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 …
... she was on her way up to our room (1118). After 15 minutes of trying to find each other including me walking to reception barefoot, we figured that she'd gone to the wrong hotel! On the way, I had seen another Holiday Inn that was a big, white building and this was where she had gone. Finally, after a £12 taxi journey, Lindsey arrived at the hotel. After hours of discussing what each other had packed, we went to sleep to be ready for what was to come the next day! ...

Being a girl guide in my previous life, I loosely recalled the cardinal rule of the lost-ee stays put to be found. Tracey chose the advice of a psychic from a session months earlier – just make it to the next place – assuming she was refering to this very moment. We had vaguely discussed trying to make it all the way to the ferry town for the ...
... a German shepherd puppy named karma so it has been fun listening to those adventures of gaining a new family member. Once we got back on the coach we were driving to Stratford upon Avon, the town where the great English playwright - William Shakespeare was born in 1564, they still have the house he was born in, quite an eerie looking house to be honest, very old and dilapidated looking. We also took a nice walk along the green banks of river Avon ...
Today's adventure started with a Tube trip on the Piccadilly Line to Holborn Station, and a short walk (via a small cafe, because we were early) to the British Museum.
In the museum, we decided on a few items of particular interest we each wanted to see. We went to the Rosetta Stone first, just off the Great Hall ... along with most of the other visitors to the museum!
Dad had read an article in the local paper about the Roman British room, so ...

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 Jury¬ís 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.
