Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hotel London
My brother reserved a room for 2 nights at Park hotel, got a room after 11 hours flight, he unpacked, was told he had to move to another room, and then told he had to walk to another hovel instead, he was exhausted, had to carry 3 items of luggage in a freezing cold day. The second hotel, ( --- ) which he had to find is utterly disgraceful, has threadbare carpets throughout, no lift, no heating, broken window pane, space for one bed, toilet lid does not stay up as handbasin in the way, no doorhandle,used soap, no room number, smells awful, broken tv set and only cornflakes for breakfast. After surviving a very uncomfortable night in a tiniest room, wearing his winter coat for warmth,he complained to staff, they put a mobile heater in his room, stick some tape over the hole on the window, and gave him £5 refund. I had a look at his room and was disgusted, worse than a prison cell. Please don't go to Corbigoe hotel in Belgrave road near Pimlico.

Date of stay Jan. 16, 2004 This hotel is one of several tiny B&B hotels on the street. I arrived on an early flight and got to the hotel several hours before check -in time but was treated to a cup of coffee while they got a room ready. The property is currently undergoing refurbishment and some rooms were not available. My single had been freshly painted with a new mattress, boxspring, carpet and TV. The bed took up most of the room. I travel out of my suitcase so it didn't bother me that there was no closet, drawers or shelf space but that could be a problem to some guests. The bathroom was a prefabricated unit with shower, toilet, and sink. I had pleny of heat and hot water .
I did not see any of the other 17 rooms so I can't comment on them. The staff was courteous and friendly addressing me by name each time I entered or left the property. This place may not be for everyone but if you need a safe, clean, and quiet space to use as a base while you are exploring London this might be for you.
Don't Think About Staying Here!!! Please I Beg you!!
I would rather sleep on a park bench than stay at this hotel!!
The hotel management does the following:
1. Overbooks all rooms, so they are on a first come, first serve basis- imagine arriving to London with your reservation & then finding out there are no more hotel rooms. However, they are always willing to find something at marked up prices. Just don't fall for it! We arrived at 7 am from an international flight & they told us to come back at 11 am- We cam back & had to fight & argue for a room- even though we had already paid with our credit card-
2. If you are unlucky enough to get a room, be aware: there is no heat, no hot water & no shower pressure- if you are willing to take a cold shower. The rooms are dirty, dirty sheets.
3. The management is not polite- very rude, not courteous & unwilling to help you with anything except when you pay for your room-
We have been traveling around the world, slept in tents, in hostals, in 5 star hotels, on top of mountains. We have never found a place as disgusting & needy of a terrible rating more than this place- Please, please, please- find any other hotel in London to stay in- even if it is the only room left in town- in that case- most likely you'll arrive & not have a room.
Please don't stay here!!!

Norte Dame was huge, and the kids climbed the bell tower and were up there when the bells chimed. Tomika and I sat through noon mass in Latin , she has blisters on her feet and boots on. We keep telling her to wear her tennis shoes, and how to tend to her blisters but to no avail. The pictures are of Justin outside Arc de Thrimph, a stained glass window, and the front of Notre-dame
... Martens that are brown, actual proper genuine leather, still go up my calves to keep my legs warm, and with a sole so solid I feel like I could join the army in them. We had an hour to burn so we made the crazy decision to go for a quick walk along Oxford Street to find an electronic store. You think Rundle Mall is full-on during the Christmas Eve rush? Multiply that by 100 and you might be in the ...
... food and perfect wine pairings - a Spanish Muscatel/Gurztraminer to die for!. Sweet time - back to hotel lounge to use our 15 pound voucher in the Lounge while I write. London now has Gin in Mind!! happy camper moi!! this is a Citadelle French gin served with a cinnamon stick and peppercorns and a new tonic called called Fever Tree - ok....time for bed after yet another FULL day .
Weren't we here to relax and chill?? maybe tomorrow ...
... The bus took us down Kingsland Road through the suburb of Shoreditch. Shoreditch seems to be going through a renaissance, but you can see it was an area of poor housing and poverty, and hence the needs for an alms-house. Originally the Museum was an alms-house for the elderly residents who could no longer work to earn enough to pay rent. Travelling down the Kingsland Road we went past the smallest house I’ve seen since we ...
... Next, we met up with Jimmy. He guided us to Stables Market. I thought I knew what we were walking into. Boy, did it take me by surprise! The Queen described it as catering to hippie culture. Jared said a number of the stalls reminded him of Shambala. Even Kenzie was looking around! 3 hours of wandering went by and we had barely noticed. We didn't go too crazy but definitely picked up a ...
