          We enjoyed our 4 day stay at the London Elizabeth. The hotel is in a beautiful and very old building. The hotel staff was top notch and very helpful every time we had questions. The lobby area and connecting restaurant are quaint and lovely.

          The location is perfect - across the street from Kensington Gardens and the Tube.

          Being an old hotel, the lift is not what most people are used to. It is very, very small and very slow. The 3 of us got in and nobody could wear a backpack or the door would not close. The stairs to the top floor are a long way up but our daughter elected to take the stairs after the first trip. We were just off of an 11 day cruise so we had a lot of luggage. It took multiple trips to get it all to our room.

          We were in room 449 (5th floor to what people from the U.S are used to). Our room was huge by European standards. The room had 3 single beds, 2 were pulled together. This worked well for us. Our adult daughter had a real bed instead of a cot. The room and hallways were very clean and the bath had ample towels, soaps, etc.

          The room had a ceiling fan but the AC either didn't work or was not intended to work. Two nights it was very warm and we were uncomfortable even with the fan. The windows did open so as the air cooled over night the room became more comfortable. With the windows open there is a lot of street noise. We are used to NYC noise so the noise was not a problem for us but could be for some.

          The room had no closet but had an ample sized armoire. We had some problems opening the old safe in the armoire but the staff was quick to respond to our call for help. We used the small fridge to keep a few beers and ciders cold.

          The floors sloped quite a bit due to the age of the hotel. This provided some laughs just getting off of a cruise ship. The carpet in the room was fairly warn and had some irregularities. It should probably be replaced soon.

          The old bathtub was huge and very deep. For baths this was great, for showers real care needed to be taken getting in and out. We were very frustrated with the toilet. Siphoning British toilets take some getting used to but the one in this bathroom seemed much more temperamental than others we've used. It did work eventually but was more than a minor annoyance.

          Our reservation included breakfast. The restaurant had a fairly simple buffet for breakfast - cereal, pastries, boiled eggs, fruit salad,. You could also order toast. It was quite adequate for us. We ordered one late night light meal to take back to our room. It was excellent.

          I wish I could give the hotel a higher rating because we really enjoyed our stay. The lack of AC and the plumbing issues were the things that most impacted the 3 stars vs 4.

          great thing about going to Europe in winter is at most places, the lack of
          tourists. On our tour, there was only us and a nice French couple. Which meant
          our tour guide took us places they usually can’t in Summer with large groups.
          Yay! This was a great tour with a very funny guide. The only downside to going
          in winter is that they don’t do plays in the Globe Theatre (but still do in
          their brand new playhouse ...

          ... to go back.
          The past 20 days were an absolutely amazing experience to say the least. My favorite part of traveling is by far trying the foods, and I would love to do 20 more days to other places if I could. I don't think that I would suggest doing 20 straight days though; I would suggest doing a week or 10 days at a time, because traveling can be stressful, tiring, and of course expensive. But I regret none of it - you cannot put a value on these experiences.

It leaves 20 minutes late which is pretty impressive given the mayhem that was going on. Well arrived at St.Pancras station. I have purchased my Oyster Card and had a very nice healthy salad at a franchise called "chopped" so that I could check my Emails. Darren my Airbnb host doesn't get home until ...

          We agreed to get up early and hopped on the train at 9:10am, to go to Oxford Street for some more shopping and explore Primark. We didn't make our 10:15am planned exit time so we took a taxi to the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. We thought we had arrived early (11:00am) however others who were standing at the front had arrived by 10:15am. We still got ...
