Good value for budget price
We stayed at the Royal Eagle in October 2003 and were fully satisfied.
The room was sufficiently sized for a weekend stay (we even had 3 beds - but also the 2 bed rooms that we saw were nice enough). The bathroom was relatively recently renovated and clean. The reception was nice and efficient. Location is very convenient. The Breakfast room is too small for the large number of guests and you may have to wait for a table.
Food Choice is - of course - very basic. BUT don't forget what you pay compared to other places in LONDON!!! For the same money you may easily end up in a mouldy rathole (happened to us). We heard people complaining in the breakfast room. Well, add some extra 100 GBP per night and find the amenities you are looking for elsewhere (and leave the Nutella glass on the buffet for everybody instead of taking it to your table). We would choose this hotel again. (ask for a room on the upper floors. The ground floors may be noisy because of the underground and trains passing in this area.)
The rooms stank of smoke and the drains.I was moved to another beside a very noisy lift. The staff were rude and unhelpful, the breakfast inedible. The whole place shakes every two minutes from the tube trains running underneath. It is truely awful.
The hotel is located in Bayswater and close to Paddington Station and Hyde Park.It is on a main road (noisy) in what felt to be an unsafe area. My non-smoking room smelled of cigarettes, the bedspread was dirty, the shower door was half blocked by the bathroom sink and the room rumbled with passing trains (to/from Paddington).It was mid-January and sleeting at times, so I requested the heat be turned on, and though the staff promised they would, they never did. They kept claiming it was on, though the heating unit in my room was always cold to the touch.
At one time I would have given this hotel the highest rates possible. However as some of my family members have been back and say that it is no longer up to par I will have to give it a 3. Our room was a triple, very spacious and luxurious. The staff was very helpful, particularly James, a Panamanian, who made our stay wonderful. The bathroom was beautiful black marble and the room overlooked a cute little Mews. The location is superb, right near Paddington Station. The breakfast was delicious, but I have heard it is no longer so. For more information I reccomend seeing the travelocity reviews. For London hotel discounts go to discountcityhotels.com. I believe the decline of this hotel has been it's availability on the Internet.

This morning we headed to Edinburgh airport, dropped the hire car off and checked in for our flit to London via virgin Atlantic. I was impressed with myself, another flight with no drugs. It only took about an hour in the air. Thankfully I got a nice girlie at checkin. I was 3kgs over baggage limit. She asked to see my carry on, that didn't help, …
Today's main attraction was the Tower of London. This is a medieval palace that William the Conqueror first built, although it was added to and lived in by many Kings like Henry III. There is a moat and walls that you can walk along the top. I wasn't aware how much a time commitment it involves s it is many parts. A major attraction.
Before Tower of London I already visited two other sights: The ...
Well, we stayed at home for much longer than planned this year. First I had to have my thyroidectomy, and then Jordan & Ash decided to get married on the 10th of May. It all fitted in well together, except for us living with mum for 6- whole months, which I felt bad about. She is used to living by herself & has her own ways of doing things, which I/we clearly disrupted. But she was very gracious and welcoming. Anyway, we ...
Omg....this morning I woke up with the worst hangover I've had in a longtime and on top of that I was sick and on top of that I had another night of drinking in front of me. I often talk about what a crazy London drinking culture it is there. My friends that live here have a drink almost every day and looking back on my week that seemed about right. I do believe I've been drunk in London more than any other city I've lived in! So this morning I had lots and lots of water and ...
Feeling a bit seedy after Ultimate Anthems... but luckily we were only planning to have a quiet day in at Kristy's place to watch Outlander.
So got to Kristy's and bought some dirty chicken for lunch and then settled in for snacks and four amazing episodes of Outlander- although we really just wanted Claire and Jamie to have sex... unfortunately going to have to wait another two episodes for that!
So shattered that left Kristy's place around 9.30pm and just went to ...
