Good for budget hotel
My family and I stayed in December 2004 in a quad ensuite room. Clean adequate place to stay. Better than average breakfast with eggs and toast. Nice extra. Close to tube station, restaurants, and shopping center.
When we got there, there had been a leak the night before and one of the quad rooms were out of commission. We were given the choice to staying at the hotel or at a 2 bedroom flat nearby. Well, we chose the flat which was beautiful and very large. (Only the kitchen needed some work, the rest of the place was great) We had a terrace, huge windows, and great comfortable beds. With 2 boys, aged 15 and 12, the space was appreciated. We walked to the hotel for breakfast, which I enjoyed, my kids found the food a bit boring. The location was great. We were right near the tube, the rail station, and many conveniences. The famous Peter Pan statue was right inside the nearby gate to Hyde Park. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Clogged Shower and Expensive Rate
We stayed at the Leisure Inn for two nights in April 2004. When we arrived the shower was clogged and I informed the front desk attendant. He said that he would send a plumber to unclog the drain. The second day the drain was obviously still clogged. There also was no air conditioning, so be prepared if it is a warm day in summer. In addition, the morning buffet consisted of orange Tang, coffee, tea, hardboiled eggs, white toast, butter and jelly. This was all for 109 pounds (approximately $200) for a triple. Quite expensive for what you get!
I wouldn't go here again, but they did one good thing
Me and my girlfriend booked this hotel late january 2003 for 2 nights. We booked a double room for £35 per night. When we arrived late at night and wanted to check in, the guy told us they had a "little plumbage problem" and told us we would have to stay at an other hotel which they provided for us. This was the good part of the stay since the hotel they gave us instead "The Duke of Leinster", had a wonderful room with panorama view and was clean and freash. This hotel took great care of us and their breakfast was good. The second night we tried again to check in at Leisure Inn, and this time it worked. The room was very little (supposed to be a double room), it was badly cleaned and the "bathroom" more or less looked like something they built them self over a night or so.

... prices. Rested, then went to dinner at what turned out to be a Romanian/Italian restaurant, which sounds weird, but was really good. Lare is now snoring at 8 pm and I will not be long behind him.Tomorrow we take a short walk to the Tube station ("Mind the Gap!") and a short walk to the British Museum and around Covent Gardens and environs. Sunday we drive to Newbury and get as close as we can to Highclere Castle where they are currently filming season 5 ...
... I got a tea and scone, everyone else bought some cake. When we arrived in Oxford, we all packed into Eva's car, and drove to her apartment in Abingdon, just south of Oxford. A quaint, intimate apartment, Eva's couch took up almost the entire living room, and it was a squeeze to fit a double bed and desk in one of the bedrooms. It was tight, but we made it work. For dinner, we drove back into Oxford for some Chinese food, then we went home to sleep.

Apart from an annoying family in adjacent seats the Eurostar was quite good - whizzing thru the French countryside and arriving on schedule in London where Jessie was waiting to meet us. We retrieived the bike box and were lucking to spot a large Mercedes van taxi in the taxi queue and took the luxury of a taxi to Jessie's flat in Evelyn Gardens where we had a light dinner and caught up on each other's ...
We started early for our last day in london .We walked to London Bridge and then caught the Ferry up to Westminster so we could observe the houses of Parliament and BIG BEN. Thankfully the queue into Westminster Abbey was was not so long and we able to take a self guided tour. What we hadn't realised before our visit was how famous the Abbey was ...
8.5 month! That's so long.... I had no idea how people travel for that long yet I did it. It's the end of the era which is sad, but it's a beginning of a new one, which is really exciting and I'm confident full of fun and opportunities. I was felt emotional leaving home in Bangsar - it really felt that I do have 2 homes - one in our flat in Bangsar and another is London. And it's not KL as a ...
