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.

Started off today in another park, this time Regent's Park. We came early which was a great time as the park was practically empty. Regent's has a lot more water features and flower gardens than Hyde did. After the park we headed into the British Museum where I spent most of the time in their Enlightenment section, Anna saw the ancient Greek and Roman ...
... you want. We landed in London at 11am and it was a quick trip through customs, picked up our back packs and headed to take the London Underground to our apartment. We managed to navigate the London underground pretty well and Chris was a great help with the ins and outs of using our transit cards and subway etiquette We had lunch at a little café called Café Forum and then it was off to check in to our apartment. We had a ...
... great to go to 'even song' at Westminster Abbey this evening (as I had done with Suja and Rafa last year) but we were so absolutely 'done in' that we just decided to enjoy the relaxing time left before leaving tomorrow morning for Rome. All I can say is - I will certainly do everything in my power to return to this wonderful cosmopolitan city where people speak my language, the countryside is beautiful and the history is ...
