... say is everyone should go see this attraction ASAP. I was living my dream of walking through some of the sets like Dagon Alley, drinking Butter Beer and I even got to ride a broom stick! It was the best day of my life. Afterwards we spent way to long in the Harry Potter store as well. Once we could finally bring ourselves to leave we headed back to the hotel to have a short power nap and relax for a bit. Once we woke up we headed to Picidilli Circus to meet ...
After being woken up by everyone this morning, Darren and I kept sleeping for a while before waking up and getting ready. It was the afternoon by the time we left the hostel, then we walked down the street to the Vodafone shop. It seemed really busy though, so we decided to get some food first. We walked down the same street as last night and went into a little takeaway place called The Chicken Spot, where we got a small pizza each for only £2.50 ...
... out to buy more wine as Deb and GJ came home so we popped out and grabbed some wine and came back to have a few glasses with them. When we were all feeling hungry we walked up to Edgeware Road and found an Indian restaurant for dinner, the waiter made a point of telling us that they don't serve alcohol before he gave us the menu.... we had already figured they wouldn't serve alcohol as this area is very much a muslim community... the men all sit outside smoking their hooka ...
... is pretty easy to work out given the map of it looks like a bowl of multicoloured spaghetti. You've just got to see the layers and links, and it all makes sense.
The Earl's Court hostel is only a couple of minutes from the station with a high street handy, and it has a kitchen so we are able to cook the food we like. Bolton Gardens where the hostel is located is a quiet residential street, and we are at the back of the hostel so it's nice and quiet at ...
... before I had suggested that we visit Trafalgar Square etc and then head out to Greenwich to see the “Cutty Sark”, the Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory. GG thought this was a good idea and whilst I waited for him to return from his trek I did some more reading of my guidebook.
He eventually returned with tales of native tribes and great sea voyages, well it seemed like it, he was gone a fair while…
Anyway, off we headed and made ...
Historical Traveler Reviews York House Hotel London
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was small but that's what I expected. It was good value compared with other similar places.
well...I went with my family on june 2006.
horrible experience. first, the rooms were definetely not what they appeared to be. yes they were somewhat spacious but the bedlight did not work, the smell was just horrible, you left the hotel smelling like indian food, the wireless is a lie. I had to go to the "lobby" to get online.then the bathroom is a disgrace, I mean a fat person cannot possibly use it, especially the shower, rotating positions is not an option, not even for us the slim ones. moreover, the staff is not helpful at all and rather rude. i definetely would never recommend this hotel to anyone, it's just the worst hotel i've ever been to. no joke
I agree with the recent posts that this hotel was a great bargain (33 British pounds for one night = $66USD) & very clean. The staff was very friendly. My single room was small but had clean towels, a closet sized kitchenette (coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, sink, countertop), and my own private bathroom in the room, nicely tiled from floor to ceiling. Very close to Earl's Court Tube spot. Would definitely stay here again as I felt very safe, even as a single female traveler. No complaints for a budget traveller!
A good bargain!
Hotel was recently refurbished so facilities is quite clean. Bathroom is small but manageable, have a lift to all floors. Have TV (limited channels), frig, kettle and mini electric stove. Provides towels but no complimentary shampoo, soap etc. Simple breakfast of toast, hard boiled eggs, cheese, cereal, juice and coffee. Card access to rooms, public computer with internet access in main lobby (pay 1 pound for 15 mins usage). The room is on the 3rd floor, faced the street, but the tree-lined street is nice, quiet and residental. 1 block away from the Earls Court tube station and 2 blocks away from restaurants and Tesco supermarket is nearby. Tube is on the district, circle and piccadilly lines - easy access to most tourist sites. A good bargain, will definitely stay again.
There's always a sense of dread when booking a cheap hotel over the interweb but holding out for two nights at just £33 each via Wotif proved to be a resounding success with the York Hotel.
I was there beginning of Sept. I got a single room in the hotel basement. It was so humid that my bed sheets and towel were always WET. Even my clothes, in my bag, were humid when I left the hotel.
Every 10 minutes you could hear a loud noise. It was the undergroud, you could hear and feel. Very annoying at night. On hotel website, you could see a nice room with kitchen. Forget kitchen in single room. All you get is a toaster and a coffee maker.
However, staff were friendly and breakfast ok. it was also very clean.
Cheap but very cheerful
Couldn't believe th eprice i got this hotel for £38 a night including breakfast
quiet location, friendly staff, clean rooms
few complaints would be the noise of other guests, but thats outside the managements control
also some of the stuff looks new and hurried, plugs not properly screwed into the wall etc
but overall i would thoroughly recommend this hotel to those looking a budget break in london
We arrived at Heathrow at 5.00am and found an internet site at the airport. Searched the internet and with a map of London that we had downloaded before we left, found this hotel. We knew from the map that Earls Court was easy to get to on the Underground and it was. We were only in London for one night and the York Hotel was perfect for this.
Great value, clean, quiet & convenient
We booked to stay in London for 3 nights, 22-24 June 2006, and were fearing the worst, as the prepaid charge was only 42 pounds per night, inc breakfast. What a pleasant surprise we had !
The rooms have recently been refurbished, and everything listed on the hotel website was clean & working. The room was an architectural triumph; fitting everything into such a small space, but for the price paid we won't complain that access to the bed is from one side only, and there is only room for one person to move around at a time. The hotel is on a quiet road, but only 3 minutes walk to Earls Court underground station. What more does a tourist need.
Stayed at York Hotel 1st weekend July. Overall OK. Location very convenient. Staff pleasant & generally helpful. Arrived early & room not ready which was fine but there was no luggage storage facility. Man at desk did offer to look after bags but leaving them in a lobby which is usually though not always occupied did not seem very secure. In any event nothing went missing thankfully.
