The Chelsea Harbour Hotel

... I will probably only have time for this one production. I bought my ticket to The Perceptionists online. While there are hundreds of productions to choose from, this one looked the most enticing. It is only an hour long, only a few hundred feet away from a tube station on the speedy Victoria line, and on the top floor of a pub: Hens and Chicks. It is a comedy sketch show put on by ...
... the Strand and Fleet Street is the Temple Bar memorial that marks the boundary between the City of Westminster and the City of London. Going down Fleet Street we passed the Law Courts, which were quite impressive, and then down Ludgate Hill to St Paul's Cathedral. It is a stunning building and it is incredible it survived the war because it is HUGE. From St Paul's, the bus heads past the Monument to the Great Fire of London, across the Thames via London Bridge ...
... Once on the platform we sat and waited for our train, thank heavens Narelle is a stickler for being early after all the mucking around with the lifts. There was a bit of confusion with incoming trains being moved to different platforms so we sat and stressed over this happening to us as the trains don't stop too long and we would have to negotiate the stairs again in a hurry. Well no need to worry, not about that anyway. We were in carriage 2 ...
Our last day today, sad to be leaving, we have had such a fantastic holiday. Finished the packing, then went out for a walk with Sue along the beach. Caught the ferry across from Mudeford to Hengistbury Head and walked past all the little beach houses, up the hill for a fab view along the coast. Dragged ourselves away from Sue, her lovely house and fantastic hospitality, popped in quickly to say goodbye to Valerie and then hit the road for the ...
... at couple of screens of all these silent British Airways Business class flyers to see what they're so seriously working on. All were just ******* around on Facebook. Shameless!
After some flavored water I called CWL to finish the booking of the new hotel and update on our pickup, and soon it was time to board.
The flight was quite uneventful, and the service mediocre. Given the price that the company is paying for these tickets I expected ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Chelsea Harbour Hotel London
Loved the Hotel
We stayed here on 7th May 2004. Have never stayed in a hotel in London before and found this hotel to be very good. The Room was lovely and comfortable. The food was very good. Would stay here again when next in London as the room rate was very good for the area the hotel is in.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great hotel to stay in while in London.
Just spent three nights at this wonderful hotel. The Chelsea Suite was just fine - large bedroom and living room and sumptuous bath. Coffee maker was a plus as were two televisions. Even though hotel is a little out-of-the-way, it was okay.
We walked forty-five minutes to Buckingham Palace. Wouldn't advise walking back - take tube to Fullham-Broadway station - pleasant walk back to hotel. Great experience.
Honeymooners in London 5stars is the only way to go!!!
Everything the reviewers say about this hotel is true. Its is amazing!!!! Professional Staff ...very polite and business manner....the suites are sensational. If I was on a business trip this is the hotel I will stay at....the suites are so classy! Chelsea district is a very influential area...cool little pub near the hotel too. Anyways, I can't find a flaw at this hotel except for the gym, its a bit small, and not that fancy compared to the suites, but still its a great hotel for Europe. I felt well relaxed after using their spa! I also reviewed the Waldorf London too. see it.
Conrad is A+
Very Nice! And pricey!
WOW! That sums it up. Nice hotel! Luxury! You have a menu for which pillows you would like to sleep on. It is on the A3 bus line, which drops you right out front. The A3 takes you to the Earl's Court tube stop and you can use the same ticket for bus and tube. It's a quiet location and off of the beaten path. It's walking distance for most people to the main street where there are plenty of shops and restaurants/pubs. The spa/exercise areas are very nice. Very large! If you can't find your equipment here, you won't find it in London. This hotel is in Chelsea, so it's a ways from downtown, but easy access via bus and tube. The only complaint is the when people shut their room doors, you can hear it a mile away. It shook our room everytime someone shut their door. It was loud and nerve racking in the middle of the night. The marble bathroom is very nice. People were friendly and it was very clean. It should be for the price.
Fab! The location, staff and atmosphere were superb (I am picky). Room was tasteful and elegant, the shower was the best I have experienced.
Clearly the hotel uses a great water softner, leaving your skin silky smooth! I especially appriciated the "pillow a la carte". Very reasonably priced for this type of hotel in London.
We stayed five wonderful nights at the Conrad London from February 18-25, 2004. We thoroughly enjoyed our hotel stay and have never slept better at any hotel in our lives! You have 2 wonderful rooms which is wonderful for spreading out and two very comfy beds. The decor is modern but very warm and inviting. Fresh flowers, coffee maker, a fridge, and a balcony. They even offer free over-night shoe shine and a pillow menu where you can select one of ten or twelve that will suit you just right! The heating was great and we were never cold. Great, large bathroom with a good shower (and tub), as well as a guest toilet room... how many european hotels give you two bathrooms! Free internet and computer center available (telephone charges were very expensive). We stayed here because we used Priceline and were at first upset because we had chosen Knightsbridge, and the Chelsea area where this hotel is located, is somewhat out of the way. But once you get acquainted with the bus system, this hotel was worth it!!! We highly reccomend this hotel to anyone wishing for a non-tourist stay that is very comfortable and roomy!!!
Great, pleasent stay
I have stayed there many times, always great, have had no major problems. It is worth ur money, especially if u spend a little more and get a harbour view. Very peaceful for central london (except when stars stay there and there are screaming fans). Good Food.
Luxurious Hotel. Service excellent and suites large and beautifully decorated. Would definately stay again and have recommended to all of my colleagues.
Could not have picked a better hotel to celebrate my 40th
It was an amazing experience
my stay at the conrad hotel was amazing with this amazing view of the harbour and the most brilliant kind staff it was well worth every penny i spent there and im going bk this week evrytime i go to london i will definatly staying there it has gorgeous rooms and the most amazing resturant and bar im from a working class background and they get all sorts of people staying there footballers pop stars yet we still got treat the same as everyone else it was just so fantastic and well worth all my money and time so i give it a very very good thumbs up id advise anyone who is thinking of a stay there to stay there and anyone that hasnt been to go.
If you don't like lifts...go elsewhere
The suites in this all-suite hotel are small (the bedroom area is no wider than the bed plus bedside cabinets). The bed is gorgeous - big, comfortable and with beautiful linens. Good bathroom: two basins, bath, separate shower cabinet, and separate loo and bidet. But - as in so many hotels - the bathroom lighting is far too bright. The numerous spotlights could not be switched individually, and the one over the bath was particularly irritating. A dimmer would make a big difference.
The standard of housekeeping is generally high, though the tiling in the shower was in need of attention (mouldy!). There are no internal staircases, so one has to use the lifts. The route to the health club is via another lift, which is tiny (definitely not for the claustrophobic). One can get to the health club via the (enclosed) fire escape or by walking around the outside of the hotel...not good solutions! We didn't get a lot of sleep, because of the train line running below our window (the harbour-view suites may be quieter). We didn't take breakfast, because of the muzak. A pity, as the dining room was pleasant and overlooked the harbour. So...if you don't mind lifts, muzak and night-time train noise, this is a good choice. It's in a great location and the staff were generally friendly.
