Here I am in Alaska.
No, I am not in Alaska, really. I am in Mickey's version of Alaska.
Our Hotel Room. I see visions of ice and penguins as I huddle under the covers

We spent our day in London yesterday seeing everything known to man.
It was funny, …
After checking out of our hotel, we made the short journey across the street and checked into our Eurostar train. We made it through Belgian security, then bag check, then UK border security. With only a few minutes to spare, we grabbed a coffee and boarded the train. Not as flash as our last trip on the Eurostar (it was a shame they only had 1 …
Sunday morning was leisurely before heading off to the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels. Lucy read a book all about the diamonds in the crowns last year so we HAD to visit. The crowds were huge, but the excitement and enthusiasm from Lucy and Dan made it all worth while! They absolutely loved the sparkly jewels, particularly the big ones! < …
After dropping off the car we headed into London on a very busy train. Not much fun with all of our bags and two children. Once we got into Victoria we were meant to get the tube over to Kings Cross............but the Victoria line was not operating!! Typical! Chaos on the underground. We finally gave up and hailed a black cab instead …

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London King's Cross St Pancras
We've stayed in this Premier Travel Inn at least a dozen times over the last few years.
We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the York Way, Premier Travel Inn. ( Myself, wife and two children 4 & 6 ).
We decided to take our 2 children to see the captial and a bit of our countries history during the school holidays. Was very unsure of the area to book for the hotel, and after reading the reviews on this hotel, we decided to give it a whirl. The whole 3 nights stay including train travel was £315 - good price, with the kids going free. When we got to Kings Cross, the hotel was simply across the road, and easy to find with the name banners. The lobby was very bright and clean, and even though we could not check in as we were early, they kept our luggage in a safe room while we went to see the sights. Check in was quick, and the staff very friendly - security was excellent, key cards for entrance to the room area, but not the lifts. The room was very clean, very fresh, and a good size for 2 adults and 2 kids - the kids beds were pulled out from the base of the adults bed. The adults bed was massive - air con in room great and clould leave on all night without having a dry throat next day. best night sleep in ages. Breakfast was a bargin £7.50 per adult with kids eating free - good choice of buffet breakfast, and tea and coffee was provided in the room which was great ( i don't do breakfast) . There is a Tesco metro at the corner and a Starbucks, within 2 mins walk - great for crisps and drinks for the day - Pizza place near by, which we ate in our room. Overall the stay was great and i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in London - especially with kids as the location is great for the train and tube. Fantastic
Stayed here one night between a trip to Edinburgh and flying home. I was visiting with my parents and stayed at the PTI in Edinburgh as well. PTIs seem to be very consistent in quality and product.
Excellent hotel -value for money and great location
Stayed here for one night with my husband. Paid £75 for the room and was pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortable the hotel was. Didn't expect much as we thought we had got it fairly cheap for London. But the location is great - only 2 minutes from Kings Cross Station and the reception staff were extremely helpful and let us check in at 11am. Won't stay anywhere else now when I'm in London.
This hotel is somewhat new - it was in excellent condition. Desk personnel were very friendly and the room was excellent. This was the end of our time in Europe and the bed was the most comfortable of any. I am told that for London, 85 Euros for Thursday night and 75 Euros for Friday night (VAT included) was an excellent value. The room was spotless as was the bathroom. The TV had 4 radio channels and about ten TV channels.
Travel Inn is not for those who needs a five star room, but for my money, this hotel has my vote. I will not stay anywhere else when I go to London now.
We decided to stay here - mainly because alot of hotels were already booked up being Easter weekend. We were not disappointed! The reception staff were friendly and the bar staff too.
I stayed here with members of my family in two rooms - one a standard, and one a family room. The rooms, although not huge, were good for London. They were clean, with everything you'd need, and not noisy, comsidering the location. The location is great - opposite King's Cross station, but outside the congestion zone. And the family room - two adults and two children for £75 per night - has to be one of the best bargains in London.
