... the royal box-20 seats that were originally purchased by Queen Victoria for £100 per seat for a 500-year lease. Go figure; though each seat holder must pay £1000 per year for maintenance. We also saw the royal retiring room which is where the royals "drink during the interval." Overall, a very interesting tour. We progressed to the Physic Garden, which was created in 1687 by apothecaries of the time for the purpose of studying plants. We had a free tour of a portion ...
... to happen!
We didn't actually end up buying anything at the market and the weather was so poor that we only fit in the market before having to go back to the hotel and dry off.
The aim whilst in London was to do two things a day in order to fit everything in, however, today we went to the Museum of London, which I hadn't been to on any of my previous trips, and ended up spending so many hours there that it was about all we ...
We arrived at Heathrow Airport safe & sound. After a mix-up with transportation, we made it to our hotel. The folks at the hotel were super nice. They upgraded us to a little bigger room on a floor with fewer stairs. After settling in and a bit of rest, we went out to ...
... after us and Dave and Kendra offered us their tickets as their seats were better and closer to Aly and Jacquie. I felt really bad taking their seats but also really appreciated the gesture. Therefore, our seats were amazing! We were 4 or 5 rows from the stage on the left side. First up, starting at 4:15pm, was Chris Young, aka my future husband.O Of course he was amazing! The Band Perry was up next, followed by Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley. The entire night was incredible. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Reem Hotel London
The Reem is great. It's clean, attractive, on a quiet street, very well located in a cool district, near a tube stop (see below), and it's only around $50 GBP a night! In London, this is an amazing deal for a double room. Also, you are within walking distance of Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park, and the Notting Hill neighborhood.
Nice and quite hotel near the Hyde park.
Rooms are very small, but everything else were OK. The stuff was very kindly all the time.
I forgot 2 shirts in the room. After phone call they send me it by mail to SLOVENIA. Great. Thank you very much again. The stuff got mark: excellent.
My Fiance's birthday was coming up and I thought a surprise trip to London would be just the thing. After a browse on the web, I decided the best deals were at the Reem Hotel in Bayswater, London. I went ahead and booked it. In the week leading up to our weekend away I came across this web site and excitedly opened up the reviews on this hotel.
I stayed at the Reem last year also in the basement room 3a, no view. I was meant to be upstairs but they wouldn't let me have my room although it was ready because I was too early. At 12 they let me have the downstairs room only because I said I would have to sleep in the office because I hadn't slept since leaving Australia and couldn't stay awake any longer. I stayed there 18 nights and the sheets were changed only twice although the room was tidied and the bed made daily. The cleaners left my window open everyday after they finished, my passport/ticket etc could have easily been stolen as the gate at the head of the steps leading down to the tiny yard where my window was, in open view to all passersby, never closed. The room was tiny about the size of a bathroom, only about 2 feet walking space between the bed and the wall and no room for luggage. The bathroom was adequate and looked like it was recently renovated. The bedding was thin and cheap and the walls were painted a tacky orange. Poor TV reception with just one cable channel - European sports. No radio. Breakfast was included but it was the cheapest quality - powdered milk etc. Eggs were the only hot food on offer and they charged an extra 5 pounds for this. Staff were uncaring and arrogant and sometimes pretended not to speak English if problems arose. Common responses to being asked for help were 'it's not my job' (help with luggage etc) or 'it's not my problem' if the food/room/service were not up to scratch.
I was very unhappy with this hotel. The room I was given was in the basement level with a window you couldn't see out of and right underneath the reception desk. I could not get any quiet with all the upstairs noise let alone any sleep. I complained to the staff who laughed at me and told me firstly there wasn't anyone walking around the hotel was empty then told me the hotel was full when I wanted another room. Another guest came in to complain that his room wasnt big enough for one person and didnt have a private bathroom, kettle, tv.. etc all the things it was supposed too. As for it being 3 star, its a 2 star hotel with superficial refurbishments. If you book it through lastminute or want a single you will be given a bad room.
