Historical Traveler Reviews Enterprise Hotel London
We will go there, no more!
Again, the room given must be of an 'Internet Room'!! Why? Because on the first occassion, they gave us a room which is in the middle of two floors..and the door hits the bedside as soon as you open it! Not enough floor space to put our only two luggages! and the room smells!
Upon talking to a nice cleaner lady, she said there are other much better rooms! So, talked to the reception, and then found us another room which is a bit bigger..but it must be on the top-top floor where the windows is only the size of 3 square feets!! A small little fan is given though... Anyway, after some extensive walking tour in london, we just doze off w/o problem... We will never go back there again evenif there is a great bargain deal!! A plus point is that it is very close to the earl's court subway station, just 5 mins walk..great! Internet usage is chargeable..Advisable to use other internet cafe if indeed needed at all.
Pretty Darned Bad
If you enjoy bad odors and unfriendly staff, the Enterprise is for you!
The morning wake-up call is a bit unusual...the sound of someone clanking on the pipes next door. Rooms are small and I wouldn't recommend walking around barefoot on the carpeting. We had a great view of the dirty disgusting alley and the screen on the window appeared as though hadn't been cleaned since King George IV. The staff threatened to charge us for an extra person when we came home one night at 4 a.m.
and had a friend with us. One good thing was the water pressure in the shower was nice and temperature stayed hot. But, when you did shower the whole bathroom got wet.
Definitely NOT a 3 star hotel
I am not sure how this hotel ever got a 3 star rating. The hotel is not air conditioned but each room is given their own personal fan which on the 4th floor doesn't do a bit of good. You also could not leave the fan on during the days in hopes that it might cool the room down because there was a defeat switch for the electricity. When you handed over your key, you turned off the electricity in the room. The hotel is not well maintained - the elevator would not come down to the ground floor, you had to walk up one flight of stairs to get on it (the signs announcing this problem seem to have been there for awhile so I don't think there was any rush to fix it), the carpet on the steps has been there since the hotel opened, the doors are paper thin (while waiting for the elevator I could hear someone snoring!) and to top it all off, there was a foul smell in the bathroom. The only way I would give this hotel anything but a terrible rating is if they sent me all my money back. Pick another hotel!

... and I were walked out so we returned to the hotel to do some washing, rest and treat ourselves to a quiet dinner together in a little Italian restaurant that we had found. Stacey, Brett and the kids decided to visit The London Dungeons. This, according to the boys, was much better than the Ripper Walk; it is a wonder any of them slept that night as visions of ghosts, ghouls and methods of torture were relayed to Greg and I when they got back to the hotel.
... worth it, to have so many pictures and memories which we can look back on forever. We have learnt a lot about each other and ourselves on this trip and have learnt to appreciate life for what it is, what you make of it.
We hope you have enjoyed reading the VERY long blogs (sorry!) and enjoyed all the photos (Im sure most people skipped the blog for this, don't blame you). We loved reading your comments and felt closer to home ...
... located with easy tube and walking access to practically all of this fine town!!
They have been gracious and kind above and beyond providing a place to lay our weary heads at night. Some examples being; Greenie making us traditional Chinese hotpot and Jacksons guided tour of his place of work (the office of a small start up company you may have heard of called Facebook). They even brought two ...
... in use however opens it doors welcoming visitors to admire its beauty. Roy and Nathan explored a little further and found an underground tunnel that joined the Chapel and the Painted Hall. They surprised the rest of the group by turning up behind them, when everyone was waiting for them to come out of the chapel. Roy thought it was a great trick.
Upon leaving the church we were given a clear view of the new Greenwich Palace otherwise known as the ...
... unit, me too and off we headed. Good Lord, maybe I should have turned a corner coz that wind was fricken freezing:-( Anyhow we soldiered on and headed back to Hop on, Hop off and made a Blue Line to Westminster Abbey. I can't believe I was standing inside a building dating back to AD 960. It is truly a magnificent piece of architecture. This is a place I was keen to spend some time in as it is steeped in history. I am neither a monarchist ...
