue for an inspection, which I have no doubt in my mind it would fail!
Dirty!!! Disgusting bedrooms, rude staff!!
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, I would however, warn people against using the hotel in future!!
This establishment which claims to be a welcoming hotel needs to be completely fumegated because in its current state it should be condemned
