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, …

... contort themselves into crazy positions and do some acrobatics. The food and smells at the market are amazing; it is hard to decide what food to eat, and after perusing several of the stalls and a few taste testers I decided to have BBQ Korean pork with rice, spicy moist tender pieces of pork on a bed of spicy rice… Freaking DELICIOUS! The girls had little girly meals of vegetarian wrap and a pork ...
... who this is you are speaking of." "Also, what the heck is Boxing Day?") After eavesdropping on these hilarious conversations, taking a walk along the Thames to watch the sun set, and after eating my third Luna bar of the day (ALL of the restaurants are closed today), I'm calling it a day, and putting my jet-lagged self to bed.
Until tomorrow - when I hop on over to the lovely Emerald Isle - Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
... behold the head of a traitor." The head would be placed on a spit and marched through the streets of London then be taken to London Bridge and put above the bridge as a warning to all traitors.
