... add up your bill, and probably aren't from London, or England either.
I go to the front desk and ask the "concierge" for some information about the Museum.
Do you know when it opens? No.
Is it free? I think so.
Is it far? I don't think so.
Should we walk or get transport, like a bus or train?
"Yes, the map says the Museum is just a few streets down. You should be able to walk there in a few ...
... the home of the coronation chair - a wooden, almost simple & rather uncomfortable looking throne that has been used in every royal coronation since the 1300's. The white & black checkered floor has been traversed by many famous feet - including Queen Elizabeth ll on her coronation day, Prince William & Kate on their wedding day, and the poll bearers of Princess Diana's coffin. It was definitely worth a second ...
If you’re thinking that this blog might not be my best work, you could be on to something. We have been up since 3:30am this morning, as we caught three night buses out to Heathrow Airport to meet mum and dad upon arrival. I am glad to say they both arrived safely and after convincing them to catch the tube with the new ‘London experts’ (that is Julie and I) spent an hour dealing with closures on the Piccadilly line and re-adjusting ...
Today was a laze around kind of day, mercifully, because I'm still recovering from whatever laid me out this past weekend. I needed my rest, so Aidan let me sleep--he went back to the Marble Arch Mariott and the Avis rental counter to pick up his phone and get me some more water and some fruit and high fibre seed bread to try and get my appetite back and *ahem* regulate things that have been...irregular as of late, if you catch my drift. It seemed to work. I spent the rest ...
... a surprise 50th for me! I was overwhelmed...I didn't know what to say! Those was decorated with yellow roses and gold plates and it was all just so breathtaking. Lili cooked beef stroggy which is my favorite dinner ever and no had told her that and after dinner we had a lemon cake with raspberrys which had three layers and tasted like heaven. Amazing.
And now again I'm all sleepy nd I need to go to bed and I have to say goodnight.
Im so sad to be loving my London family ...

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!
