London Day One

A travel blog entry by carolandmartin

We arrived safely after a 13 hour flight. Excellent flight with hardly any turbulence - always pleasing and the food was a 200% improvement on the food from previous flight.
We took the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station and decided to walk to our accommodation instead of taking the underground. What was supposed to be a ten minute walk …

Hav just finished a trip aroundKensington Gardens. As you will see we came across an old fashioned carousal and not only kids wer allowed on it. Very sore feet from walking and sunburnt feet. Ouch. Saw Dianas playground to children and her fountain which we got a small photo of. Her fountain goes around in a kind of circle and everyone is having a …

Keys, please!

We slept in late today, then when we woke up we had a message from Saumya. She had accidentally taken the keys to work that she was going to leave for us! We didn't mind though, cos we were happy to have a lazy day, and if we needed to, one of us could stay home to let the other in, so it was all good. I had a shower, then put some washing on, then spent some time sorting my bags a bit and having a cuppa. Darren got ready ...

... were seeing Matilda in the afternoon so we decided to take ourselves on a tour using the kids discovery guide they had been given. It ended up being a great way to do it. We saw all that interested us and the boys were focused on what they needed to answer and find. There were rooms full of armour and weapons. More than we’d seen before and we were able to get close and touch cannons and cannon balls and armour. It was set up very well. We also learnt some history along the ...

Wandering the City, and Ancient History

... However, I found it hard to enjoy the rest of the tour – the crowds were just so large in the museum that it made it difficult to really appreciate what I was seeing. The tour ended with during which I could have still wandered around, but after being on my feet all day (and really, for the last several days) I decided that I would call it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Vancouver Studios London

    Great place!

    from

    Spent 8 nights here. Rooms were comfortable and warm. Clean, reasonably priced hotel in a great area for restaurants, shops and public transportation. Friendly, responsive staff. Room was larger than expected. The 'king' bed was more like an American-sized queen, but comfortable. No elevator. Has an internet connection in the sitting room downstairs for 9p/min. The kitchen units don't have a method to make 'real' coffee... bring your own salt & pepper if you plan to cook. A couple of grocery stores nearby. Older washer/dryer in the basement which worked fine. We loved it here and recommend the Vancouver Studios as a great bargain!

    Good, but nothing special

    from

    Vancouver Studios is centrally located, with friendly staff, and is kept clean. In these matters, I agree with the previous reviews. However, the rooms are really small, there is no elevator (the stairs are way too narrow), rooms have no alarm clocks, there is little storage in your room, and the halls and one's room often stink of cigarette smoke. For the price, it is alright I suppose. But I can't accept (contrasting with budet hotels in NYC, Toronto, Paris) that I have to spend this much for so little. Having stayed in London before, I realize that I should be pleased with any small measure of quality under 100 pounds per night; after all, I did have a remote for my TV (which received a whopping 4 channels)! Surely there are better budget hotels in central London?

    Truly a Fabulous Hotel

    from

    After much, much, much research I picked Vancouver Studios. I am glad I put in the extra effort because I found a gem. They are recommended in Foder's travel guide and now I know why. First of all, the neighborhood of Bayswater is wonderful. The hotel is close to a train/subway station, to a shopping center, to great restaurants and to other destinations like Hyde Park, Notting Hill and Portabello Road. Secondly, the rooms were wonderful. My boyfriend and I stayed there the nights of June 23rd-27th and July 5th and because of our travel arrangements we stayed in a total of four rooms. First was room 29 which is a fair size for two. Super clean, great view facing the back and very quiet (except when the neighborhood was celebrating the Greeks winning the World Cup semi-final - what a great party). Then I moved to 37 (a single), it was tiny but perfect for one person with a slightly better view than 29 (just higher) and tidy. Then back to a double in number 4. This room was huge, giving us more than enough room but it faced the front of the building and was sidewalk-level which was much noisier than the first two rooms. The last room was 18 which again was a double (a bit bigger than 29) facing the back and quiet as can be. Every room had a kitchen which was great for tea and breakfast. Also keep in mind the place is several stories high and it is all stairs, be prepared to carry your luggage several flights unless you ask for a ground-floor room. I loved the Vancouver Studios. This hotel is an excellent value, with helpful and lovely staff. I will return for certain.

    Very Comportable Place

    from

    I chose this hotel based on TripAdviser's kind reviews, stayed for 5 days.(single room on 3rd fl.) My room and whole building was very clean, well heated, well suited. I had no trouble to make my own meal every morning. Neighborhood was quite, and there are several supermarkets, Fresh and Wild, Sainsbury, Some delis. If I have one more chace to visit London, I'll stay at Vancouver.

    Loved it for the money!!!

    from

    Stayed in Sept 2004

    I found Vancouver Studios to be a VERY clean, safe,

    quiet and centrally located. The rooms were new and cleaned daily. The staff was helpfull. The location was only a couple of blocks from the tube.

    Would stay there again. Good value for your money. Of course if you compare the size to US rooms it is small, but all things considered, it was GREAT!!!

    Value for money - and nice to boot!

    from

    Comfortable, well-serviced, and a great location. Added bonus of the lovely courtyard and lounge area with internet access. The kitchenette in my room was great for both saving money and being able to whip up that midnight snack.

    Great location, great price

    from

    we stayed for 6 nights and found it charming. There were 3 of us to the room was squeezy but after Paris it was great. Staff were helpful and the garden for our 5pm wines was great. Can't praise this enough - good value for our dwindling aussie dollars!

    Great hotel

    from

    I stayed at Vancouver Studios for about five days in December. The hotel was clean, charming, and the staff was courteous and attentive. The location is close to several areas of interest and it is a short walk to the Underground which makes it easy to see the rest of London. I highly recommend the place.

    Great stay at the Vancouver Studios

    from

    Just came back from 6 days together with my wife in London. We stayed at the Vancouver Studios, and found it VERY nice and quiet. The room was not very big, but clean, well equipped and more than warm enough in February. The people in the front desk were always friendly and helpful. Not a problem for us, but note that the stairs are a bit steep and narrow, and there is no elevator. The only thing we found could be improved was the temperature of the water in the shower, which could have been a bit warmer. Will definitely check for availability there first the next time we go to London.

    A very good hotel overall

    from

    I recently stayed here for a few days. I chose it because it had a kitchenette and had a lower rate for the winter. I have also stayed in Bayswater before and like the area. I wasn't disappointed. It is a well kept hotel. I stayed in a single room. It was small but fine for one person. There was a refrigerator, microwave, stove, sink, dishes, coffee maker and toaster. There are three grocery stores within a five minute walk. It was very convenient to make my own meals instead of eating out for every meal. The bed was very comfortable for a hotel.
