... and Esprit at this stage, but I am sure there is room for more in her stable.
The day improved significantly at 11.14am with a pint of Heineken at the train station and as I write this I am sipping on a Brazilian beer on one of Ric************'s train's using his free wifi as we head north to Glasgow. Sal was not super happy that we miss London's hottest day of the year at 27degrees, and it seems Scotland has not yet ...
... letter of thanks from me soon. It does, however, feel good to be moving on for the moment.I feel very fortunate to be working in The Natural History Museum, such a beautiful and historic spot! They didn't have much on Busk, but they did have a few letters, which was great because I have yet to see a single letter from Busk (which is sort of a problem, and also extremely weird). ...
... we got in we thought we wouldnt never find anyone else but luckily we did right away! At one point Hayley and I were on top of a stage dancing which was a blast! Finally Benny came on and Kate, Hayley and I went straight to the front. I was happy that we went, saw Benny benassi from like a couple feet away and had a great night. I got to sleep around 5 and set my alarm for 8:45 since Dom and I were going to do the London Eye and see Big Ben the ...
... removes some of the reward by forcing the ideas of a segment of population on everyone. As a result, productivity falls and people fail to aim towards self sufficiency and a comfortable living. It will be interesting to see how my political and economic views change as my journey progresses - particularly as I head through some impoverished and poor third world countries. On Friday I travelled into London for drinks with some of my closest friends and those I ...
... and give you an idea of it, and some of them you just can’t tell what is happening, but all in all it was just insanity!
Once the fireworks were over which was about 15 minutes later the inevitable question was how to get back to the hotel. The side of the bridge was closed where Big Ben is, so we had to walk down the other side of Southbank and back into London that way. But all of the buses were very full and when we got on a bus the traffic was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Malmaison London
Stayed at Malmaison during the week of Sept. 12th. It is a lovely hotel that, while it caters to the business-trip visitors, is also centrally located to various tourist attractions in London. We stayed in 318, a nice size room with a king-size bed. Our room overlooked a beautiful courtyard.
Just back from my second stay at the Malmaison and thought I'd write another review to balance my previous one which was not too complimentary. In my previous review ("Lovely building, Stylish Lobby, Shame about the rooms"), I stated that I would only ever go back to the Malmaison if I could get a larger room, and that it be at the front of the building. So, true to my word, this time round I shelled out an extra £40 and booked myself into a superior double (for £205 normal rate - but I suspect there is a weekend rate as well, which would be cheaper), and requested a room at the front.
Great Hotel, in a quiet location
I have stayed at many Malmaison Hotels in the UK on business and leisure. When I am in London, I normally will stay at the Mal, especially on Business. It is close to the tube station, rooms are quite small, so i normally book a deluxe room or a Junior Suite.
The rooms have climate control air conditioning, CD players, Sky TV, high speed free internet access and cheerful staff, the hotel shines -it is spotless and the rooms are stylish.
Stayed at Malmaison on a Saturday night in March. Lovely room overlooking the sqaure. On booking, we had requested a large room as we heard they could be small. The room was large with a lovely bathroom.Our one complaint would be the service. There were several people trying to check in with only one receptionist, hence we waited for at least fifteen minutes, only to be told our room would not be ready for another hour (we arrived mid-afternoon). We went in the bar in the evening and waited a good ten minutes to be served, in the end we gave up and drank from the highly priced mini-bar instead. The bill for the breakfat was put on the table before the breakfast actually arrived!
A lovely stay
We stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon and had excellent service. The rooms are very clean and stylishly decorated. The bed was comfy and the room was quite spacious. Very quiet peaceful location.
We had brunch so were able to check out at 3pm for no extra charge. The restaurant is in the basement and serves delicious breakfast food - not too expensive either, I recommend the eggs benedict!
It is quite handy to the tube station - easy walking distance.
I haven't stayed at any other Malmaison so cannot compare.
I have stayed at the Malmaison London on business on several occasions in 2003 and 2004 and it has become my favourite London hotel (unfortunately, it also tends to be very heavily booked up!)
hotel is ideally situated so that all central london attractions are within easy walking distance.
our bedroom was superb and there was a great atmosphere in the bar and brasserie.
all staff were courteous and could not do enough to ensure that your stay at the hotel was relaxing and pleasurable.
wonderful value for money - highly recommended.
Malmaison hotel in London
A bit like a W only smaller. No business center, but they let us know, after we got there, that if you bring your own laptop you can plug it in to the web for free in your room. Like the other user said, great if you have business in downtown London, but if your a city tourist this location is not for you. Service was a bit lacking.
This is a lovely small hotel in a lovely quiet square near the Barbican - not central enough if you are a traditional tourist, but great if you have business to do in the City of London. Service was pleasant, decor very much to my taste. However my (double) room was small (and I am told they have even smaller ones!), with nowhere much to go except the bed. It overlooked a brick wall at the back of the hotel and therefore was very dark and gloomy. The bathroom was designed in such a way that each time I had a shower the floor got completely flooded and I had to use several towels to mop it up. I appreciated the wide screen tv but the contents of the minibar were unimaginative. Basically the hotel reminded me of a much lesser copy of the W Hotels chain (which are my favourite hotels whenever I am in the US).
Not bad - but not a patch on other Malmaison's!
Hi - my wife and I spent a weekend at the Malmaison in London. As veterans of the chain we expected the same high standard as say the Leeds or Manchester Mal but we came away disappointed.
The lobby lacks the chic of the other Mal hotels and the restaurant does not seem to have the Brasserie atmosphere. The service in the restaurant was a huge letdown. Rooms were pretty small too.
On the plus side - it's location is great and it is really quiet there, you will get a good night's sleep!
