      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel The Caesar London

      Hip, chic, clean and affordable

      from

      Recently stayed at this chic designer hotel.Not a traditional and typical London hotel which is a breath of fresh air.Friendly staff, very clean, new, and well designed.Loved the decor and the attention to detail. even the groovey music played in the bar.Above all else it was value for money!!!Hey thats important to us all.

      Dreadful!

      from

      Booked this hotel on the net, lots of shiny pics on their site. Arrived to be greeted by very offhand staff who made you feel that you were imposing on their free time by asking to check in. Also the windows in the room didn't open, it was hot, and reception haughtily informed us they didn't give out fans. Also they told us the windows weren't able to be opened due to planning restrictions in the city of London. Please!! The room smelt of cigarette smoke as the room obviously could not be aired. What is worse is this hotel has given itself a 4 star rating!! Having stayed at hotels the world over, this is definately not warranted. No wonder they are always advertising on last minute sites, nobody that has stayed there would want to come back!!

      Great position, quaint building, but...

      from

      Stayed at the new Caesar Hotel, in Hyde Park London for two nights in June, 2003. Very appealing and modern entry and reception. Room was so tiny, we could barely fit our luggage in. Main complaint though was the fact there was NO air conditioning, and you could NOT open the window. We asked about the lack of ventilation, and they said they just didn't have it. It was stifling!!!! If you cannot open a window, then you NEED air conditioning!!!!! Also they saw us stuggling to get out luggage out the door and into taxi, and they didn't even bother to help!! Just carried on chatting amongst themselves. Hotel has got potential, but for the price, you can get a better deal.

      Clean, small, hot

      from

      This would probably be a perfectly cosy place to stay in the winter, when it is cold.

      The receptionists we unfailingly friendly, the room was very clean and provided everything we needed, the breakfast was also good.

      The only negetive thing was that you cannot open your window in your room. The weekend that we went was very warm (abnormal for London I know) but this made it very unpleasant to try to sleep in our hot, humid, and stagnant room.

      Airless

      from

      We had booked this hotel for one night prior to a trip to Germany, then again for a 5 night stay when friends were arriving in London. Fortunately we stayed the one night and were able to cancel our booking for the 5 nights. The windows in our room were painted shut, and there were some holes punched in the woodwork at the bottom of the windows. The room smelt of stale cigarette smoke, probably because no air could get in! Upon ringing reception we were told that the windows were permanently shut due to building regulations! We have stayed in many London hotels, some rooms on the 15th floor, and the windows open at least partially! Either that or there is air conditioning. It was a hot night, and it became very claustrophobic with no air in the room. I now know how a bug feels when trapped in a glass bottle with a few holes punched in the lid! With many hotels on offer in London, this hotel has to be kidding if they think they will be getting repeat business.

      Needs some improvement

      from

      We were excited abour staying at the Caesar on our first trip to London because in the pictures on the Internet it looked like a chic contemporary boutique hotel. Visually it was pleasing, but we would never stay at the Caesar--or recommend it--until improvements in amenities and service are made. For instance, our room was never ready when promised. In addition, the rooms did not have air conditioning or even windows that adequately opened to let in some air. Therefore, on humid or warm days our room turned into an oven. This hotel also advertised having a concierge. However, the staff was could not even tell us the location of the nearest post office (one block down the street) or laudromat. At first we thought that we might be being a bit picky, but as our stay progressed, we heard similar comments from other guests. Particularly in the very small lift which had halogen lights and low ceilings which made riding in it with 3 or more people very hot. You could also never predict which floor it would stop on even after pressing the number for your floor. It will be a shame if the owners don't correct these problems, because the Caesar is in a nice location close to Hyde Park and a couple of great tube stops.

      Had an extended stay

      from

      Stayed a total of three weeks. Best thing about it is the convenience to Queensway (Europa, Boots, Marks & Spencer etc). See other reviews. I thought it to be generally clean, well kept up. The recent renovation does make a difference for the better. Continental buffet is okay.Left luggage area - a small closet, litter on floor, unsupervised but under lock and key. Common to have your things moved around by others.Room 506 ("Single" but comes with a small double bed) - internal room on ground floor, no windows, opaque skylight with no mechanism that one can operate alone to keep light out in early mornings. Mechanical humming very apparent. Claustrophobic.Room 520 (Single and comes with a bed about 30 inches wide) - internal room on ground floor, with a window on the internal light shaft. Unpleasant smells one morning.Room 521 (double and comes with a double bed) - external room faces the garden square. Window opens. Room is L shaped but works. No air con, so in the summer you will want to open the window. Will hear street noise and catch whiff of the staff smoking in the stairwell under the window. I liked the room and would try to get the same. Spacious by comparison to others.Spoke with one of the daytime managers, he says best rooms are the ones that face the garden square. Stayed in one on the first floor (second floor for Americans) - quite pleasant but the windows were painted shut which made it almost suffocating. Not sure if this is the situation with other upper story rooms or just this one. Must ask for room with windows that open and shut.For some reason they do not provide wash cloths or face towels.Rack rates are completely out of line. Must book through discount brokers on the internet.

      Nice but small

      from

      Stayed recently at the newly revamped Julius Caesar Hotel. The hotel is smat, clean and efficient. The location is fine and very quiet.The rooms were tiny - the twin room I had was definitely only suitable for two people who were prepared to be good friends. Very nicely decorated though. Missed little things like waste paper basket and soaps and things in bathroom!

      On my last day, I was super excited to take a full tour of the Tower of London! After a quick stop to buy my badger tickets (Shoutout to Jasmine Holland for helping me!) I was in. The Tower of London is basically an old fort (built almost 1000 years ago) that was actually where the Kings and Queens lived until the mid 1800's (good ol' Queen …

      After an awesome first day, I was up early for a hop on, hop off bus tour of literally everything in the city! The tour started downtown, so I took the subway * (The Tube) for the first time that morning. By the end of the day I felt like I mastered it, even helping a few people find their way!

      I took the Original London Bus Tour, which …

      Cobbled type walkways
      With people were filled

      Everywhere, anywhere
      Red telephone booths,
      Red double deckers

      Pubs on each corner
      With good honest grub
      The heart of all Londoners
      The right social hub

      So as much as I tried to believe this day would never come, it finally arrived. Carmie's last day at work... oh I cried inside but at the same time I was very happy for her as she was escaping the crazies that work at that office.

      Anyway, the four of us worker ants went out to a team lunch at Oki and had bibimbap (can't spell it) and it was delicious... we then had some tipsy cake that Carmie had made which ...

I had already sused this out yesterday, now I had to find the best way to get there with my heavy bags. A man helped carry them down at chalkwell station :). Then I got off at barking and changed lines to hammer smith and city. This was a handicap station, so could easily change ...
