London has been exciting, fun and cold! We spent our first day walking around having a look, spent our first pounds on a beer and pie! We stopped at another pub and were feeling very tired from our flight still so we went back to hotel for a nap and then 5 hours later we woke up and it was 7pm so decided to go back to sleep. The next day we started …
Location = City of Westminister, London, England.
Built (Westminister Palace) = 1840
Consists of = Westminster Palace, Westminster Abbey, and St Margaret’s Church
Part of 3-5 hours London Walking Tour. Great day but the short but frequent rain was a little annoying. As it was winter, the walk was a great way to keep warm see various aspect of the city (Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Downin Street, etc).
... to Southbank and past the London Eye where we had lunch at Wagamama's. There were amazing Christmas markets on the Southbank and we have never seen so many people! It was an incredible atmosphere, and we held on tight to the kids as we walked through as we never would have found them if we lost one of them!
We then caught bus again and went over the Waterloo Bridge to Saint Paul's Cathedral, which was stunning. We made our way to the ...
... to do random spot checks on vehicles on the road, and hand out fines where they see fit. This was my first encounter - after about twenty minutes of the police questioning our driver and inspecting the van, it was clear there was nothing or of kilter on the vehicle. This apparently wasn't good enough for the police who issued a fine because 'the painting was not pretty enough' on the van's trailer. ...
- Register for a doctor (you have to register for a doctor in the post code that you live in and even then they try and tell you to go elsewhere because there is somewhere closer to your house, then it takes a month to get an appointment!)
Luckily a couple of major things were already done thanks to our awesome flatmates Brad and Sam (ie we had a flat we could move into after 5 days of being in London). So we just had to find places ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bloomsbury Hotel London
We got this hotel at a pretty good rate on the internet (£99 per room per night - weekend rate). The Lutyens building is beautiful and the lobby gave a good first impression. The twin room was a decent size (for London) with quite a generous bathroom (with bath). Good facilities included hairdryer, iron + ironing board, safe and a TV with a good selection of channels, including Sky Movies Premier (which surprised me).
I am often in London on both business (paid for) and on pleasure (I pay) and have stayed in probaly 10 to 15 hotels, generally 4 and 5 star, but rarely if ever paying full rack rates (i.e £300+)
Solid 4 star hotel in good location
Close to Tottenham Court tube stop and walking distance to a lot of night life, the location was very good. And for the price we paid, we found the room to be a solid 4-star selection, and a great deal for London. Clean, decent service, adequate in terms of quiet and size. Shop around though, because we saw prices for this hotel vary greatly on the major travel sites (Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com)... we ended up booking on www.london-discount-hotel.com as a featured special and got a really outstanding rate.
I stayed here from 31 Aug - 5 Sep. The location is close to both Oxford Street shopping and Tottenham Court Road Tube station, which are both about a 3 minute walk from the hotel. The Old Dominion theatre is a 2 minute walk, as are a few restaurants, such as Subway and Garfunkels.
Great London Gem!
My husband and I stayed at the Jurys Great Russell Street during our honeymoon. I knew hotel rooms in London were small, but our room was delightful larger than expected. Certainly not large in comparison to American hotel rooms but large by London standards.
The location is wonderful! Around the corner from the tube, two blocks from the British Museum.
It was clean, bright and quiet. The staff was most helpful from the doormen to the conciege.
We would certainly stay there again!
For a quiet night's sleep, try Jurys Gt Russell Street
Here's why I liked staying here and would go back:
Convenient location. Quiet!!! Large bright tile bathroom and lots of hot water. Clean and very safe. I had a real small room, but I was by myself and paying only for a single, and I expected a small room, so that wasn't a problem. On my previous stay the street noise, even five floors up was bad - Jury's was quiet.
Decent but uninspiring
Good location, near to Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road. This is a pleasant hotel - a relatively new conversion in an impressive building.
They'd made a mistake with my reservation, so sorted it by upgrading me to an Executive Room; to be honest, if that's an Executive upgrade, I was glad not to be in a standard room. It was pleasant enough, but nothing special (although it did have a very, very nice bathroom).
Best Location, Friendly Staff
I've stayed at the jurys on Gt Russel st. 2 times on buisiness during the last few years.Both times I was very pleased both with the location which is perfect and with the rooms and amenities. The rooms vary in size but are very comfortable and the hotel staff is very friendly.very nice breakfast, I will surely return there next year.
The travel agent informed us that this was a four-star hotel. Since this was our first visit to Europe we went with his advice. What a disappointment! The room was in the back of the building overlooking the air conditioner. It was so small we had to keep our luggage in the hallway by our bathroom. The service during breakfast was horrible. We had to get our own coffee and toast. By the third day it improved somewhat. Also the room was not completely cleaned - half full coffee cups, soda cans, full garbage. About the only bright spot was the loungeman who went out of his way to make me iced tea. The location is excellent, but we are going to London next year but not to this hotel.
I'm on this site looking for some recommended accommodation for Manchester but thought I'd offer my opinion on a Hotel I've stayed in.
I've stayed in Jurys Great Russell Street on two occasions now. Once with the girl friend and once with a couple of mates of mine, on both occasions I wasn't let down.
The rooms are perfectly adequate and above the standards I've experienced within most hotels. The staff were more than pleasant when called upon and as for the location just of Tottenham Court road you couldn't get a better location. Right slap bang in the middle of everything but without the city centre noise.
Mostly everything about this hotel oozes quality. If you can afford the price of a room in this Hotel I'd heartily recommend it.
