Melia White House
Travel Blogs from London
Our legs are exhausted, especially after the 657 steps of St Paul's cathedral to the dome - but an amazing sight especially looking down to the cathedral floor below.
We got into London town about 3 on Friday and after unpacking, we went down to Piccadilly Circus to collect our London travel pass. It was a great …

Llegamos al aeropuerto de Gatwick asi que cogimos el Gatwick Express que tarda media hora en llegar a la estación Victoria. De ahí al hotel, lo mejor es coger el metro.
El hotel en el que estamos alojados es el Melia White House, muy bueno y muy recomendable.

Første dag på hotellet.
I've finally arrived in London and my first impression of it isn't that great. Saw all the Terrace houses. Took us 2 hours to get from the Airport to the Melia White Hotel on Albany Street(near Regent Park). Discovered all the back streets and that bus took us around in - it made my head ache!!!!! Then when we got to the Hotel - I was shocked by …
... scores from Handel, Mozart, and Bach, and lyrics by the Beatles. We also saw the Magna Carta. We were running short on time but we wanted to go to the British Museum, so we walked that direction. We had about a half hour there, but actually that was probably enough. The highlight for us was the Rosetta Stone, which was right inside the first gallery. The museum has a lot of ancient artifacts-- we saw a few rooms of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Melia White House London
Good but not great
Stayed in December 2003. Good hotel and comfortable rooms, even if some are rather noisy if placed on trafficated roads. The Hotel personnel is helpful whenever necessary and tries to meet your demands. However the quality manager is not really up to the quality of this hotel. He is more prone to talk than to do his best to provide a full service up to the (alleged) high standards of the hotel.
Fabulous weekend break
Wonderful service, room, location. Liked the extra touches i.e. sheets turned back at night and chocs on bed. Staff helpful, food lovely with lots of selection for breakfast. Have recommended to friends. Will stay again.
Great hotel at a good price
I satyed at this hotel for 3 nights in a Junior suite. I satyed there through my company rate, so it was quite cheap. The room was big for London standards, but the bathroom was very small and cramped espically in comparison to the room. I didn't personally like the decor (the room I had was victorian style) but I can imagine it would appeal to others.
However, I did encounter one problem and that was that I booked a twin beded suite, but no one told me that one of the beds would be a sofa bed, and the sofa bed was hardly a bed, so I had to do without. Overall I would say that this is a good hotel at a good price.
To loud, not very helpful stuff
Nice hotel, a little far from everything. But then... They put me in a room next to the elevator. Very noisy all night. Then I got a room on the front. Very loud from the street. They advertise that they have a gym. Some people have a bigger gym at their home (not talking of millioners' homes). As I am not a person that likes to complain about everything I was lucky when I could leave. Then they suprised me with a enormous telephone bill. Nobody cared about it nor would help me understand what was the reason for that amount. Even nice hotels can be very horrible.
The best 3 star hotel in London
I cannot remember the number of times I have spent at this hotel. I always stayed there even before Melia took it over. It was excellent previously to Melia, but now it is even better and has been refurbished beautifully. I will be arriving there tomorrow Oct.2 for 3 different stays. I thoroughly recommend this hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Sincerely. James Dillon.
Perhaps the best deal in London
We stayed here one night after booking through priceline. The price was very low, so I was not expecting much and was very suprised. This is a solid 4* hotel - nice rooms, great lobby, and good service. The location is a little off from downtown, but there are two tube stations near by. I had booked rooms in other hotels for this trip because I did not trust priceline, and now regret that I didn't stay here the entire time.
I booked this hotel over the internet for a very good price. A tip dont book through hotel as i had paid over £200 less than their price. Great location with tube station one mins walk away. As soon as you walk in the entrance it hits you how nice the hotel is. It was spotless. Staff friendly apart from the porter who nearly ran us over with his trolley.
We had a deluxe room which was great although a bit small but king bed and bathroom were amazing. Bar and restaurants again Superb.
I visit London at least once a year and two years ago decided to stay at this hotel. I've nothing but good things to say, excellent staff, clean hotel, great location. I can not say enough about the location.
The great portland tube station was across the street which made it easy to get around. Basic rooms were a little small, but very comfy.
When we arrived we checked in no problem and when we entered the room there was a knock at the door and our luggage was brought to us. The room was fantastic. We had a double delux which was more brill than we had expected. The staff are very friendly and look after you very well.
A brilliant weekend and will definately return!
A Great surprise
After getting into town using the Heathrow Express, short taxi ride to the hotel from Paddington Station. The hotel is very modern with a nice reception area and great bar. The hotel is very clean with very small bathrooms. Very busy with tour gps. and airline personnel. Staff very pleasant. Hotel owned by So. American firm. Location is a stones throw fom Regents Park and it's beautiful rose gardens. 10 min walk to Warren St. tube station. Rm. rates are very low on the internet.
