... our luggage and went out exploring. We found a great market around the corner. We wandered toward the center of town and was seduced by a "leafleteer" who was hawking a free two-hour walking tour around central Oxford, led by a "student." We decided to do it and after killing a few minutes in the souvenir shops, joined Tom and 40 other people. Tom was once a student but probably not now, was most theatrical with his many jokes and stories, and tidbits of history and other ...

... and Scott (other Canadians), went out for lunch on the last Sunday in March and were introduced to Pimms. Pimms is an alcoholic drink mixed with lemonade and fruit like limes and oranges. It was really nice to drink. We ate at Edinboro Castle which was a nice place in the Camden area, so March had truly been an eventful month! But April and May would be just as interesting! And I promise i will have them up shortly!
Until next time,

... all you can eat breakfast. The boy definitely took full advantage of the 'all you can eat' part. Now off to catch up with Olympics let the breakfast go down before a relaxing swim, jacuzzi and sauna before heading off to the airport at 3.00pm.

... to London's calling by the clash and rock it by little red so I'm enjoying the music on this trip. So I am writing this on the bus the next morning. So we got to the ibis hotel and I am rooming with Jacki from Adelaide. After we dropped our bags at the hotel we went on a bus tour of Liverpool. The guide was really good and I loved her accent. She showed us the 'King Victoria' statue which is a statue of queen Victoria but from a certain ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Grand London Kensington
Just an ordinary hotel!
My husand and me stayed in this hotel for three nights in June, the price rate is at US$124/night including breakfast. It's just an ordinary hotel and pls do not expect too much! The room is quite spacious and clean but without air-con. The room furnished with simple & old-used furniture & fixtures. What's more, part of the staff are in "long-faced".
My husband and I stayed at the Hogarth for 2 nights. I had booked the hotel on the internet after reading positive reviews on the Tripadvisor. We arrived very late or rather very early in the morning at around 2 AM.We were checked through very quickly with no hassles.
I have just come back from a weekend in London and I stayed at the Hogarth. It was the worst hotel I have ever come across in my entire life!
Overpriced but rooms larger than normal
I stayed 2 nights at this hotel & paid £65/night. The rooms are slightely larger than other budget hotels. There was no refrigerator as stated in a previous room however the lift was working. The room price did not include breakfast which I discovered upon arrival which I was very disappointed with given that I could get a room for the same price including breakfast closer to the centre.
Overall, the room is pleasent to stay in if that's where you spend most of your day. Hoever if you are only there to sleep then I think there are better options where you can get breakfast included & a more central location.
We stayed here for 6 nights in March. It was located at a nice location, very close to the subway station(Earl's Court) which can take you anywhere in London. I would advise taking the subway instead of taxis, since you will have to pay $$$$ for just a 10 min taxi ride. And there are various restaurants and pubs near the hotel. The hotel room was very small, compared to some of the other hotels we stayed in various countries in Europe. Hotel staff was very nice..We got a package deal through our travel agency and only paid $63 a night for a double room, which was worth it..If you didn't get this package deal, and booked the hotel while in London, it would have been triple the price(which is definitely not worth it)....Overall experience is nice, although each late night while we were there, you can hear various drunken people out on the street and being very loud.
The hotel was great deal. We stayed here in September. I recommend a room w/AC during the warm months. Also surprised to find that it also had a small refridgerator in the room. A few nearby pubs.
Nice hotel but overpriced
Hotel was nice tho I thought it was kinda overpriced. We stayed there twice in like a month and both times the elevator was out of service and there were no more fans to hand out either. It being July and extremely hot, this gave a small problem. The staf are quite friendly, some too friendly, and they got the lock off the window in our room. If you would like breakfast in bed make it known to the receptionist during the day and they can help you, no extra costs. I would not stay in this hotel again, simply because it is like I said before, overpriced. Even with the special internet rates!!
This hotel was an excellent value for the price. The location is great - Earl's Court is a convenient station & it was nice being able to take the Piccadilly Line directly from Heathrow. There are many restaurants in the area (everything from Chinese & Indian food to McDonald's, Subway & Pizza Hut). Continental breakfast was included with the room.
The Hogarth Hotel
Not knowing where to plant ourselves while in London I opted to find a hotel near a Tube station and risk the possibility of being in a questionable neighborhood but close to transportation. I poked around the Internet and found The Hogarth, in Earl's Court. About 2 blocks from the Earl's Court Station (a very easy walk) and not in a bad neighborhood (mostly Indian), the Hogarth offered convenience at a very reasonable price. The rooms are tiny, though, so be prepared. I'd stay here again, but now that I've been to London I think I'd look around for another hotel first before deciding on the Hogarth. Earl's Court is a nice enough area to stay in, and there are plenty of similar properties to choose from.
This hotel is located on a quiet street but very close to a tube stop. It is very clean & the help is friendly. The restaurant has average food but very slow. We were one of 3 couples for an early dinner and we had to wait over an hour to get our food. We would definitely stay there again.
