Good accessible Hotel in London
Transfered to this hotel due the the Comfort Inn not being appropriate, I found this hotel superb. For the price this is excellent, quality of room, fully accessible, with choice of accessible shower or bath. Good sized well furnished rooms that are easy to get a wheelchair in and around, Staff extremely helpful. Food reasonable for a chain hotel. Would recommend it to anyone needing an accessible hotel, and the location is great just round the corner from some of the main attractions in London.
Buon rapporto qualità/prezzo
Buona posizione (a pochi passi dalla metro). Le camere erano molto spaziose e perfettamente pulite, i letti comodi, il bagno fantastico, ecc. Il bar era aperto 24 ore su 24. La colazione era buona e c'era un assortimento piuttosto ampio, purtroppo la sala era sempre piena e bisognava fare una lunga coda, persino alle 8.00 di domenica mattina! - Per fortuna siamo scesi alle 7.30, così non abbiamo dovuto aspettare! L'unico problema lo abbiamo incontrato all'atto del check-in. Avevamo prenotato 3 camere per non fumatori con oltre 2 mesi di anticipo (prima che l'hotel aprisse), ma quando siamo arrivati erano rimaste soltanto delle camere per fumatori!! Non capisco come sia potuta succedere una cosa del genere! Quindi, siamo finiti in camere per fumatori nel seminterrato! Meno male che l'hotel è nuovo, di conseguenza non c'era alcun odore di fumo. In generale, è un hotel molto bello.
Cercavamo una sistemazione in centro e alla fine abbiamo scelto quest'hotel, anche perché è appena stato aperto nel marzo 2007. Quando siamo arrivati e abbiamo fatto il check-in, abbiamo scoperto che c'era a disposizione soltanto una camera per non fumatori (noi ne avevamo prenotate 2 e con oltre una settimana di anticipo). L'hotel ha ben 3 piani riservati ai fumatori!!!!!!! Comunque, abbiamo protestato, ecc. ecc., così ci hanno spostati in una camera familiare. A parte questo inconveniente, l'hotel è molto bello e pulito e la colazione è buona (ma dopo aver mangiato, i clienti devono sparecchiare la tavola). Per arrivare al London Bridge e alla Torre di Londra a piedi ci volevano 10 minuti e lo stesso tempo per raggiungere la stazione della metro più vicina, Algate East. Un taxi per il West End costava 15 sterline (circa 22 euro). Mi è piaciuto molto, ci tornerei volentieri.
Value for money
Good location (short walk to tube). Rooms very very spacious, spotlessly clean, comfy bed, gorgeous bathroom etc. Bar open 24 hours. Good breakfast - good range of food, although it got very very busy (big queues by 8am sunday morning!) - thankfully we got there for 7.30 and just missed the queues!!
Only complaint was check in. We had book 3 non smoking rooms over 2 months earlier (before the hotel had opened) but when we checked in they had only smoking rooms left!! Couldnt really understand why that would happen?! SO we ended up on the basement level in smoking rooms! Thankfully as the hotel is new, it didnt really matter as we couldnt smell any smoke. Overall it was a very nice hotel.
we wanted to stay somewhere close so choose this hotel [and it was only opened in march 07].the only problem we had when we checked in was to find out that the two non-smoking rooms we booked they only had one left [we booked well over 1 week]we were not happy about this they have 3 floors for smokers!!!!!!!
anyway we said we were not happt etc etc and in the in they 'upgraded'us to a family room. apart fr that very nice clean hotel,good breakfast [but you have to clear the tables yourself]. took 10 mins to walk to london bridge and the tower of london nearest tube was algate east about 10min walk. taxi cost about £15.00 fr west end. would stay there again very nice.
Clean, new, spacious modern hotel.
A new hotel in the heart of the City of London, close to Tower Bridge and Tower of London.
This is a new hotel so very modern, excellent decor and eveything working. Nice new TV, kettle, and a comfortable bed. My room came with a view of the Mayor's Office and Tower of London. Very large room (for England), full-length mirror and also round mirror, nice pictures and enough space for 2 people to hang clothes. A desk big enough to study at, comfortable chair and desk lamp. Coffee, tea and biscuits every day.
They advertise wireless internet at 5 pounds per hour, but the signal strength was so poor I couldn't connect. But Starbucks is 5 minutes walk, and free wireless access! (monday to friday only).
The bathroom was very modern and clean, with a big shower cubical and nice shower. No bath but you could fit 3 people in the shower!
Very friendly, helpful staff. The bar attendant coudn't do enough for us.
Breakfast wasn't included in my deal, and at 10 pounds per visit I decided to visit the local cafes for coffee and a croissant - there are lots in the area (weekdays only - the local cafes and bars are mostly shut during saturday and sunday).
Great location for East London sights, 10 minutes walk from Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
Only a few negatives to this hotel - there was no safe in the room; no fridge; no glasses for drinks. No trouser press. But overall, very good - I give it 8 out of 10.
A little character-less, but the location and mordern decor make it well worthwhile. Highly recommended!

... has been meeting there since the thirteenth century. We then decided to go see the front of the abbey which was covered in scaffolding, like most things in Europe, we did think about going in but then saw it was 20pounds, so that defiantly wasn't happening. This is the church that William and Kate were married in, also the church where all the royals are married and have their funerals held.

Waiting in Heathrow airport for our flight to Bangkok when we hear about a bomb that just exploded, killing over 20 people, just 10 mins walk from where we were staying. The 10 hour wait in the airport gave us plenty time to think about this, which wasn't the best start to our ...
London Today is a day to go exploring around London. It is a partly cloudy day and the weather much more mild. It is good to escape the heat of Italy. I found London a bit daunting when I arrived yesterday and the train into the city was fine if you knew where you were going! Today I got on the double decker bus and did a lap of the city. ...
... would chuckle to himself. I liked him.
I got back to the apartment about 4:30am then went to sleep. The next morning I got up and my CS host came into the city with me. He showed Milan and I around to some more of the classic sites, like Camden market, the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. I loved the markets in Camden - there was so much there! We also checked out Primrose Hill which was gorgeous. After that I headed back to the airport to head back home.
... London, but we took the tube to Leicester Square, which was still hopping, because of all of the shows, I assume. We ate at Dishoom, which "pays loving homage to the Irani cafes that were once the fabric of life in Bombay". Travis had heard good things about this place and we were getting a little tired of fried, bland british food. It was packed with "Indians" (no idea what the proper term is here), so that was a good sign. We beat the 10:55pm order ...
