Hallo from what was London, now Amsterdam. Apparently the fast pace of the city caught up to me and there was so much to do I didn't exactly find time to blog. Five days was the perfect amount of time in London. I think I got to do everything I imagined and more. We had to leave Dublin at 4am to catch our flight but we couldn't resist one more …
I've just finished a 2 month contract in Utrecht, Netherlands and have flown into London for a couple of days before I start off on my big trip. The Hotel I'm staying in, Best Western Phoenix, has pretty small rooms but is cheap for London and very close to Paddington which makes getting to Heathrow a lot easier on the day I fly out. It would have …
After a quick, four-hour flight from Athens, I arrived at the new, impressive and quite modern Terminal 5 at London's Heathrow airport. While getting around the airport was easy, getting from the airport to my hotel near Kensington Gardens was not as simple. Several above and below ground trains and over an hour later, I arrived at the Bayswater …
... the river as you go. We saw a great pub which is one of the oldest in the city and was apparently frequented by thieves and smugglers back in the day. We would have liked to go and see it up close, but we had no idea how to get back there from the land!
At Greenwich we didn't have much time before things would be closing so we just went to the Royal Observatory. Which was interesting, lots of old clocks and telescopes and obviously the Meridian line.
Greenwich is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Phoenix Hotel London
My sister and I just got back from London where we stayed in the Kennsington Gardens area and near Hyde Park. This was our first time to London. We stayed at The Best Western The Phoenix Hotel. The staff was very very helpful. The daily breakfast was okay. That was the only meal they served at the hotel. There are many ethnic restaurants in the area. They do have a bar area if you wanted drinks in the evening. Our room was very small but clean. The water in the shower was warm. The only thing we had problems with was trying to get the heater to work. The hotel was conveniently located to the Bayswater Tube and Queensway Tube. The tube is very easy to take. We had high tea at the Orangery which is where the Kennsington Palace is located. Just a very short walk. Very lovely. We did a great tour with Golden Tours and booked it through our hotel. We saw a lot. You do need to know which no one told us was at Buckingham Palace the guards change every other day and only one time a day. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
I searched comments from here before booking and this was perfect.
Clean, convenient, reasonably priced. None of the scary things you read about other small, inexpensive London hotels like dirty sheets or no hot water.
Highly recommend this hotel!!!!
This hotel met all our expectations: good price, extremely clean, good service and great location with easy tube access for connecting to all of London. The deluxe continental breakfast was fresh and wonderfully presented. I loved our view of the Square and found the steet noise minimal. We would definitely stay here again.
Great starting point for doing London
Stayed her 3 days end of November, what a great place, only 2 minutes walk from Bayswater and 5 minutes from Queensway station, a shopping center around the corner, walking distance to Notting Hill markets, and plenty of restaurants to choose from on Queensway. Room was small but clean, nice beds, clean bathroom, not too big but the towels make this up, what a GREAT towels they have here: big, thick and soft.
The Phoenix Hotel is located in an older building in the Kensington Gardens area of London. The location is great as there are many shops (small groceries, restaurants, pubs, bars, green grocers, etc.) located within a few blocks. Also within a few blocks are two tube stops. I would stay there again.
I stayed here from 10/4-10/8 and loved this hotel. Great location, and price. The hotel was clean, helpful and the staff friendly and accomodating. We had a great room - I asked for a room that was away from street noise, plus being a Crown member - I received a bedroom with a loft (additional bed) - the extra room was wonderful. I would book this hotel again in a minute.
High on quality, low price Best Western Phoenix Hotel in London
I can highly recommend Best Western Phoenix Hotel for value for money. Tons of places to eat closeby and it very well located for all the shops Easy to get to Covent Garden theatres. Clean, well located and great value although rooms could be bit bigger. Also handy for the Portobello Market. Was recommended to use web reservation service called london-discount-hotel for the booking. Will definitely be using both of them again.
Lovely staff and clean room
I checked into this hotel last year after an argument I had with the front desk of my originally booked hotel. What persuaded me to check into this hotel were the friendly and pleasant staff at the front desk.
I loved my room which had a bed on a split level, though the shower was a bit small but not below London standards. I was a bit disappointed that there were no tea making facilities and glasses provided.
Breakfast was pleasant and there's a lounge where you can have a drink and quiet chat. I would want to return to this hotel, the plus point being that it is in a safe area and only minutes from Bayswater and Paddington station.
The hotel & our room was clean. The staff helpful & friendly. The room was large for London. The breakfast good but the same every morning. It was close to the tube and had several grocery stores and restaurants close by. The area was quiet. I would stay there again.
