Travel Blogs from London
After a lot of travelling alone for work, it was nice to go to London for a sales meeting and see all my colleagues again. Besides the 2-day meeting I also went for dinner with former T-Mobile colleagues Steven and Dhiraj which was truly great, so nice we're still in touch!
... hope I’m not getting sick. I think I’ll get a salad. We’re chatting as we head down the bottom and then his car just dies in the middle of the road. He restarts it and we continue on our way, but you can tell this worries him. We make it another five minutes before the entire electrical system conks out, this time for good. Philip maneuvers us off the road and before you know it there are three to four men looking under ...
I don't even know where to begin writing about my last group trip this past week.. In a matter of 9 days we saw 3 countries, used 3 different currencies, encountered multiple different languages, ate an abundance of delicious foods, and had an unforgettable experience. I could go on for pages and pages about everything we did and saw, but I don't think my words will do it justice (also, I don't want to completely bore you with endless blogs).
Thursday afternoon we landed ...
... London, The Temple Church region, and by several other historical landmarks in the city with Susie (one of the AHA directors) as our tour guide. The weather was sunny and beautiful today (supposedly a rarity) so we went to a pub called The Edgar Wallace to take a break from all of the walking and heat. I tried a pint of shandy and it did the job but was definitely not the Strongbow I had yesterday and this evening ;) After ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chamberlain Hotel London
This is a clean, well decorated, quiet hotel only a two minute walk from aldgate and tower hill tube stations. The rooms are a decent size, the bed is comfortable, and there is a tv in the bath! I did not use room service, but the prices of the meals on offer were reasonable, not like most other hotels. The area is a little quiet after working hours, but livelier places are only a few tube stops away.
I booked this hotel last minute and requested a non-smoking room. After I checked in I was allocated a smoking room and told that there were no others available. I went to the room and found it unacceptable and as such returned to reception to try and sort it out.
The Chamberlain Hotel is one of those rare places that actually looks in real life like it does in the publicity photos. Situated close to the Tower of London, but down a quiet street away from the beaten tourist track, the hotel's location offers convenient access to the whole of London by bus, tube and boat.
Convenient Business Hotel
I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. It offers consistent courteous service.
It sits above a pub. This is important to remember because taxi drivers can never find the hotel unless you mention the pub.
They will often argue about the existence of a hotel on the Minories!
The restaurants offer pretty boring cuisine and room service is very slow.
It isn't in the center of London, but is close to two tube stations and has many buses running by quite frequently.
It is very convenient for the Tower of London and offers really good weekend rates.
Booked this hotel online at the last minute as we needed a twin room. Many of the larger more well known hotels only had double rooms with it being a saturday night. Managed to get the room for a bargain £70.00.
It is a very good hotel. Unexpensive for London, very clean, good service from the staff, etc. Can strongly recommend it.
My wife and I stayed at the Chamberlain over Easter weekend (Thursday to Monday) in 2004. Before settling on The Chamberlain, I searched the Internet for hotel reviews and deals for almost as long as we stayed at The Chamberlain. It was worth the time researching the matter however. You may also enjoy discounted rates by joining the pub club that is sponsored by the hotel ownership for its pubs I have forgotten the name at the moment). I was able to join even though the club's Internet site stated that membership was confined to UK residents. When membership arrived in New York a few weeks after I mailed my application was description is "very fussy" about such things, evaluated the room as very comfortable. The furniture, accessories, and bathroom were in excellent taste. Everything worked perfectly during our stay and we had nothing to complain about at all. The room was quiet (we overlooked the back off the hotel), breakfast was included w and a couple of pub dinners were included as well (the restaurant was closed during the Easter weekend at dinnertime). During normal business times, however, the rates may not be subject to the kind of deal we obtained.
I stayed at this hotel in June and found it very nice. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, big enough and there is a plasma screen in every bathroom. The breakfast is very expensive (7 pounds per person) if you haven't booked the hotel on internet.
The hotel is a short stroll from Tower Hill station, and it's even more agreeable to go to the center by bus (number 15, every 5-10 minutes).
The area is very quiet especially during the week-end when all stores are closed. It's very safe though. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.
Location for business
This is a business hotel that's part of a pub. Contradication in terms? Well, yes.This hotel is very expensive due to one reason: it's located in the City of London and thus is quite handy for business. Otherwise, the location is not convenient for the tourist (or attractive being on a busy street.)The rooms are in good shape generally, but I found three broken items in the bathroom alone. And they stuck me with two twin beds even when I had upgraded to the "Executive" room for ?175!But, you say, the advantage is that you can have a late night drink at the pub! Wrong, you'll be shoed out with the regulars at closing time. No benefits for residents.So let's leave the pubs to the publicans and the hotels to the hoteliers, never the two to meet.
