Travel Blogs from London
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, …
We arrived at the Oval this morning to rain and it just kept falling. It was barely a drizzle but enough to prevent play getting underway. After sticking around a while with no change we decided to head out of the ground to a shopping centre a couple of tube stops away. I'd wondered what was at the tube station Elephant and Castle, now I know and …

We've taken in the British Museum and the National Gallery (both free).... We've followed the entire route for the hop on hop off bus without once getting on board.....We've listened to all the rantings and ravings of protestors opposed to England's involvement with Syria and shuddered at the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Eagle Hotel London
We stayed at the Royal Eagle in October 2003 and were fully satisfied.
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.
