... definitely (in)famous because of their association with the murders, but it was still quite nice to be led around a notorious area of the City, down cobbled alleyways and past centuries-old buildings by a local.
We won't bore you with the details, but this tour was truly fantastic and, judging by the size of the crowd compared to the three other Ripper tours we passed along the way, hugely popular. It is the only tour of its ...
Chris and I were both exhausted by the time we got to our hotel. After catching up on some sleep we started the following day feeling fresh and ready to explore London. First stop was Jamie Oliver's Recipease Cafe in Notting Hill, we both had a delicious breakfast, and couldn't help but take a few pastries for the road. Next we hopped on a double decker bus and rode around London sightseeing which ...

First stop had to be Monmouth Coffee, which had several *best* recommendations and I figured that was the place to try my Flat White. The line was out the door (but this is me we're talking about)...oh, that's right, the first stop had been a john! A woman was outside taking orders, which helped move the line along. When she told me their milk came from humanely treated cows in Jersey, ...
... were dashing with the lot of them. Now, if I could just remember which way to look before crossing... As I mentioned, we had lunch at a place called The Table. It was a cozy spot very near to the apartment, with high wooden tables and comfy padded stools. The menu was appealing, clearly geared towards the corporate lunchtime crowd: a focus on fresh ingredients, not too much fat, and as we discovered, nearly zero salt... But the price was right at just £11 for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Edwardian Sussex Hotel London
A Great Hotel
This is a stylish hotel is situated in a quite road close to Oxford St.
The rooms are dark, masculine, stylish and very clean. I highly commend this hotel.
Shop around and you should get a deal for £65 - £75 and is worth it at this price.
I will definitely return to this hotel.
We stayed at this property for two weeks in the latter part of May. Upon checking in, one of the desk agents upgraded us to a larger room because she felt we would be more comfortable. I was glad that she did because our upgraded room was the perfect size for our stay. The hallways were narrow as others have stated and I think if two really healthy people tried to walk side by side, it just was NOT going to happen. I found the ice machine on the 4th floor and instead of ice buckets in the room, large plastic takeaway glasses were beside the machine so no complaints there.
Based on the other recent reviews this hotel seems to be a little hit & miss, however in my case an enormous hit.
I can't agree more that this place is in a wonderful location! Right near Oxford Street shops and dining establishments, it's a shoppers and diners dream!
On arrival at the four star Sussex hotel we where welcomed by an incomepetent receptionist who was unable to communicate with us in an appropraite way even though we share the same language, she didnt even have the knowledge that Northern Ireland exsisted as a country and our registration was a complete farce in which we finally had to write down the name of our country of origin. After the struggle of checking in, we had high hopes for our room due to our research on the hotel and observation of photos and descriptions from various websites including the Radisson Edwardian official site. What a let down we had in store!
An excellent hotel that has been recently refurbished. I had a single room with a great double bed. The room was small but perfectly designed. Very modern and yet cosy. Nice marble bathrooms too. Staff are friendly and the location is ideal (just behind Oxford Street and close to underground station). Rooms have free high speed internet access which is a plus. The Bang & Olufsen TVs are great. Price was quite reasonable for this type of holel (Â£100 plus VAT).
I just (yesterday) returned from my trip in London. I stayed at the Sussex Hotel for 6 days and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is very modern, comfortable, warm, and clean. The location is PERFECT! It is right behind Oxford Street (big shopping street) and right near the Marble Arch Tube-about a 2 minute walk. The room was very cozy and very clean. Everything worked perfectly. I had never slept better on a hotel room bed. It didn't have one of those disgusting typical hotel bedspreads. It had a beautiful duvet, featherbed-SO COMFORTABLE. The staff was great! They were tremendously helpful and very friendly. I would highly reccomend this hotel and will stay there again in the future without a doubt.
My husband and I recently returned from a 4-night stay at the Sussex and I was suprisingly pleased with the accomodations. Due to the extremely high hotel rates in London, we booked this hotel on a grand re-opening special rate of 130$ pounds per night for a deluxe room with a real king size bed. This was the cheapest rate we could find, for a decent/cool hotel that was centrally located. The hotel decor was very contemporary and modern, the room comfortable and clean, and decent size for a king room in London. The front desk was a bit disorganized at times, but the employees at the desk were always kind. The location, just off Oxford Street, is excellent. The street the hotel is located on isn't so great as it faces the loading docks to the Oxford St. shops and is very noisy in the early morning, but in a 3 minute walk you can cross over Oxford St and be in Mayfair or on your way to New Bond St, Soho or charming Marylebone. The location and cool feel of the hotel, for the price, could not be beat. I am curious to see what they are charging for the rooms once the re-grand opening specials are no longer available. But while they are offered, I highly recommend this little hotel. One thing to keep in mind, we did get put into a standard room for a few hours while the hotel cleaned our deluxe room and it was TINY. I recommend getting the deluxe room as it is much more closer to what you would find in the states as a standard room. In their standard room you couldn't even move around.
The recently renovated Sussex was very dissapointing for the 4* luxury it advertised. The location is great for Oxford Street but the room was very small and not suitable for twin beds.It was hard to get around the beds due to the fridge/TV stand.Without a desk,chair or table in the room we had to make tea on the floor. The television was so close to the ceiling the only comfortable way to watch it was lying down.There was no hotel information in the room. The bathroom was large and well appointed. The were also problems with my reservation but it is hard to know whether they were due to computors errors. The restaurant was functional and comfortable, the food good but the price on the bill was higher than listed in the menu.
To be avoided!!
In my foolishness I thought I was going to stay at a Radisson SAS hotel, didn't realize this wasn't part of that chain but another, Radisson Edwardian. I don't think I'm the only one who makes that mistake, it must be a deliberate trap.
The hotel looked nice on pictures but I tell you this, never rely on pictures! The hotel wasn't cheap at all (130 pounds the night) but it was a dump. It looked like it hadn't been painted for 100 years, the floors were creaky, the room was small, the sink was about to fall off the wall...
I had booked 2 nights but escaped after only 1, to stay at Millennium Knightbridge. Which is a super hotel btw.
So, stay away from this place, it's horrible.
